Last week we learned that Royce Reed, Kesha Nichols, and Jennifer Williams were getting fired from Basketball Wives, and just before the firings were announced, executive producer, Shaunie O’Neal revealed that she wanted to fire three of the wives, without revealing any names. Now, Shaunie O’Neal is claiming that she had nothing to do with the firings – say what? Read on for the scoop!
“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 O’Neal stated prior to the news that Kesha Nichols, Royce Reed, and Jennifer Williams were getting axed from Basketball Wives, but now she says that she had nothing to do with the firings!
According to TMZ, those close to Shaunie O’Neal have revealed that Shaunie knew nothing about the firings, as the production company does not keep her in the loop ever since she clashed with them over the violent direction that the show has taken. Rumor has it that Shaunie O’Neal has let the production company know that she is not happy with them, and is willing to walk away if the show becomes something “she no longer believes in.”
Shaunie O’Neal has told friends that she did not have anything to do with the firings, and she actually found out when everyone else did. Something smells fishy to us.
What do you think of this revelation? Do you believe Shaunie knew nothing about the firings? Is she lying? Are these the right three to fire from the series? Or were you hoping someone else would have gotten cut? Sound off in the Comments section below.
