5. The Discussion
We’ve reached a point in this franchise where Evelyn Lozada can serve in the role as moderator and neutral party. Well, initially anyway. Evelyn got right down to it, kicking off yet another discussion about a simple comment made by Shaunie that Tami blew way out of proportion. After pressing Tasha to reveal whether or not Shaunie gave her a bad impression of Tami based on a harmless comment, Tasha said, “She didn’t plant a negative seed. I just said ‘You know what? I’ll meet Tami for myself and come up with my own conclusions.’”
As Shaunie and Tami spoke to each other, Shaunie explained to Tami, “You have to take responsibility for acting a damn fool back then.” And: “You’re living [and] talking about a moment that didn’t happen. You’re talking about this phantom seed that was sown that was never sown.”
Evelyn swooped in with a “boop,” which pretty much spoke for all of us watching at hand. Tami being Tami, she took issue with Evelyn’s hand being in the hair, telling her, “Don’t put your hand up.” So what did Evelyn do? Put her hand up again. A “bitch” was thrown out, too, which ultimately led to Tami hovering over Evelyn Lozada and daring her to put her hand up again.
Evelyn sat there with her fork in hand, informing Tami of how “foolish” she looked. You see, Evelyn is now beyond that show and is angling for something more once Basketball Wives is finally put to sleep. She needn’t go back into her violent behavior as it serves no purpose.
Thankfully, Shaunie told Tami, “We’re not gonna do that. We’re definitely not gonna do that.” Tami sat her happy ass down and then other beefs were given the floor. Enter Tasha’s “head butting” comment. Evelyn was offended, but Tasha quickly informed her that she could’ve easily taken issue with the story about her husband bedding a chef being included in Evelyn’s novel with no fair warning. Evelyn didn’t disagree, but after that disclosure came another – Tasha revealing the joke about her needing a helmet on future dates. The spotlight then turned to Suzie, who got put on blast for laughing at the distasteful remark.
When asked by Evelyn if she thought it was funny, Suzie says she doesn’t find abuse funny, but laughed at the joke. That makes no sense so Evelyn shot her the look of death. She then cried and walked her merry way out of the restaurant, not seeing it for people who would make light of such a serious situation like domestic violence. That’s all for now, see you next week for the next slab of beef.
