Jennifer Williams Says ‘Basketball Wives’ Forced Her To Leave Her Unhappy Marriage
Jennifer Williams is good. Actually, she’s more than good. The reality star’s life seems to have taken a huge turn for the better since departing from “Basketball Wives” and the toxic relationship with her estranged husband, Eric Williams.
“Being on ‘Basketball Wives,’ my life has definitely changed,” Jennifer told Live Life in Style.
Though the show was somewhat of a negative experience, Jennifer says it forced her to make some major life changes—including divorcing Eric. She has since found love in music producer Cisco Rosado.
“I think it kind of forced me to make some decisions that I might not have made if I wasn’t on the show. In regards to my marriage, I was comfortable. It was convenient, thought it wasn’t the best thing. It was what I knew, but at the same time I knew I wasn’t happy.”
“It kind of forced me to make a decision to go out and find happiness,” she said. “I’m in a happy space right now.”
Of course, Jennifer walked away from “Basketball Wives” with more than just one severed relationship. She also addressed the end of her friendship with Evelyn Lozada.
“I also had another friendship that deteriorated…but I’m a firm believer in ‘Everything happens for a reason. If this is the direction that my life is supposed to go in, then I just have to embrace it and keep moving forward.”
She went on to say that she believes conflicts she faced with Eric and Evelyn only added to the public’s ability to relate to her.
“I’m not the first person that went through it,” she continued. “I think when you see someone on TV going through things people want to relate. I’m not the first woman to be in a bad relationship. Every woman has been in a bad relationship, whether you’ve had a horrible boyfriend, or a horrible husband but you can relate to that. And we’ve all had issues with our girlfriends. I think the key is to be honest with your situation. When you have cameras in your face, you may not always want to expose certain feelings. I think it’s important to do it because you never know who’s watching or who can learn from it. If I can save one woman from being in a bad relationship and just convince them to have the courage to go out there and find what makes them happy, that makes me happy.”
Hopefully we’ll get to take a peek at her fabulous life when her new reality show airs.
“Entertainment and reality TV display women so negatively,” Jennifer added. “It’s not all like that. I think it’s very important that women do get together and there doesn’t have to be drama. We can have a good time, sip a cocktail, shop, have great conversation and lift each other up.”
Her last season of “Basketball Wives” ended on such a negative note, we’re glad that she finally found happiness.
