I’m not a member of the NRA, but I am contemplating membership if for no other reason than to secure a shotgun that will help place Basketball Wives out of its misery. In the last seven days, we’ve heard both Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman drop hints that they may be done with the aging VH1 franchise.
Both ladies have made full Eeyore’s out of themselves throughout their time on the show, but you’ve got to give them credit for knowing when to abandon ship before it goes full out Titanic. Yes, the show has added new life in Tasha Marbury, but if her behavior on last night’s show is any indication where this reality series is headed, someone take me down to the Walmart to secure the weapon. —Michael Arceneaux(@youngsinick)
3. Tasha Is Mad
Before Tasha shows up to show how rude and petty she can be with people she just met, Evelyn and Shaunie alert us to the “The Angry Birds” story that they saw “on the blogs.” Which blogs, you ask? None that I read, but whatever. This storyline isn’t going to manufacture itself. Let these women work.
For the record, the angry birds are Shaunie and Evelyn and as “the blogs” tell it, the two stormed out of Tasha’s party in a fit of rage. Speaking of anger, Tasha comes into the restaurant mad as hell and ready to fuss with the other four women. She starts off by saying that Evelyn should’ve stayed at the party because they’re trying to repair their relationship. Tasha then tells Suzie and Shaunie that given they’re trying to build a friendship, they shouldn’t have left either. As she asks aloud, “Who comes to a birthday party and leaves? Who does that?” This woman is so draining and she just got here.
Despite Tasha being absolutely ridiculous, Shaunie apologizes for leaving her boring party after two hours of waiting. Tasha, who makes it clear that she takes her birthday very seriously, doesn’t really accept the apology. When Evelyn asks if she got the gift they left them – a blinged out penis worth “$300 or something – Tasha says she did, but notes that she prefers a warm body. Tasha then asks Tami where was her gift? Why did they let Jennifer Williams go again?
