It’s official. Basketball Wives will be returning for a fifth season on VH1. And while we’re sure that there’s still going to be plenty of drama, regardless of how much they plan on toning things down, details on who will be involved in that drama are still unclear. In a recent interview, Executive Producer Shaunie O’Neal revealed that contract renewals won’t take place until August or September, and though she has “no problem walking away from the franchise,” there are definitely three cast members who shouldn’t expect to be asked back.
Of course, as with any docu-series type reality show, those changes will come in the form of a cast shake-up. So who’s on the chopping block?
Already, Shaunie O’Neal has talked about no longer appearing on the show…
“I don’t want to go back,” O’Neal tells The Insider. “I don’t want to sit in the midst of that anymore.
“I have no problem walking away from the franchise. The level of where it’s going is out of control,” Shaunie continues, saying that she won’t return if things don’t get better, but clarifying that she has until the end of the summer to make a final decision.
What she is sure about is what other cast members she doesn’t want to return to the show.
When asked if there were definitely people she would exclude from the next season, her response was:
“Yes. Three. Immediately, no questions asked. [It's] not anything personal, it’s just not where I’m trying to go. Not on the same page,” Shaunie explains.
Hmm… So which of the
ghetto hot messes ladies do you think Shaunie plans on firing, and who do you think she should fire instead? Sound off in the Comments section below.
