As reported last week, Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed and Kesha Nichols allegedly got their walking papers from producers of VH1′s hit show Basketball Wives.
Executive producer and cast member Shaunie O’Neal is now responding to rumors that she was a part of the axing of the three ‘Basketball Wives’.
O’Neal is claiming she was not aware of the cut until it was made public.
But Shaunie is telling friends, despite the accusations, the cuts were NOT made by her. Sources close to Shaunie (who is also an executive producer on the show) tell TMZ she was blindsided by the news. We’re told Shaunie says the production company leaves her in the dark about everything after she butted heads with them over the violent direction the show was headed (i.e on-air brawls and cat-fights).
According to our sources, Shaunie is upset over the current situation and wants Shed Media (the prod. co.) to know … she is willing to walk away from the series if it becomes something she no longer believes in.
We don’t believe you, you need more people!
It’s crazy that the women who caused the most drama this season are the one’s that are being kept on the show.
