The drama on Basketball Wives seems to have finally crossed the line from ratings-booster to public disgrace. A group of fans lead by—who else—Star Jones have launched a petition to stop the insanity on the show, in particular calling out ish-starter Evelyn Lozada for her “bullying.” The petitioners want to make Evelyn pay for her bad behavior by calling on network execs to cancel her spin-off show, Chad & Ev.

The petition reads:

Evelyn Lozada is a bully. 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.

This is not a hate petition against Eveyln Lozada. We simply will not support violence. It hurts to see violence amongst women on television for entertainment purposes. It is not ok for women to hit each other on TV.

As far as we recall, it takes two to tango, but, if you feel so inclined

I hate basketball wives and I say cancel this circus freak show. Ev and Tammi takes wild kingdom to another level. Even the animals take a break sometime but these two idiots just keeps on going like the energizer bunny. Shaunie is a distasteful peace of crap herself to sale out to such mess. I will not watch this trash anymore, someone get me a pen, I will sign and so will my collegues.

I can’t wait until Evelyn get’s a dose of her own medicine. Karma is a WHORE with raging herpes. Until then, we’ll move forward and then enjoy the train wreck that is coming for her. God don’t like ugly and she’ll pay for her behavior one way or another. It’s just a matter of time.



carol Said on

evelyn and tammy(common letters on purpose) makes me sick. To think they have daughters who will see their actions. I have stopped watching a long time ago.



Gen Reel Said on

Get this ugly show off the air. A bunch of uneducated and violent thugs like Evelyn, Tami should not be seen on TV. They act like animals and that Tami is actually proud of being a bully. these two women are raising young girls and they think using their hands on other people and bullying grown adults is normal. Get these animals off the tv and let’s see more women like Jennifer Williams. This show is a disgrace. Stop watching it.

I agree…It is very degrading to black women’s image. I love ” La La’s full Court’! it more inspiring and realistic.



tingz22 Said on

eveyln is ridiculous i think she should get whats coming to her. she is a wanna be tami and i do think she should be kicked off the show because what she is doing to jenn isn’t right.she is acting like a child that wants attention.

It’s called tv for a reason. To entertain you. If you don’t like it, change the channel. I’m sure you have a few hundred other channels you could watch.
You people are sorry. Try petitioning to end just one of the many problems in this country today! I don’t understand how you all have the time and energy to invest in such unimportant issues. I guess you all are rich just like Star Jones, who obviously has nothing better else to do with their time and money other than seek attention probably with hopes in getting her own reality show.
SUCH LAMES YOU ARE!!!!!!!!!

This whole show is a disappointment to women and mothers.

I am saddened and disgusted by this show and Shaunie is laughing all the way to the bank. We have young girls fighting each other and videotaping it. We have “mean girls” and vicious cliques in Junior High school and High Schools. This show is so horrible on so many levels. This is why I have very few friends. These women are evil, vicious demented, sick, sadistic, and thrive on “preyin on the weak”. Tami is the Epitome of Satan’s little Handmaiden. She will definitely suffer the wrath of God. Evelyn, Suzie and Shaunie are just as bad. How low we have sunk as a society to allow this mess on National Television. Thank God for postive shows that inspire, uplift, encourage and motivate. I feel sorry for the young girls that watch this horrible programming and think this is way that mature women should behave. These women need help.

Debo Said on

I don’t know where to begin 1st. why is the show called BASKETBALL WIVES



MsL Said on

What is the purpose of this show? Are we to accept watching a young woman being bullied and degraded entertainment? This show highlights all the negative behaviors of woman who seem to have lost their souls or sold them for money. They bring shame to themselves. My heart goes out to all the young people who have chosen to end their lives because of people who act like Evelyn, Tami and Shaunie but I know they will reap what they sow. Karma is for real!



patricia johnson Said on

I think its unfortunate that grown Women / Mothers are acting in this manner and think its cute, even if its scripted, they need to do better. And bullying is such a big problem these days to the point where kids take their lives why is this show allowed to glorify BULLIYING? Tami and EVelyn both have girls: i wonder what there reaction would be if the tables were turned and do they allow their girls to watch this mess they call acting on tv.

but do you see the way Evelyn is spoken to by Chad? he has no or little respect for her and she is flattered by all the little nonsense he says.

I would love to know how their children feel about the way the act. Women are degraded enough and to be degraded by another woman is just wrong. as much issues as Tami has endured she needs to act better..

LISA Said on

There is a world wide campaign against BULLING. Evelyn and Tami both are a prime example of what a bully is. Both women are discussing and should be removed from the show all together. They encourage young girls to handle situations by bulling and being belligerent.



dd Said on

Evelyn is too too “m-13″ mentality and that should not be aired or encouraged. Then the next minute they have her speaking like she’s an intelligent progressive women who never participated in the prior scene. She’s not intelligent enough to be both, she’s just plain “gangster” in the worst way. Her asst. getting involved was too ridiculous, she shouldn’t have even been on camera and clearly wouldn’t have been if not for her violence. It sank to a new LOW, and as a Black women, I can’t do it anymore. I haven’t watched since the slap. It’s evident Evelyn is jealous of Jennifer. Shaunie O’Neal doesn’t carry herself that way, so why is she friends, even on the show, with these kind of women. Is it anything for ratings and money, apparently! Shame on her!!! ALSO, EX-GIRLFRIENDS AND CHEERLEADERS ARE NOT WIVES, WHY ARE THEY EVEN ON THE SHOW. NEWS FLASH; THEY SHOULD NOT BE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
