If you are a true Basketball Wives fan, you’ll be happy to hear that Evelyn and Jennifer have reunited. Too bad it took five years and (very sadly) the loss of Jennifer’s mother to bring these besties back together. Does this mean that Jennifer will permanently return to BBW as well?
During their talk, the two say they can’t pinpoint what happened that made them not speak. But we can. Let’s look back at the duo’s break-up.
Back in 2011, Jen gave an interview that Ev found very shady. In the interview, Jen called Ev’s (then) fiancé, Chad Ochocinco, an attention whore. She also said that Ev just got out of a bad situation and questioned if she really wanted to go back down that road.
Evelyn felt betrayed that Jen would even discuss Chad in an interview, but Jen didn’t think she did anything wrong. We watched as the two struggled to keep the friendship, but eventually it became clear that the trust was gone. That was the end of the friendship between Evelyn and Jennifer.
Enter Nia Crooks. We all remember Evelyn’s assistant, Nia.
In 2012, Evelyn’s Assistant, Nia, slapped Jennifer in the face on camera, resulting in a law suit filed by Jennifer.
Quick history lesson: The two were in an argument over how much Jennifer had changed. Nia accused Jennifer of being fake (on camera, of course) and asked her if she needed to be smacked in her “f—ing face” to wake up. Jennifer replied, “Yea, yea. I wish you would.”
So, Nia smacked her. Afterwards, Jen called Nia a “bomb b–ch” because she lived in a 2-bedroom apartment, which led to Evelyn jumping over a table to fight Jennifer.
Jen sued Nia but waited until the reunion to do so. Evelyn was very upset with Jennifer throughout the reunion. Then came the polygraph.
Both ladies were asked a series of questions about things that occurred throughout season 4, the most important being did they missed their relationship with the other. The polygraph revealed they did.
We thought they would immediately reunite, but then fans saw their lives move on while BBW moved on with other cast members. Like most, this became a story of the past. Until last night’s season 6 episode.
