Evelyn Lozada’s longtime assistant and friend Nia Crooks is in no way apologetic for smacking Jennifer Williams on season four of Basketball Wives. The incident which took place at a racetrack in Florida resulted in a lawsuit and charges all filed by Jennifer. Yet despite having a chance to see herself on TV and having a change of heart for her behavior Nia blames it on how she was raised or even better, Jennifer asked for it
“Yeah, they don’t know me and I get that, I’m part of this story, but I’m just a person that walked in a room and sat down and said something to a person and got up and smacked her. So it looks like I’m bullying someone who welcomed the smack. She said “I wish you would.” She cut the conversation off because she doesn’t want anyone to know who she really is. She’s a total different person outside of this. Being a celebrity is not for everyone, some people’s heads get inflated, some don’t. And if you have new people around you in your life, and it’s not the people you’ve been around forever, that says a lot about a person. I just wish my reaction wouldn’t have been that. I can’t take that back now, but that’s the way I was raised, that’s how I grew up, that’s a normal reaction of mine.”
Right. Much like the Basketball Wives cast including Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada who saw their checks threatened by their behavior, Nia will be singing a different tune when she stands in front of a judge in Broward County on June 28th facing up to one year in jail.
Meanwhile Jennifer is back to business as usual enjoying dinner with celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch – see image below – and tweeting the behind the scenes video her latest Lucid Cosmetics commercial.
