What Is This World Coming To?Â Shaunie O'nealÂ is extremely upset these days insisting that she "Didn't Fire Anyone". As previously reportedÂ Shaunie Oneal did host an interviewÂ where she revealed that if it was up to her, threeÂ basketballÂ wiveswould get the axe. Shortly afterwards, threeÂ basketballÂ wiveswere fired fromÂ the show. Royce Reed,Â Jennifer Williams, and Kesha Nichols were the three who got the axe fromÂ the show. Shaunie did speak in reference to parting ways with threeBasketballÂ Wives, however she never named names. Apparently, Shaunie and the media company Shed is at odds with Â the outcome because Shaunie wants them to know that she is extremely upset with their decision and will walk away fromÂ the show, if she doesn't agree with it's direction. Here is the story as I read it.
"BasketballÂ Wives" starÂ Shaunie O'NealÂ says it's not her fault threeÂ castÂ members were axed ... telling people she learnedÂ the newsÂ when everyone else did ... sources close to Shaunie tell TMZÂ
As TMZ previously reported, three major "BBÂ Wives"Â were cannedÂ recently --Â Jennifer Williams,Â Royce ReedÂ andÂ Kesha Nichols.Â
But Shaunie is telling friends, despite the accusations, the cuts were NOT made by her. Sources close to Shaunie (who is also an executive producer onÂ the show)Â tell TMZ she was blindsided byÂ the news. We're told Shaunie says the production company leaves her in the dark about everything after she butted heads with them over the violent directionÂ the showÂ was headed (i.eÂ on-air brawlsÂ andÂ cat-fights).Â Â
I am honestly confused as to why Shaunie wouldÂ voiceÂ her opinion about axing anyone fromÂ the show,and then act surprised whenÂ castÂ members are fired. I think they were just acting on something she suggested. She should have just kept it real and been honest in the interviews. If she went to the extremes of even mentioning that if it were up to her she would give threeÂ basketballÂ wivesÂ the axe, she should have just named names, and then the media company would've known who to let go and who to keep. Â Â What do you think? Do you think Shaunie O'neal had no involvement with the firing ofJennifer Williams, Royce Reed, and Kesha Nichols?
