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.
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.
First things first…HOW OLD ARE WE? No, seriously…I’m not saying I’m perfect but even I (the one who cries in the park with her father) didn’t find it funny to put dead fish in someone’s room. One could understand (kinda) if we were in high school, even college, to hide eggs in someone’s locker or dorm room as a ritual for a freshman or neophyte member of the cheerleading squad or dance team. But to take chum into a five-star RESORT bungalow and hide it in places even the housekeepers wouldn’t be able to clean is ignorant and disrespectful. Not disrespectful to Kenya alone but to the island as well as the resort. It was tasteless and nothing anyone can say will make that situation “funny” or okay. My father owns and runs a travel agency, and when he saw that, he was embarrassed. I’m just thinking about how much money was spent on that cleanup and not one of them gave a damn because it wasn’t on their dime. Some things aren’t meant to leave the movies. Some things aren’t meant to be done in real life. But I digress because maybe my sense of humor is different than theirs or maybe I just simply grew up in that part of life. Maybe it’s just me but if you were THAT BORED in TAHITI…yes TAHITI, then maybe you should’ve gone in your bungalow on the ocean and read a book like Kenya was doing before she admitted to y’all she was low-key crazy… :shoulder shrug: (Sidebar: I am shocked she didn’t notice the stench, or maybe she just thought it was supposed to smell like that.)
Secondly…what happened to the friend code? Evelyn, I understand you being hurt…really, I do…But, how do you sit on a boat and express how you’ve never dished any of Jenn’s business because you have loyalty, then question hers? I’m sure you see where I’m going with this. At no point has Jenn ever aired your dirty laundry specifically. Sure, she’s mentioned she knows a lot but has never said anything. It’s disturbing how you all can be “friends” for so long, then you mention how fake she is, that’s she’s basically “loose” <-(using Kenya's term since it sounds better) and then state specific incidents. I haven't known either of these women beyond 2.5 years so I cant say how deep their friendship was but I will be DAMNED if I ever air any of my friends or former friends BIZ-NESS...especially when cameras are rolling. Word of advice. If you ever have hopes of mending a broken friendship, divulging information given to you in confidence because you're angry doesn't make the situation better...it makes it worse and it also makes your CURRENT FRIENDS question ANYTHING they ever tell you in the future. For future reference here's a quick definition of the friend code I found...I kinda thought it was common sense, but common sense isn't so common anymore:
Best Friend Code
Used when talking to your best friend. When this code is enforced it keeps the knowledge from going to a third party.
Best Friend Code can be enforced in any of this situations(since people can barely keep there mouths shut now days)
i.e. dishing on boyfriends, talking about other disliked friends, talking about your best friends slut of a girlfriend….
Lastly, being the youngest in the cast, even I knew not to take my a** overseas for a drama retreat when it seemed as if the only purpose was to pour salt on open wounds. It would be different if it was a true retreat to bond and get to know each other better. It would be different if it was to genuinely mend broken friendships. If would even be different if all members of this cast could come together and coexist. It would be different if we could debate and discuss our differences then agree to disagree if we didn’t come to a common ground. But instead it seems as if it was a moment to scream, yell, play pranks, cry, and see who could stay on the in the beautiful island of Tahiti the longest like they’re on the Bad Girls Club (over 30 edition). I’m outtie!!!
