'Basketball Wives' Producers

Plotting Legal Action

Against Jennifer Williams

EXCLUSIVE

0429_jennifer_williams_getty"Basketball Wives" producers are taking their feud with cast member Jennifer Williams to the next level ... the show's big-wigs are currently in talks to file a lawsuit against  the "BB Wife" for publicly trashing the show.

If you recall ... producers of VH1's hit series were PISSED after Williams filed a lawsuit against fellow cast member Nia Crooks after she slapped Williams in the face while taping an episode.

Now sources tell TMZ  -- producers are ready to take their own legal action after Williams went on a media rampage and blasted "BB Wives" alleging the show portrays African-American women negatively.

According to our sources, producers feel Williams' show-bashing is in violation of her contract -- which forbids cast members from doing any media appearances or press without approval, or speaking negatively about the show. We're told they feel she is "ruining the brand" they worked so hard to build.
 
Let the mudslinging begin.

It isn't hard to believe that VH1 is taking retaliatory actions against Jenifer for standing up for herself. I guess the women on Shaunie O'neal show should just take a beating and keep on taping.

This is so stupid, now all of a sudden she thinks the show portrays women in a bad light? Well Jen you have been doing it for years and laughing about it, did you have a revelation all of a sudden?

This strongarming, posturing, bullying, intimidating, abusing others...is just nasty. It says VOLUMES about these women and their lack of moral fiber and character. No dignity, no poise, no class.

Abusive women behaving badly on TV then they cry victim when called out or held accountable.

There are consequences to your choices, to your actions, to your reactions, to your behavior.

Some of them have teenagers yet act like this then when they are faced with consequences to their behavior, they squirm and cry victim and refuse to own their own bad choices.

Grow up.

ummm Shaunie and your cronies - you are taking things too far. Public sentiment is not on your side - but go ahead and sue. Jen's lipglosses will sell more, while your 'wives' show gets cancelled and then Tami and Evelyn will be at yor door everyday, looking for handouts. Shame on you for trying to bully Jen. Jen - I hope you have learnt something. Evelyn made you leave Eric, all the while he was telling you to be careful. Now his words have come true. You need to be careful. You ARE who you handg out with.

Every individual is responsible for themselves.
Check yourselves because each of you is seriously wrecking yourself.

At YOUR own doing, at YOUR own choice.

You choose the behavior, expect consequences.

You abuse someone, assault them, hit them, then expect the legal ramifications to your behavior that you chose. You choose a knee jerk reaction, you choose impulse toxic behavior, you choose to cause harm, then expect the end result to not be positive in your favor.

Did their parents not teach these grown women anything? They act so immature.

ALL OF THE WIVES SHOWS PORTRAY ALL WOMEN REGARDLESS OF RACE IN A NEGATIVE WAY!!! When the alcohol starts flowing the women that don't want to be involved should exit the building.

i don't understand the comment that the producers/show are portraying the black women negatively. it seems to me that it is their(womens) actions that represent black women negatively. violence, loud ranting, vile language, and slutily dressed gold diggers.

Wow. What a world we live in. She's trashing their "brand" by standing up for herself against physical violence and refusing to fight on national television like common trash. Maybe they should reconsider their brand...
