Source: Basketball Wives Producers Pissed About Face-Slap Lawsuit
Although Jennifer Williams is allegedly trying to shore up interest in her storyline to cinch a spot on the next season of Basketball Wives by filing a lawsuit against Evelyn Lozada‘s assistant, Nia Crooks, for slapping her in the face during last week’s episode, the move may have the opposite effect. Reportedly, the producers of the hit VH1 reality series are pissed that Jen is suing over the very ugly racetrack confrontation. According to TMZ:
“Sources close to production tell TMZ … Williams was already on thin ice with the show — even before her slaptastic showdown with Nia Crooks — but now that she has filed a lawsuit … that ice is breaking FAST.
We’re told producers think the suit is BS … claiming Jennifer never had a problem with fighting before and insist this is a desperate publicity stunt to keep her storyline interesting — securing her a place in season 5.
But a source tells us the stunt is not working, adding, ‘Filing broad lawsuits when you are as much to blame for the drama, is not the way to get your contract extended.’”
Although I don’t agree with anyone resorting to physical violence to resolve their issues, has Jennifer been totally oblivious to the last few seasons of the show?? Fighting, face slapping, glass throwing, and name calling has become par for the course on the show…as much as I hate grown women acting a damn fool on national television, it wouldn’t be Basketball Wives if Evelyn wasn’t jumping across a table at someone or Tami wasn’t calling someone a b*tch.
