‘Basketball Wives’ Recap: Tami Accuses Evelyn of Lying About Domestic Violence

By  | 

Jennifer reels from the revelation of her rumor about Evelyn.

The episode continues with the argument with Evelyn, Jennifer, Shaunie and Tami at Tami’s event.

Shaunie is shocked from the tea, and Evelyn is in tears. She asks Jennifer if the rumor is true. Jennifer begins backpedaling.

“I’ve never f***ing heard this in my life.” – Shaunie

Jennifer suddenly gets the brunt of Shaunie’s wrath. When Jennifer tried to say Tami said it, Tami went off on Jennifer. Shaunie wants Jennifer to just own what she apparently started.

“Own your s***. That’s what I’m saying.” – Shaunie

In her interview, Jennifer stands behind her words and calls Tami a liar.

As Jennifer and Tami continue to go back and forth, Evelyn and Shaunie go off to the side to talk. Evelyn is still in tears but Shaunie is calm. Evelyn says she never even had a conversation with her ex.

Back with the rest of the girls, Jennifer and Tami are still going at it about the rumor. Jackie is sitting off on the side, noting that Jennifer’s on the hot seat.

As Evelyn and Shaunie talk, Evelyn thinks that Tami is straight lying about everything. She also gets shady about Tami’s appearance.

“Tami needs to go to her plastic surgeon and check that neck.” – Evelyn

Eventually, Tami leaves out with Shaunie and Jennifer trails them, and they’re still going back and forth about the rumor.

Everyone recaps the rumor revelation.

The next day, Malaysia is with Kristen and Jennifer doing hot yoga. When their session is over, they recap what happened at Tami’s retreat. Jennifer isn’t sure how Malaysia feels about her after what happened.

Malaysia asks what happened, and Jennifer said she should’ve never had a conversation with Tami about Evelyn.

“Throughout our friendship, neither one of us was a saint.” – Jennifer

Malaysia turns to Kristen and reveals that she doesn’t like her conflict with Cece. But Kristen isn’t sure if she can trust Cece anymore.

At then end, however, Kristen says she can give her another chance.

Shaunie receives receipts from Tami surrounding Jennifer’s rumor.

Tami stops by Shaunie’s to talk about the retreat. Shaunie doesn’t know who to believe and wants answers. So she asks Tami what she knows.

Tami pulls out text messages from their group texts. However, she sees Malaysia in the chat, and Shaunie has questions. Shaunie also sees that Jennifer really crossed the line.

“Jenn didn’t give a s*** about my feelings…” – Shaunie

She also learns that Malaysia may be a key piece into who originated the rumor.

Malaysia gets impressed by her blind date.

Byron and Cece are hooking Malaysia up with Byron’s friend Ron. Ron and Byron used to play for the Lakers. The three of them meet Malaysia at a restaurant, and Malaysia’s nervous to meet him.

She says she is shy and her 3 children come first. Ron breaks the ice, talking about almost wearing the wrong outfit to their dinner. Malaysia says he’s cute.

Cece’s glad Malaysia and Ron hit it off as they plan another date.

Shaunie gets inspired to question Malaysia.

Evelyn is out to eat ice cream with Shaunie. She wants to emphasize to Shaunie that nothing ever happened with her and Shaunie’s ex. Shaunie said she called her ex about it and he laughed it off. He also doesn’t like Jennifer for starting it.

Shaunie also brings up the text messages from Tami, where Malaysia’s involved. However, Evelyn still feels Tami started it all. Shaunie doesn’t care about Tami more than Jennifer in this situation.

They also feel that Jackie could be a key person in bringing all of them together to talk about this.

Malaysia and Ron are on another date, playing racquetball. She admits that she’s very bad at dating.

When Malaysia tells Ron she’s competitive, he says that he would dunk on his grandmother.

Afterwards, they sit down and chat and Ron lays it on thick. Malaysia is smitten with him.

Reggie and Tami are out shopping. Tami uses the time to talk about the controversy at her retreat. She wanted to clear her name by showing Shaunie the text messages. Reggie says that Jennifer was tying to stir the pot.

Reggie said he’s glad Tami didn’t try to hurt Jennifer or Evelyn at the retreat.

Malaysia proves her innocence to Shaunie.

Shaunie and Evelyn invited Jackie and Malaysia out for drinks and Jackie’s nervous about the reason for the conversation.

“We thought it would be a good reason for a ponderosa.” – Evelyn

“Oh s***.” – Jackie

Evelyn begins the conversation by saying that she’s impressed with Jackie’s behavior at Tami’s retreat. Jackie is shocked.

Shaunie brings up the text messages Tami showed her, which had instructions for Malaysia to “put a bug” in Shaunie’s ear about the rumor.

Malaysia said Jennifer did bring it up to her to tell Shanie about the rumor. But, Malaysia said it wasn’t right to do so, and said nothing.

She also feels played by Jennifer and wants to talk to her about it.

“You don’t send anyone tea and don’t pour it, that’s f***ed up.” – Malaysia

Jennifer apologizes to Evelyn and Shaunie.

Shaunie says she wants to have another ponderosa that will include Jennifer and Tami. But Shaunie knows it’ll be hard to have Jennifer and Tami in the same room. But she invites them both the next morning for a breakfast.

The next day, they have their morning ponderosa waiting on Jennifer and Tami to show up.

“We can figure all of this out today.” – Shaunie

Tami shows up to the breakfast, surprised to see Evelyn.

“Ok, here we go. Saddle up.” – Tami

Jennifer also walks in. When she sits down, Jennifer apologizes to Evelyn and Shaunie. Shaunie accepts the apology but doesn’t want to hang out with her anymore.

She also goes off on Jennifer for ruining her 20-plus year relationship with Evelyn. Tami gets angry when Jennifer drags Tami into it, and Shaunie brings up the group text messages.

Malaysia steps in saying she never had a conversation with Jennifer and asked Jenn why she brought it up to her.

Jennifer finally admits that she planned to bring the rumor to Shaunie to take down Evelyn before they repaired their friendship.

Evelyn and Tami clash, and Tami calls Evelyn a liar.

Tami steps in, saying Jenn shouldn’t have tried to make her look bad in Evelyn’s eyes. But Evelyn feels Tami is also culpable in the creation of the rumor.

As a result, Evelyn and Tami began arguing. Evelyn feels Tami had a motive to contribute to the spreading of the rumor with Jennifer.

When Evelyn called Tami a liar, Tami decided to go below the belt. Tami said that Evelyn follows Reggie and her daughter on social media. So she’s convinced Evelyn wants her man and is jealous of her life.

She then brings up Evelyn’s domestic violence past with her ex Chad Johnson. Tami hit below the belt on the subject, calling Evelyn a liar.

“You lied on Chad because you’re a fake a** b****. You know you were fighting that man all along. But since the neighbors saw, now you want to be an advocate for domestic violence.” – Tami

“You’re dirty!” – Evelyn

Tami gets barbs thrown right back from Evelyn, who’s angry Tami called her a liar herself.

“Worry about your health. You look like a crackhead these days. Take a vitamin. Your legs look like two mothaf***in candle sticks burning in the God D*** sun.” – Evelyn

Tami stands by what she said, claiming she ruined her ex’s NFL career with her allegations. Evelyn, on the other hand, says she is glad Tami publicly said these things because now everyone can see how evil Tami is.

Shaunie is disgusted by Tami’s allegations and wishes she could just get up and walk away.

The episode ends with Evelyn and Tami dismissing one another at the ponderosa.

    Tami really showed her hand on this episode. She definitely had a motive by bringing all this up and it was to take Evelyn down. She’s been meddling since Evelyn came back. Think about it. Evelyn and Jackie were actually developing a friendship until Tami got involved in that. Now she’s driving wedges between Jenn, Shaunie and Evelyn. And the Chad thing is something she’s been wanting to say for a long time. She really is the worst person on this show because she lies and says she’s trying to be a good person. No she’s not. She truly sucks. Yet there are many who won’t see anything but what Evelyn has done. Tami gets a pass because the need to hate Evelyn trumps common sense.

      So true! The “proof” she showed meant nothing. You could tell by the way the conversation went that the messages were not the beginning of the conversation.

    I really can’t stand Tami anymore. She swears she’s trying to be a better person but I can’t tell. Sure Jenn was wrong for trying to plan this a year ago, but if you see she changed her mind and is working on her friendship with Evelyn, there’s no reason to put it on the table unless you were really trying to be messy.

    Next week people will see what the real issue with Tami has always been. She has always wanted to be in Shaunie and Evelyn’s circle. For someone her age to care so much about being in a social circle is sad. She’s too old for this messy and pathetic behavior. She’s really going to say someone lied about domestic violence just because she’s upset she could never be in their mean girl squad.

    Man f-ck Tami. She doesn’t want anyone being cool with Evelyn and finds a way to f-ck things up whenever she sees people getting along with her. You can’t tell me she ain’t obsessed. And she keeps bringing up Reggie because she really believes having a man is the ultimate win at life. She’s a pick me. Pick me’s are so f-cked up they will say a woman deserved to get her a-s beat by a man. They stay on that dumb sh-t all the time. She hates that as much as a hoe that she thinks Evelyn is, she can still get a man and rich ones at that. Tami hates that sh-t. And that’s sad as hell to me because in 2018, getting and having a man should not be the end all be all to a woman and her success. Tami is pathetic as f-ck. I don’t see how people like her.

    Let’s say Evelyn did hit Chad, so she deserved to be head-butted? Dude had no visible marks on his body after that night. But Evelyn was messed up. Notice that these same women saying that dumb ish didn’t say this when Tiger’s WHITE ex wife went upside his head with that golf club. Not once did they say he should have whooped her a-s. Meanwhile, they always find a way to excuse non-white women being assaulted. They pulled the same ignorant ish with Solange saying Jay should have beat her down. The hate we have for ourselves and other women of color is really sad.

    I don’t believe there was a motive on Tammy’s part. If so, she could’ve said something when she initially found out a year ago. Furthermore, she didn’t want to hurt Shaunie. Jennifer on the other hand was calculating and strategic. Evelyn doesn’t want to put the blame on just Jennifer bc they’re friends again and the both of them are messy. Evelyn doesn’t like Tammy so she doesn’t care about throwing her under the bus and driving back and forth. Jennifer has no loyalty to anyone and is a LIAR! Tammy was straight foul for bringing up Evelyn’s DV situation. There are boundaries you just don’t cross no matter how low a person goes. Evelyn was also taking low blows and cheap shots at Tammy. These women are truly ridiculous. This is high school nonsense and shenanigans. Smh 🤦🏽‍♀️

    They are doing all this for ratings just pathetic… Tami bringing up that Chad stuff I’ve heard different folks felt she messed up his career and etc… An some folks was lol about the head budding crap. So the storyline is Tami jealous of Evelyn never forgave her about her ex husband. Jen still pressed over Evelyn concocted this rumor. Hen throwing the rock hiding the hand.
    So it’s basically Tami and Jen are trying too take down Evelyn it’s a bad Brady episode Evelyn Evelyn Evelyn
    I wish Royce and Susie was on here I like to see what they been up too

    I wish Tami would get over her hate of Evelyn. It really brings her down as a person. It makes her do some really gutter things and she’s been regressing this season. As far as Evelyn lying on Chad, we all saw the pictures. No one made him do what he did. It’s not Evelyn’s fault. I can’t believe I have to this several years later, but then again, there are people who still blame Rihanna for what Chris did. Misogyny is real.

    I don’t know why Tami had to bring up Chad. That just made her look evil and bitter. There’s so much more stuff she could have used to drag Evelyn than that.

    Evelyn will have the last laugh, after this episode Tammi will be lucky if she gets another season out of bbw wives much less any real roles anywhere else. The world now sees what I’ve always known that Tami is bitter and evil and a jealous woman who is a sh-t starter!

  13. Yeah I Said It!

    July 3, 2018 at 3:03 pm

    Tami knows she was being messy. Lying and saying otherwise is why I don’t trust a word that comes out her mouth. LOL.

    What I see going on is Tami is trying pin this all on Jen and Jen is trying to pin this all on Tami. Both of them know good and well they were in cahoots because they both hated Evelyn at that time (Tami still does). Anyway, I almost lost it after Evelyn read Tami and told her she needed to take a multivitamin. Tami literally had no response after that. She’s been in her feelings about people saying she looks sick and lying about she’s just being healthier now when she still smokes cigarettes. I hope she’s not sick.

    I’m going to go ahead and let rip before I get ready for this here holiday. Did people forget that Tami ain’t sh-t? She’s the same one who stole another woman’s purse and dared her to take it back because she’s violent and gets a high off people being scared of her. She hates Evelyn because Evelyn has not and never will fear her. Her going there about Chad is all Tami. It’s what I expected her to do once she dropped the whole “I’ve grown” act. That pastor was a fool to think he needed to counsel her on TV. Child please. It wasn’t even a whole two days later before she showed her a-s again. She will not learn to sit her miserable a-s down until someone two pieces her. And that’s the truth. I can’t stand her and I see nothing but hypocrisy in those who call Evelyn evil but love them some Tami. She is completely unredeemable this season. She should have left the show because this is the worst she has ever looked. You don’t ever blame a woman for domestic violence. Especially when the man who did the abusing ain’t even have a scratch on him after the woman supposedly “hit him first.” Get this miserable woman out of here and off this show. I’m sick of her.

    Why does Tami think everyone is jealous of her being with Reggie? He’s her sugar baby. No one wants that except Tami lol.

    I liked that Tami and Evelyn were trying to be cordial when Ev first came back. I wish they would go back to that. I like them both better when they can get along. I can’t stand either of them when they don’t.

    Tami in that preview for next week is cringeworthy. So after she admits her part in trying to take down Evelyn, next week she breaks down crying because Evelyn and Shaunie won’t be her friends. I’m embarrassed for her.

    Shaunie is about to fire Jen for the second time. I’m fine with that if they bring Royce back.
