Which Basketball Wives Cast Member Is Slamming Shaunie O’Neal?: “Own Up To Your Part!”

May 31, 2012 08:39 AM by Shayla Perry

In the season finale of VH1‘s Basketball Wives, Executive Producer and cast member Shaunie O’Neal expressed her concern about being associated with the ladies on the show, leaving fans to wonder if she’ll be returning for season 5, and making at least one of her cast mates UPSET. So who is it that wants Shaunie to stop acting like she’s “a saint,” and “own up” to her part in all the drama?

After having a few issues with Ms. O’Neal in past seasons, Royce Reed was a little angry when she saw the season finale of Basketball Wives…to put it mildly. Especially after watching Shaunie try to play the peacemaker between Jenn and Evelyn, when she was the one who refused to film with Royce when they were having problems in the past.

“We all have our issues and neither of us is perfect, nor do we pretend to be,” Reed writes in her VH1 blog, addressing O’Neal directly. “Please don’t act like you’re a saint and more people would respect you for that. Own up to your part then we can all sit down as women and hash it out.

“Hopefully after watching this episode, everyone in the cast sees how you truly view all of us,” she continues. “You drew the lines in the sand. It’s not really fair to be one of the executive producers and a cast member at the same time, is it?

“If you truly want to turn a new leaf, let’s be adults and sit down and talk. Let’s right our wrongs, let’s fix what’s broken, and let’s bond what’s been separated! Isn’t that what all of this was originally for? To form a sisterhood from our past hurts and pains. Sisters fight but they always have each others back. What happened? When did that get lost?”

What do you think RTVM: Do you agree with Royce? Is Shaunie acting like she’s above all of the drama? Have you lost respect for her this season?Should she remove herself from the show? Sound off in the Comments section below.

    I agree with Royce….Shaunie nees to own up to her back stabbing ways. She pretends to try to get Evelyn and Jenn talking while pretending that she is still Jenn’s friend. Never does she tell Evelyn how wrong she is, but talks behind Jenn’s back. Jennifer has moved on and Evelyn keeps coming up to her starting trouble. Why doesn’t Shaunie tell her to move on as well. The friendship is over. Stop trying to appease Evelyn. You were friends with both when they were friends, but you have clearly chosen your side. A hot getto mess!!!!

    Shanie is nothing but a pond to Evelyn nd Tammy because she feeds right into everything they are saying and doing. She is so afraid of them until she has lost control of her own show and she needs to have a talk with Evelyn and Tammy why, because thy have ruin the show with all the fighting and the ugly language. Both of them have daughters and the daughters act better than their parents and they are certanly can’t be a icon for any young woman. And Susie is nohing but asnitch for them, she thinks she is in with the incrown but Lord if she only knew. Shaunie news flash, get your show together because people are loosing respect for you. You are to intelligent to allow this type of behavior, my suggestion to you is to pull the plug ASAP!!!!! We are tired of this behavior that is being displayed, and im glad Jenn has left that circle.

    Royce is DEAD ON RIGHT!!!! Shaunie is a backstabbing slithering snake. WOW, isn’t it funny that Tammi and Evelyn became such good friends when Evelyn also thought that Tammi was a HOT GHETTO MESS on season 2.

    Yes, Shaunie was always walking in with the drama. Always seen sitting with the drama and always seen hanging out with the drama.

    Shaunie is riding the public opinion roller coaster. Now she wants to be above it all. She was there when Evelyn jumped off the table at Jenn, she was there when Tami bullied Keysha, so where was her appropriate behaviour rant then. She is the biggest hypocrite on TV.

  7. Danie D Says:
    May 31st, 2012 at 11:43 am

    Shaunie needs to be ashamed of herself, if I’ve never seen her personality, I’ve definitely seen it during this last season. She needs to decide if she wants to be a cast member or executive producer because she can’t differentiate between the two. Evelyn has fought with every individual on the show, she has single handidly ruined the show by arguing with every cast member. If Shaunie can’t see that then her new name is Ray Charles. The childish behavior is horrible. The new name of the show should be Basketball Xs. They sure don’t represent the Basketball Wives.

    Jen you go girl!!! Thank you for not stooping to Shaunie, Evelyn, or Tami’s level, especially EVELYN. Kesha you are a chicken. Royce stop falling in love with everyone you meet but you still my girl. Susie you are two faced. Kenya you are a good friend to Jenifer don’t change that even though the jury is still out on you.

    I felt that Shaunie should have deflated the situation a long time ago. Royce is the best, my question is,Who is left. Shaunie, Evelyn, Suzie and Tammie. It appears that Royce can head up her own basketball wives, Evelyn would be the one that doesn’t fit.

  10. Karen Says:

    I agree with Royce, Shaunie waits to the eleventh hour to take a stand and a weak one at that. Shaunie you co-signed on all of the drama that went down and throw a couple of stones and then hid your hands.. so please don’t act like you are above it. This is your show all you had to do was say “Stop It”..You didn’t and for that you need to be ashamed. Now who are you going to drop? Jen? because she put a stop to people (your employees) from putting their hands on her.. Really who are you going to drop…you need to drop yourself… shameful!

    Jennifer is a lady and a lady knows when its time to leave. Shaunie you are hot ghetto mess with bling-running behind raggedy Evelyn! Evelyn you’re evil and foul. I can’t see how Chad can marry a women like you. He must be gay. Tami, you’re just as bad as Evil Evelyn. Royce and Kesha are geniune good people. Susie, you’re a rat and Kenya is a snake. BTW, aint none of ya’ll no BASKETBALL WIFE!!! You need to change the name to BITTERBALL WITCHES!!!

    It is so sad, GROWN WOMEN display on National television as BULLIES! In society the school system is trying to stop BULLIES. This show displays bullies to the highest level! The sad part you only bully the new girls. Tami has been a HOT MESS since her first appearance on the show. I find it ironic that Tami has never jumped on Shanie; after, Tami spanked Evelyn they are now the best of friends. Tami, at 41 people will talk about you, at 41 why do you care what people think of you? Tami, what you did to Keisha was nothing but BULLY SOMEONE, WHO IS FRAGLIE AND ONLY WANTS TO BELONG. Not to mention you are jealousy of her. The show is no longer entertaining, it is sad! I am happy for Jen and Royce for moving on. Evelyn I use to think you were classy; your ugly ways and dirty mouth over shadows looks, looks that eventually, will fade. Suzie you will do anything to keep them off your two-face self.

    Agree with royce and previous comments about shaunie. Shaunie condones that ghetto behavior and mentality. Not once does she ever tell evelyn or tammy they are wrong. After the drama they all sit around talk, joke and laugh about it. You can tell it’s phony friendships because if they were true friends than you can to tell your girlfriend when she is wrong.
    I don’t blame Jen for walking away like she does and has. It’s no point in keep trying to talk with any of them because they are all on evelyn side.
    The finale with shaunie talking about the show and her relationship with them was phony and for TV. The show was renewed and they will be back talking about they have worked through their issues and or been through therapy. Yeah Right!

    Royce is absolutley right in what she is saying Shaunie has not own up too her part in any of this she should have been a peace maker from the get but instead she took sides laugh at things that were mean and cruel and let’s not forget her roll in bullying Gloria Govan she followed her all the way too her car jaw jecking and threatening her.Now she want too make her self look innocent in all of this ghetto mess.What Shed Media is doing is using all of these ghetto hood rats to there advantage they don’t care about your reputation or image and now that Royce has spoken out she probably want return and if she does her role will be limited and now S2S magazine has fired Tammi for the lie she told in the final episode I mean this gets uglier every day.Pimped out Shaunieand her show is ahot mess cancel already.

    Shaunie looks like a backstabber and a turncoat to women who were suppose to be some of her best friends. Shaunie encouraged this behavior right from the beginning talking about Tami’s drinking and not being in control. Talking about Evelyn’s out of control temper. Shaunie had something negative to say about all the girls behavior and even got into a almost fight with Gloria and her sister. Shaunie should have stayed behind the camera not in front of it. We started out with such a surmountable amount of respect for her as the wife of one of the larger than life football players getting a divorce that wasn’t messy. Co- parenting reasonably with Shaq, being a black business with several irons in the fire.Now Shaunie looks bad I had hoped she would be the example for other young women who could mimic her in life, but now I think not.

    June 1st, 2012 at 12:50 pm

    I agree with Royce, Shaunie was nothing but a person full of drama and keep it going. Tammy was a hot mess for being a 40 year old bully. The show is wack now. Jen need to confess her wrongs to Evelyn and get off the barbie mess. Evelyn need to boot leonardo “turtles in a half shell” lol. Kesha got to grow a back bone. Kenya need to check in with a doctor cause she looking crazy. Susie need to stop riding on every body butt lol!

    WAKE UP BLACK WOMEN – Stop supporting those shows which portray African America Women as such negative stereotypes. Incorrect stereotypes at that. Most of us are monogamous to our husbands/partners, raising our children, honoring ourselves, respecting our elders/ancesters and putting God first. That is the kind of behavior that has supported and sustained our race all of these years. Don’t let the white, males who are in charge of these shows get away with this. This has been getting worse from Girlfriends to Housewives to Basketball Wives to Single Ladies I and II. Demand quality television not this garbage!

  18. Dee Dee Says:
    June 1st, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    I lost respect for Shaunie back when she egged on Evelyn to tell Tami that she had slept with her ex-husband, then just watched the fight. I can’t believe that these grown women would act so disgracefully on tv. They are embarrassing. Royce, you took the right road. Kesha you are not a chicken for avoiding the drama. Jen you are a lady compared to the others.

  19. Wendy Ferguson Says:
    June 2nd, 2012 at 1:05 am

    I am so fed up with this show. I can no longer watch foul mouthed grown women fighting each other over NOTHING!
    Shaunie is most definitely the root of all evil . So it was so hilarious when she act like she was so appalled by the behavior of her “friends” Tami and Evelyn! Shaunie and Suzie are the main ones adding fuel to the fire. Jennifer may be uppity and pretentious and Kesha may be scared of her own shadow but TAMI, EVELYN, SUZIE, and SHAUNIE are the poorest excuse for women I have ever seen. They need to grow up!! They give real “Basketball Wives” a bad name. Lastly…..please get some INTENSIVE in- patient therapy for Tami and Evelyn because they truly need it. Those two are truly mentally deficient hood- rats!!!!

    yes royce you are correct i said doing season one shaunie was shaddy. she gossip behind everyone back their all judgemental and she needs to be home assisting her kids with their issues because i know baby shaq is not without her share of insults tammi and evelyn smh your man said he wanted to sleep around and you gave him the ok and yet you slept with tammi’s husband and she aint got not problem with it but kesha states the truth she is making a fool of herself and she wants to physically abuse her suzie she has four faces she will back stab her mother in order to avoid an ass whipping and yes shaunie we all see you as the HOT GHETTO MESS YOU ARE AND ALWAYS WILL B

  21. Labresha Ferguson Says:

    I think that they should end the show all together. After season 1 they show went down hill. I think that if they didn’t add Tami to the show it would be a little bit better.

    tammy is that all you know how to do is bully.
    Jen, thank you for showing young ladys that they don’t have to act like a GHETTO PIG to get there point across. evelyn if anyone is a whore it’s you girl. susie get some back bone about youself.
    this show started out as fun but now it’s not.Kids are killing themselves because of stuff like
    this.Tammie what does your GIRLS say about the
    way you act.oh! they might be afraid of you too.
    cancel this show!!!!!

    Royce is so right; Shaunie sits back and watch these women provoke fights, never intervening; but she occasionally smirks at their verbal rants and fighting. How dare you Shaunie to try and fool the public about your involvement in these fights, most of them are planned by you and the rest of your gang of three off camera. Shaunie is a poor leader because she is oblivious herself about how people are to be treated. People have a right to an opinion and Shaunie, Evelyn and Tami have a problem with that. People should be able to say what they want to say without someone trying to attack them

  27. Lee Says:
    June 4th, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    Tami is a bully, Evelyn seems to be getting it about the violence is not the answer. I do think that Shaunie and Evelyn seems to let Tami get away with a lot. Like John Salley just said, no matter how you talk to Tami, she will twist it. “I was mad,” “You took it the wrong way” what ever spin Tami wants to put on it. A master manipulator, I love Shaunie and I hope you she see and rectify this situation

    all garbage and we have had ENOUGH of them.

  29. getsomebusiness Says:
    June 4th, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    Yes, Shaunie should remove herself from the show. She stood by while Tammi and Evelyn totally made fools out of their selfs and disgrace the black women of today. Most of the time Shaunie came off as a active participant to most of the situations that took place on show instead of being a peacemaker. Most importantly we have to remember none of these crazy women are basketball wives, get us some real wives who exactly can show these fools how to act like real ladies. Please get rid of Tammi and Evelyn!!!!!!!

    P>S Suzie is a snitch, she needs to go to!

  30. jula Says:
    June 4th, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Get rid of Tami and Evelyn! These women are an embarrassment to women. They are mothers with daughters! No class! Pure trash! They should be kicked off the show and take Suzi with them. She is two-faced and a undercover troublemaker. I believe Shaunie has a good idea for producing the show, she just selected some trashy women. Next tme get real wives, not live in trash.

  31. Simonsays Says:
    June 4th, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    Well it is what it is…Shaunie now that you cannot throw the rock and hide your hands….you want to be a peace maker…no no…you are just as bad as Tammy and Evelyn, you like drama too…I use to think you didn’t and care but it is what it is…As for Evelyn, you were never a true friend to Jen she was your running buddie….Eric told her, “you don’t know Evelyn” and he didn’t lie on that one…Evelyn is a bully and if she was a true friend she would have understood your pain no matter what…she never mention one good thing about Jen. Plus she tend to be in her business about another so call friend that works for her…Friends just don’t do that you can be friends with folks but stay out of there other friends relationship..Evelyn likes drama and we saw that all season…she wants the gang to like who she likes or get out the circle…Tammy and Evelyn are just alike they like to bully and fight…yep and I am surprised they have not fought Shaunie yet but of course this is there boss too…of all the people on the show I expected them to really rally around for Jen instead they just kicked her to the curb and expected her to lay there… and as usually Suzie is a new carrier…but never for good….This season was hurtful and shameful. If it ends now I would not care…as much as I enjoyed other seasons the last 2 shows to much fighting and drama for no reason except “I just don’ like you”. Remember Meeka? I hurts to see this but birds of a feather focks together….Keep moving Jen…Royce and who ever want a life and not drama!!!!

    Shanuie it saddened me to see you act is if you where such this peace maker when in reality you had a lot to say. Your where laughing and thinking everything was so funny throwing blows at jenn instead of telling the ladies that they wwhere wrong that why Tami and eve think that there so right how dare you’ll try to compare her husband to evelyn. No comparing the two I thini love royce for putting you out there you need to stop sugar coating your mess honey if royce is off the show we know why because you are mad.

    Wow, you know what Monica L will have to go down in history that she sucked a president dick, but that want mean nothing cause most women has sucked some man dick at one time are another, But Tammy and Evelyn you two will go down as hated for protraying black woman as stark raving fools and to be honest with you both about those fake as apologies that you gave @ the sit down with everyone at the end of the show was manadatory but ur ass would not make the next season! Now Shanuie all I can do for you is shake my head and pray that you get it together, cause by saying that you are the producer and a cast member makes me think that u r a dam fool. And listen I don’t use the word fool lightly cause back in Bibles days to call some one a fool, was a very hard label to break! Susie girl I’m not mad at you, ur just trying to do what you can do to keep urself a check coming in.But ask urself is it worth it? Royce, Kiesha, Kennya,Jenn do a spin off, you guy’s don’t need the rest off them, you four girls can put on a show where you guys are having fun and working showing how we black women really do it, cause I work about 4 jobs to make all of my life happen and cutting conners here to make this happen that all we want rel life drama. if you need help with dialoge send me and email…lol

    A part of me really like Shaunie and Evelyn, but I found it disgraceful, embarrassing and heartbreaking that as mothers and human beings they would sit there and allow Tami to behave that way with Keisha. You are two of the stronger women on the show and for several reasons you had alot of power in that situation…. You disnt say a word. You allowed tami to embarrass herself and Keisha to go at it alone. Tami is a hot ,horrible mess. She should leave tv and attend anger management daily! Keisha does need to learn to stand up for herself but I feel like that’s the only thing she is guilty of. She is a grown woman she can have an option and express it to whom ever she likes! That scene wih Tami saying “I’m not gone hit you cause you look so pitiful” is sooo traumatic . This show is officially garbage. No way to redeem

    This whole show is getting out of control. I hate the fact that all they do is fight and disrespect each other. Shaunie needs to step up and produce a positive show for black women and quit just allowing everyone to fight so she can keep the ratings up. Yes having several women(black or white) there will be some drama but this needs to stop. If things dont change, I’ll quit watching the show !!!!

  37. sandy Says:
    June 7th, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    Shaunie, you are ghetto,you are weak, and the concensus is you are a bit simple minded and have zero strength. You like the drama, you get a kick out of it because you are lonely and surround yourself with trashy women such as Tami and Evelyn. Tami gets so offended that people talk behind her back; I guess she is the only one that can trash talk behind people; same goes for tacky thug Evelyn. Suzie, you’re just a weak mess, not “HOT” there…..please. Each of you, go get an education, do more with your lives than make a fool of yourself on tv and make black women look foolish. Angry uneducated women are weak.

    Just watched the 2nd reunion show – what a disappointment! How dare Shaunie and John Sal try to gloss over the disgusting behavior of the women on BBW. Shaunie – fans may not “know” you or the other women – but YOU made the decision to bring a “reality” show about women associated with pro basketball players to national TV (not exactly the most intelligent group of men in the world but oh well). On the other hand – what you and the producers have shown the nation is exactly what ex-fans came to “know” about castmembers – and what was shown was vulgar, violent and disgusting – so if the shoe fits wear it. Perhaps you’d prefer a show that NO ONE watched. Don’t worry – many, many viewers will not give this trainwreck another chance.

    As for John Sally – where do you get off and what are you smoking? BBW is a reality show – not scripted TV – and black women in the U.S. are angry and disgusted by the filth and violence the show projected – and we have a right to be because in this country all things are NOT equal – and as black females what the world sees on TV is what is associated with black people collectively as a group – a fact you may have forgotten playing with balls for a living. You were born taller than average and spent your youth on a basketball court because I suppose that came naturally to you instead of medical school – but the majority of black people must deal with hundreds of years of stereotypes that have lingered despite the ridiculousness of stereotypes – and because most whites do not have personal relationships with black people (you can’t count booster clubs or “fans” wanting an autograph) the persistence of stereotypes of an African-American phenomenon. I now feel your IQ is on the same level as the women of BBW – I would advise you to grow up but apparently that hasn’t improved things in your case.

    p.s. To arrogantly dismiss and insult viewers of a show that you’re associated with and pays you a salary is not only insulting but unprofessional and foolish – hopefully the show’s producers will re-evaluate your involvement next time around. I can no longer stand the sight of you either.

    WOW, so Shaunie thinks that this entertainment, funny, puye comedy. Well Ms Oneal, if it’s so fun let your kids watch it and have a good laugh too. It’ only entertaing to you because you got to sit back and watch and laugh the entire season. Let’s see how hard you laugh when this show is cancelled for lack of vieweres season 5.

    I just finished watching the reunion. Shaunie is still weak and taking up for that monster Tami. I was so proud of Shaunie and her accomplishments, but she is letting “nothings” ruin her name, show, and probably future endeavors. Shaunie, let go and stand up for your show,your kids, your reputation, (even though you need a make over) I think you are a good person, but you are allowing that monster take over. Stand Up. Fire that trash.

    I think Shaunie, Evelyn, Tami & Suzie are all stuck in a timewarp they think that they are still in highschool and when anyone tries remind them that they are over grown women they become angry and want to fight.
    Shaunie, I understand why your husband cheated on you and left you for another woman you are sooo fake that he probably didn’t know who he was in bed with.
    I successfully predicted that one day Jennifer would wake up and get away from Evelyn now she can look back and see its not a good thing to have people treat you like you were a puppydog and I predict, just as successfully, that this show will not last.
    Shaunie I just want you to remember this scripture that the wealth of the wicked is being stored up for the righteous. You Shaunie are a hot mess and I blame you more than the other women because instead of doing something good with your money you got from your husband you prefer to employee ignorant women like yourself. Now everyone can see why your husband left you.
