"Basketball Wives" Updates: Gloria's Man Matt Hates The Show+Jen Parties It Up With The Girls

Oh the drama!  "Basketball Wife" Gloria Govan's fiance' Matt Barnes isn't feeling this show at all.  He did an interview with sports radio recently and made it clear that he was 100% against the idea of Gloria doing the show to begin with.  He believed it wouldn't be a good look for him or his teammates. And it turns out, his instincts were right.

 

Matt's take on the show when you read on...

 

Matt said he came around to the idea after Gloria met with the producers and after Shaunie was so persistent about getting her on the show.  He said he trusted his fiance's decision.  

But once the first episode aired, he thought it was disgusting.  Especially the fact that Gloria's castmates often dog out their exes calling them nothing but cheaters.  He says the producers lied about how things would be portrayed and he has since apologized to his teammates.  Womp.  Our homie over at BSO has the audio.

 

Speaking of the "Basketball Wives", here's a pic of co-star Jennifer Williams hosting a viewing party and champagne toast in Miami the other night.  She was toasting Miami influencers and her cast mates Evelyn and Suzy at the exclusive Burger & Beer Joint.  Fun times.

Gloria is way to boring for

Gloria is way to boring for the show she needs to go, I applaud Jennifer for showing the word what really going on in her relationship, so many of us ladies is in bad relationship but we would never admitted it to world, it does take courage to do so, it would be nice if the show have some type of balance - the drama is great however it would be nice to see them doing positive activities, beside that I luv the show. I love the cat fight, I luv the drama, what we all need to understand most of us has regular life - the show is just an entertainment for us don't take it to serious analyzing there life what's good/bad at the end of the day these people has no problem taking care of the bills.

I personally think that this

I personally think that this show is rather sad....it just goes to show just how insecure these women really are. I think they go around just looking for trouble!!!! Jennifer: is to insecure to realize that not only does her husband cheats on her but she really does not love her. He don't even want kids.... Evelyn: the show is called basketball wives!!! where is ur money coming from?? the store has only been open a year.. Suzy: who the hell are you???? Royce: you dnt wanna be labeled a groupie but u carry urself as one...AND ur head is so far up jenn and evelyn's to realize that they dnt even really like u Gloria: keep doin u honey!!!!!! love it

Shaunie: If you don't won't

Shaunie: If you don't won't Shaq, why does his past indescretions matter? Jennifer: Honestly, if he didn't have $, who would fuck your husband? He reminds me of the loner in highschool who couldn't get a date, now he's got a lil money, and thinks he's Chico Suave....don't nobody want his ass...like, you, they just want his money. Royce: You are a mother exposing her life on a Reality show....act like it Evelyn: Misery loves company, huh? Gloria: I actually like the gal. Too bad she won't be featured on BballWives II unless she gets som drama about herself .....add Lala and Vanessa Bryant to the show please....

Anyone else wondering where

Anyone else wondering where the hell Suzy fits in at? What I don't understand is why they're going after the jumpoffs, like their men didn't have self control? I honestly like Gloria, I just think because she's so drama-free, they're gonna place her in a whole 'nother category

Jennifer is still married,

Jennifer is still married, but it's almost like she isn't and knows that her marriage will/may not last through the end of this year. Any real wives would not do this show. They don't want their personal lives on blast, and I'm sure the wives don't either...I wouldn't!!! Your man is already in the public eye, why draw the more attention to your man or yourself?

FIRST OFF LET ME SAY THAT THE

FIRST OFF LET ME SAY THAT THE SHOW IS FUNNY , IT JUST SHOWS U HOW STUPID WOMEN ARE WHEN THEY HAVE MONEY AND A FAMOUS HUSBAND. FIRST OFF THEY ARE NOT GOING TO LEAVE THEIR HUSBAND UNTIL YEARS LATER SO THEY CAN GET AS MUCH SPOUSAL AND CHILD SUPPORT POSSIBLE AND THEY LOVE THE PERKS OF THEIR MARRIAGES. AS A WOMEN YOU KNOW WHEN YOUR MATE IS CHEATING WHETHER HE IS FAMOUS OR NOT. JUST LIKE TIKI BARBER WIFE SHE KNEW SHE JUST THOUGHT IT WAS A PHASE AND HE WOULD GROW OUT OF IT BUT AS YOU SEE HIS SIDE PIECE OF 5 YEARS STILL GOT EM NOW HIS WIFE IS ON BED REST PRENANT WITH TWINS, HER STUPIDITY THAT MARRIAGE BEEN OVER WHICH JUST LIKE MANY OF THESE ON THE SHOW HAVE AS WELL. AS FAR AS MATT, I WOULDN'T WANT MY FUTURE WIFE HANGING AROUND THESE FAKEASS GOLDDIGGING BROADS EITHER THEY WILL HAVE HER PARANIOD AS HELL. AND IF HE HAS CHEATED OH WELL APPARENTLY SHE HAS FORGIVEN HIM AND THEY ARE TRYING TO WORK THINGS OUT UNLIKE THE REST OF CAST. WHEN DOES A MAN HAVE TO ASK HIS WIFE FOR SEX? YEAH THAT MARRIAGE IS TRULEY OVER NOW ITS JUST A ROOMATE SITUATION.

i still cant figure out why

i still cant figure out why is shaunie so mad at gloria. gloria did not sleep with shaq her sister did. of course blood is thicker than water. I dont think gloria set them up.. She seems to slow to do something like that. And when was shaq ever home if he had all those women. Shaunie may have had a boo on the side too. It is a win/win situation for both. It was not all that bad

I watch the the show, Yhe sad part about it These basketball players is sleeping with all these women. A n these women are staying with them because of the money, that is sad, What about them catching Aids. You know these fools are not always using protection.Look at the one who got the aids.It is not worth it. Magic johnson. What if he had given it to his wife. yhat is so sad. All because of money, Look at all these women having these babies for Lill wayne that don't make no sense. No protection. how stupid can you be. Aids is a killer. Money is not gone to do you any good if you are dying. I know those players brought all kinds of disease home to there wives. Because they are sleeping with so many women. I feel sorry for the children.And they putting up with it beccause of the money.Lord Help them and save them because they are on there way to hell.

****Correction: And MOST

****Correction: And MOST disappointing is this feeds back into the foolish and stereotypical excuses some (not most; check it out for yourselves our men are NOT all after or are with other races-MEDIA refuses to promote/reflect this fact-DON'T BUY INTO IT, PLEASE) black men give for choosing other race women.

The sad part about this thing

The sad part about this thing is that there are "TRUE" Basketball Wives enduring the immature, self indulgent behavior of these guys (not men). Women who truly loved their men and did believe (either before their rise to stardom or by their men assuring them his feelings for her are different/stronger) their relationship was genuine. Women who (maybe against their own judgement) hoped for a loving, committed future. The show was disappointing to me because; I too thought it was going to be along the lines of "Documentary" style or "Life in the Day Of "forum. Not this foolishness. And MOST disappointing is this feeds back into the foolish and stereotypical excuses some (not most; check it out for yourselves our men are all after or are with other races-MEDIA refuses to promote/reflect this fact-DON'T BUY INTO IT, PLEASE) black men give for choosing other race women. Any way the truth is there really are wives of affluent men truly suffering (even if she leaves scares are there) PAINFUL

First-to everyone not

First-to everyone not understanding why Matt would be concerned-Dwight Howard (Royce's baby's father) is his teammate, so Im sure being a part of a show that has her booty popping with Ludacris just isn't a good look. period. Second-There is a ton of cheating in pro sports-even a dummy knows this. Therefore, I understand why all of you are skeptical of his motives. However, him being a 'cheater' is not the only reason he would have to be opposed to this foolishness. Just LOOK at the show-nan 1 of them is a wife, except for Jennifer, and her husband BLATANTLY just told her he doesn't want her around him when he goes out. Come on, if I my friend is on that show, Im telling her pointblank it is NOT A GOOD LOOK because it makes anyone associated with it look dumb and superficial, or like a cheating ass. Now imagine you are WORKING with the people that are being disparaged on the show like Matt is. Whether it's true or not, all the drama is stemming from personal/sexual realtionships, noteworthy because the men are athletes! So it will always feel exploitative and sleazy-Like they're riding the coattails of people with actual talent, just to make a name for themselves. The show is not done well, at all. Shaunie was just going for ratings, she could have done something less--superflous and materialistic.

Shaunie is a better woman

Shaunie is a better woman then I ever could be because the look in Gloria's eyes when Shaunie confronted her about her sister, told the truth! Gloria is a snake just like her sister! And Gloria's finance doesnt like the show because he knows the truth about the basketball industry "sexual" activities. He needs to go sit his punk-A down just like big-dumb Shaq, LOL! I'm tired of those ball players thinking they are above everybody else! Bye Boys.

Shaunie isn't being a 'big'

Shaunie isn't being a 'big' woman when she looked into Gloria's eyes, she's being a money grubbing woman. Don't you notice that she's not really a part of the show? she just sets them up to act out drama on camera, and they comply because they're so bitter/hurt/opportunistic/fame hungry. Honestly, I know there is a ton of cheating in pro sports. But, I also know Shaunie is probably not bothered by whatever Shaq was doing, she did her time, got her money, and now is pimping these chicks for even money. Plus, Shaunie married Shaq when he was already established in the league, had baby mamma situations and was coming off a marriage herself to someone who was in Shaq's employ. psh.

I think the message from this

I think the message from this show is two folds. One argument I hear from the comments is they all cheat, shut up and enjoy the ride and the other it’s the women’s turn to out the men. I believe any women should be able to expect their man to be faithful no matter what is profession is. Just because you are an athletic shouldn't mean you have the right a passage to cheat. Just the like the player has the right to expect his woman will not cheat on him when he is on the road. Unfortunately, some of these women come off as unhappy and bitter. They don’t know when to shut that down and stop assuming every man out there cheats just because they were cheated on. Like Jennifer, her man has cheated on her and seeing the big ass chip on her shoulder I truly see why. Since she has decided to stay with her husband, one would think she wouldn’t continue to carry all her hurt and pain with her all day every day. She hasn’t forgiven him for cheating, will remind him of it every chances she gets. That is why her husband asked if could he have some sex later that night, in the 2nd eps., (me things) when they had dinner. He asked so he would know if he should handle that before coming home or not…….lol

i love it that those dum ass

i love it that those dum ass "first" posts are on the LAST PAGE now. makes my heart go pitter patter. i feel sorry for anyone whose title in life is related to having had sex with a specific person especially when that person is not defined by you. their parents/families/friends/children must be so proud....NOT! i watched the first show and it was so depressing. ugly people dressed up as if they were pretty walking around celebrating nothing at all. so sad. i couldnt figure out where the ex-longtime-girlfriend got the money from to throw herself a party, hire a planner and a stylist when she clearly didnt have a job. what world do they live in and why hasnt the recession gotten there yet???
shuga's picture

"i feel sorry for anyone

"i feel sorry for anyone whose title in life is related to having had sex with a specific person especially when that person is not defined by you. their parents/families/friends/children must be so proud....NOT!" EXACTLY-that's what will always make that program a bad look for anyone that is NOT a passed over ex. It's just not a good look, at all; that's probably what Matt was saying. Also, when they were at the table grilling him about tiger woods, of course he's not going to disparage his NEIGHBOR and a prominent season ticket holder, for something in his personal life..that's just messy. Who made him the moral authority? I don't want my neighbor getting on tv, talking about what's allegedly going on in my household. come on. Jennifer is in a very depressing situation, that's why she cant help confronting her husband's women and probably why she can't control her tongue when cheating is brought up. I actually think she might love the guy, because if not it wouldn't affect her as it does. Evelyn left Antwaun Walker conveniently around the time his money went out, and now she has her 'own' shoe store. Shaunie left shaq and numerous scandalous emails mysteriously found their way on blogs like these. So interesting. These chicks, for the most part, seem to be intent on just doing their time and feeding off the limelight these men provide. Gloria does seem naive and hopeful, so she should at least perk up her ears to learn some warning signs. But apart from that, keep your home life drama free.

It very well may not be the

It very well may not be the fact the he has something to hide (as some are insinuating). Just because Jennifer (messy and hell) and Evelyn ( want to be) are not happy, they just want to make everyone around them like them, and he doesn’t want them corrupting his fiancée as he stated. Who can blame him.

Personally i like the show,

Personally i like the show, its entertaining. But i feel like they are putting things out there in a bad light( in regards to the men) because we all look at their lives from the outside and see the big houses and flashy cars and think everything is all good. So i guess they feel like they need to let it all be known. now all the bickering, backstabbing and cattiness makes good for tv, so some of yall need to stop fronting like you're so high and mighty that you dont watch these shows cause ya do, how else would you know what its about and whats going on! :0

I haven't watched the show, nor do I care to watch the show. Apparently, this show is not done in good taste, like many of the reality shows on television these days. I agree with Matt Barnes statement. The show has the potential to damage these professional atheletes if unchecked. These women have already shown that they not interested in respecting their spouses professional career. The show should be focusing on lady's careers and the things that they do in their daily life's.

IF YOU DON'T DO THINGS TO MAKE YOU LOOK BAD THEN NO WORRIES. DON'T HATE CAUSE THE WOMEN HAVE ENTERED THE GAME. MATT WHY ARE YOU SO MAD? I THINK YOU ARE SCARED YOUR GOOD BOY IMAGE WILL BE RUIN LIKE YOUR BOY DWIGHT. EITHER WAY GLO AINT GOING ANYWHERE. I LIKE THE CONCEPT OF THE SHOW I JUST DON'T LIKE HOW SNOBBY THE BI**H JEN AND EV ARE.

I agree with him. As his

I agree with him. As his wife, she should have not agreed to do the show out of respect for him and his profession. His profession has granted her that lavish lifestyle so why knock it?? They seem to have a strong family unit so why display it for the nation to see and pick apart?? Athletes are not the only men who cheat!! Men who hold are admired my the public, make lots of money and have big egos from praise of all their talents are more vulnerable to be self centered individuals who suck at REAL love & intimacy. Real love is a choice and has to be rooted in the principles of the Bible to succeed. No, you don't even have to be a Christian but ask any couple who've been married for decades and they will say their union is based on mutual respect, admiration, sacrifice, trust/faith and putting the other person's needs before your own... I can see why he's upset. First, his wife's sister is sheisty and that reflects on her. Her friends are bitter Betty's (I have no sympathy for them! If you don't like the man you are married to's habits LEAVE HIM and move on and get over it! You look lame as hell. You don't see Shaunie on the show much talking about Shaq DO YOU? She's just exploiting these women actually. But I guess they are willing participants) and all they do is party, club, and whine all day long. I sure wouldn't want my hubby hanging with friends who dislike my profession, are bitter, talk smack all day about me, and are fake and a bad influence!

Co-sign. If a cheating

Co-sign. If a cheating athlete is that bad, go back to poverty or shut up and enjoy the life you'd never have on your own. How can it be that bad if Evelyn stuck around Antoine Walker for 10 years without being upgraded? Evelyn is a bad gold-digger anyway. Antoine Walker made over $100M in his career and his $4M in debt - #FAIL

A post like this one that will only add to the load of trying to have a successful relationship in an already complicated situation. I expected more from Shaunie thinking this would not be Real Houswives Part 2...but the same old tired script...a bunch of disgruntled women flaunting their clothes and tyalking about their fabulous lives in most cases provided to them by the very man they are trashing on TV. So get your own and make a reality show about that

Okay, I have not commented in

Okay, I have not commented in a while but I think I have some things to say about this show. I think alot of altheletes wives/girlfriends have the common theme of feelings of loneliness. This show exposes what we already are aware of but not to this extent. I am feeling ambivalent about these women, part of me feels sorry and the other part does not feel anything for them because at the end of the day we have choices. I am not going to lie, I had a huge crush on Shaq years ago when he first came out but I thank god I am not married to one of these men because I would be just as miserable as them. I think their world is soo different and normal to them. It is easy for us to criticize but I think once you get caught up in that scencery and life, your preception on life changes. I do not like the show but I watch the show. I thought the show was going to more positive but it is not. I did not appreciate those women going into that Matt's home trying to expose him. I think that was just mean. Regardless of what they think or know, some things you just do not do even to your friends. It's a time and place for everything. Yeah, these are some miserable girls but you chose that life. All that glitter is not glamours? I would say they have low self-esteems but I really think that they are caught up in that world. Thank God for sparing me.

Matt seems like a good guy,

Matt seems like a good guy, and he should worry about his image only. If his teamates are cheating and they don't feel good about bad exposure, stop doing stupid things! It's clear that Jen's Hubby is over her, but she is still holding on. I believe that you should do everything to make a marriage work, but there are too many diseases out her to put up with a cheating man!
