“Basketball Wives” Is Being BOYCOTTED!!!!!


I’ve said my piece on this many of times so all my readers know how I feel about women showing their ignorance.  Now the whole world seems to be tired of it too finally.  There’s a fine line between good drama and flat out crisis.  Yes this is a crisis.  See why below.

Folks are absolutely fed up with the utter foolywangery that is VH1′s “Basketball Wives.”  It only took 4 seasons for that to happen.  Yet and still, a petition has popped up to boycott cast member Evelyn Lozada‘s new spinoff show….and Star Jones is gathering up support of powerful women to get the show and its often embarrassing antics stopped.  Theybf reports…

Evelyn and her assistant Nia Crooks ganging up on co-star Jennifer Williams this season seems to have been the straw that broke the slaphappy camel’s back.  Because folks are more up in arms than ever at the antics of the grown women on this show.  From jumping on tables just to get a lick in on another female to throwing glass in the face of another to may-jah curse-your-ass-out arguments, it’s a lot going on “Basketball Wives” these days.

An excerpt from an online petition that is now circulating (check it out in full HERE) reads:

“Evelyn Lozada is a bully. The violence on ‘Basketball Wives’ is horrible and disgraceful.  This is not a hate petition against Eveyln Lozada. We simply will not support violence. It hurts to see violence amongst women on television for entertainment purposes. It is not OK for women to hit each other on TV.

Just about every altercation and argument on the show has involved Evelyn in some way, shape or form. From the yelling match on the season 4 premier against her former bestie, Jen, to the table climbing and hair pulling in the last couple of episodes, the woman has a problem for reals.”

Ha!  The petition also asks viewers to call and write Viacom in order to stop the release of “Ev & Ocho,” Evelyn’s spinoff show with fiance Chad OchoCinco.

Meanwhile, former “The View” co-host Star Jones went on a twitter rant reading these chicks.  Which we assume would include her ex-hubby, Al Reynolds, who appeared on several episodes as the girls’ bestie. *eyebrow raised*

She popped off this week saying:

“It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH.”

“About to put together a group of sisters to finally ‘tell the truth’ about the image of women of color in the media.”

She continued:

“And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn’t have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS! You NEVER give up your right not to have your ‘person’ intentionally assaulted unless you are participating in an agreed physical activity.

…little black girls deserve more than what we’re giving! It sickens me @lov3lylina85 when young sis think that behavior is acceptable. U can’t get a REAL JOB acting like an animal.”



I am so happy we are finally having enough of this mess. I love drama but this is not what our teenagers need to see. Period.  When I met Evelyn she was soooooo sweet and nothing like on television.  This was a few seasons ago.  I just don’t understand how such a beautiful woman can just turn so violent when the cameras are on.  I hope she listens to the fans that are reaching out and saying enough is enough!

What are your thoughts on this? Are you tired of seeing the bullying or is it entertaining to you?

I agree. We as African American women need to send more positive
images to our young girls. Yes Evelyn is very disrespectful and a bully to anyone whom she feels is not on her side. Tammi I think just have underlying issues that comes out within conflicts. Yes Jen may have had her moments too but she never stooped as low as Evelyn. Also I respect Shaunie but she also have some blame in this also. She wants to be viewed as a peace maker but she also puts her two cents in the drama as well. To me this is her show and if she wanted it to be positive all the drama that’s caused by Evelyn and her click can be stopped. I support Jen fully. She has grown out from the Evelyn click. I think Evelyn is really jealous and wish she had what Jen had. Evelyn needs to grow up.

Meka says:

I agree. Evelyn and Tami are both bullies. They feed off each other and spur each other on to act a fool. Litigation is the ONLY thing that works for folsk like this. you see Tami has sat her butt down this season after Meeka Claxton put thise papers on her butt. Ridiculously ignorant way for adult women to behave. I with the boycott!!!!!

Tia says:

Since the beginning of the show, I was disgusted with Evelyn. She is a bully and Tammy is not far behind. I am in total support of Jen. There comes a point in life where people have to learn different and more effective ways to resolve conflict. Evelyn’s behavior is horrible and I am really outdone at the comments made by Tami in which she says Jen should have handled that situation with more violence! Jen sent a clear message! The pen is mightier than the sword!
