I will admit that I have never seen a single episode of this show before. So, honestly? I have no idea what I just watched. There’s some shit stirrer named Meeka who is married to some basketball player I have never heard of. There is the ex-wife of Shaquille O’neal and there is Tami from The Real World plus some other women. I think they are or were married to basketball players. But, I honestly can’t be sure.
Is this a real show? Are these women really getting paid to be on TV?
If VH1 is willing to air it, I will do my best to recap it, but I honestly have no idea what the hell I just watched.
Tami from The Real World is really mad about some bitch making T-shirts (and they are really crappy T-shirts, by the way) about saying something disrespectful because it had to do with sleeping with Tami’s man? And there is someone named Meeka who is new and playing both sides of the fence according to all of the other women. But, they are all trying to be classy and just accept her anyway?
There is a tiny little woman named Royce who hates someone named Evelyn, who I think is the one making the T-shirts. Or, maybe she hates Evelyn’s friend?
Shaq’s ex-wife is trying to play it classy like she is totally above it all – even though she is introducing everyone to each other and sitting back to watch them all fuck each other over.
There is someone who got her condo sold out from under her and another woman (with a really weird looking face) who only appears to be friends with Tami from The Real World, and possibly the teeny tiny Royce (I can’t be sure).
They all wear gigantic earrings and try to pretend to be classier than each other. Are these women really married to professional athletes? Or, are they groupies and ex-groupies of professional athletes?
I am trying to make time to watch earlier seasons so that I have some idea of what is going on, but seriously?
From what I can gather, they go out to eat a lot and talk shit about each other while pretending that they are above talking shit about each other. Which makes no sense. Because why be on a reality TV show if you aren’t going to seriously talk shit about each other and be willing to back it up?
The most exciting thing that happened in the entire episode was someone tearing up Tami’s piece of paper after showing Tami some shitty (and they were really shitty) T-shirts.
Granted, it is Memorial Day and I have been drinking a quite a bit in honor of my homies, so I could have missed something important.
I’ll be better prepared with the full recap. In the meantime, can you guys please tell me what the hell is going on with this show?
Are any of these women actually married to famous basketball players? Will they do anything other than go out to restaurants while wearing big earrings? Is it possible that I drank way too much to catch the subtleties of Basketball Wives?
Don’t be shy. Tell me!
