A petition boycotting Basketball Wives and its many violent outbursts has garnered major support even as the show is reportedly being turned into a movie.

The creator of the petition, which targets Evelyn Lozada and her bullying ways, writes, "The violence on 'Basketball Wives' is horrible and disgraceful."

"Physical assaults, threats, verbal abuse, and harassment. VH1 is rewarding this behavior by giving Evelyn a spinoff. Don't reward negative behavior."

One rumor going around is that Star Jones is behind the boycott. Why?

  • Star Jones and Al Reynolds
  • Jennifer Williams Pic

Star's ex-husband, Al Reynolds, has been on the show lately, given his relationship with Jennifer Williams, something Jones probably doesn't appreciate.

Her vocal opinion about the show is not positive, but Star denies starting the Basketball Wives boycott campaign or even supporting it with her critiques.

"I was never encouraging anybody to boycott somebody's job," she said.

"That's not what I'm about. It just struck me really, really to the core that young girls were watching his example of women on TV and getting their self image."

Of course, Jones admits that she began talking about the boycott and the VH1 show's negativity on her social media accounts in hopes of fostering discussion.

It's unclear if this played a role in getting three Basketball Wives stars fired.

Star Jones has filed for divorce from Al Reynolds - and allow us to be the first to say: congratulations, Al!

The process actually got started late last month, as Jones shared with Entertainment Tonight:

A Shooting Star

"Several years ago I made an error in judgment by inviting the media into the most intimate area of my life," said said... to the media.

"A month ago I filed for divorce. The dissolution of a marriage is a difficult time in anyone's life that requires privacy with one's thoughts. I have committed myself to handling this situation with dignity and grace and look forward to emerging from this period as a stronger and wiser woman."*

* One that sells the details to any celebrity gossip tabloid that will pay.

It's not always so easy to see the error of your ways. Look at how long it took Stavros Niarchos to stop dating Paris Hilton.

Or Tara Conner to realize that cocaine, alcohol and representing your country as a young, hot woman just don't mix.

A Shooting Star

Fortunately, most people do come around eventually. And, by the look of this picture below, it appears as though Al Reynolds has finally realized that he married Star Jones. It's okay, Al. You were probably blinded by The View before.

But take a look at that blubbery arm now! The flesh is looser than Lindsay Lohan...

The not-at-all happy couple is celebrating Jones' birthday with a bunch of people who must have showed up at the wrong party. We're assuming guests here would prefer to have atttended the bash for Lauren Conrad instead.

Oh well. You can't get everything you want. As Reynolds now knows. After all, he probably wants a wife who isn't ugly and self-serving.
