The reality star made her inclusion on season 8 official Thursday when she posted a promo for the latest round of episodes onto her Instagram page.
“Tune into @vh1 June 19th…” she captioned the clip. She nor her castmates are seen in the clip. However, they are each heard in a voiceover as a cover of Phil Collin’s “In the Air Tonight” plays.
“Some s— always hits the fan,” Evelyn Lozada is heard saying.
After viewing, several fans were disappointed in Williams going back to the show.
“You went back on this 🤦🏾♀️ too much drama.”
“Noooooo.. they did you so dirty last season! You’re better than this! Why go back?! I hate how they ganged up on you.”
One fan responded to the comment above, “I’m confused too I don’t understand why she would go back.”
“I thought you wouldn’t be coming back. I thought actually you said you were done!”
Others praised the move.
“I’m so happy you’re returning. You know I’m always Team Jennifer Williams 💕”
“Get your money mom lol 😍”
“Yesss I was hoping you was back.”
While Williams has made it clear she does not want to go back on the show, she also acknowledged contractual obligations may not leave her with much of a choice.
“I honestly would like to move forward in my life,” she said during a sit-down on “The Breakfast Club” in September 2018. “I still am under contract, so I don’t know what’s gonna happen. I do know that allegedly the production company got fired, so I don’t know what’s gonna [happen] with the show, but I just want to move forward.”
But while this serves as confirmation from Williams herself that she’ll be back, she’s made at least one indication that she’d be returning before.
In March, Williams had followers shook when she posted a photo on Instagram appearing to be filming a confessional scene.
“Solid gold, never gold plated… ⭐️,” she wrote in the caption.
Instantly, fans flooded her comments section with inquiries.
“Please tell me you are back on #basketballwives ❤️❤️😘😘 no matter how you look last season just go in on this season with a open heart and just hear everybody out.”
“Looks like a confessional set/look 👀”
“Is it true you’re going to return to BBW hun? @jenniferwilliams.”
