Sources tell TMZ that the Basketball Wives star’s car was re-homed earlier this month with a “no-return order,” which means even once she pays the bill she’s still not getting the car back!
Jenn owes a whopping $92,000 on the 2006 white Bentley, which is allegedly already scheduled to hit the auction block. Despite the car going to a new home, Jennifer is still responsible for the remaining balance. No bueno!
If there’s one thing we know for certain, it’s that reality TV and BFF-hood don’t mix. Repeat: Do not come on a reality show with your BFFL and expect it to be buddy-buddy 4 eva. It seems the second the cameras start rolling and the editing kicks in – along with the drinks and the contracts stipulating drama, fights, and backstabbing, the individual interviews and the out-famewhoring and jealousy – these long-time friendships melt faster than an ice cube in a toaster.
Friendship divorces have come to dominate reality TV and sadly it was often those friendships that got us hooked on the show in the first place. When a friendship divorce happens, often it leaves the fans as divided as the main characters.
So here’s to the used-to-be friends and their friendship divorces. So sorry it didn’t work out – but sometimes one person’s loss is another’s gain! Big things can come from public relationship break-ups.
Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our most memorable friendship divorces.
Uh-oh… somebody has a case of the She by SheBrokes! Jennifer Williams is about to be out of an expensive car that it looks like she can’t afford!
TMZ is reporting that Jenn’s Bentley is on the verge of repossession after the reality star stopped making payments on the car – and now the company is taking her to court. Jenn’s lawyer is going to be making the big bucks this year – maybe he can buy the Bentley from her.
The Basketball Wives star bought her USED white Bentley in 2006 and way back in 2009 stopped making payments on the car. I guess it was old news by then! Unfortunately three years later the Toyota Motor Credit Corporation in Syosset, NY decided to file a lawsuit against Jenn because they want the car back. And they mean business.
Rumors have been swirling about the cast of next season’s Basketball Wives. Have Jenn Williams, Kesha Nichols, and Royce Reed been handed their walking papers? While Jenn and Kesha have remained mum on the gossip, both Royce and producer/Queen Bee Shaunie O’Neal have taken to twitter (where else?) to add their two cents. Deny, deny, deny! Shocking, I know.
After the news broke, Royce tweeted, “This is so entertaining!!! Gotta love TMZ!”
Shaunie chose to respond in a manner that didn’t really answer any definitive questions. It’s not surprising, knowing how well she’s mastered the ability to double talk. She responded to a follower’s question about the firings by saying, “Let’s just say… I will not entertain anything but the truth hence me not replying 2 this RUMOR of the day.” So…what you’re saying is?
As if any of you were planning to watch the fifth season of Basketball Wives, I have some breaking news that may just send you over the edge completely. TMZ.com is reporting that three of the ladies (and yes, these may actually be considered ladies) are getting axed from the show. While nothing has been confirmed, VH1’s official statement is, “We don’t comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.” However, when you hear who is getting the boot–and why–I doubt you’ll be surprised.
First to hit the road is Royce Reed. Why? I would say it’s obvious. First, a lot of the women, including Queen Bee Shaunie O’Neal herself, refuse to film with Royce. I am guessing that makes it more difficult to have a legitimate story line. She doesn’t go on the cast trips, isn’t invited to birthday dinners, and misses out on all the bottle throwing and brawls. Lucky. Second, due to a gag order that has been in place since 2009, she isn’t even allowed to say the name of the basketball player to whom she was never a wife. Sorry, Royce, but the writing seems to be on the wall for you.
John Salley is back to lead us through the second installment of the Basketball Wives reunion special. Last night’s portion proved to be more of a train wreck than the first time around which was basically just one giant PR move. I don’t know about y’all, but I am ready to say good riddance to these “ladies” for a very long time.
John reminds us of Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco’s relationship. Besides the Masarati, I wonder if Evelyn can watch this and not see how poorly he speaks to her. Chad is funny and all, but she is a doormat with him! Evelyn promotes the couple’s spin-off for a bit, happy she has the opportunity to show viewers a softer side. John then segues into listing Royce Reed’s relationships throughout the seasons. Of Dezmon Briscoe, Royce will only say curtly that they are doing “good.” John reminds her of Dezmon and his baby mama’s twitter drama. Royce says she chose to stay with him for all the things he did right instead of the one thing he did wrong. Footage of her fight with her father is shown. John jokes that Royce is a crybaby, and he pretty much sides with her dad while doling out his own fatherly advice. John also shows clips from her New York acting debut that ended up on the cutting room floor. Tami Roman reveals she was pleasantly surprised at Royce’s talent. John touts that as quite a compliment because he believes Tami is an amazing actress. Huh?
Good gracious, last night was the Basketball Wives Reunion, and I must say I was a tad scared to watch it. The majority of those ladies (bwahahaha!) are seriously unhinged. Once again, John Salley hosts the parade of crazy. He begins by introducing the veterans–Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman, Suzie Ketcham, and Royce Reed, followed by the newbies–Kesha Nichols and Kenya Bell. John next touts Shaunie O’Neal as their team captain. If nostrils looks could kill, John would be a dead man.
He announces that Jennifer Williams is backstage, and Evelyn thinks it’s for the best. What in the world is up with her hair?? John asks Shaunie to address the violence on this season. Is it just me or does she look like a hot pink penguin? She hopes that all her cast mates use the show as a mirror, and she believes that each woman takes responsibility for their actions. Sure they do! Evelyn is always once to admit fault. Shaunie throws around the buzz word “balance” several times before reveling in applause. CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON FOR MORE!
Evelyn Lozada keeps managing to expand her brand, despite backlash from viewers of Basketball Wives. However, Evelyn doesn’t seem to care what people think of her. She tells VIBE (yes, she’s a guest editor this month), that if she’s learned anything from fiance Chad Ochocinco, it’s that controversy is a good thing. Of course it is! Highlights of her interview are below, but you can read the whole thing here.
How do you develop a tough skin for [naysayers]? You can’t do this and be sensitive. For example, you know Suzie [Ketcham], she gets a lot of sh*t from the show. After she films the show, she doesn’t watch it or go on Twitter. She’s like, ‘I don’t know how you deal with it.’ I’ve accepted that this is a part of my life and apart of my world now. The more the show became popular, and I started dating Chad, and I got engaged to Chad, it’s been like chaos.
I’m never going to hide and I’m always one of those people that say TV can be a gift and a curse, and at the same time it’s opened up a lot of doors for me that I never would have imagined. I can look at [the show] and say, Maybe I shouldn’t have handled it like that. Maybe I shouldn’t have thrown that bottle at Kenya [Bell], you know what I mean? If I’m blessed to be on TV for another five seasons, you won’t see Evelyn doing that. I’ve learned from that situation. Me and Tami [Roman] do get a lot of heat because we are straight forward and in your face and controversial. It’s not always positive, but I know we can look back and say, ‘You know what, b*tch, that wasn’t cool.’
