Matt Barnes: I Was 100% against ‘Basketball Wives’

Matt Barnes is the only active NBA player to have appeared in Basketball Wives, and evidently he's none too happy about it. He appeared on Jim Rome's radio show recently and let us know how he really feels about the TV show that gives us a glimpse into the lives of NBA wives and girlfriends. (If you haven't seen it, by the way, click here to watch Matt Barnes' appearance on Basketball Wives.)

 “I was 100% against it. Shaunie O’Neal approached my fiancée (Gloria Govan) and I was really apprehensive about it. They kept approaching my fiancée Gloria about it back and forth and back and forth and I was really against it. My fiancée talked to the producers and went through everything and felt good about it. I definitely backed her."

Derek Fisher Denies Reports of Waffle House Altercation

Lakers guard Derek Fisher strongly denied reports that he was involved in an altercation with a man at a Waffle House in Oklahoma City last week, when the Lakers were in town playing the Thunder in Games 3 and 4 of their best-of-seven first-round playoff series.

"It has been brought to my attention that media in Oklahoma City is reporting I was in an altercation with a man last week while the team was in town for the playoffs. These reports are false," Fisher said. "I was not involved in any altercation and would have hoped that the media would check their sources and facts before reporting or insinuating that I was in any way violent."

"To be clear, over a year ago, I was a witness to an altercation at a Waffle House in Oklahoma City after a regular season game," Fisher said. "The police were called after a fight broke out between two patrons. I reported what I had seen, was thanked by the police for my assistance and returned to my hotel. I was an innocent bystander and simply assisted police that evening. I will not be making any further comment on the matter."

Naked Pictures Leaked of Evelyn Lozada of Basketball Wives

It's not just NBA players that are getting caught out when it comes to private snaps going public. (Click to read about Greg Oden's doodle, George Hill's premature problem and Dorell Wright's shortcomings.) Now it turns out that Evelyn Lozada, the ex-fiancée of Antoine Walker currently appearing in VH1's Basketball Wives, took some naked photos of her own. While it's unknown exactly how long ago they were captured and sent to that special someone, they hit the web very recently and have been widely disseminated since then. All that is known is that they originated from a man she previously dated to whom she sent the photos in confidence. As we've learned recently, though, it's not too uncommon for such shots to find their way out into the wide world.

[vid] Basketball Wives: Royce Reed Dances at Evelyn Lozada’s Birthday Party

"She looks like a little girl, but she's kind of thrusting her vagina everywhere." - Evelyn Lozada on Royce Reed's dancing.

You know you want to watch the clip. Go on, click it. Nobody will know. Seriously, this clip is about as entertaining as they get. Royce Reed apparently hasn't learned from her last public performance and decides she wants to perform at Evelyn Lozada's 34th birthday party. What ensues baffles the other women of Basketball Wives and, in the process, makes for some great television.

[vid] Basketball Wives: Evelyn Lozada Plans Her 34th Birthday; Royce Reed an Issue Again

After an interesting opening episode, I was wondering what mischief the women of VH1's Basketball Wives would find themselves in for the second show. Well, in the clip below the action turns to the preparations for Evelyn Lozada's 34th birthday party, which doubles as an independence party acknowledging the end of her ten-year relationship with Antoine Walker. She and her event planner visit different spots as they decide on a venue, but the real quandary concerns whether or not to invite Royce Reed, who in the previous episode embarrassed the other basketball wives with her dancing.

Shaq to Kids: Tell Shaunie’s New Boyfriend I’ll Kill Him

Shaunie O'Neal, producer of VH1's Basketball Wives (see pictures of the ladies here) and ex-wife of Shaquille O'Neal, apparently isn't getting along so well with the big fella.  Diesel was already mad that Shaunie was snapped with her new boyfriend Marlon Yates, and the television series prompted him to seek an injunction halting its production.  The basis for that legal maneuver was a "non-disparagement" clause in Shaunie and Shaq's divorce agreement which prohibits either of the former couple making negative comments about the other.

Report: Allen Iverson Involved in Bar Altercation

The problems are still piling up for Allen Iverson.  After splitting from the Philadelphia 76ers and divorcing wife Tawanna Iverson, you couldn't blame AI for acting a little out of character.  Reports hit the gossip pages suggesting that Iverson had something of a drinking problem and that his gambling behavior had resulted in his being banned from several casinos.  The purchase of a $4.5 million house seemed to confirm the split from Tawanna, and since then we've heard very little from the former NBA MVP.

Dorell Wright Nude Photos Appear Online

After Greg Oden's doodle and George Hill's wang showed up online, I thought we'd seen the last of NBA dong for a while.  Nuh-uh.  Yet again a poor decision made about a year back has resulted in someone's junk being exposed to the world.  In this case, the baller in question is Dorell Wright, small forward for the Miami Heat.  After his girlfriend and baby mother Mia Lee posted a tweet in reference to Wright, a groupie and former hook-up responded by posting the compromising images that have put the 6'9" three in an embarrassing spot.  In the photos, Wright can be seen exposing himself during an online chat session.
