Basketball Wives is slowly but surely losing it’s footing amidst a growing boycott heralded by Alexis M through change.org. The petition began after viewers saw Evelyn Lozada stomp across a dinner table in an attempt to attack her ex-friend Jennifer Williams. Since it’s inception the petition has garnered nearly 25,000 signatures.
In the latest update per the site, Summer’s Eve has pulled all of their ads from BBW AND Lozada’s upcoming wedding special with fiance Chad Ochocinco, ‘Ev & Chad’. Reportedly another sponsor has pulled out but their name will be announced next week.
To make matters worse, Basketball Wives’ ratings is slipping from a season 4 debut of 2million viewers, followed by an average of 1.87M viewers and now 1.74m, per Futon Critic. If the numbers continue to drop things won’t be looking good for Tami Roman and the remaining cast. Of course executive producer Shaunie O’Neal is already working on a ‘basketball’ movie. Will the boycott hurt Evelyn’s other ventures?
