Amid Speculation of ‘Basketball Wives’ Being Canceled, Jennifer Williams Gives an Update

There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding “Basketball Wives.”

Basketball Wives” just wrapped up another controversial season. Prior to season 9, plenty of viewers had a lot to say about the previous season. This is due to the colorism and racism accusations made by OG. OG clashed plenty with Evelyn Lozada. After Evelyn called OG ugly, OG would later show text messages of Chad Johnson hitting on her.

Their issues would later spill over onto social media. So when Evelyn used a laughing monkey emoji on Instagram, OG believed that it was in reference to her. She then accused Evelyn of being racist. In response to this, Evelyn hit OG with a defamation lawsuit. And OG returned the favor with a countersuit for emotional distress.

OG also took issue with not being able to film the season 8 reunion with the rest of the cast. She was told that some of the other women felt unsafe around her. And she couldn’t understand this since she’s never had a physical altercation on the show. So she accused the cast of colorism, saying that she was being treated differently because she is a dark-skinned woman.

Filming for season 9 started off very contentious. The season was very short, and there wasn’t a resolution between OG and the others. In fact, she never filmed any scenes with Evelyn or Shaunie O’Neal.

Now that season 9 is over and it was a short one, many people are suspecting that “Basketball Wives” has been canceled. However, Jennifer Williams clarified a couple of things.

    Yay, Basketball Wives are coming back, please remove OG from the cast if she isn’t going to have clear dialog with the group of ladies on her what the real problem is and for once be clearly open. This season she had more than a few times to be open about what she accused the ladies of and when she was asked to be open and clear the air, she shutdown and played the guessing game. If she’s not going to be open, please don’t come back because I’m totally over her being self-righteous and not seeing the ladies at least halfway.

    Why would they cancel the show for OG? Ratings have dropped for all of the popular shows on VH1. It was inevitable since people don’t watch cable live anymore like that. With Viacom’s new streaming service with CBS, BBWLA will be fine next season, especially if OG doesn’t come back. She makes the show a drag to watch with all her mental issues.

    OG has been releasing recorded covos that has proven that they’re lying on her and trying to gaslight her as well. It’s really sad seeing BLACK women not understand what’s really going on. I hope the ratings continue to go down and eventually it gets canceled. The two people who should’ve had a sit down with OG did not and refused to understand what OG and many others were calling out. They’re trying to save a check instead of righting their wrongs.

    ‘Hopefully’ Jennifer said. That’s cause for speculation right there. But hol’ up…when did Jennifer become Executive Producer? Seriously is she a balla now 🤨?

      No, you’re reading her comment wrong. She said they are returning for season 10 and HOPEFULLY with some normalcy meaning no more filming issues because of COVID. VH1 hasn’t canceled any of their shows. And the BBWLA cast will be filming again soon. I honestly think it’s silly people want a show canceled because one person is delusional and lying about colorism for a storyline. OG even said she herself is colorist. That was every sane person’s cue to stop supporting her.

    OG came on the show and showed her a-s and wants people to kiss it. Nah. She has been racist herself telling a Latina woman that she wanted to be black and Chad wanted a black woman when he’s not even with a black woman right now if I’m not mistaken. He is an athlete who is equal opportunity. OG has low self esteem and sits all day and thinks about racism and skin tone all the time. It’s sad as h-ll that she thinks someone using a popular monkey emoji or Malaysia saying an old phrase like one monkey don’t stop no show after she broke up with Jamal Bryant was about her. She needs some d-mn therapy. A person who loves themselves doesn’t think about race all day and think any and all references to monkeys is a dig at their looks. I guarantee you the ratings fell because people are tired of OG’s nonsense. They need to let her out her contract so people can enjoy the show again. No one should have to work with someone who lies and accuses people of being racist and colorist because she has issues from childhood she refused to get help for.

    Season was trash. These networks and producers need to stop dragging out the same storylines. They need to come harder next season. I was bored most of the time.

    Yeah this season was an insult to my intelligence. I’ve been watching BBW since season one in Miami. Now I tried to give OG a chance and hear her out because of the reunion situation, but I do recall that all kinds of women have been outcasts and bullied on this show. Light skinned women have been bullied. Dark skinned women have been bullied. White women were bullied. And I remember Tami bullying the h-ll out of the biracial woman with the purse incident. This ain’t ever been about colorism. It’s about mean girls forming a clique and having issues with anyone who doesn’t fit in. I could only shake my head after OG said that she also partakes in the so called colorism on the show. I truly hope that she gets some therapy one day. I also don’t like the fact that everyone else on the show can own their wrongs and apologize, but OG never thinks she’s wrong about anything.

    Who said it was canceled? VH1 ain’t canceling Basketball Wives. Even with the ratings drop it remains one of the most watched shows on the network. I read they have a new spinoff city coming out soon too.

    I’m ready for the new season. I wanted OG and the others to get past everything but I get that sometimes that’s just not possible.

    Before you send a comment, go to OG’s page, the producers of the show edited it to make it seem like OG was the bad guy but it was basically everyone else.
