Baller Alert x Anderson Cooper Show Official Recap

By now many of you have seen the  Anderson  episode that featured Baller Alert and some real life Baller Wives & Ex-wives. The show was titled Extreme Groupies vs Basketball Wives and allowed the Baller Wives to approach the "Groupies" that are "targeting their men". Many had an opinion before even watching the show. Those people are idiots. For those who didn't get to catch it, or those who DID get to watch and would like to discuss it further, here's the  Baller Alert x Anderson Cooper  re-cap blog. We're going to talk about what made the show, what was cut out and who's "right".


The show starts off with the "Baller Wives" and the "Groupies". I put them in quotation marks because it's up to you how you describe each. If I had my way I would name it "Women Who Date Ballers" and the "Women Who Married Ballers". Women who have the ring and women who want the ring. The only difference between the two sides of the couch are nuptials. Don't be fooled. 


The show started off pretty tense from the beginning. The wives (Rosa Blasi, Tia Robbins, Joumana Kidd) blamed the groupies (Michelle, Erika, Robin) for breaking up homes. Rosa Blasi, an actress who in her book has admitted to spreading it wide for ballers herself, made it appear that being a groupie was disgusting. She tells the girls that if they're looking for true love, you won't find it in a Baller. Funny, coming from a woman who moved to Los Angeles to chase athletes, dated ballers of every sport and ended up marrying one. Should've took her own advice, no?  Tia Robbins on the other hand believes you can find true love. See, she's married to a Baller now. During the show taping I didn't have enough fingers to count how many times Tia said her Baller has never and WILL NEVER cheat on her because they are soooooo happy. Anderson's producers cut that out. Maybe it was for the best because I was over it the first 30 times she said it. 


In this clip Rosa Blasi talks about how her NFL husband cheated on her the night of their wedding with her friend. A little background to this story, this is her friend that introduced her to the hockey player Rosa dated at one point. Both of them were "groupies" and Rosa just ended up getting the ring first. 


Erika, Michelle & Robin talk about how they meet Ballers.


And then somewhere the show turned into women dating MARRIED athletes...



Now, keep in mind, the premise of the show, the way it was pitched to us, had absolutely nothing to do with "married" ballers. Here's the thing. Nowhere on THIS site do we promote or encourage infidelity. I don't remember writing a single blog that urged women to go after all Ballers. As a matter of fact, not all Ballers are even married! Some of these Baller Wives were so caught up in their  FAIL of a relationship that they forgot that their are many young and single Ballers who are looking for someone just as young and available. For all of the Ballers who are married and step out on their wives, worry about what he's telling her, not what she (the groupie) is telling him. 



Can I take a break away from all that to discuss Tia Robbins? Miss Church Lady Thou Art Loosed with the Stayflow wig. She claims that her man is happy at home and that he has done a great job resisting temptation. Keep in mind she is the same woman who started a couples retreat called "Off Limits" that's basically designed to show you scalawags that her man is indeed, off limits. She also had a million and one things to say, lashing out at every woman on the panel who didn't have a wedding band. The woman was clearly bitter and it got me to thinking. If all things were good at home, why would you be so angry? Joumana wasn't angry. Even Rosa wasn't that bad. The divorced chicks were chilling, the happily married new mommy was bitter, why? I'll tell you why, that man is cheating on her and either she suspects it or she just found out. Tough.


But back to the recap.

Boss and I hit the stage. Anderson asks us a few questions about the site. Boss tells us when the site was started, why it started and I talk about the infamous Super Bowl blog that started all of this. What you didn't get to see on the show was Boss talking about all of the great things Baller Alert is about. We're not just Groupie Tales and Stalker Tips. Well, we were never "Stalker Tips" but I digress... We also post great things like Stock Tips, Articles On Healthy Living and Relationship Advice. Boss makes it a point to even tell Tia Robbins that we featured her "Off Limits" event. Of course Tia and her misplaced anger feel that although we're using the blog as a means to make money, we're breaking up homes. Oh....

And there you have it: If your man is cheating on you, it's not the groupie that is ruining the relationship. It's not the blog that is ruining the relationship. You can't even blame it on the rain, Miss Tia. It's your man. Check your man and maybe even check yourself! Your anger is focused on the wrong people and while you're focusing on us, your man is bumping and grinding the next thing walking. Direct your attention to your boo. I'm sure I said a lot more but it was cut and I can't remember.



Evelyn and Suzie joined the show. A lot of their part was cut out as well. Suzie talks about how she was laid up with her last boo for 10 years. Evelyn talks about how she met Chad on Twitter and how  as long as you don't come for hers, she won't come for you. Evelyn even talks about how she visits Baller Alert and doesn't have a problem with the site at all. Of course that was left on the cutting room floor. Go figure.


Evelyn talks to Anderson about her book Inner Circle


I personally feel the show caught the gist of it and that those who had a problem were the ones who didn't watch it or just didn't understand. Women wanting to date men that can provide for them is nothing new. I said this on the show as well. Wanting a man that can take care of you has been instilled in our minds since the dawn of time. We don't just talk about athletes, we talk about all successful men and our site isn't and we don't set people up. We give women tools to learn how to fix themselves so that they can attract Ballers. Not just athletes, but men who live the Baller lifestyle. We don't stalk Ballers because we tell you where and how to find them. We guide women in the right direction. I think that some people got the idea that this was a site set up to stalk athletes and learn how to take their money. This isn't a Groupie Guide to snagging a Baller either, although the success rate is pretty high :)

HJaving sat in the audience for the taping I was disappointed as to what I know was left on the cutting room floor. You gave great examples of what Boss said that was left out. In addition they left out a lot of what Michelle and Robin said. That Tia was a mess she was so defensive from the gate even after the point was made that nobody was interested in married men. I really wish that I was sitting in the section that would allowed me to speak....this site has so much to offer. Rosa Blasi was cool but I find her to be a bit of a hypocrite. They need to have you guys back to give the real deal on what BA is all about!


Comment by Mello826BA aka BAGroupie on April 23, 2012 at 4:27pm

When I first started working with BA, everyone had their preconceived notion of what the site was about. Of course, like many of these unhappily married "baller wives" many thought the site was directed towards women who were in search of solely landing & f****** a baller.  Boss, didn't create this to be a platform for such.  Like most women, the issue shouldn't be with the "groupie", check your man 1st & foremost.


Most of these women live in denial, they know what they're signing up for when they get married to these men.  The money & the lifestyle brings them some type of comfort I guess to mask what's really going on in their relationship, especially Tia Robbins. 


It was a great show nonetheless, great publicity. Eleven, you held your own with those misery loves company ass women. I'm proud of BA & its accomplishments.

@Spice I was sitting front row. If you notice he only roams the audience in the elevated areas. I wanted to raise my h and and ask Ms. Bad Wig a question about marriage and trust and wanted to call the women out about what I believe to be their denial of knowledge about the cheating ways of athletes.

This is good for your site, been a lurker and semi poster for a long time 

Comment by marissa taylor on April 23, 2012 at 4:44pm

I really like how baller alert defended themselves .... with the statement of  women destroying marriages .... That's a 100% correct .. women that look for athletes don't reuin marriages ... There husbands do . There was no better way to answer that ... I am proud :)

she has a baller husband and cant get a better wig???? sheesh!

Comment by Miss Good on April 23, 2012 at 5:17pm
*sigh* you know these b****** kill me. First of, this woman who thinks she is invincible to being cheated on..get a life. If there are women who date regular men and get cheated on, then why would you think your man with plenty of opportunity wont cheat on you? Just because you have a ring does not mean you can point your nose down to women trying to be in your position. Those are the same women he's hitting up when he leaves home. As far as the dating married men, I have seen maybe a handful of posts on here aabt women dating married men. But the majority of the women on here, from what I can see will NOT date a married man. Some women will and those women lack a relationship with God, I believe. I personally would not touch a married man so I dont see why they kept making it seem like women chase married men. And eleven8 made a great point that if the man is cheating it is HIS fault! He has vows to commit to, not the other woman. Theyre trying to make the website seem like it is an open guide ant eerything "baller" but its not. I myself like to date athletes, its not even abt the money, that helps, but that is not what I seek. As stated on this site many times, who wants someone thats broke? But I digreaa. I came on the site and in the beginning there were more posts specifically regarding athletes/ballers but as the posts got more to current date, there was much more context. Literally advice about everyday issues. I mean, I learned everything from how to better manage MY OWN money to life lessons to how to give great head! I mean there is so much more that what theyre trying to expose the wensite as. The word baller to taken too far out of context. Every user, subscriber, lurker of this site has a diff definition of baller. To some it means athletes, to some it means corporate men, and to some it can mean a nigga that makes $400 a week. I will admit, i have and will use tips on how to "find" ballers but that dowsnt demean the person I am. I wil soon have a college degree. I am young, have my own s*** that I pay for so me looking for a baller is my business and what I want to do. And the minute i see a man with a ring, i cross him off my list. I think those women are just bitter. Theyre nervous b/c theyre aware that their man may be with someone else. But if the stand up for a minute to let the stick fall out of tgeir ass then maybe their man will be mire faithful. I think this site is a great tool. Even though I am anonymous (sp) I still dont mind standing by what I post or why Im here. Sorry for the long post, I just got bothered because as its been said married hoes were once single hoes. I use the word "hoes" loosely as it relates to the topic.

You ladies did great on the show. Boss if that was you in the red, youre very pretty :)

Now Im off to click on some ads lol

Thanks @missgood

Comment by Sheli on April 23, 2012 at 5:27pm

I can honestly say I didn't join BA with the intentions on learning how to steal someone's man nor find a baller. This site just had some BOMB ass stories and knew ALL the gossip. I only "follow" 2 athletes and then my Boo Erik Spoelstra, other than that, the "how to find a baller thing" I don't get into, so I really wish they would have talked about the other aspects of BA. I actually thought that men would have been the ones with the preconceived negative opinion of BA, not the women.

And as someone said, Tia's husband is cheating and she's bitter, she's not going to take it out on him b/c she'll lose her comfortable lifestyle, so her only other option is to be mad at other women. I don't know all the details to his little tryst BUT I do know that he's cheated with a young lady from the Pembroke Pines area, he was making the payments on her condo and her Lexus. Are they still dealing with each other Nope, but according to her & her homegirls he was hitting that.

I know I'm going to get yelled at for typing that but, I hate when people act all uppity!!
