Kesha Nichols was first introduced to in last season’s “Basketball Wives,” and it wasn’t exactly a walk in the park for the rookie wife. For most of the season, she was the target of many conflicts. So will she be returning next season? According to reports, we might not be seeing her. In a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister, Kesha said she feels the show portrayed her in a negative light and made women, especially black women, look bad. She also hadn’t realized she was being bullied in Tahiti until she saw the actual episode. Now Kesha feels she is a spokesperson for those who have been in the same position.
As for whether or not she will return next season, Kesha said:
“I had a conversation with Royce about doing another season if the show comes back, and I don’t know why I would. I’m never going to film with Kenya again, I’m never going to film with Tami again, so what purpose would I serve? I’m not about this life, so why would they want me to come back? And Royce was like, you have so many fans and people who look up to you, if you don’t come back it might look like you’re running. No, it looks like I’m removing myself from a negative situation. That’s all you can do when you’re being bullied by someone. Remove yourself from the situation. Because, clearly, not saying anything doesn’t work. This has definitely been a learning experience for me and I’m not going to let it break my spirit. I can make something positive out of anything, but it’s definitely been very hard.”
What do you guys think about Kesha’s claim as a spokesperson against bullying? Do you think she will return now that Shaunie O’Neal has promised to make the show less violent? Share your thoughts!
