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?

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

I work with a lot of young,

I work with a lot of young, well educated black women. It does my heart good to know they were raise to respect themselves. My own daughter does not curse, has never curse and we find it quite disrepectful to behave in public in such a way a being unlady like. Sham on letting yourself be used like this when other people in the World truly believe this is what a black woman is all about. Just sad. Once was enough for me.

If you look at the scene

If you look at the scene where Tami asks Keisha "what is she" was disgusting. The way she said it and the way Tami looked when she said it was outright disgusting. That alone should have caused outrage in the African American community. Of course Keisha would be wounded behind such a comment. We are clear who Tami is. She is a fool.

No one is saying anything

No one is saying anything about Suzie's triflin ass. We all know Suzie is the bitch going back telling shit from both sides. That's the bitch that need her ass kicked. They need to get at her and not Kenya and Kesha. Tami and Evelyn, A PERSON THAT TRIES TO FIGHT SOMEONE THAT DOESN'T WANT TO FIGHT IS A BULLY. That is YOU!

Just because this ladies,

Just because this ladies, have been able to buy Gucci shoes and Prada bags doesn't mean, that they have ascended to the level that those labels intended for the type of caliber of women they hoped to wear their clothes. I enjoyed this show before but after the JEN Slap, from a 3rd party, then EVE jumping on the table and smashed a bottle~~~~ it portrays us as low mentality and over emotional to a point of personal detriment!! Instead of hard-working women holding down households that are hectic to begin with..CANCEL THIS SHOW!!!

ROYCE said eveything I was

ROYCE said eveything I was thinking. As women they pick the dumbest stuff to blow up about, he said , she said, i heard, some one told me. I mean OMG how old are you and why does it matter???? None of the comments said by any party are any more offensive than what each woman has to say about the next on this show. But the LA cast is ratched according to Shaunie. Seriously, all of the actions are ratched, live your life and stop worrying about what the next person is saying, if its not stoping your hustle keep it moving. People will say worst about you, and you will do the same...thats life and it is what it is! Save that emotion for something more worth it.

Thank you Royce, I could not

Thank you Royce, I could not had said it better myself. To sit back and watch someone get picked on is a form of bullying..I am surprise of Shanie...she has really let her guards down,it a shame as far as EVE, Ocho, needs to run, and I they don't need a show, the way that she act, I can see right now how that show would be...she has some serious problems, Jen I at one time didn't care for but I can't say that now congrads for growing up and Suzie she could never be a friend of mines, she has caused a lot of problems and sit back and look like a deer in headlights like she don't know what is going on. Suzie is the cause of these females acting like fools because she tells everything...Royce I have mad love for you, just be careful and don't get hurt you are a beautiful woman and sometimes you need to listen to you parents...Keep your eyes open and your heart close..

There are a lot of women that watch this show in the united kingdom of all ethnic backgrounds. I am very disgusted at Tamis behaviour as it is uncalled for. She is far from real and more of a snake in the grass. I cant really comment on Ev other than she is damaged goods and anybody that is anybody has run up in her tired arse. Tami only preys on the women she percieves to be weak.

This kind of slow drain of

This kind of slow drain of black dignity has been going on for a while. When we as a community started uplifting ghetto behavior as the ideology of being black or cool and allowing the image of strippers and video vixens to be heralded as the image of the sought after woman for black men we were then on a slippery slop. Why do you think pole dancing classes are so popular now? Quiet as kept, some believe this is the way to keep their black man because of how strippers are now being more respected than regular decent black women by brothas. To top it off, we taken the image of things we took pride in and stomped on it...motherhood and being an athlete's wife. For instance black women have always took pride in being good mothers, then we have shows like Keyshia Cole's show with her mother acting a fool as if this is the behavior of all black mothers. Granted, we know there are children of addicts amongst us and they deserve a voice, but that show turned into pure exploitation and was degrading to black mothers alike. Now we have BBW. To be an athlete's wife meant some special and I never viewed these women as ghetto. We knew they would be a little petty, snobby, shop alot and do charity, but to present them as ghetto as Shaunie has done is downright wrong. So in essence, everything that we took pride in is slowly being taken from us, by us.

Who the fuck is Tami to tell

Who the fuck is Tami to tell someone how to cough? Fuck her! I just made an observation (could be right, could be wrong) but why did Summer's Eve decide to pull out now? Was it because a bunch of angry black women ganged up on the little white girl? These hoodrats have been fighting each other since day one and that petition has been floating around for awhile now. Did it take this one episode for them to finally say enough? As long as these black chicks beat each other down its ok, but when they start beating on the helpless white chick, they pull their ads.

FIRST SEASON, I said that

FIRST SEASON, I said that this show was ridiculous considering the "issues" consistently at the center of dialogue. Very interesting to observe the amount of people who say that it took a certain episode or another to realize the utter lack of maturity on display. Why so late? People of color should have been boycotting Vh1 ten years ago when the network began to rest its success on programs like Flava Flave, I Love New York, I Love Ray J, etc. None of it has ever been particularly positive. Where did you think it was headed? Seems like we start screaming only AFTER we've said hello to the murderer, watched him buy a gun, gotten in his car, and ridden calmly in the passenger's seat while he drove to an isolated location.

VH1 you need to open your greedy eyes and take this Ghetto show off the air. Tami Roman has a mental problem and needs to be committed. Evelyn is a plain low class street woman with a man that F--k everything he cans. Mrs. Shaunie you are the cause of all the Drama and negativity on the show. You call yourself a producer! Yeah right! You are a low down snake in the grass, that would do anything for money. Sad! Sad! You should hate to look at yourself in the mirror! All VH1 viewers needs to boycotts their programs! They dont care about promoting a positive image of the African American Female. Boycott now!

Well I really dont have that

Well I really dont have that much to say except I think it is really sad to see our black sister's act a fool over nothing and it really upset's me to see that we think acting a fool and cursing each other out is the answer, and really it's not for one our children are watching these show's and for once I wish that we can be more responsible and more like woman and not like little girl's in high school. I like the show but I dont like to see when everyone is at each other throat's arguing and fighting , and I feel really bad for Jennifer I really think evelyn is jealous of her it's so sad evelyn is super ghetto and she is a hood rat straight up lol I hope one day Jennifer come and beat her ass lmbo im joking but really evelyn needs to stop being so damn mean, people from new york are just rude and mean and bullies my god smgdh but hopefully Jennifer and evelyn can resolved their issues and become friends again.

@ Anonymous "BBW's...... but not Jersey Shore? Not Mob wives? Not Real Housewives of New Jersey? Really?" I agree but that's just how society is, it's as if they hold us AA women up to higher standards, but that's not it. It's ok for the white race to parade around acting foolish b/c they have nothing to lose, but AA Women and African American's in general do, that's why it's a huge issue.

I just don't think that bad

I just don't think that bad behavior should be promoted,BBW is shameful and these ladies should know better. I stop watching after last night. I should have stop from Evelyn started throwing things at people. The thing is even if someone says something about you that is there opinion and everyone has one, so why would you behave so stupid.

Hey Royce how is Dezmon? Oh

Hey Royce how is Dezmon? Oh ok that's what I thought! So STFU! You may not start unnecessary fights but you ain't no different boo. You let a dude publicly humiliate you yet you're still with him. Hmmm...DESPERATE! In case you didn't know that's also an AA Woman stereotype (that we're weak and have low self esteem b/c we date men that's no good and don't want us)

Bitch! You sound stupid. How

Bitch! You sound stupid. How is Royce's relationship in any comparison to these off the wall women throwing bottle, bullying, smacking people, and jumping across tables? This is the most ignorant statement to date. How did he publicly humiliate her? Every relationship has their problems and things to work on and he clearly is just a good guy that wants to be with her. If you want to talk about humiliation look at how Chad speaks to Evelyn. The man flat out disrespects her calling her the "Last slice of pizza that no one wants", saying he would cheat if she didnt let him do his thing, and best of all "Yeah you have money! What do you think I'm with you for because it certainly not your looks". What kind of woman trys to get knocked up with twins by someone who didnt even know their age? Now thats desperate!

I just now watched the most

I just now watched the most recent episode of Basketball Wives; that should be turned into Pitbulls with skirts. There behavior is embarrassing... and poor Kesha!! I was in tears watching how Tami was berating her over some nonsense!! I said, it is time to stop watching this show.... supporting this mess does absolutely no good to the image of African American Women. Tami was wrong; I can kinda understand some of Evelyn's tangents against Jen; not the violence; but the hurt behind Jen's actions. But Shaunie I blame the most because she promotes this mess and if anyone could have gotten Tami to back up off Kesha, Shaunie should have spoke up. They accused Kesha of being scared, is Shaunie scared too? Then she tries to defend her actions? Some of these women are mothers!!! Are you proud to have your children watching your behavior. I see in the next episode that Kesha was going to report them to the police. Good for her. She should have... I'm like Bernie Mac, call me a snitch or what ever you want, I'm calling the police on you ass! Grown women acting like this. It is embarrassing. They were bullying that poor girl no one came to her aide, not even the freaking producers or camera men. There is a freaking NATIONAL CAMPAIGN against bullying and it viewed on TV everyday under the umbrella of entertainment for money. You have to treat other people in that manner for ratings; then there is something truly wrong with this country. Bravo to Royce for her comments. But everyone plays a part in Kesha being bullied: VH1, Shaunie O'Neal, Evelyn, Suzie, and most of all Tami. Time out from this mess. Get some self pride back! Geesh!

The incidents would be a little bit more understanding, if it didn't seem like bullying and rather a simple physical altercation..I.E. Teresa and Danielle, there was no ganging up, there wasn't a continuous smack down every episode...Jersey Shore, these kids party together day in and out, they're not at blows half as much as Basketball wives....Mob wives(that's an entirely different story)...These chicks are despicable and your support of the foolishness makes you a bird!

You know what I see is a show

You know what I see is a show full of women that have been given the opportunity to be examples to young black girls and Latino girls and they have some how figured out a way to turn this into a show of anger and bitterness. What's more damaging is that our young girls think to behave like this or solve conflict like this is appropriate. If you ask me Tami and Evenlyn are no different than the hood woman at the grocery store in her pajamas and satin cap arguing about why her EBT card is not working, they just have a stylist thanks to vh1. Have some class ladies and a spirit of excellence about yourselves. Our youth are watching whether we want them to or not.
