Mehgan's Social Media:


Mehgan James was born in Houston, Texas, on February 11, 1990. She grew up in Texas City County, attending a local high school. As a young child, she was always interested in make-up and runways. She achieved her bachelor’s degree in Communication at the University of Houston.

Due to her voluptuous figure and sensual looks, she has earned the nickname “The Texas Temptation” amongst her fans. She is most famously known as a reality television star who has appeared on popular shows such as Bad Girls Club (2006 to 2017), Bad Girls All-Stars Battle (2013), Basketball Wives L.A. (2015), and Notorious Queens (2021).

James started dating N.B.A. basketball player Kendrick Brown, getting her the spot on Basketball Wives L.A. in 2015. James came out in an interview about her relationship with Brown and stated that he had cheated on her, and she ended their relationship. In season nine, she got into a physical altercation with another woman on the show called Brandi Maxiell — after this interaction, James left the show. In 2016, James had a Twitter argument with television star Keke Palmer. Palmer commented on James’ performance in Bad Girls Club as “weak and corny”. James responded on Twitter by calling Palmer a “hater.”

An all-out feud broke out between the two stars on Twitter after this.

James is described as easygoing and loves lazing around and spending time at home. Her inspiration comes from watching other celebrities work hard to achieve their goals. She admits in an interview that life after being a reality T.V. star is not as glamorous as it may seem.
