Militant Mondays – Basketball Wives the Movie…
The TV show Basketball Wives irritates the hell out of me; watching Black/Latino women make fools of themselves was fun at 1st but this has gotten out of hand. It has gotten to the point it is sad to watch these women sell themselves out for the fame. I wrote before how much of a pimp Shaunie O’neal was for making money off these broads, and also had sad it was.
And now Shaunie’s pimp game is about to hit the big screen….
So far it sounds like the movie version of Basketball Wives will be a fictional story about a woman who deals with her NBA boyfriend and the other basketball girlfriends. I wonder if the story will ACTUALLY have women who are wives???
Now I will do what I can not to pass judgement before watching the final product, but it is going to be difficult. To be successful you have to believe that the movie will attempt to follow the formula that has made the TV show so successful. It will be interesting to see what direction Tracey Edmonds will take the movie; there has been a lot of bad press recently with Basketball Wives lately as this season has seem to go over the top with all the fighting/violence. Evelyn Lozada has been the focus of the criticism as she has gone into overdrive with the bitch calling and table hopping. It’s so bad that a petition was started on Change.org against Evelyn and her upcoming show ‘Eve and Ocho’ with Chad Ochocinco.
You know I am not sure if this is what they meant when people talked about what the success of ‘Think Like A Man’ would do for future “Black films”.
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
