Star Jones Buckles on Basketball Wives: Denies Ever Pushing for a Boycott

By  |  52 Comments

We don’t know if money has exchanged hands or what, but Star Jones is suddenly cool with Evelyn Lozada and the Basketball Wives that she once criticized heavily.  Jones is even denying supporting a boycott against the show.

Star Jones was originally in support of a petition against Basketball Wives started by a Spelman student by the name of Alexis M.   Jones tweeted heavily on her concern about the show, saying the following on Twitter:

“It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH.”

“About to put together a group of sisters to finally ‘tell the truth’ about the image of women of color in the media.”

“And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn’t have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS.”

“You NEVER give up your right not to have your ‘person’ intentionally assaulted unless you are participating in an agreed physical activity.  I’m asking all my high profile, platform having conscientious sisters who STAND FOR SOMETHING to just say #ENOUGHisENOUGH & call folk out! Be mad. But think about what I said. WE ARE BETTER than that. You’re either part of the problem or part of the solution.

Now Jones is tweeting a tamer, more corporate-friendly message, stating that she never intended to boycott the show at all.

“I was never encouraging anybody to boycott somebody’s job. That’s not what I’m about,” she said to Wendy Williams.

Star says that she and Evelyn Lozada, one of the more violent members of the show, were able to “come to an understanding” on the matter, and that they are now friends.   There is no word on how much Star is getting paid for selling out.

    Honestly I don’t watch this show and I think it’s some bull but I don’t see the point in why so many people are putting energy towards it being canceled! People did not just start acting a fool on tv with this show folks! Monitor your home and keep it off the tv if you don’t like it! That’s what’s wrong with so many Americans, people want to control others when they are out of control too! Hell I don’t allow Glee on my tv but so many people love this crap! Promoting gays, teenage sex, teachers having sex, teachers bullying students! But I guess this is ok for reasons I won’t name! LOL The black community has mocked so many things from others I don’t understand why we can’t mock the unity that others have! People of the same race primarily will stick together! But not us!!! WE can’t wait to kill the next man, while others continue to shine above us!! SAD SAD SAD

    What would you expect? Star Jones and Wendy Williams are the original drama queens. Of course money is the main factor for her current flip flop.

    The show is scheduled to air again next season. I will not be watching it. YES it is always about money. If people spent more time getting to know Jesus as their Savior, this world would be better.

    If this is true then this shows a lot about Star Jones integrity her ex husband Al Reynolds made regular appearances on the show so that may have had something too do with her back peddling on her statement and she could have been paid by the executives of Shed Media too keep quiet so I hope that Alexis M. will not back down her efforts should intensify in light of this because without sponsors this show will fade off into the sunset wheather Star is BFF with Evelyn or not.

    Alexis M. Jones got heart, apparently Star Jones don’t! This is exactly why it shouldn’t take a celebrity’s backing of an issue as validity. So what if her and Evelyn had conversation, and are now cool, the show is still a rachett mess and has done great harm to Black Women and our young girls!

    I first read Star started the boycott, now I understand it was originally a Spellman student Alexis M. Jones, but because Star was mentioned, Star got credit? That’s a shame bcuz Star certainly is self-serving as we see. All credit to Alexis, she gives hope that we have young Black Women who appreciates their value and will stand for right, unlike Star, Shaunee, Tami, Evelyn (not Black).

    If there is any question of the damages done by these silly ass women and John Sally who’s only about money, please go to our petition STOP BULLYING NOW!!! at change.org

    The mother of the Bully beating on the 11 yr old posts Basketball Wives as what’s she’s about on her Facebook and Lightskin vs Dark Skin, and the Bully brags she’s “about that life” for attacking and beating the 11 yr old.

    Shame on Star for reversing and fake ass Shaunee and Co, and fake John Sally for continuing the rachettness! BOYCOTT!!!

    What is the station that is repeating this crap? If not Starr Jones, someone should contact the station that allow this type of mess on the air. Shaunie should have gone home and called it a day. This is a hot mess. DO NOT WATCH THIS SHOW!!

    Tell John Sally to let his daughters go on there and have Evelyn jumping down her throat, then see how he tell her to deal with it.They are all hypocries. Trying to act like violence and intimidation is accept.Everyone knows that Shaunie is in it for the money.She never really try to stop the women from acting the fool, just pretends she want the to do better,now it’s only because they’re in jeapordy of losing the show. For all those that are comparing it to movies where there is voilence the difference is that they are just that acting, once they leave the movie set they put on grown up clothes and leave the movie stuff behind. Wake up and understand the difference between the two.

    We forgot Star Jones is just as superficial as all of the characters on the show.

    Nothing surprises me in this day and age but I am kinda surprise at Star, because I read somewhere that she was pushing the boycott and was on somebody show talking about this. The best way to get back is not to watch these stupid reality shows. Good shows like “Harry’s Law” with Kathy Bates they took off the air because they said that it was not appealing to the young people. Oh Well all of these reality shows just show me that Hollywood have lost their creativity. I guess I’ll just stick to “Single Ladies”. Just my opinion.

    We have to make a stand. Just say NO to bbw. Watch National Geographic with the Children. You’ll feel a lot better, and smarter.

    the show its self is not that bad…however everybody has a roll to play…suzie talk to much she repeats ever thing she hear.Royce is cool she is the only one tha well tell Tammy when she is wrong and a friend should be able to do that,Tammy use to be just out spoken she has now turn into a mean girl that is a big bully,Evelyn is really a soft person deep down that speak the truth and want you to do the same..now Shauine i am real disapointed in because this show is her baby and for her not to step in when things are blowing up is just wrong she should really do better then she do….the other 3 are N.F.F

      Shaunie is one of the Producers of the show and she and Tammi pretend that they wanted so badly to get Evely and Jennifer back together, but I just recently read that the producers of the show meaning Shaunie being one of them are sueing Jennifer. It all has to do with the slap at the horse track, because she won’t drop the assault charge.

    Star Jones exemplifies what is wrong with Black women and the Black race. We have lost our dignity and love for one another. We have stopped calling a spade a spade and we’ve fallen totally in love with the mighty dollar at the expense of our souls and our community. Star Jones is just like her suddenly obtained friend Evelyn Lozada, she is a disgrace!

    Forget Basketball Wives, the next train wreck coming to bring disgrace is LOVE AND HIP HOP. We need to get to the sponsors and get these BLACK shows that add no value, morally,spiritually, emotionally, psychologically to the well being of our community OFF THE AIR. We have enough problems as a people trying to get OUR kids raised in a society to be accepted,educated and appreciated, And we don’t need these fools with their buffoonery adding to the negative perception of our people.YES I said BLACK SHOWS because we STILL have to do everything twice as well as everybody else to prove we are good enough and those foolishness is certainly not helping. We can all do without those shows of “NEGATIVE US” on any form of media.WE HAVE TO LOOK OUT FOR US BECAUSE NOBODY ELSE WILL. BE BLESSED…..
