Evelyn Lozada Attacks Kimsha Artest, Defends Shaunie O’Neal

Those “Basketball Wives” surely do know how to make people talk…

If you’ve been tuning in to the snooze fest that is Basketball Wives:LA, you’re aware that Kimsha Artest has been absent from virtually every single episode since the show’s debut. Fans that thought Kimsha would be a rather entertaining addition to the series, have been quite upset over her disappearance. What’s more, as Shaunie O’Neal is the creator of & an executive producer for Basketball Wives, she took the brunt of the blame.

Yesterday a message was posted to Kimsha Artest’s unofficial Facebook page in response to debacle, in which she allegedly had nothing nice to say about Shaunie, Evelyn Lozada or cast member Laura Govan:

I see they cut me off the show and left buckle ass b*tches. shaunie oneal can kiss my ass. she kisses ass to that evelyn b*tch and gets the b*tch who f*cked her husband and cut her a cheque but cant handle a real woman. FOH!

Since Evelyn got word of her name being mentioned in a negative way, she took to Twitter to clear things up:

**CLEARING THINGS UP** @ShaunieONeal does not have anything 2 do with the LA show!If your scenes were edited then that means u were a NMFF!

I think it’s ridiculous 2 place blame on someone if your scenes didn’t make the cut! Everything we say doesn’t! Some more than others.

FYI – I’m not kissing anyone’s ass or vice versa! I been friends with Shaunie for 6 years now, way before BBall Wives existed! #Loyal

I’m not taking shots either, but some of the shit I read is just plain stupid! I’m being a realest & keeping it 100! Blame your self! #Boom

@ShaunieONeal I love u 2! Tired of people blaming u 4 every damn thing that happens! So not cool 2 me!


Since the Facebook posting, Ron Artest has stated that this post was not indeed written by his wife & further that she does not have a Facebook page….Whoops!

Don’t believe everything you see/read online folks!

Basketball Wives LA Recap: Is Draya A Groupie?

Last night the world was introduced to a brand new crop of Basketball Wives in the Los Angeles edition. In just an hour, viewers were able to decipher the real from the fake, the ghetto from the polished & the good, bad & ugly amongst cast members.

We first were able to get acquainted with possibly the most talked about star of the show, video vixen/model, Draya Michele, who has been linked to numerous atheletes & entertainers alike. Ringleader of the bunch, Gloria Govan, becomes associates with Draya after the two share an acting class assignment. Shortly afterward, Gloria gets the lowdown on Draya’s history:

All of the ladies are then given a chance to get acquainted at a dinner meeting. In a rather confusing scene (was this supposed to be them meeting up as friends or as new members of the Basketball Wives cast? It wasn’t staged well), everyone is rubbed the wrong way by LA native Malaysia, who appears to put on airs regarding her lifestyle:

The next cast member the show teaches us to love-to-hate is Tonya, who (to me) seems to be the most pretentious woman on the show for no reason at all. Between her insensitivity toward Jackie’s personal life & her adamant preference in the finest of champagnes, I was completely turned off:

In the show’s finale, the women decide to, again, meet up for lunch (or brunch, who knows?) to get better acquainted. However, things go awry once again:

Things go from verbal to physical when Malaysia makes a comment that she’s never slept with anyone’s husband (referring to the affair that Laura Govan allegedly had while Shaq was still married to Shaunie) & all hell breaks loose:

Overall, the first episode of the season was indeed exciting, however the women of the original Basketball Wives series have set the bar for drama. These new ladies have to bring it on!
