Basketball Wives Royce Reed appeared on the hit reality show, she has son with NBA baller Dwight Howard. For the last few years, these two have been going back and forth in lawsuits over there son and it looks like they have resolved their issues.
When Royce joined the show, a lot of the other women didn’t like or accept her because she used to be a gymnast, cheerleader, and dancer for professional basketball teams. The ladies felt in their mind, she was competition and all she wanted to do was nab a baller, which she did but they were concerned that she would be interested in their men because she danced for NBA teams. Cheerleaders and NBA players weren’t allowed to date but Royce and Dwight found away to get around that rule and that’s how there son was conceived.
Royce studied Theater Education and Humanities at Florida A&M University. Shortly thereafter she met Dwight Howard and was the girlfriend of one of the best NBA centers for Orlando Magic. The two of them have a son named Braylon, born in 2007 and he is such a cutie. Royce is definitely not a dummy,she founded her own burlesque dance company called Fantashique. She is also an aspiring actress, but I’ve never seen her in any movies, sitcoms or commercials after she left the reality show.
She just released her first book ” College Girls,” which seems interesting, I wonder if this is a book is about her college years. Royce has always been energetic, she’s a fighter, don’t come for her and she won’t come for you. Royce was one of those girls who always had a boyfriend, it seemed like every season of the show, she was in love with a new man. She craved attention but this is a girl who was raised by her dad, so her wanting and needing attention from a man was kind of weird to me because she got that from her dad.
When Royce and Dwight were dating, after she learned that she was pregnant, she found him cheating on her with another Orlando Magic dancer which is the reason the two split. Dwight was out cold but so was that dancer, she knew Royce was pregnant by him, these THOTS are thirsty and they don’t care who they hurt as long as they get what they want. Dwight was ordered to pay her $40K a month in child support. But, Dwight won a defamation case against Royce in 2010, when a Florida judge ruled that she violated a court order forbidding her from mentioning him in the media. That was a dummy move, he was watching her like a hawk.
The one thing I liked about Royce, she spoke her mind, she didn’t allow these women to bully her and she held her own. She walked away from the show because she felt like she should have been making more money than she had. She felt like she did more than Shaunie and she brought up the ratings, but Shaunie was and still is Executive Producer, so I’m not exactly sure how she came to that conclusion but with that said, she decided to walk.
Royce is living her life, just released her book, she and Dwight have decided to work together as parents and not as enemies, things seem to be working well for the tiny spitfire.
Love After Lock Up
WeTv’s new reality show, “Love after lock up,” is very entertaining and very informative. Ex-gang banger Lamar meets fiancee Andrea’s kids but they fear for her safety. Andrea has been dating this man for six years while incarcerated. It seems to me that she very desperate to have a man just to say that you have a man. That man can be using that whack ass line on anybody.

Which we doubt, she’s trying to secure a bag from anybody. Johnna confronts Garrett after he stays out all night with his friends. I mean what did she expect?

Garrett finally popped the question on Johnna’s birthday. The awaited proposal and big ring was everything Johnna hoped for. Except, when she broke the news to her dad, he wasn’t exactly happy, just a bit confused. Johnna’s dad says she has always sought instant satisfaction her entire life and that he’s had enough of it. In his opinion, Garrett only just got out of prison and Johnna is pressuring him to meet her at the altar way too soon. Now, Johnna might be second-guessing Garrett’s motive behind the proposal altogether.
Last week, Scott headed to pick up Lizzie from prison on her release date, but she wasn’t on the parolee list. Scott was devastated, he didn’t know what to believe. Was Lizzie pulling a trick on him all along or was something worse at play? After meeting with Lizzie’s attorney, Scott found out that she’s facing more hard time behind bars and he’s partially to blame. He’s not the blame, these are her decisions, you ca’t stop a person for being who they are.
On Lamar’s release, Andrea drove from Utah to California to find her fiancé so that they can start their lives together. With the another baby mama in the drama, things were off to a rough start, but the plan has always been for Lamar to spend six months in Los Angeles County post-release before moving to Utah to wed Andrea and join her family. Now that Lamar’s been out and had more time to understand the conditions of his parole, he’s learned about a major restriction that’s going to devastate Andrea. He can’t leave the state because of his parole. This woman packed up her clothes and her kids clothes to drive to his home state to meet the kids. She seems so desperate, holding on to a man who was just released from prison. She has to do better than that, she is her daughters role model and she should act accordingly.
Married To Medicine Recap!
Married To Medicine Recap!! Dr. Heavenly claims to be a relationship expert but she needs to stick with being a dentist or maybe going back to college to understand what a relationship expert really is. What qualifies her as being a relationship expert, because she calls her husband “daddy?”
I have much respect for Dr. Damon, he is always calm, very humble but he is the King in his castle, he never raises his voice but he stands his ground and supports his wife whether she is wrong or not. Dr. Heavenly is certainly blessed to have Dr. Damon as her husband, but she goes too far. She can be as outspoken as she wants too but the questions she asked Toya and Dr. Eugene was not her business and I applaud Toya for going off. Yes we see Toya and for us, she does seem a little disrespectful towards her husband but we see more of that coming from Quad towards her husband. The questions she asked the couple were for her benefit and not for the couples.
Dr. Simone and Cecil have always planned the couple trips through out the years and they have always been informative and helpful, they have always participated with their own issues but Dr. Heavenly refused to share any of her own problems with the group and that wasn’t fair. She claims that the issues she and her husband have are minor, bull that is bull donkey. No marriage is perfect and neither is hers.
Once she began to ask questions she seemed to pushed everyone’s buttons, it was a disaster on the beach! Jackie finally breaks down emotionally and allows herself to be open with Curtis in front of the group but Curtis doesn’t seem to see the big picture. He married a doctor, she knew she was a workaholic but for Dr. Heavenly to ask Dr. Jackie what did the other woman he cheated with do that she didn’t do? That is a hurtful question which shouldn’t have been shared for the group, but shared with Dr. Jackie and Cecil. Dr. Jackie was a trooper though, she opened up, I don’t fault her for wanting to fight for her marriage, I just wish Curtis would fight for her just a bit more.
Dr. Simone and Cecil hit the fan, especially when Dr. Simone asked him if it was okay for him to invest their money without discussing it with her first? Cecil went ham, he got loud, he told Heavenly that he and his wife have discussed it, the situation was over but Heavenly kept pushing. He stormed off the beach, he felt bamboozled but he acknowledged that he was wrong. Cecil and Dr. Greg followed him and they calmed him down. He apologized to his wife and the group but this is not over, Dr. Simone has already filed for divorce.
Quad and Greg are in a rock and a hard place. I feel what Quad is saying, she just wants appreciation and as her husband he can’t continue to throw up the fact that he takes care of her, he’s supposed too but Quad is very disrespectful to her husband and its embarrassing. Maybe if she shows his appreciation for her, maybe their marriage can last. Paying bills for the both is what a man is supposed to do, he can’t continue to throw that in her face when she has a job and college educated.
Mariah shares with Dr. Jackie that she has been where she is now. Yes, her husband has cheated on her and its okay to fight for your marriage. Mariah definitely impressed me by sharing her story and Dr. Jackie was definitely appreciative that Mariah opened up and shared her story.
If it wasn’t for Dr. Damon, this trip would have been a disaster. Heavenly likes to push buttons and with these ladies, it always turns into conflict. Now that Dr. Simone and Cecil are divorcing, who will plan their next couples treat? Please don’t let it be Dr. Heavenly, she is too shady for me.
