Last week I posted a story about a former L.A.. wife saying it was hell. You can read that in:Ex “Basketball Wives” Cast Member Tanya Young Says: “Being On Show Was Pure Hell !” and Tami Roman: “I Acted A Pure Fool”
There is a petition to end the show. Advertisers are reportedly abandoning the time slot and Star Jones called for a boycott last month after the episode aired where Jennifer Williams was slapped and later pressed charges. Jones spoke out on Twitter with hashtag #ENOUGHisENOUGH. Ratings have dropped from 2 million viewers to 1.7million That is a 12% drop..OUCH!
I have even had my moments with the show. You can read my open letter to Evelyn Lozada here: An Open Letter To A “Basketball Wife” Who Has Not Changed!- Revisited. Reality tv has changed the landscape. You would have to be under a rock not to have noticed that more than half of television programming is “reality tv”.

Last night VH1 showed the reunion show with security being provided to Jennifer. Two gentlemen escorted her on stage with badges on. There was a little twist to the storyline too! Jenn and Evelyn both took polygraph tests. Next week we will find out the results. This is all to stay that the proverbial stuff hitting fan is definitely going on. Now comes word of an open letter pleading with Shaunie to leave The Basketball Wives.
