“Basketball Wives” Jen Responds To Ex-Husband Throwing A Drink In Her Face

As soon as promos aired for the season finale of Basketball Wives, people wondered what the deal was between recently divorced Jennifer and Eric Williams. During the sneak peak, Eric decided to douse his wife with a drink.

In response to the fiasco, Jen called in to Power 92 in Richmond to dish about her current situation, her troubled marriage and her playing backseat to cast member Evelyn Lozada.  Check out the details from the interview below:

On her soon-to-be ex-husband Eric Williams throwing a drink in her face:

Jennifer admits she was completely shocked Eric did that to her. She said she would have never in a million years thought Eric would do something like this to her. She confirmed Eric never hit her or was physically abusive but she did endure his verbal abuse.

On “Basketball Wives” breaking up her and Eric’s marriage:

Jennifer admits that she and Eric had problems way before the show so it was a struggle for her in the beginning to sign on because she would have to be real about her failing marriage with Eric. She said the show had nothing to do with her divorce from Eric.

On Eric’s recent behavior:

Jennifer said she doesn’t even know who Eric is anymore and that he’s psycho! She said his reasoning behind throwing the drink in her face was because he was trying to cast a demon out of her. Jennifer than began quoting Eric’s tweets saying, “Jesus had to cast 7 demons out of that hoe Mary.” She said THOSE are the things that make her think he’s psycho.

On if she married Eric for money:

Jennifer said she did NOT marry for money and that was never her intention. She believes he’s saying that just trying to get under her skin. She said he will text her one day saying he stills loves her then the next day he’s calling her a hoe and a groupie.

On why she and Eric never had kids:

Jennifer admits that there were a lot of issues in their marriage and she didn’t want to bring a baby into the mix. She admits infidelity was a major issue in their marriage.

On her argument with Evelyn about Evelyn’s fiancé Chad Ochocinco:

She said she and Evelyn were friends BEFORE “Basketball Wives” so she felt that Evelyn should have come to her FIRST about it before telling Shaunie & Tami. She said she didn’t think the interview she did was bad because that was her opinion and she even told Evelyn everything she said to her face.  She felt like Evelyn overreacted.

On people saying she’s always in Evelyn’s shadow:

Jennifer said she’s very low-key so sometimes people think that she’s a follower because she’s quiet.

On her businesses:

Jennifer has her own lip gloss line called “Lucid”, she’s a principal owner in a women’s fitness studio called Flirty Girl Fitness, a non-profit foundation called “Project Save The World” and she’s writing a book but they don’t show that type of stuff on the show. She said Shaunie has been fighting to get the producers to show other aspects of the girls’ lives other than them fighting all the time.

On new castmate Meeka Claxton:

Jennifer said she felt Meeka was a little too anxious when she first came on the show and got herself caught up because she would say one thing then change up her story which snowballed. She believes if Meeka had just came on the show and not talked so much, she wouldn’t have gotten into all the drama she did.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
