It seems while VH1 was airing the reunion show of Basketball Wives, the real drama was taking place in Twitterville.
Matt Barnes, fiance of cast member Gloria Govan, didn’t appreciate what the ladies had to say about he and his fiance, mostly when they all declared they didn’t know who he was before the show. The led to Matt unleashing a verbal smackdown on the ladies.
“@FirstLadyEve& @RedCarpet_17 yall hoes enjoy ur 5mins of fame & when it runs out make sure u find another athlete/celeb 2 SUCK dry. TRICKS!!!

The ladies however did not take Matt’s twitter abuse laying down. Here’s what they also tweeted to Matt –

This isn’t the first time Matt has unleashed on the ladies via twitter. Gloria, who did not attend the reunion, gave a new interview to VH1 and had some interesting things to say regarding Shaunie and Matt’s twitter attacks. Excerpts are below -
What do you think of the stuff Matt said to the women on the show via Twitter?
I think he has gone back and forth with them. I don’t have a Twitter account that I have used in a long time. I don’t follow them, they don’t follow me so it would’ve been pointless to get involved. Mainly, I told Matt don’t waste his time. They’re just unnecessary. They’re not a factor in our lives, to entertain ignorance belittles you and brings you down to their level. Part of me was proud of him, though. I was kind of excited. I was glad that he stood up to them. He protected me in a sense. I was excited for that, but I also told him it was probably a waste of time.
Are ties completely severed with Shaunie?
I think so. I don’t think I have aimed any of my comments at Shaunie in a negative light. From what I’ve heard, she had tried to say things about me or about Matt or about our relationship in general that just aren’t nice. I just think it’s also very immature. For someone to be grown with five kids, I feel like she should have better things to do with her time.
TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE DRAMA BETWEEN MATT AND THE LADIES?
