Party Lines Slideshow: Bun B, Taraji Henson, Keri Hilson, and More at 2010 VH1 Hip Hop Honors

Tonight VH1 airs the latest edition of its Hip Hop Honors series, this time paying tribute to the Dirty South. The show was shot last week at Hammerstein Ballroom, however, and it was there where we got Bun B to tell us the story behind his line "Chilling like Kathie Lee and Hoda": "My wife is a big Today show fan. We usually watch from 7 to 9, but every now and then it kind of leaks over into that 9 to 10 hour, and, you know, they get to have their mimosas, and [my wife] wants her mimosa, and it just turns into a whole other thing. I think she just cuts it on just to see if they’re drinking in the morning, so that maybe we can have a drink, too. It gives her an excuse. So keep up the good work, Kathie Lee and Hoda."
