Shaunie O’Neal showed us she wasn’t playing when she said that she would fire three of the ‘wives’ from the VH1 reality show, Basketball Wives if she could. She has done it. According to recent reports, Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed and Kesha Nichols have been fired. This comes to no real surprise to me, those were the three that I guessed would be fired.
When Shaunie made the previous statement about firing three of the wives, the reason was because she did not like the (negative) direction in which the show was going. Seeing as though she has fired the less controversial members of the cast, we have to wonder if she really meant what she said. Will she hire wives that will get along better with the group? Or wives that will be about the very threats they make? Does she think that no one would watch the show if it was her, Evelyn, Tammi and Suzie? One thing is for sure, with this move, she will have fans of the show anticipating season 5. I’m interested, and I can’t even stand the show.
