It’s time once again to welcome Royce Reed back to the blog so she can tell it like it is. For the past two seasons of Basketball Wives, Royce has recapped every episode, all the highs and lows, and given us her completely honest and unfiltered opinion. We’re thrilled to have her back for season four.
It’s Season Four and a lot has happened in the past almost 2 1/2 years you viewers have watched our lives. We have all grown by age, but not necessarily in maturity. Lets be blunt, sometimes watching yourself on TV causes you to cringe and say “Why did I do that?” At least I do. Others I believe may actually think it’s cool. That’s fine though, it makes for a highly rated show so like they say, “Do you, boo boo.”
This whole episode was eating and drinking…do we EVER do anything else? Let’s catch up, let’s meet, let’s talk about the past, make a toast, take a shot and call it a mofo day or night. But I guess we had to recap the viewers on where everything stands before the bottle tossing and bitch slaps, so I digress.
Evelyn is getting married y’all. Yeah, I said it. I’ll admit I thought it was a publationship (that’s a relationship for publicity) but I seriously doubt anyone would get married solely for attention…especially after calling me out about having a blog, a twitter account, etc. when she now has more followers than all of us, tweets that ruin friendships, and a new blog…I’m just saying. I hope she doesn’t eat her words, because I will be serving up a lot of sh*t if I find out it’s fake. With that said, I’ll leave that notion alone and say that I do now believe the relationship is real. As far as not having bridesmaids, to each their own. A plus for that is no one gets their feelings hurt when they aren’t a “chosen one.” However, when I get married, trust I’m having a huge wedding with an intro like Coming To America and every bridesmaid will be in shape or in bootcamp because I will not have ANY ALTERNATE DRESSES walking down the aisle standing next to me. Yes, I’m serious. I’ll just let them be the guestbook attendant…Moving on.
Suzie and Jenn. Seriously? Okay, first of all let’s call a spade a spade. You all are close right now by default. Suzie, you have run your mouth repeatedly and now you wonder why I’m not speaking to you? I said hello when you texted me. I also let you know you were full of sh*t. Everyone saw how pressed you were to become friends with people who could care less and I still had your back. But first time shame on you, second time shame on me. Third time…won’t be a third time… Jenn, sweetie, how are you calling someone immature and friendless? “At the end of the day,” I’m free and I go home with my pride, my dignity and REAL FRIENDS.On top of that, last I checked we were in the same boat but I wasn’t shedding tears. I let go of trying to befriend people who didn’t respect me or who were lacking common sense a long time ago. I took the shackles off my feet over a year ago so I can dance…Now Playing: Mary Mary ‘Shackles.’
Kesha is a breath of fresh air. She doesn’t look white to me and I like her southern accent. Suzie and her “She doesn’t look like a Kesha and she sounds like a redneck hillbilly” comment is ignorant as HAYELL! Yes I said HAYELL! But what do we expect from someone giving blow job lessons in a crowded restaurant. I still have love for Suzie but she knows better especially when people have commented on her race. Suzie, reality check… you DON’T look Asian even though you are. Anyways, most of us have heard Kesha’s story through the internet or on other news outlets but hearing it come from the horse’s mouth brings more truth than rumors. Funny how that works…fighting a beast when you’re an ant is hard. I’ve been there, done that, still doing it. Truth eventually comes out no matter how big no matter how small. *MeSsAgE*
Tami, Tami, Tami…I love you but you had a messy moment. I understand you trying to get Jenn and Evelyn to speak and trying to see where each of their minds are. BUT that’s not where the problem was. The problem was you going back to Jenn and Suzie about our lunch date with Kesha and Kenya. You call me out when I’m wrong so now I’m calling you out. That was deadass wrong. There was a different way to say how the first impressions went, but it was delivered all types of messy. Imma give you a pass because…hell…I don’t have a reason, I just am. But next time Imma wear full armor and tell it like it is so when I get popped it won’t hurt. Imma still say it though…Anyways, we have concluded Suzie is sex-crazed, Jenn is bougie, and both act real bold and hard around each other but get soft as hell when in an environment that gets uncomfortable. Kenya loves Jenn tho…remember that.
This whole Evelyn and Jenn debacle. All the messages I receive about me laughing behind closed doors or saying I told you so isn’t happening. I don’t LIKE to be right about things like this. I just never felt the friendship was as solid or close and it looked to most viewers. I’ve know these women since summer 2009. I’ve seen a lot, heard a lot, but never vocalized much. It wasn’t my place to tell them “This friendship is the pits!” Just from last season it seemed very one-sided and strained. I’ve never really seen them get deep or support each other fully. It always seemed full of side-eyes and judgments. Ten years or not, time doesn’t constitute the title of “Best Friend.” But,again to each their own. Crocodile tears aside, what I DON’T respect is passing off blogs you didn’t write as your own then retracting them and throwing the true author under the bus when you get backlash from it. Being a writer myself…(College Girls book one out now available on amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com in Kindle, Nook and hard copy form…shameless plug…)
I take great pride in being able to express my opinions on vh1.com each episode for the third season in a row. I have been criticized by many including a few of my castmates and guess what…I don’t give a damn because what does the first sentence of my blog say every week?
OK HERE WE GO! AGAIN THIS IS MY BLOG AND I SAY WHAT I WANT WHEN I WANT AND HOW I WANT. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT DON’T READ IT.
#BOOM You don’t have to like what I say but its my opinion and I stand by everything that comes out my mouth, right or wrong. You may not agree but I’ll be damned if I blame it on someone else. If it has my name on it trust and believe I wrote it, no ghostwriter, no publicist, etc. ME! Period! I’ll take all criticism as long as I have my respect! Peace out!
