From one basketball wife to another: Jennifer Williams thinks Erin Barry is a traitor to the NBA Wives sisterhood!
The day she allegedly started carrying on a sext-message affair with Tony Parker, Erin Barry (whose husband Brent played with Tony) broke an “unspoken” NBA wives code to never cheat with another wife’s husband.
“When you hear that it’s another wife that is the cause of a divorce, it surprises me,” Jennifer Williams, wife of former NBA player Eric Williams who played on the San Antonio Spurs with Tony in 2006-2007, tells HollywoodLife.com. “I know that Eva and Erin, I don’t want to say [had] a close relationship, but Brent and Tony were on the team for a while together, so they were pretty friendly. So when you hear something like that, it’s definitely shocking!”
“[NBA Wives] stick together,” says Jennifer. co-star of VH1’s Basketball Wives. “It’s just something that’s not really spoken, but it’s understood that we have this sisterhood of women. When you’re on a team with these players and you become close with the wives, you can call them up for whatever. We’re all in the same situation, so everyone understands we have a common bond.”
“I was shocked to hear he was cheating with a teammate’s wife,” agrees Jennifer’s co-star Suzie Ketcham, who was married to now-retired NBA center Michael Olowokandi.”Definitely don’t lose yourself [to one of these guys].”
“We all understand what it’s like to be with these guys and it’s definitely not easy,” says Jennifer. “[But] we have this sisterhood of women and you would think that someone who understands your position that you’re in, wouldn’t go and do that to your husband.”
