This season’s “Basketball Wives” has been anything but dull with all of the drama that saturates each episode, but the latest issue, involving former NBA player Eric Williams ex-wife, Jennifer Williams, and Chad Ochocinco‘s fiance, Evelyn Lozada, looks as if it could derail the show: Due to Jennifer’s lawsuit against Lozada’s assistant, who slapped her during taping, several castmembers are refusing to appear on the reunion show if Jennifer attends, according to TMZ.

On January 21st, Jennifer was slapped on the left side of her face by Lozada’s assistant, Nia Crooks, outside of a Florida racetrack. Crooks was arguing with Jennifer over her perceived ditching of old friends for new friends (Jennifer used to be BFF’s with Lozada and Crooks.) Soon after Jennifer asked Crooks why she was even talking, the assault occurred. Watch the melee here:
In retaliation, Williams filed a lawsuit against Crooks, alleging she was badly injured in the attack. And even though Jennifer was indeed publicly assaulted for all to see, some of the cast feels that Jennifer’s lawsuit is a vain attempt to stay relevant and promotable on the hit show. TMZ reports:
But according to sources at VH1, the castmates are convinced Jennifer’s lawsuit was filed out of spite and desperation to dredge up drama around her character — in the vain hope of securing a spot on the show next season. Our sources also think Jennifer’s claim of emotional distress is BS because she never missed a day of shooting.
While Jennifer’s lawsuit is sure to face challenges because all “Basketball Wives'” participants signed a document, which states that “participant expressly assumes the risk of any physical or emotional injuries participant may suffer as a result of participant’s participation in the project,” why is there such a unanimous rejection of Jennifer when Tami Roman also filed a lawsuit against Lozada over creating and selling T-shirts that were entitled, “You’re A Non F’n Factor B!tch“?
The “slogan” came in to fruition after Lozada and Roman fought on season 2 over Lozada’s admission that she had indeed slept with Roman’s ex-husband, former NBA star Kenny Anderson. Although Roman was stubborn about dropping the suit, cast mates didn’t shun Tami and demand that she drop off the show. Roman eventually canceled the suit, after Lozada and her were able to finally come to an agreement.
