‘BBW’ stars Shaunie, Evelyn and Tami cover UPSCALE Magazine

Posted by | Cyrena Rose

The fifth season of VH1’s Basketball Wives kicks off in August and cast members, Shauni O’Neal, Evelyn Lozada, and Tami Roman cover the July issue of UPSCALE Magazine!

In the mag, the women dished on their off-screen drama and issues in their own personal lives; the ladies also explained why Royce Reed and Jennifer Williams were fired, the public backlash they received, Evelyn’s crazy domestic violence case and much more.

Check out some excerpts of their cover story:

On last summer’s petitions posing the possibility of loss of advertisers:

“[It] was so difficult to deal with when it was airing and when it was all over with. I remember saying, ‘what the hell just happened? This isn’t us; we’re mothers, we’re businesswomen. We have to be smarter. We have to represent ourselves a lot better.’”

“By the time we did the [season four] reunion we all agreed enough is enough. We had a group talk and were all definitely on the same page. We heard the messages loud and clear. We knew we had to do better. It was an eye opener.” —Shaunie O’Neal

“People were connecting my behavior on the show with the incident with Chad. They were like, ‘Well if she acts like that on the show, then I’m sure she acts like that at home.’ I’m a totally different person at home.”—Evelyn Lozada

“I was very depressed last summer. I was dealing with some things that were going on with my mother and everything that was happening with the backlash from the show. I started eating everything under the sun. I blew up to about 190-ish pounds. I’m a tall girl, so I wear it well, but I was bordering between [size] 14 and 16 in my clothes.”—Tami Roman

eveOn the decision to cut Jennifer Williams and Royce Reed from the series:

“It was a chemistry thing. It just became awkward to film or even come up with a conversation. It just wasn’t working for TV.”
—Shaunie O’Neal

“Royce has been a non-motherf—ing factor for the last two seasons, so it just didn’t make sense anymore. And as for Jennifer—Shaunie is [being] nice but I’m going to tell you this—we don’t condone the incident with Jennifer, but we do reality TV.  You know something’s bound to happen when you put a bunch of women together and there’s a lot of behind the scenes conversation and gossip going on.  So when Jennifer went on this whole anti-show campaign, it was a little tough for us as cast members.” —Evelyn Lozada

On the negativity of BBW and the consequential loss of advertisers:

“[It] was so difficult to deal with when it was airing and when it was all over with. I remember saying, ‘what the hell just happened? This isn’t us; we’re mothers, we’re businesswomen. We have to be smarter. We have to represent ourselves a lot better.’”—Shaunie O’Neal

“People were connecting my behavior on the show with the incident with Chad. They were like, ‘Well if she acts like that on the show, then I’m sure she acts like that at home.’ I’m a totally different person at home.” —Eveyln Lozada

“I was very depressed last summer. I was dealing with some things that were going on with my mother and everything that was happening with the backlash from the show.

I have learned new things through the blog post. One other thing to I have seen is that typically, FSBO sellers can reject anyone. Remember, they’d prefer to never use your providers. But if you actually maintain a gradual, professional relationship, offering help and remaining in contact for around four to five weeks, you will usually be capable of win an interview. From there, a house listing follows. Thanks

When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!|
