This season of ‘Basketball Wives’ has everybody running for cover with folks are getting wine bottles and plates thrown at their heads, people getting slapped across the face, clutch purses to the dome, and women kicking off their shoes and jumping on tables. Except for the slap across Jen’s head, Evelyn has pretty much been responsible for all of the other incidents.
Her ex-BFF/current enemy Jennifer sat down with Shade 45′s Money Team radio show recently to talk about what’s really going on with her former friend of 10+ years. Jenn says she still has no idea why Evelyn is so heated all of the time and that the blog that Evelyn’s so mad about was written before the reunion show and she saw her then without a problem. She also says that Evelyn is “angry” and says in all the time she’s known her, she’s never seen her be so “crazy”, so she has no idea what is going on.
On Her Fight With Evelyn
She actually is very angry. When she jumped on the table…that wasn’t…I don’t know what was going on. We were actually filming at a horse track. We were in the presidential suite okay. We were all dressed up and it just got real ghetto and I’m thinking like, ‘Is this really happening? This is crazy’. Evelyn is really angry and really, I don’t know why. I’m going to be honest with you, I’ve known Evelyn for a really long time and she’s always been somewhat of a hothead, but I’ve never seen her to this extent, all angry and doing all kinds of crazy s–t.
I don’t know if it’s for TV or if she’s real angry. I feel like this: you’re supposed to be so happy, you’re supposed to be getting married, you should not be letting little bulls–t phase you. If you’re really, really happy, then you don’t let little petty s–t phase you. I don’t know what’s really going on with her but that person jumping on top of tables and doing all that is not the person I know. I would never be friends with someone like that. It’s not even my personality. So I’m just looking at her like, ‘You wanna take that Halloween costume off? What’s really going on?’
I really don’t know what the issue is. My thing is this, let me just say this about the blog — when that blog came out I was in Italy and then we filmed the reunion show. So the blog was already out when I saw her in L.A. at the reunion show. I had spoke to her when I was in Italy, nothing, okay. That was in July. Now, we start filming in November and all of a sudden she’s mad about this blog and I’m like, ‘Hold up, I know for a fact this blog came out before the reunion.’
On Getting Slapped
It’s crazy because I’m from the suburbs and I’ve never had a fight in my life. This is not normal. We’re like in our 30s, why are we going around fighting?
On If There Are Any Married & Happy Basketball Couples
People put on a front to the outside world. You never know what’s going on inside someone’s home. It’s like a lot of times, yeah, I do see people that are married and they may look happy but I know some inside s–t going on and I’m like, ‘Okay girl.’ The thing about it is, like these wives, I think they know but they’re kind of in denial. They’re comfortable with their lives and no one wants to shake it up so it’s like, go with the flow.
On Her Divorce From Eric
We are still technically married, we are going through a divorce. We don’t have a pre-nup and it’s funny you said that because I hadn’t really spoke to Eric since he threw a drink in my face and I had a conversation with him for the first time I think it was about a week ago. He apologized over text but I think something like that you should pick up the phone and apologize. It was actually a cool conversation. He said, ‘You know, money was never an issue for me. I want you to be comfortable.’ We’ll see.
On if Eric Tried to Reconcile
Yes and No. One minute it’s like he loves me and the next minute he hates me. It just depends on the way the wind blows that day. I’m definitely over it. We were together for a long time. We had a lot of memories.[…]I’ll always have love for him but I’m not in love with him and that’s two very different things.
