'Basketball Wives' Star Files for Divorce

6/27/2011 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The tumultuous relationship between Eric and Jennifer Williams -- nonstop fodder for years on VH1's "Basketball Wives" -- is coming to an end ... because Jennifer just filed for divorce.

Jennifer Williams Divorce
Williams finally pulled the trigger Friday, filing papers in Hudson County Superior Court in New Jersey. Williams, who tied the knot with Eric in the Bahamas back in 2007, cites irreconcilable differences.

Williams wants alimony, plus an "equitable" distribution of the couple's assets. 

They have no kids.

What do you mean, nonstop fodder for "years"? Basketball Wives premiered only a year ago.

And good for Jen for taking this step. Now if she can only unload negative, stank Evelyn from her life, she might actually find true peace!

Can the words "basketball wives" & "stars" really go in the same sentence? Seriously folks, if you're life is so pathetic that you have to watch shows like this or the Kardashians to look for direction it's time to go sit in your garage with the car running and the door closed.

Of course a whore like her wanted alimony. I mean she can't do anything else like the rest of them on the show. All they are, are groupies with kids or trying too doop the athletes into getting the pregnant.

Did she force him to marry her? He could have married alot other women but he decided to put a ring on her finger and actually marry her, so how is she a golddigger? She really wanted to salvage her marriage, but it wasnt a marriage, he had no respect for her by the way he talked to her and his attitude was so nasty and cold, so why should she not deserve alimony? She meant her vows, he did not. He obviously committed adultery and came and went with little obligation to her. He began to feel his celebrity too much in the marriage and judged himself to be better than her and treat her like she is beneath him, but she was his wife. He is such an idiot because he could lose it all tomorrow. I am glad she is putting that ugly mean man out of her life and trying to move on. What is with that bump on his head. Seriously Eric, you think those oher women he is committing adultery with really care about him and not his money, they are using him just like he is using them and using his celebrity and money to impress and get from them what he wants. As if he sees a hot aoman and wont say he is a ballplayer to try to get a date from her or have sex with her and then try to act like money is all they want, what did he use to get to her in the first place. Alot of these athletes bring it on themselves, use celebrity to get a woman and then cry foul if thats all she wants, quit using it to get them then.

I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions

Most people aren't aware of the almost unbelievable deals that they can get from online auction sites


The site that has the bestdeals is HtTp://tinyurl.com/savingnow


and I checked with the BetterBusiness Bureauand was told that it is all legit.How they can sell gift cards, laptops, cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90%.off I don't know.


I do know that I bought my son an iPad there for less than usd100 and my husband a usd250 Loews giftcards for 48


Why would I even think about shopping anyplace else?

She really scored on this one. Set for life! However, any wealthy athlete like this who is stupid enough to fall for the classic "gold-digger scam" probably deserves to lose half his assets. These guys should know better. They don't have to marry the ho or live with them. Sex or even a steady girlfriend is not that hard to get guys.
