What is going to happen to Basketball Wives?

This season Basketball Wives has been interesting because of the viewer backlash. Adult bullying was on full display and the women went from simply verbal assault to vicious physical assault. So VH1 and Shed Media were forced to do some soul searching and the promise is next season we will see a kinder, gentler Basketball Wives. The ringmaster of this circus has been Shaunie O’Neal. O’Neal has always portrayed herself as an observer. She never got her hands dirty, she let her minions do the dirty work while she gave the big eyed innocent look. On the season finale O’Neal consulted her pastor and asked him should she leave the show? We know she won’t the money is simply too good, but this season O’Neal’s mask was pulled off and she is as guilty as the ladies throwing blows.

Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed.

    The answer to the question raised in your heading is: who cares? Who has the time or interest to watch such shows? How empty must your own life be to seek distraction and entertainment from such soul-deadening spectacles?

      It is fine for you not to care, but their behavior is in the news so it is relevant in this space. Since I don’t know you and you do not know me I would not venture to speculate or criticize your life. I make my statements relevant to the post and not personal in nature. So you have a right not to watch, and I have the right to watch and the difference between us is I refuse to judge you.

    Shaunie’s “big-eyed innocent look” only goes so far and I’m over it! I know it’s about the bucks, but I don’t understand how she sits by and feeds into the nonsense. She needs to set some ground rules or step away and not be a part of the degradation.The women have been beyond ridiculous this season with the pettiness, bullying and abuse.
