The only thing people were really checking for on the “Basketball Wives” finale was that fight at the end between Tami and Eveyln. We all saw the preview clip 10,000 times and we finally got to see why Tami thought Evelyn needed a five-finger sandwich.
But whose fault was all that hair-pulling and name-calling?
Back in the late ’90s when Tami was still married to NBA player Kenny Anderson, Evelyn dated (and had sex with) Kenny for about six months. Evelyn claims she didn’t know Kenny was married and didn’t even know that Tami existed. Evelyn decided to tell Shaunie and the rest of the girls about this while Tami was away from the dinner table at a birthday party for one of the other wives. Shaunie convinced Evelyn that she should tell Tami about the affair RIGHT THEN. Evelyn did just that. The conversation devolved into a full blown argument and when Evelyn said “You were not even a factor, Beyotch,” Tami lost her cool and basically tried to detach Evelyn’s face from her skull. The two grown women (also moms) had to be separated by the other women and the tv crew.
