Have you ever seen people so scared of losing their jobs in your life? Under normal circumstances that wouldn’t be funny, but these ladies brought the heat on themselves which is why their apologies and promises for the future are becoming amusing at this point.
Evelyn is the latest “Basketball Wives” cast member to claim to want to do better—interestingly, not after seeing herself act a fool on TV but after watching Tami. She wrote in a blog post on her personal site that “A Change is Going to Come,” and here’s what she means by that:
“Last night’s episode was a whirlwind of emotions for everyone. It’s such a sensitive subject for me because I honestly see it from both sides. I’m not here to condemn or condone anyone especially given some of my choices this season, however I will say that once again last night’s episode and all that happened forced me to look at and examine myself in ways that I haven’t in the past. No matter what the situation is, I’m realizing that we as grown women are allowing ourselves to be placed in a position for judgment. I’m confident that I speak for many of us on the show that when it comes to creating a better balance for television, we are all working very hard to do just that. Many of us are getting help for our inner issues and striving to portray a more positive image overall.
Tahiti was just an example of all of us being a true work in progress… Hang in there with us, as we vow to grow and become better!”
You know what they need to do with BBW? Turn it into a therapy show. Remember when the rejects from ‘Flavor of Love” were put in “Charm School” on that show with Monique? That’s what these women need, except on a more serious level. I think one of the readers suggested getting Iyanla Vanzant on the job and I agree. That way OWN, VH1, and these women win. Or they could just disappear from television altogether, much like Tami has disappeared from Twitter. Somebody clearly can’t take it the same way she can dish it out.
