Basketball Wives Royce Reed Files Motion Against Custody Judge Citing Bias

Post By RelatedRelated Post

 

Ok, ok, Royce Reed isn’t exactly a basketball wife but who’s keep tracking of that kind of thing anymore? Apparently, a Florida judge, who the Basketball Wives star has accused of impropriety in presiding over her custody battle with the father of her child Dwight Howard.

Reed claims that Judge Tim Shea has a particular problem with women who have children out of wedlock with NBA players and has filed a motion to have him removed from the case.

Dwight Howard, who plays for the Orlando Magic, claims that Reed has not been living up to her end of their visitation agreement, and began proceedings last month to challenge her primary custody status. Reed claims that the judge said that he would grant Howard custody before any evidence had even been presented, but delayed his ruling.

In response, Reed filed a motion asking that Judge Shea be removed, citing his bias against single mothers and his close political ties with Howard’s lawyer. She also believes that Dwight Howard’s local celebrity is preventing her from receiving a fair trail in Orlando, stating in the motion “I am afraid if Judge Shea continues to preside over this case, I will lose custody of my son.”

Howard has been open about his distaste for his son’s exposure to the reality television life and has brought Reed to court in the past for violating their agreement to never show pictures or video of the child to the public – this is why Basketball Wives viewers have never seen or heard about either Dwight Howard or his child.

But in spite of her past shady behavior, could this judge really have a ‘baby mama bias’?

  1. She needs to get off of the show and do her acting dancing career.
    The show is definitely not helping her with other outside business.
    The Basketball wives is such a disgrace to the image of black women as they relate to one another. Royce is no where near the worst on the show! Evelyn and Tami are disgraceful, ignorant, violent and ghetto! They make me sick. And to think they are mothers of daughters! Now I see why they all are estranged from their basketball men! What man wants women whom curse like sailors on leave and whom are constantly fighting! Its embarrassing!

  2. Agreed with above, leave the show if you clearly see that it is affecting your parenting!

  3. All those females on Basketball wives are a disgrace to black women, all they do is drink, curse, gossip and fight. They allow the white establishment to make them act like trashy black women for ratings and money. Basketball players ought to take deep offense at the portrayal.

  4. They are pitiful. Tammy and Evelyn are sick bullies, take them to the”hood” they wouldn’t last five minutes. I am sick of the fighting and cussing. They make “black women” look bad all over the world. Please public all black women who are blessed with finance do not act like that. I am not watching it anymore. Your children which are girls see them display “hatred”. I’m finished !

  5. Wow, you all expressed how many of us Black women feel. I too am disgusted at how the so-called basketball wives conduct themselves in the media, and gave up watching them. Angry, bitter, mean, disgraceful, class-less, ungrateful, gutter (they are beyond ghetto), and ignorant are just a few words to describe the women on that TV show. And that includes Shaunie O’Neal the creator. She ought to be ashamed at how she allows the entire globe to think that all Black women and athletes wives act like this. It just plays right into the stereotypical beliefs of bigots and other sick minds that use the content of these shows to continually bash us, marginalize us, and keep us out jobs and other opportunities/situations that these wifeys don’t have to deal with or worry about. You want to keep it real? Then please stop entertaining simple-minded people by portraying idiocy on TV. Royce, you might want to look into another income stream. You are better than this. There are some things that money can’t buy and dignity is one of them.

  6. Yeah I agree! They should be called, “The Bad Girls of Basketball Wives Club”!! These women act like they don’t know where they came from! Yes, you can tell they came from the hood, but why should they act like they from the hood! Too grown to be acting like they do! Me and my girls don’t act like that and we from the hood! Disgusting!

  7. I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth. My old neighborhood could be designated as the ghetto. Growing up in a bad situation doesn’t instill this type of behavior. Not everyone from these neighborhoods behave like this. This is just a product of our society buying into the myth of what it is to be black. It is unfortunate that black women from these areas do fight a lot, but that is because of the groups who have the thought that they are entitled to things without having to pay for them. If I didn’t learn how to fight, I would have lost clothing and jewelry every day at school. People would cut you for your clothes if you didn’t fight. Sometimes we literally fought for our lives. I never understood that behavior and I don’t understand why these women behave they way they do. I can only chalk it up to self hatred, stupidity and immaturity. I am an adult now and don’t live there anymore, and I haven’t brought that lifestyle with me and they don’t have to either.

  8. This is what I’m talking about, the world looks at this show and feels that ALL black females act this way. It is truly embarrassing to us ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I dont watch it at all. When will we as a culture learn, that no matter how the “white” or other races act, we will always be looked upon as the worst. We are being told daily that, thats why our men are going to the “other” side for their mates because we dont know how to act civilized. This isnt true of ALL of us, so dont get it twisted!! But I hate this show and hope they take it off the air completely!!!!

  9. @ ALL, i agree with ALL of you 100%. shaunie thinks she is the better than any of them because she got the BIGGEST settlement from Shaq but she is down in the gutter with the rest of them. they are all TRASHY women, and tami and evelyn really think they can say/ kick anybody ass whenever they want to. BULLIES both of them, yeah take’em back to the hood and they will be KISSING ASSES just to get away out. i hate the show because it has nothing positive to offer ANYBODY. shaunie came up with basketball LA and i couldn’t believe how it started off the bat, fighting and acting just plain STUPID. jackie christy is a sorry excuse of the so called FIRST LADY of the basketball world. that woman has doug pimped out to the point that he can’t see what he keeps on remarrying, year after year. i don’t get it but i hope enough people stop watching both those shows and they ALL go back to DODGE CITY a.k.a. GET THE HELL OFF T.V.

  10. As a black women and the mothers of three daughters, they are indeed a mess. The are the epitomy of cash, grass or ass! REAL women have jobs and kids to tend to without the help of nannies and rediculous child support orders. Hell most of us have to fight to get money to help with the kids after a divorce. We find a way to make despite of hardship. Evenlyn needs to take her old, high paid prostituing ass back to the project she was yanked from! Susie, needs to just her big ass repeating mouth! We would have kicked her high yellow ass way before now in the SWATs! Tammie is a crazy drunk that I wouldn’t take to a dog fight! She slpped the right ones….she would get a good ole country ass whooping in SWAT! Shaunie, you do nothing but keep the mess going so you can draw royalties…you might be the only one of those females who isn’t dumber than a box of hair weave! Meeka, if you are smart, you’d stay the hell away from those fools!

  11. MY DAUGHTER AND GRANDDAUGHTER ARE BASKETBALL WIVES FANATICS. I WATCHED IT A FEW TIMES WITH MY DAUGHTER, AND ALL THESE WOMEN DO IS FIGHT, DRINK, CUSS AND TALK ABOUT ONE ANOTHER. ACTUALLY, I DON’T THINK ANY OF THEM WERE MARRIED TO A BASKETBALL PLAY BUT SHAUNNIE. I HOPE EVELYN GET DUMPED AT THE ALTER. THAT MAN WOULD BE A FOOL TO MARRY HER. AND THEY ALL THINK THEY ARE BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE THAT COME ON THE SHOW.
    MY OPINION (WHICH I KNOW THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT) IS THEY NEED TO GET RID OF BOTH SHOWS, DUMP THE WOMEN ON THE SHOW IN THE TRASH CAN WITH THE REST OF THE RATS.

  12. You can certainly see your enthusiasm in the paintings you write. The arena hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. All the time go after your heart.
