VH1 BASKET BALL WIVES JENNIFER WILLIAMS SUES OVER SLAP! (GET THE SCOOP)
Basketball Wives? is doing the most to get their ratings up this season including orchestrating dramatic twitter episodes between Royce and her man and perpetuating more beef between the girls by having them do post-show blogs.? Now,?the latest report?is that most of the?cast?plans to boycott the reunion show unless Jennifer Williams does not attend.
Earlier today, Jen and her?lawyer?held a press conference in New York to discuss the pending?lawsuit?that she filed against Evelyn?s assistant Nia Crooks after she slapped her in Monday night?s episode which was filmed back in January. She tells the?NY Daily News:
Violence used against any?person?is wrong but when a woman hits another woman it sets a horrible example for young girls everywhere. I? choose to use the justice system to fight back.
I didn?t?watch the video?for a long time because I lived it. It?s disturbing. It?s humiliating. I get?anxiety?just thinking about it. ?She hit me with her open hand on my cheek. I?ve never been hit in my life.?
Earlier this week, Jen also blogged about the episode:
?Here?s the thing: on my show some of these women take pride in showing their a? in the most compromising way.? These females have a point to prove and will do or say anything to be a ?reality show star.? Fame is a powerful drug and some will go any length to achieve it.? I am a grown woman and I have never had to fight someone to prove my point, I use my vocabulary and brain for that.? Mature woman should be able to communicate their differences without violence.? Using your hands to express yourself is absolutely WACK!!!
?I will never forget that day at the racetrack, I didn?t go there to fight so that was the last thing I expected to encounter.? All I remember was the nonsense that took place.? The assistant/gofer decided to be in full action with her monkey see monkey do self as she snuck a slap from behind.? You are a coward if you catch me off guard while sitting down and not to mention a bully!? Then the president of the NON Factor T-shirt Enterprise thought that jumping across the table like a demon would be a good look for the young women in America that watch the show. The horses?racing?around the track were more civilized than some of the woman with me in the presidential suite that day. I swear I still don?t understand why someone would want to act so ridiculous on national television but I guess some will do anything for fame.?
Nia also gave a?few exclusive interviews?and was talking smack about Jennifer and how she stood up for her and they became friends after someone who made an appearance in the first season wanted to fight Jen, however she recently did an?interview?and sounded regretful about the whole situation:
?I?m not going to lie, I did regret it after it happened. I actually prayed on it. It bothered me that someone I?love?and someone I know, became someone I use to?love?and someone I knew.?
It?s time for some of these?s girls to throw in the towel.
CHECK OUT THE RECENT INTERVIEW I DID W/ JENNIFER AND SEE WHAT SHE HAS TO SAY ABOUT GETTING SLAPPED!
Jennifer Williams’?“face-slap” lawsuit is the giant shovel digging her reality TV grave … TMZ has learned … ’cause we’re told “Basketball Wives”?producers are PISSED!
Sources close to production tell TMZ … Williams was already on thin ice with the show — even before her?slaptastic showdown with Nia Crooks?– but now that she has filed a lawsuit … that ice is breaking FAST.
We’re told producers think the suit is BS … claiming Jennifer never had a problem with fighting before and insist this is a desperate publicity stunt to keep her storyline interesting — securing her a place in season 5.
But a source tells us the stunt is not working, adding, “Filing broad lawsuits when you are as much to blame for the drama, is not the way to get your contract extended.”
