‘Basketball Wives’ Suffers Massive Drop in Ratings

The feuds were intense during the previous season of BBWLA.

Basketball Wives” is back for season 9. On the previous season, a lot of drama went down. Things went left after OG revealed that Thomas Scott is not Byron Scott’s biological son. It also came out that Cece Gutierrez was the first person to tell OG this. And Byron had no problem confirming it. So when OG and Kristen were in the middle of a heated argument, the information came out. OG was accused of weaponizing it to hurt Kristen. However, the situation only did more damage to the strained relationships between the Scott couples.

Some of the other women on the show felt as if OG went too far. So they called her out and told her that she was wrong to use the information to get back at Kristen.

OG also had a nasty feud with Evelyn Lozada after she said she is friends with Chad Johnson. She was able to show that Chad tried to hit on her. Evelyn and OG’s issues spilled over onto social media. After Evelyn used a monkey emoji to throw some shade, OG accused her of being racist.

OG was also not allowed to share the stage with the other women when it was time to film the reunion. Some of them said OG was too violent and aggressive So they feared for their safety. But given that OG hasn’t been involved in any violence on the show, she said she was being treated unfairly due to colorism.

With the show being so controversial last season, some figured the season 9 premiere would produce strong ratings. However, that is not the case.

    A lot of these reality shows are in serious trouble. The pandemic and BLM has people rethinking what they consume for entertainment. I personally have gotten more interested in scripted programming. There are so many great shows now with black leads.

      True. A lot of these reality shows have gotten boring as h-ll. It’s all been done before. You get something fresh from a lot of these newer scripted shows.

    This is what reality TV does, where some things are staged, most is what happened between whomever. I will be watching BWLA, I love this show and have been waiting for it to come back on. Yeah a lot went on last season, but isn’t this why we watch, I do. So whoever doesn’t want to watch don’t, I’ll be front and center watching until it’s canceled or I just get bored with it.

    Not interested in seeing Evelyn get away with a lot of violence, threat and the show does nothing about it, but made OG do the reunion separately, when she has never touched anyone. Evelyn is toxic to the show and her relationships, view ALL her confrontations. The show never made her own up, I don’t want to watch the BS anymore.

      Yes that was disgusting. Cant believe she stayed and filmed seperately. It was childish. Producers should not have allowed that. Grown women acting like children.

      Thank you, Evilyn has been allowed for a decade to run amuck and act like a wild
      animal and Nostrils didn’t say a word..OG didn’t hit anyone but she could have but Evilyn
      was so angry that Chad would hit on OG that she lost it on National TV..How is this old
      s l u t going to tell her son she slept with any or every professional sportsman for clout and a check for 20 some years..She was slapping her stale STD Ussy on TV like she lost her mind..Nothing beats the look on her face when she realized that Chad and OG
      were Friends and been texting each other for years..Heifer wasn’t married for one month
      but she would call a man she say abused her. Chad would be the last MF I would call if
      he abused me, in fact everyone would know where he’s at for all Saints day for sure..
      Evilyn is an Insecure woman now claiming she is the victim..

    Tami left and last season was an infuriating mess. Ratings dropping was inevitable.

    They probably need to revamp the cast because it’s stale at this point.

    Not surprised at all. Personally, I’m not digging how women of color are coming for one another on the dumbest stuff.
    OG and Evelyn will never be friends so they need stop wasting energy. Instead of wasting court time, take it to the street and duke it out. All of this exchange of words is so lame&tired 🥱. They’ve equally jabbed at each other. OG needs to put the colorism card away because it simply does not apply. To keeo her and Ev apart they kept her in the back all dressed up 😆. She hasn’t earned her spot on a sofa yet. That’s all.

      naw. thats a load of crap. arrogant ppl are hard to get along with when they assume they have advantages (such as beauty) over you. They assumed she didnt fit in so they blackballed her. She didnt come out of her character & maintained her identity as an intelligent strong black woman &they got threatened by that. She wasnt insecure.
