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.
Strength in Numbers
Where is this “nice” side coming from? I haven’t seen in it a while and due to the fact you refuse to film with me I guess I won’t see it anytime soon. It was sweet for you to take your sister out. I couldn’t tell you the last time I got my nails or feet done so I can definitely relate. I’m sure she really appreciated that and it shows you have a heart. That pretty much all I have to say about Evelyn besides the fact I almost dropped my “tea” when she said Kenya’s wig was “leanin’.”
I’m still confused, so I’ll just say you found negativity in a remark meant to help you. No, Kesha didn’t want to work with you anymore in terms of using her company (which was her professional decision), but she was still willing to be there for you as was I on a personal level for support…and entertainment. Although it wasn’t shown, please remember your audition was very unorganized. I asked you about taking photos, resumes, asking them to perform/walk, etc. since it WAS a dance and modeling audition. You told them to freestyle and assumed they could learn choreography from doing the two step. You had no idea what to ask them. You wanted people there so much you had them coming in off the street asking “What is this? They just told me to come in.” FACT IS, sometimes you need to just sit back and listen instead of thinking everyone is a “hater.” If your dream is to become a successful performer you need to learn and find strength from those of us who have been there, still there and doing a pretty good job at our crafts. Kesha tried to help you, I tried to help you, and Tami also.
Speaking of Tami…Kenya, in that business meeting, at NO point should you have not been prepared to sing or dance. Me being a dancer, you had on a pretty loose fitting outfit. You could’ve asked me to perform and BABYYYYY I would’ve given you Janet Jackson and Alvin Ailey in 6 8 counts. So yes, you did do that bad but use it as a learning experience and do better! Please remember the phrase: “Excuses are tools of the weak and incompetent. Used to build monuments of nothingness. Those who excel in it seldom excel in anything else but excuses.”
Wow! I’ve always said there’s reasons for people to be so defensive and closed in. No, that does NOT excuse or condone their actions but it definitely gives you more patience and reason for trying to understand them. I love Tami, we are close, and to find out this information hurts but also makes me angry. I wish I could just give her a hug because as you will see I’ve been very vocal to her this season but I don’t think for one time I actually asked her WHAT HAPPENED to make her so angry and flip out. So many of us have been through something similar to this in our lives and we still find a way to fall apart instead of coming together. I am here for you Tami, you know that and you know me. Please try to find your strength in those who truly care for you and maybe then you will learn how to overcome such a tremendous obstacle.
Lastly, I don’t want SoberLESS Suzie to overshadow a huge charity event shown on last night’s episode. She was not invited but apparently showed up to “support me.” I beg to differ because rather than deciding NOT TO DRINK at an event meant to honor those involved in Preserve Our Legacy, her uninvited ass found a way to become drunk and ignorant. But, I digress. Preserve Our Legacy is an organization used to increase the knowledge of minorities and getting them to become bone marrow and cord blood donors. Minorities make up less that 10% of the bank and we are losing our children every day. I became a part of this organization because I have a four year old, and after hearing about Jaden whom the organization pushed for Jaden’s Law and the Jaden Hilton Initiative I was brought to tears. Jaden was three years old and after just three years of laughter, smiles and then pain he lost his life.
As a parent I can’t imagine trying your hardest to save your child’s life but due to the lack of knowledge in our culture, their life is cut short and taken. Please take a moment to visit Preserveourlegacy.org for more information on becoming a donor or even possibly sponsoring an event in your town. We as a people have strength in numbers!!! It’s painless and it literally takes about 5-10 minutes out of your life to become register to SAVE A LIFE OF SOMEONE ELSE. What else could be more rewarding!
The surprise I was given last night was receiving Proclamation by the City of New York!
