Finally, it’s the freakin’ finale of Basketball Wives. I don’t know about y’all, but this season has been incredibly exhausting, and the Tahiti trip has almost made me lose my cool!
We resume the same place we do almost every week, with Evelyn Lozada mouthing off after Jenn Williams escaped into her bungalow. Kenya Bell and Tami Roman are listening to her rants about how fake Jenn is, but I can’t take my attention off her hula hoop sized earrings. Shaunie O’Neal sneaks away to speak with Jenn, but I love that she’s more concerned about Jenn airing the group’s dirty laundry on blogs and twitter instead of Evelyn’s erratic and violent behavior. Why should everything be about appeasing crazy? And I’m not a Jenn fan…I think she should let it go, and I think she is extremely and purposefully pretentious, but geez, Shaunie! She isn’t doing anything worse than Evelyn is!
It’s Basketball Wives time yet again, and last night the ladies were still stirring up drama and screaming their way around the resort. I sincerely hope no one else is staying there on vacation!
Jenn WilliamsandKenya Bellhave arrived in Tahiti. I wonder if they passed Kesha Nichols in the airport. Jenn reminisces about her very similar honeymoon with Eric. On the sunset cruise, Tami Roman is already starting the damage control. She tells Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O’Neal she wants to talk to Kesha calmly, like an adult, and hopefully they can coexist. What a novel concept. The women are sidetracked when the boat passes Jenn’s bungalow where she is lounging on the balcony. Why is Tami drinking her beer through a straw? Tami decides to try to fix the rift between Jenn and Evelyn, but there are huge loyalty issues.
This season of Basketball Wives has got to be almost over, right? I mean, I don’t know how much more I can take of these women. Just a forewarning, this post is more emotional than I tend to be, just because I was beyond disgusted at what I was watching. I used to really enjoy watching these women. Where did things go wrong??
Tami Roman is still going off on Kesha Nichols. Kesha is staying cool, while Tami continues to remind Kesha that she told Royce Reed and Suzie Ketcham she wanted to go off on her. Kesha walks away and tries to remain calm, as Tami confiscates her pocketbook and refuses to relinquish it until Kesha returns to put her in her place. Do you kiss your kids with that mouth, Tami? Tami seems to be mad that Kesha doesn’t know where she comes from, but it’s time to put that excuse to rest. Tami apparently doesn’t seem to care that Kesha comes from a background where people don’t b!tch slap one another and hold handbags hostage. I want to smack (not really, as I’d be stooping to their level) Shaunie O’Neal,Evelyn Lozada, and Suzie for not intervening. When Kesha walks away, the other women think that Kesha should have spoken her mind. Shaunie even laughs that Tami is really going to keep her bag and sunglasses. Tami, you are a grown woman, and you should be ashamed of your behavior. Sixth grade bully.
On last night’s Basketball Wives, the women headed to Tahiti where all hell breaks lose and someone’s anger management backslides…big time. But first, a little daughter-daddy dramatics!
Royce, Royce, Royce. We resume with Royce Reed bawling to her father. She just wants to hear her father say he’s proud of her. Is that too much to ask? Can Royce please get a hug? Geez, her dad was just trying to give her some fatherly advice on how not to look like she jumps from man to man for attention. Yet here she is, begging her father for attention. Daddy issues, perhaps?
Rumors abound have stated the producers are not happy with Jenn’s decision and even going so far as to accuse her of filing suit for publicity or to secure a spot on next season’s cast. Well now TMZ is reporting that producers are so furious they may just file a suit against Jenn in return. Isn’t this blackmail of sorts?
Their reason? Jenn is violating her contract by bashing the show publicly! According to sources, Jenn’s contract forbids her from doing media appearances or press without the network’s approval. And the Basketball Wives contract stipulates cast members must not speak negatively about the show. Due to Jenn’s media tirade against the race track incident, the big-wigs feel Jenn’s behavior is “ruining the brand.” Uh… seriously? Really? Wow…

Oh Basketball Wives! An episode with no fighting? What’s a girl to do? Don’t get me wrong…I relished in it, but I am just so…so…so confused!
Tami Roman, Nia Crooks, and Evelyn Lozada meet up for cocktails, and Evelyn is appalled that Jenn Williams is giving interviews about the smack situation. Jenn is dead to Nia, and Tami agrees. Of course, in Tami’s interview she says that what happened at the race track was between Jenn, Nia, and Evelyn…she will continue to maybe kind of be passive aggressive pals with Jenn. Evelyn is beside herself. She realizes that she’s an adult with an eighteen-year-old daughter, and while she should probably be more mature, she wants Jenn’s blood. It’s a totally normal and mature reaction, right? Evelyn wants Tami to uninvite Jenn from the Tahiti trip, but Tami is unwilling. Jenn’s been invited, and Evelyn needs to get over it. Wow, Tami. I am slightly impressed. Evelyn makes sure that Tami knows that she’s in charge of Evelyn not getting arrested in Tahiti.
Star Jones may be controversial, she may be loud, and she may be annoying (sometimes, at least), but she’s intelligent…you have to give her that! After watching the season of Basketball Wives thus far, the celebrity lawyer had some choice tweets for the show, and she was met with a great deal of opposition from her fans. Seriously? Again, who thinks acting like a fool and smacking someone is a-okay? Did I miss that class in high school…because that is how old the BBW “ladies” act.
Uh oh – it seems karma is a bigger bitch than Evelyn finally catching up to Evelyn Lozada! In response to her dramatic and violent behavior in this season of Basketball Wives, some people are planning to boycott Evelyn and fiancé Chad Ochocinco‘s new show! Why? Because they don’t think Evelyn’s bullying and mean girl behavior should be rewarded with a spin-off!
A fan of Basketball Wives has started a petition requesting viewers abstain from watching the wedding show, titled Ev & Ocho, in response to Evelyn’s appalling behavior. “Evelyn Lozada is a bully. The violence on ‘Basketball Wives’ is horrible and disgraceful,” the petition states.”This is not a hate petition against Eveyln Lozada. We simply will not support violence. It hurts to see violence amongst women on television for entertainment purposes. It is not ok for women to hit each other on TV.” Wowzers!
Moving on, it seems Jennifer Williams is continuing to alienate her reality show because of the lawsuit she filed against Evelyn’s assistant Nia Crooks. According to TMZ, the producers are livid that Jenn went through with the suit. The producers are allegedly claiming that Jenn never cared about violence before, and this is just a publicity stunt to ensure her position in season five.
But it’s backfiring big time! A source says, “Filing broad lawsuits when you are as much to blame for the drama, is not the way to get your contract extended.”
THOUGHTS ON THE PETITION? WILL YOU WATCH EVELYN’S NEW SHOW? IS JENN’S LAWSUIT A PUBLICITY STUNT OR VALID?
