Basketball Wives star, Kenya Bell, says its “up in the air” whether she will return to the popular show during an interview with Crunk + Disorderly. She also talked openly about the girls being mean, her music and the negative image the show portrays.
On whether or not starring on the show was worth it
I must admit that the first season was very difficult. The girls were very hard on me and my music. But at the end of the day people know that I have talent now and the show has opened doors for me. Believe it or not, I’ve also made some great friends on the show.
On how the success of the show has assisted her career
As I was contemplating whether or not to do the show someone told me that some television is better than no television. It was great advice. Reality TV is what’s hot now and it’s exciting to have been a part of this new era of television. Whether I do it again next year is up in the air.
On if the show portrays African American women negatively
I definitely restrained myself because I didn’t want to add to the negative stigma that had irritated so many people about the show. In Tahiti, all that went out of the window….it was going to be on & poppin’!
Do you think Kenya should return to the show and if not, who would be your recommended replacement? Post your thoughts!
