The reality show Basketball Wives is causing quite the commotion because of the violence, drama and lawsuits that have been plaguing the cast over the past couple of months. Fighting and throwing some punches are nothing new for the cast, but this season, Evelyn Lozada had thrown a bottle at a new cast member and Jennifer Williams has filed a lawsuit against her former friend for slapping her across the face, leaving her feeling violated.
Well, Star Jones' ex-husband Al is often featured on the show because he is close friends with Jennifer. On one episode, he was actually encouraging Jennifer to get ready for a confrontation with Evelyn, as their ruined friendship is the focus of Basketball Wives. Star Jones herself has never been a part of it, but she is now going against the show, boycotting it because she wants the show to stop airing. "It may be 'comfortable' to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH," Star tweeted about the show. She is ready to take action about violence against women by women.
"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," Star encouraged her followers. One has to wonder how Star thinks she could be a big influence on the show and the stars. She may have a following, but so do the reality stars on the show and those fans encourage the drama.
It's good entertainment for some, so if the stars on the show aren't doing anything about it, why does Star think it is her responsibility to do something?
