Basketball Wives Miami has been renewed with a promise to have more harmony throughout the show. The reality show, everyone loves to hate, but can’t stop looking at, has been giving the green light for another season.
In an attempt to quiet the flames, Shed Media along with VH1 released statements assuring fans that the quality of the program would be more “balanced.”
“Shed Media US is fully committed to telling the compelling stories of the Basketball Wives in a balanced way. Our producing partner Shaunie O’Neal feels strongly about this, and we fully agree with this stance. We support her as she encourages the cast members to work out issues in a non-violent fashion. We look forward to working with her and the rest of the cast on conveying more balance in the next season,” Shed Media statement read.
“Our viewers’ opinions always matter a great deal to us at VH1. Lately, there has been a lot of conversation about Basketball Wives, a series featuring strong, intelligent women with very passionate viewpoints, which can sometimes escalate.
We at VH1 agree with and support Shaunie and the show producers’ “no excessive physical confrontations” policy on the series moving forward. We are all committed to balancing the candid, bold excitement that the viewers have come to love in the series with storylines and representations they can be proud of. Shaunie has been a strong advocate for a more balanced approach to the show and we, along with our producing partners at Shed Media, are all in agreement about moving forward with that goal.”
The news comes just as the ladies, minus Tami Roman, found enough self-restraint within them to be in one room together to tape the mandatory reunion show.
So, does Tami’s no-show mean she’s out? Not sure, but she has posted cryptic tweets suggesting she will not be back for the better-behaved version of BBW.
@CallMeCASH_ I actually hope they do well next season-I wish all the BBW’s the best of luck,” tweeted Tami in response to an angry follower.
Speaking of reunion show, all the women looked like they wouldn’t swat a fly. Jennifer Williams was a knockout in a rose-color Valentino gown with Chanel pearls and side-swooped hair. Her nemesis, Evelyn Lozada looked casual chic in a high-slit teal skirt, with a midriff bearing black top and a high bun. Catch the rest of the ladies look below.
Are you planning to watch next season? What about the reunion show?

Tami is nothing but a bully wendy williams is right dont watch this s–t
The behavior of Tami, especially the episode airing tonight, 5/14/2012, is despicable. You are a bully Tami, and like a typical bully, you pick on the weakest link. Get in Shaunie’s face. I dare you. You are an embarrasment to black women.

I like the show, Evelyn and Tami, you are both beautiful strong women,I like the both of you but you both are a disgrace to black and latina women. Why do every new lady have to be challenged by you two. Why, can’t you just welcome them. No one else does that. You two need to become grown women. You have daughters and they are watching you, how can you instill postive things when all you do is talk shit and fight. I am not trying to belittle neither one you, you both have already done that, you guys are ridiculous. By acting like little teenage girls always ready to fight (ignorance). Evelyn should not be on the show anymore, she will soon be a football wife, so I don’t get the show, most of these women were never married to a basketball player. The show is called basketball wives. I bet Evelyn and Tami are bullies, they need to meet some hood girls that will not back down and will take it to the street. You both don’t want to go to jail, but you are putting yourself in a position to go. Know this, some people don’t like fighting physically, but they do a legal fight by calling the police and filing a report, which is the right thing to do. It’s not chicken shit, that’s what people in the hood would say, but it’s called thinking before you react. I used to be the same way, fighting women and men because they pissed me off, but thank God, I grew up and realized i was only making myself looking stupid and what if someone decied to call the police on me, my kids would not have me around to make sure they are alright. Life is too short to be angry all the time. I see Jennifer has really grown and she is going to be okay. Her head is on right and she is pursing all the fighting the right way. She will come out on top by putting people in jail and suing them. The true women on the show is Shaunie, Kesha, Royce and Jennifer. Jennifer, I am happy for you and let them say what they want about you, keep your head up and stay who you are don’t let know one keep you from accomplishing what you are trying to.
I cannot believe that there will be a BBW Season 5. Since they didn’t listen to the over 25,000 people that signed the petition I am urging everyone to not only NOT WATCH this train wreck but please do not support the sponsors of this show or any spin offs. I also cant believe that Shaunie has the nerve to speak out about how she can no longer stand by and defend this show when for the last 4 seasons she has been an instigator for all this drama. She only speaks out now because she realizes that this mess may effect what most important to her. Her pocketbook!
I just wish that Jennifer and Evelyn will become friends again, good friends..!Something went wrong and I believe there is a secret that they both shared and somehow it caused a split,but thee only thing is neither of them is telling..!
I love B-Wivs of Miami no matter what they do. We are all aduts who no right from wrong. We as adults don't have to copy what we see others do on tv. If people don't wont to see them argue or fight, hey its your home and tv turn the channel or cut of the tv. I will watch no matter what. CC
