Kris Humphries has developed some thick skin since Kim Kardashian filed for divorce — because he barely batted an eye at Madison Square Garden tonight … when the entire stadium erupted in a chorus of boos.

You gotta see the clip — Kris subs in … and the disapproval from tens of thousands of Knicks fans is DEAFENING.

It’s Kris’ first game back after he re-signed with the Nets this week — a one-year contract worth a reported $8 million.

The outspoken Basketball Wife recently had an interview with Egypt Said Soand talked about the new season of Basketball Wives, as well as how she managed to keep money in her pocket in the past and her pending lawsuit with former manager, Jerry Silverhardt.

Check out a few excerpts from the interview below.

On why she decided to joined the second season of ‘Basketball Wives’
With “Basketball Wives,” they approached me when they did their first season. They contacted [my manager] and you know I just wasn’t really ready to go on a show, talk about Kenny. You know I had moved so past that. In addition to, I really didn’t want to go back to the reality genre. So between the year that they had their first season and the second season which is when I actually came onto the show, my family fell on a hardship I actually introduced that on the show. You know my daughters and I had been on food stamps and we had been on medical assistance through the state of New Jersey. And so I was looking for something income wise. I was working a 9-5 job in corporate America. And when I watched the first season of Basketball Wives I felt like my story wasn’t on there. I’m sitting here like in the dark. My lights are out. You know that’s not my moment. I’m not champagne brunching and mani’s and pedi’s everyday and I felt that I had a valuable story to tell…to show my particular situation and what me and my daughter’s were going through so I contacted VH1.

On how she was earning a living before Basketball Wives
I’ve been working in the industry like I said for 12, 13 years. I literally book a TV show every year as a series regular. Now what people don’t understand about the industry is we do pilots. Then the pilots go through a testing phase and if they don’t test well they don’t get picked up and they never make it to air. But I’ve basically been supporting myself for these 12 years doing pilots.

On whether a fight really broke out between Jennifer and Evelyn at Shaunie O’Neal’s birthday party
I can’t really give too much away but I can tell you this. This season is filled with a lot of twists and turns. Alliances that were there or that people have followed through the “Basketball Wives” journey that they thought were solid, some of those fall by the wayside, some of those alliances are re-established. You know everything is kinda all over the place and I have to tell you honestly the past two seasons that we’ve been on…we end the season and I feel that we’re all gonna at least be cool. That everybody can be amicable for the most part. This is the one time and we’re still taping that I really don’t know how this is gonna end. I don’t know whose gonna be friends, whose gonna hate each other, because it’s really all over the place.

On her relationship with film director/producer Jerry Lamothe [Tami and Jerry worked on the film ‘Tombs’ together]
So far so good. Knock on wood. We’ve just been hanging in there. We decided that we want to be in a committed relationship with each other and because we love each other. We’re raising three daughters between the two of us and that’s important for us to present a strong foundation and a strong family unit for them. So we don’t want to be the type of people that have significant others coming in and out of our kids lives and once we decided to be committed to each other, that’s what it’s been and going strong for about four years now. Babies, I don’t think. I would have another baby for him because I’m so in love with him so I would have another baby but he doesn’t want to have anymore children and marriage, you know we both have been there and done that and, we have that ring, we have that wedding, we have that piece of paper and those things were the most tumultuous relationships that we have been in so now we’re just making a commitment to each other on another level-spiritually, emotionally and physically- that we can just stand behind and stand solid on. We really don’t need the paper.

As we’ve all finally started to get over Tiger Woods and his never ending stream of mistresses, it appears that Kobe Bryant may be about to pick up where Tiger left off. Last week the NBA star’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, filed for divorce and it appears she’s got good reason. A friend of Vanessa told the tabloids, “Vanessa estimated that he was averaging at least 10 affairs a year with different women over the course of their marriage and puts his number of conquests at 105.”

  • The insider added, “The lies and deceit hurt, of course, but racking up those kinds of numbers is mind-blowing and left her devastated. And when she discovered he was cheating during the recent NBA lockout, that was the final straw. Her private detective caught him redhanded with incriminating photos.”

Robin recently spoke with Essence about interracial love.

On how it feels to know that people are getting married and making babies to his music:
It’s actually the best thing. It’s nice if you can make someone drop it like it’s hot, or pop a bottle. But we’re always dropping it and popping it. What I realize about the difference between me and my peers — you know, Chris Brown and Drizzy Drake and all my musical peers — is that they haven’t been with the same woman for 18 years and I’ve been with a Black woman for 18 years. I’ve never dated a White woman. Don’t want to. I’ve never been on a date with a White woman. When you have that relationship and that means the most to you — you know I can’t live without that woman, she is my muse, my best friend, and my creative partner. I didn’t have a great relationship with my mom and she didn’t have a great relationship with her dad and we became that for each other. She’s my mama and I’m her daddy. I even call her mama and she calls me daddy. We are that to each other.

The media often tells Black women that they’re better off dating White guys. What’s your response to that?
I think that’s ridiculous. There are so many good Black men out there that are hardworking, decent, and handsome, you know? To start that rumor is as bad as starting any other negative rumor. There are great Black men out there. There are only a few good White men — trust me. (Laughs) Good luck finding a good White man who understands your journey. I only have three White friends. I’ve got 20 Black male friends, who are all good men who take good care of their wives, and good care of their children. I know amazing Black men. Maybe the women have to take better care of their men. Maybe you’re being too stubborn. Maybe you’re not saying you’re sorry. You have to take good care of him, too. You have to give love to get love.
