Royce Reed Recaps Basketball Wives Episode 8: Why Is It Cool To “Catch A Case” Or Be “About This Life”?


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.

Let me first start off by saying I find it quite flattering my other cast members are blogging. I say that because I seem to remember a lot of SHADE coming my way for 1. Having a Twitter and 2. Blogging. Now, they have more tweets and followers than I do and have opened their own blogs. I just want to say you’re welcome although you’ll never say thank you for bringing forth the idea. Moving on…

I said it last week and I was right. Instead of expressing how WRONG Evelyn was for throwing a bottle and a plate at someone’s head for a “word” there was a lot of laughing. Even more so, they condoned her actions. I’m confused…how are you speaking about someone else being crazy (although I think Kenya has a “side”) when you are always the one picking up glasses, bottles, plates, jumping across tables, etc. Pot MEET Kettle. Tami and Shaunie, you both knew Evelyn was wrong so rather than saying “Evelyn you would’ve killed that girl,” hence hyping Evelyn up, it should’ve been “You were dead ass wrong and you need to learn how to curb your anger and deal with things differently.” I love you Tami and I know you are upset with me, but at this point I don’t think you understand the fact I AM a real friend to you. No way would I let you react the way Evelyn has in my presence, nor would I condone it if I was or wasn’t there just to cosign for you. I would expect the same from you to me. THAT’S REAL! Right Wrong Bougie Bitch, I want my REAL friend/s to tell me what it really is. Why is it cool to “catch a case” or be “sbout this life” at 35+, or any age for that matter? Sitting behind bars isn’t cute and the same people cosigning you on Twitter saying “Thats my B!tch” are the same ones that will forget you exist the moment the commercials come on. Sidenote…I would’ve put my money on Kenya if they put y’all in a ring. She doesn’t have to “Talk about it,” I believe her eyes.

As far as Jen and I go, our so-called issue could’ve been squashed a year ago. I never said anything about her pertaining to her photos on my twitter. Have I expressed my opinions about her since all the extended drama yes but that wasn’t the issue. The issue was the day her photos came out she “heard” I was tweeting about her but never saw it. She then called me and expressed the same in a loud and disrespectful manner. After that was the reunion in which she still couldn’t elucidate what I supposedly said and neither could her former sidekick. I never had an issue with Jen. I always said she was cool when she was away from Evelyn…I still believe that. Are we “friends” now. No, but we are cool. It takes a lot for me to call someone my friend but I’m open to seeing what builds with Jenn and I. I’m not naive but I’m also not evil…

Kenya’s video…Like I said it wasn’t THAT BAD but speaking on the genre I know about, the dancing needed/needs to be done over. If you watch the entire video, in my opinion the dancing was sloppy. I’m not Debbie Allen but I know choreography, cleanliness, and talent. Kenya CAN SING. Kenya CAN NOT DANCE…well. Just because you’ve been dancing all your life in your mirror doesn’t mean you are trained.

I wasn’t trying to bully her, I was speaking my opinion the best way I knew how pertaining to dance. As far as me feeling like she’s becoming Jen, I do believe that. She is not the same Kenya I met. After watching the scene however, I do realize it came across as a bash Kenya moment and that wasn’t my intent so I will apologize for being a part of that but not for what I said. It could’ve been said and done differently. I applaud her for trying and I really hope she listens more because she does have talent…just not thru dance.

It’s hard to talk about Tami’s issue without getting teary eyed. I too was raped but I dealt with my situation differently. Instead of reacting in an angry way I became clingy. My point is not everyone deals with their situation the same way so I can’t judge. I went thru the stage of just wanting a hug and at times I still feel that way when it comes to my father. Granted we always ate dinner together as a family (Mom, Dad, brother and I) and always said “I Love You” but my mom was the comfort and my dad was the tough love. Sometimes being a young woman you just need that extra push, that one hug, that one “you’re good enough” to get you through a rough patch in your life. I think that’s why I don’t like to serial date or be alone. I like to be with one person at a time. I date with a preface of if I can see myself being with this person for the rest of my life, not just to “put myself out there and meet people”. I can do it but I prefer not to. I’m that girl that locks her doors immediately and keeps the alarm on all day. My situation made me fearful and clingy, Tami’s made her the opposite. To Tami, we never spoke about it but whenever you decide to get over your issue with me I am here to talk to. I’ve been there and sometimes it helps to speak to someone whose been through it.
I’m Outtie!!!
