The cast of VH1's Basketball Wives is making it clear to the network that they would like a pay raise. Now. Either they get it or they walk, sources say.
Filming for BBW Season 5 is underway, but Shaunie O'Neal, Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman and Suzie Ketcham currently do not have contracts.
The actually-unmarried wives are in the process of renegotiating their contracts and want big raises, claiming the show does VERY well for VH1.
For its part, the network supposedly made it clear to them that salary increases are not gonna happen and if anyone had a problem with that ...
Well, let's just say there are others who would love to take their place. Sad, but true.
Despite the deadlock, production schedules were sent out and the always-classy ladies began filming in hopes a deal would be worked out.
It hasn't been, and they're now threatening to peace out in a week. Stay tuned.
