Aja Metoyer Shuts Down ‘Side Chick’ Claims
After already speaking to BOSSIP about her strained relationship with her sister Cristen, Aja Metoyer spoke candidly on common misconceptions.
The “Basketball Wives” star who told us that she has”nothing negative to say” about her O.G. cast mates like Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada, wants fans to learn that she’s far from the mother of a “break baby” or a “side chick.”
“My son’s not a break baby, I’m not a side chick or a homewrecker,” said Aja. “I would love for people to be able to relate to me as though I’m their sister or their friend. Life happens and sometimes you get dealt s****y cards and you just do the best you can do and make lemonade out of lemons.”
She also dispelled claims that she’s “bitter”…
“I’m actually extremely happy, I’m dating and I’m really into the person that I’m with right now. Life is great for me and all my kids.”
and added that people should stop wondering how she “got” with two prominent people; Damon Wayans Jr. and the “other person” who she respectfully declined to call by name.
“Everyone’s like ‘Oh God, how did you get Damon Wayans Jr. and this other person?’ But it’s like Damon Wayans Jr. and I, we’ve known each other since I was 12. There’s no getting. And the other person, I’ve known for 10 years plus. There was no ‘getting’ in that either, we’re from a whole huge group of friends. We’ve been friends for a very long time.
There’s no getting, there’s no ho, there’s no anything. It’s like you meet the boy next door and y’all have been neighbors for years. It seems messy but if you compare it to any other situation, it’s no beef. Everybody’s good. Everyone’s extremely happy.”
As for her and the “other person”, Aja says they have an “amazing” relationship for the sake of their son Xavier and declined to comment on her relationship with the person’s spouse.
“No comment, I have to leave that one,” said Aja.
No “bitter baby mama” over here!
What do YOU think about Aja shutting down that nasty nickname???

Aja who’s releasing an activewear line in the fall would also like fans to relate to her evolution and “give her a chance.”
“Seeing me evolve and being comfortable in the skin that I’m forced to be in, I think I could end up being really relatable because it’s like, who doesn’t know somebody like me?” said Aja.
“When everyone is like, ‘how did this girl…’—there is no ‘how did this girl.’ This girl is really your homegirl, your sister, your cousin or the lady that babysits your baby brother or your child. I’m the community babysitter. I think people trying to get to know me and give me a chance would be a great start.”
She also added that she doesn’t have a Twitter page and a social media letter that surfaced of her airing out one of her baby’s fathers is FAKE along with various pictures of her on the internet.
“I had nothing to do with that. That letter was NOT me,” said Aja. “I read that letter, I was reading that letter like ‘Oh my god!’ I was very surprised.”
An and as for folks who doubt that Aja gets recognized on the street, while she admits that it’s strange it does happen.
“I was asked on a VH1 interview if people do recognize me and I said, that they do. Then I got a whole bunch of comments like, ‘How?! You made that up, you’re lying.’ No, as weird as it is to you, it is to me. I think it’s extremely strange. When someone calls my name I don’t know if I should turn around or run.”
