Not happy with what you’ve been seeing on this season of Basketball Wives? You’re not alone. And your voice is certainly being heard! After TONS of complaints from viewers about the blatant bullying taking place on the show, Shaunie O’Neal and VH1 have both come out, promising fans that next season, there will definitely be “more balance.” Yes, we’ve heard this all before, but this time, we’re thinking it might actually be true.
While fans were fuming watching the latest episode of Basketball Wives on VH1, the cast members were busy taping the upcoming Reunion Show, where producer Shaunie O’Neal answered some tough questions about the negative turn Season 4 has taken.
For their part in the mess, VH1 had this to say:
“Our viewers opinions always matter a great deal to us at VH1. Lately, there has been a lot of conversation about Basketball Wives, a series featuring strong, intelligent women with very passionate viewpoints which can sometimes escalate.
“We at VH1 agree with and support Shaunie and the show producers’ ‘no excessive physical confrontations’ policy on the series moving forward. We are all committed to balancing the candid, bold excitement that the viewers have come to love in the series with storylines and representations they can be proud of. Shaunie has been a strong advocate for a more balanced approach to the show and we, along with our producing partners at Shed Media, are all in agreement about moving forward with that goal.”
What do you think RTVM — Will the ‘Wives be able to tone it down for Season 5?
