The Reunion Interview: Kenya Bell Will Show You Crazy

Kenya Bell Basketball Wives Reunion
Kenya Bell laughs heartily (and maybe evilly?) when we talk about her reputation as the crazy one on Basketball Wives this season. Because the funny thing is, when she’s in regular, unprovoked Kenya mode, she doesn’t even give a hint of crazy, she’s just wants to laugh everything off. Though we’ve seen her get heated with Kesha and Evelyn this season, she was never in an actual brawl herself (though she admits she wanted to go back for Evelyn after that bottle was thrown), and it’s hard to imagine what would happen if she actually let “the dragon” out.

During our chat at the Basketball Wives reunion, we also talked about that seemingly never-ending fish prank too. Yes, she smelled it. No, she didn’t know the girls were behind it. I’ll let her explain.

Congratulations on surviving your first season!

[Laughs] It really did feel like Survivor! I won!

How did you feel when you wrapped filming?

I was happy it was over. To be honest with you it was a long, tough season with a lot of cat fights, a lot of drama, and I really did feel like I made it through.

Do you think this season of the show was more crazy than past seasons, from what you knew of them?

This season was definitely more over the top than past seasons, I think that there was a lot of drama everywhere, between a lot of the girls, and it wasn’t resolved for the most part. It just continued on. And it’s still not resolved.

Single Ladies Star D.B. Woodside Compares Malcolm And Keisha To A Modern-Day Romeo And Juliet

“Like most fans, I, too, want to see them wind up together in whatever their version of happily ever after would be, but…it’s gonna be a while,” D.B. Woodside says in this exclusive clip from the Single Ladies set, talking about his onscreen romance with Keisha, played by LisaRaye McCoy. Woodside plays Malcolm who, among other things, has been caught giving money to his ex-wife and helping her escape prosecution, hiding out from the FBI himself, and not informing Keisha of his whereabouts. And still, we root for him and can’t get over all that sexy. Woodside explains that even though he’s far from the character, he roots for him and feels a connection. “He’s a good guy who has a good heart [and] a little bit of a shady past.”

Single Ladies airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The Mob Wives Chicago Profile: Christina Scoleri Is A Fighter


“I wanna get the story out there,” Christina Scoleri explains when she’s asked why she joined the cast of Mob Wives Chicago. And she definitely has a story to tell. With a dad who was “connected” and arrested over twenty times, she’s intimately familiar with the lifestyle, but she’s endured some of her own trials and…trivulations, too. She’s divorced but still living with her ex, and raising her daughter, and just fighting (figuratively and sometimes literally) to survive. Doing this show, she says, “Is therapy for me.”
