Kesha Nichols, the new Basketball Wives co-star who became the poster child for bullying after Tami Roman verbally ripped her to shreds in the show’s Tahiti episode, claims that she might not be returning, reports Sister2Sister Magazine.

 “Honestly, this whole season I’ve been waiting and hoping that something positive would come, and I don’t think they’ve really shown anything positive about me, about black women, about women in general. And I honestly didn’t realize that I was being bullied when I was in Tahiti, I knew that Tami was being mean to me and that nobody was sticking up for me, but when I watched the episode, that’s when I realized I was being bullied, and I’ve been lucky, never in my life have I experienced that, so maybe the reason why I was on the show was to see what it was like to be bullied and be a spokesperson for people that are being bullied.”

Even though fellow outcast Royce Reed has given her several reasons why she should stay, Kesha says that she thinks the most responsible move she can make for young girls is to leave the toxic BBW environment:

“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.”

I find it interesting that Kesha is positioning herself as the spokesperson for bullying. She definitely fits the criteria, but she was not so fearful of Tami when she was talking about her to any and everyone who listen. This was not season 1 of this trainwreck, it was season 5. Surely, there is no way that she believed she was signing on for anything positive. She signed on for a paycheck like everyone else.

If being an ambassador for bullying is her “new thing,” then congratulations to her. I just can’t help but feel that if Tami had not gone all Cleo from “Set it Off’ on her, she’d still be right there in the Viper’s Den, gossiping and backstabbing like the rest of them.

    I don’t blame her. I wouldn’t stay around with that bunch. She acted more like the adult on that show for this season anyway. I wouldn’t spend one more minute with that bunch of bullies. I mean you can’t even voice your opinion without Suzie running back and telling every thing that ‘s said by anyone on that show. The other lady from last year left and I applauded her. I remember the woman from BBW L.A. left right after that first fight on the balcony and she never came back. She was so right. I don’t know why any reputable business would even allow this bunch into their establishment……unless they are being paid big money. I certainly wouldn’t want to be any place that they frequent. I do plan to see if they are going to change their immature behavior because they have just overdone it with the violence. So if she decides it’s best for her to leave, I can certainly understand her reasoning. You’re in trouble with Tami and Evelyn if you stay and are their friends or not their friends. They are just from a different lifestyle, it seems.
