The BOYCOTT Of Evelyn Lozada & The "Basketball Wives" Is ON!

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.

 

Deets inside...

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."

So...who's getting their virtual picket signs ready for the fight?  Any takers?

Shaunie its been said that

Shaunie its been said that you kicked Jen, Royce and Keisha off the show. Who you should have kicked off the show should be YOURSELF, EVELYN AND TAMMI ghetto asses.(Oh,,don't let me forget about the snitch bitch Susie the NMFactor!!!l You four are the reasons for the flop of your show and you allowed it to happen. A bunch of sorry, miserable broads who do nothing but sit around drinking and keeping up drama.(Thats the perception of this show). Shaunie you better let it go before your name gets smeared worse than it already has. Jen, Royce and Keisha probably told you they quit!!!

Jen I amend you for handling

Jen I amend you for handling the situation like a lady. Theres more than one way to fight and you did it the right way. I would have done it the same thing. Sue that ignorant broad who had the nerve to put her hands on you. Hopefully she'll learn from it.(She was only trying to impress Eve, Shaunie and Tami excluding Susie..what would evelyn say..shes a nmfactor. Those dispicable, triflin poor examples of women who are mothers need to understand that you CANNOT go around slapping, throwing bottles, jumping on tables, stealing peoples personal property and think its ok. I am embarassed for them...Jen good luck in your business ventures and continue to associate yourslef with positive influences. Evelyn is jealous of you. Shaunie is money hungry, tami is a hoodrat bully and susie is a nmfactor!!!

I honestly agree. Baseball

I honestly agree. Baseball wives, Jersy shore and Mob wives are worst than the BBW. This has nothing to do with skin color. Women of all races can be ignorant. Check the other reality shows.

These people are falling into

These people are falling into the ghetto urban sterotypes and Evelyn is jealous of Jennifer because she is the only who has something going on (businesses etc.) other than Jennifer other than being an ex- baby mama or girlfriend of someone throwing a ball. Is this the advice these fools give to their daughters????????

Not only should Evelyn's show

Not only should Evelyn's show be boycotted but BBW should be cancelled. VH1 and the Executive Producers (other than Shaunie) are incredibly irresponsible as they are promoting and justifying Tami, Evelyn AND Shaunie's bullying. This is absolutely ridiculous. The reunion show was so slanted and John Salley should also be fired. The audience clapping to these old women's behavior is disgusting.

I agree with some of those

I agree with some of those comments, I volunteer at a local high school and was ask if I watch the show of course I said yes, then the questions begin, how is it another black female can call them the B word and when the other race call them that it's not right is like saying one race can call us the N word but the other one cannot it is court and fighting, this send the wrong message, also it was said by some of the seniors basketball guys that they will never marry a black chick due to this kind of things they see and that is why even our professional athlete went for the other race because they dont come on TV acting getto and even some hoodrats acting better than those women. That is what these students are saying as they about to go out in the next phase of their lives, and to listen to them saying this I was on some shock, to me a few good black female going to be left single for a goodd while, we must remember even thou it is acting we need to be more aware of our family that watch these show, like one child say, how come Shack wife doesn't act like them meaning Shane. I think is time to clean up that image and some of those cast need to go and have a more positive side of basketball wives and show these young kids that there is a more civilize side to basketball ladies. Hoping to watch it then, but for now it leave a bitter taste due to the fact our young people are feeling the way they do. Thanks.

Kenya, and Jen are the only

Kenya, and Jen are the only two who showed any kind of class this season. They are both very attractive, especially Kenya. She did look kooky though dancing on youtube like that but I'm glad she didn't let anyone tell her that she can't accomplish her dreams. Kesha on the other hand came off as a arrogant little bitch. The only thing tammy asked her was is she white. She went back and blew that entire question out of the water. If you watch the footage, Kesha actually laughed and didn't act bothered at all by the question. Kesha is a control freak, she wanted to control the way tammy asked her a question, and control the way Kenya decided to make her video. Although, tammy had no reason to get in her ass like she did. Kesha is on that old black white bullshit. comeon your a grown ass woman and if you get that sensitive to someone asking you a simple question, you got issues. Kesha needs to east a steak, and go get some laser resurfacing for her face and show a bit more tact.

Ev looks like a used up old washcloth that needs to be thrown in the trash. She looks more and more desperate everyday, planning a wedding with ugly ass ocho. That union is so phony, I honestly don't see no real sparks or chemistry between the two of them. Both are just using each other for their own self gain.

what kills me is that shaunie

what kills me is that shaunie had the nerv to said that she wonders what african american men and women think about her in board meetings. even though you're not the one fighting this is your show and 9 times out of 10 girl you be right up in the middle of the bull. you claim to be so sad and sorry for keisha but yet you was there letting the mess go down right in your face. not once did anyone stop tammi from talking to keisha in that tone or manner. nor did anyone try to stop her from bolding taking that girls bag and cell phone and had the nerv to look through her personal things as if it was a joke. the fish scene you was involved in to because you was there with them allowing the mess to go down once again. if you think that they think you are a ghetto hot mess than baby you are. because half of the situation/altercation would not ever happen if you stood up and said something about it. personally i think people should stop talking mess and it wont get back to the next person and there will never be a problem. susie need her ass beat up she is always telling things on people and running about to the circle telling them everything that happen. evelyn needs to get married and chill out although she did seem truly hurt about jennifer talking mess about her on the internet and she was suppose to be her friend. jennifer need to just not be around them at all like royce shes on the show but she got her own something something going on and not in the mix with them. jennifer is kind of silly to me if you big enough to talk about a person own up to your shit really. i do not like the fact that people are being bullied or hit on the show. but lets keep it real whos really going keep letting people talk shit about them and then they come around to laugh in your face thats like getting shitted on. which no one human will allow lets be real and honest. i like royce she dont sugar coat nothing and shes going to tell it like it is basically and not care who dont like it in the end my type of girl without putting her hands on anyone. she stood up to eve and shaunie and jen and i think she'll do just fine on the reunion standing up to that dam giant of a bully tammi.

It’s time once again to

It’s time once again to welcome Royce Reed back to the blog so she can tell it like it is. For the past two seasons of Basketball Wives, Royce has recapped every episode, all the highs and lows, and given us her completely honest and unfiltered opinion. We’re thrilled to have her back for season four. OK HERE WE GO!!! AGAIN, THIS IS MY BLOG AND I SAY WHAT I WANT WHEN I WANT AND HOW I WANT. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT DON’T READ IT. This episode was very disturbing. From the airing of the dirty laundry and throwing skeletons out the closet to questioning the loyalty of a friendship because you were told you were wrong… I cringed as I watch the scenes between Evelyn and Jenn. In all the interviews I’ve read from both sides I’ve NEVER read about Jenn telling anyone’s secrets. Not Nia’s, not Evelyn’s. Sure, some of her statements can be taken the wrong way, but isn’t that what we signed up for when we decided to do a reality show? To have an opinion? To voice that opinion? I’m confused. It shocked me to see Evelyn air so many of Jenn’s secrets. It almost seemed as if she got joy from not only airing it to the other ladies, but to the world. We didn’t need to know, especially from her former best friends, that her bank accounts were locked, her heat was turned off or who she slept with without a condom. I’m pretty sure if Jenn had a tell-all book, many would move to that cave Uncle Phil was in before Hillary’s Playboy ad came out on the Fresh Prince…Just sayin’…Jenn may be bougie, she may say a lot of ignorant ish at times (ie. country vs bougie, or doing what the white people do) but an opinion not elaborated on is just that, an opinion. I’ve seen her keep the friend code and if there’s any key she still has, its not to Nia’s apartment, its to her loyalty in keeping those secrets as a friend/former friend. It’s sad to see the friend code battered and butchered so horribly. So Evelyn, I hope you know that was “Ratchet!!!!!…..Ooooh she two-faced.” (Have you seen that video?) I must say it was a bit humorous to hear them arguing about what was being said over Twitter…sounds familiar…my, how the tables have turned. “Twitter Crazed”…Moving on… Tami: F*ck me? Our friendship may be over? WOW! REALLY? Because I told you it was wrong to call someone a Bitch repeatedly? Because I told you it was wrong to chastise, yell, and belittle someone? Because I told you I didn’t want you to come across as a bully and you were better than that???? If that’s the cause of our friendship ending then we were never really friends. How do you involve yourself in other people’s issues (i.e. Evelyn and Jenn, and Kesha and Kenya) but then have the least to say concerning your own. I’ve stated many times the type of friends I have and what I expect from them. I may get upset, but they tell me the truth. Right, wrong, bitch, bougie. I’ve also stated, many times, I don’t have a lot of girl friends. THIS IS WHY! I was a REAL and TRUE friend to you, POINT BLANK, and you gave me your ass to kiss because of it. I don’t have time for the petty bullsh!t. I don’t have time to fight over hearsay. FYI and for future reference…Most “REAL FRIENDS” aren’t there when altercations happen because MOST REAL FRIENDS would stop it before it occurred. I have a mind of my own and I speak it. So question the minds of those who were around you and said nothing to your face but all behind your back…Question those who have meetings calling their friends a “Ghetto Hot Mess” and rather than GENUINELY trying the diffuse the fire they throw in the match and walk away like their hands are clean. Oh, and lets be clear…at no point did I EVER say Kesha was right in anything she said. I don’t take sides of people, I take sides of situations and in that situation your ass was wrong wrong and another wrong. Suzie, you second what? Chile pls! Shaunie, wow are you going to basically force Jenn to speak to Evelyn but you wouldn’t even film with me? That’s so hypocritical. My question is why didn’t you return my phone call when I reached out to you about the misunderstanding we had over a year ago that was then followed by false accusations and lies. Point is, we all have our issues and neither of us is perfect nor do we pretend to be. Please don’t act like you’re a saint and more people would respect you for that. Own up to your part then we can all sit down as women and hash it out. Hopefully after watching this episode, everyone in the cast sees how you truly view all of us…You drew the lines in the sand. It’s not really fair to be one of the executive producers and a cast member at the same time, is it? If you truly want to turn a new leaf, let’s be adults and sit down and talk. Let’s right our wrongs, let’s fix what’s broken, and let’s bond what’s been separated! Isn’t that what all of this was originally for? To form a sisterhood from our past hurts and pains. Sisters fight but they always have each others back. What happened? When did that get lost? I have no idea because right now I feel like I no longer have eyes behind my head, but more like knives in my back. It’s been quite interesting blogging this season. From blogging about the episodes, to the social networks, to even my personal life, it’s been a purge. I enjoy writing and hopefully I’ll be back as a blogger for a 4th season with Season 5…. I don’t blog the reunion because it’s a sit down with all the ladies and we express our feelings. It took about six hours to film the two hours you will see, so I’m anxious to see what airs. Till next season, I LOVE you all and I’m outtie!!!!!

I was a big fan at the beginning and thought I would be able to appreciate a good laugh now and again but now I' m just left with a very bad taste in my mouth from some of the name I COULD CALL THESE CHARCTERS IF I WASN'T A REAL LADY. Evelyn is a drunk and need a bed in rehab, and all the other females need to stand up in their own life be your own person and stop following behind that messes train. Shanie I'm sure you're checking you trap off these stupid females, but I thought you would have stood for uplifting BLACK WOMEN instead you do as everyone before you have done disgrace our BLACKNESS as well. I hope that CHECK is big enough to cover up your conscience and remember you are raising Black children and they learn from you WHO THEY ARE. To the rest of the females on that show a dollar should not be able to buy your dignity.... I hope the show be taken off the air and that neither of you ever be allow to represent our race again.... Evelyn grab your co- actors hand and drag them to REHAB.

The rudeness and disrespect on that show makes me ill, I can't believe that fighting, stealing, and drunkness is allowed and they have the nerves to claim to be right. WOW" all of you need treatment and detox center, Shaunie you should be ashame of yourself!!! I can't believe that these women has sold their soul for the evil dollar bill. Maybe if the drinking is removed just maybe you ladies could see how fowl you look to the world. Now we know why you all chase after basketball players and why they treat you like whore. However harsh that sound I pray that at least one of you find yourself.
