Three Basketball Wives Fired, But Shaunie O'Neal Says Firings Are Not Her Fault
Three basketball wives have been fired from the show, but don't blame Shaunie O’Neal.
She is denying she had anything to do with the firings of Royce Reed, Jennifer Williams and Kesha Nichols from Basketball Wives, reports TMZ.
According to Kiss Richmond, many are blaming Shaunie for bringing down the axe, despite her denials.
The website reports:
"Supposedly, Shaunie wanted to get rid of the dead weight. Sources say, her definition of dead weight equates non controversial. Viewers assumed Jennifer Williams would be fired after she refused to dismiss a lawsuit against Nia Crooks (Evelyn Lozada’s assistant) for assaulting her during taping.
As for Kesha Nichols, she simply didn’t bring enough drama to the table for viewers to care. And the rest of the cast often refused to tape with Royce Reed after she publicly criticized their actions and attitudes, and the fact she still is barred from talking about her baby’s daddy, NBA star Dwight Howard, on the show was reportedly becoming a problem."
The Christian Post reveals "viewers immediately flocked to social networking site Twitter to weigh in on the explosive reports."
"So Royce, Keisha [sic], and Jennifer were fired from Basketball Wives and they kept all the drama queens," Melody Kewl tweeted.
"Basketball Wives fired Royce, Jennifer and Kesha - all the people who weren't the problem *side eyes Shaunie, Evelyn and Tami*," Ziyanda N tweeted.
"@MAKAEL86 how does shaunie want the show to grow & become positive if she got rid of all the peacemakers?" MaiyaB tweeted.
Will Shaunie walk?
Shaunie has amped up even more drama, not only saying that she isn't behind the firings, but threatening to quit, according to TMZ.
According to a source cited by the website, "Shaunie is upset over the current situation and is willing to walk away from the series if it becomes something she no longer believes in."
