Over the weekend, NBA superstar Chris Paul aka CP3 married his longtime girlfriend Jada Crawley in an intimate ceremony held here in Charlotte, North Carolina. The couple brought out the stars indeed, Black Sports Online has the details:
At 6 P.M. sharp NBA SuperStar Chris Paul married his fiance of 1 year Ms Jada Crawley. The couple married in Charlotte, North Carolina and have a 2 year old child together.

The wedding took place in Chris’ home state; North Carolina–where Chris & Jada met in 2003 while he attended Wake Forest University.

After Evelyn Lozada claimed to be leaving Basketball Wives via Twitter recently, following VH1 posting a rumor about her sleeping with Terrell Owens (despite being engaged to Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson), fans of the show were in a frenzy regarding the fate of the show’s forthcoming season.
It has already been confirmed that Meeka Claxton won’t be returning to the show (with a big question mark on Royce’s role reprisal as well), thus a new cast member or two will more than likely be introduced to the mix, leaving a major void to be filled with Tami & her drama.
Who will she attempt to fight now?
In an interview last week with The Morning Riot radio show, Tami answers that question to a certain extent, as she discusses Meeka’s absence next season, as well as the possibility of leaving the show with Evelyn:
Would you watch Basketball Wives without Tami & Evelyn? Is the series getting old?
Some people take things too seriously, reality television being one of them.
Arguably, Basketball Wives is one of the most staged “reality” television shows in recent history, yet people continuously tune in for the drama, the fashion & the elitist mentalities. I say this to emphasize Meeka Claxton’s role on Basketball Wives, Season 3.
It was evident that Meeka was merely cast to the show for her own reasons (publicity for herself & her company with fame as the ultimate goal) & for purposes of ratings (a new girl = new drama). So I’m not sure why the crowd at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta took it upon themselves to humiliate her over the weekend.
Once Meeka was handed the mic at the CAU block party (held annually in commemoration of Ludacris’ Luda Day weekend), the crowd didn’t greet her with a warm reception:
Per usual, Meeka dismisses them as “haters”, but overall this was really juvenile & stupid. I think the lines between reality & fiction have become blurred. Honestly, did she really deserve that?
