Something tells me Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada are going to be milking this ‘our friendship is over’ feud for all it’s worth. In round infinity of the drama that these two ladies refuse to handle in private, the Basketball Wives stars are taking to their VH1 blogs to slam each other once again.

To start us off, Jennifer quotes the legendary Whitney Houston: “I finally faced the fact that it isn’t a crime not having friends. Being alone means you have fewer problems.” And that is exactly how she feels after dealing with Evelyn’s nonsense!

Just to recap Evelyn got mad at Jenn over a blog her publicist wrote which said Evelyn should speak to her directly if they have issues (because writing a blog is just like picking up the phone, Jenn?) and confronting the accusations that Jenn is jealous of Evelyn’s fauxlationship engagement with Chad Ochocinco Johnson. Apparently, those little comments were the catalyst for all the drama we’ve been hearing about since this summer!

Jennifer claims she didn’t have time to write her own blog–or check her publicist’s work–because she was on vacation in Italy. Aaaahhh… lifestyles of the credit card indebted and D-List famous! “I honestly didn’t think she wrote anything awful or harmful,” she explains. “It stated my opinion and I feel I‘m allowed to have one. Take a look for yourself. Was this statement really worth all the drama?”

“What I really have a hard time understanding is that this blog came out July 19th, 2011 and the first time I heard about Evelyn being mad was in November 2011,” Jenn seethes in her VH1 missive. “When we filmed the reunion in July the blog was out and she didn’t mention it then. It is just absurd to me that we are fighting over something so simple in my eyes but I guess not in hers. So be it!”

Fast forward to this week’s season premiere, which featured a whole lotta she-said/she-said drama between the two, and culminated with some enemy lines being drawn! “Tonight the world witnessed for themselves the type of evil I am dealing with,” Jenn said of the season premiere episode. “These words pretty much sum up the state of affairs,” Jenn asserts and reminds us of what Evelyn said to her: “You’re not my friend, you’re my enemy.”

“It was at this very moment that I realized there would be no resolution. No matter what I would do, Evelyn already had it in her mind that I was her enemy. And there you have it…,” she concludes. She maintains that she never thought their friendship would totally end,  and even if they did not remain friends, she had no interest in being enemies.

And now it’s Evelyn’s turn! Evelyn starts out by titling her blog: “Take Your Crocodile Tears And Go Talk To Your Publicist,” so we know right from the get-go she’s not taking any of this lying down.

First she reminds us that her fight with Royce Reed was purely and totally in response to her loyalty to Jenn and had nothing to do with her own desire to get some attention and air time.

Then she launches into the trouble with Jenn. “Jenn knew what I was upset about and has known for a while. The actual discussion during the last scene of the show was actually longer, but due to editing was shortened,” Evelyn reveals.

And Evelyn is exonerating herself from evil, just like Jenn is. “Prior to the radio interview, blogs or any interviews that Jenn has done I never betrayed or had a conversation about her relationship with Eric. I am usually the first person the media will approach for a comment on Jen’s relationship because at the time, I was the closest to her.”

“Have you EVER known me to comment on her relationship or personal life via any media outlet?,” Evelyn asks. “Of course not because I am LOYAL.”

Evelyn maintains that her issues with Jenn stem mainly from her former friend’s dismissive attitude towards her engagement, which Evelyn feels is a reflection of Jen’s jealousy over her happiness. “Her comment tonight, “I can F*** whoever I want to F***, I’m not marrying no damn athlete!” was again, very hurtful. Basically she is still dissing my relationship and my fiancé,” Evelyn says. “What type of so-called friend would have the audacity to do that?”

“And why would she contradict herself?,” Evelyn wants to know.”Didn’t you just say on the show ‘I can f*** whoever I want to F***, I’m not marrying no damn athlete!’ I don’t get it!”

Then taking it to the next level–the always classy one–Evelyn accuses Jenn of hooking up with athletes in secret! “Whether you are having sex with, marrying, dating or not you are still sleeping with athletes and my man happens to be an athlete! DUH! That would be the same type of person!” Oh, these ladies!

“And what is so crazy is that Jenn was OUT having ‘relations’ with athletes and trying to play the innocent role on the show. Last season Jen was dating, however, she acted as though she wasn’t to viewers. At least, I give our viewers ALL of me; I don’t lie to any of you guys regarding my personal life, friendships, etc,” Evelyn fumes.

I personally think at least Jenn is keeping it somewhat classy and reserving the mudslinging for some less personal attacks. I am dead sure she has some serious dirt on Evelyn’s antics that she could start throwing to the media. And if Jenn wants to hook up with athletes as a single woman and not tell the public, who cares? So long as it’s not Evelyn’s fiancé, she shouldn’t worry about it!

Evelyn insists her anger is directly related to Jenn’s comments about Chad. “We have been friends for twelve years and at the end of the day, talking smack about my fiancé is OFF LIMITS,” Evelyn advises. “The comments that Jen carelessly made about my relationship is an issue and she was not being a real friend.”

“Once Chad proposed, do you realize that Jen NEVER congratulated me…she didn’t say anything positive, never took time out to meet Chad…nothing,” Evelyn adds. “All of the crocodile tears is for show, it’s fake…she did this to herself. Jenn showed me her true colors and I am done with her.” Evelyn is also disappointed Jenn didn’t throw her a bridal shower.

Evelyn concludes by saying she is very hurt by Jenn’s attitude. “I thought she was a true friend, I was loyal and I seriously thought she would have been happy for me. We were friends for twelve years and regardless she has judged Chad and me. Meanwhile, she is doing the same thing.”

Well, that’s that! I’m thinking these two are done. The fat lady has sung and the tears have been cried, sadly we’re still going to have to hear about the drama for the next few moths! I’m going to console myself by placing bets on who flings a drink first – Jenn or Evelyn?

WHO DO YOU BLAME FOR THE FRIENDSHIP ENDING: JENN, EVELYN, OR BASKETBALL WIVES FAME? ARE YOU TIRED OF THIS TOPIC ALREADY? WHO DO YOU THINK WILL THROW A DRINK FIRST: EVELYN OR JENN?



Oh, the cray-cray ladies of the original Basketball Wives are finally back for a fourth season with two new additions. How we’ve missed you!

The episode begins with Evelyn Lozada meeting with her wedding planner. Evelyn admits that she had hoped for a destination wedding, but seeing as not everyone has passports, the event will need to remain local. She also reveals that she doesn’t want any bridesmaids. She cryptically references the fact that many of her friends haven’t been extremely loyal, and she only wants people she loves and trusts in attendance. Hmmm…to whom could she be referring?

Jennifer Williams is in NYC and has an unlikely meeting with Suzie Ketcham. Suzie inquires as to whether Jenn has spoken to ex-husband Eric since drink toss 2011. It appears that Suzie has relocated. Is this Basketball Wives: Miami or Basketball Wives: New York? Wait, I think it is. My bad. #duh. Jenn learns that Suzie rarely talks to former biffle, Royce Reed. Suzie is equally shocked to find out that Evelyn and Jenn are on the outs.

Last night’s Mob Wives had the mobsters coming clean to their lady loves about their prior bad behavior. It was quite the confessional!

The episode begins with Drita D’avanzo heading back into the boxing ring. Her trainer is upset to hear that she’s been fighting again. Drita believes she could curb her street fighting if she was able to rid douchebags in her life. Her memory of beating up d-bags extends all the way back to kindergarten. Her temper is in no way to blame for her penchant for hitting other people. Okay.

Karen Gravano and Ramona Rizzo meet for dinner. As much as they are willing to invite Carla Facciolo into their inner circle, they blame Drita for brainwashing her. The two respect the fact that Carla is loyal to a fault, even if it’s to Drita. Karen and Ramona plan to change that. Ramona chalks it up to the double-D factor…no Drita, no drama. After all my time watching this fiasco, I can honestly say that Drita may not be the only cast member who stirs the pot.

Oh Basketball Wives, you’re coming back to us! Tonight marks the season four premiere of the Evelyn Lozada vs. Jennifer Williams, Great Friendship Fall-Apart aka season four!

To kick things off right, the ladies are out and about letting everyone know this is definitely a season you don’t want to miss; oh, and all the drama – so not their fault! Discussing this season, Evelyn is once again explaining how things work from her perspective – and interestingly she blames, of all things, Twitter for a lot of the fighting!

Evelyn believes if people just kept their every passing comment to themselves, less people would get hurt. I’m just gonna let this one sink in, being that Evelyn has been called out for her Twitterants on more than one occasion.

“Twitter plays a huge part on ‘Basketball Wives’ because sometimes we may get to Twitter to vent, which is probably not the greatest thing to do,” Evelyn tells Sister2Sister. “I think we all are guilty of probably doing that at some point.”

“Usually it starts up arguments when we’re filming,” she explains.”You’re forced to address certain issues and things that are going on. That’s why, at the reunions, it’s always heated and there’s always arguments because that’s basically when you lay everything on the table.”

Jen agrees that Twitter is certainly the catalyst for a lot of issues. “Twitter seems to cause a lot problems on ‘Basketball Wives,’ so it would be interesting if we didn’t have Twitter to see how that would go,” Jennifer acknowledges.

“There would be a lot less problems,” she admits, especially Tweets of the passive-aggressive nature which then get the followers and fans involved. “It can get little messy, and by the time the reunion rolls around, a lot of stuff has been said on Twitter.”

Evelyn also reveals that the reunions are the most stressful part of the season! “On the reunion there was obvious tension between me and Jennifer,” Evelyn says – particularly because she believed everything was fine with Jen. “I felt tension from her at the reunion and after we wrapped the reunion, she left and didn’t say goodbye to anyone.” And that was pretty much the end of their friendship! Yikes. Yet another example of how reality television and friendship simply don’t mix!

Moving on, Tami Roman doesn’t blame Twitter or anyone else for her issues and when it comes to taking sides, she is squarely on Team Tami. “I kind of mind my business unless it pertains to me,” Tami told VH1′s Big Morning Buzz.

Especially when it comes to Jen and Evelyn! “So I like them both and I’m still friends with them both even though they’re in the middle of conflict,” Tami added.

Tami also let new girls Kenya Bell and Kesha Nichols know they better tow the line! “This is how I operate, let’s try to stay in this format and you’ll be fine,” she told them upon meeting them, mentioning that she still has to get to know them a little better.

And finally, below is a sneak peak of tonight’s premiere episode! All the ladies are in NYC to kick of the season, but they certainly didn’t leave any of the drama behind in Miami!

In the preview, Evelyn is planning her wedding and only her most loyal friends are invited! So I guess that means the cast is off the guest list? Jen also talks about dealing with divorce and the break up with Evelyn – she seems so sad. The video is below! Just a warning: Evelyn’s eyeshadow is horrific!

Basketball Wives premieres tonight on VH1 at 8/7c!

DO YOU THINK TWITTER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR JENN AND EVELYN’S FALL OUT? WILL THEY EVER BE FRIENDS AGAIN? WILL YOU BE WATCHING TONIGHT?

As you know on Mob Wives, one day your archenemies, one day your having shots with the woman who was just screaming in your face. One afternoon you’re lunching with Big Ang (don’t I wish!), the next your ex-husband becomes a government snitch against your father. Such is life on Staten Island.

No one knows that better than the matriarch of the series, Renee Graziano. She’s been up and down as of late, with her horrible plastic surgery ordeal and her attempted reconciliation with ex-husband Hector “Junior” Pagan who turned tails on Renee’s dad as an FBI informant. Renee is quick to say that her show isn’t just about the mafia drama, but about showing others how to cope with extreme hardship.

Renee insists that she wouldn’t be on the show if she didn’t think it could help others. She tells Naughty but Nice Rob via the Huffingtonpost.com, “I remember the day I gave up drinking because that was the day that my father was arrested. Anthony Graziano is his name and he just came home [from prison]. My ex-husband got him arrested [again] — trust me.” Yikes. Renee gave up the Chardonnay? I guess we’ll see that next season. More power to her!

Speaking about Junior’s extremely disloyal conduct, Renee admits, The truth of the matter is, it is the ultimate betrayal. I don’t think it could have gone any worse than that. It is very hard and heart-wrenching to watch my son go through this. For me, I am strong.”

Continuing, the tormented reality star adds, “What makes [me] so strong? I think it’s the truth and I know that sounds silly to people, but I think God really put me on this earth to learn and teach so I think [H]e is letting me go through everything I have asked for. I believe I am here to help someone else and I think that’s the greatest gift.” Amen to that! I do hate Renee has been sidelined by so many awful situations. I do think that if anyone can handle the drama and strife, though, it’s her.

Thankfully, Renee has one thing going for her…her friends are reconciling their differences in order to appease her because of how much they value her friendship. The blog HollywoodLife.com spoke with Ramona Rizzo about her recent confrontation with cast mate Carla Facciolo. The women have been going at each other all season to anyone who will listen…except each other. However, on Sunday’s episode, Carla and Ramona had a terse meeting that ended in what appeared to be “frienemy” status.

In a an interview with the site, Ramona elaborates, “Whatever you need to do to smooth the way so that you know at the end of the day you made it better where everyone can be in a room together, that’s all that matters. I knew we were possibly going to have to be together because of Renee.

Citing the spa party, Ramona tells the blog that she never wants others to feel uncomfortable or unwelcome in her presence. Of that horrendous excuse for a party, she recalls, “I said ‘I don’t want anybody to ever have to say they don’t want to come to Renee’s house because I’m there.’”

Apparently, Ramona figured out that fighting with someone you’ve really never spent time with is just a drain of your own personal energy. She admits, “It just came to the point like enough. Let’s just do this. Let’s just be friends. Just nip it already or just go for it. I told her what I knew that she had said. We’ve moved on from it.”

According to Ramona, the pair is far from being biffles, but they are able to spend time together sans shouting, showdowns and table flips. While they will likely never be seen getting manicures amid giddy girl talk, Ramona reports, “We’re cordial to each other. When we see each other, we act like ladies. She has no bearing on my life and I have no animosity towards her.”

The bottom line for Ramona is that she’s happy the pair have declared a truce. Of their face-off meeting, Ramona remembers, “It went well. Honestly I didn’t expect it to go any other way. I didn’t expect Carla to get up and be crazy. If you talk, you can work out your problems. Carla is not a person that is going to raise her hand and neither am I unless someone is going to raise them to me. It went the way I expected it.” That’s good too, because I have seen Ramona once raise her hand to someone…on a balcony…at my main main Derek Tabacco. All’s well that ends well, of course, and it’s nice to hear these ladies are getting along.

On this Sunday’s episode, Drita D’avanzo has to face her toughest critic, daughter Aleeya. She’s curious about the things most young girls her age are wondering…like does mom get into fist fights and what is a “rat” if it’s not an animal who lives in the sewers and is often subjected to science experiments? Thankfully, Drita is saved by the bell from this inquisition when the phone rings…or is she? Watch a preview clip below!

After that pesky little football game sidelined the Mob Wives last week, the ladies were back last night with extra drama to make up for their absence.

The episode opens with Renee Graziano speaking with ex-husband Junior Pagan about how she feels an impending sense of doom.  However, she believes it is because of her loony friends having such heated arguments with each other.  She wasn’t too keen on hearing that Ramona has been talking smack about her all over town.  Renee is also stressed about Junior’s upcoming indictment.  The lady has a lot on her plate.

Drita D’avanzo discusses the state of her relationship with Lee with her daughter.  She brings up the “D” word, and while I am glad she’s talking about this to her daughter, it is irking me that she’s doing it on camera.  Her daughter tells her that Lee has promised to take all of the family on a vacation and she’d like to go to Hawaii.  Drita gets choked up by this revelation.

Sometimes it is easy to forget that the ladies of Mob Wives are called “mob wives” for a reason. However, due to the recent drama with Renee Graziano’s father and ex-husband, the women seem less like reality stars and more like the products of their crime family pasts.

Renee’s mobster father Anthony “TG” Graziano was just indicted on racketeering charges… charges that were a result of Renee’s ex-husband Hector “Junior” Pagan going all Benedict Arnold on Renee’s family by wearing a wire to get information from his former father-in-law.

A recent article from the online edition of the New York Post spoke about Renee’s breakdown outside the New York courthouse this week after her father was charged. She talked openly about her ex-husband (who she had hoped to reconcile with on the current season which filmed months ago). Her ex, as you know, ratted out her father by becoming an FBI informant.

As Renee’s father was taken away by U.S. Marshals, the Mob Wives star couldn’t handle the pressure of the given situation. And who can blame her? It was during this real life “Usual Suspects” moment that Renee realized perhaps Junior’s promises of a stronger relationship were nothing more than an attempt to get closer to her father to garner information for a DEA investigation, which would send her father back to the clink. Shame on you, Junior. Not that I’m pro-mobster, but I am totally against betraying your loved ones in exchange for immunity for your own misgivings.

A tearful Renee told the magazine, “They’re in ‘The Life’ with you one day, and then cooperating the next.”

Renee hasn’t seen Junior, who is reportedly in the witness protection program, but she is devastated by the potential effect on AJ, her 17-year-old son, with Junior. She reveals, “My son is taking this very hard. He loves his father.” Continuing, the mama bear is adamant that she “won’t forgive [Junior] for what he did to my son.”

Renee admits that had she known of Junior’s intentions she would have tipped off her father, regardless of the pair’s tumultuous relationship. She cites Junior’s actions as an “immense betrayal.”

“I would have told my father — 100 percent,” Renee promises the magazine.

The article points out that had Renee tipped off her father, she likely would have sealed her ex-husband’s fate. According to the New York Post, the mob is quick to extinguish government informants. As someone who has always been indifferent about Renee on the show, I do hate to hear that she could have potentially been put in such an explosive situation.

With the cameras still rolling for the VH1 hit, Renee chooses to focus on the positive things the series has done for women in her position. While she’s the star of a show which highlights the feminine side of the Mafia world, Renee wants to point out, “This is not about the men. It’s about what women go through.”

And speaking of turncoats, everyone’s favorite overly-enhanced second season addition, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, gave an interview to Good Day L.A. explaining the seemingly counterproductive concept of having a reality show about people whose family members are literally trying to remain anonymous… you know, because they’re hardened criminals and all.

Huffingtonpost reports on that appearance, saying that in this reality world of the mob, according to our love Big Ang “everybody rats” and the series is in no way on La Cosa Nostra’s radar.

Big Ang can relate to the world of informants, as she herself was arrested in a cocaine bust in 2001 because of one. She admits, “A girlfriend of mine, an informer, had a wire … She went into witness protection and then we all got arrested. I did house arrest … We had parties every day for six months.” Sounds kind of fun, right?

It certainly makes people wonder why these women would do a show when most of their family and friends are involved in a very secret–and very dangerous–crime ridden world. However, Big Ang believes that the secrecy involved with being part of a mob family rarely exists nowadays.

She explains, “How could it be secretive? Everybody’s rats … There’s no more secrets, they’re all ratting each other out. It’s over.”

Of course Big Ang is in the perfect place to call out the turn-coating ways of infamous Mafia crime families. Of her own family, linked to the mob, she admits, “Thank god they’re dead.” It’s definitely hard to hate on a show that exposes your family secrets when your family isn’t around to watch it!

WHAT DID YOU THINK OF JUNIOR TURNING ON RENEE’S DAD? IS HE JUSTIFIED TO EXPOSE A CRIMINAL OR DID HE OVER STEP THE BONDS OF FAMILY LOYALTY? THOUGHTS ON BIG ANG’S INTERVIEW?

On last night’s Love & Hip Hop, it was the Producer’s Tell All! I have to say I didn’t hate the format as much as I thought I would. With the ladies not yelling over one another, it was easier to get more questions answered… and they seemed to ask the questions viewers would want to know, aka no John Salley softballs!

The show’s executive producer Mona Scott-Young reveals that because one several cast members now refuse to be in the same room together, coughs Chrissy, the show has to forgo the traditional reunion format. Instead, viewers are treated to a behind the scenes look at the inner-workings of the show as well as one-on-one interviews with the cast.

First up, Jim Jones! The man, the myth, the dude at the center of a lot of the ladies’ drama. This season’s new cast mate, Yandy Smith was the rapper’s manager for the past eight years, and she was supposedly brought on at the request of his girlfriend Chrissy Lampkin. However, quickly, the ladies began feuding, with Jim caught in the middle. It resulted in a total breakdown of Jim and Yandy’s professional relationship which we watched play out over the course of the season.
