Shaunie O’Neal Says People Who Bash ‘Basketball Wives’ But Watch LHHATL Are Hypocrites!

  • Pin It



Basketball Wives executive producer Shaunie O’Neal talks about Basketball Wives season 5 and the changes in the cast.

On 3 cast members being fired. How much do you have to do with their exits?
In some cases, I had a lot to do with it. In other cases, I didn’t. It goes beyond me, beyond an Executive Producer. It goes beyond a production level to a network level. When it goes that far, it’s out of my hands.

On “Basketball Wives: LA” Season 3
L.A. is coming back. They’ll be starting to tape in August. We’re getting a facelift thing done to L.A….actually, done. It’s not being done. It’s done. Expect some new cast members, not all.

On the fans who are tired of Basketball Wives’ gang mentality
“Those people that say that, I really don’t say anything to them to be honest. That’s their opinion. If you’re going to tell me you’re not going to watch “Basketball Wives,” but you tune into some of the other shows on the same network, it’s a little contradictory to me. If I were to try to convince somebody to watch, I would say that this season, there is growth. There is a whole lot of growth. There is some change in some people. Don’t look to see a bunch of Mother Theresas ‘cause that’s not happening, but you do see growth. I am very proud of season 5 of “Basketball Wives.” It’s growth and it is some change there. We’re not perfect, but we’re better.”

On cast members “turning over a new leaf.” What will surprise us?
“I don’t know that everybody’s turning over a new leaf. I think that’s been exaggerated a little bit. Like I said, there’s growth. I don’t think anyone on the cast has completely turned into someone new. I think there are surprises on who has grown some balls all of a sudden this season. There’s just growth. There’s a little regression in some moments, too, in some folks, but overall, there’s growth. There’s no one coming out brand new. I can’t say they’ve turned over a new leaf completely. It’s turning.”

People love ratchet reality shows – Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Real Housewives Of New Jersey/Atlanta, Bad Girls Club etc,. Ratchet brings in ratings and money for the networks.
