Vixen Reality Files: BBW5 Episode 3 Recap -- Inappropriate Questions & Messy Conversations
This week on Basketball Wives the awkward dinner fiasco continues. Meanwhile we see that Tami's and Shaunie's friendship may be suffering. Check out some highlights from this weeks episode after the jump.
The episode picks up from last week with an eager Suzie asking Tasha about rumors that her husband, Stephon Marbury, cheated on her with their former chef. Tasha admits to the rumor, letting the ladies know they were true. To top it off, she also admits to paying the mistress off to keep her quiet. At this point the dinner is very awkward. However, Tasha handles the situation well.
While the evening with Tasha and the ladies went well, something just doesn't sit right with Tami. She meets with Shaunie to let her know she's tired of being associated with being negative after speaking to Tasha about being coached on meeting her. Tami feels strongly that Shaunie and Evelyn might've planted a bad seed in Tasha's head prior to them meeting. Much to our surprise, Shaunie stands by her words and further points out the issue brought to her attention should not be one, at all. With nothing resolved, the ladies agree to disagree.
Tami meets with her cousin, Shauna, under the impression that she would be there for a few laughs and discuss Shauna's issues, if any. To her surprise, Shauna flips the script to see if the hard-shell Tami is doing okay. Tami expresses that her mother's condition has worsened and has been diagnosed with liver cancer revealing that she has about nine months left to live. Shauna consoles Tami as she cries and wonders if her mother would be proud of her accomplishments before she passes.
Suzie meets with Tasha and apologizes for the intrusive questions at dinner and reveals that it was Tami's idea to pry. Shocked from the information Suzie brings, Tasha lets it all go and agrees to start off fresh. The two decide to ride together to Evelyn's birthday party but the discussion about Evelyn's love life goes awry when Tasha jokes that Evelyn should "wear a helmet" before dating again. Suzie is shocked by the comments but laughs it off.
Everyone is partying at Evelyn's PETA birthday party, all except for Tami who does not show up. We learn that Tami was also interested in PETA adding her to their campaign which Evelyn was rewarded. Could this be the reasoning behind Tami's absence? Maybe we'll find out next week.
