Default Basketball Wives = very intelligent television

Some real highbrow stuff.

The episode where all they did was yell "oh NO she DIDN'T!" about 2 million times was especially thought-provoking.

I can't take more than 2 minutes of that garbage. The whole concept is essentially misogynistic. I don't understand what that show does except portray women as catty, gossiping, gold diggers who try to latch on to an athlete and are offended at the smallest thing and ready to get "ghetto" at a moment's notice.

A bunch of gold-diggers sitting in big houses and spending their husband's money while the nanny watches the kids. Do people really watch this crap?

Show us what the athletes do when they're on the road. Now that would make for compelling tv.

I'd rather come to insidehoops to get exclusive on camera interviews with the NBA's biggest stars

I've seen some of it...it is the lowest form of TV, right there with Jersey Shore

it makes the Kardashians and Hilton shows look like fckin brain surgery




really does a huge disservice to black women in general too

So basically it's accurate.

I've seen bits of the show every season that it's existed.

So, this topic is old news. Didn't just discover it now or something.

But, everyone knows it's bad TV, yet years later, it's still on, and still popular

this show is proof that the general american population is beyond stupid.

seriously, ghetto bitches screaming at each other and the other reason they are on tv is because someone else worked their ass off..

a special city in jersey is probably the target demographic for this show.
