During a recent interview with a radio show in Richmond, VA. BBW star Royce Reed speaks out about how she felt about the show backlash, where she stands with the cast and where she’s at in her relationship with Dezmon Briscoe (Let’s just say they are still together, YUP). More details below………..
Royce called TT Torez to have a one on one “Girl Talk” on iPower 92.1 where she talked about all the drama on the show, and spill the beans on loving Dezmon, fighting with Shaunie and Evelyn and the “BBW” backlash. Check out the highlights:
On why Shaunie refuses to film with her:
Royce says she has no idea what Shaunie is upset with her about. She reached out to Shaunie but never received a response. Royce then went on to say Shaunie had issues with her doing interviews but Royce says she’s only defending herself.
On her relationship with Jennifer Williams:
She says she and Jen are cool. They both apologized to each other and are moving forward.
On celebrities saying “Basketball Wives” promotes bullying:
Royce said at one time she quit the show because she felt it was going the wrong route. She said she fought to have producers show another side of her and that’s why we get to see other aspects of her verses just seeing her fuss and fight with her castmates. She added that the show was like a mirror for her and helped her to change her life for the positive.
On Tami’s actions on the past two episodes:
Royce said she sees where a lot of people are coming from when it comes to her attitude. Royce explained why she never took sides and said what Tami DID and how she reacted was wrong. She said there’s another side of Tami that’s loving and funny.
On her having to be in a relationship and her relationship with her dad:
First Royce breaks down her previous relationships on the show. She then talks about her relationship with her father explaining how it’s hard for her to talk to her dad because of the way he speaks to her. She credits the show for opening up a line of communication between her father and herself and they are now at peace.
On her relationship status with Tampa Bay baller Dezmon Briscoe:
“Him texting her was wrong, but Dezmon has NEVER cheated on me and that the whole situation was extremely messy. I won’t be leaving him, because the world is telling her to do so.”
