Monet Merchand Dishes On The Shadiness Of Basketball Wives, Dating Stephon Marbury & Tami Roman Being Disrespectful!

I had no idea who Monet Merchand was much less that she was female MC but after reviewing her credentials and googling her name I peeled back the layers and introduced myself to the woman who drives nails down the back of reality star Tasha Marbury. While her appearance on Basketball Wives was rather short and one-sided, Monet visits bizzyblanco.com and discusses her music career, how the beef between her Tasha Marbury started, and what she really thinks about Tami Roman!
Sit back, relax, and click ahead for our interview because Monet Merchand has a lot to say and this post is worth every reading moment!

Tami Roman Discusses Business, Bullies, and B*tches w/ The Breakfast Club [Video]


So my favorite Reality Ratchet (don’t say it around her) Tami Roman stopped by Power 105’s The Breakfast Club this morning. Ms. Roman chopped it up with the crew and defended her view on Chad and Evelyn working it out, her partnership with Walgreens, and leaving the show. While her exiting Basketball Wives was taken out of context in a previous interview she does believe this will be the last season for the once popular reality fixture.

sidenote: Tami smile is phenomenal! Great pearly whites!

Watch what happens when worlds collide as Tami visits The Breakfast Club.

Real Talk Tasha Marbury Has No New Friends…..At least In Real Life

I really haven’t participated in the Basketball Wives shenanigans since Tami Roman gave a verbal ass beating to former cast member Kiesha Nichols last season not to mention the Dear Tami letter I wrote to her just before she deleted her Twitter (she eventually returned)…..

So as I got home last night I decided to see what new f*ck shit these old broads were stirring up. I know former NBA star Stephan Marbury‘s wifey Tasha had joined the cast and was already filtering the drama among the girls. In one episode Tasha and Saliva Mouth decided to ki’ ki’ about Evelyn catching the fade from Chad which led to some not so friendly dialogue between Ev and Tasha. After the two pleaded their cases to one another (As always) Tasha decided to invite Ev to her Weave Bar opening in Brooklyn and then the shade started……

[Watch] Basketball Wives Season 5 Supertrailer!!! It’s Going Down!!

While season 5 should have come and went months ago, a plethora of heat managed to plague the chicks of Basketball Wives in the last year and like a good shit starter producer Shaunie had to save face and re-position the girls in good working order…. meaning no more drama…. yeah ok..

The supertrailer is packed with tons of impending drama including Evelyn‘s aftermath with Chad, the arrival of newbie and REAL basketball wife Tasha Marbury, Suzie‘s bitchassness and shade, and a holy grail showdown between Tami and Shaunie!

Hey it was bound to happen….

Really not too sure how things will end but it would be nice to see this series go in a series finale direction. Not much more you can do at this point and I’m sure the ladies have gained enough exposure to trot off into the sunset with expanding business ventures.

Check out the supertrailer below with anticipation as season 5 of Basketball Wives premieres August 19 at 8/9c on VH1!

[Promo Pix] 1st Look At The Returning Cast Of ‘Basketball Wives’ Season 5


So after a few headbutts, fights, and pink slips the grand divas of Vh1’s Basketball Wives are set to make a return…..in a slightly smaller and scaled down way. That’s right Shaunie O’neal has finally got the wheels in motion and her accompanying goons Tami Roman, Evelyn Lozada and resident lap dog Suzie Ketcham are in back in the grand scheme of things with ‘Basketball Wives’ season 5. Noticably absent are Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed, Kenya Bell, and Kesha Nichols (as if we even cared)… If you were expecting a tv reunion between Jen and Ev then pack that one up and return to sender.

Often with sad goodbyes doors open to welcome new faces as the ‘Circe’ welcomes newbie Tasha Marbury the wife of 10 years to former NBA star Stephon Marbury. Don’t fret because we hear she’s packing hella drama that will ensure we stay entertained without the usual suspects missing in action.

The girls look photo shoot fresh as we are left to wonder if the fights, petty drama, and backstabbing will be kept to a minimum going forward into the sunset? Especially after all of the backlash the girls endured last season.

Anyway check out the promo pics below and get ready as the new season is set to premiere Monday August 19th on Vh1!

The Top 5 Reason’s Why Basketball Wives Shouldn’t Flop Next Season

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. Check out Bizzy‘s 5 things that seriously need to happen and turn the show around…. » Read more..

Tami Roman Appears On Wendy Williams And Discusses Basketball Wives Being Renewed/Kesha Nicols Apology/And New Sitcom

I’m proud of Tami Roman for standing up and admitting her unruly behavior on The Wendy Williams Show yesterdayIt’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…

Meeka Claxton Speaks Out On Bullying : “Where Was My Support?”


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”.

Dear Tami Roman….A Letter From Me To You


Dear Tami,

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?

Reality Riff News: Khloé and Lamar Ax Reality Show + Jennifer Williams To Be Sued By Producers

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…
