I watch most reality shows. Watching this episode made me angry, or should I say, I felt pity for Tami and sorry for Kesha. Pity for Tami as she is obviously in need of an intense 365 day therapy session at Passages in Malibu and sorry for Kesha, because she doesn’t have a degree in handling people with a mental condition and she shouldn’t have said anything about Tami in front of the Miami Herald, New York Post, The National Enquirer – Suzie “Water Mouth, Gossip Monger” Ketcham. Tami continues with her verbal assault on Kesha and grabs her bag and states the only way she is going to get her bag back, is if she asks Tami for it. Kesha leaves and get’s as far away from Tami as humanly possible. Tami tells Shaunie, Suzie and Evelyn that Kesha will not get her bag back until Kesha asks her for her own bag. What?
Suzie: FOR THE RECORD…I had NO parts in saying anything about what Kesha said to Tami!!
There was only two people there, so Suzie is saying it’s Royce that blabbed? Hmmm Right.
On the way back to the hotel, Tami goes through Kesha’s bag, wears her sunglasses and goes through her phone. Evelyn helps her look through the phone too. Shaunie in her side interview and on the bus is laughing about everything that happened. Tami thinks Suzie did the right thing in blabbing to her. Tami explaining her actions was like watching Frankie (Keyshia Cole’s mom), Sheneneh, Drita D’Avanzo and I love New York all rolled up into one – a terrible combination of nonsense. Tami wants an apology from Kesha and to ask her for her own purse back, the one that Tami grabbed.
Back at the hotel, Tami pretends she is Kenya and gets her room key, they plan where they are going to place the dead fish as a prank/hazing.
Suzie visits Kesha and states that Kesha should apologize to Tami. Is Suzie higher that normal? Kesha obviously is not going to apologize. Suzie runs back and blabs to Tami.
Tami: She’s thirty something years old and still operating like a child.
Of course Tami is acting like a mature adult and mother of two. Tami decides to go over to Kesha’s hut. Evelyn and Shaunie stand in her way, Kesha does not answer the door. Tami leaves and Kesha lets Evelyn and Shaunie in the room. Kesha is a mess and is physically shaken due to Tami’s bull like behavior.
Tami are you on any meds, your view on reality is warped? Kesha then wants to call the cops. Suzie thinks she is stupid for doing so. Kesha goes to the front desk to report her bag stolen. Suzie tries to stop her as that will escalate the situation. Suzie doesn’t want to get in the middle of everything. Suzie, then piece of advice, shut your mouth, you flap your lips too damn much. You are always in the middle of all the drama, because you like to talk too much.
Tami comes back and states she is going to give Kesha back her belongings. Tami with all her might and glory says she doesn’t respect Kesha as she went to the front desk to report Tami. Kesha according to Tami isn’t decent as she didn’t come and talk to Tami, who as your know is so reasonable and so very approachable. Tami leaves. Shaunie and Evelyn don’t want Kesha to leave – are they serious? They didn’t stand up for her but they want her to be around Tami. As Kesha explains her pain, as being a child of mixed parentage and being bullied. They do not understand her struggles. Evelyn starts to cry, because she well and knows that Tami was beyond wrong, but she didn’t stand up for her.
Shaunie and Evelyn chat with Tami about her behavior, (sort of), no one came out and said Tami was wrong. They are both afraid of Tami and her bi-polar behavior. Shaunie doesn’t do a very good job of explaining anything to Tami. Tami states that no malice or negative intention was involved when she said Kesha didn’t look like a Kesha, but instead looked like a Lisa. Tami you don’t get to define what is offensive, if you offend someone and they say they are offended, apologize. You don’t know the history of Kesha’s reasons, neither do I, but if someone is offended be the bigger, sensible and mature person apologize and say you didn’t mean to hurt her.
On the way to swim with the dolphins Evelyn starts to cry again as they talk about Kesha’s verbal assault, she says it’s not because Tami was wrong. Evelyn you know Tami was wrong, that’s why you’re crying, you can’t even you can’t lie about that anymore.
Shaunie: We did feel so bad (smirks) but the day must go on
Suzie, Evelyn and Shaunie go swimming with the dolphins, Evelyn asks the trainer for some dead fish for their Kenya hazing. They have fun in the ocean and later at back at the hotel, Evelyn and Suzie place the dead fish, squid etc all around Kenya’s room. Shaunie kept her hands clean and hid behind the curtain, as if she had nothing to do with it, we can see you Shaunie, the curtain is see through, you may not have touched the fish but you too are an accomplice as well as the creator and executive producer of Basketball Wives.
Shaunie, Suzie and Evelyn chat with Kesha on the beach. Suzie asks if she is ok. Why the hell is Suzie asking such a stupid and late question like that. Are you ok? You weren’t concerned when Tami went off and you sure weren’t concerned when Tami wouldn’t give Kesha her purse? Shut up Suzie.
Kesha leaves the island.
Shaunie, Evelyn and Tami go on a sunset cruise. Suzie decides to stay and wait for Jennifer who is on her way to the island and have dinner with her.
Jennifer and Kenya arrive.
After the show aired Tami released this statement:
I just landed in NYC, but I did catch 2nites episode on the plane. As I said earlier, this was BAD, wrong & immature-I apologize… I’m not proud of my behavior, but I own up to it and face it. I do apologizee 2my family, my friends, my kids & 2 my cast members. The supporters who have been there, I’m sorry I let U down-this was not handled properly & I felt bad THEN and now. I simply ask that U b respectful 2my kids-they R NOT on BBW & do not control my actions on the show. Don’t become what U criticze. I would have blogged this but I wanted 2 address it as soon as I landed. Accept it or not, I acknowledge & apologize to ALL involved.
Sorry Tami, your apologies mean nothing. When you hit Meeka last season, everyone thought it was funny, because no-one liked Meeka. Now that you have berated Kesha who is likeable, now there is an issue. You apologized to your family and all involved. Apologize to Kesha and better yet don’t act like a fool on national television. You are role model to many people and you have two impressionable daughters. You can never rationalize your disgusting behavior ever. So think before you speak, don’t lash out and DO better next time.
Tami, Evelyn, Shaunie & Suzie you are all NON Factors, bullies, cowards and irrelevant.
