Shaunie O’Neal Dishes On Why Passing Out Pink Slips Was Necessary For The ‘Basketball Wives’ Franchise

shaunie-oneal-bbw-s5Head Basketball Wife In Charge, Shaunie O’Neal, is gearing up for the premiere of season 5 on VH1 so she’s promoting her franchise like crazy so that we’ll all tune in.

Shaunie recently sat down for an exclusive interview with Sister2Sister magazine and dished on why passing out pink slips was necessary to keep up her Basketball Wives franchise and brand.

Of course BBW veterans Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman and Suzie Ketcham are still on the show along with newcomer Tasha Marbury who is the ex-wife of ex-wife of NBA player Stephon Marbury. 

Excerpts from the interview below:

On firing Jennifer Williams and Royce Reed:

Some of the exits were necessary, just because it wasn’t clicking anymore. It’s hard to continue filming with people that you just have nothing else to talk about or nothing in common with, or that relationship has withered away.

You have other people that situations made it bad and situations made your friendship different…[things] that are out of your control. I hate to see those moments happen. That’s not a great way to see somebody go. I wish some people could have stayed and made it work.

On why she’s kept Tami Roman thus far:

Well, Tami’s personality is …it’s incredible. You love her, hate her, whatever. You can’t live without some part of Tami on ‘Basketball Wives. She just brings so much to the show… There’s still something about her that drives you to watching.

I don’t know about y’all but I really think Suzie should’ve got booted off the show instead of Jennifer. At least Jennifer was actually married to Eric and is now doing something with herself besides being messy like Suzie, but hey, that’s just my opinion.

Check out a sneak peek below:

 

Basketball Wives season 5 premieres on VH1 Monday, August 19 @ 8pm EST. Will you be watching?
