Meeka Claxton recently wrote a blog post about her experience on that show everyone loves to hate, “Basketball Wives.” Her anger was directed at the show, her co-workers and fans, along with Wendy Williams. She expressed frustration that the show promotes violence, and also said that neither Wendy Williams nor Sherri Shepherd were interested in helping her get an anti-bullying message out to the public.
“That’s what I was looking for, their support as far as these talk-show hosts,” she told Sister 2 Sister. “It kind of bothered me that now they were taking a stand.”
Meeka said that Wendy didn’t say a word, until Meeka posted her blog entry. But Wendy wasn’t nice. She said that she didn’t understand why Meeka even signed up for the show, given that she is the only “Basketball Wife” who has actually married a basketball player.
“My jaw dropped,” Meeka said, after seeing Wendy’s reaction“I had reached out to Wendy because I felt that we were parallel. She would feel that this violence is making us look bad and things of that nature. So, the comments that ‘no one cares about you’ and ‘you’re a non-factor,’ honestly, that’s f*cked up,” Meeka said.
