It was the slap heard 'round VH1, and it preceded the bare-footed table jumping that will surely be an event at the next summer Olympics if Evelyn Lozada has her way. At the very least, it should be some new Derby parlor game!
Well, are they or aren't they? All of the gossip lately surrounding Basketball Wives: L.A. is that the show won't be returning for another season. However, thanks to an overly eager cast, we're getting word now that we'll be treated to yet another round with these wackadoos!
Not only did Draya Michele post the above picture on her Instagram, she claims that it was taken while filming new episodes. Brooke Bailey also dished on the upcoming season at a recent event.
Sometimes I just want to give Royce Reed a high five. Sure, she's been unlucky in love and she got fired from Basketball Wives, but she always keeps things real…especially when she's dealing with former co-star Evelyn Lozada. She doesn't back down, does she?
Recently, Evelyn has told any media outlet that would listen that she's learning to be a better, more peaceful person. She even went on Iyanla Vanzant's "Fix My Life" last September where she told the self-help guru that she's working towards becoming a woman of God. Of course, that sentiment flew out the window last week when Evelyn resurrected her favorite phrase in an interview with Upscale calling Royce a non-m-effing-factor.
Anthony Nelson, a high school senior, reached out to Evelyn via Twitter, inviting the star to be his prom date. Much to his surprise – I imagine – she happily accepted. Can you imagine? It's not every day that a high school student shows up to prom with a smoking hot reality TV star on his arm.
"I had the absolute time of my life and never experienced anything like this before because I wasn't able to attend my own prom," Evelyn shared. "I felt so special. Anthony is a really good kid, his family was so sweet, and everyone welcomed me with open arms. We all had a great time!"
Evelyn, 37, didn't attend her own prom because she was pregnant at the time.
Cue the veiled attempts to sweep the ugliness that is Basketball Wives under the rug! Forget all about wine-bottle hurling, table jumping, and rotten fish pranks, Shaunie O'Neal is morphing from being a puppet master for the violent antics of others into a legitimate do-gooder. More power to her!
Even better? She's teaming with everyone's favorite (props to you, Taylor Armstrong!) legitimate doctor, Dr. Charles Sophy, to make it happen. Look out, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder! Shaunie has a cause, and it's focused (no pun intended) on you! I kid, I kid. Kudos to Shaunie for what she's doing to help the less fortunate who have children suffering from ADHD.
Her ex-husband threw a drink in her face. Her ex-best friend's pal slapped her at a Derby party. Heck, her ex-best friend even took off her shoes and ran across a dining room table at her like a crazed banshee! It's certainly not easy being Jennifer Williams, that's for sure…
The former Basketball Wives star has had her fair share of drama, and since dropping her lawsuit against former bestie Evelyn Lozada's slapping assistant friend, Jennifer has flown relatively under the radar. Of course, once a reality star, always a reality star, so we may be seeing more of the aloof make-up maven in the future.
