No one wants Evelyn Lozada to take responsibility for her actions. First Shaunie O’Neal refrained from calling Evelyn a bully outright instead blaming her ‘strong personality’ compared to Jennifer Williams’ more timid personality. Now Basketball Wives star Tami Roman wants to blame vH1 producers for casting them in a negative light.
‘[...] Call out VH1 because I will join that battle. Why call for several people to be unemployed that really have nothing to do with the creative process?”
Tami continued, “I come with my storyline and things that I want to introduce and low and behold what they want to show are those dramatic moments. There is more to us. I have thought about leaving, I would love to see a season 5 where VH1 and Shed Media are called out to show more positive things that we’re doing and show us how we are 90 percent of the time, instead of how we are 10 percent of the time. I would love to see the brand in and of itself go out on a more positive note. What they are seeing is a part of my personality. I’m not trying to take back my actions, but that’s not who I am all the time.”
On the topic of Evelyn’s most recent behavior and the subsequent boycott, Tami stated,
“I can’t judge Evelyn [Lozada]. She has to work toward change. People don’t give us the benefit of the doubt or take that into consideration. Did Evelyn need to run over the table? Maybe not. Did Nia have to go over and slap Jennifer? Maybe not. I still don’t believe that warrants this big all-out movement against women who are really just showing our lives.”
Basketball Wives isn’t the first reality TV show to edit based on what will drive ratings. It is up to the producers to tell a story and the actors to provide the content. 10% of the antics we have seen is already too much for women of their age and caliber but change won’t come without control. Sadly Shaunie doesn’t have enough or chooses not to exercise her power. Without control these women are subject to the whims of others.
