For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
While Eric Williams was turning his Twitter timeline into Def Comedy Jam at the expense of Evelyn Lozada and Ochocinco, his former publicist Quin Marshall of TracyCainMedia Group was telling the world how she hasn't seen a check from the former basketball star.

"Eric is going in on Eve and Ocho yet hasn't even paid me for all that I did for him as his publicist! I sought Eric Williams on Twitter during the first season of Basketball Wives. We worked together for approximately 2 or 3 months. Any interview you saw, I facilitated that. We agreed on $2,500 per month. That was for marketing, promotion setting up his twitter pages, buying him Twitter followers etc. I used my own money to help him do that, thinking I would get it right back. He promised me I would. Then month 2 comes and goes and bottom line is he owes me about $5,000.
I've been nice and done nothing. But after reading his hate tweets to Chad and Ev, I decided to say something. I got him so much media exposure during that time and he knew for some of this I had to put my money up front. He swore he would repay me but he always had an excuse. I sent over my terms in a contract, he looked over it. We spoke afterwards and he said it was fine.He said he couldn't sign anything b/c of their impending divorce. But he verbally agreed to the terms so I proceeded to set up interviews etc.
I've even asked him to simply pay me for the money I put up for him and he said no, that he'd rather pay in full. I haven't talked to him in a year. I've learned a hard lesson, always get it in writing. Always"
I know from experience that a publicist's job is not an easy one yet it is a thankless one. The problem with Eric Williams in this case is that he is throwing stones while living in a glass house. You're not in a position to crack jokes when you have a debt with someone who helped you recover from bad press. She helped save what little image you have and you haven't paid her a dime. What's even worse is that Eric Williams had to BUY TWITTER FOLLOWERS, which leads me to believe no one cares about him anyway.
The sad thing is that it seems as if Eric had no intentions on paying her anyway. From the lies about why he couldn't sign a contract to him declining to pay what she put in to pay the full balance, something seems fishy about his actions and he needs to pay up.
