Sponsors Start To Pull Out Of "Basketball Wives" & "Ev & Ocho" + Royce Goes IN on Tami For Tahiti Episode
Oh those "Basketball Wives." Not only have sponsors started to take heed to the petition to get the show (and Evelyn Lozada's spinoff) off the air, but Royce Reed is taking co-star Tami Roman to task about her actions on last night's episode surrounding the Tahiti trip foolery.
Check it inside...
Maybe it's for the best Royce opted out of the Tahiti trip from hell that aired last night. From the time the cast landed in Tahiti, there was tension and drama between Kesha and Tami. All because Kesha was coughing and "not covering her mouth." At least that's what Tami said. Kesha felt bullied, as always, and Tami defended her own actions because she was offended by the apparent rudeness of the coughing. Sigh.
Things escalated and fights broke out.
Royce took to her VH1 blog today to give her 2 cents about the whole episode...and she let Tami (and everybody else except for Kesha) have it. No surprise there. Here's the excerpts:
I was honestly just hoping Kesha didn’t say her skin hurt. Tami seemed as though she was trying to find something to get upset about and she chose a cough. From the way the girls were seated in the car, to laughing and making faces behind Kesha’s back if you take a screen capture from that scene and mine from the van in Spain, it’s almost identical.
I’m not sure what happened to Tami, but this isn’t the woman I’ve gotten to know. To see these women gang up on someone who has done nothing to them is embarrassing. I say ganging up because NO ONE did anything to stop it. If you don’t say anything you then become part of the problem. Who cares if Kesha was scared to get in the ocean with sharks and stingrays, I don’t believe I saw any of your asses in a swimsuit jumping in the water either. How are you going to call someone else scary when at least they put on the attire instead of saying “Oh Hell NO” in confessionals?????
I applaud Suzie and Kesha for appreciating what Tahiti had to offer and attempting to stay drama free. I find it amazing when alcohol is used as liquid courage and an excuse to turn into the HULK. Most times I drink, I get emotional, horny, and just want to dance…..:side-eye: lol. But if you know that drinks cause you to have a temper, why indulge just because everyone else is? The whole scene with Tami and Kesha I shook my head. At some point you have to look at yourself and say “Damn, that wasn’t a good look. I need to change the way I speak to people and handle things because I look crazy.” If you don’t see it, your “so-called” friends have and should tell you the same. Tami, if Evelyn and Shaunie found no problem with Kesha’s questions, it wasn’t up to you to find one. Tami, if you HEARD Kesha said all these things about you, why not call out the person who told you so you can get all three parties together.
I’m sure THAT PERSON was probably sitting at that table. I have an idea of two people who could’ve said it. One is known to talk a lot, and the other is a snake in the grass. If you’re going based off the footage that was shown, Kesha said “I seriously had to just NOT go off…and honestly, like, I could’ve came at Tami and said whatever I wanted to but there’s nothing I could’ve said that would’ve made her look worse than she was making herself look…Tami is like acting a fool” …She never said she wanted to, so why are you asking her to now??? The smirking on the side by Evelyn and Shaunie is a DAMN SHAME. Grown as women talking about a damn position! Grown ass women wanting to fight with no repercussions!I HEARD about what happened in Tahiti but seeing it now is an embarrassment and the sh!t is PISSING ME OFF!!!! GROWN ASS AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN feeding into the stereotype already placed on us…plus two!!!!!!!!
Meanwhile, (C.B. Fleet Company) Summer's Eve feminine products have reportedly pulled out of both BBW and the upcoming "Ev & Ocho." And Change.org is set to announce a second sponsor who pulled out next week. Is the petition and boycott working?
