Basketball Wives‘ Jennifer Williams spoke about the reunion show, and the rumor that Evelyn Lozada slept with Shaquille O’Neal, Shaunie O’Neal’s famous ex-husband. Jennifer told The Breakfast Club that she stayed away from the recent reunion episode because she didn’t want another table thrown at her face. The reality TV star also spoke about being the target of the latest season. She was a woman designed to take the fall. Every lady becomes the “fall woman” and it was Jennifer’s turn, she claimed.
Basketball Wives table-throwing melee
Malaysia Pargo threw a table at Jennifer Williams – and the friendship between Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer ended. Jennifer and Evelyn met in 2000, but they didn’t speak for five years. Therefore, their 13-year friendship is at stake. “I feel like this show has ripped our friendship apart,” Jennifer said. Williams hopes that they can be cordial one day, since she and Lozada really love each other. But Jennifer said that plenty of people spoke of the rumor about Evelyn and Shaq. She feels she was singled out this season to amp up ratings.
Tami Roman and Shaunie O’Neal and other Basketball Wives women are very jealous of Jennifer and Evelyn’s friendship, Williams claimed. Jennifer said she didn’t want to come to Amsterdam in the first place. She was only in town for a matter of hours. Williams called Malaysia a “linebacker” who came at her with the table.
Jennifer still under Basketball Wives contract
Jennifer said that she hasn’t spoken to Malaysia after the table-throwing incident. However, Malaysia allegedly apologized for her behavior. Jenn didn’t get a direct apology. Williams is still under contract with the show, but she says that she heard the production crew got fired after the incident. Jennifer blamed Shaunie for a lot of drama on the show, saying that Shaunie got a higher check cut because of a highly-rated season.
Williams also spoke of her relationship with James “Tim” Norman, and how he allegedly moved across the street from her to bother the star. Jennifer was on her way to Atlanta to hang out with her new real estate “boss” boo. The mystery man is younger than 50 years of age. Plus, he doesn’t watch reality shows. Nor does he want Jennifer starring on reality television.
The future of the show: “Starting 5” wives
Jennifer’s future on Basketball Wives is up in the air, like a jump ball. The cast was asked which ladies they’d bring back next season. None of the women seemed to include Jennifer in their choices. Jackie Christie named way more than five women she’d like to see come to the reality show.
