As expected, much of the focus fell on the crumbled relationship between former BFF’s JEN and EVELYN. Check out “the good, the bad, and the ugly”recap to see what went down and what you can expect next season, if there is one…
The Good: Admittance is the first step to recovery. Just ask TAMI, who openly admitted that her big blow up with newcomer KESHA N’ICHOLS was uncalled for. As TAMI continues to use her anger management issues as a scapegoat for her foolishness, complaints from viewers caused TAMI to apologize to K’ESHA for bullying her in Tahiti. EVELYN also did some damage control, admitting she was “not proud” of throwing the wine bottle at KENYA BELL. Per usual, SHAUNIE swooped in to save the day by promising more positive content for future seasons, instead of the table-hopping, bottle throwing antics we witnessed this season. When it comes to wardrobe, best dressed went to JEN, who rocked a Valentino jumpsuit with a string of Chanel pearls, but EVELYN took the hair award with her fun bun. As for the cheap disco get-ups worn by TAMI, SHAUNIE and ROYCE? Yeah, we won’t go there.
The Bad: JOHN SALLY is known to dig for dirt on each Basketball Wives reunion show, but this time SALLY made it clear he was team EVELYN. SALLY, along with the other women probed JEN about the suing EVELYN’s assistant NIA for the slap but not taking the same action against her ex-husband ERIC WILLIAMS when he aggressively threw the drink in her face last season. SALLY took another jab at JEN by joking that her divorce has been going on for three seasons now and mention of her colored contacts. At one point, we started to wonder if EVELYN paid SALLY off to make JEN look like the fool (seriously, don’t put it past her.) Overall, it was disappointing to see the host of a reunion special pick sides instead of keeping his opinions neutral and doing his job.
The Ugly: We’re not sure who decided to transform the reunion special into an episode of Maury, but fans, and JEN, got an unexpected surprise when JEN was asked to take a polygraph test. It made us wonder – why was EVELYN’s test done before the show, yet JEN just conveniently had to be surprised? Is this polygraph an attempt to end the season with JEN looking like a fraud? All these questions will be answered next season on Part 2 of the special!Related Posts
