Basketball Wives Season 4: Bless Her Heart

One of the things that I've noticed about Basketball Wives is that, in the right company, they're not bad people. When the show either pairs up people and doesn't have them talk trash or allows a bit more of their home life to peek through, it changes the entire complexion of the show for the better. You get to understand who some of these people are and what they're going through, as well as finally having the chance to see them cutting loose (oops) after episode upon episode of drama. It may not change your opinion completely of a particular wife, but it dulls the blinding hatred that they can tend to drum up.

For example, I'm not a fan of Evelyn. Like, at all. Not even fractionally. If I were one of the wives on the show with her, one of us wouldn't make it back from the first commercial break. But every time that Basketball Wives focuses on her family, I have to say, she's a lot more tolerable. You can argue that it's sympathy for her current situation peeking through; I just enjoy having proof, actual video evidence, that Evelyn is a human being with feelings and capable of being compassionate. The image that she puts out (blame the editing all you want, girl, but...) is extremely nasty and vile, the high school mean girl all grown up, so having a tiny break from the catty comments is appreciated. Don't get me wrong, I don't think her proposal to have her brother-in-law and his wife renew their vows at her upcoming wedding makes Evelyn the patron saint of anything. Particularly on an episode where she talks a lot of junk about Jennifer and gets Tami to promise to protect her from jail, but footage like that makes her more human, less harshly drawn caricature. A sweet gesture is a sweet gesture, regardless of motivation and the rest of that person's behavior. Read More...
