Shaunie O'Neal: Basketball Wives Firings Not My Doing

by at . Comments

Shaunie O'Neal, the former wife of Shaquille O'Neal, denies she played any role in getting three fellow Basketball Wives stars fired. Do you believe her?

O'Neal is adamant that it's not her fault that the cast members were axed and insists she learned the surprising casting news when everyone else did.

Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed and Kesha Nichols are getting the heave-ho.

Basketball Wives Season 4 Cast

Basketball Wives: So much drama. So few actual wives.

Sources close to Shaunie, who's also an executive producer on the show, say O'Neal was blindsided and that the production company leaves her in the dark.

O'Neal says she's butted heads with higher-ups over the violent direction the show was headed (brawls, fights, bitchiness) and has been ostracized.

Moreover, Shaunie says in the wake of the firings, she's willing to walk away from the popular series "if it becomes something she no longer believes in."

Try to contain your laughter at that last part.

shaunie is a liar and she fired the persons who were on her bad side. shaunie should ashamed of herself for telling jen to forget about what nia did referring her to things she says when she is upset but what shaunie failed to realise, saying something and physically assaulting someone is completely different. the problem with the different situations is that whenever the fights happen later tami, evelyn and shaunie would laugh like its a big joke. tami and evelyn are bullies. for tami u would think she would know better since she said her daughters were bullied. also her apology to keisha wasnt genuine. i loved royce she was my favourite; she was honest and real. i wont be watching this show anymore.

Of course, fire the girls who get picked on. Royce was my favorite, she was real and down to earth. Tammi and Evelyn are the bullies and the ones responsible for the violence. Now it'll be more violent as they turn on each other.

I think the wrong women were fired. Tami and Evelyn are animals on this show. They obviously have anger problems and combine that with their foul mouth low class behavior you have 2 people that should be ashamed of themselves and not be given a paycheck for their behavior. And to think that they both have daughters that see their mothers behave like this on national television, they must be so proud.

This show is pathetic. How do you even call this Basketball Wives when most of them weren't even wives to begin with. Being a girlfriend or ex-fiance doesn't mean nothing. Do you know how many girlfriends and hoes these players have? Enough already of these pathetic shows.

Rename it the show "8 Gold Digging Ignorant Hoes" who act like they have actually done something worthy in the world.

Mad, Dee, Truelly, Spare me, Mia, I love you guys!!! You all speak the obvious. Shaunie, dear stand up for yourself - now is the time to walk away from your popular series. I can't believe that the show has become something that YOU believe in - anger, trash, bullying, physical assault... or are you waiting to be personnaly affected before you walk away? I understand this is a show, but this show is not a comedy, well it could be at times.Stop the drinking and be real with yourself, these are some serious issues. Like Aretha Franklin's song says "Whose fooling who? Groovy out!

People, please boycott this show and station. Remember money and ratings talk. Shaunie is the head of the snake. Tami is a lair. Evelyn is a mad dog. The Temptations said it best, "beauty is only skin deep" but ugliness is to the bone. Suzie is a non-mother---- factor. Evelyn deserves Ocho, can't wait to see how that union turns out. Shaunie, I am sure you got plenty of money after divorcing Shag; you had enough kids! Since you claim to be so religious remember this; so what has a man(woman)who gains this whole world and looses his(her) precious soul! Remember there is power in numbers; we should not sit by and allow them to portray us women (especially black women) in this manner. Actions speak louder than words. Peace out.
