Jennifer Williams suing over ‘BBW’ slap

    Jennifer Williams might not have responded too quickly when slapped by an acquaintance while taping “Basketball Wives,” but that doesn’t mean she’s not taking action. She’s suing.

    “I’m definitely in the process of filing charges, so I can’t really talk too much about it, but I’m lawyered up,” said Jennifer who was struck on the cheek by the woman. Although the episode in which the altercation took place hasn’t aired yet, the scene was featured in the preview reel for season 4.

    “I felt like I was in a zoo,” said Jennifer who was also attacked by former BFF Evelyn Lozada at the same event. It’s not clear whether the woman, only identified thus far as Nia, was striking out because of Jennifer’s beef with Evelyn or whether she had her own issues with Jennifer.

    Either way, Jennifer said Nia received the attention she was looking for.

    “She was looking for her 15 minutes of fame, and she got it,” Jennifer told the DJs at New Yorks’ Power 105.1.

    Despite the fact that several physical altercations have taken place on “BBW” since its premiere season, Jennifer said that she didn’t believe Nia would follow through on her threat to slap her because they were all at a horse event in a presidential suite and there were security guards around.

    Apparently, Jennifer forgot for a quick second that fights happen anywhere on reality television. However, she disagrees with getting physical with anyone. “It’s crazy that all these fights are happening on TV; I just think it sends the wrong message to the youth,” she said admitting that being hit on TV was humiliating.

    Jennifer has been able to stay away from physical fights in past seasons, but she joked that she might need to prepare herself by joining a fight club, but then she admitted that’s just not her style.

    “I didn’t take karate lessons. I didn’t have to fight my way through school. I’m not a fighter,” she said. “I’m not going to hit you physically. I’m going to hit you with a lawsuit. I’m not tolerating abuse whether it’s from a man or a woman. You can’t put your hands on people and there be no repercussions.”

    Jennifer also talks about the season newcomers, the altercation at Shaunie O’Neal’s birthday party and whether she thinks Evelyn is a bully. Watch.
