Shaunie O’Neal is urging fans of her series ‘Basketball Wives’ not to invest too much time or energy in the series….as portions of it are edited to deceive them.
Full story below…
The successful entrepreneur is an executive-producer on the show, and has faced fire from viewers in recent weeks following her supposed mistreatment of co-star OG Chijindu and refusal to use her powers as an EP to stop the bullying the Nigerian athlete is facing on the series.
Bullying, said to be coordinated by Evelyn Lozada.
#EvelynLozada is a bully. 😢

O’Neal recently used Instagram’s Live feature to reach out to her audience and urge them not to allow the on-screen drama to affect their day to day lives. Why? Her belief that her employers at VH1 use editing to make things seems far worse than they are actually are.
Watch her explanation below…
Don’t get so invested. I sometimes think people don’t understand how Reality TV works. We have a whole lot of filming and it gets condensed down to highlights.
Then, after spotting a comment from a fan who “credited” VH1 for editing these highlights, the producer revealed that some of the show’s scenes are out of order.
They do have a great editing. I even watch-when I get some of the edits- and say damn that was good….I don’t remember that happening in that order…but the way you did it…you made it real good.
She insists, however, that the series is not fake.
It’s not fake because it’s really happening. It’s just that sometimes you miss the middle because there’s just too much footage. It’s not fake…it’s just…edited.
Shaunie was once married to Shaquille O’Neal and is said to have a net worth of $35 million.
