Former co-star of the VH1 reality series, What Chilli Wants, Tiona Smalls, is not too fond of one of the programs her show used to be paired with on Sunday nights. Speaking with Vibe Vixen to promote her new book, Men Love Abuse, Tiona lashed out at the hit reality series, Basketball Wives. Tiona said: “I don’t watch Basketball Wives anymore for the simple fact that it lowers your IQ. I watched the show because my fans loved it and to watch with them, but I don’t like anyone on that show. Everyone [on the show] plays too tough. Staring at a bunch of weak b*tches all day? I don’t have time for that.”
She went on to say, “Shows like that are turning our children into whores. I am finding that they are turning your kids in obsessive angry whores.”
Tiona just so happens to be friends with Meeka Claxton, who appeared on last season of Basketball Wives. According to Tiona: “Meeka Claxton has a wonderful husband, two beautiful daughters and she lives in a mansion in Long Island. She’s doing it, and the reason why they don’t want her on the show is because they don’t want to show that. They want to show b*tches renting out condos. They don’t really have the best interest of black women on that show in mind.”
Funny, you’d think at the very least the overuse of the word “b*tch” would bond Tiona with at least two of the Basketball Wives cast members.
