Though last week’s season three premiere of ‘Basketball Wives’ scored record high ratings, at least one cast member is not very happy about the way she was portrayed.
Newbie cast mate Meeka Claxton, who is married to former NBA player Speedy Claxton and describes herself as self-made real estate mogul, blamed poor editing on the way she was portrayed during the show opener.
According to Meeka, a lot of scenes were cut and pasted together, especially those that dealt with fellow cast member Royce Reed.
“I mean, I watched it. And this is what I signed up for– but it’s not me, the way I was portrayed, but it was entertaining,” she said.
So had Meeka watched previous episodes of ‘Basketball Wives’ before she signed on? “I watched a few episodes before. But I was always in and out of New York and Atlanta, so I didn’t see every episode. I wouldn’t consider any of them friends. But I’m still getting to know them. It’s been such a short amount of time. And I didn’t go in there looking for friends. Its only been about two months, though.”
When asked how her husband felt about her appearing on the show, Meeka said he was very “supportive,” but added that if he was still playing in the NBA she probably would have passed on the opportunity.
