UPDATE-Basketball Wives is set to fire three wives, Jennifer Williams, Kesha Nichols and Royce Reed. While the rumors began swirling earlier this week when Shaunie O’Neal stated she would cut 3 wives without question if she had a choice a more official word came last evening. With the three wives gone that leaves Evelyn Lozada, Kenya Bell, Tami Roman, Suzie Ketcham and Shaunie. If you’re new to Basketball Wives and only caught season four you saw enough to note that the ladies receiving the pink slip did nothing to start any drama. On the other hand every single one of the wives remaining have had their hands in the drama that later resulted in a boycott; Suzie for instigating, Tami for bullying, Evelyn for violence and Shaunie for aiding and abetting. And Kenya was desperately wanting to start some drama with Kesha.
It was shameful to witness Shaunie and Evelyn attempt to slam Jennifer for filing a police report and lawsuit against Nia Crooks for slapping her. Shaunie called the incident a mistake yet there was never a scene that showed Nia being apologetic. To this day Nia’s defense is Jenn asked for it.
These were Shaunie’s words in the interview,
“There would be three who are out immediately in Miami. No questions asked. Not in anything personal, just not where I’m trying to go. Not on the same page.”
Where is Shaunie trying to go? When the boycott began it was because of Evelyn and later Tami’s disgusting behavior which then forced Shaunie and Shed Media to begin releasing statements promising a more balanced show. Though we shouldn’t be surprised by the firing. Meeka Claxton was bullied by Tami and she too was fired. It’s obvious what is important to Shaunie and Shed – it’s just a pity they think they’re fooling the public.
What can of message is Basketball Wives sending?
