'Basketball Wives'

Boycott Reunion Show

Over Face-Slap Lawsuit

EXCLUSIVE

Basketball Wives Season 4 Cast
Several "Basketball Wives" are adamantly refusing to tape the big upcoming reunion show next month, TMZ has learned -- and it's all because of the face-slap lawsuit Jennifer Williams filed against Nia Crooks.

As we reported, Jennifer is suing Nia for assault and battery over a January 21st incident at a race track in Florida -- when Nia slapped Williams in the side of the head after a nuclear argument (below). Jennifer says she was injured badly during the attack.

But according to sources at VH1, the castmates are convinced Jennifer's lawsuit was filed out of spite and desperation to dredge up drama around her character -- in the vain hope of securing a spot on the show next season. Our sources also think Jennifer's claim of emotional distress is BS because she never missed a day of shooting.

We're told several prominent castmembers have vowed to shun her completely ... refusing to even speak to Jennifer -- and are threatening not to attend the reunion show early next month if she attends.

And there's this -- the contract signed by the "Wives" castmates specifically states .... "Participant expressly assumes the risk of any physical or emotional injuries participant may suffer as a result of participant's participation in the project.""

Stay tuned.

It's kind of what tshow is about isn't it, they fight every chance they get and Shaunie just gets richer off of their buffonery. Jennifer has sat and watched drinks poured on people, and fights before so it's kind of ironic that she finally gets to feel the flames that other cast members have felt. These women, Shaunie, Evelyn and Tami aren't they 40, and griown daughters, Jesus buy a book on how to be a grown up and Tami and Evelyn need to get an etiquette book, Ocho's parents we know are gringing with getting Evelyn as a daughter-in-law. I think I would be talking to my son about toys and reality, she's truly a box of cracker jacks. Exception, no prize

These are not ladies, ladies DO NOT ACT LIKE rabid dogs.

When you hit and assault someone, the victim has LEGAL RIGHT TO SUE!

It is time VH1 takes this off the air, shame on VH1 and that Shawnee person for ever even promoting such shameful violence and the immaturity that these older women display on TV.

Ladies do not act like this, shame on all of them. Time to self reflect. You don't wear a cross around your neck, and then act like this.

Jennifer is right. You can't just slap someone because they no longer want to hang out with you. That mud duck was completly wrong to let Evelyn and Shaunie boost her up to slap Jennifer. I hate watching that show. Jennifer, you have to much class for a show like this....move on to your next venture.....

Evelyn is like a rabid dog, jumping cross tables, fight like a bar flea, this woman has no class whatsoever & Jen should sue, everytime any of them come on that show they need to watch out for her cause their livbes are in full danger. Wonder what her daughter & Chad think of her messy butt @ 39 years of age always fighting like a hood rat

The thing is Nia or whatever the hell her name is isn't a cast member and I believe she was brought on the show just for the purpose of doing what she did, so yes Jen has EVERY right to sue. Who do they think they're fooling, if they want to keep the show going, they will do the reunion...hell half of them refuse to tape with Royce, including Shaunie, so if you're going to be that way, just do away with the show altogether.
