Where Are They Now? Reality TV One-Hit Wonders From Basketball Wives And Love and Hip Hop

February 19, 2014 ‐ By Clarke Gail Baines
Reality TV isn’t for everybody, and the following people learned that the hard way. They had bottles thrown at them, their purses stolen, their business put on blast and their hearts broken all for the sake of ratings, yet, they didn’t make it past one season. Where are they now and what are they up to?


Meeka Claxton

Claxton couldn’t get a break on Basketball Wives Miami. She was either talking herself into drama or she was getting popped in the head by the always crunk Tami Roman. After not getting an invite to return to the show, Claxton went on to do bigger and better things. She has done a few event appearances here and there, supported charity efforts for things like lupus, continued on with her entrepreneurial work (including the clothing brand “Privileged,” as well as Claxton Productions and Million Dollar Girlz), and of course, has blasted Basketball Wives since leaving, speaking on Laura Govan’s comments that Shaunie O’Neal has ruined the show by putting “hos” on it instead of wives:
“It’s the truth. Besides Jennifer and myself there wasn’t any [actual wives]. I’m rich. She definitely wasn’t talking about me. My man got a championship ring. She definitely wasn’t talking about us. I got the ring. The wives ring.

I agree with her. I felt it wasn’t a true representation of the lifestyle.”

    Meeka did not “talk” herself into trouble or anything else, as you stated. Jealousy and self loathing by the “ho’s” on the show caused the most trouble. Most of those ladies on the show were not married to NBA players, so, they should not have been on the show. It is ironic that Tammi Roman is blasting the show, she was the biggest, bully and big mouth on the show and that cheap shot she took at Meeka, showed how low down she was. Tammi came to the bar with pants on, obviously, ready to jump Meeka as they did back in middle school, most high schoolers have outgrown such nonsense, then told her should would jump her every time she saw her. Tammi should have been arrested. However, it is good to see that Ms Meeka is doing well and still lmarried. As for BBW, I am through with the show.

    MN You must give me a warning if your going to post a HUGE pic of Consequence AKA “Piano keys teeth” all on the screen like that. That pic seriously got my mind together this morning. Im awake NOW…Thanks!!!

  • Alisha21

    Tami that beast of woman really ruined the show when she bullied that girls, Kelly. Meeka is a lot of things but she was right, too many hoes on that show.

  • sunshyne84

    What did Winter say about Lore’l?

  • leowoman

    Well Meeka suuure was trying to get in good with these “ho’s” at one point. I’m sorry, I never cared for Meeka.

  • IG: Taneeka2012

    I think Meeka is gonna forever be bitter about how the Basketball Wives thing played out. She wanted to be buddy-buddy with Shaunie, Jen, & Evelyn. But since her season, now it bothers her that they all weren’t wives.


    That picture of Consquense scared me I wasnt even ready..

  • Ms_Sunshine9898

    So basically what we have is a bunch of women who lucked up and caught the right one, reproduced with him, and then made a career out of being associated with him . . .

  • MsT-mac

    Consequence … those teeth though!!

  • So basically what you’re saying is that all but three of these chicks have no job now that they are off of reality TV. Is Mashonda getting life long alimony from Swizzy? She doesn’t seem concerned about income.

    • Bambi

      Unless you count 40 yo Party Hoster as a job….
      So sad 🙁

  • Momma Dee Tha Q.U.E.E.N

    The only I know is kimbella… Cause of how Chrissy whooped her a$$ of course!!! MN knew that’s what I wanted to see, shy y’all have me clicking most of the way to see her? Lol!!

  • I’m North West BITCHEZ !!

    No post on Somaya R. From the 1st season of LHHNY? Y’all need to catch up with her. She did a complete 180 , for the better !!

    • Alexandrea Desteny Gray-Corujo

      Your screen name… you petty! lol

      • Sunshinegirl

        That AVI!! KMSL!!

  • Ayisha Carnival Queen

    Winter Ramos is so busted and Corny. Kimbella to me always came off ditzy, Meka Clayton was a punk, and Raqi Thunder just couldn’t find her mark.

  • Nessa Fox

    Eww any man that slept with winter ramos is gross.

    • Ayisha Carnival Queen

      I agree

  • Mividaloca101

    Ok Raqi isn’t going to sell that home with that obvious wet leak on the ground….not a good look!

  • Shawndrea Rachelle

    It really sucks that Kimbella will never live that fight down lol

    • tarrilove

      Yes, Chrissy manly as$ punched her in the side of the face (eardrum). Sucker move, she snuck her. Also if you hit someone in ear drum it knocks off the balance. I can’t stand Chrissy. She is so boughetto, if you ever want to know if you dealing with hoodrat friend or new accaintance. Bring up this show and ask who they favorites are. Most decent people will say I don’t watch or I watch as guilty pleasure. Hoodrats love Chrissy and Em because they “lifers” (forever girlfriends,baby mamas,common law wive). It gives them hope for their own jacked up relationship. But over all Kimbella really could fight cause she molly whomped Erica Mena as$. She get points for that forever. Plus the get away was classic! Her and Yandy was on some Thelma Louise.

      • Shawndrea Rachelle

        I 100% agree. I hated Chrissy on the show and her own. She played the mean girl role on LHH but on Chrissy & Mr. Jones she was a over emotional, nagging pain. She’s very weak. I’m just saying it sucks that Kimbella will never live it down, even though she didn’t get a fair fight

      • BahaGyrl

        I’m definitely not a hoodrat of any nature, but I damned sure gave Chrissy her probs for that Kimbella beat down. How do you come to someone party where they are celebrating a new direction in life and come in there with that BS. I would have promptly dragged her behind for my friend just like Chrissy did. Like her or not that was some foul stuff that Kimbella did. You reap what you damn sow!

      • me

        Omg! So true! Most ghetto girls love Chrissy!

  • Neeks

    I always liked Mashonda from when her and Swizz were together and looked forward to her being on the first season of LHHNY. She was too positive for the show anyway..glad she moved on from it.

    Kimsha was too real for the show. She wasn’t with their petty arguments and I guess it was boring for Shaunie.


      Right.. I’m glad woman like mashonda moved on from that because she still has a chance to be involved with something that can make her more money and be portrayed in a positive light unlike other stars who get on tv and sell their souls only to have a short career in the long run

    • Sunshinegirl

      Kimsha looked like she’d beat the ell out of one of those women if they said anything side ways to her!

      • Neeks

        lmao she sure did! That’s probably why none of them really tried her except that wife with the blonde dreads.

  • LesliePPlunkett

    She was rumored to be dating Warren Sapp, not Marvin Sapp.

    • moni

      No, the article is correct. It was Marvin Sapp

      • LesliePPlunkett

        She denied dating Marvin Sapp in several articles and stated that the person she is dating is a football player. Either way, who cares. I don’t watch BBW.

  • tarrilove

    Artest never seemed feminine. Nothing about her said I’m a woman.

    • Ayisha Carnival Queen

      I agree…Also to each their but she always looked raggedy too, never put together.

      • Sunshinegirl

        Always. I’m sorry, but in that world, if you walking around looking the way she did, you can’t expect your man to stay and be happy. It’s all good to stick with the one you came up with, but dang, put some of that Artest money to use because as far as I can tell, I don’t believe he’s broke.
