'Basketball Wives' Producers

Jennifer Williams' Suit Is a

HUGE Slap in Our Face

Jennifer Williams
' "face-slap" lawsuit is the giant shovel digging her reality TV grave ... TMZ has learned ... 'cause we're told "Basketball Wives" producers are PISSED!

Sources close to production tell TMZ ... Williams was already on thin ice with the show -- even before her slaptastic showdown with Nia Crooks -- but now that she has filed a lawsuit ... that ice is breaking FAST.

We're told producers think the suit is BS ... claiming Jennifer never had a problem with fighting before and insist this is a desperate publicity stunt to keep her storyline interesting -- securing her a place in season 5.

But a source tells us the stunt is not working, adding, "Filing broad lawsuits when you are as much to blame for the drama, is not the way to get your contract extended."

Ouch ... now that's gotta sting.

It's time that the Producers go back and show the re runs of the episodes when Evelyn called Royce a BUM B##### over and over!!!! Show the clip when she talked about Royce's clothes and hair and said thatvRoyce didn't have anything. Show the clip when Evelyn was going to sue Tammy when she came in her shop and she said she would sue her. Evelyn needs to be stopped before she hits the wrong woman! No one should be bullied and assaulted. That is breaking the law and no TV show should be able to allow any one to get away with breaking the law. People are watching and Evelyn and anyone else should be punished for breaking the law. She threatened Jennifer with bodily harm over and over and should be charged with that!! Evelyn has a Bum Mentality and an inferiority complex . You don't know what Jennifer is thinking only what you are thinking and evidentially Evelyn thinks Jennifer is better than she is. I hope all those Bum Minded Bullies get sued or locked up!!! Play those Clips Mr. and then see what Ms Bum Minded Evelyn has to say about her actions. UGH!!

Nia needs to do jail time for assult. Jennifer didn't do anything to her, for her. She's acting out because of Evelyn. Evelyn could careless about Nia being from a poor bake ground. She doesn't like Jennifer and she's using whatever she can to be a true heartless which. She's the same low life that sleeps with married men and has the nerve to tell the ex-wife she's a non M - F factor. She is tacky, pathetic and makes puertorican woman look Very bad. She is miserable and should consider she has consequences coming her way.

They really hate Jennifer. They want to be able to say and do anything to her...and I am proud of Jennifer for saying, uh-uh! It is awful that these women act like children...not just any kids be the ones always in and out of juvie! They never try to hear Jennifer when she's talking...looks like they are listening pretty hard right now! Bravo Jennifer!

And my response to all of this is so what!?!! Why does VH1 even care if she wants to sue Nia for slapping her she has the legal right to do so. It is wrong to interfere with the legal process and the network should stop "bullying" Jen to drop the suit. Nia should not have even been on the show, that's mistake #1 and she was getting all wound up before even confronting Jen. So you're telling me that fighting, throwing bottles, verbal threats are supposed to be tolerated? That's how people really get hurt, like killed. I am losing respect for VH1 more and more each BBall wives episode, they should really stay out of it.

Ok, really??? Where do GROWN women act like this at? These women are adults, have money, most have children and they are ALWAYS fighting. So because Jennifer conducted herself in an adult fashion she's being punished? WHATEVER! Use your words ladies not your hands!

First off, look at how many times jen had allowed these bi%#hes to pu theyre hand on her. I mean ME. I would have WHOOPED EVELYNS ASS and NIA'S ASS TOO. But she can't fight she is not going to fight and that's what the hell Evelyn get and her SideKick. If she had of hit someone with them damn bottles she was throwing she would have a lawsuit and be in jail. So what's the difference. This is BULL!

Being an adult means solving your problems in a mature manner by talking out your problems, if the precaution of involving a medium (legal action) has to be considered then it has to be considered. Fact is she put her hands on somebody, she could have walked away and let it be but she had to let the situation escalade into something crazier

Okay, so Nia is hurt that Jennifer stoppee being her friend because of the drama that was between her and evelyn. I can see why Nia would be hurt.BUT (for all the people who want to talk about what a real friend is...) A REAL friend would have handled the situation (if she was really hurt)differently. I mean, I dont know about ou all, but you aint gone get anything out of me, RAISING your voice, BAD ATTITUDES,and did we all see the show, NIA said FIRST she should slap Jennifer. Jennifer said " I wish you would" I mean meaning " if you hit me there are going to be consequences" I mean Tammi just got done asking Jen about the contracts (how dumb could you be?) Oh and yeah, before Jen started talking bout NIA, Nia started with her first wanting to talk about all the men she supposedly had sex with. Do we remember ANY of that? Plus. The REASON/EXCUSE for Evelyn to be mad at Jennifer is So pittiful. I mean she's mad over a blog that wasnt even disrespectful. Her opinion or her editor's opinion was Just stated. Evelyn states her opinions all the time. About Jen and her husband and everybody else. Now Evelyns wants to be a Warrior for the Broke People. THis is some bull. REWIND THE SHOWS AND WE WILL SEE FAKE ALL THROUGH THIS. I am upset with Tammie because I liked her. BUT NOW I feel like she sucking Evelyns ass. I mean did she forget Evelyn was the mistress of her EX HUSBAND and she called her a NONFACTOR and threatened to SUE HER? yeah ENTERTAINMENT AT IT'S BEST.

Some of these comments are so immature the definition of assault "an intentional act by one person that creates an apprehension in another of an imminent harmful or offensive contact" it doesn't say it has to leave a mark or scar. In the real world people go to jail all day everyday for doing what Nia did to Jennifer. Adults should act like adults and not animals. Evelyn is ridiculous she was crying and so broken up because Jennifer said what she did to Nia. For the past few seasons she has did the same thing to Royce, and now Jennifer and Kenya. I'm done with the show it has taken a turn for the worse. Evelyn should go see a psychiatrist and try to figure out where she left her self esteem how do you tell your man it OK for him to go cheat, just tell you about it. That says a lot about your character, morals, and values. Also as girls Shaunie and Tammy should tell Evelyn when she's wrong, that's what REAL friends do.

First of all the Producers R idiots. Nina had no right to bring her behind on that show putting her hands on folks. When did it get to the point that you can't state ur opionion without getting attacked. Jennifer stated her opinion and Nina flew around the table and attacked her. What the producers should be mad at is inviting this nobody on the show to disrupt the relationship between the existing ladies. Right on Jennifer, and Jennifer was never down with the fighting and antics. That was EV!

Get them Jen. The stank azz producer (Shaunie) should be sued also and Ev. Jen is worth $25 million according to news reports. She does not need this show. This show is classless, starting with Tammie, Suzie and Ev. Suzie is of less value than Jen. Shaunie, your days are limited boo. As you sit on your perch looking like the cat who ate the canary you snake!

The reason these blogs will never have real credibility is because the writers cannot seem to keep their opinions out of their writing. Whack! She should file suit and win!
