After all of the recent drama on “Basketball Wives” with Nia Crooks slapping Jennifer Williams across the face and Williams in turn filing a lawsuit, people are now starting to take action against the foolishness. A petition has been started to boycott Evelyn Lozada’s new spinoff show and Star Jones is speaking out on the embarrassing actions of these women.
Crooks, Evelyn’s assistant, got into it with Williams on a recent show and it seemed to be the last straw- glasses thrown, tables jumped- people just seem to be sick of it. Check out just a portion of the online petition:
Evelyn Lozada is a bully. The violence on ‘Basketball Wives’ is horrible and disgraceful. This is not a hate petition against Eveyln Lozada. We simply will not support violence. It hurts to see violence amongst women on television for entertainment purposes. It is not OK for women to hit each other on TV.
Just about every altercation and argument on the show has involved Evelyn in some way, shape or form. From the yelling match on the season 4 premier against her former bestie, Jen, to the table climbing and hair pulling in the last couple of episodes, the woman has a problem for reals.”
The petition asks viewers to write and call into Viacom asking to stop the released of “Ev & Ocho,” Evelyn’s spinoff show with fiance Chad OchoCinco.
Jones, former “The View” co-host, took to her Twitter to give her reaction to these women and their antics.
It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH.”
About to put together a group of sisters to finally ‘tell the truth’ about the image of women of color in the media.”
And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn’t have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS! You NEVER give up your right not to have your ‘person’ intentionally assaulted unless you are participating in an agreed physical activity.

Sooo… what do we think?? Have you had enough? Or do you enjoy the drama and the entertainment??
