When part 1 of the Basketball Wives reunion began and I saw John Salley as the host, I smiled. He wasn’t going to let these ladies act a fool! (or was he?)
Of course one of the first questions posed was for Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman. When Evelyn first started to speak it ALMOST sounded like she wanted to apologize to Tami. Had Evelyn learned from her past mistakes? UM, NO!
Cue the siren, it was about to pop off. Once again she comes sideways out of her mouth just like she did when she said “non factor b*tch”. She can’t get it together! Once Evelyn feels the heat from the crowd coming down on her, she makes sure to snap back at ALL of the girls in a way that just made her look more stupid.
We then have the obligatory “Shaunie O’Neal Plug”. Being she is an Executive Producer of the show, I’m sure she writes her own questions for the host as well as let’s them know what kind of piece she wants shown of her. The “mom” scene? Aww how sweet and what a great way to paint yourself in a pretty nice little light instead of the instigating self-absorbed hustler you are. Hey, I’m not hatin, get your money! Even if it is at the expense of every other woman sitting on stage with you! They signed a deal with a devil to be famous, congrats ladies!
I must say, I understand the need to show previous clips of the show but did they have to show them for EVERY scenario before EVERY question? I’d much rather them just bring the situation up and then have the
animals ladies comment on it. How many people actually watch the reunion show without having watched the season?!
The scenes I don’t mind seeing again? Anything between Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada! First of all, Tami is HILARIOUS. “OOh, I didn’t know I was having dinner with Jennifer Trump”! Ha!!! On another note, I would just like to state for the record that I actually remember watching Tami’s season of the Real World. I remember disliking her for many reasons but the main one being how she got David kicked off after laughing and giggling. Needless to say, I give second chances to those deserving and she was a young twenty-something back then. She is now a grown woman and a MOTHER. She has changed and I can dig it.
Tami truly came out of this reunion episode looking like a rock-star! Which says a lot about how Shaunie feels about her vs. Evelyn.
Sidebar: Does anyone else think that Royce looks like a short tiny version of Janet Jackson? Am I alone here? If you agree, please comment below because it would mean the world to me to know I’m not alone here…yes, it’s the small things!
On another note, Eric Williams taped video message to Jennifer was so telling. But I do find that bump on his forehead to be quite distracting, anyone else? I mean seriously, Jennifer Williams is a bad b*tch, her clothes are laid, she has her hustle on and is in it to win it. Unfortunately, her attitude will take her nowhere fast. If I was a psychic, I’d predict a very sad life for her in the future. I would hope not, but at the end of the day, if you lay down in bed with dogs, for the money and fame, you’re going to catch fleas. Congrats.
Of course, the show focused mainly on Evelyn (more then a few times), the thing about Evelyn is, she lives for the hate. It’s like her fuel to wake up in the morning. Any broad who tweets “I’m no rabbit but 10 carats look good on me! Let the hating begin!” is a broad who strictly wants to be known for her bougieness. Unfortunately for her, with that overly orange tan and botox face, the only thing she is known for is being a groupie. =( Sad. The thing is, people who come from nothing sometimes think it’s a “good look” to act haughty and holier than thou, to make fun of people they deem as below them. The sad fact is, the money can’t make you. On the inside she is rotten to the core.
Is she going to be leaving the show and starting her own with Ochocinco? Who knows, who cares. These two media-whores (I mean seriously, changing your name to Ochocinco?! Really?!) deserve each other. If they have a show come out, I for sure won’t be watching. The scene of them on the couch with Evelyn in lingerie literally made me spit up my cheerios. Seriously. It was like Chad was making out with his mother!
Isn’t Evelyn in her 40’s? She looks like she is definitely at the very least 43, she has an 18 year old daughter, Shaniece (pictured above), after-all. I know she is claiming to only be 35 but I find that hard to believe with all the work she’s had done. I’m jus’ sayin…
Overall this first part of the Basketball Wives Reunion show left a lot to be desired. The only two women that acted like real ladies were Shaunie and Tami! Shocker! I knew Tami would but Shaunie had already laid the ground work for arguments with her instigating so…the question is, will part 2 be wilder and crazier? Will Suzie appear and shut all these ladies up? Or will she run scared? I can’t wait to see Gloria snap on Shaunie!
Let me know what YOU think of these ladies and the Reunion episode below! Are you Team Tami or Team Evelyn?
One last note, who did Evelyn’s make up?! It looked HORRIBLE!!!!!! Co-signers?
