After a year-long wait, Basketball Wives Season 5 returned this week. In a drastic comparison to other seasons, the tone of the premiere episode was more solemn as it focused on Evelyn’s recovery from the altercation and subsequent breakup with her husband, Chad “Ochocino” Johnson. As a new season begins with drama, another series comes to a dramatic close. On the season finale of Couples Therapy, Joe and Abbey decide to leave the house after the fight with Heather and Dustin. Meanwhile the other couples focus on completing the process and reflecting on their journey.
Basketball Wives and Couples Therapy weren’t the only shows that showed an emotional side this week. On Hollywood Exes Drea opened up to Sheree about the guilt she had been feeling as a mother while on Marrying The Game Tiffney decided to return her engagement ring back to The Game, leaving us to question where their relationship now stands. This week VH1’s primetime line-up was an emotional rollercoaster, but which show still has you strapped in? Check out our favorite moments from this past week.
Basketball Wives: Should Evelyn Give Chad A Second Chance?
The majority of the season five premiere episode focused on Evelyn’s slow emotional recovery from the violent incident with Chad. While out to dinner with Shaunie, Tami, and Suzie, Evelyn opens up to the girls about what happened and how she is healing. In a surprising turn of events, Tami becomes very vocal about Evelyn giving her relationship with Chad another try. Tami tells Evelyn that every person deserves a second chance and that she and Chad need to work on their relationship together as a couple. Considering Tami’s strong independent personality, we were slightly surprised by her opinion.
