Colorism accusations caused a lot of debates between “Basketball Wives” fans.
Kristen Scott’s time on “Basketball Wives” was very controversial. She had a lot of family drama. Although she seemingly came on the show on good terms with her father-in-law and his wife-to-be, that didn’t last. Kristen accused Byron Scott of not seeing his granddaughter enough. Plus, her relationship with Cece Scott soured quickly on the show. Cece didn’t feel like Kristen had her back enough as she had tension with the other women. And Kristen didn’t think Cece did enough to motivate Byron to see his granddaughter more. Eventually, OG was the one who exposed the fact that Byron isn’t Thomas Scott’s biological father. Since OG said it was Cece and Byron who confirmed this to her, Kristen’s issues with Cece only worsened.
More drama would ensue for Kristen after OG accused her and others of colorism. On the season before the current one, Kristen attempted to hash things out with OG on the show. However, OG stood firm with her beliefs. And she accused Kristen of only siding with Evelyn Lozada because of colorism. However, Kristen denied this. She said that she didn’t side with OG because she and OG had their own feud. So she felt siding with Evelyn was a natural response. She denied having issues with OG because of colorism.
Interestingly enough, Kristen recently discussed her departure from “Basketball Wives.” And it seems as if producers are interested in bringing her back for Season 11. Plus, the colorism accusations may have played a role in Kristen’s exit.
