VH1 caught up with former Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams at the premiere party for our new reality series, The Gossip Game, a buzzworthy new title under the Mona Scott-Young (Love And Hip Hop, The Gossip Game) umbrella. Well hey there, Jenn! Long time no see…
It came as a shock to many when word got out that Jenn wouldn’t return to the fifth season of Basketball Wives. Arguably the only “real” Basketball Wife, many revered Jenn for her class and maturity on screen. When asked about her departure she simply stated, “It wasn’t for me anymore.” But does that mean she’s over television, too? Lucky for us, Jenn revealed she’s in talks with Scott-Young to create a reality show of her own, embodying the philosophy that when one door closes, another surely opens. A glimpse into her new business ventures with Lucid Cosmetics, or her relationship with new boo Cisco Rosado (who happens to be the founder of CMG entertainment) could work, especially if we see another side of Jenn– the “real” her, and we aren’t talking about Drake songs.
And for those of you who are wondering if Jenn and her former costar, Evelyn Lozada, ever became friends again… Jenn uttered not a single word when asked about their onscreen quarrel. But there was a look! And that look read “Hell to the no.” So much for the minor make-up at the Season Four reunion! We might never get to the bottom of that one, but Jenn seems to have no worries of late, hitting the town in good spirits and looking fab while doing so.
