‘Basketball Wives’: Kenya Bell talks Tami, Jennifer and girl fights

She’s not afraid of the other women

Kenya Bell has had her hands full on season 4 of ‘Basketball Wives‘ as her fight with Kesha has now spilled out onto Evelyn ending in a nasty exchange of words and wine bottles being thrown by Evelyn.

The one woman that’s been standing up for Kenya through out her fights with the other women has been Jennifer, someone that she’s cultivated a strong friendship with.  In a recent interview with Juicy Magazine, Kenya spoke about her friendship with Jennifer and explains what it is about her that Kenya really respects.  She said;

“Jen has been the only person in the group that has been consistently nice to me and I appreciate that. Because of that, I consider her someone that I can become friends with. It’s soooo sad that they have a “mob” mentality and because Jen refuses to “join the crowd” and hate me like they have decided to do before they even got to know me, all of a sudden they say I idolize her. It’s their way of trying to make Jen not like me. I’m so proud of Jen for being an individual.”

The one person whose actions really surprised Kenya was Tami talking about her behind her back.  Kenya said;

“I’m very surprised to see the footage of Tami talking bad about me behind my back. I still feel that she has a good heart, that’s why she stepped in between Evelyn and I. Because of the supposed “stabbing” that my husband accused me of, I really didn’t want to have to hurt Evelyn on national television, so I appreciated that. But as a fellow mother of two, it’s very disappointing that she was so mean and hurtful knowing she went through the same things I’m going through on the show.”

When Evelyn began taking off her earrings at the restaurant before the wine bottle throwing smack down occurred, viewers were wondering why Kenya wasn’t getting up out of the way.  She said;

“I’ve been professionally trained to fight thanks to my Dad. I have no fear of any of them and all of their bullying, negativity, and pure haterism. It’s sad that as women, they aren’t supporting my efforts to be independent as a woman and a mother, especially after I spent years helping my husband make it to the NBA and he’s chosen to ruin his life. [The cast] can talk all they want, as long as neither of them put their hands on me, they have nothing to fear.”

On the last episode we saw Jennifer and Royce squash their differences and become friends again – could Kenya and Evelyn be next?  Stranger things have happened.
