Royce Reed Recaps Basketball Wives Episode 9: If You Wanted Your Key, Just Ask For It

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.


I have to be honest. I’ve watched the show three times and I’m still lost on what was really was going and what happened. I guess it basically all lead up to Jenn getting slapped in the face over a key at the race track while promoting Think Like A Man, while Kenya was absent and I was on cloud nine with my man. Is that about it? Ok till next week…I’m Outtie!

Ok, I’m back…VH1 told me my blog couldn’t be five sentences…With that said…

I’m still questioning why they keep having conversations about Jenn and her new friends, old friends, fake friends, her changing, etc. Nia, if you wanted your key, just ask for it. Better yet, change the locks! That easy! If Jenn doesn’t want to be your friend…so what. I will say this though…Jenn, you really need some boxing lessons. I’ll be DAMNED if a chick WALKS over to me and SLAPS ME IN MY FACE! “IN MY MOFO FACE?” (Kevin Hart voice.) I would’ve turned CERTIFIED PSYCHO. That’s the moment you wipe the floor with someone in self-defense, THEN press charges! Jenn, Steve Harvey said it years ago…you don’t tell someone “I wish you would” when you’re not a fighter. That’s a dare and she gave you truth!

She Said/She Said: Evelyn And Jennifer Talk About That Slap On 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 is (rightfully) upset about being slapped, but opens up the question about whether or not violence is really satisfying entertainment. Evelyn‘s take is more about the feeling of betrayal by her friend. As always, let us know what you think in the comments!

From Jenifer’s blog:

I’m just wondering- did tonight’s episode satisfy your viewing pleasure? How many people watched my show tonight and actually felt good about it? Did it make you feel proud to be a woman? My last question – would you have enjoyed it the same if it was your mother, sister or daughter getting slapped?

Tough Talk With Steve Ward: The Phonies And The Favorites

Master Matchmaker Steve Ward is back for another season of Tough Love, and each week, he’ll be giving us an exclusive look at what went down behind the scenes on the series. After episode one, we spoke to Steve to get a little bit more insight on all the ladies, so read our interview to find out what Steve really thinks of all the ladies in the Tough Love mansion this season.

Let’s start our chat talking about Melissa, because so far she’s my favorite, I can relate to her dorkiness. Maybe not quite to the extent that she takes it to.

Steve: Wait till you see some later episodes. Some of the crew came to me to say “Is she acting?” and we thought to ourselves that there was no way this girl could be this awkward, and once she really started breaking down and crying, we realized this was not an act. That’s just how bad it was. She’s not a virgin by choice, she wants to find a guy to sleep with who will agree not to sleep with other women. That’s not too much to ask. But we felt that she had more depth than just the virgin thing, her social awkwardness is the problem. She’s a sweetheart though.

I got a good first impression from Danielle too, but her problem is basically that she chooses to date dirtbags, right?

That’s her entire problem. She could be respectable and have higher standards if she simply chose to. What you’ll find out about her is that she’s repeating a pattern that’s been going on in her life since she was a little girl.

Tough Love New Orleans – Episode 1 – The Vergina Whisperer

Tough Love has returned for another season in yet another warm weather locale, and yet despite all the lessons that Steve and JoAnn Ward have taught on previous seasons, the ladies of America are still in a hopeless place. Wait, I wonder if Steve and JoAnn have ever considered using Rihanna‘s song as their anthem, because it just dawned on me that they’re helping people find love in a hopeless place…ANYWAY. Welcome to New Orleans, and welcome to this wonderful world of women who for one reason or another just can’t get their s— together and desperately need the help of a vagina whisperer. Steve, you okay if I use that as your nickname from now on?
