Oh my. This is good. I mean, when I say this is good, y'all, this. Is. Good. It speaks volumes to the characters of the women from the original Basketball Wives. VOLUMES! As you know, Shaunie "Nostrils" O'Neal, after a face-saving attempt to seek counseling from her pastor at the end of last season to end the show's violent ways, is bringing back her two explosive, bullying best friends Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman.
Evelyn and Tami want to use the fifth season for redemption after all of their heinous behavior in seasons past. Well, they are off to a great start, I tell you! The two ladies are hoping to revamp their images, and Shaunie and Suzie "Both Sides of her Mouth" Ketcham are also along for the ride. Guess how the four ladies are planning to show that they've changed for the better?? Why, they're planning a walk out if they don't get their salaries hiked! They truly have changed.
Can I get a slow clap for Shaunie O'Neal? She said she was going to clean up the violence and drama on Basketball Wives, and by God, she's going to deliver. Oh wait. Nevermind. Instead, Ms. Nostrils O'Neal fired the calm ladies and kept her violent, bullying friends for the fifth season. They say they want to redeem themselves. I think Kenya Bell needs to duck!
That's right, folks! Both wine bottle tossing, table jumping Evelyn Lozada and purse snatching, in-your-face screaming Tami Roman will be back for another round. Apparently, they've "grown" in light of recent circumstances and deserve a fifth second chance. Tami suffered a mild heart attack, so she has a new lease on life, while Evelyn had a short-lived marriage that ended in a head butt from Chad Johnson, so surely she's learned that violence isn't the answer. Right? Hello? Anyone believe that?
Okay, I think the majority of us can agree that most of the reality shows we love tuning into need to clean house as far as the cast mates. It's nice to think they may actually listen to the viewers when people tire of watching such toxic relationships (Real Housewives of New Jersey, anyone?). However, when the producers clean house in what appears to be an attempt to gain more drama, I'm not on board.
What do I mean? It seems that the folks at VH1 are getting rid of several ladies from Basketball Wives: LA while leaving the only two that despise each other in good standing with the show. I don't know how much Shaunie O'Neal has to do with Los Angeles franchise (if any of y'all know, please enlighten me), but given her penchant for drama and cattiness (you need not look any further than the original Basketball Wives to know I'm right), this has her name written all over it.
After fighting in court for seven years, Basketball Wives star Tami Roman and ex-husband Kenny Anderson have settled their child support lawsuit. Tami's child support woes were documented on Basketball Wives.
Tami filed the lawsuit in 2005, claiming Kenny stopped paying the court-ordered $8,500 a month child support he was supposed to pay for their two daughters. All together, the missed payments came to a whopping $800,000.
There’s no such thing as too many photo posts, in my ever so humble opinion! I love checking out what the stars are wearing, where they’re going, etc. Here we have another gallery from VH1’s 2012 Do Something Awards, held last night at Barker Hangar in Los Angeles.
The mess that has become the very brief – and I mean less than three months brief – marriage of Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada continues to implode. Chad has recently lost yet another endorsement deal, in addition to being fired from the Miami Dolphins and having their upcoming VH1 spinoff Ev & Ocho dropped.
It seems things continue to get worse for the reality TV lovin’ former NFL player. A friend is now speaking out and accusing Chad of abusing the Basketball Wives star all along!
“Chad has been abusive towards Evelyn basically from the beginning of their relationship,” a source close to the couple revealed to RadarOnline.
Aaaahhh…villains. Like in all things storytelling, no good tale works without a villain and a hero. And of course it's the villain who causes all the drama and gives the show its luster. Reality TV is the perfect place for a crazy, scheming, venomous nut job to crop up back stab, lie, and start trouble.
While the heroes get all the fans, the villains make the show. So here's to you, Reality TV villains. And without further ado, here is Reality Tea's list of Top 11 Reality TV Villains! There's just so many good ones.
Our favorite reality stars can’t get enough of the limelight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more details with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
