After part one’s explosive “Basketball Wives Reunion” episode, I knew we would be IN FOR IT for round deux. Let’s discuss!
I don’t think I quite touched on it enough in my recap of part 1, but, umm, can we discuss Evelyn’s face?! Has Chad convinced Evelyn to drop a few pounds? She looks gaunt and orange and well, that make up was so heavy I kept checking under her eyes to make sure she hadn’t been in any altercation that would leave her with a black eye. Alas, I noticed no such thing but that make-up, that orange tan and the gauntness did throw me off guard. I usually don’t mind LOOKING at Evelyn, only listening to her. But during the reunion show, I had to check the color of my TV screen! Oh Evelyn, JUST STOP! EVERYTHING you are doing, just STOP! Please?
Ladies, how many of you are in your 30’s & 40’s and argue with your friends over twitter? Yeah, me either, and I’m in my 20’s! There is no reason we should even be discussing Jennifer’s pictures in the buff, but since Royce made the greatest point EVER (why is a married lady taking pictures of herself sans clothes to send to someone/ANYONE), let’s discuss John Salley’s reaction! Was it just me or did it seem like John was into Jennifer and wanted to believe the very best about her?
As for Jennifer not getting pregnant by Eric Williams, does he even have any money? My apartment in Brooklyn NY looked better then Jennifer’s “Miami” (was it really in Miami?) crib. Real Talk.
Okay, I’ll move on because this show takes so many twists and turns, I can’t touch on it all!
Ashley Walker’s appearance on the show? I’ll just say one word: LAME. She came on with pre-rehearsed words and stories and whatever. I’m over her. She’s a pretty girl but why even bring her on? Oh wait – Those shoes. I want. Now. But on this one, I have to agree with Evelyn (SHOCKER!) “Why is she even here”?
Next up, Suzie Kecham, whom is shown in the opening credits, yet had less screen time then Ashley Walker. Evelyn says she felt bad after watching the episode of her snapping on Suzie. No, she felt bad that people were attacking her on Twitter and calling her childish. If Evelyn TRULY forgave Suzie, she would befriend her. The crazy part? Evelyn HAS indeed said things behind Suzie’s back, so pot meet kettle.
As for the rest of the girls, Royce Reed & Tami Roman, thinking that Suzie also has “diarrhea of the mouth”, well, that was mostly caused by Royce. Indeed, Royce is an instigator whether she wants to admit it or not. Is she as bad as the devil in disguise (Shaunie O’neal – Executive Producer of Basketball Wives), No. In fact, for Shaunie to start a show like this, instigate arguments etc. I am just astounded that as a race of black people, we aren’t offended. As a black woman, I for one am disgusted with Shaunie. But alas, she’s getting paid!
The second half of the reunion show found the ladies reliving their hypocritical “behind the back” talking of Gloria Govan. Let me just say, Gloria looked STUNNING at the reunion. Red is DEFINITELY her color. The scene with Gloria and the ladies in the restaurant where Shaunie attacked Gloria? That was the nation’s first sight at Shaunie’s true colors. (If you have DVR, Pause it right after that scene is shown, Evelyn is FUMING, I mean FUMING so hard she looks like a man!) As if it is ANYONE’s business why Gloria and Matt Barnes did not get married. They could not stop talking about her, even after she moved away. THAT was my problem with Shaunie, Evelyn & Jennifer. And I won’t even touch on how Shaunie expected Gloria to choose her side over her sisters. It’s laughable really. Shaunie thinks her money makes people go crazy apparently. Blood is ALWAYS thicker then water. Always.
Line of the night? John Salley “A lot of ya’ll mentioned grown A** woman, but then you do teeny a** women sh*t”. Perfection. ‘Nuff said.
Once again, Tami came off looking like a class act, and most of all, REAL. She is the only one of these ladies that I’d be willing to bet didn’t get prepped by her agent with notes of what topics to discuss before going on the show. I would love to see a show focused on Tami getting her groove back, and see some more of her cute kids! THAT would be an uplifting show to watch!
As for Evelyn saying she wants to eventually be friends with Tami? Yeah, cause you don’t want her to whoop that a**! She can pop off at the mouth to Royce but she won’t do it to Tami again! And were these ladies really arguing about who can kick their legs up to their ear? STILL looking for a man. Help us all. Keep your legs closed. Thank you.
So, in closing, I want to know what you all think of the final part of the reunion show? Did you enjoy any parts of it? Who is your favorite lady? What did you think of their fashion choices? Gloria’s impersonation of Shaunie? Fill me in below, I need a chuckle!
