'Basketball Wives' Royce Reed: 'I was selling my soul' on the show

"[Being on the show], I felt like I was being a hypocrite, because I'm on a show where there's like, constant fighting, and yet I'm sitting here trying to voice something different [to the girls]," says Reed. "As much as I enjoyed the checks, it wasn't worth contradicting myself and doing something I didn't really believe in. I felt kinda like I was selling my soul. I was totally fine with the way I went out last season, you saw me doing my career, you saw me being me."

Reed also says she's mended some fences that were broken during her time on the show.

"Tami [Roman] and I are good again now, I reached out to her, obviously, after her mom passed, and I sent some stuff for the service. We kinda talked and I think she realizes where I was coming from, and I think she realizes I was being a true friend to her," says Reed.

"Gloria and I don't have any beef. She actually reached out to me to get Evelyn's contact information after Evelyn went through all her stuff, and I mean, Evelyn obviously is not my favorite person in the world. Neither is Shaunie. Outside of that, I'm just doing me."

Reed is also expanding her dance company from Orlando to Atlanta and pitching a reality show about the company, so perhaps be on the look out for that in the future.
