As soon as promos aired for the season finale of Basketball Wives, people wondered what the deal was between recently divorced Jennifer and Eric Williams. During the sneak peak, Eric decided to douse his wife with a drink.
In response to the fiasco, Jen called in to Power 92 in Richmond to dish about her current situation, her troubled marriage and her playing backseat to cast member Evelyn Lozada. Check out the details from the interview below:
On her soon-to-be ex-husband Eric Williams throwing a drink in her face:
Jennifer admits she was completely shocked Eric did that to her. She said she would have never in a million years thought Eric would do something like this to her. She confirmed Eric never hit her or was physically abusive but she did endure his verbal abuse.
On “Basketball Wives” breaking up her and Eric’s marriage:
Jennifer admits that she and Eric had problems way before the show so it was a struggle for her in the beginning to sign on because she would have to be real about her failing marriage with Eric. She said the show had nothing to do with her divorce from Eric.
On Eric’s recent behavior:
Jennifer said she doesn’t even know who Eric is anymore and that he’s psycho! She said his reasoning behind throwing the drink in her face was because he was trying to cast a demon out of her. Jennifer than began quoting Eric’s tweets saying, “Jesus had to cast 7 demons out of that hoe Mary.” She said THOSE are the things that make her think he’s psycho.
On if she married Eric for money:
Jennifer said she did NOT marry for money and that was never her intention. She believes he’s saying that just trying to get under her skin. She said he will text her one day saying he stills loves her then the next day he’s calling her a hoe and a groupie.
On why she and Eric never had kids:
Jennifer admits that there were a lot of issues in their marriage and she didn’t want to bring a baby into the mix. She admits infidelity was a major issue in their marriage.
On her argument with Evelyn about Evelyn’s fiancé Chad Ochocinco:
She said she and Evelyn were friends BEFORE “Basketball Wives” so she felt that Evelyn should have come to her FIRST about it before telling Shaunie & Tami. She said she didn’t think the interview she did was bad because that was her opinion and she even told Evelyn everything she said to her face. She felt like Evelyn overreacted.
On people saying she’s always in Evelyn’s shadow:
Jennifer said she’s very low-key so sometimes people think that she’s a follower because she’s quiet.
On her businesses:
Jennifer has her own lip gloss line called “Lucid”, she’s a principal owner in a women’s fitness studio called Flirty Girl Fitness, a non-profit foundation called “Project Save The World” and she’s writing a book but they don’t show that type of stuff on the show. She said Shaunie has been fighting to get the producers to show other aspects of the girls’ lives other than them fighting all the time.
On new castmate Meeka Claxton:
Jennifer said she felt Meeka was a little too anxious when she first came on the show and got herself caught up because she would say one thing then change up her story which snowballed. She believes if Meeka had just came on the show and not talked so much, she wouldn’t have gotten into all the drama she did.
