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.
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.

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.

She Said/She Said: Jennifer And Evelyn Trade Off-Camera Jabs In Their Blogs


Each week on this season of Basketball Wives, we’ve been doing our best to keep up with the recaps and blog posts the cast of the show has been writing to give their side of what’s really going down. This week, Jennifer continues to be at peace with her life and chooses to take the zen road…mostly. And Evelyn keeps it 100 and gives us some behind the scenes insider info about what she thinks of Jen’s friendships.

Jennifer writes:

I honestly don’t understand how my cast mates find the energy to breathe after a day of so much hate towards each other. I decided to apologize to Royce because it was the right thing to do. After all, she didn’t sleep with my husband or do anything to physically harm me so the line of no return hasn’t been crossed.

Submit Your Questions Now For A Chance To Have Them Discussed At The Basketball Wives Reunion


Hard to believe that it’s almost time to shoot the Basketball Wives‘ fourth reunion show, but filming this season wrapped recently and the ladies will soon sit down once again for a chance to get any lingering issues off their chest and address their personal beefs with one another.

This season, the stakes were upped significantly with the number of internal conflicts among the women (Kesha Vs. Kenya, Tami Vs. Kesha, Kenya Vs. Evelyn, Jennifer Vs. Evelyn…need we go on?), not to mention the personal issues everyone was dealing with, from Tami’s anger management (as well as her recent health concerns), Evelyn and Chad’s wedding planning, and everyone’s new business ventures and career moves. With so much to discuss, we’re going to need some help, so if you have any questions for the ladies, now’s your chance to submit them.

Send any questions you might have for the ladies here, and it may just be asked when the reunion show airs.
