KENYA BELL has had quite a season on Basketball Wives. First, getting shaded over her music videos, then castmate KEISHA N’ICHOLS throwing her under the bus, and now EVELYN throwing bottles at her head.
KENYA chopped it up with Juicy to respond to her who’s style she really jacking, why she’s chosen not to fight back, and responds to those ugly plastic surgery rumors.
Juicy: What was going through your mind when EVELYN threw that bottle at you during dinner?
KB: I’ve been professionally trained to fight thanks to my Dad. I have no fear of any of them and all of their bullying, negativity, and pure haterism. It’s sad that as women, they aren’t supporting my efforts to be independent as a woman and a mother, especially after I spent years helping my husband make it to the NBA and he’s chosen to ruin his life. [The cast] can talk all they want, as long as neither of them put their hands on me, they have nothing to fear.
Juicy: Speaking of your husband, what was the plastic surgery claims about?
KB: He’s decided to try and ruin my life by telling lies to the media about plastic surgery, etc. in attempt to ruin any possibility of me having a career. It seems that the women of basketball wives would be on my side seeing what I’m going through.
Juicy: What made you invite Keisha to your video screening after she threw you under the bus?
KB: Actually that’s the result of editing. My video screening happened BEFORE the bottle throwing incident. I haven’t seen Keisha since she started the fight between Evelyn and I.
KB: I’m a very cultured individual. I’ve worked in corporate America and shook hands with the President. I know the difference between what’s good and what isn’t, so when someone tells me something is horrible and I know it’s not, it’s laughable to me.
Juicy: The girls seem to think you’re jacking they’re style. What’s your response?
KB: In response to me “jacking” their style……I’ve been me since birth, and although I’m younger than most of them (oh wait I forgot, I’m 40 according to them!), ask those who know me the best, I haven’t changed.
Juicy: To set the record straight, when it comes to JEN do you adore her the way the girls claim?
KB: Jen has been the only person in the group that has been consistently nice to me and I appreciate that. Because of that, I consider her someone that I can become friends with. It’s soooo sad that they have a “mob” mentality and because Jen refuses to “join the crowd” and hate me like they have decided to do before they even got to know me, all of a sudden they say I idolize her. It’s their way of trying to make Jen not like me. I’m so proud of Jen for being an individual.
Juicy: What are your current thoughts on TAMI?
KB: I’m very surprised to see the footage of Tami talking bad about me behind my back. I still feel that she has a good heart, that’s why she stepped in between Evelyn and I. Because of the supposed “stabbing” that my husband accused me of, I really didn’t want to have to hurt Evelyn on national television, so I appreciated that. But as a fellow mother of two, it’s very disappointing that she was so mean and hurtful knowing she went through the same things I’m going through on the show.
