Affairs, unwanted guests and just a whole ton of drama
First let’s just say we are loving the fact that the trifecta that is Shaunie O’Neal [ex-wife of Shaquille O’Neal], Tami Roman [ex-wife to Kenny Anderson] and Evelyn Lozada [ex-fiancé of Antoine Walker] is back together! It has brought the life back to Basketball Wives.
In this week’s Basketball Wives, Evelyn books the ladies on a Palm Springs weekend getaway. Evelyn, Tami, Shaunie, Jackie Christie [wife of Doug Christie], Malaysia Pargo [ex-wife of Jannero Pargo], and newest cast members Bonnie-Jill Laflin [girlfriend of Kareem Rush] and Cristen Metoyer [girlfriend of Joe Crawford] set off for what was to be a great weekend. Evelyn thought it would be a great idea to surprise Cristen with a makeover on this trip, after hearing about her recent miscarriage a not feeling like herself. Although Shaunie was apprehensive, Evelyn was sure that it would work out great! Right?
When Evelyn told Cristen of this surprise, Cristen wasn’t sure how to feel. She was immediately insulted, but didn’t want to assume it was done with malicious intent; so, she eventually agreed. When celebrity stylist, Saniy’yah Samaa, arrived to Palm Springs, she was beyond offensive to Cristen even accusing her of “not knowing how to dress” and “having no style”. She even went as far as to quote a meme stating “sometimes you’re not ugly, you’re just broke”. Damn lady! Already insecure with her image, Cristen immediately broke into tears. “Evelyn, I’m trying to find the fun in it without being offended”, she said, “I am overweight, I am insecure when it comes to that sh*t”. Causing Evelyn to feel horrified about the decision she had made. We had a feeling this would not work out well.
After the dust settled and apologies were made, the ladies decided to go out for dinner (and drinks of course). During dinner, stylist Saniy’yah quickly opened up to the ladies about her affair with a “top person in the NBA”. She mentioned that the man had “3 children” and went as far as to say that she “loved him” and they were together “2 days before his wedding”!!! Even added some tears for dramatic effect. Girl!!!! Shaunie immediately recognized the scenario and labeled the stylist a “homewrecker”. We can say this … Saniy’yah sure has made quite the impression this episode.
