"Basketball Wife" Meeka Claxton Addresses The Haters, Her Greasiness, Her Fight With Tami, & Her Messiness

So new "Basketball Wife" Meeka Claxton called up Power 92 in Richmond to dish about how she's portrayed on this new season of "Basketball Wives."  She dishes on the haters who call her Greasy Meeka, Tami allegedly punching her out, and if she's really as messy as she comes off on the show.  Meeka also explains why she has issues with Royce and why the show may portray her as a Evelyn/Shaunie/Jennifer groupie, even though it's not the case.

 

Her full interview and the important highlights inside....

 

Meeka chatted with TT Torrez and made a point to say she's very secure as she knows she's a true "wife" and she got what she signed up for--the show portraying her as something she is not.  She cleared up that she was not the one begging to come on the show like Shaunie said in recent interviews, their mutual friend Jackie Christie (who is starring in the upcoming "Basketball Wives LA" spinoff) Don King'd the deal.  And she did this show to showcase how grounded a real basketball wife can be with family.

Oh, and she says her hubby of 5 years, Speedy (who she met in college 6 years ago), isn't pleased at all with the show and how she's being portrayed.

 

Highlights:

On rumors of her begging Shaunie to be on “Basketball Wives” Meeka said she didn’t seek Shaunie out. A mutual friend of theirs named Jackie actually reached out to Shaunie because she felt that Meeka would be a good addition to the show. Meeka said she was hesitant at first but wanted to show the life of a real basketball wife.

On how the show has portrayed her so far: Meeka said she’s not mad about it. She hopes the show will show more of her family and her running her business.

On coming off as a “Shaunie-Evelyn-Jennifer groupie”: She said she’s not offended when someone asks her about being their groupie. She said that they were just as excited to meet her as well. She set the record straight saying, “definitely ain’t no groupie status here.”

On Evelyn and Shaunie saying she talks too much: She said she doesn’t pay attention to all of that because she knows that they were talking too and she knows a lot about them too. She said at first it bothered her but now it doesn’t saying, “I can’t even be mad at that. I signed up for it. “

On how she handles all the drama stemming from “Basketball Wives”: She said she’s so secure that it doesn’t faze her, “to know me is to love me.”

On people nicknaming her “Greasy Meeka”: She responded, “It’s HOT as hell out there in Miami and they have us drinking like sailors so that’s the sailor in me I guess coming out, sweating like crazy. I just definitely know who I am…[I’m a] little too secure for all of that so I laugh at them when I think that they think that I’m bothered by it. It’s like…let them hate, I really don’t care. I know who I am and I know what it is. I’m the one that’s here that’s the basketball wife.”

On the rumor of Tami punching her in the face in Rome: “Rumors are rumors and they are always going to be there,” she said. She can’t give anything away but said we will have to watch the show because this season is an explosive season. She said if something like that did happen, that’s NOT her style and that she’s a classy chick.

**Meeka then admits that Tami DID NOT punch her in the face!

On how important it is for her being in the “Shaunie-Evelyn-Jennifer” clique: Meeka said it might seem like she’s worried about being in their circle, but she’s really not. She said she’s only concerned with her paper and her family. She said she was hesitant about meeting Royce because she’s a dancer that crossed the line (referring to Royce’s relationship with Dwight Howard).

On people calling her “Two-Faced Meeka”: She said that’s definitely not her. She said the girls are not always what they seem but she just has to remember who she is and be secure in that. She said if you think she’s two faced then you really don’t know her. She confessed after watching the show she can see why people would think that though.

On how her husband, Speedy Claxton, feels about her being on the show: Initially he thought it was great to show a happy basketball wife and husband raising two kids together. Now seeing the show he’s a little pissed off because it didn’t look the way he had imagined it.

On if he wants her to leave “Basketball Wives”: She said she can’t say but he’s not happy and he wants her to fix that.

On if she and Speedy were to get a divorce: Meeka has her own business so if they were to split she said she would be fine.

On if she let her two daughters watch the show: At the beginning she admitted she did let them watch the show. She said they shot some good footage and she thought it was going to come out differently. She said she sent them out the room while watching the first episode and she will not let them watch it any longer. She said with them being so young (ages 2 & 7) that they are very impressionable and she doesn’t want her children to see her in that light.

Sigh.  That's about all I can do....

All you black hoes condone

All you black hoes condone Tami because she's ghetto like your dumbasses. Meeka runs off at the mouth true enough, but that doesn't give Tami a reason to put her hands on anybody. It's typical most of you love Tami because she's ghetto just like the rest of you hating azz hoodrats. No wonder black men don't want yall's dramafied azzes. Black women are their worst enemies and most of you black bytches on here feed off drama because all you do is call another black woman names and dog the hell outta her. Give me any race over a dumbazz black hoodrat, yall live, eat and breathe on putting down other sistas. No wonder yall bytches are the least desired.

I agree Tammie has a lot of hate in her, and after hitting Meeka, I have nothing for her. That was a punk move. Tammie never take the blame for her actions, and the other girls such as Shaunie, Jen, Everlyn are just as bad for egging the dramma. Susie, AINT SHIT!

OH, Meeka was not lying when she said Tammie called them fake, remembered her saying. Now her excuse is that she was mad with Everlyn, if she said that. WHAT THE HELL! She can remember all the things someone else says, but now she can't remember. Everlyn AINT SHIT EITHER. Royce is the most real person on the show. She don't kiss no ass! Shaunie is passive aggressive, Ms. Slick! Jen must have someone direct her air head ass. This is why I don't like hanging with a bunch of females, too damn ignorant, and keep shit going. SUSIE AINT SHIT.

I hate Evelyn! I'm

I hate Evelyn! I'm dissapointed Tami made up with her. I don't get how Tami can say they had no other beef but the shirts? Wtf? SHE FUCKED YOUR MAN! The bitch is a backstabber and can't be trusted. I hate how she gets away with talking slick to Tami ..like wtf? This bitch needs her ass beat. They treat her like she God on the show. I HATE Meeka! No one is hating because she's married..blah blah..whatever bullshit I read up top. people don't like her because she was talking shit about not fuckin with Royce before even knowing her but when questioned it's "nah...me and Royce good"..which is it? Now she all scared and back on Royce back..meeting her man and shit.. FAKE! People also don't like her because she try too damn hard to be in the circle! She all kissin Evelyn's ass by hatin on Royce and then is all shocked when Eveyln aint accepting her for it. Then she set Jen up..like wtf? U don't even know her..how can u set her up? How desperate can u be!??!! Then Tami was being all classy at the polo match thing and this bitch give her attitude..like wtf? Tami isn't the one to be fucked with. She's dumb to think these girls have her back over anyone..she's a new edition. They'd probably get back with Royce before ever accepting her. She'd be better just being herself. Also, I do think she's UNATTRACTIVE! I'm not hatin on another black woman, it's just how it is!! I don't care what race u r, I can still think u are ugly or not... she has a pig face..her eyes are far apart...big flat ass nose...chubby face..YUCK! She is soo lucky she can afford the finer things..without the good weaves, nice clothes, accesories, makeup....this chic would look like a torn up hoodrat! She stuck up like she don't know she aint cute. These chics stay hatin on Royce when she like the most natural pretty and she actually has real hair most times. I'm glad she on the show though, she gonna bring the BITCH outta Tami..more entertainment for me :)

None of the girls on this

None of the girls on this show is classy. They are wannabees. Instead of talking about Royce's dressing attire and the price of her clothers, Shaunie, Jen, and Everlyn need to stay out of the second hand consignment shop purchasing used brand name cloths. Didn't your momma teach you not to talk about people cloths and how they look. Hell none of you can take this shit with you when you go in your private box. Plus, you make black women look bad with all this bullshit!

Then she all on Ev's ish like a dog in heat. Tami should have punched her right in her sh*t when she asked her had she been drinking. And Ev.....this bi**h is straight up nasty. Somebody please tell me that her and Ocho was playing when he asked her how old she was. I just can not believe that these two are engaged and he dont know how old she is. He cant be that stupid!!!

I disagree, Shaunie is not

I disagree, Shaunie is not coming out smelling like roses. She has some shit with her too. I often wonder what their children have to say about them acting like elementary school kids. None of them bring class to the sport of basketball. Tammie should not have laid her hands on another person based on what someone said. The only reason why she feel the need to be a bully because she does not know how to express herself with words. She need to seek help for her anger management. Even her mother and kids told her that she is full of dramma. Get a clue when your kids are acting more mature. I can only imagine how they feel around their peers, after seeing her perform unlady like. LOL! Everlyn, is nasty, and something about her mouth looks nasty. Just looking at her face makes me clinch. She looks hard in the face. Jen need to stop sucking on her damn lips. Hell we know you have big lips. She also need to stop acting like she is not still in love with Eric, hell he made your ass. Not to say what he did was right, but don't know body want an air head who thinks they are something other than humble. She turns her nose up at everything like she some pre-madonna barbie doll. Get them bumps off of your back. LOL! Instead of going out drinking and partying, how about all of them do a show where they are giving back to the community. Now that is REAL!

Everybody on this show is C-R-A-Z-Y...and that's real talk! Grown women on national tv, acting a damn fool, embarrassing their family and friends, yeah they're crazy. But it's all for the almighty dollar. Some people will sell their souls. Evelyn, Jen, Shaunie, Suzie, Royce, Tammie and Meeka are all in the same position, no one is better than the other on this show. It's so degrading, but soooo entertaining! I'll be tuning in! And Meeka is pretty...they all are beautiful and crazy, but in my opinion Royce is the coolest of them all.

Yes, meeka is pretty, but a bit airrish. Royce is the real person on the show. I like her because she does not kiss their asses. GO Royce, keep it real! Royce, dropp Susie green ass, she is not your friend. Hell is you guys robbed a bank, she would sell you down the river. She don't have your back because she is hungry, and is an opportunist. Meeka, you need to sue Tammie ass for sucker punching you. She know better than to evade someone elses space. You have a lot of evidence where she continue to threaten you (its on tape). Meeka walk away from this show because it has no substance, and a business women don't want to fall into this trap. It is not good for business.

Dear Ms. Meeka, I'm 40 years

Dear Ms. Meeka, I'm 40 years old. And I truly dissapointed at all the hate you get from other black women. I strongly believe that the reason why black men are leaving us in droves is because the nasty attitudes other black women have about themselves and other black women. Don't they know their sons hear this and we wonder why black men are with white, spanish and asian women. If you're own mother knocks black women why should her son be attracted to this? Meeka is a beautiful, deep brown skin woman and yet, black women come out in droves to tell her how unattractive she is. Meeka is also MARRIED and has two lovely children but folks seem to not be concerned that she is in the rare percentage of black women because she actually MARRIED the father of her children. And she's a business woman. I like sista's who are doing things for themselves. I also like her outfits that she wares on the show. They are stylish and classy. She kinda has like an black Jackie Onasis thing going on sometimes. And I like how the show, shows her and her husband. They do normal activities. This brotha seems to love his woman and Meeka is not on their complaining about her no good man. Mr. Meeka's husband, please continue to be classy and show love for your wife. And excuse all the other jealous, black women who can't understand a beautiful black married couple so they have to tear the wife down. Meeka, understand when you sign up for a show, they are going to edit you to make you look crazy. Please tell your husband, that I'm in the enterntainment field and what may seem like a crazy scene is just editing, slicing, and a bunch of other bull@#$@ to make folks look ignorant. The fact of the matter is Meeka is not perfect but she's new at this reality game and trying to get her feet settled in the mist of sharks.

I agree Meeka is a pretty girl. I love those big eyes. However, you explanation of why black men are leaving their race is a matter of opinion, and everyone has one. Meeka join this show because she wanted the exposure, and nothing more or less. She may say that she wanted others to see a real loving basket ball house wife and her family engagements, but you didn't have to join the show to reveal this image. Have you ever wondered why the cast immediately turned on you Meeka? Sit back and reflect. You have something that they wished they had, and you need to drop this adventure go back to doing what you were doing. Advance yourself in a more positive light. This is a sister talking to another sister.
