Basketball Wives Producers to Sue Jennifer Williams?

by at . Comments

Producers of VH1's Basketball Wives are thinking about filing a lawsuit against cast member Jennifer Williams for publicly trashing the reality show.

After Jennifer Williams sued Nia Crooks for slapping her in the face while taping an episode (below), VH1 reportedly became absolutely livid with her.

Now producers are ready rebut Williams' legal and media rampage, during which she said the show portrays African-American women negatively.

Producers feel Williams' lawsuit is frivolous - her contract says she waives such a right to sue based on physical confrontations, the network says.

Moreover, her explicit show-bashing is in violation of her contract, which forbids cast members from doing media appearances or press without approval.

Or speaking negatively about the show, which the nut job clearly has.

VH1 feels J-Dubs is "ruining the brand" they worked so hard to build, which is hilarious, but actually not a legal stretch if she's in breach of contract.

Crooks, for her part, was charged with battery for the slap. Really.

Hold up! Shauni should not be talking at all. Shauni just mad because Jennifer has spoking the truth about the show called Basketball Wives. Don't be mad at someone when you have done bad yourself. I am very happy for Jennifer, for doing the right thing on filing a lawsuite against that fuck up show anyway. I will not be watching next season, because some of these women on that show have giving women like me a bad name.

Is Shaunie being sued too because she has spoken negatively about not just the show but the actual PRODUCERS. She's gone to the media and said THE PRODUCERS are editing the show to look bad, at the last reunion SHAUNIE said the PRODUCERS are the ones cutting out all the positive things they do on the show like charity work, shauine said she wants to show more positive things but THE PRODUCERS are stopping that, Shaunie's been throwing the producers under the bus and blaming them for it being so horrid, so tell me, Did Vh1 approve shaunie saying that to the media? Tell me is Jennifer being abused on the show and speaking out for justice really more worthy of her being fired and sued instead of shaunie? So if they not suing shauine, the one who is actually part of their sick disgusting team, then they don't need to spend a single minute even considering suing Jennifer. Talk about a team of scandalous dirt bags.

I'M GLAD JEN DID FILE THE POLICE REPORT. THAT CHICK NEED TO GO TO JAIL OR GET A FINE AND LET SEE IF HER BOSS PAYS IT. I THOUGHT WHEN THIS SHOW CAME OUT IT WAS GOING TO GIVE THE YOUNGER BASKETBALLS WIVE SOME KNOWLEDGE LIKE GET A FEW DEGRESS HAVE A LIFE OF YOU OWN AND HAVE SOMETHING TO FALL BACK ON IF THE MARRIAGE DOESN'T WORK. i THINK jEN IS A VERY CLASSY LADY. i'M GLAD TO SEE ROYCE DOING HER THING AS WELL. I;M A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED IN SHAUNIE SHE SEMED SO CLASSY BUT LETS NOT FORGET SHE WAS TAKING SHAQ'S MONEY AND HIDING IT AND PUTTING IT IN FAMILY MEMEBERS NAME. EVELYN REALLY NEEDS HER ASS DUSTED. LET'S SAY A PRAYER FOR THESE LADIES

The ladies on the Basketball wives are only living up to the expectations of "high" ratings. Shaney Oneil, is a business woman & understands the concepts of a successful reality show. Without controversal topics & Catt fight confrontations, no one would be interested in the show. So, keep in mind, Jennifer was fully aware of the clause and I am sure she wasn't complaining when she got that check "pay check" slapped in her face ( no pun intended). Im just saying.....

To all of you people ao over dramatic: if Jen had an issue with the clause she should jave never signed the contract. Before when tami and eve fought and royce was the center of eves animosity no one was making blogs and petitioning and if you have a problem with the show dont watch it VH1 is mindless entertainment if youre looking to learn something form these people then youre looking in the wrong place....go to the food network. Yall need to stop thinking that freedom of speech is supposed to be something to hide behind meaning you can talk shit and slander people and nothing wont happen. You either be about whay youre Talking or you sit quietly because you aint acting like a lady if you Talking shit so dont confuse acting like a lady with filing a lawsuit instead of fighting when you degrading somebody verbally classy is being all around a lady not a trash Talking scary female

Taking into account that this reality show is Jennifer's 'job'. Every person has the right to work in an eviroment that is free of hostility, violence & harassment. It's a violation of her human liberties for producers to allow for the violence towards her to continue w.out her being able to take legal action to depend herself. Evelyn is a rabid animal.. a beast!! Who cares if she even gets help...she needs to be off tv...she's a liability.

The producers & vh1 should be ashamed of themselves!! to include a clause that states they waive the right to legal action, directly creates a hostile environment when Animals like Evelyn throw bottles, and throw punches. It's vulgar behavior that is displayed and truely sick for producers to encourage & to allow. Other reality shows throw people off the show when someone is bullied, struck, or harmed....but not this show...just sick! Jennifer may have her faults, but she is the only one who keeps it classy. At what point does violent behavior cross the lines?? Shaunie and the rest of the producers are despicable to 'set up' Jennifer or other cast members to be harmed.
