It’s expected that someone might say a few things she doesn’t really mean after getting slapped in the face, and Jennifer Williams wants to clear up some comments she made after being struck on “Basketball Wives.”
“So of course after you completely disrespect me by putting your hands on me, my mouth is going to get reckless. I am not happy for the things I said to her but I was caught off guard and left in a vulnerable state,” Jennifer explained in her blog.
While being pulled apart by members of the show’s crew and honorary referee Tami Roman, Jennifer blurted out that she was not going to press charges against attacker Nia Crooks because Nia didn’t own much.
Nia and her boss, Jennifer’s former BFF Evelyn Lozada, took personal offense to Jennifer’s comments about the size of Nia’s residence, especially considering that Jennifer crashed there in that two-bedroom domicile during her divorce.
“The 2-bedroom apartment comment got taken way out of context. I live in a 2-bedroom apartment so why would I look down on her for that,” Jennifer wrote. “My point was don’t act like I lived with you when you live in a 2-bedroom apartment with a roommate. There would be no room for me and all my stuff that barely fits in my 2-bedroom apartment in NJ. The whole attack against me was pointless.”
All season her co-stars have asserted that Jennifer has changed and become brand new now that she’s single and is considered a celebrity by many, and she won’t deny that.
“For the record, I have changed. I am striving to be an independent woman and I am building a future for myself. I have zero time or tolerance for BS,” she said, adding that she’s not waiting around for a man to take care of her.
Since “Basketball Wives,” Jennifer has been seen at parties with other reality stars such as NeNe Leakes, Mashonda and Emily Bustamante. On a recent episode, she received an invitation to a private screening from Think Like a Man actor Terrence J. Despite all that, Jennifer said her celebrity friends aren’t the problem.
“Fame has never been a weakness of mine but by watching this show I can’t say the same for all the ladies. I just hope everyone can recognize what is really important in this life because Basketball Wives will not always be the HOT thing… Then what???”

Is it fair to hold someone responsible for what they say after being physically attacked? Do you think Jennifer really has a problem with those who don’t have as much money as she does? Leave your comments below.
