Basketball Wives, Finale: Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada's Big Brawl

Categories: Film and TV
BBWives10a.jpg
This has been a serious season of Basketball Wives--maybe the best one yet. And in true Wives style, the ladies ended this season with a bang. And we mean a bang to the face. But before we get to that, let's discuss the last night's episode as a whole. Suzie Ketcham's trip to L.A. was very informative. We learned that Miami and Chicago are the worst town for groupies. We guess the Windy City and Magic City are just jam packed full of sluts.

Furthermore, Evelyn Lozada and Ochocinco's relationship kind of blows our mind. We're not sure if it's very 2011 or what -- with their meeting on Twitter and having Skype dates (or maybe they're just in Dungeon and Dragons chat rooms). ISn't it nuts that they are pretty much dating and but have never met in person?

And when Jennifer Williams stops by to discuss it, she makes a very good point. When they get married (they are now engaged), does she have to change her last name to Ochocinco? Is she really going to have to have that name on her AmEx or check into hotels as Mrs. 85? That's either the coolest or most embarrassing thing ever.

And before heading to Cinci to see Ocho, Evelyn has her hot 25-year-old trainer stop by to make her dinner before she breaks up with him. Three words come to mind: Get it, girl.

It is oddly fascinating to watch her transition from Miami to the Midwest. We have all been on first dates, and they are always a little strange. But their first meeting goes from sweet to sexual literally in a matter of minutes. It's great to see our girl Evelyn give it up so quickly. We mean, as we learned earlier, girls in Miami are all sluts. Takes one to know one.

We're going to have to assume that Royce Reed won't be back for season three. Why? Well, she was barely invited to Shaunie O'Neal's goodbye happy hour and Evelyn seemed less than excited that she was even in attendance in the first place. And we learned that Evelyn most definitley wont be including her in their trip out to L.A. to see Shaunie. So, yeah, see you later Royce! We hope your friendship with Suzie was worth it.

Jennifer's lip gloss launch party... was it strange, bougie, or both? Definitley both. Have you all ever been to a launch of anything? It's very chic: guest lists, bottle serivce, tons of people, red carpets, etc. But here, it looked more like a basic dinner date than this glamorous launch of her lip gloss. Did we mention that none of her friends knew about the lip gloss line? Strange, so very strange. 

BBWives10b.jpg
These ladies really know how to have a meal and Jennifer's birthday dinner was no different. Of coure, Royce didnt show up, probably because she is on her way out. But this dinner was mind blowing. It started off with Tami Roman (who only makes an appearance at dinner the whole episode), making a tearful speech to the ladies of how much they mean to her. Then, minutes later, Evelyn is spilling the beans how she used to sleep with Tami's ex-husband back in the day and thinks Jennifer's birthday is the perfect place to tell her.

BBwives10d.jpg
First off, why does Evelyn love athletes so much? Could it be their plush bank accounts? And as a fan of this show, isn't weird that Gloria's sister got shit all first season for sleeping with Shaq? Somehow this secret went under the radar for two years, but we're going to act like it's not big deal because mental note-- Tami was married to him at the time. This revelation leads to a big dramatic chat and eventually Miss Roman hitting Eve in the face. We think the line that set her off was Evelyn's "You are a non-mother-fucking-factor, bitch" -- it's what every ex-wife wants to hear from her ex's mistress. Then the episode ends ... to say we had a mild heart attack is an understatement. 

And we're excited to announce that next week is the reuion. And if it's anything like last year's Wives reunion, it's going to be dramatic.

I really think Tami liked Evelyn and when Eveyln confronted Tami with the issue of her sleeping with her husband it blew Tami away.. She wasnt prepared for this and it shocked her, that a friend she just got to like had slept with her husband, and didnt tell her before hand. I guess it made her feel like she was being played. This is a normal reaction. I think Evelyn is sorry for what she did, I think she really likes Tami and she felt bad. Shaunie on the other hand needs to quit causing troubles. She enjoys all this drama u can tell. As for Royce she is the youngest one and she will learn, I dont think she wants to be a mean girl but she is standing up to these women not to push her around. As for Meeka I think shes a liar and likes to talk a lot. She is blaming everyone but herself about hers and Tamis situation. Meeka likes to talk and when confronted she backs away and start to speak in tongues, where no one understands what the fuck she is talking about,.Meeka got her ass whipped by Tami, and she deserved it.. She needed to be up front with Tami when Tami gave her the chance to say what she wanted. Meeka also accused Suzi of starting this shit which is not true. Suzi did tell Meeka to go to Tami and talk with her and get it straighten out but Meeka kept saying she doesnt like Tami and went on bashing her. I just hope the ladies do learn to select their friends with class and character.

OMG!.....Is this show called Basketball Wives? Noone on the show is married but that "Black Blonde" Jennifer. Tami is the only one on the show I like and Royce grew on me, but the others need to get a life. They are old ass GIRLS acting like they are in high school. What kind of example are they setting for young women? Has anyone seen the movie Mean Girls? Well, that is what Shawnie, Evelyn, and Jennifer act like. Shawnie has I think 5 kids and look at the way she is portraying herself. She loves drama. Oh, and Suzie want to kiss Evelyn ass so bad. At first she was so bad ass until Evelyn started hating her, and now you're like the little girl who's trying to fit in. Get a life Suzie and move on cause you look terrible on the show. You really need to watch the show to see how you really look. OMG! Gloria! They need her back on the show! She was like fuck Shawnie I have my own life. She didn't try to prove anything or kiss anyones ass.....Tami is the real star of the show cause she keep it real. Jennifer, UGH...she is soooo stuck up Evelyns ass ( as Royce put it)!....She has no mind of her own. She is Evelyn's shadow. Evelyn's daughter should be ashamed of her mother. Shawnie, just need to continue to raise her kids and focus on them and them only not a damn show about old women who want to be in thei 20's. Hell, she only has her fame because of Shaq. Shit, just be a mother. Oh, one more thing...Evelyn and Jennifer leaked their own damn pictures. I don't care what noone say. They did that shit "C'mon son"!

I think Tamiis right about Evelyn because she was wrong in the way she went about it.  Maybe if she told Tami in a better place and didn’tact like the way she did, she wouldn’t be in the position she is now.  I think Tami and Royce are the realest on theshow and I use to like Shaunie but I think she is just using everyone else onthe show and it’s making her money and I think she told Tami what Meeka saidabout Royce.  Either way, I can’t waituntil next week and although I’ll be at work when it comes on, I can stillwatch it using the DISH Remote Access app with DISH Network.  The app works with my Sling Adapter so I canwatch live and pre-recorded shows and I don’t even have to be at home to doso.  The adapter is normally $99 but witha special promotion with DISH Network, it’s free.  People can find out more information here http://goo.gl/Qsggz and know that I work atDISH, I now it’s legit!

Tami took a cheap shot to hit someone that is sitting down when you are standing up. Not a fair fight. Evelyn can box, funny how women want to beat up another woman, instead they need to beat the crap out of that lying, cheating poor excuse of a man.

I don't think Tammi gave a flying fuck about Kenny when that shit jumped off, she was pissed about the principal of that shit. If Eve was really sorry about sleeping with someone elses husband she would not have taken such a fuck you position about it and then insulted Tammi for being up set about her dishonesty. I would slap the shit out of you tooo!!!! someone obviously needed to bring that bitch back to reality

Evelyn on the reunion show was truly sorry about what she said to Tami. her voice was very sincere regarding Tami.Tami all season hear things that no one said, looks someone gave her. Tami has low self worth. Can not believe Kenny did not pay child support for his girls. How can a man just turnaround and forget about his obligations to his girls???Now he is broke, 10 years latter he finallywants to be a father to his girls. Maybe now Tami can exhale.

Evelyn is a mess, she is phony, she always said she is real and up front, well she wasn't very up front with Tami, if she really felt bad about sleeping with another woman's husband she should have said if from jump street. What goes around comes around.....

I completely agree because with Evelyn on the show drama never ends. Jennifer isn't all that bad she just can't keep hanging with Evelyn she can become a bad person to have on the show too. But, Evelyn... we say DEUCES!!! You need to leave the damn show. Antoine didn't want you in his life and we don't want you in ours so get to stepping. Oh, Ochocinco don't want you either, he just want pussy. You a grown woman, you can figure out his game, unless it's that good. Or maybe youre just that stupid!!

This maybe really sad or really good for the players invovled although I understand good TV but dam, if a little bit of money and some fame will make what looks like well put together woman act this keep grway in my mind is really sad. You all owe each other some I'm sorry's for your !!!!!! behavior. And Eve talk to Tammy the way you did was totally !!!!up. I hope you don't rip what to sowed. Jen find your own way, Shaunie getover it please don't conitue to give rise to !!!!!!! loves company. Royce you are getting there keep growing, Tammy let it go, but I understand why you felt you had to handle it that way, but I wish you have walked away that !!! was not worth it.

My thing is Evelyn is always saying she is such a "Real Bitch", Why not keep it real with this women (Tami) the moment she met her? She went all the way to Spain and allowed Tami to talk about all the cars Kenny bought her after cheting with other women. I wonder which car she got after he Fu**ed Evelyn?? A "Real Bitch" would have spoke with Tami one-on-one from almost our first meeting and allowed her the opportunity to say if she wanted to continue being friends. And most importantly not get defensive.

Why must women act so trashy?! You do not need to show and tell the world you are a piece of trash. Grow up ladies. You are damn near 40 (some of you look like you already are!)

Not all women act trashy. Just so happens that these women are trashy and have never learned better. Money doesn't denote class it just means you can buy stuff.

I did not say ALL women. Obviously I was referring to the ones related to this story. That is what this comment section is for right? This story.

Evelyn's stupid ass deserved to get fucked up. Im surprised that Tami didnt take out all that "hair" of hers. I can't stand Evelyn's dumb ass, all she do is start drama, and somebody need to fuck her up. If I were Tami I wouldn't have tried to grab her, I would of been tearing that ugly ass face up. Shoot, I don't care if Evelyn does see this, because fact of the matter is she a disgrace to man kind and needs to be extinct. She keep fucking with Tami, and that will happen. GO TAMI!!!

Remember when Jennifer's Husband Eric told her that he knew Evelyn before she did and that if she (Jennifer) is taking advice from Evelyn she better watch out she is really going to be in trouble. What do you think he meant by that statement. Who else husband she {Evelyn) has slept with. She wait to hop in bed with Ocho but that is just the type of s--- he deserves. Tami you are above Evelyn and that loser of a ex husband of yours(Kenny), why is it that he can become a better man after he gets with a white woman and become Mr. Mom taking care of their kids .

She could not wait to hop ....(is what I was saying)

Evelyn deserved to get her a-- kicked for telling someone they were not a factor. How cruel!! What happened to humility? If she was sincere (not) she would have humbled herself and apologized for the past not degrade the woman further.

Random comments:

This show was presumably to dispel the negative "pre-conceived" notions commonly held about these women. They were better off operating under a cloud of doubt. They actually managed to come out worse for wear.

The groupies/golddiggers and the the athletes/entertainers who mix with them deserve one another. They are all using eachother.

Tami is off the heezy!

People who don't work should not be allowed to avail themselves to happy hour. No fair.

These women hate the groupies and side order chicks because they were once them on the come up.

Kenny Anderson and Antoine Walker overlapped on the Celtics. Eric Williams was there too. I wonder who else got a turn at Evelyn.

@ Sheela Garcia-If you knew who Kenny Anderson was back then, you had to know he was married. Her feigning ignorance is hard to believe. I dunno.

@Renee 34_Why are you surprised? Evelyn is clearly willing to do whatever she needs to prosper financially. No common man could have insulted her appearance the way Cinco did and still knock her boots? Every time he appeared, he came off as an arrogant, vulgar lout. This is, of course, besides the point to her. But I am willing to wager that if she encountered a lad with more cash, she would suddenly view Ohcocinco's antics as unacceptably disrespectful.

@Golden 636-great title!

Tami that's what I am talking about. If Evelyn was sincere she could have picked a better place and time to speak with you not to mention how she came out of her mouth. Evelyn stop acting like you're in high school(GET OVER YOURSELF) Why is it always the pretty woman that's always so DAMN UGLY inside.

First off why did they call this show Basketball Wives when only one was married one was divorced two was babies mommas and one was just a jump off for years(Evelyn) they should have names this show SCREWING TO THE TOP. 2nd Evelyn couldnt have thought she could tell any woman white black blind cripple or crazy that she slept with her husband and that she was a NOn factor without getting slap in the face WOW she has no class at all and Shaunie and Jennifer need to check and she if their husband SMASHED THE HOMIE

Bride41208

First off this show is improving, but it'll never touch any of the Housewives not by any stretch of the imagination. I can understand why Tami was pissed off with Evelyn and frankly she should be happy the camera crew was there. Shaunie was "messy" too because as soon as the fight jumped off, she took her two faced a$$ right over to Evelyn to make sure she was alright. Shaunie is the biggest instigator on the show. It wouldn't surprise me if Shaunie set Evelyn up to get beat up (by having her confess) because she had a flash back of what it felt like to be on Tami's side.

I would agree Evelyn should of told Tami but at the same time it’s a f*cked spot to be in. When is it ever a good time to tell someone you slept with their husband because there husband lied and said they weren’t married?As far as Evelyn getting beat up I didn’t see that happen.

Evelyn should have told Tammi before, not hang with her like she want to get to know her and their friends. That was just wrong!! Evelyn seems to be a gold digger, dating pro-players; wow that did not make her look good at all. Her relationship with her ex-boyfriend is funny to me. She always spoke about how the groupies were whores and that she was in love and her ex cheated on her, but seems to me she would know better since she is a groupie and has slept with married men or ones in relationships before. I was surprised that she had sex since she NEVER really met Chad before in person just on the computer and through phone calls, it just made her look real easy. It is really sad because from the start when Evelyn met Tammi she was judging her about her looks, hair etc. then to find out that she had screwed her man and never thought to tell her this information. Personally I feel that what happend with Kenny in the past can not be helped, but it was all in the delivery, Evelyn told her and put it out there like it is what it is I slept with him oh well so what deal with it. She should have apologized even told her "I knew I had to tell you, but I really did not know how or when to say it especially since I have gotten to know you I did not want to hurt you". That would have been better instead of saying what she did and how she said it. Just UGLY!!! Nice going Evelyn. As far as the Royce thing is concerned I did not look at it as her playing both sides, I just think she was trying to be cool with everybody. It is so high school to say I am not her friend and you cannot be her friend either, grow up!!! I expect for Jennifer,& Shaunie to put Evelyn in her place since both of them have been married before and knows how it feels to be in Tammi's position. Shaunie was mad at Gloria for her sister screwing Shaq, be mad at her sister just because she is not giving you the time of day o well I will take it out on Gloria. All these ladies need to grow up. Just goes to prove no matter how much money you have ya man will still lie, cheat and when your feeling get hurt all class goes all out the door.

Because of just what you said "Ladyvibe2k" the word "beef" (a man's penis)....allows women to think that their "pu - - y's" are better than the next womens, and it's not. On the one hand, we want to be speical to that one man, but as soon as another female enter the equation, we become territorial of that man and want to put it on him like he's never had it before only for him to go off with the next chick and then you're left feeling like an idiot for thinking that your stuff is the best. It never fails, as soon as a women starts F'king, the whole friendship game changes between women and that's where the envy starts...this goes for men as well. But no where is it more evident than in females. Men can let go a little easier because they are more physical, Women on the other hand are more emotional and it takes so much longer but it can be done. I don;t blame Tammi for saying she doesn't trust women, most women don't trsut each other anyway, sad as it is, but it's all because of the "beef"

Even if Evelyn didn't know he was married at the time, She was wrong for not telling Tami sooner. And then Tami is trying to be all sincere and this chick Evelyn going to come out her mouth like that. I like how she thought she was going to tell Tami that she was a non mutha f-in factor and Tami not do anything. WRONG! That's exactly what she gets. Usually, I think Tami is a bit overboard but not this time. Evelyn should have kept it 100. I felt for Tami that time and she didn't even fly off the handle right away which gave her brownie points. It was a great episode well the last 10 minutes anyway. I think Evelyn might was to think next time before she tells somebody they didn't matter. Ha!

evelyn should have told tami early in the the game. in my opinion that is an indirect way of robbing people of their choices because tami could hav chosen to stay clear of her or respect the fact that she let her no upfront. tami may have looked at her as a fair person, who wants to be in the company of someone that has been intimate with your husband.

Although a mistress can't be help responsible if she didn't know the man was married, that's a totally different issue from two "friends" hanging out and one friends forgets to disclose that....."BTW....I had sex with your ex while you all were still married." If Evelyn told Tami that from the jump, she would have been better able to decided if she wanted to be friends with her. Basically, she allowed a friendship to be developed under false pretenses. I don't think anyone would appreciate being tricked into developing a friendship and mutual respect for their husband mistress, regardless to whether it was 1999 or 2009. Evelyn should have talked to her about it before they even started hanging out. She also could have told Shaunie when she first invited Tami into the group that she had concerns due to the nature of past relationship with Kenny.

Like the writer said, last year Gloria caught so much slack because of her sister's indiscretions with Shaq. Not only did Evelyn play Tami, she also put Shaunie in the middle by not disclosing this from the beginning. It started to seem like Evelyn is just like one of those girls in her tearful description of her break up with Antwoine. I mean Kenny, Antwoine, now Ochocinco. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Good thing security was there to save her.

Tami is the real deal plus she is FREAKINGGORGEOUS!!! For the record Tami, you are the preetiest out of them ALL and DON'T forget that. Please don't look up to that bitch Evelyn. Evelyn is a skank, pig faced BITCH!Sooooo happy Tami punched that big mouth face of hers. 58 can do a lot better than that skank Evillyn! Now that should be her name.Tami your hair looks great long or short and Ihope a good man will come your way.

AMEN! Tami is the only 100% real Housewife on that show. Jennifer is always in Evelyn's shadow and for what, I do not know. She is too intelligent to hang around an uneducated slut like Evelyn's Athlete -Hopping Tail!

This show is amazing. Much better than the "Ignorant Housewives of ALL the cities." I understand where Tami comes from, but seriously? "There wasn't a soul in the world who didn't know that me and Kenny were married." If Evelyn didn't know then she didn't know. Hell, I didn't know. 1999? I was 8 years old and didn't know, and I wouldn't have given a fuck anyway.

Evelyn shoyuldn't have said that one line, but what happened happend, and it is what it is. Get over it! And if she should be mad at anyone it should be Kenny. You can't blame a mistress if she honestly doesn't know. And you have to commend Evelyn for being direct. Even if it wasn't at the beginning she still admitted it. It wasn't initial because Tami was Shaunie's friend, therefore nothing would be said to antagonize her.

Blame Kenny. It's like the whole Mashonda-Swiss Beatz-Alicia Keys thing. At the end of the day the one who should be held most accountable is THE CHEATING SPOUSE -- like Kenny AND Eric. And Evelyn obviously was being honest because she wanted to be your friend and she didn't know you felt that way about her. bury the hatchet and get back to terrorizing the REAL sluts and groupies (and the rival wives).

Nice little artical BTW, to the Author.

I frankly don't even see why Evelyn chose that time to disclose that little secret that no one knew about but her friend Jen, evidently Kenny must have forgotten the affair as well so there was no need to bring it up unless it was to add BANG to the finale or just that Evelyn really doesn't give a flip about who she hurts. I did notice that both Jen and Shaunie seemed to have that "Hmmm" factor after finding out that Evelyn has no qualms about bed hopping with atheletes, and will we ever find out the homie she smashed in Vegas?
