There was a brief moment in the Basketball Wives supertrailer that I’ve been rather curious to see play out. In it, Evelyn chooses to throw an entire bottle of wine at Kenya while being held back by some of the other girls. It may not be the classiest or bravest move, but you had to wonder what could have inspired someone to jump from tossing a drink at another person to chucking an entire bottle in their vicinity.
Ladies and gents, that moment is nigh and we have a good idea why it’s all come down to…this.
So what leads to a flying bottle of liquor, you ask? Apparently, Kenya saying that she heard Evelyn was loose, later confirmed by one of Kesha’s friends that heard it. In the sneak peek of tonight’s episode, that fight is only briefly hinted at, with most of the video being dedicated to how much everybody (minus Jennifer) just isn’t feeling Kenya. At. All. Even though I’m not the president of her fan club or anything, I have to feel for Kenya a little bit here. As always on Basketball Wives, a reaction always outweighs an offense and taking into account Kenya’s new girl status, her chances of infiltrating the circle are pretty nil.
Not that that’s a bad thing. It just means that her only hope of having an ally is befriending Jennifer. But Kesha informing Jen of Kenya’s “obsession” with her may have shot that plan to bits.
Basketball Wives airs tonight at 8:00 on VH1. If you missed my thoughts on last week’s episode, which saw the first group “conversation” in a minute, you can check ’em out here.
Do you think Evelyn’s reaction to what Kenya said is valid? Was Kesha wrong for bringing up the whole thing in the first place? Can Kenya get back into everybody’s good graces by the end of the season?
