    I wish they would get rid of all those women I love Malaysia the older Women’s time has come and gone they really need to bring back the younger women. All of the older women talk about each other behind their back. They act stupid and all shaubie want to do is fire people. They r intimidated by youth Royce gone Gloria gone drays gone Megan gone brandi gone both angels gone. They need to call this the basketball wives.

    Why in the hell is she keeping Jackie with her Old, Out of Style, ignorant ass !. She is too old to be hanging, she should be ashamed of herself. I’m not a violent person but you call my daughter a name like she did Evelyn’s, I would have taken her face off with a glass in the bar. She’s out of pocket and what the hell is Shawnies problem. He husband ain’t shit for not telling her about herself.

  3. Hello okay so everybody has comments and there own opinion can we just leave Tammi Roman alone. She clearly has been through something like we all go through. I personally like her, she has came along ways. I remember when she never did any talking just fighting. So come on give the girl some kind of props…….

    • Solange on said:

      Jackie is the #@!# worst thing on the show she should have never lasted this long. Tami is funny as hell and Evelyn is and always will be the shit

  4. Happiness on said:

    My Husband broke up with me 3 months ago and left me heartbroken, this made me sick and my problem became very very difficult and it made me almost gave up but after the love spell from Dr Mack, my relationship was restored instantly, I was happy that the outcome was fantastic, only 3 days after ( dr.mac@yahoo. com ) started it all. Never in my life have I thought this would work so fast. My man reconcile with me and he started acting completely different, we make love everyday, I feel happy once again, and like never before. It felt so good to have my Husband back again, Thanks to DR MACK……

  5. i have to agree Tami Roman is the worse she is the reason that i stop watching the show. the guy that she is dating he should be dating one her daughters she can be his mother. shaunie please get rid of tami we can go to back to watching the show

    • Ollie Thomas on said:

      Tami represents every ignorant thing we don’t want our Black Girls to be and she’s proud of that image at 50 years old. So sad these women have a chance to show grace and class, but as a sick public they give us what we want I guess!

  6. Sweetie's Mom on said:

    Excuse me, am I missing something? Is it supposed to be a privilege to be on this show? Really? Honestly, I can’t believe that this garbage is still on television. Tami Roman is the worse, by far. She is a nasty, vulgar, fake-looking, bully (she must have forgotten how ghetto she looked during her first appearance – – I didn’t.) She continues to harp on that dumb schitt regarding Kenny Anderson, who didn’t want her raggedly ass anyhow. Everything about her character is foul, every season… Tami, are you embarrassed? What won’t you do for a little attention and money? I pray that this isn’t your normal personality. If so; you’ll meet you match one day and someone is going to stand up to you and beat you down. This show is a disgrace – – you got this stank looking Tami, crazy-ass Jackie, Shaunie O’Neal is so transparent (and a has-been too) and there’s Evelyn who can’t seem to cut strings with this tacky show. She wants us to believe that she finally has a little class (Oprah has truly tried but we all know about getting the ghetto out of a person – – it’s almost impossible), however, I want to see her snap and bring the ghetto that’s within her out on Tami and then, let’s end the show. Enough already… there are positive ways to depict black women. Shame on you VH1 for allowing this mess to continue…

    • Lynne Rotonda on said:

      I stopped watching when they all went to Bora Bora.. or someplace exotic. It has been so long, I forget. Anyway, Tami Roman intimidated a young woman there, with other “wives” (hah) standing right there. It SICKENED me! The young woman quit the show. Tami Roman is a bully. I wouldn’t watch this if I was tied up in front of the TV… truly a Tami move. I’m an older Black woman… I have old people money. You would think the sponsors would care that I, and no doubt others just like me, quit watching because of this woman. Tami has mental issues, clearly. Either she does this stuff because she likes to bully, or to create a story line to insure a spot on the show. Whatever her motivation, it indicates an unsound mind. Don’t you think? Granted, people watch the show for the “cat” fights…. but there is a limit… at least in my sound mind!

  7. Debbie Wright on said:

    I think Shaunie made A wise decision by eliminating Brandi and Duff Duff. They were both way over due. However I didn’t see so much what Angel Love did. Except not having Duff Duff arrested after spiking her drink.

  8. I think it was a bad business decision to fire Brandi and Malaysia. The fans loved them and ratings aka money was great for producers. This new yet older cast is obviously a purely emotionial one, not financial.

    • Mrs HunnedK on said:

      The show clearly says BASKETBALL WIVES if you are not or haven’t been a WIFE then they should have NEVER been on the show…. Hints the reason Angel Brinks and Angle love and Duff Duff not on….. Brandi and the NEW Malaysia need to get off their high horses and act like a cast member and not the producer….

    • Doris Ramesse on said:

      Why come Jackie don’t whip Evelyns
      Ass don’t let her keep pu.king Jackie like she so tough I thought she was trying to have some more kids now she talking about tazzi.g Jackie! SMH.

    • Raymond on said:

      When will tami punk evelyn the woman that has stood toe to toe with her talked about her and even made fun of her,and with that being said she told her that she slept with kenny anderson while she was still married to him,so see tami is a coward

      • Raymond on said:

        Evelyn has made tami look like a dumb ass fool she slept with her man and talk shit to her when she feels like it ! ! !

  9. RICKIE L BETHANY on said:

    WRONG MOVE MS. O’NEAL ON KEEPING Jackie Christy…….

    • Yes jackie is like kenya from atlanta housewives. She do stuff and pretend she doesnt realize what she do im so over them. Im not looking at basketball wives anymore its just looking too old now now mam and i cant take jackie anyway.lost my rating !

    • Barbara caffey on said:

      I AGREE. JACKIE CHRISTIE IS A PSYCHO B$%#@& and I guess I won’t be watching it at all anymore until they take Jackie off for good!!

  10. Ann: tami is an old ghetto rats who needs to go. That young kid don’t need to have a baby with that old bag. Run for you life from this mess.

  11. Shaunie gets on my nerves riding on Shaqs coat tails with her fake self. Jackie doesnt fit in as she looks too grandma. And Tammi is just plain hood. Yes its time to hang it up ladies.

  12. VH1 canceled Miami for a reason I’m just confused how Shaunie thinks the same cast but only OLDER is going to be a better look. They looked crazy doing all that fighting and bullying when they were younger how the hell are they going to look now? Hopefully they take the show in a classy direction leave the fighting and bickering in season 5. But wait I probably won’t watch because I live for a Draya KO punch…Living vicariously LOL!

  14. Kristy on said:

    Hey do you guys realize that some of the things in the show are made to be ugly and nasty. Even though it’s a REALITY SHOW it’s not real. Also y’all mad at these folks and for what??? U mad cause vh1 cuts out things and makes it seems like it’s like that. These people are getting paid and u arent. I know yall mad at what they said and did but coming on here attacking people or calling them out they name ain’t gonna stop shit. They gonna keep wearing them designer shit, they gonna keep talking and making them checks. That’s the problem we as women like to hurt each other when we should be trying to come together especially THE BLACK COMMUNITY we were taught to hate our own race please ladies stop it. This isn’t cool st all

  15. I lost all respect for all of them. Jackie is crazy; Tami…why did she return? Unfortunately, Ms. O is taking cues from the wrong folks. Please cancel the show completely.

  16. Edna Horton on said:

  20. You really should have some decency Shaunie as to how these girls are dressing for the camera – they look like strippers and hookers! Where is the storyline going….straight to the streets? There is nothing worth watching or uplifting on Basketball Wives LA. No charities, women empowering women, no new business ventures, fundraising or anything that is really worth watching these tramps come together.

  21. etaboo on said:

    I m glad Malaysia is gone she was fake and bougie. She started feeling herself more and more every season. One day she’s Hollywood next dsy she’s Compton. Brandi is her puppet. Duffy was irrelevant.. tammy is not a bulky, mess with my kids and I will hurt u. Tacky jackie is nuts and sundy is irrelevant.

  22. Jackie should have been the first to go,maybe she wasn’t because she causes so much drama, everybody knows she is crazy, look how she acted during Dougs career, but i never really watched LA because of Jackie, I quit watching Miami because of Evelyn, ratchet is what they both are. Evelyn has a new reality show I heard, is that what being ratchet does for you?

  23. This show needs to be cancelled it’s overkill! There’s nothing positive about it! There not basketball wives anymore, except Jackie and Doug is afraid of Jackie so he puts up with her insane behavior.

  24. D. Com on said:

    I will not be watching tammy is a bully jackie is a drunk and ms. O’Neal is a bitch.just because the other girls wouldn’t kiss her ass like tammy and jackie.

  25. Jarreim on said:

    Unfortunatwly this will not be new, the show from Miamu got cancelled, so there has been a plot ever since to snatch the LA show away for Shaunie and her crew. Guess it worked! If they were so good, why was the Miami show cancelled?

  26. ButterPecan on said:

    Is that ratchet show still airing! Jackie needs some serious mental help. Tami needs some anger management and Shaunie I applaud you getting your coins but reality TV is not your strong suit.

  27. on said:

    Shaunie, Tammy and jackie are the most ratchet people on the show. I guess that’s why everyone else got the axe. America loves to see Black people degrade themselves and be messy. way to go Shaunie! Represent us well.

  28. Leroyora Fennell on said:

    I love the show.. Shaunie O’Neal keep doing what you doing collecting them coins, keep showing woman you can do anything you put your mind to doing.. BBWLA are generation loves you..

  29. If I was Shaunie I would have fired them too! LOL… It’s HER vision and the disrespect and negative energy was lame. Simple Simon cookie cutter .Get your money Shaunie! Love you girrrrl! Hell put me on the show! Let me FIND my basketball player, coach, owner, commentator! Ha! Ha! Do your thing ladies. Do YOU Shaunie. Xoxo

  30. Im glad they are not returning. Its time for some new people and new things.And for those people calling the show ghetto, You all just haters.

  31. Malaysia is the best person on the show but because she’s a true friend of Brandy she got fired… girl bye! I hope Malaysia and Brandy get their own spin off.

    • So true they need their own show. But Tammi bully ass should have gotten FIRED because she attacked that young Lady first but we know why because her and Shauni are friends bullcrap. And Jackie the old shit starter should have been gone she don’t even help her daughter with her grandchild because she darkskined wtf and then that tramp Evelyn hell no I will not watch it and I hope other people don’t either.

  32. They all need to get pink-slipped and the show cancelled. These types of shows, particularly with Black women are such a disgrace and embarrassment. Can’t they find a more positive platform to portray? Why continue to allow a network put yourselves on ignorant display? It is so demeaning to women. Do better ladies….that is if you want to be called ladies.

  33. Michelle on said:

    This Show is So Shady And Seem so Fake Jackie Christy is a Drunk Tammie Romance is just Ghetto and just kissing ass for her Paycheck and,Shaunte degrades the Other women that’s not in her clique. And where is there Husbands. Just seem So Faked and Desperate woman trying to getvpaid.

    • Belinda Lee on said:

      The whole show should be cancelled. Jackie keeps up a lot trouble, Tammie is a ghetto shit starter, and Shawn needs to go sit down.

  34. Dlorickjr on said:

  35. Ms. Kim on said:

    Now who they gon get to act all stupiiiid…… 😦 😦 please stop it my sista’s! shawn you know you the biggest mess with all that shaq money!!!!! LUCKY

  36. I didn’t even know that this ghetto mess is still on. I know they are acting (reality tv 101); but shows like this are (part) of the reason so many people in the real world are so rude. Some young people, sales clerks, restaurant workers, etc. watch this crap, and think it’s ok to be rude, and talk to customers any kind of way. All these shows about judging who’s the best singer, dancer, etc. also aren’t good for the country overall. Intelligent adults know how to filter through the crap……but a lot of young people think it’s normal behavior.

  37. I agree with you Sheila. She should have been the FIRST to go! She is a drunk, backbiter, and too old for the show. Give her a different show to star on but not this one.
