Shaunie O’Neal Claims She Wasn’t Behind “Basketball Wives” FiringsPublished by Natasha Fierce on Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at 10:00 am.
Shaunie O’Neal is denying she had anything to do with pink-slipping Royce Reed, Jennifer Williams and Kesha Nichols from Basketball Wives.
Sources close to Shaunie are telling TMZ that the BBW creator was “blind-sided” by the news and that the production company “leaves her in the dark about everything.” So much so, that she’s considering walking away from her executive producer contract.
Wow. That means our girl Shaunie must be telepathic or psychic or something, because she announced the news of the firings a full three days before they actually happened!
The source goes on to say that Shaunie wants Shed Media, the production company behind BBW, to know she is “this close” to storming away from the whole damn franchise if it “becomes something she no longer believes in.”
Well, Basketball Wives seems to have pretty much hit rock-bottom already and Shaunie’s still around, so we’re guessing she’s gonna stay put and collect her fat fee.
