‘BBW’ Producers May Give Jennifer Williams The Boot Over Lawsuit

The drama never seems to end on the VH1 hit reality show “Basketball Wives” (BBW).  Since Jennifer Williams is suing Evelyn Lozada’s assistant Nia Crooks over a slap in the face, now the show’s producers are considering dropping Williams  from the show, reports TMZ.

Williams, who brings the drama to the show with her stuck-up ‘tude, had a physical altercation with Crooks on January 21 in the VIP suite at the Gulfstream Park racetrack in Florida.  The slapfest aired on April 16.  The lawsuit alleges assault and battery and contends that Crooks was “negligent, reckless and careless,” according to US Weekly.  Now the “BBW” producers are reportedly not happy with the potential legal embroilment and are dumbfounded as to why Williams is suddenly making an about-face with regards to fighting on the show, when she never voiced any objection to it in the past.

Before Crooks lost it, Williams said, “Someone needs to put a number on this bitch and let her race around the track because she’s acting like an animal.” After the assault, Williams claimed that Crook’s slap caused “serious injuries” and she “suffered pain, shock, and mental anguish.”

According to TMZ, “BBW” producers are speculating whether Williams is just trying to reignite her character in an effort to try and save her dwindling storyline.  Previously, Williams’ drama heyday occurred when she went through a messy divorce with her former NBA player husband Eric Williams. At the time, Williams was trying to adjust to living la vida loca as a single gal with her then partner-in-crime Lozado.

Now as Season 5 continues to unravel, the show’s producers are reportedly feeling that Williams’ days with the show might be numbered because of the lawsuit against Crooks, which could very well land her right on the unemployment line.  “Filing broad lawsuits when you are as much to blame for the drama is not the way to get your contract extended,” a source confided to TMZ.
