So far, on the third season of VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop”, viewers have gotten to see aspiring model and video vixen Tahiry Jose in her many forms.

What also has been evident about the Dominican bombshell has been the fact that she still has feelings for her ex-boyfriend Joe Budden even if they aren’t together.

While some may wonder if Tahiry and Budden might ever get back together, a Wednesday report from UrbanBelleMag.com has seemed to throw a curveball to such hopes.

On Wednesday night, the Phoenix Suns snapped the Los Angeles Lakers three game wining streak.

The Suns were led by Michael Beasley’s season high 27 points, while the Lakers have now lost eight straight on the road.

In a rather slow-paced first half, the Lakers suffered 12 turnovers as the game was tied 41-41. The Lakers seized the lead in the 3rd quarter and appeared to be on their way towards a 4th straight victory. However, a 29-13 run by the Suns in the 4th quarter would snatch away the victory.

After catching up with Ismael Salas this past weekend in Las Vegas during Lucas Matthysse’s knockout victory over Mike Dallas Jr. inside of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, I made a point to swing through and check out the Cuban trainer in camp with his latest pupil, Jorge Linares.

Overseeing the two-division world champion inside of the Long Life Fit Gym on Wednesday afternoon, Salas seems enthused by the prospect of trying to resurrect Linares’ career.

Undoubtedly one of the game’s finer talents, Linares suffered a pair of bloody and debilitating TKO defeats to Antonio DeMarco and Sergio Thompson in October of 2011 and March of 2012 that left his career hanging with serious questions.

During our conversation after their training, Salas spoke on his first ten days working with Linares while also taking time to speak on two of his former charges, WBA junior featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux and former featherweight titlist Yuriorkis Gamboa.
