Sponsors Start To Pull Out Of "Basketball Wives" & "Ev & Ocho" + Royce Goes IN on Tami For Tahiti Episode

Oh those "Basketball Wives."  Not only have sponsors started to take heed to the petition to get the show (and Evelyn Lozada's spinoff) off the air, but Royce Reed is taking co-star Tami Roman to task about her actions on last night's episode surrounding the Tahiti trip foolery.

 

Check it inside...

Maybe it's for the best Royce opted out of the Tahiti trip from hell that aired last night.  From the time the cast landed in Tahiti, there was tension and drama between Kesha and Tami.  All because Kesha was coughing and "not covering her mouth."  At least that's what Tami said.  Kesha felt bullied, as always, and Tami defended her own actions because she was offended by the apparent rudeness of the coughing.  Sigh.

Things escalated and fights broke out. 

Royce took to her VH1 blog today to give her 2 cents about the whole episode...and she let Tami (and everybody else except for Kesha) have it.  No surprise there.  Here's the excerpts:

I was honestly just hoping Kesha didn’t say her skin hurt. Tami seemed as though she was trying to find something to get upset about and she chose a cough. From the way the girls were seated in the car, to laughing and making faces behind Kesha’s back if you take a screen capture from that scene and mine from the van in Spain, it’s almost identical.

I’m not sure what happened to Tami, but this isn’t the woman I’ve gotten to know. To see these women gang up on someone who has done nothing to them is embarrassing. I say ganging up because NO ONE did anything to stop it. If you don’t say anything you then become part of the problem. Who cares if Kesha was scared to get in the ocean with sharks and stingrays, I don’t believe I saw any of your asses in a swimsuit jumping in the water either. How are you going to call someone else scary when at least they put on the attire instead of saying “Oh Hell NO” in confessionals?????

I applaud Suzie and Kesha for appreciating what Tahiti had to offer and attempting to stay drama free. I find it amazing when alcohol is used as liquid courage and an excuse to turn into the HULK. Most times I drink, I get emotional, horny, and just want to dance…..:side-eye: lol. But if you know that drinks cause you to have a temper, why indulge just because everyone else is? The whole scene with Tami and Kesha I shook my head. At some point you have to look at yourself and say “Damn, that wasn’t a good look. I need to change the way I speak to people and handle things because I look crazy.” If you don’t see it, your “so-called” friends have and should tell you the same. Tami, if Evelyn and Shaunie found no problem with Kesha’s questions, it wasn’t up to you to find one. Tami, if you HEARD Kesha said all these things about you, why not call out the person who told you so you can get all three parties together.

I’m sure THAT PERSON was probably sitting at that table. I have an idea of two people who could’ve said it. One is known to talk a lot, and the other is a snake in the grass. If you’re going based off the footage that was shown, Kesha said “I seriously had to just NOT go off…and honestly, like, I could’ve came at Tami and said whatever I wanted to but there’s nothing I could’ve said that would’ve made her look worse than she was making herself look…Tami is like acting a fool” …She never said she wanted to, so why are you asking her to now??? The smirking on the side by Evelyn and Shaunie is a DAMN SHAME. Grown as women talking about a damn position! Grown ass women wanting to fight with no repercussions!I HEARD about what happened in Tahiti but seeing it now is an embarrassment and the sh!t is PISSING ME OFF!!!! GROWN ASS AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN feeding into the stereotype already placed on us…plus two!!!!!!!!

 

Meanwhile, (C.B. Fleet Company) Summer's Eve feminine products have reportedly pulled out of both BBW and the upcoming "Ev & Ocho."  And Change.org is set to announce a second sponsor who pulled out next week.  Is the petition and boycott working?

I don't give a damn if

I don't give a damn if sponsors don't pull out from Jersey Shore or Mobwives! I care about the image that affects black people because we cannot afford the stereotypes especially being perpetuated by our own people! Don't try to play that tit for tat ish. This is about the degradation of our people so I want all the sponsors gone and this show off the air!

Last year Meeka said Tammi

Last year Meeka said Tammi was a bird. But then, she got support from a bunch of birds last year. Tammi looks and act like the project ghetto hood rat she is. I did not see the show last night but watched the clip on VH1 blog and Tammi need to be a shame of herself. It's terrible how she acts. She is jelouse and insecure as hell. Pretty girl but ignant not ignorant.

I wonder if sponsors will

I wonder if sponsors will start pulling out of Jersey Shore, Bad Girls Club or Mob Wives...and where can I sign a petition to end those useless shows that serves no purpose, but promote violence or are we letting the shows with mostly a white cast stay on air? And just stop the black people from making money. If you're not gonna try to stop them all you might as well do what I do and change the channel.

After you wake from that

After you wake from that dream, holla at me. When have you ever know stereotyping to be fairly distributed and viewed the same way? Never. Whites and others can do the same thing and its viewed as minor. We blacks do not have that luxury therefore we have to be mindful of the imagine that wee put forth whether we like it or not. This show is an utter disgrace.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Whites look at their antics through rose colored glasses, but as soon as black person does the same thing that's when the harsh lens come out. Saying were so aggressive, angry and ghetto. It doesn't matter that a white person can do the same exact thing and sometimes worse, it is NEVER judge the same way. There are stereotypes in all races but blacks are the most stigmatized by it. This person needs to come back to reality.

TAMMY'S ATTITUDE IS THE MAIN REASON WHY SHE DON'T HAVE A MAN! Who wants to be with someone that acts like that? People kills me when they say this bitch is real. THE ONLY REAL SHE IS, IS A REAL GHETTO BIRD! Yuck I was extremely embarrassed for her as a lady last night. Punking someone that clearly did not want drama. I hope she sees this and take a closer look at her self and engage in some much needed SOUL SEARCHING. Disappointed in the entire cast and Shaunie for standing behind such ugly behavior. BBW is pure TRASH!

We as black women have forgotten about having pride about ourselves and self worth. We would rather show our ass by fighting and cursing than to conduct ourselves as intelligent individual that come with the revise phase as we would rather be heard then seen when years ago intelligent women would had wanted to be seen and not heard.

Sadly, there will always be a string of sponsors to replace the one's that pull their ads. The reason a show goes off the air is because of bad ratings. If the public stops watching, it will be pulled. Viacom (they own VH1) doesn't care about the portrayal of black women good or bad. Their bottom line is ratings and money....

Tami is a hoodrat and has the mentality of one so i can't blame no one but VH1 for giving her a platform. She clearly can't and won't change so i just feel sorry for her more than anything. I think Tami is jealous of Keyshia and might feel threatened by her, therefore she is always trying to start stuff with her. How can tami be mad at keyshia for talking about her after she had a full out screaming match with her. Tami better milk these 15mins cuz she won't get a real job.

To "Letsgetit"@4:02 pm - May

To "Letsgetit"@4:02 pm - May 8, '12 : A few months ago I got into it with you on here about a post.....can't remember the post right now, but I remember being bothered at how you blamed black women for everything wrong with the black race. I still think you're wrong in thinking that black women are the reason for the problem(s) with the black race, but I must admit that I agree with your comment here. I think if I were a black male I'd probably have your mindset toward black women, too (keepin it all the way 100). I don't have any children, but if I did have a son and he preferred white/mixed women, I would not be mad in the slightest........I'd probably encourage him to date that way. I'm single, and I don't know that I want to spend the rest of my life with a black man............when you marry someone you marry into their family and if this site (the comment section) and Tyler Perry's movies is any reflection on the black family/people/mindset, then I don't want no parts, especially not for LIFE). So I feel you on that, all that. I want "Something New" (Sanaa Lathan & Simon Baker)....not necessarily white, but just NOT black, if that makes sense. I totally understand why you don't want to f*ck w/black women and reason that really and understandably no other race of men does either. Something New would seem better than even a good black woman, if you even believe that such a one exists. They do, but I feel you, I do. Not to make excuses for them (the black race as a whole : male and female), but they were dealt a shitty hand. It's a wonder any of them have any self esteem, are nice and kind, etc. That's alot to overcome.....for the men and women.....but for the women even moreso, i think. The dry&hard nappy hair alone is depressing and very time&money consuming......they spend 85% of their life, time, and money trying to make it resemble the preferred (white/mixed/soft/silky/curly,etc). The men can just cut it off. And that's only the hair. ..........................Yes, they are mad for a lot of reasons. Stop judging them, though. Have you ever tried to understand them? Understand their reason for the anger? Wouldn't you rather love them that judge them? Something so pitiful, you should pity, right?

As long as you speak like

As long as you speak like about any human being you'll face judgement with God about whether or not you acknowledge His existence. Whether your comment is in "being funny" or "sincerity" it's sad to see another human being speak of another in that manner. When you degrade others, with a pretense of "defending them" it speaks volumes on your character. I'm not going to take anymore time addressing it because a. You likely don't care and b. It's unnecessary if you don't see the error in your way. Regardless humans have flaws, and many people can have disgusting or inappropriate behavior, it's not race or sex thing, and if you're "not black" and/or if you're "not a woman" your above comment only proves that. I hope you take the time to do a self evaluation rather than saying (writing) such hateful messages,as it appears you need to focus more on what's actually inside you that would stir up such ignorant (lack of knowing) comments and perspectives. I pray your eyes are opened so you can be a better you. P.s. This comment is in no way meant to offend or hurt you (if it does, I apologize) hopefully it helps instead.

We're all going to face

We're all going to face judgement with God. Funny you think some will escape it. Guess it all depends on who's idea of God you're referring to. If you're referring to Jesus' idea, I wonder your judgement for how he spoke of pharisees calling them snakes, vipers, hypocrites, etc..............and in the OT God spoke very poorly of and to humans. Wonder your thoughts on righteous indignation? Not really because a. I know your kind and b. I want no parts of it. You are like the pharisee who needs to remove the beam out of your own eye first and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of mine. (Matthew 7:3-5). The pharisees were always quick to bring God up to sway people over to their own ideas and agendas, when they didn't know the first thing about Him. You remind me a lot of them by your first sentence, as if only the words and deeds of some will be judged, while others will escape the judgement because of their "works". No, every word and deed of everyone will be taken through the fire, and anything not of Him will be burned up, leaving only that which is of him. That's how THAT works. The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Who can understand it? The Lord searches the heart and examines the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.” (Jeremiah 17:9-10) So who are you to try to do it? Oh yeah, "Anonymous". And I know you're referring to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, because that's the only one that has people thinking they'll be judged on whether or not they acknowledge his existence.,,,,or who has people thinking they can go around throwing "the judgement" up in someone's face to scare them into heaven or seeing things their way. You got the wrong one, I look forward to the judgement with great anticipation, can't wait to see him face to face; nevermind the outcome, if it's only for a little while to be told I didn't make it, so long as he acknowledges me. What you know about that kind? The kind that looks forward to seeing him because a. it is by grace we have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast and b. his perfect love has caused out all fear. Thank you for your prayers, but remember what was said about that beam while you're praying for ME.

I totally agree with your

I totally agree with your comment. I also agree with Royce open letter as well. I have seen episodes of Basketball Wives, but I'm not an avid watcher; I feel like Shaunie, Evenlyn and Tami are mean girl and they are followers; you have daughters and you need to take a moment to step out your skin and ask yourself do I want someone to treat my daughter like this. Kiesha is someone daughter. I feel like at this point the show as ran it's corse Shaunie has pimped all of you and have made you all look like fools. I'm a 30 something year old women and I don't handle people on that level; if I know I can't stand to be around someone I make the decision not to come around; my 30 something year old friends do not behave in this manner. It's disgusting and what Kiesha spoke was the truth, but Evelyn and Tami has not met their match. Evenly love to say you aren't about that life apparently you aren't either. When the reunion air Tami is going to want to fight Royce, it's just crazy. The women don't appear to be ginuine friends and Suzi is a brown noser; she goes and report back like she the FEDS.

Wow, Everyone is acting as if Keisha was burned at the stake or something!!! If you've watched this show from the beginning, the ladies of the show have always been Dramatic. If there was no drama at all, it Probably wouldn't have survived this long. Just about every "Newbie" that joins the group ends up getting Hazed at some point! If they are to soft, scared, shy, fake, liars it will catch up with you on that show Period. Anyhoo, if the show is eventually no longer on the air, all the same people who are complaining now will be Bored and not have Anything to watch!!!

Really? Just because the

Really? Just because the bullying occurs does not mean its acceptable. Its like they set these newbies up just to keep the drama rollling. You call it hazing as if being on this show is some type of honor and that you have to earn your stripes in order to be able to sit at the same table with Eve and Tammi. That is wrong, its a reality show. I find it interesting that the entire RHO whatever city franchise can opperate off of the same basic premise but manage avoid fights for the most part. That franchise has successfully brought new people on the show without them having to go through this blantant bullying. Also, when BBW gets cancelled we will all be okay and find other things to watch. There was a time when it wasnt on TV, remember?
