Last night’s Basketball Wives finally gave us some new venues for the ladies one-on-one and two-on-one chats. There is farm scenery and four-wheeling. Cocktails are enjoyed on a balcony, walks are taken on the beach, and I think I even saw some roller blades. Sure there were the regular bar and restaurant chats, but gracious, if they are going to stick to this format, I am thankful they mixed it up just a little.
The women are back in Miami, and mean girls Evelyn and Tami meet with their leader Shaunie to brag about their Kesha bashing dinner. Evelyn touts her $h!t sniffing abilities when it comes to getting the dirt on people. At least the first part sounds about right. Shaunie is having a birthday dinner and wants all the ladies in attendance. She admits to Evelyn that Jen will also be at the celebration. Evelyn knows she’s going to be uber-uncomfortable, but she’s willing to be in that situation for her friend…just don’t let her have more than two drinks. Tami asks to be seated across the table from Jen and Evelyn so she can watch all the drama unfold from the front row.

One thing is for certain - in between episodes of VH1′s Basketball Wives, we’re sure to hear about the ladies. They don’t want to be forgotten during the week! Even the new girls are quickly learning that.
On the last episode KENYA BELL called you a “hater” when you stepped back from her project. How did you feel about that?
That’s one of those situations where there was a lot more back-story. When I said, ‘If it’s not gonna be perfect, I don’t want to be a part of it,’it seemed like I was being really short with her but that was not what was meant. Kenya was just very inexperienced. She’d never shot a video, never hired dancers, never had a story board. There were so many things she didn’t know and I was trying to enlighten her and consult her and she just didn’t want to hear it. Because she didn’t have a budget and because everything was kind of thrown together I felt that it was best for me to remove myself from it so that we could still remain friends. I made a professional move and I think she was offended by it. She then threw that jab at me during her dance auditions.
The issue on your race, and where you’re from, has been brought up time after time. Can you tell us about your struggles being multiracial?
It’s never easy growing up, being half of one thing and half of something else especially when they’re complete opposites. I grew up in the South and when I was born it was never cool for interracial couples to be out and about, and it was looked down upon by the white community. My father and his side of the family weren’t in my life at all, so I was a little mixed kid growing up around all white people. My family loved me and never made feel any different but in school and other places I never felt white enough. As an adult, I’m around black women that I want to relate to and now I’m not black enough. It’s like I can’t win for losing. My question of “blackness” was brought up on a previous episode by Tami. She said that I “didn’t look like a Kesha.” Whether my name is Kesha, Shaquana, or Becky—it doesn’t matter. I identify myself as black. I feel if I want to relate to you as a black woman, why would you ever want to push me away?
Just from viewing the few episodes that have aired, do you wish you’d done or said anything differently?
I didn’t want what happened between Kenya and I to be so drawn out. I didn’t want to keep arguing with her because it wasn’t worth it. The first dinner we had with Tami and Evelyn [Lozada], when we were meeting Shaunie [O'Neal], wasn’t the place to be hashing things out. And of course when you’re talking about something and you have three other opinions, things escalate and become a little bigger than what they really are. It didn’t really need to go there but that’s what the show is—all of us as a group talking about stuff. More than anything, I’m just not used to the cattiness and people being so vocal about their judgment of others.
Last week, both TAMI and KENYA tweeted that a scene about you exchanging numbers with KENYA’s husband was edited out. What was this all about?
That was such a non-issue that it wasn’t even covered on the show. The show is all about drama. If there was something really there, don’t you think they would’ve jumped on that and made it a full storyline? They’re not trying to protect me anyway, I’m the new girl. I saw Kenya’s husband out in New York and it had been two years since I had seen either one of them. I was under the impression that they were still together and didn’t know that they weren’t. We had all exchanged information when were friends way back. When we started filming the show, I think he found out that Kenya was doing it and he texted me. He sent me a text that said “Hey.” I didn’t respond to it and I immediately told Kenya—end of story. It was nothing. That’s why we didn’t see it on the show.
Hmm…she actually sounds relatively normal, which makes me wonder if she will last. Moving on to Kesha’s biffle Royce Reed, TMZ is reporting that her custody battle with basketballer Dwight Howard continues to rage on in court. Dwight is fighting for primary custody of his son with Royce, after filing documents with the court, claiming his former girlfriend tries to prevent him from seeing their son on his scheduled days. He further alleges, Royce hinders his ability to have a relationship with his son.
Royce isn’t taking any of this lightly, and she had her attorney file a motion this week to have Judge Tim Shea recuse himself from the case. In the filings, Royce claims that the judge is partial to Dwight and has a thing against baby-mamas. The documents go on to state that Judge Shea did not allow Royce to present her side of the case at a recent hearing.
In addition to the motion, Royce’s attorney filed an affidavit stating the judge told the parties during the hearing that he was going to award primary custody to Howard even though neither side had yet to present evidence. He later decided to delay his decision. Royce’s lawyer also cites a potential conflict of interest as the judge’s website lists one of Dwight’s lawyers as endorsing Shea. That can’t be good!
Many have wondered why Royce’s son hasn’t been featured on the show. Dwight had Royce sign an agreement which prohibits her from having their son on the series or even talking about him on the show.
Finally, Jennifer Williams just continues to build her brand away from the show. TheYBF.com has pictures of Jen’s recent photo shoot for the April/May issue of Today’s Black Woman Style Report. Those shots are below. You have to admit that divorce really seems to suit her. A new episode of BBW airs tonight at 8PM ET on VH1.
COMMENTS ON KESHA’S INTERVIEW? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF ROYCE’S CUSTODY BATTLE? THOUGHTS ON JEN’S NEW PICTURES?

This week has been a battle of the VH1 blogs between two (former?) friends of Basketball Wives, and it’s not pretty.
Royce Reeddiscusses Monday’s episode, and she has some choice words for her friend Tami Roman…and you’d better believe Tami has somethings to say to Royce as well!
Royce begins, “[F]rom the looks of it Tami had no intentions of ‘listening’ to what Kesha [Nichols] had to say because in Tami Law, she should’ve come to her first. I love you, Tami, but once again I can’t condone your actions. What you did at that dinner was not ‘keeping it real’ it was ‘keeping it rude and disrespectful.’” I found myself ducking when I typed that, terrified Tami was going to throw something at me from all the way in Miami for just repeating Royce’s words!
“There is a way to speak to people, and calling them out their name repeatedly when they are attempting to be respectful to you was not it. It’s sad to say that last night’s episode came across as bullying. That’s NOT the Tami I have gotten to know away from ‘this situation.’ The Tami I know is genuinely funny, kind, professional and respectful. I can call her at any time for real advice and she’s never reluctant to give it. The Tami I saw last night was not the Tami I’ve grown to love as a friend and would be in my wedding. Hopefully more anger management will help because there has to be more to this story.” Hopefully the compliments Royce bestows upon the “off-screen” Tami will keep her from becoming Tami’s next punching bag.
Finally, Royce addresses viewers who believe she doesn’t have Tami’s back. “A few have questioned my friendship with Tami due to me ‘calling her out’ in my blogs. That’s disturbing due to the fact she does the same to me,” Royce states. “I blog for vh1.com, I can’t be biased. I can’t ride or die for ‘wrong.’ Tami and I do not have a co-signing friendship. We are real friends and will call each other out be it right, wrong, bitch, bougie, etc. I will never sugarcoat anything and neither will she. Do we argue? Hell yes. Do we get over it? Of course! She knows if she needs me I’m there…” Hmmm, you may be there for her Royce, but will Tami even care?
Um, it doesn’t sound like it. Not one to typically blog about the show, Tami felt the need to clear the air (and explain her atrocious behavior) this week.
Of Royce, Tami writes, “I thought that we were real friends, but I personally feel that your position on this is stepping over bounds. As a friend, I would expect you to have a neutral position and not try to defend a grown woman who doesn’t deserve it. You can be friends with both of us without voicing your opinion on the matter because truthfully you weren’t there to witness ANY of it firsthand.”
“You are watching the edited version and basing your so-called ‘non bias’ opinion on that OR you are taking Keisha’s version of what happened and coming at me sideways,” Tami explains, continuing, “There have been PLENTY of times when I haven’t agreed with things you have done or said and I addressed those things with you in private out of respect for you. I don’t bring my concerns to anyone but you and I definitely don’t discuss how I may feel about certain situations with the other girls. As far as they know, I have always had your back even when you were wrong.”
She concludes, “Additionally, there have also been plenty of times when people have voiced their opinion of you around me. First thing I say, as your friend is, ‘Royce is my friend and I don’t want to get involved.’ I would have appreciated you taking the same position. I choose not to get involved with things that don’t pertain to me out of loyalty to the people I call friends. I feel saddened that you couldn’t reciprocate. We view ‘real’ friendship differently and thus we may not be real friends…”
Two things…I love that Tami doesn’t even take the time to spell Kesha’s name correctly, and I find it hilarious when these ladies blame editing. However, Tami does blame a lot of her issues with Kesha based on things the viewers didn’t see. Addressing her new nemesis, Tami says, “To be clear, upon meeting you, I asked you respectfully to discuss anything you had to say about me…WITH ME. I wasn’t confrontational nor was I argumentative. Of course that part was edited out of the show; however you, Royce and Kenya [Bell] know what I said.”
Furthermore, Tami continues, “I don’t walk around with boxing gloves on and I don’t fight everyone I meet. I just feel you should’ve been a real woman and brought your concerns “directly” to me. I can assure you that if you had our dealings with each other might not be so rocky.” Good to know about the boxing gloves. Good. To. Know. Tami also claims that Kesha’s constant crying about “not being black enough” is a lie, and had we seen scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor, we’d know that.
She asserts, “Do me a favor, don’t be such a liar and manipulator. I know you have friends in high “Executive Producer” places, but let’s keep this all the way real. When I met you, I approached you in a friendly manner and I did not have any issues with you what so ever. Everyone in this situation knows I was told you were Caucasian, so when I met you that is why I asked you. In that same conversation (which was edited out), upon hearing your answer, I said that I thought you were mixed but wasn’t sure of what it was…my saying that I thought you were mixed with something was in fact ACKNOWLEDGING that you may be of African American decent. I am a product of mixed heritage and identify myself as a black woman also. I NEVER said you weren’t ‘black’ enough… that is a flat out lie!”
And there you have it, or don’t have it…according to editing. What about that “Executive Producer” dig? Ms. Shaunie can’t be too pleased with that one!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE BLOGS? IS ROYCE IN THE WRONG? THOUGHTS ON TAMI’S EDITING COMMENTS?
Last night’s Basketball Wives was all over the place – charity events, fake dinners, launch parties, and Central Park. Even better? The veterans can’t decide which newbie to hate on, so they just go back and forth between confronting Kenya and Kesha. Always in the middle? Suzie, of course!
Oh Jen, glad to see you again! Yeah, I’m just being polite. Suzie heads to Jen’s new NYC digs because she is bursting at the seams at to talk more shiz about Kenya. She shares the video shoot debacle when Kenya and her posse didn’t realize what all went into renting out the club. Give me a break, Suzie. She sounds like a twelve-year-old.
Kesha and Evelyn meet for dinner because Evelyn thinks Kesha is pretty cool. Kesha is hosting a charity event and she doesn’t want the same kind of behavior that Suzie brought to Royce’s event. Evelyn would love to support her event, but she doesn’t want drama if Jen is also invited. Kesha would like everyone to attend, but if she has to choose between Evelyn and Jennifer, Evelyn will get the invitation. However, Kesha is quick to remind Evelyn that she has no problem with Jen. She does relay her issues with Tami, and Evelyn believes those can easily be resolved if Kesha shoot straight with Tami.

The Basketball Wives (are any of them still wives?) are quick to defend the most recent episode. The women, who have been on the show since its inception, still seem to take great pleasure in passive aggressively taking down the new blood. Case in point? Kenya.
Oh, Kenya Bell. Kenya, Kenya, Kenya. She’s had a tough time as a newbie integrating with her fellow cast mates. If they aren’t blatantly mocking her YouTube videos, they are bashing on the disorganized way in which she approaches her budding music career, or talking smack about her weave. Can’t a girl catch a break?
The YBF.com breaks down a recent radio interview Kenya gave to Detroit’s FM 98′s morning show featuring COCO, Foolish, & Mr. Chase. Kenya dishes on this week’s episode. She explains why she was unprepared for her meeting with Tami Roman’s “team” and how she felt to see the other women talking so much crap about her.
In the interview, Kenya, who is from Detroit, begins by stating she is “mad as hell with these hot-ass-mess-chicks. These heffas is hating! We film and you don’t know what people are saying behind your back. So it’s like ‘wow… really?’ It’s crazy!” Wowzers.
Viewers will remember that fateful meeting between Kenya and Tami’s “people” where she showed up late, with no promotional photos and a portable CD player I would have given my right arm for back in 1998. Kenya is adamant that the meeting wasn’t totally as it seemed. She explains, “That was not like a music managing group. Tami’s team is a design team. All they do is basically style and pictures.” Continuing, Kenya says, “They really don’t do anything with music they just wanted to hear my song… they weren’t a music group or anything like that. They basically just do photos and styling for an album cover, etc…”
Kenya also wants to set the record straight about the coat she was wearing that Tami called a “peasant coat.” She says the coat actually cost her roughly $3,000.00 and bears the Save the Queen label. So there!
While it appeared that Kenya was being ganged up on for those ridiculous–but I’ll give her stupid brave–online videos, they have at the very least garnered her lots of attention. She tells the radio crew about her twitter trending, “Third week in a row! So I was just like, ‘Yall hate is making me great!’”
Of course, like all reality stars, especially the new girls who know their time could be fleeting, Kenya is vague about her returning for a second season of the show. She admits, “I don’t know… we’ll see how it all ends up. I’m just the new girl and there’s new girls every year. They just go in on the new girl.” However, Kenya isn’t concerned about how others may perceive her. She states, “My pageant history has given me the confidence where I can hear people talk mess and say whatever and I can still see myself how I see myself as a beautiful talented smart person who is goal orientated and driven.”
And “talk mess” they will. Evelyn Lozada devotes some of her precious personal blog time to the season’s newcomer. I have to admit that ol’ Evelyn didn’t come down on her nearly as hard as I would have expected.
She writes, “[O]n to KENYA! What in the world is going on in that girl’s head (no pun intended)? That weave-wig has to go…like now! Seriously, before she continues to pursue her singing career (and to her credit, she can sing) yet she needs to set up an appointment with @tamiroman’s glam squad, quick like and in a hurry.” Evelyn also feels the need to put in her two cents on the discord between Kenya and fellow new girl Kesha Nichols.
Evelyn observes, “The beef between her and Kesha is a mess. I don’t really know what to say. I think Kenya could have come at Kesha a little better especially since Kesha is the thorough and professional type. I know we are filming and we approach things when we meet up however Kenya should’ve had that conversation with Kesha in private. There was no need to throw a jab like that in front of all those people. I’m all about keeping it 100 but that was a bit much.” That’s a fair opinion, don’t you think? Evelyn is, after all, notorious for fighting her battles off camera and keeping it klassy on the show, right? Right? RIGHT? Oh, gracious.
In other Basketball Wives news, Tami is hating on Kesha. On an upcoming episode, Tami and Kesha have a brawl. Did it have anything to do with Kesha trying to move in on Kenya’s husband? Tami recently tweeted about the most recent episode, “OK so they just cut the part out where Keisha [sic] exchanged numbers with @kenyabell’s husband & tried 2keep it on the low #shady.” If that’s true, Evelyn won’t be the only one bringing dramz this season!
WHAT DID YOU THINK OF KENYA’S INTERVIEW? HAS SHE RECEIVED AN UNFAIR EDIT? DO THE OTHER LADIES KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT THE NEWBIES TO JUDGE THEM? WHO WOULD YOU BET ON IN A FIGHT, KENYA OR KESHA?
Last night’s Basketball Wives was, per the usual, a hot mess of hating on the new girls, horrific dancing, and bad behavior at a charity event. Hmmm, was it a rerun?
The episode begins in Miami, with Evelyn coming over to Tami’s house to visit. Evelyn is so over the infidelity rumors, and Tami totally understands the lifestyle of an athlete, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s cheating on her. She advises her friend to ignore all the press. Evelyn has tried to tell Chad that the rumors don’t just affect their relationship, they affect their children. Tami is convinced the pair will be happily married in no time.
Evelyn takes the red-eye to New York to meet the new girls with Suzie. Evelyn is keen on Kesha’s style, but she is questioning Kenya’s weave. Kesha can’t get over Suzie’s constant penis references. For Suzie, Evelyn brings up Kenya’s Youtube videos. Evelyn is impressed that Kenya is open to taking down the videos, after hearing that they aren’t sexy or good. Evelyn feels a tad (just a tad) badly about bringing the videos’ suckiness to Kenya’s attention.

The ladies of Basketball Wives simply cannot go anywhere without their drama. You might even say they carry it along with them in their purses. Apparently, during a cast trip to Tahiti last month (why are reality show casts always on trips, like they can’t create enough trouble at home?) Tami Roman and newbie Kesha Nichols got into quite the altercation!
We all know Tami does not mince words and mid-way through the trip she apparently called Kesha out on talking behind the girls’ backs. According to TMZ, the two got into an argument and Kesha fearing for her life stormed out! Unfortunately, she left her designer bag behind! Tami decided to hold onto the bag in the hopes that when Kesha came back to retrieve it, they could continue their friendly little chat!
Sadly for Tami, things didn’t go as planned. When Kesha learned Tami had the bag in her room, she realized it was not safe for her to go in there alone and got hotel security involved! Hotel security (presumably also afraid) wanted to call the police over the “theft.” I’m thinking Meeka Claxton gave these people a call and told them what happened in Italy last year!
Producers intervened and convinced Tami to return the bag and Kesha reportedly hopped on the next plane back to the US!
Moving on, Evelyn Lozada still expects us to believe this wedding to Chad Ochocinco is happening. Evelyn insists she’s not a Bridezilla–yet–she just wants everything to be perfect! “It’s Florida in Palm Beach in July and I’m currently busy planning. I don’t have my dress but I have a potential designer,” she dishes.
They are planning to invite about 250 guests and the list has been a “challenge” for Evelyn. “I initially wanted something smaller, but Chad is a big personality and if I leave it up to him he will have animals running around.”
Included in the list, are her castmates, except for one person. Of course, Evelyn can’t get through an interview without mentioning her former bestie Jennifer Williams!
“Jennifer is definitely not invited, it really wouldn’t make sense as she really wasn’t supportive of my relationship from day one,” Evelyn shared with RadarOnline. “I want people who are really, truly happy for us. She never really cared.”
While rekindling things with Jen is not a possibility, starring in an Evelyn and Ocho reality show is! Ugh. “If it works out for the both of us we would do it on TV, there is some interest but nothing is set in stone yet,” Evelyn explained. “The Patriots would let him do that because he wouldn’t be playing then as it would be out of season, coach Bill Belichick is very strict during the season but he wouldn’t be opposed because it’s the off-season.”
“We would probably do a few episodes running up to the wedding and air it outside of Basketball Wives.” Anything for fame these two!
And speaking of The Patriots, Evelyn confesses that Chad took his Superbowl loss pretty hard and the family spent the evening consoling him! “The kids were so torn, it was hard. They wanted to see their dad win so badly,” Evelyn reveals. “After that we literally went to the team hotel and went to the MacDonald’s drive thru and we all sat in the car and spent time with him, and that was our night.” That’s actually pretty sweet.
Finally, Evelyn has been kicking it old school and posting photos of herself back in the day on her website. “It’s Throwback Thursday and I wanted to share a picture of me and my Princess Shaniece. She makes my heart melt! #LoveBeingAMommy,” Evelyn wrote. Also getting into the spirit was Evelyn’s daughter Shaniece, who put some photos of her parents at the hospital when she was born. Very sweet. “Mommy & Daddy #1993,” she captioned the photo. You can see the photos below!
THOUGHTS ON TAMI’S PURSE SNATCH? CRAZY OR NOT SO BAD? DO YOU BELIEVE THE EVELYN AND OCHO WEDDING WILL HAPPEN? WOULD YOU WATCH THEIR REALITY SHOW?

The ladies of the Real Housewives of Atlanta return tonight, after taking Sunday off, last week. Of course, even after taking a short break, there is no break in the women discussing the recent drama on that never-ending trip to the Dark Continent.
Marlo tells the site, “I don’t think of her as a friend either. The only reason we communicate is because of NeNe [Leakes]. We don’t have anything in common except we’re both tall and pretty.” And they both have some healthy self-esteem, I’ll bet. Marlo, who describes the pair as “cordial,” admits she was disappointed that Cynthia joined the smalls in gossip, while the castmates were vacationing in South Africa.
“It did shock me that she was talking to them about me,” Marlo reveals. “When we were in Africa together, we did get along. We did talk.”
As viewers recall, Cynthia changed her tune about Marlo when the Neenster joined the group for lunch. Marlo continues, “When NeNe came back around, it was, ‘Oh, I love Marlo.’ She’s a little two-faced here.”
Marlo also discusses her role on the show, saying she knew from the start she wouldn’t be joining the cast as a main housewife. Marlo isn’t even married…although, let’s be honest, being an actual housewife has never been a prerequisite to starring in the franchise. Marlo says, “I knew I wasn’t going to be a housewife..I knew what my position was in the beginning.”
However, rumors are swirling that Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak will be getting her own Bethenny Frankel-style Bravo spin-off, leaving a vacancy in the cast. Marlo isn’t automatically assuming that she will fill that void, stating, “I gotta wait and see what God has planned.”
Also getting her own show is Kandi Burruss, whose show The Kandi Factory airs tonight at 10PM ET on Bravo. In an interview with DetroitNews.com, Kandi discusses her Bravo spinoff and her anger over Sheree’s two-faced actions in Africa!
First, Kandi explains why she decided to take a leap with her own show. “I don’t want people to get confused,” Kandi states. “I’m not a reality star, I’m a business and entertainment mogul who happens to be on a reality show. ‘The Kandi Factory’ will allow me to show peole what I really do. I love helping people and I love making hits.”
And when it comes to her drama with Sheree, Kandi reveals: “I was irritated when I watched the whole thing again.” She, however, adds that she and Sheree are still friends. “I’m not the kind of person who holds grudges,” Kandi says. “I was mad at Sheree for what she did but that’s not enough reason to cut her off and not be her friend.”
Moving on to Kim Zolciak, as things continue to go well for her and her new husband, Atlanta Falcon’s defensive end Kroy Biermann. The Atlanta Journal Constitution’s online edition is reporting that the NFL player will likely sign a lucrative contract extension. Yesterday, an insider close to the negotiations stated that the re-signing was “imminent” and would likely happen within the next thirty-six hours.
Kroy was a fifth-round draft pick in 2008, and the source claims he wants to negotiate a three-year contract. The Falcons, however, would like to lock in his contract for up to four years. The good news for Kim Kroy, is that the deal will be worth between $10-12 million. That’s a lot of wigs!
Meanwhile, NeNe and Cynthia hosted a party in North Carolina this weekend, along with rapper TI. Baksetball Wives star Tami Roman was also in attendance. Photos from that event are below!
On tonight’s episode, the women pack up to head back to Atlanta. Well, all except for Marlo, who lounges, while her poor South African housekeeper painstakingly follows her every command regarding shoebags, carry-ons, and designer name dropping. Kandi and Cynthia discuss tension with Sheree. Phaedra, Sheree, and Cynthia take away life lessons from the vacation, while NeNe believes they will be returning to Atlanta as two separate groups yet again, the talls and the smalls.
Back in the states, Kim is worn out taking care of her two daughters and a newborn. While she has two housekeepers, she is in desperate need of a nanny. Kim gets mad beyond words when she finds Sweetie and Brielle lounging by the pool. Who does Sweetie think she is? She doesn’t need a tan! Kim shouldn’t be charged with going through all of these resumes herself! Additionally, on the NeNe front, Bryson gets arrested, again. Shocking, I know. A new episode airs tonight at 9PM ET. Watch a preview clip below!
