OG Takes Issue with How the Recent Episode of ‘Basketball Wives’ Was Edited

OG stands by the colorism accusations.

Basketball Wives” star OG has a lot of fans talking about the recent episode of the show. This is due to the fact that she had a very controversial conversation with Kristen Scott over colorism. During the reunion last season, OG said that she felt as if she had been treated differently by the other women. And the reason behind that, in her perspective, was colorism. This was something she felt even more strongly when she was not allowed to film on the stage with the rest of the cast. Instead, she had to film in a separate room with her boyfriend Kwame Alexander.

On the recent episode, Kristen told Evelyn Lozada and the rest in Evelyn’s rented mansion that she planned to go speak to OG about the colorism accusations. She wanted them to find common ground. And she felt like it was important to hear OG’s side.

However, the conversation wasn’t productive. And both women believed they weren’t really being heard by the other. When Kristen said she didn’t experience any colorism in the group despite also being a dark-skinned woman, OG told her that she wouldn’t have the same experiences because she had more slender features.

Well, sometime after the episode aired, OG took to social media to make it clear that she wasn’t happy with the way the episode was edited.

    Viacom is going to have to do something about this sinking ship. The ratings are horrible.

      OG is right Kristin has curly “good” hair and European features, ie;slender nose and lips. Same as Jennifer. The pretty for brownskinned” type Kristin knew exactly what OG meant. The issue is OG is dark with African features and not timid, that was threatening to Evelyn and Shaunie.

        European features? Really? Have you ever been to Europe? How about Africa? That whole “beauty is based on European standards” narrative is tired. And it’s usually said by people who don’t get out much and explore the world. Go to Europe and you’ll see that they don’t all have the same features. Some of them have big, wide noses. Eyes far apart, etc. They don’t have one set of features. No race does. Even white people in America don’t all have the same features. And guess what, people in Africa don’t all share the same features either. There are Nigerians who have don’t have the same features as OG. Her features aren’t more African than the rest. In fact, there are women walking around in African countries right now with features that mimic Jennifer and Kristen’s. Are they less African to you? Africa is very diverse. And so are Black women. We don’t have the same hair texture, and one texture isn’t “blacker” than the next. The fact that y’all lump all Europeans in one box and Africans in one box is disturbing.

          Thank you. I think the most eye opening thing to me in this conversation is how they are arguing that Africans only have a certain type of features. This is so far from the truth. The beauty in that continent is vast. They have all kinds of features in Africa. You can’t really scream colorism and featurism when you don’t understand how diverse people in Africa are.

          A lot of Black Americans sound ignorant as h-ll while defending OG. They really think that people in Africa all have the same hair texture and facial features. It’s so embarrassing. There are African women walking around with Kristen’s hair texture and facial features. They think they sound pro-black but they actually are being anti-black putting everyone of African ancestry in one group. When I saw that person say Jennifer has European features I wanted to throw something across the room.

        OG is self-loathing. And she put herself in the position to not get along with most of her coworkers by having an awful attitude. She also started picking at Kristen the first day they filmed. Did she ever apologize for weaponizing an adoption? Of course not. She’s never wrong. Also, African women can have “slender” features. And many do.

    OG definitely lost me when she said that Kristen didn’t experience colorism because she has “Western features.” Umm, having “slender” features doesn’t keep dark skinned women from experiencing colorism. I watched a close friend of mine go through it for years and she has features like Kristen. The fact that OG keeps questioning everyone else’s blackness is not sitting well with me.

      OG’s colorism claims are bogus. The most colorist thing said about her was said by Cece when she said OG is ugly and looks like a man. But OG never accused Cece of colorism because she likes Cece and chose to weaponize colorism for the people she doesn’t get along with. Also, it was Tami who made fun of her Nigerian heritage. But again, no colorism or racism accusations for the people she likes.

    I am so tired of this colorism conversation. It’s obvious that these people will never agree on it, so what’s the point of dragging it out?

      OG is not making any sense. She is looking for something or someone to blame for what she’s percieves as years of feeling less than. She needs to seek professional help to work out these colorism issues. This started years before Basketball Wives

    OG , needs to stop This is a serious matter and listening to her reasons doesn’t make sense. I feel she’s making it up to be on the show! OG needs to go sorry… Please let her go ……
