Behind The Scenes Of The Basketball Wives Season 2 Reunion – She Said/She Said

|

bball2_reunion_8

The thing to keep in mind regarding the Basketball Wives Season 2 reunion, is how different the backstage was versus the Season 1 reunion. Last year, the five primary cast members who showed up (Shaunie O’Neal, Evelyn Lozada, Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed and Suzie Ketcham) spent most of their pre-show time together, discussing the show, their lives, their lives on the show and various other gossip in the hair and makeup room. Flash forward to the Season 2 reunion, when everyone more or less stayed in their own dressing rooms (some of which were in separate buildings on the studio lot). Shaunie and Evelyn spent a bit of time together getting their hair done…and that’s about it. Whereas there were several opportunities to photograph these women as a group last time around, it wasn’t until they hit the stage that I was able to capture them all together. It felt a little colder than usual on set that day last month…and those sets are always freezing.

For this reason, as our main backstage reunion coverage, I’ve compiled quotes from various interviews regarding how these women felt about this season, next season, the drama, the circle and, perhaps most importantly, each other. They weren’t together physically, but many of their feelings were. And the ones that weren’t were only more fascinating. The results, organized by topic, are below…

Activism

Suzie Ketcham: So many people had reached out to me and have given me support like, – We've been bullied,” or, “My kid has been bullied at school and we like the way you handled yourself. – There were so many people who admired the way I handled myself during the show so if I didn’t attend the reunion, I would have let them down. They are the whole reason why I came.

Barnes, Matt

Jennifer Williams: [On Matt's Twitter comment regarding her leaked nude pictures] I was going to go in on him but I was like, I'm not giving him no light! I am not giving him no satisfaction because the minute I start some s*** with him, it makes him relevant! He needs to go to rehab and try to play a game! Leave me the hell alone!

Shaunie O’Neal: First of all, let me say this: there is nothing masculine about a man who dips into some women's stuff. I wouldn't ever want my man to do that. I find it a little strange. I'm all for having your girl's back, but this is some verbal arguing with some other ladies. Why, as a man, are you getting in that at all? This has nothing to do with him. Matter of fact, we don't even talk about him. We honestly don't even talk about Gloria, so I don't understand. I mean, I do understand, because I think that this show and the fact that we're talking about him is the only thing that makes Matt relevant. And I get it because you apparently like this because you came back. I don't know if he can find some other outlet, but really you're making yourself look crazy. Like, I'm really questioning a whole lot of stuff about Matt because, like, why are you talking to us? Nobody talk to Matt!

Gloria Govan: People argue. There was a domestic dispute; there was no violence. Just in the small community where Matt's from, people jumped on it.

Bullying

Suzie: There are so many people who are constantly bullied and harassed and they feel like s***. Some kids don't want to go to school; some people don't want to go to work. Then it gets to the point where there is a Columbine and they are like, “F*** it, we are just going to kill everybody,” or people go to the post office and just start shooting people up. It is a very serious problem! Bullying pushes people to kill themselves or just lose their head and go bananas. I am not saying that I am going to lose my mind on Basketball Wives and just start popping off on people, but I think I really empathized and feel with people now. I feel a lot of people's pain and what they are going through.

Evelyn Lozada: I think there was the perception that I was bullying [Suzie]. It’s frustrating ’cause that's not what it is. Every other day it was something else. She was running her mouth about every goddamn thing. It wasn't just the Vegas thing, it was other things and as filming went on it would just build, build, build. That's why I had beef with her the whole time.

Circle, The

Evelyn: [On invoking the terminology] “I told Suzie she was out the circle. I was like, ‘This is the circle and you are here,’ because of Meet The Parents. The father-in-law was like, ‘This is the circle.’”

Royce Reed: I think we heard it the last season. I don't remember who started it, but it became more prevalent this one. When we were filming this time and I'm like, “What is this circle crap?” I am not a cliquish person. I try to get along with everybody. If I don't like you, I don't like you, but I am not going to sit there and have the mentality like, “Oh my friend doesn't like you so I don't like you, either.” I am not in high school…I don't consider myself in the circle at all. I'm like on the outside of the circle running around like I am running track and s***. I don't play the field events.

Shaunie: You know, we don't walk around saying , “We're the circle!” Like, nobody does that. She just was using that as an analogy at that moment. I think people have taken that whole, “This is the circle – thing a bit to the left. We honestly would never ever say that, Evelyn was just trying to break it down for her at that point. We got it, nobody else did.

Govan, Gloria

Suzie: I love Gloria. Gloria is my girl.

Ashley Walker: Gloria's cool.

Jennifer: With Matt and Gloria when they had their domestic violence situation — I don't wish that on anybody. Although I don't really care for Gloria, I don't want to see anybody go through that.

Ketcham, Suzie

Ashley: I'm cool with Suzie, I think Suzie's cool. People put that past Suzie, but I think she's cool.

Evelyn: Me and her will never be friends. I will never f*** with her ever again but I knew that she felt bad.

Royce: I talk to Suzie a few times a month…I kind of threw her under the bus by [telling Tami what Suzie said about her] and I felt really bad about it, but she eventually got over it..

Lozada, Evelyn

Suzie: I have moved on with that whole Evelyn situation. I really don't care anymore. It's actually boring to me when people try to talk to me about it — I am like, “Ugh, f***ing here we go again. – They really weren't my real friends. I have real friends that I still have from kindergarten.

Ashley: I got respect for Evelyn. She does her thing.

Shaunie: She's a sweetheart, but you piss her off and you're going to get what you get. It is what it is.

Mean and Evil

Jennifer: We always debate about which one is worse! And I'm like evil is way worse than mean! Hello! Check the dictionary!

Evelyn: I am probably the evil one. I am more of the one that's like, “Hmmmm…”. Jen can be mean sometimes. You know, we were called that even before the show. My business partner was the one that started calling us that ’cause we would be out or in the club or somewhere talking s*** and she would be like, “You guys are just Mean and Evil.” I can see me being the evil one.

Menstruation

Jennifer: I have my period, so these bitches better leave me alone! Sorry if it's TMI but it is what it is!

Messiness

Evelyn: I think everyone has a little messy ish to them. Whatever, I think everybody has their own thing that they are going through and dealing with. Nobody is perfect and it is what it is. I never sat up here and acted like my s*** was perfect and I don't think anyone's life perfect so I think a little messiness is interesting. You know it really is, it's boring if it wasn't.

Tami Roman: If you are not good TV, then you are gone, so everybody has to have an element of messy, whatever that is!

Jennifer: I don't think I am messy!

Negativity

Suzie: I was trying to avoid negativity. I hate negativity. There is already so much negative s*** in your life that you have to deal with, like all of sudden you find out that your father has cancer or someone's child got into some kind of accident. [The stuff on the show] is negativity that I can choose not to deal not to deal with. That's why I kept walking away from certain situations. Why am I going to make myself endure so much bulls***?

Jennifer: I have enough in my personal life to be arguing with some catty bitches.

O’Neal, Shaunie

Tami: At the end of the day, even though she is on the show she is also the executive producer. She is in the business of making a great show. From a personal stand point, I think she would like to be friendly but at the same time, she still has to make a great show. She does what she has to do.

Suzie: Shaunie, I have so much respect for her. I admire her as a person. She is a mother of five and has dealt with a divorce and is where she is right now. It's not like she is just sitting home enjoying her child support and alimony. She is actually doing a lot with her life and I love that. I hope that this situation with Evelyn doesn't affect my relationship with Shaunie.

Ashley: She gets her hustle on, but we've never really spoken.

Evelyn: I don't think me and Shaunie are ever going to beef…Me and Shaunie don't have anything to…we laugh all the time like, “What the f*** is going on?”

Ochocinco, Chad

Jennifer: It is kind of a different ball game now, because [he and Evelyn] are engaged. I think whenever you hear “athlete” you have to be a little leery, even if it was with myself! But if Evelyn is happy then that is all that matters.

Evelyn: Everything is great! We enjoyed our summer together. We went to Europe together and this weekend is his daughter's birthday party, so we are kind of just spending time together: my daughter his kids.

Pictures (nude and leaked variety)

Jen: If I wanted everybody to see me f***ing naked I would go to Playboy and get paid for it so please!

Evelyn: When Jennifer's pics leaked, [Royce] said she leaked them herself. I am Jennifer's good friend and that was hurtful to me because she was entertaining people on Twitter, retweeting f***ed up s*** that people were saying about her. I don't think that's cool.

Royce: I know Jen has an issue with me because I didn't call her and talk to her when her pictures came out. I am not going to be phony about it. I told her I felt like she did it and I am not going to call her, like, “Oh my God, Are you OK?” If she did it, OK, and if she didn't OK, but I am still entitled to my opinion.

Evelyn: If she wants to do s*** for fame, she's not going to have her f***ing p**** online. Like, that's not her. That's why I have the beef with Royce. I'm going, “You've got some goddamn nerve.” And my loyalty's to Jen. Like, that's f***ed up.

Shaunie: Jen went there, though, with her pictures. I was like, “Jen! What the -? Jennifer?” They weren't the ones were you had to cover your eyes and peeking out, but I was a little uncomfortable. I love her, but I didn't love her that much.

Suzie: I am so busy, sometimes I can't even remember to feed myself, so for me, to be worrying about my leaked nude pictures, or whatever? Seriously?

Royce: [On her own hypothetical nude shots] If I am sending pictures like that to somebody, I believe in no face/no name. But on top of that, I know who I am sending my pictures to and I am going to call them out on everything.

Shaunie: [On her nonexistent nude shots] Evelyn and Jen have naked-picture bodies. I would need to get it together if I was going to do that. I'd be doing straight ass shots or something.

Jen: Everybody keeps saying that: “Well you looked good in picture. – Yeah, but that's really not the point. I mean if I didn't think I looked good I probably wouldn't have taken them or saved them or whatever the case, but that is beside the point.

bball2_reunion_30

Reed, Royce

Tami: I have spoken to Royce and Ashley more than the people that I thought I was bonding with the most.

Suzie: I love Royce.

Ashley: I'm real cool with Royce.

Evelyn: The thing with Royce is she is a little s***-talker. She plays both sides.

Reunion (Season 1)

Suzie: I felt so horrible about what I did to Sandra with the water, throwing the bucket on her. When I was sitting in jail, it really made everything real. I was like, “What am I doing?” I am 31 years old running around like that. What kind of role model am I to people?

Royce: I think at the last reunion I was so emotional because I had got a chance to show people who I really was. After stuff that has been written in the media about me, it gave me a chance to show people I am not crazy!

Reunion (Season 2) (the vibe backstage)

Suzie: It’s very segregated. I feel like I am in prison! But honestly, I wouldn't have wanted it to be any other way because I don't want to be around negativity.

Evelyn: Last season, the air was kind of cool, but now as you can see they have us separated. Things aren't that great.

Shaunie: I was telling Evelyn, last time we came, like, – What up! Hey! – everything was real congenial. This time there’s tension, but it's funny on our end because I guess we're considered the mean girls. I was just telling Evelyn I think that we are the real girls and they might be the angry ones.

Royce: I think they are trying to get real emotions onstage, and I am guessing certain people don't speak. Like I said I don't talk to Jen, Evelyn and Shaunie so I don't know what's going on with them. I don't know if they are still tight or if something else has gone down. There could have been another situation like the Suzie crap. I have no idea.

Jennifer: I am the type of individual were I can go to dinner they can all be in the same room. It wouldn't really faze me. I don't really care about s*** like that!

Roman, Tami

Ashley: Tami and I, we're really cool.

Royce: I talk to Tami every now and then.

Gloria: I've never met Tami.

Shaunie: We're cool with Tami, we think… Tami, I talk to her sometimes through BBM. I check on her because her mom's been sick and things like that and she'll run some business stuff by me sometimes.

Season 3

Jennifer: I just don't know what this season holds. I'm sure it's like Jennifer moving on — Jennifer dates, which I'm really not looking forward to going on any blind dates.

Evelyn: I am like, “What the f*** are we going to do next?” But we always worry about that and it always comes together. S*** just unfolds. Shaunie is like, “You can't even write this. This is really what happens.”

Tami: I think that the show stands on its own, and that it was good the first season. I think it would be good the third season even if I wasn't on it. It's not necessarily that they need me to be apart of the show… For me going into Season 3, if I were to do it it would definitely only be because I felt that I have something more to bring. I don't want to be on the show just arguing and being catty. I don’t want that being the only element that I am bringing to the show, ’cause that's not really who I am as a person in my entirety.

Shaunie: We didn't know how we were going to top Season 1. We just roll with it. Sometimes we think we're boring as hell, like, that s*** is awful, and then you see it on camera like, oh, ok! That's impressive!

Ashley: You've got to weigh the options on your family and in your relationship, like, is it worth it?

Shoes

Royce: I like my sneakers. I am not into the six inch heels. I'll wear them but I might be taking them off on this stage. They keep telling me, “Please don't do that.” We got some bedazzled sneakers or something?

Sisterly bond

Jennifer: You film with these people for so many months. I care about all my cast mates — I am human. I don't know if they would say the same thing about me, but I don't want see anybody going through something that is negative or something that I know hurts them because I am not that type of person.

Evelyn: The honest-to-God truth, I would say there was sort of a sisterly bond. Tami was coming into that. Royce was definitely not in that sisterly bond circle. She had her two things to say but I didn't leave Spain feeling like, “Wow we were all close and Royce is part of our sisterhood,” and s***. No she wasn't. No it's not and it is never going to be that way.

Royce: I'm over the girly stuff. I'm not a chick person so I don't really have time for the chick s***.

Tami: I have spoken to Royce and Ashley more than the people that I thought I was bonding with the most. It's weird because I thought that when we left the show that it would be more camaraderie, but I have found that social media plays a big part in how people deal with each other.

Suzie: They really not my friends. I have a whole lot of great friends and great family that support me and those are the people that matter.

Twitter

Evelyn: Gloria was kind of in a Twitter rant with Royce and jumping on the bandwagon with Royce's little s***-talking on Twitter. I since then blocked her out.

Tami: With all the Twittering, [the women on the show] try to be friends, but then people say, – Oh the show is fake.” The show is not fake, but if they see us talking [on Twitter], they are going to think that what they are seeing is fake, so you kind of lay off a little so that you don't cause problems for the show. So there are a lot of different elements that make having a friendship very awkward in terms of the show and the public.

Gloria: And all that s*** I was talking, and now I'm on Twitter. Go figure, that's fine, I'm over it.

TV-making

Suzie: “[Throwing water is] not me, I just got caught up in the excitement of TV.”

Evelyn: I am never fake on camera. I say what I want to say and it's how I feel. I am not going to switch things out or paddle around certain things because the camera is on, so it's what it is.

Ashley: That may be something I regret: Rafer should have never been on that show because that's personal. It's one thing if you talk about me, but when you talk about my relationship with my family, then you're taking it to another level and that's when there's problems.

Villainy

Evelyn: I am always the bad guy. I'm really a nice person — I really am — but for the most part [the reaction] has been more good then bad. It kind of depends on the episode, though. One Sunday, Shaunie was the f***ing devil fighting with the Gloria argument. You just never know, but you always have the people who just love to hate you. I don't care.

Walker, Ashley

Suzie: I love Ashley.

Shaunie: I don't really know Ashley at all.

Williams, Jennifer

Ashley: As far as Jennifer, our personalities are different. We're not necessarily on speaking terms. I got respect for the girl, I mean, she's got a lip gloss line and s***, she's got her thing. I wouldn't necessarily talk s*** about her, but we're not necessarily cool, you know what I'm saying?

Gloria: I'm kind of interested to see what Jen has to say, even if Evelyn has to throw in her own 2 cents.

Suzie: I think Jen is right there with Evelyn. I liked Jen, but she is going to be Evelyn’s sidekick and do whatever Evelyn wants her to do.

    Tami: Kudos to you for attempting to change your life. You DO NOT people like Evelyn as your so called friend since you deserve so much better than that. Why women feel the need to bring other women down is beyond me since we all share many of the same experiences. You are beautiful inside and out and deserve real friends who can lift you up and not bring you down. I think you are beautiful inside and out and know how to handle your business. Yeah you may have had some tough breaks, but it has indeed made you stronger. I wish you nothing but success as you are a work in progress. Don’t let rif/raf like Evelyn get in the way of you becoming the best you can be. Keep your head up my sistah.

  2. Cassandra says:

    What an inspiration you are to your dauhgter!
    I mean the language…what a role model to young girls ..to woman period.

    Did Chad have to work for the panites…well why would he if no one else had to

  3. eric says:

    evelyn your the worst!!!!! what is chad thinking? chad chad chad WHY ? EVERYONE has been with her! she just a bad bad bad person.

  4. Denni Macklin says:

    I would love to know the educational background of these people. I wonder what Evelyn’s daughter thinks when she sees how her mother talks and acts. Evelyn is so insecure and uses her body, her weaves, and those ugly shoes to compensate for her short comings. What classy lady would use that awful language and throw water in faces? The one I really feel sorry for is Jennifer because she has allowed her life to be defined by Evelyn. And what makes Evelyn think that Chad Johnson is the best for her? They are too much alike and thrive on attention. He needs to go somewhere and act like a father and stop chasing fame. Evelyn is a gold digger and goes after men for money. That union will not last. I am done with the Basketball Hoodrats.

  5. Cheryl says:

    Those shoes were off the chain that Evelyn were wearing. Wasn’t feeling the dress but them shoes…Holla!!

  6. Alisha says:

    I love Shaunie’s shoes and want to know where I can get a pair. Also I love the flawless hair and make up on Tami and Shaunie. All the women look very nice but those two were my favorite looks.

  7. Clt says:

    Can Evelyn be anymore of a trashy, vulgar so and so? Please try to speak WITHOUT cursing. Not cute. I don’t even like Chad Johnson and I feel sorry for him if he marries this golddigger. She was “engaged” 9 years for a reason. You don’t marry a woman like her. Stay “engaged” until you get a real classy woman. Not this Bronx trash.

  8. Rhoda says:

    I was just wondering if they set a date for the wedding?
    Or is this going to be another long engagement? You know the first season you hear all about how Evelyn was in the same situation as Shaunie and Jennifer. But I’m lost cause she was never married. I fail to see how she could compare herself with them when she failed to close the deal. All I can say is I hope she closes it this time.

  9. sylvia says:

    Evelyn apparently can’t count if your daugther and antoine was after your affair with kenny, then how is your daughter 17 yrs old and you claim the affair was before that.. Do the math somebody is lying real hard…

  10. sylvia says:

    Poor Evelyn, started off as a jump off and trying to end up as a wife. I think you should have kept you sleeping with Kenny to yourself. Yu are physically pretty (before or after surgery) I don’t know,but that smart mouth and bitterness let that ride.. Then people would not bash you so much,….

  11. crazygirl says:

    Okay, I am trying to do the math. I slept with your husband in 1999 (12 yrs ago). My daughter is 17/18 off to college. I was engaged for 10 years, then I say how could the affair happen before your daughter and Antionne? Or was she speaking so fast she jumbled things up? Then to say I believe she deep down Tami knew? That is more proof Evelyn knew all along of Tami marriage. @ Tami I was rolling when you said you slept with Chad, but I knew right off it was not true…lol…The reason Evelyn is upset with Suzie, is because Suzie got the scope of the golddigging and what athlete she probably messed with in Vegas….hmmm…I do not believe Royce is a mole, she made any mistake many of us women have made…Getting caught up in the madness at the time conversations are going on. She did tell Suzie the truth and she said it herself, she was covering herself, who do they expect her to cover them? Shaunie is quiet now, but I believe she is the mess starter, everyone saying “Oh she is about her money” I believe in making your money, but just call it what it is, you not innocent. Was she not right there talking about having to check Tami suitcase and did not stand up for her friend? Tami you looked the best, keep it real, just calm down the fighting, you are to good for that. I believe Royce not coming back, so she is telling it all. Listen to Salley smart comments to Evelyn seem like she is known quite well in the league, not good. Although it is messy and crazy, I will not lie and say I will not watch, it is entertainment (TV)

  12. evking says:

    Like I said…. this is now getting kinda lame! Royce is hard to watch & listen to! She doesn’t even belong in this program!? Cheerleader? Please cut her out or your gonna lose watchers. Evelyn will be going places cuz she’s naturally beautiful, real. funny and holds nothing back. I could watch her all day. Tami has gotten real old. She needs alcohol rehab and therapy for self esteem. Get rid of Royce & Tami and I’ll start watchin again.

  13. sylvia says:

    Evelyn you are something of a hot mess on six wheels rolling. My must not be able to count because you have a teen age child , do the math either way it go YOU ARE LYING WITH FLAMES OF FIRE COMING FROM YOU TONGUE

  14. Kline says:

    Evelyn you keep doing you all these HATERS can keep it moving. Royce is trying to act like she is all that with her home done dye job, lol.

  15. sexyleo says:

    Do you know how to count, if we do the math your child is older than your affair, fool.. YOu air this mess and cliamed Tami was tryin to make her mark on the show. IT’s she the reason the show is now an hour long…

  16. A lady with class says:

    I was so embarrased by the use of the F word on the reunion shows. Evelyn truly is so insecure that she feels like her use of the F word makes her a bigger person. I think John Salley was also embarrassed as a brother to hear these ladies be as catty as they were.

    Evelyn, you need to go back to class…to get some class. How in the hell are you going to own a shoe store then leap into the arms of Ocho when he sends you a pair of frecking shoes….At least let him take you on a trip or buy you a car sweetie…you sold yourself short. For you to have a daughter…is this the way you want her to carry herself? I think you sent us back 100 years the last two nights…not only during the show itself.

    Gloria and Suzie….continue to be the ladies that you are. Jen sweetie, I think you are going to find out next season that your little Evelyn has more secrets to dish. Remember Eric told you “you don’t know Evelyn like I do”…and I believe him and you might just find out.

    So, Miss Executive Producer Shanie…don’t continue to display us women as tramps and losers….there is more to TV than this.

  17. susan says:

    EVELYN EVELYN EVELYN I THOUGHT UR SHOES WERE ug
    AND U KNOW U SLEPT WITH TAMI HUSHBAND WHRN THEY WERE MARRIED, AND EVERYBODYS KNOWS IT,
    U SAD SAD PERSON. BUT I GUESS

    AND UR KEEPING IT REAL !!!!

  18. Tina123 says:

    Evelyn, you made my day when you shut Royce down I don’t know what’s gotten into her clearly she’s out of her league. Hopefully, VH1 will give you a reality show. I love Jennifer but you and Tammi are clearly the stars of Basketball wives.

  19. Belizean Chick Miss D says:

    Does Anybody She How Much Weight Evelyn Lost.@ Evelyn i taught Chad was gonna make you better but girl you look sick.Your Attitude is wack to be a mother. ya’ll should be setting examples. Tami I like you the Most Keep it Ma’. Evelyn you need to stop Open yuh leg and open a dictionary.

  20. marvalisa says:

    Evelyn….WOW… Really…..I hope and Pray your Daughter
    never see part 2 reunion show….. I would never on GOD’s Earth would want my Daughter see her Mother (ME)…and my coworkers ast and talk they way most of you all did….. MOST OF ALL YOU HER MOTHER… I pray and wish you a life of Joy.

  21. TX Girl says:

    Evelyn, honey what is the deal with your mouth? Sweetie, please know that I am not trying to judge you, but you must learn a better way to express your thoughts. Your present yourself as tacky and tasteless. People can no longer see your beauty and stylish clothes, because all your “F” bombs are ringing in their ears. Please learn your value and represent yourself better as a lady. Remember that you have an almost adult daughter, please represent her and you better. Also, keep the mate that you seek in mind. You are representing him, weather you guys have met or not. Just like you hope to find a nice well rounded man/gentleman, why would you think that he would expect anything less of his woman? Please be the person that you wish to find. That is fair, right? You have taped your life for the world to see in the years and years to come. Even when you become an older women in the future, your past life will be in someones video library for 24/7 viewing. So, remember that simple fact when you tape season 3. Be Blessed, TX Girl

  22. PLEASE GET ROYCE OUT OF THE SHOW!!!! says:

    I am sorry for the man that ends up with Royce!!! OMG! She is ridiculous! “Mr whatever your name is” go and thank your creator for making your relationship with her not work! I make it a duty to do other things when she comes on…like browse the internet or reply my text messages. I can’t stand that girl!

  23. Taz says:

    What surprises me more than anything is that VH1 allowed such horrible behavior from these “women”! I mean c’mon.. I get the whole ratings things but couldn’t the producer have said something like okay “ladies” obviously there are going to be some disagreements but let’s remember you are “ladies” and have some respect for yourselves and keep the swearing to a minimum. I was disgusted by Evelyn’s language – How proud her family must be of her – and she’s a Mother too?? Wow.. hope her daughter has someone else to follow as a role model!! Shame on you VH1 for not setting some guidelines for the reunion special – you can still have drama without the vulgarity! Every single one of these “women” with the exception of Tami should be mortified by their behavior.. what’s sad is they probably are not! Pitiful…

  24. Princess07 says:

    My question is this: Why must we as black women allow these TV networks to show us as low class women? All of these women including Shaunie have sold their souls for rating. I could not find not one positive role model for young girls in this bunch. I don’t think I would want my daughters looking up to these fools. They say they have charities that they sponors, but the only charities I see them sponsoring is liquor and shoes. Nothing positive to help young ladies exceed throughout life.

    Just crazy!

    Oh well…I sure am sad Oprah and Tyra have gone off the network. Maya Angelou please save us from this hot mess.

    its easy to see why shaunie, jennifer and Evelyn are on this show. they create drama. but all three have little class. but they have one thing in common. no man wants them.Evelyn sleeps with a guy on their first date,thats a straight jump off. any man with any sense would think , if she slept me right out the box who else did the same. and you can tell by her limited vocabulary she has very little education.how about her appearance on the reunion?her hair was a mess, her make up looked like a combination of vinyl spackle and cake frosting. and yet she comments on royce’s shoes.you know when you stoop to that you have nothing else to come back with that is relevant. and its easy to see why shaq got rid of shaunie. she is like 40 and acts 14. that s brings us to the jennifer geez where do you start. leaking her own nude pics? and things she is playboy material? good lord this heffa looks like dwanye wade with a flea market weave. she does have slightly more class than Evelyn , but then that isnt saying much. her husband all but told her he doesnt want to be with her. and yet she has a hard time comprehending that. seems like she a reality perception problem.

    Why do people keep saying everybody is jealous of Eve,Jen what for they’re nothing but two jump offs who love no one but money what great marriage material oh and when is alright to put other people down but when they get on your ass they jealous if you can dish it out then you can take it.

  27. mbw says:

    Shaunie instead of questioning Gloria’s sister sleeping with Shaq, you need to check Evelyn! I’m done with this, I could watch if Evelyn and her foul mouth weren’t on, but nope you won’t fool me twice.

  28. mbw says:

    Also, do they know any phrases besides,”it is what it is.?

    Hello. This comment is for Evelyn. Evelyn you are a beautiful women but your behavior on the reunion show last night to me… was appalling. What you do behind closed doors is your business but to put yourself on front street like that was disrespectful to you and more importantly to your beautiful and intelligent daughter!!! I have been around the block more than a few times and very little shocks me however girl you might want to think about toning it down.
    From one East coast girl to another…much love and success to you.

  33. coco says:

    Capricornlady said it all!!!!!! My feelings exactly on every one of them.

    I also think they all need to take lessons from the REAL BASKETBALL WIVES….the other women who were introduced to the circle by Shaunie…..they have REAL class, they’re mature, have sustained their marriages/relationships and haven’t sold themselves short for money OR TV (although I love watching these GIRLS, it’s entertainment).

  34. DEEMAN says:

    JEN IS THE SIMPLEST THING I EVER SAW! THIS CHICK DOESN’T HAVE A MIND OF HER OWN. THANK GOD SHE HAS NO KIDS. WHERE THE HELL DO THEY DIG UP THESE SLEEZEBALLS? I MEAN THERE’S GOT TO BE SOME DECENT WIVES OF ATHLETES OUT THERE RIGHT? ALL THIS PROVES IS THE DECENT WIVES OF ATHLETES WOULDN’T LOWER THEMSELVES TO MAKE A SHOW LIKE THIS! VH1 HAS TO SCRAPE THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL WHEN THEY MAKE THESE SHOWS! CLASSLESS, JUVENILE AND GHETTO FAB IS ALL THESE WOMEN WILL EVER BE, EXCEPT FOR GLORIA!

  35. Meka says:

    Ok where to start. Its so much crap that its so hard to begin. First of all none of you all are married at this time except for Jen but her stupid self about to get a divorce. Jen if you was not so busy runny behind evelyn then u will have time to work on your marriage. Evelyn aint thiinking about you when she sleeping with everyone.

    I feel that they should lay off of Gloria because you all act like you all better than people. Tammi be careful with all but Royce because they was talking about how you dress and laughing about it and yiur “girl” Shauni lauged along with them. Tammi I like u but u went and told them what royce told u to so all u girls oh yeah women are guilty of telling each other business

    In Spain it was no reason for Shaunie to act the way she was acting with Royce it was like she was putting on a show or follow evelyn and jen.

    Evelyn i am so glad Tammi hit u in the last episode. I wish they did not hold her and she had beat the mess out of you i dont curse i am a lady. I was waiting all season for someone to hit u because u are so loud and rude and i think u r a beautiful woman but your mouth and your attitude make u very ugly

    Royce u my girl stay being u aint nothing wrong being u and being different so what jennifer help u with your so called gear last season u still look better than her cause u r real. and u was cute for your bf what evelyn wore for ocho look like maturnity wear.

  36. love me says:

    So let me get this straight…Evelyn is engaged to a football player Right!!! So Shouldn’t she be leaving the show soon…cause it is Basketball Wives and not Football Wives……So Koodos HOE!!

  37. Pretty Black Girl says:

    I love me so Evelyn & Jen. Quit hating HATERS

  38. icemama72 says:

    WELL ALL I HAVE TO SAY I , HAVE NO PROBLEM,S WITH NONE OF THE LADIES. REALLY BUT I DON,T LIKE GLORIA, SHE CAN GET HERSELF RIGHT OFF THE SHOW. AND ROYCE STOP PLAYING SIDES MY GIRL.

  39. Ann says:

    Evelyn looks 100% like the troll she acts like. She is not fit to be around small children and I would like to see how she interacts with Chad Ochocinco’s children. I noticed that her daughter seemed to be afraid of her when she was talking to her boyfriend. With all the faux basketball wives, I only watched this season to see Chad even though it was painful to see him bitten by a Cobra. Chad could do so much better than Evelyn and there were even classier women on his VH1 dating series. I’m surprised that he wanted such an old used passed around hand me down with such a foul mouth and psycho personality.

  40. dramafree says:

    EXCEPT! for…Tami.

  41. Cynthia says:

    Shaunie, Why would you have Evelyn tell Tammi that she slept with her ex-husband? Is there any reason, after so many years for anyone to unburden their soal? This is just a very RUDE reminder of why Tammi is devoriced! The same with you, after you have finally moved on with your life, we all hope you do, would you want anyone, friend, or stranger, walking up to you 10 years later, to let you know they slept with your husband? Most LADIES, wouldn’t want any sort of trash brought back to their door. It seems everytime there is any gossip going around, you are right in the middle of it. Stirring up trash. SHUT YOUR MOUTH! Be a lady for once, stop all the drama!

  42. Danni 22 says:

    I watch the show with my 18teen year old daughter after work and evelyn is to funny she is just like the women she talks about and its sad u have a daughter who is going to see this and be sad her mother is acting like a hoe for the world. You got the nerve to call other women who aren’t wives, hoes and gold diggers that really your title so enjoy being a hoe for the world to see…Love u Royce way to stayed up for ya self I was happy to see u do that..In Detoit they would have been got hit and a check would be written already…lolololDETROITWOMAN

  43. Tarrah says:

    I loved Evelyns shoes on the reunion! Actually I like Shaunie, Evelyn, Jennifer, and Tami but Royce and Gloria are busters! Does Royce know how dumb she looks when she says she went to Spain because it was on Shaunie’s dime? That is just a punk thing to say. I love the drama though. this show cracks me up!
