On this episode of Basketball Wives’ Susie Ketcham, and Meeka Claxton meet with Royce and discuss Royce’s newest relationship. Though everyone thinks Royce has rushed into this relationship, she feels as though she is going at her own pace, and is happy with it. But the girls have their reservations about Royce’s new boyfriend and are concerned that he may be a user.
Now Royce and Susie have been friends for a long time, so I can understand Susie looking out for Royce, but Meeka?! Since when did she grow so close to Royce that she feels a need to speak on Royce’s relationship choices?
Jennifer Williams decides that she is going to have a divorce party, even though her divorce is not final yet. So she and Evelyn Lozanda go to a pleasure store to find decorations and goodies for her party. It is clear that Evelyn is a veteran at these kinds of stores because she is showing Jen all kinds of things! This party seems like it is going to be interesting.
Evelyn has a conversation with one of her friends at her shoe store about a radio interview that Jennifer did in Cleveland. During the interview, Jennifer talks about how Chad Ochocinco, Evelyn’s fiancé, is a media whore, and how Evelyn is making a mistake wanting to marry him. Evelyn is upset that Jennifer would say these things and that Jen is not happy for her engagement. Evelyn is struggling with when would be a good time to talk to Jen about everything, but she fears where the conversation may go. Evelyn’s friend tells her that it is evident Jennifer is jealous of her and is not displaying the characteristics of a true friend.
Shaunie O’Neal decides that the girls need to take another trip, this time to Italy. All the ladies are invited except Royce. Tami Roman and Susie are not happy that Royce is not going but they are still willing to go. Tami makes it clear however that she will not be speaking to Meeka while they are on this trip.
Well, we all know Tami, there is no way she is able to keep her mouth shut, and while at dinner in Italy, she asks Meeka what her deal is. She also adds that Meeka was about to get a butt whooping while they were at the polo match. Tami tells Meeka that she is stirring the pot and telling Royce things that the other ladies are saying about her. Meeka denies it, but when asked why Evelyn, Shaunie, or Jennifer’s names were even brought up in a conversation Meeka was having with Royce, Meeka never clearly answers the question. The ladies looked more confused after Meeka started trying to explain. Meeka was clearly caught and trying her best to get out of it, but the ladies were not buying it.
Stay tuned next week
