'BBW': Royce Reveals Shaunie Refused to Film With Her
Royce shares more thoughts about "Basketball Wives" drama.
It’s ironic that Royce Reed got a bad rap when “Basketball Wives” first started because she was spotted dancing raunchily at a pool party during a “How Low” contest put on by Ludacris. Yet, as the show has progressed, she has come out on top as the most level-headed member of the cast (with the exception of the crying incident with her father).
In a recent interview with radio host TT Torrez, Royce expounded on thoughts she has been vocal about for the past couple of months in terms of the direction that the show has taken.
She talked about why she seems a little more distant this season--it’s because she’s tired the petty issues between the girls, but also because Evelyn and...wait for it…Shaunie refused to film with her this season. Evelyn, we understand, but even Royce said she wasn't sure why Shaunie was upset with her--which confirms my theory about Shaunie being the worst mean girl there is; she tries to pretend she’s the fair and balanced one, but not only does she sit around and let the drama unfold but she participates too by deciding when to abruptly not like someone and by helping her “friends” vandalize luxury hotels, but I digress.

On Negativity: Royce said at one time she quit the show because she felt it was going the wrong route. She said she fought to have producers show another side of her and that’s why we get to see other aspects of her life besides the fighting and drama. She added that the show was like a mirror for her and helped her to change her life for the better.
On Tami: She said she tried to warn Tami about her behavior but that Tami got upset with her because of it. However, now that Tami is actually seeing it and seeing how people are reacting to her, she’s more receptive to calming down. Royce added that there is a warmer side to Tami and that Tami is loving and funny.
On Dezmon: She and Dezmon are good. She said that Dezmon never cheated on her, despite the drama that happened between she and Dezmon’s baby mama on twitter, and that she doesn’t plan to leave.

The Shaunie situation is interesting but I’m with TT Torrez and everyone else about Royce’s relationship. Royce should leave Dezmon. The whole situation was too basic to get past, and I wouldn’t be surprised if something similar happens again. However, she’s a grown woman so she has to do what she feels is best for herself. )But here are 3 reasons why she should dump him!)
These days, producers of “Basketball Wives” are promising change but I don’t see how that’s going to happen with the same women on the show.
Also, anyone notice that no one is talking about the behavior they see on “Mob Wives” and “Real Housewives of New Jersey?” Why be disgusted and boycott one when there’s a whole gang of shows with the same type of mean girl behavior? The last time I checked, there was only a petition for “Basketball Wives.”
