Thriving Thursday. Love is the word of the day and if Jay-Z gets his way, he'll have Kanye West and Kim Kardashian ringing wedding bells in the near future. While a possible marriage looms, new buzz is out about why OKC's James Harden called it quits on Trina. Going a little further down South, Bun B's got a nice little pretty thing that just so happens to be a star on "Basketball Wives." All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. And Then There Was KimYe

We've all been infected with a bit of KimYe fever over these past six months (or has it been longer?) From their infatuation with taking photos together, co-signs from other entertainers and Kris Humphries apparently boiling over all of this, it looks like Jay-Z wants to see these two finally take the next step and put a ring on it. Bossip has the scoop on this Star Magazine exclusive:


According to the print edition of Star Magazine Jay-Z has been encouraging his "little brother" Yeezy to waste no time in wedding Kim Kardashian: ["Kanye West runs everything about his professional and personal life by Jay," an insider tells Star. "When Kanye mentioned that he thinks Kim is a keeper, Jay said, "Then don't risk losing her - put a ring on her finger!'" One person who's less impressed? Beyonce! "Beyonce isn't as keen on Kim as Jay is," says the source. "She thinks Kanye should take a wait-and-see approach."] Poor Kimmy Cakes still hasn't won over Bey Bey we see... Do you think maybe she's just salty it took her and Hov forever to get down the aisle? How long do you think until KimYe ties the knot? (Bossip)

Could Jay-Z really be behind KimYe nearing a marriage proposal? It's hard to think that Beyonce would be opposed to this, but then again, she is more of the traditional type. Are we ready to see Kanye finally let go of Alexis Phifer and make Kim his forever-lasting love? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Tell It Like It Is

It's always sad to see great couples break-up, even if it was just a short-lived relationship like with what James Harden and Trina had. Actually, the relationship was so one-and-done that it left a lot of us scratching our heads when we found out that it was over. All Hip Hop Rumors has the scoop on why this romance didn't have a chance at lasting:

James Harden dumped Trina? Apparently, these two were dating in public view and I totally missed it! Maybe Sydney Lace caught it earlier this year...I don't know (here is some of it). Anyway! It would seem that they are no more and James did the dump truck move on the Miami mistress. Why? Rumor has it the folks in the NBA were clowning him because he had her all with his family at the NBA games and stuff. I think all this clowning started with the fact that Trina was dating L.A. Clipper Kenyon Martin for the longest. And he even had her lip-print tatted on him. He ended up covering that up. Apparently, she went to London and was with him then. That's when it became too much for him to bear. James wasn't able to take the jokes and the pressure Trina was putting on him to be his "wife." Apparently - and this is the harsh part - he did it over a text message giving her the heave-ho. No pun intended. I just realized that James Harden is only 22, but with that beard he looks like he's 32. Trina is 33 for anybody that cares. She still looks good. (All Hip Hop Rumors)

Could Harden have really buckled under the pressure? Even worse, who breaks up over text messages anymore? Isn't that kinda, played out? Should he have considered Skype instead? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. We Do It Big

It's been a while since Bun B graced any big headlines. The last thing he really got a ton of acclaim for was that five-mic album back in summer 2010. Well, fast-forward a couple years and he's back heating up the Internet, although this time it's because of an alleged romance? Media Take Out has the latest on this:


August 23, 2012: Basketball Wives star Draya has a very INTERESTING relationship with Houston rapper Bun B. The two have been FLIRTING with each other for the past few months on Twitter. And yesterday, Draya released some STEAMY texts that she sent to BUN - where she implied that she wanted him to EAT DA BOX!!! Not sure what this is about . . . but be careful Draya. Mess with a guy like BUN and he'll be spending your BASKETBALL WIVES checks while your GARGLING OLD MEN BALLZ on the heaux stroll . . . (Media Take Out)

Could these two really be something special? Seems like Bun B has always been low-key when it comes to his personal/romance life, so for him to get involved in a high-profile, gossipy relationship like this seems too trill to be real. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning buzz from your favorite gossip sites.
