Royce Reed is doing well, since since saying deuces to VH1’s ‘Basketball Wives’. After four seasons, the 31-year old mommy, dancer and entrepreneur says she has no regrets leaving the show after a turbulent fourth season. In a recent interview with VH1, the former dancer gives an update on her boyfriend Dezmon Briscoe (who viewers met on the show), what her relationship is like these days with old and new cast members and why she felt like she was ‘selling her soul’.
On what she’s doing professionally these days?
Fantashique is definitely thriving. We have ninety five members in the Orlando branch, and we have six companies and four competition teams. We also just expanded to Atlanta and have plans to expand to five cities in five years. And we’re trying to pitch a show for Fantashique, too. Other than that, I’m still working on my second book, I know I keep putting it off and people keep asking me about it, but I have so much going on that I don’t have time to write, and I don’t want a ghostwriter. I pride myself on writing my own stuff, but it’s coming sooner or later.
On the latest in her romantic life:
Dezmon and I are good. We went through some bad times and for the past year it was very on and off, really it was a lot of off. I learned from doing this show that relationships last longer when no one knows your business. With that said Dezmon and I are on good terms.
On who she keeps in touch with from the show:
Kesha’s my girl, we still speak. And Tami 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. I’ve always cared about Tami, I’m not gonna badmouth her, I will voice my opinion though. Jen and I, every blue moon, we’ll text, same thing with Kenya. I talk to Meeka very rarely. 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.
