Basketball Wives

In an all new interview, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada opens up about her relationship with fiance Chad Ochocinco, even revealing their wedding plans (hint- next summer). Evelyn also discusses costar Meeka’s lawsuit and her relationship with Jennifer today.

When it comes to her fiance Chad, Evelyn promises his surprising romantic gestures such as having dinner on the beach in a recent episode aren’t just for show. “He’s very spontaneous. He’s like that all the time; it wasn’t just for TV,” said Evelyn to Miami New Times. As for her wedding plans with Chad, Evelyn wouldn’t divulge much details though she did reveal it will take place “definitely next summer.” She adds that a newlywed types spin-off show is not out of the question.

Evelyn was also very vocal about Meeka Claxton’s lawsuit against Tami Roman for battery. “My honest opinion is that it is ridiculous. I think she is doing it for attention,” said Evelyn. “When you sign up for a show, you have to know that everything isn’t going to be peaches and cream. Not everyone is going to be BFFs. It’s a reality show. Fights are going to happen.” Apparently getting sucker punched in the face comes with the territory of doing the show.

And despite her past hangups with Tami, Evelyn makes it clear she is Team Tami. “After Tami and I got over our drama, we genuinely like each other. Our loyalty is with her,” she said. As for her friendship with Jennifer Williams, Evelyn reveals all is now well except that Chad and Jennifer are no longer speaking.

“It is awkward for me. We run into each other on South Beach and they don’t speak,” said Evelyn. “Chad doesn’t comment, but the fact we bumped into her one day at the movies on Mother’s Day and he didn’t speak says a lot without saying anything.” As we reported, the reunion show was taped just over a week ago and Evelyn tweeted pictures of the risque Herve Leger dress she wore. Those pics are below!

In other Basketball Wives news, TMZ is reporting Royce Reed suffered a seizure during a charity softball game on Saturday.

Sources reveal that after playing in the game and signing autographs for fans, Royce pulled a hamstring muscle and when she went to go sit down, she passed out.

Once Royce came to, she was surprised to hear she suffered a seizure as she stated she had never experienced one before. The paramedics were called though Royce declined to go to the hospital. The good news is Royce is however feeling fine today and told friends a combination of exhaustion, stress, the heat and her diet caused the episode.

A new episode of Basketball Wives airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7 and a preview clip is below!

 

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON EVELYN’S INTERVIEW, ROYCE’S SEIZURE AND TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

Welcome back to the States, Basketball Wives! Jen gets her single on, Royce potentially gets her acting on, and Suzie is back in the middle of everything, yet again. Evelyn celebrates a milestone with her daughter, and she and Chad show a different side of their relationship. Tami makes a couple of cameos, and Shaunie is totally absent. Must be jet lag.

Tami is meeting with Royce to “bring her up to speed” on what happened in Italy. Tami still isn’t Meeka’s biggest fan (to put it mildly) and tells Royce there was an altercation. Tami brags that she at least got one swing in, and Royce asks, did you land it? A friendship made in Heaven. Royce makes the keen observation that you can take the girl out of the ghetto, but you can’t take the ghetto out of the girl.

Al Reynolds (yes, Starr Jones’ ex) is apparently Jen’s best guy friend and she is so excited to meet up with him while he’s in town visiting. His first question about her new single lady condo is “have you broken it in yet?” Jen asks, “What, the bed?” “The bed, the bathroom…” Oh, Al, you just took me into the bathroom with you and Starr Jones. I am scarred for life. He wants to set up Jen, and she wants no blind dates–she needs to see the goods. They decide that Jen needs a tall dude with a tall bank account.

Meeka Claxton, Tami Roman

After attacking her costar Meeka Claxton in Rome on the last episode of Basketball Wives, it seems Tami Roman is now trying to get Meeka kicked off the show.

Days after Meeka sued Tami for assault and battery, rightfully so if you’ve seen the footage, TMZ is now reporting Tami has given the show’s producers an ultimatum. Tami told the producers that if Meeka is allowed to return next season, she will quit the show. The reason? It all has to do with Meeka’s lawsuit of course.

Tami tells TMZ the lawsuit was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Tami states she knows “things got out of hand” with Meeka and that she’s “embarrassed” that things got violent.

But get this, Tami says she was willing to forgive and forget until Meeka decided to sue. Um shouldn’t Meeka be the one doing the forgiving and forgetting? Now Tami is saying, “I will NOT work with someone who is suing me, when they know what this situation is all about. I want to be clear, if she returns in any way, form or fashion I do not plan on participating.”

A rep for Meeka had no comment.

My take is that Tami is absolutely nuts and delusional. Right after TMZ broke the news of the fight, she kept stating she was simply defending herself against Meeka. But as the footage revealed, she absolutely was the aggressor and physically attacked a defenseless Meeka. Now Meeka is not a saint and brought a lot of the drama on herself, however she did not deserve to be physically attacked by Tami.

Plus wasn’t Tami the same woman threatening to sue Evelyn during this season? Also, reality stars usually sign multi-year contracts with the networks for their reality shows so it might not be Tami’s choice on whether or not she will be returning to the show. A new episode of Basketball Wives airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST AND TAMI’S ULTIMATUM? WAS MEEKA RIGHT TO SUE?

On last night’s Basketball Wives, all hell broke loose between Tami and Meeka in a Roman nightclub, Jevelyn kissed and made up, and Suzie found herself stuck in the middle of things…and getting back in good with the mean popular girls because of it.

After the fight over Jen’s radio interview, Tami is able to break into Evelyn’s room. She’s lying in bed and Shaunie asks her to please talk to Jen and see how upset she is. Evelyn is indifferent to Jen’s teary apology, but she quickly warms as Jen’s waterworks turn on full force. Jen can see why Evelyn was upset, Evelyn hates to see her friend cry, and the two hug it out.

The group heads to dinner and Tami makes a huge ordeal about not wanting to sit next to Meeka. She then begins imitating Meeka with a forced whisper and Shaunie and Evelyn are stuck in high school as they can’t contain their giggles. When Meeka tells Tami to grow up (not smart, Meeka), Tami is not amused. Apparently, before the pair met, Meeka talked crap about Tami’s weave, and Tami thinks that is not okay coming from a transvestite Mary J. Blige. Mary J. Blige drag queens everywhere are understandably insulted. Tami and Meeka start arguing, and Evelyn tells the table what Meeka told her about Tami’s weave. Finally Meeka admits that her comment wasn’t necessarily nice, and Tami wants to know why she didn’t talk her weave trash to Tami’s face. Well, that’s easy! Tami’s weave looked good when Meeka finally met her. And the ladies think Meeka talks in circles. Please!

The upcoming episode of Basketball Wives is shaping up to be the most dramatic of the season.

Last week Evelyn Lozada confronted long time friend Jennifer Williams about some things she said in a radio interview.  Tonight everything comes to a head as Tami breaks into Evelyn’s hotel room so that Jennifer and Evelyn can hopefully make amends. Also Tami and Meeka get into a fist fight which might have led to Meeka quitting the show. But more on that later!

As for that infamous radio interview, Jen is still defending what she said. She tells Hollywood Life, “[E]verything I said in that interview, I have said before and to her face in Season Two.” Jennifer also discusses Evelyn’s reaction to the interview, and how she wishes that Evelyn had confronted her first, instead of allowing the drama to fester.

Jen says, “I also feel like all the talks with Noe, Shaunie and Tami were unnecessary. I have known Evelyn for over a decade and if she has an issue with me she should have come straight to me. Talking to a bunch of people only instigates things and when Evelyn gets mad she just lets it build, instead of dealing with it right away in a calm manner.”

While she stands behind her statements, Jen hopes this drama will not be the end of her friendship with Evelyn. She continues, “I do want to say that as a friend I would never do anything intentional to hurt anyone’s feelings. Evelyn and I have been through a lot and hopefully we will make it over this hurdle as well.”

Moving on to Tami Roman and Meeka Claxton as they have had a rocky relationship (if you could even call it that) all season, and Tami has been making not so subtle digs at Meeka throughout the ladies’ Italian getaway. Those digs become blows this evening as the women get into a knock-down-drag-out brawl while out clubbing in Rome.

The fight has resulted in a lawsuit with Meeka suing her co-star for assault and battery. Tami responded on her twitter page, “I was unaware of this pending lawsuit until getting word from my publicist, to which I have no comment.” She later added, “I was defending myself-I didn’t attack her.” Guess we’ll have to see on tonight’s episode.

The TV Guide preview also states someone will quit the show tonight. All signs are pointing to Meeka! Wowzers. And finally, the reunion is taping today. Here’s to hoping Tami the ladies will keep their hands to themselves.

SHOULD EVELYN HAVE GONE TO JENNIFER FIRST? WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON REGARDING TAMI VERSUS MEEKA?

Holy lawsuit drama! TMZ is now reporting that Basketball Wives star Meeka Claxton has filed a lawsuit against her costar Tami Roman for assault and battery.

This all stems from a nightclub fight that took place in Rome, Italy last month. And yes this is the same fight that will be shown on the upcoming episode of the VH1 show. According to reports, things came to ahead between both ladies when Tami decided to punch Meeka in the face leading to a fist fight.

In the lawsuit filed yesterday in New York, Meeka alleges Tami “assaulted, battered, beat, threatened, menaced, attacked, jumped on, pushed to the ground, thrashed, punched, and shoved” her causing serious injury.

Meeka is seeking unspecified damages stating the incident cost her a day of filming — and put her through an emotional and physical hell. Tami has yet to respond to the lawsuit. But err does Tami have any money to pay out?

In other news, the Dancing With The Stars casting rumors continue to heat up! The latest reality star in the season 13 casting rumor mill? None other than Evelyn Lozada! TMZ is reporting the VH1 reality star is indeed in talks to do the show.

Sources connected to the show reveal, “Dancing” producers love the idea of having Evelyn on the show — especially since she’s engaged to Chad who was a previous contestant.”

Yes if Evelyn signs that dotted line, she would be following in the footsteps of her NFL fiance Chad Ochocinco who did the show last year during season 10. Chad would be able to give his fiance some tips as he actually made it to the semi-finals during his season.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LAWSUIT? TEAM MEEKA OR TEAM TAMI? DO YOU WANT TO SEE EVELYN ON DANCING WITH THE STARS?

On last night’s episode of Basketball Wives, Evelyn receives Jen’s interview and confronts her BFF, while Shaunie and Tami try their best to play peacemakers. Meeka feels the wrath of Tami, Royce is still MIA, and Suzie prays she continues flying under the radar so as not to be the brunt of the mean girls’ frustrations!

In Italia, the ladies go shopping and take full advantage of their time abroad by making fun of Royce, and this time, it’s Tami, not Suzie sticking up for her. Suzie and Tami wax poetic about the architecture interspersed with musings about Meeka’s talking out of her a*s at the previous night’s dinner. For someone who wanted to stay out of things, Suzie keeps getting pulled into the mix, as Meeka then pulls her aside to discuss how Meeka has never said anything bad about Royce and how she doesn’t care if Tami doesn’t like her. Sure, we’ll go with that.

Meeka feels like it’s four (Evelyn, Tami, Shaunie and Jennifer) against one, and she’s the odd-man-out…and Suzie, she’s a non-factor (of the muthaf*ckin’ variety, I assume) as she never takes sides during fights. At lunch, Tami starts talking to Shaunie about how she doesn’t like being put in situations where she has to hang out with people she doesn’t like…which would be understandable if she wasn’t sitting across from Meeka when she begins the conversation. Seriously? She is goes from passive aggressively talking about Meeka to aggressively talking to at Meeka. Did they start drinking at breakfast, because this is clearly an alcohol fueled confrontation…or at least I hope it is.

On tonight’s Basketball Wives, Evelyn Lozado confronts Jennifer Williams about a radio interview she gave regarding Evelyn’s engagement to Chad Ochocinco. On last week’s episode, Evelyn and her friend Noe implied Jennifer was jealous of the engagement, and Jennifer is now speaking out about it.

Jennifer tells the HollywoodLife, “I just want to clear the air about this whole Evelyn and Chad engagement. Evelyn did not call and tell me that she got engaged, she tweeted something and people starting asking me. So I was waiting for her to call me and tell me the news, and she didn’t tell me for quite some time.”

Watching last week’s episode was surprising to her as well. She reveals, “For her and Noe to imply that I was jealous was a little shocking. I have no need to be jealous, I have been married and I know what it is like to be a wife.” And now she’ll know what it feels like to be an ex-wife once her divorce to Eric Williams is finalized.

Jennifer claims she was merely stating her concerns about her friend’s relationship with Chad. In fact she reveals she told Evelyn the same, admitting, “When I did speak to her [about her engagement], I expressed my concerns because she had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I didn’t want to see her hurt again. Evelyn and I were friends way before this show. I have watched her and helped her through two breakups with Antoine Walker just as she has watched me get married and helped me cope with my divorce.”

Moving right along to sh*t stirrer Shaunie O’Neal who has recently spoken out about, specifically the portrayal of black women on the show. With the new Los Angeles cast already raising eyebrows, Shaunie has a lot to say, and she’s mainly pointing fingers at the West Coast ladies for being ‘trashy.’ She tells BET, “The L.A. cast — there are some wives and fiancés, which I’m fine with. But there’s a little bit of trash kind of sprinkled into that cast that I’m totally against.”

In case you planned on blaming her for any Los Angeles drama, as she is Executive Producer of the series, Shaunie is quick to say, “I was really very hands off with that cast. It’s just drama and…that’s not my vision. I don’t think that all money is good money. I don’t need it that bad. So we are having some issues.” So how is the show’s creator handing the issues? Two words: she’s not. Why would she? Issues create drama and drama drives the ratings! Although according to Shaunie, it seems she lost the fight to have less drama. She admits, “I’ve kind of just had to take a backseat and shut up and just let it go, let it ride. It’s David and Goliath right now.”

So tonight’s battle will be between Jennifer and Evelyn over the radio interview, while next season’s battle will be between the Executive Producer and the new cast stealing said producer’s limelight over acting like ladies and not causing drama. Can’t wait to see how each plays out!

DO YOU THINK JENNIFER IS JEALOUS OVER EVELYN’S ENGAGEMENT? DO YOU BELIEVE SHAUNIE WANTS LESS DRAMA ON THE SHOW?
