For grown women everywhere, Mr. Idris Elba revived that horrible habit of being attracted to bad boys. Elba’s role as the outrageously sexy corner/corner office guy, Stringer Bell, was memorable. Since his untimely departure from the show, Elba has been one busy man. 

Besides DJing and rapping, he’s also gotten behind (well, and in front of) the camera to direct a Mumford and Sons video called “Lover of the Light.” 

As far as acting, Elba has been in numerous movies including controversially (for some folks) playing in "Thor." Elba has won a Golden Globe for his title role in the detective series "Luther" and he was a fan favorite on "The Office."  

Rumor has it that Elba may be the next James Bond on screen.

Before her foray into reality TV, Shaunie O’Neal was best known as NBA star Shaquille O’Neal’s wife, but the former Fox Film marketer and TV correspondent established her own identity once she began building her own entrepreneurial empire. She started in 2010 with the creation of VH1’s Basketball Wives, which became a breakout success. Eventually, O’Neal created her own production company entitled, Amirah Inc., and developed her second reality series, Football Wives before launching a shoe line with Chinese Laundry. With a net worth already estimated around $35 million, O’Neal should pad her pocketbook even further when she release her debut book, which she plans to release in the near future.
