Jennifer Williams Is Getting Her Own Reality Show And Guess Who’s Producing It?

Jennifer Williams hasn’t exactly disappeared since opting not to return for the fifth season of “Basketball Wives” in Miami. She’s still seen out and about at virtually ever reality TV red carpet event in NYC, but one place we haven’t been seeing her is on the television — yet.

While the ex-wife of Eric Williams attended the screening for VH1’s new series, “The Gossip Game,” Jennifer let on that she’s working on a spin-off reality show of her own and since we already know how the Viacom network gets down, you should know this project has Mona Scott-Young’s name all over it.

According to VH1’s blog:

“It came as a shock to many when word got out that Jenn wouldn’t return to the fifth season of Basketball Wives. Arguably the only “real” Basketball Wife, many revered Jenn for her class and maturity on screen. When asked about her departure she simply stated, “It wasn’t for me anymore.” But does that mean she’s over television, too? Lucky for us, Jenn revealed she’s in talks with Scott-Young to create a reality show of her own, embodying the philosophy that when one door closes, another surely opens. A glimpse into her new business ventures with Lucid Cosmetics, or her relationship with new boo Cisco Rosado (who happens to be the founder of CMG entertainment) could work, especially if we see another side of Jenn– the “real” her, and we aren’t talking about Drake songs.”

This doesn’t come as a total shock as Jenn obviously loves the spotlight, and VH1 is known for trying to milk every last ounce of juice they can out of their reality TV cohorts. What would be surprising though, and I hate to say it, would be Jenn’s ability to carry a show by herself. Among the hyper personalities of the women on BBW, her chill demeanor is a welcome presence, but on her own I can see her coming off as very…boring — unless there’s some drama to be seen between her and her man. And, personally, I wouldn’t wish that on them because too many reality relationships have gone by the wayside as a result of these types of television shows.

Despite the lack of a clear vision for the new series — or a premiere date — one thing we do know is the show will not have a storyline about Jenn reuniting with her long lost buddy Evelyn Lozada. According to VH1:

“[F]or those of you who are wondering if Jenn and her former costar, Evelyn Lozada, ever became friends again… Jenn uttered not a single word when asked about their onscreen quarrel. But there was a look! And that look read “Hell to the no.”

That’s probably a good move. What do you think about Jenn getting her own reality show. Will you watch?

    Ur right I couldn’t watch this show with Jen alone I will be bored outta my mind she doesn’t have the personality to uphold her own show and never heard of her new boo either FAIL

  • scandalous7

    I like Jennifer, one of the few non-ratchett stereotype perpetuants. Hope she does well.

  • mandy

    Yes finally..Make it happen;)..LoveJen..U DONT NEED SHADY SHAUNIE,

  • NeaJ

    I like Jen & I think she gives off a very classy vibe. But let’s be real. Most ppl watch “reality” shows to see the drama, ratchetness & foolery that goes on. That kind of stuff brings the high ratings. I wish her much success though

  • mrsbthediva

    I’ll give her a shot. I’ve always liked her and after the way her ex-man and her ex-best friend dogged her out, I want to see happiness and success in her life. This could be a good way for her to get some exposure for her business. Plus, I’m tired of seeing loud-mouthed, over the top, rachet-assed women on these reality shows. Time for the return of classy!

  • MonicaT

    Yes I would watch. I hope it’s something to do about her business ventures. TEAMJEN!!!!

  • OhOkay

    This show could be a win-win for both parties. Jenn can have a side income working while trying to get business up and running as well as business exposure, and this show could possibly help rehabilitate Mona’s image as a TV producer in the black community. Well…. possibly.

  • Millicent
