Star Jones Wants You to STOP Watching Basketball Wives…


News flash for Star, I stopped watching the show long time ago. I could no longer stomach a group of petty, classless women fighting and degrading themselves on national television. And now, Star Jones is launching a campaign against it.

“It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH.” “I’m about to put together a group of sisters to finally ‘tell the truth’ about the image of women of color in the media,” she said. 

Star made reference to a recent episode, where Jennifer Williams was slapped.  Williams has decided to file suit against those involved, rather than responding with additional violence.

“And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn’t have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS! You NEVER give up your right not to have your ‘person’ intentionally assaulted unless you are participating in an agreed physical activity,” Star went on to write.

Star then issued a call to other women with platforms to support her movement.

“I’m asking all my high-profile, platform having conscientious sisters who STAND FOR SOMETHING to just say #ENOUGHisENOUGH & call folk out! Be mad. But think about what I said. WE ARE BETTER than that. You’re either part of the problem or part of the solution.”

So here it is CEO family: will you STOP watching the show?

    1. Daisy,
      I agree…I don’t think that it’s fair to attack Basketball Wives only … if you are going to attack BBW, attack ALL reality television shows !!! they are ALL degrading! but remember, they are ALL for entertainment … if they were problems to our community as we “claim” they are, these shows would not be receiving such high ratings as they are … i’m just saying … if they want to get on television and make a complete ass of themselves, LET THEM !

  8. These scripted shows are far from being real. I’m amazed @ how they can take something trivial and manage to turn it into some type of confrontation or big dramatic production. Enough already, society is managing to bring itself to ruins without these derogatory show adding to its demise.

      White america? Are you serious? America period! Almost all of the reality shows on television 2day are disgraceful be them black or white…you have “teen pregnacy, mob wives, BBW, keeping up with the Ho-dashians” all of them. Star is just speaking on behalf of black women because that’s what she is and that’s what she represents but this epidemic is a universal mess that boils down to money, money and more money. Propaganda to ignite the masses. a mess has no color sorry.
