Grant Hill and Tamia

Basketball Wife in “real life” Tamia shares her thoughts on the VH1 reality series….

Via HuffPo Black Voices:

Since you’re married to an athlete, what are your thoughts on the perception of the “Basketball Wives” franchise?

Well, I think the perception is definitely not a reality. I think, to be fair, a lot of those women [on the show] aren’t wives. And I’m good friends with Shaunie. And as far as business is concerned, I applaud her, but I think that it’s definitely very misleading in terms of what our lives are about. I do have a lot of friends who are married to athletes, and a lot of these women are involved in charities, doing all kinds of things behind the scenes and are supportive wives, and — believe it or not — have supportive husbands who are really great guys.

I think not only for the women, but I think it just paints a really bad picture about the men as well. I think for athletes in general, people are like, “Why would you want to marry an athlete?” And that goes back to what I was saying to you: what works in one person’s marriage, may not work in the next. So keep your eyes focused on yours! I guess it’s interesting TV, but it’s definitely not reality.

Well put, Tamia. Grant Hill should be proud to have you as his wife.
