Former Basketball Wives star, Jennifer Williams has been through a lot with her estranged husband Eric Williams. While their seemingly never-ending divorce continues to drag on and on, Jen appears to have closed that chapter of her life. Earlier this year we told you that Jennifer had finally gone public with her relationship with music industry exec. Cisco Rosado. Now in the form of a blog post, she’s opening up about how the public break-up with her soon-to-be ex-husband, Eric impacted her emotionally and one of the mistakes she made when trying to get past it. Her post in its entirety reads:
“Hey Lucid Lovers!
So someone asked me to write about love. Whoa! I thought to myself, this is going to be interesting! LOL! Anyway, I got to thinking about my love life and the journey it has taken me on. This advice I am going to blog about might be right for you, but it might be wrong for you. All I can do is be honest and hope it helps or at minimum you take something away from it.
When I first started going through my divorce, my initial reaction was I need to date someone. That rebound guy, someone to distract me from my real feelings. When I got that, I realized it was a temporary fulfillment. What I really needed was to heal my soul and my heart so I could genuinely be open to honestly and whole-heartedly truly loving again.
Love can be the must amazing feeling in the world and the most hurtful as well. It truly is a funny thing! I feel the key to finding love is to be happy with you first. Make sure you are at a place in your life where you are content and your heart is open to love. Love requires work and compromise. I also feel like when you least expect it, love will knock you over. Focus on yourself; work, family, friends and whatever else makes you happy and when God feels you are ready he will bring you the perfect companion.
Trust is a huge component of making a relationship work. It is vital not to bring your past experiences of a bad relationship into your present relationship. Everyone deserves a fair chance until they do something to make you give them the side eye. Ladies, you know what that means without me going into detail.
Talk, talk and more talk! Communication is key to a thriving, loving, healthy relationship. Nowadays everyone gets caught up in texting. A relationship cannot survive when a “new message” alert is your lifeline. Pick up the phone and listen to each other’s voice. You cannot feel true emotion through a text and things can be taken out of context. Even when you are in a long distance relationship try and find time to Skype or Face time if your mate is not in the country. I am an advocate for long distance relationships. Absence makes the heart grow fonder and when you see the person you don’t take them for granted.
The important thing about love is to be honest and keep it fresh. Don’t fall into a routine. Surprises are always nice and they let your mate know they are appreciated maybe a love letter, a bubble bath or some home-baked cookies. Just a little something to put a smile on their face!
And ladies remember how you got him is how you keep him! So with the flowers soon blooming, I hope you all SPRING in love..
‘Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.’ – Mother Teresa
Love and Lucid kisses,
It would make my heart so warm and fuzzy if 40-year-old Eric Williams would just grow the eff up already. It’s not like I wasn’t already done with him after he pulled the ultimate sucker move throwing a drink on Jen at the end of season 3 of “Basketball Wives,” and I was double done with him when he thought Chad and Evelyn’s domestic altercation was a time to take low-blow shots at Ev, but every time this clown gets on Twitter I’m reminded of why one should have to make a pledge of non-stupidity just to have an account.
For some reason, he thought a Twitter mention was the correct way to get Jen’s attention so they can proceed with the longest divorce in reality TV history ever. If you have no clue how much of a bad idea that is, check out the back-and-forth that the YBF caught.
Can we pause for a minute at the knot emoticon this fool came up with?
Every time Eric opens his mouth, whether in person or online, I have to question Jennifer’s motive for marrying this man. It’s hard to believe he has, or ever had, any redeeming quality beyond his money because his immaturity level is startling. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted two people who I don’t actually know to finally be able to say they’re divorced more than these two.

VH1 has just released a statement saying that Chad’s elimination from the Miami Dolphins isn’t the only thing that’s being cut. The network posted a response to the pair’s domestic disturbance over the weekend on their site saying that they’ve decided never to air the couple’s upcoming reality show:
“Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series ‘Ev and Ocho’ from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it.”
Looks like the couple’s antics have completely caught up to them this time and VH1 is learning all reality can’t be planned. If Chad and Evelyn’s relationship couldn’t withstand a condom receipt, it certainly won’t endure unemployment and irrelevance.
Chad Johnson may be out of jail on a $2,500 bond but his troubles are far from over. The Miami Dolphins have cut the wide receiver after news of his domestic altercation with his wife Evelyn Lozada became public over the weekend.
Yesterday, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin told reporters that he planned to immediately address the situation and that he did. Why the team decided to share the news via Twitter I can’t say, but sure enough a message from the @MiamiDolphins Twitter handle hit the web at 6:16 pm yesterday, reading:
“The Miami Dolphins have terminated the contract of WR Chad Johnson.”
How Chad will respond to the news is unclear. During the domestic dispute with Evelyn Saturday night, Chad was reportedly heard yelling, “I don’t give a f—! I don’t give a f— about my career!” He may give a eff about the potential year he could spend in jail as a result of the argument and the $1,000 fine. Considering he’s now unemployed he probably needs to watch every penny. That’s if he’s found guilty of the misdemeanor domestic-abuse charge. Though the initial story to hit the press Saturday was that he head-butted Evelyn during a heated argument over a condom receipt she found, he says that she was the one who head-butted him. However things went down, the Miami police says it was pretty serious.
The argument began as the couple, who married on July 4, returned to their Davie home after shopping, the report states. In the trunk of the car, Lozada found a Walgreens receipt for condoms. The quarrel escalated, ending with the head-butt.
“She has a pretty good-size laceration on her forehead,” said Davie police Capt. Dale Engle.
Lozada said Johnson gave it to her, while Johnson countered that he was actually the recipient of the head-to-head blow. Cops apparently believed her side of the story, and arrested Johnson on battery charges just before 9 p.m.
Johnson was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident, police say.
Johnson was taken to jail, and had to wait until the next morning for a bond hearing, appearing before a Broward judge at 8:30 a.m. His bond was set at $2,500, and he was ordered to have no contact with his wife.

Slowly but surely, reality television has dominated the airwaves, and we, viewers, have witnessed our fair share of relationships unfold and crumble under the sallow lights of television-fame. The constant exposure, desire to intrigue and need to create “authentic” moments often causes gigantic rifts between friendships and couples…even within iconic relationships. Jon & Kate, Britney Spears & Kevin Federline and Hulk & Linda Hogan have all fallen victim to the side effects of lime-light living, but they aren’t the only ones.
Diary Presents Brandy: Special Delivery: Brandy Norwood & Robert “Big Bert” Smith
The Grammy Award winning songstress, Brandy Norwood began her entertainment career as a 14-year old on the short-lived sitcom, “Thea” in 1993. Since, the actress/singer/dancer launched a successful singing career, which is where she has garnered the bulk of her success. While working on her third studio album, Full Moon, with Dark Child producer and composer Robert Smith, she became romantically involved with him, and eventually pregnant. In lieu of the pregnancy, the pop star and her “husband” decided to televise their love and home life on MTV’s Diary Presents Brandy: Special Delivery, where she documented the final months of pregnancy and birth of her daughter Sy’rai. Not long afterward, the two announced their separation, and later came clean about NEVER having been married in the first place. The nuptials were staged to help Brandy preserve her public image.

Another Day, Another NBA Child Support Suit: Woman Claims Eric Williams Fathered Her Child While Married To Jen
Eric Williams is certainly no one’s favorite man, particularly after we saw him throw a drink in Jen’s face at the end of the third season of “Basketball Wives,” but his rep is going even further in the trash after allegations surfaced that he has a secret love child roaming around.
Tavia Serena Cannon reportedly filed a Complaint for child support in Pennsylvania last week, claiming that she had a child with Eric in October 2011. That would put the baby’s conception somewhere around January or February of last year meaning Eric was still married to Jen while he was supposedly implanting his seed in this woman. Jen didn’t file for divorce from her NBA baller husband until June 2011, although if I’m not mistaken from “Basketball Wives” footage she was doing her long before filing those papers as well.
Either way, the baby is here now; Tavia says Eric is the father, and since she claims to only make $300/week babysitting, she wants Eric to start handling some of their child’s expenses, like medical coverage.
Sources reportedly told TMZ Jen is shocked by the news and had no clue Eric, who is technically still her husband as their divorce is still pending in a New Jersey court, had fathered a child. To be fair, he may not have known either, but he definitely does now. His reps didn’t return calls to TMZ but hopefully they’re responding to Tavia before this gets a lot uglier than it already is. When will these men learn?

We’ve watched you transform from the docile and soft-spoken woman (and minion to Evelyn) whom we were introduced to during season one, to the absolutely fabulous, outgoing, fashion-forward, business-minded woman we see before us today. As a fellow introvert who has recently broken out of her shell, I say, “Go girl!” You have gracefully emerged from the shadows of your former NBA playing soon-to-be-ex-husband and your insane ex-best friend and are truly standing on your own two feet, as your own woman. Watching you come into your own and watching you be so free from the drama (at least mentally) is truly liberating. As you learned pretty quickly, the people around you are not always happy for you and ready to embrace the new you, especially if you’ve changed for the better (and realize that they’re not good for you).
We shuddered last season as we witnessed Eric act out by throwing a drink in your face as if he were one of the chicks from “Bad Girls Club.” I try my best to refrain from swearing, but it’s like, come on, son! That was a B.A. (b****h a**) move. There’s no other way to properly describe it. I remember sitting and wondering, “What on earth would make a man do that to his wife on national television?” The only thing that I could think of is that it was in an effort to humiliate and break you down. One, because you had finally stopped sitting around waiting for him to change his ways and began taking steps towards filing for divorce. Two, you didn’t appear to be all sad and solemn about it. Yeah, you had your moments, but you cried, sucked it up and kept it moving. You didn’t allow that situation to break you. Instead, you put your efforts into your business, which like you said, you’ve built from the ground up with your own money. You were becoming known as Jennifer Williams, the reality television star as opposed to Jennifer Williams, the wife of former NBA player Eric Williams. It didn’t matter whether or not being married to him got you there because honestly, if it weren’t for “Basketball Wives” most of us wouldn’t even know what the hell a Eric Williams was anyway! No, seriously. Google him…exactly.
It seems as if the finale of season three was only the beginning of the adversity that you would face because season four was outright ridiculous. Most of it surrounded your beef with Evelyn, and I still can’t seem to figure out how a friendship that lasted so long could go so ridiculously wrong so fast, but whatever, that’s neither here nor there. Season four was known as the “Let’s gang up on Jen” season. I personally believe that friends fall out all of the time and it’s up to them to decide whether or not they’re going to work it out. Her hitting you with her clutch and constantly throwing threats was a bit extreme, but what I find more ridiculous is the fact that the moment you and Evelyn fell out was the moment a few of your cast members who had absolutely nothing to do with the situation began to subtly throw shade your way. What I find even funnier is that they clearly decided to side with Evelyn but tried to claim neutrality in the whole fiasco. *side eye* Shaunie doesn’t exactly surprise me because the more controversy arises, the higher the ratings, and the fatter her wallet gets (Well, not so much anymore). She’s the madame of the “Basketball Wives” enterprise and has thus far exploited the hell out of any and every ounce of friction between cast members. It’s clear that she’s childishly taken sides with Ev. Tami is the one who is a little shocking and pathetic in this matter since she was just fighting with Evelyn a season or two ago for sleeping with her ex-husband and being indifferent about it. How she can find it in her to take sides is beyond me. But then again, when people want to be liked or in the “in crowd,” they lose themselves. Real women don’t claim to be “neutral” but then make snide remarks the way that she has all season. Get right or get left, Tami. You’re either hot or cold, black or white, but you my dear are what we call straddling the fence at its best. Then, there’s the famous slap from Ev’s assistant who to me seems as if she was just seeking to get her 15 minutes of fame. Too bad it cost her criminal charges and a lawsuit. No one should be subjected to abuse like that, and if pressing charges gets a few folks hot under the collar, enough to boycott folks, so be it.
You are making strides towards bettering yourself and we say “Good for you.” Many people fail to realize that when you go through major life changes such as a divorce there are some things about you that do change. From the way you value yourself to the people you want around you. You haven’t always been a positive cast member on the show, but I do believe that your story (in some parts) as it played out publicly can serve as motivation for other women because through adversity you still manage to come out shining like new money (while others just looked more and more crazy). All of the negativity surrounding you doesn’t appear to have broken you and that is an accomplishment. Independence fits you well, honey! Do your thing girl, allow the haters to be your motivators because it appears that the more successful you become both in your sense of peace and with your business ventures, the saltier they get. So don’t fight with your hands, fight back by leading a positive lifestyle because success truly is the best revenge.

A celebrity sex tape is typically an amateur pornographic video recording involving one or more celebrities which has been, intentionally or unintentionally, made available publicly. Such videotapes are often released without consent of their subjects and could potentially damage celebrities’ careers. However, in recent years many celebrities have benefited from the publicity of the release of a sex tape. The release of Paris Hilton’s sex tape in 2003 as well as Kim Kardashian’s sex tape in 2007 brought them to a new level of fame, leading to magazine covers, book deals, and reality TV series. Check out these 7 celebs who had a little too much exposed to the public.
