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: 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.
