Basketball Wives Is Not Reality, Singer Tamia Speaks

Television show Basketball Wives is great reality television, but not reality reality. Recently singer Tamia spoke about the reality of being married to a basketball player.

Have you ever watched Basketball Wives and became amazed at the lives these women live? They have great friends, travel frequently, and make money without having actual jobs. Yes, they talk about their business plans on the show, but the plans are quickly forgotten when the cameras stop rolling.

 Have you wondered how they managed to snag successful men in the first place? Let's face it. It's hard out here for a pretty and intelligent woman.

Have you ever wondered if all basketball wives are doomed for divorce? As of season four all of the women, except Jennifer are divorced. They only reason Jennifer is still married is became her estranged husband Eric Williams is avoiding signing the papers.

Well recently singer Tamia decided to let the world know that the show Basketball Wives is not real. Check out her comments below.

“I think the perception is definitely not a reality. I think, to be fair, a lot of those women [on the show] aren’t wives. And I’m good friends with Shaunie. And as far as business is concerned, I applaud her, but I think that it’s definitely very misleading in terms of what our lives are about.
“I do have a lot of friends who are married to athletes, and a lot of these women are involved in charities, doing all kinds of things behind the scenes and are supportive wives, and — believe it or not — have supportive husbands who are really great guys. I think not only for the women, but I think it just paints a really bad picture about the men as well. I think for athletes in general, people are like, ‘Why would you want to marry an athlete?’ And that goes back to what I was saying to you: what works in one person’s marriage, may not work in the next. So keep your eyes focused on yours! I guess it’s interesting TV, but it’s definitely not reality.”
“I always say, “What works in one marriage may not work in the next. So definitely keep your eyes focused on your own relationship,” she said. “I think it’s important to understand that you guys are going to grow. Obviously, I’m not the same person that I was at 24, and he’s not the same person that he was. But we also together allowed each other to grow as well and stay connected at the same time. And I think that’s important. And obviously, communication is super important. And at the end of the day we just love being with each other and being really good friends” 

Tami has been married to basketball player Grant Hill since 1999 and they have two children together.
