Basketball Wives LA

Recommended Posts

Jennifer was awfully messy. There is no way around that. But, I feel like the finale gave Shaunie, Evelyn, and Tami a pass on their messiness. It feels like they all refuse to acknowledge just how awful they were to Jennifer in her last season of Miami. 

The things that Shaunie said that Jennifer said were the kind of things that someone would say about someone who had a falling out with a friend. Jennifer saying that Shaniece was writing out the checks for the bills because her mom was out running the streets, just sounds like the true life of a kid who grew up with a teenage mom. There is nothing terrible about that because it is simply what happens. 

The stuff that Jennifer told Malaysia is completely different. She had no business talking about Shaniece and whether or not she was having underage sex, she certainly had no business calling someone she's known since she was 6 a build-a-whore. Especially, with the intent that it would somehow make it on the show. That is beyond the line. No matter what kind of falling out she and Evelyn had, Shaniece should have been off limits. 

But the thing is how all of this came out. Jennifer talking shit about Evelyn as a parent makes sense. And even if Jennifer had the intention of having Evelyn's parenting brought out on the show, it would be petty, but again consider that Evelyn and Shaunie brought a non-cast member onto the show to physically attack Jennifer since they knew there would be legal ramifications if Evelyn had done so. That is a lowdown and planned assault. So, I could see how that would burn Jen up to the point that she would want to hurt Evelyn. But, once they made up and said everything they said about each other was in the past, Tami should have kept her mouth shut. 

I'm about to dive into the reunion, but before that one thing has been bugging me about Kristen's bid for relevance by throwing CeCe under the bus: She said that they live just down the street from Byron and CeCe and they've never been over to see her daughter. If that is the case, why hasn't Kristen or Byron's son ever taken her to see them? Since Byron is related to their daughter by blood, why have never gone directly to him to say "what's up?" why is it up to CeCe to answer for something like that and not Byron? Kristen just seems like a shady opportunist to me.

CeCe got caught being a lying liar that lies at the end of that reunion she kept blaming Byron saying he wanted her to tell them that he didn't want anything to do with them when it comes out that he didn't tell her to say anything she is the one that took it on herself (Girl if you aint married to the man and they aint your children dont start relaying messages ) and didn't own that and for CeCe throwing Kristin under the bus saying that Kristin never said it was a joke the whole happy ending thing ...girl pulled a real housewives move and whipped out the printed text messages I died :)

I haven't gotten there yet. But, it still doesn't explain why Kristen didn't just go straight to Byron when she felt some type of way about him not seeing his granddaughter. It seems to me if that hurt her as much as she claimed, she or her husband would have said something to him CeCe or no CeCe. Because if I felt like my in-laws weren't making an effort to see their grandchildren, I would go straight to the source to find out what is going on. Unless they address that too and I just haven't gotten to that part. 

 

Edited: I have the reunion on pause because my connection is slow, but I have to ask about the bold part above. If Kristen told her it was a joke, why was she so adamant about CeCe confronting Jen and Ev about it? Why did she then get mad that CeCe wasn't standing up for herself about that whole thing, if she said from the beginning that it was a joke? I'm sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for my internet to catch up so I have to know what the reason for the shit stirring was to begin with if she made it clear it was a joke.

Because CeCe was going off on how they are just a bunch of women who do nothing (which is a lie just because they dont have the same 9-5 she does doesn't mean their work is any less stressful or valid) she was talking shit behind their back the same way she was accusing them of talking about her so Kristin was saying say it to them let them know how you feel dont talk about them behind their back dont be a hypocrite basically

Wow. I watch embarrassing amounts of reality TV and that was...surprising. Fascinating, though. Felt real, too.

Did Jennifer ever deny saying anything in general? It seemed to me like she never answered the "did you say anything" question, like she only denied specifics. She's a terrible liar. 

Jennifer didn't even answer the sae question that was posed over and over

Evelyn: Did you say stuff about my daughter

Jennifer: I love your daughter

I read on Twitter that this show will be announced March or April. There was an article on Deadline a few months back saying that Shed Media had been tired and they were looking for a new production team to take the show in a new direction. As a result I’ve been curious about the new season, but not much has leaked in terms of what to expect. 

From what I’ve seen on Twitter it looks like the cast is mostly the same, including CeCe, Kristen and OG returning. There are rumors of Jen filming (which I can’t imagine the purpose of) and also Tami has filmed but of course we don’t know the extent. I will say I’m happy if all three newbies return, hopefully in full time roles. Last season was the first in years where they had a solid cast and storylines the entire season. Usually they start with a random cast, dump the newbies mid season and start fresh which is tiresome. Consistency in the cast makes it easier to be invested. Also having the newbies connected to Malaysia in a real way gives it a more housewives feel which I like.

I had no idea this show was coming back on. I couldn't follow some of the drama, because I don't remember what happened last season. There was a lot of runtelldat &/or kissing Shaunie's ass. Meh.

I usually love Jennifer's hair/makeup/clothes, but she had a few mis-steps this episode. That silver sequin track suit, no ma'am. & I wasn't thrilled w/ the long braid in her talking head.

Basically I feel like Shaunie's son looked the entire episode--- slightly bored & indifferent.

I watched as well. I see they finally gave Shaunie a feud/something to do. She never has anything going on; at least nothing they discuss on camera. Them escorting her out while she yelled at air ... sure Jane.

I'm amazed that the show think Tami's popularity warrants her making a cameo appearance at every event. Either show up fight and earn ya check or move on from the show LOL.  I'm also going to need her to stop wearing these Grandma Doctor's Appointment wigs

Oh my goodness I can not stand Kristin (?? I think that's her name?)  Based on the shit she pulled last season and now this season, I think she never really liked CiCi, but played nice because of her husband and his dad.  I also think she convinced CiCi to be on the show, but told the producers she had beef she wanted to air, which is why CiCi always looks blindsided.  Lots of theories going on here, but I've thought this since last season.  I was also eye-rolling her when she said Byron has never had an issue with her.  So does she not think calling him a dead-beat grandfather on national ( for the 9 of us watching) TV was a problem?!?!  There's just something about her that comes across as uber-fake, which is not unusual for ladies in this group.  Especially the way she just had to tell Shaunie at her "my son's recovering from heart surgery" party the shit that Jennifer said, but prefaced with an "I'm trying so hard to squeeze out tears because what she said was so fucked up" face.  I see you girl, and it's not a good look.

Aw Doug is so sweet bringing Jackie flowers.  #freedougchristie!

So Tami get's that dressed up to show up to a party for less than 5 minutes?  Okay.  At least she's doing the minimum to fulfill her contract obligations.  

Why did Jennifer show up at the party looking smug?

I enjoyed the premiere but have some problems. The past few seasons it's usually the main cast, a couple newbies then midseason they dump those failed newbies and introduce additional newbies. I felt like last season was the first in a long time where they introduced newbies that actually fit and they stayed all season. I'm happy Cece, OG and Kristen all returned, but I don't think they needed Tami who clearly doesn't want to be there. I also was stunned that Jennifer returned considering how she ended things, but I guess I can understand due to the potential drama. I'm still stunned she's back though.

Cece was my favorite of the newbies last year. She felt real and was a nice person and actually had her own business and money which was nice. I feel the ladies were hard on her, but she held her own in her own way. Kristen constantly threw her under the bus (obviously to social climb) so it doesn't surprise me to see her not wanting anything to do with her still. I thought Kristen would be my favorite last season, but she has turned into a messy, vapid mean girl. All in all this story is the most interesting to me, followed by Shaunie, Evelyn and Jennifer's mess. Doesn't look like Jackie or Malaysia have a story so I'm interested in seeing what they do.

I did, it was one episode short and sweet. Reggie proposed and they immediately went to Vegas and got married, End of spin-off

Am I the only one left watching this show?

Tami looks more sickly than usual.

Can't believe Jackie is coming across as the sanest of them all

Evelyn had a point about Jennifer - she said all of these things about Shaq and Evelyn's daughter before her mom passed.

I don't understand what it was that CiCi told OG - was it that Byron is not the biological dad to Kristen's husband? Is this something that wasn't publicly known? I don't understand why this is a taboo subject

I haven't watched the episode yet, & I don't get why an adoption would be taboo either. But, I feel like we're getting closer to understanding the animosity between father & son & their wives. These articles are brief, the comments are much more thought provoking:

Jackie is so annoying, she will go-along-to-get-along in the moment and then however many days later, will decide that what someone said made her mad.

Not a fan of Evelyn this year or her Cardi-wanna-B friend but if wanna-B is coming for awful OG, I’m all for it. CeCe comes across like she is desperate to marry Byron, at all costs.

Shareef’s hand was shaking uncontrollably in several shots when he’s helping Shaunie unpack at the new house, is that somehow related to his heart issue?

Tami knows she’s a damn lie — no way in hell did she think bringing all the women together to discuss their issues would bring about peace.

Trying to catch up on this season.

Tami looks soo good with the short, curly 'do. Visually, I'm tired of wigs & weaves; once you see them, you cannot unsee them.

Wow, Malaysia is the voice of reason. With all the artifice, you expect her to be shallow, but she really facilitated the conversation between Kristen & Cece & London. Basically, Byron Scott created all this drama for some unknown reason & left the women to deal w/ the fallout. 

They're trying to introduce some new girls. Meh. They're alright. At least these new relationships seem organic.

Byron Scott's house looked surprisingly small. Nice, but small. Nothing wrong w/ that, I guess I just expected these harpies to be fighting over more money. His point-of-view is that Kristen has never attempted to bring the grandchild over, but she's accusing him of being uninvolved. Ok... but, never talk to her again in life over that? Petty. He's as much a drama queen as everybody else on this show.

Re: the Jennifer-Evelyn-Shaunie drama. I feel like Evelyn is hating on Jennifer to stay in Shaunie's good graces. Jennifer shut that door tho, didn't she!? Lol. Damn.

Was this really only episode #2?! I'm exhausted.

Episode #3. Damn. The show gave short shrift to Kenny Anderson's stroke, didn't they? Blind in one eye, learning how to walk again--- that's some serious shit! Meanwhile, there would be no show w/out any of these women's exes. The "sisterhood" is real weak, shallow & fake. I agree w/ Tami, it was tacky of Shaunie & Jackie to order entrees before she arrived. Even if she was late, just get some drinks & appetizers & have a place setting for her.

Malaysia is sweet & she's a great moderator for all the drama, yet again. She could host the reunion show. Malaysia seems to understand all the details of the show's dramas in a way that escapes me. I like her! (On a shallow note: her glam could be upgraded, last episode she was obviously missing an entire nail & I just find it a lil low budget overall. Do better, show.)

I think Evelyn's CBD cream is a cool idea. (Off topic: my beloved Auntie had a total knee replacement. Very painful recovery. The prescription meds wore off so fast, I was worried about addiction. She found relief w/ CBD cream. She swears by it!)

Awww... Tami's conversation w/ her daughter about smoking. I'm completely sympathetic. It is a real addiction. I think one problem is: if people put pressure on you to quit, it makes it harder to quit. Because people smoke in response to stress, & also habit. It's interesting tho because I don't believe Tami Roman is the only smoker on this or other reality shows, most folks just don't show it on camera. IJS. IMO, the hypnotism was a fail & Tami herself is not yet committed to not smoking. 

Ok. OG's tiny, baby ponytail on the top of her wig tho. Why, Lawd, WHY!? & the baby hairs, too? Fix it Jesus!

Kristen & Cece doing better since the Malaysia intervention. Nice. But is Kristen's cancer walk really the same time of day as Cece's engagement party? Hm. It would be nice if Kristen can be there for Cece going forward w/ finding out about her uterine mass.

I don't get OG's beef w/ Kristen at all. Malaysia? Malaysia! Please translate, even though I kinda don't really care.
