Say What Now? 5 Crazy Things We Learned During Part 1 Of The Basketball Wives LA Reunion
Though the second season of Basketball Wives LA wasn’t as entertaining as viewers — and VH1– had hoped, the reunion definitely kept quite a few people’s attention last night. Just when we thought we knew everything there was to know about the seven basketball wives, sidepieces, jumpoffs, girlfriends, groupies, and video vixens, they turned around and exposed some interesting secrets during part 1 of the 2-part reunion. Let’s just say we will be tuning in next Monday to tie up the rest of these loose ends. Check out the craziest things we learned during last night’s reunion.
Everyone clearly brings their own sylist
This is the first time I had this eureka moment and maybe it’s because the BBW Miami cast generally knows how to dress, but how is it that Malaysia, Brooke, Laura, and Gloria could look so on point last night and Jackie and Bambi sat on the stage looking like they just hit up Rainbow’s 75% off rack before the show. Ya’ll know about Rainbow right?
Bambi looked like she should have been named Mermaid and Jackie’s thigh-high boots, trench coat, and way too visible white eyelet bra were very Julia Roberts Pretty Woman. Draya also had that stripper look poppin’ but I must say the hair was crute. Still, why won’t VH1 save these ladies from themselves?
Malaysia is the actual show, except Gloria is the reason there is a show
Malaysia had the most hilarious attempt at throwing hesistant shade ever seen on last night’s reunion. When a viewer questioned her motives to become more relevant, she was quick to point out that she is the actual show, as in the only legitimate basketball wife around. Sensing the jump-off wrath that was about to be upon her, Malaysia got to stumbling and clearing that statement up real quick, acknowledging that Jackie is also a wife and there are now other wives on the show. Ol’ girl should’ve just owned her first statement. It ain’t like she was lying.
Somewhere along the way though, Gloria got buck and decided to let everyone know she was the real reason there was a spinoff to begin with and basically everyone on stage owes their fame to her boring self. As expected, they weren’t hearing it.
Laura’s been a BBW for three years?
Fact checkers are still out as far as this point is concerned, but last night, Gloria let it slip that Laura has been a basketball wife for three years while trying to check Bambi. I can’t tell if this was one of those B.S. lies she said just because the cameras were rolling or if that was real confirmation of Laura’s claim earlier this year that she and Gilbert are already married.
The thing is, while Laura and Gloria think this makes her look better, I wanna know how you marry a man who had a gag order out on you so you wouldn’t talk about him on the show. I don’t know what you’re thinking, but that sounds like the makings of a 48-month marriage to me. Oh yeah, and Laura claims to be 33. I think her math might be a smidge off their too.
Even grown a** women dream of being rappers
Here and now I apologize to all the grown men I’ve clowned for their 40-year-old rap dreams because Jackie proved last night it’s not just a man thing — unfortunately.
We heard the rumors Jackie had a rap track out before last night, we were just hoping it wasn’t true. But low and behold trench coat mafia got behind the mic and attempted to freestyle and, expectantly, embarrassed her thirsty self once again, spitting rhymes about wanting to be friends with Bambi. On the other side, Bambi’s rap was slightly better but the Vannah Black getup threw the whole thing off.
If you’re a h*e you have to own it
Hey, we don’t make the rules, we just hear about them. I’m guessing this was Gloria’s first time hearing about them too or else she would have fessed up to some of the slander Bambi spread about her “busting it open for sweatshirts” in the studio. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about how Gloria gets down and though she’s never denied doing so, she’s never admitted it either. If ol’ girl owned it she might still be on the show next season. #JustSayin
