“Basketball Wives” star Kenya Bell has released a new song, “Hate Me,” which seems to directed at her reality show cast mates. Produced by Jazze Pha, the song is about the “silly h–s” trying to stop Kenya. With digs like, ““Them bitches hate me / they make me famous tho,” it seems that the newcomer is singing about her detractors like Tami Roman and Kesha Nichols.
The song is from Bell’s forthcoming album. According to a press release, “Although the “Basketball Wives” Season 4 Reunion Show airs tonight on VH1, Kenya Bell is focusing less on the drama associated with her reality show and the chaos surrounding her impending divorce, by soaring in the studio”
Last week, Kenya and friend Jennifer Williams famously left the island, leaving just Shaunie O’Neal, Suzie Ketcham, Evelyn Lozada and Tami at the finale table. The fate of Jennifer, Kenya, Royce and Kesha remains to be seen as does the overall direction of the franchise. Shaunie closes the season by consulting with her pastor on whether she should remain with the show she made popular or, because of its decline into train wreck status, leave it for her own sanity.
Kenya’s song and all of the drama will undoubtedly be addressed on tonight’s “Basketball Wives” reunion at 8pm ET on VH1.
