Amid all the bickering and cat-fighting during the filming of season 4, fans and critics alike were treated to the tasteless behavior of Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada. After major sponsors pulled the rug out from out under their Louboutin feet and reminded them who’s really holding the purse, did the world stop and take notice that enough was entirely too much.
Tami announced this past week on The Wendy Williams show that season 5 was already green lit for another round. Rumors also began circulating that the show would be geared into a more positive light. Good or Bad idea?
So how will VH1 and Shaunie O’Neal manage to appeal to and keep viewers next season? While I’m no Einstein I’m usually good at knowing what works and if they wanna keep the show from flopping into oblivion than they had better beef up the storylines to keep people entertained.

I’m proud of Tami Roman for standing up and admitting her unruly behavior on The Wendy Williams Show yesterday. It’s not easy to admit a mistake especially when the whole ordeal played on tv but kudos to Tami for writing her wrong and moving forward. Tami got a little emotional during part of the segment and explained how her daughters were embarrassed about the ‘purse snatching incident’ on Basketball Wives.
From the conversation it seems as though season 5 is a go (despite rumors of being cancelled) and Tami promises a more toned down version unlike what we have been accustomed to (at least from her character).. The entire interview was really upbeat and refreshing. Thankfully the old Wendy from her radio days didn’t magically appear or she may have snatched the yaki from her scalp. Everyone knows Wendy had a reputation of going in on her guest and I’m sure she would have eaten Tami alive. Peep the entire video/interview below…

Even though Meeka Claxton only appeared on one season of Basketball Wives her lasting impression will forever be etched in stone. She too had felt the holy wrath of Tami Roman during a altercation on a out of town voyage sponsored by Shaunie O’Neal of course. After virtually disappearing from reality tv all together Meeka is speaking out via her blog on the growing violence on Basketball Wives and the lack of support she experience after the show ended.
Via Meeka’s blog:
“Meeka the violence on reality television has to stop!” “Meeka, I’m so glad you left that show!” “Meeka, I hate how reality TV is portraying black women!” “Meeka, can you believe the way grown women are acting?” “Meeka, those girls are bullies with serious issues” “Meeka, I stopped watching that show because the violence is disgusting!!”…
……These are some of my actual twitter mentions. For the last 3 months, my twitter has been flooded with these comments and hundreds more exactly like them. I said it on the reunion and I will say it again, I’m 32, a CEO, a wife and a mommy, I did not sign up for Bad Girls Club. As a mom, I am my daughters’ FIRST role model and as a black woman who has been given a platform, I have a responsibility to show young girls “better”.

First and foremost you were the entire reason I started watching Basketball Wives In the 1st place. After years of leaving reality tv a familiar face had returned to add a little spice and give real life accounts on what it meant to be a “Real” basketball wife. From the gate you were the most hated and the girls had a field day snatching and flipping your wig. They made fun of you collecting public assistance and even your right hand girl set up a dinner just so you could get drunk and find out a groupie had been sleeping with your husband while you were married.
Seriously you didn’t consider these to be real friends did you?

Fans of the popular reality show ‘Khloé and Lamar better get their last due fixings because according to the couple they are making their 2nd season their last….Apparently after a stalled NBA career as of late, Lamar Odom wants to focus more on his career and less on reality dollars…
According to TMZ, Lamar is determined to make a comeback — and he feels he should focus on only one project. Lamar will be living in L.A. full-time and he’s hired trainers to help him get his game back.
According to sources, Khloe and Lamar WILL make occasional appearances on the reality mother ship,“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” — but that’s it.
I actually like Lamar and Khloe as a couple and they seem to be a lot more entertaining than those other siblings…
So speaking of reality shows and departures another not so popular reality vixen may be headed out the door and not on her own free will…..
Check out what has producers of VH1′s Basketball Wives all in a uproar…

Don’t Call It A Comeback…… At least until we meet in court!
Following behind Evelyn Lozada may get you some tv time but for Nia Crooks I hope that pay-per-appearance check from Vh1 is enough to suit traumatized victim Jennifer William’s fancy….
According to TMZ reality star Jennifer Williams filed paper work back in January (The 21st to be exact, in which she claims Crooks delivered an “open hand” slap to the left side of her face during a group outing to a race track in Florida. » Read more.. (17)
Season 4 of our beloved Basketball Wives returned to Vh1 last night and right out the gate the lines had been drawn and the tone had been set as to what we could anticipate this go round. All of our regulars returned including Royce, Suzie, Tami, Evelyn, Jennifer, and over-all den mother and the HNIC of the popular franchise Shaunie “I Don’t Like No Drama” O’neal. Two new broads (Kesha & Kenya) join the melee and bam we got enough action this season to last a 3 life times. Don’t fret as I break down the 1st episode as only Bizzy can do..

The bad girls of Vh1 are back and believe me when I say that the drama and fighting continues well on into season 4. As always Evelyn is at the center of most of the chaos and this time she’s throwing fisticuffs at former BFF Jennifer. Something tells me this won’t end well……Of course Royce and Suzie return to their old stomping ground introducing two new chicks to the playing field who seem to catch all kinds of shots from the Basketball Wives alumni (Watch Tami check these girls proper!)….
All in all this will definitely be one of the best seasons to date that is unless Vh1 threw a bunch of bs footage together to entice our gullible appetites into watching. One thing is for certain though, Evelyn and Jennifer will eventually come to blows and Shaunie’s whole riot act about groupie chicks being friends without glass throwing and wig pulling is mere urban legend….

While Vh1 is continuing to fill our young generation with hood dreams of a basketball vixen the good times are rolling right on through and the beloved Shaunie, Evelyn, Tami, Jennifer, Royce, Suzie, and 2 new additions are all set to go when the 4th season of Basketball Wives premieres next month.
After infecting me with a love for Ratchet Music the homie Freshlina of Crunk + Disorderly showed off the new promo pix from Basketball Wives season 4 and posted the VH1 press release….
