The drink slinging, cat fighting and name calling drama has become the calling card of the nationally syndicated show, “Basketball Wives.” However, we are starting to get wind of a bit of remorse from the shows creator, Shaunie O’Neal, as she claims this is not what she signed up for.
The former basketball wife says her intentions for the show were to highlight the bond between women who understood what it was like to be married to an athlete, but now expresses, “I feel like that show is turning into ‘I have slept with a basketball player at some point in my life, so now I’m on Basketball Wives,” she told FOX news. “That’s definitely not what I brought to the table and not what I would be proud of having my name on.”
After recently expressing her dislike about the L.A. “Basketball Wives” cast, Shaunie is now speaking out against the direction of the show and has hopes of making some changes.
“I hate that it has to be a fight or an argument that gives us 4.2 million viewers,” she said. “I’m working as hard as I can to show some type of balance. We do know how to act.”
