Shaunie O’Neal Responds To ‘Basketball Wives’ Demotion Leak

Published: Sunday 8th Dec 2019 by David

Shaunie O’Neal is stepping up to defend herself against the ‘Basketball Wives‘ production insider who leaked information about the future of the show to the reputable blind items website ‘Crazy Days and Nights.’

The business woman’s response?

Wait and see.

Full story below…

The ‘Basketball Wives’ TV empire is owned by Viacom (home of VH1) and is powered by ratings/money generated by viewers.

So, when said viewers used social media to slam the conflict of interest the show presented by allowing O’Neal to stand as both star and producer there were fears the series would follow in the damned footsteps of ‘Basketball Wives Miami’.

On Friday, a story published by ‘Crazy Days and Nights’ startled the entrepreneur’s fans by sharing a story, said to have been delivered by VH1 insider, which revealed that the company had its ear to the digital streets and planned to rescue the series by draining the power out of production role so that they could steer it in a democratic direction.

The leak read…

She is going to have to give up that producer title (or at least all the power she had with the title) to stick around for another season. Shaquille O’Neal/Shaunie O’Neal “Basketball Wives”.



It seems, the alleged move was to be made to quietly to reprimand the Reality TV star for her mishandling of the show’s colorism and bullying scandal while protecting her from the backlash she would face if her detractors learned that she had become a “lame duck.”

a person in a position of authority in a company or organization whose power is reduced because theirtime in the job is about to end.


It didn’t help that OG Chijindu, who Shaunie is feuding with, is said to have been asked to return to the show for a third season. A clear sign, as far as some saw it, that Shaquille O’Neal’s ex-wife was no longer calling the shots.


Shaunie’s response?

It’s all a lie.

She told concerned fans…

Wait for the credits my love. #BeBlessed.

Unfortunately, some aren’t convinced….as they believe the leak holds weight because of the platform it emerged on and because it anticipated her denial by adding..

She is going to have to give up that producer title (or at least all the power she had with the title) to stick around for another season.


Will OG’s return to the series prove that O’Neal has been demoted by her VH1 bosses?

    It’s a vanity title Mariah huq already broke this down on m2m she came up with the concept of the show she shopped it bravo took it she had a hand in casting FIRST SEASON!!!! That is all

  2. Trendy Wendy December 8, 2019

    Two words. Vanity title. Whoever leaked the story really did a number on her by adding that extra highlighted part. They knew she’d lie.

  3. Tony December 8, 2019

    • Pnswins December 8, 2019

      I agree

    • Ughhh December 8, 2019

      Did Evelyn lie though when she alluded to OG looking like an ape… regardless of racism… she does have ape-like features

      • Zozo January 29, 2020

        youre a moron how do you compare people to animal. you just like evilina

    • Carolyn December 8, 2019

      I agree, go look at something else. #BBW #bossbitch #thatsmsshaunie

  4. SNF December 8, 2019

    What demographic watches this show? This s**t is stupid

  5. TIGER E December 8, 2019

    I think OG was not innocent in any of the drama
    She had a real messed up altitude and everyone can criticize the other ladies but I hope she isnt returning and thats just my opinion. Idk about all the colorism but she had a big ass chip on her shoulder and her attitude was shitty a lot of the times. I hope the other ladies return.

    • Danny Bey December 8, 2019

      THANK YOU!!!!! I don’t condone everything the other ladies did but I wasn’t on the OG bandwagon either. A lot of her approach and arguments were reaches but people loved the narrative and ran with it with this whole “colorism/bullying” thing. I saw right thru that sh*t.

    • Pnswins December 8, 2019

      Yes! I do not care to see OG back On the show at all

    • Haterealitytv December 8, 2019

      None of the women were innocent. But wow. People like Shaunie truly now how to pick & choose their battle. Shaunie, Evel-lin, Malaysia & etc. got what they put out & then couldn’t handle it. They all admitted that they took a lost. “A lost”, coming from grown women. A lost is equivalent to President Donald Trump. I was always team Shaunie. Until I saw her true colors…

  6. Karen December 8, 2019

    Shauni should retain her status all around and OG should be made to leave.

  7. Denise Brown December 8, 2019

    I think Shaunie should be demoted I stopped watching after I saw how OG and CeCe were being treated how she let Evelyn,Feby and Kristen bully them and she laughed and thought it was okay but when OG stood up to them she said she was a threat to them,Tami was supposed to be her friend and she turned on her for Evelyn, I think the show should get rid of Shaunie, Evelyn, Malaysia,Feby and Kristen

  8. Happy Camper December 8, 2019

    That trash Shaunie needs to get taken down a few notches. To use her position to intimidate and lie about other cast members would have her worthless self sued in the real world.

  9. Amy Rutigliano December 8, 2019

    I can’t stand OG I think see is a bully and a mean person and i hope she doesn’t come back to the show and I don’t think there was a race issue or a bully issue I agree with Evelyn and shaunie

    • jacqueline thomas December 8, 2019

      right….and she. look like she was supposed to be a man

  10. Eden December 8, 2019

    OG, is not a good fit for Basketball Ball Wives. (My Observation). It appears she has underlying colorism issues with women of lighter hue, ( threaten by what she believes is Beautiful) and needs to seek counseling. If, it wasn’t so, she would be her natural self, and wouldn’t n’t try so hard to look like them. Remove the Blondes Wigs/Straight Hair. Stop the Foolery! IJS

  11. Stephtacular December 8, 2019

    I Really like and respect O.G. I believe part of the reason they seperated her at the reunion is so they could attack CeCe without being checked. Kudos to CeCe for not falling into that trap. OG’s interview just enhanced my admiration for her.

  12. Money December 8, 2019

    Sad that envy and overall disrespect is still alive and well, do easily pitted against each other for corporate gain. Having two sides to every story is good for ratings. Why can’t both sides stand for themselves. Mean girls to sociopath is not a good look for anyone especially black women. Bias is everywhere that does not mean that everything is going to be either or, at what point do we display our strength by working together even if we disagree to make some of the bags made off of US. YOU can disagree without being disrespectful and damaging to each other!

  13. High Price December 8, 2019

    Ugh… why even give this colorist the light to shine. She’s nobody but a ballers baby momma who invested the money she reaped from his name. I can’t stand her! No substance at all!

  14. Nydria L Jones December 8, 2019

    Well ppl are to damn invested on this show…Og was f***** messy..just like jackie but it’s a tv show yall m*********** are crazy.. wats yur real life hitting for

  15. jacqueline thomas December 8, 2019

    she has Shaq back… do she give a damn if that show make it anymore?

  16. Nevertheless December 8, 2019

    Shaunie never said OG couldn’t return to the show, so if she comes back doesn’t mean s***, also basketball wives is a good show so if Shaunie and Evelyn goes the show wouldn’t last at all….people are such haters

  17. Flora Nicasio December 8, 2019

    If it’s TRUE the cherry on top would be to bring Brandys badass back to the show…🤩😂😁😍👍

  18. Pamela December 8, 2019

    Damn Queens, we want to be the ones in charge..Now theres going to be a bunch of white people telling black people how to act and portraying us as ghetto and ignorant. We are supposed to uplift each other. More African Americans in charge create more opportunities for others.Seems to me y’all are the mean girls.smh

  19. Cc December 8, 2019

  21. Pulling tane December 8, 2019

    Everybody jealous because shaunie is smart and liked by everyone OG just look like a man

    • Angie Jones December 9, 2019

      Girl you are trippin.

  22. K. Shandell December 8, 2019

    Soooo y’all obviously were watching a totally different show because BBWLA wasn’t it. They talked about OG from the start. About her hair and the way she dresses. It was Malaysia and Shaunie I believe but for sure about one the people being Malaysia. If someone is constantly talking about me behind my back then yes my attitude towards them is going to change. They never gave that girl a chance period.

  23. NC December 8, 2019

    I think there is a lot of favoritism on this show. I feel like the producer should be someone who is not a basketball wives in the show so people can freely speak their mind without backfire. I love OG, she is not afraid to speak her mind and does not tolerate anyone BS. If she is fired from the show, it would be because she voice her honest opinion and some people cannot take heat

  24. Bernice M Rickett December 9, 2019

    No she doesn’t look like an ape

  25. kj December 9, 2019

    Yall complain about Shaunie but, you still watch! Sthu!

  26. Lee December 9, 2019

    I admire OG’s intelligence. Very impressed with how she expresses her self. However I feel She may Be one that has “Colorism” issues. There are other brown beauties on BW & I dont Hear them complaining🤷🏽‍♀️

  27. April December 9, 2019

    I love all the ladies on BBW, with the exception of Jen. But if I have to choose it would be OG all day. Only because she stands up for herself and she is telling the truth about how she gets treated unfairly for doing the exact same thing that everyone else on the show does. I don’t know if I agree with the “why” she gets treated because I don’t like to assume, but anyone who isn’t lying to themselves can see that they complain about what OG says and does when they themselves have done the same, and continue to do so. If they don’t like you and they see you’re strong and can’t bully you, you become a threat to them. Especially when you do to them what they do to you. It’s pure B.S.

  28. Robin Allen December 9, 2019

    Well if they change O’Neal and she not on BBW then I won’t be wanting it anymore

  29. Sabrina December 9, 2019

    Shaunie should hav left that ugly b**** off the show bullying nall thats was tammy job she ran all previous ppl off that were timid she was the bully old faced asss but if shaunie leave we all leaving make it the ugly show

  30. Pam December 9, 2019

    I think that all y’all is doing to much… this is a tv show and ya’ll act like ya’ll know these people personally… wow get a life. . OG is a s*** starter and a bully… she’s the one who needs to go..ppl just don’t wanna she other people make it… serious ya’ll if you don’t like what goes on, on the show!! Stop watching it that will solve your problems..

  31. Janet December 9, 2019

    Shaunie was warned several years ago to not do these Reality TV show if she wanted to be a Business Women BUT NO she took her ass and did just what she said she would not do. So whatever mess she finds herself in dealing with the Housewives she deserves. Shaunie don’t think you are better then the other women on the show when you get good advice TAKE IT!

  32. James Jackson December 9, 2019

    Shaunie, acted like a clueless fo when it came to issues of bullying. You (Shaunie), is so far up Evelyn’s a**, she couldnt see the light. I really once like Evelyn a lot but that b**** is a real bully. In it messes with me that Shaunie aloud that to go on.

  33. James Jackson December 9, 2019

    Shaunie was a so far up Evelyn’s a** she could not see the light of the bullying. Evenly should be kicked in the a** as well as kicked off the show. I once liked Evelyn but she turned into a real bully.

  34. Lucky December 9, 2019

    I believe Shaunie is a bully, always threatening folks that don’t agree with her..I thought Evelyn had grown up, but of course a tiger never loses their stripes. She always trying to fight somebody, except OG!! Because OG would’ve busted that ass. That’s why they were scared to be on the same reunion set. Shaunie you got a nice family, loads of money focus your negative energy into uplifting ladies vs. tearing down those who won’t kiss your behind!!

  35. DENEEN WILLIAMS December 9, 2019

    I’m glad because she is a mean girl ! You can’t go around think that you are better than anyone and misstrat them. God doesn’t like ugly. It will come back 7fold.. she was so dirty this year ! My question is will she come back? Maybe because she has a contract and then Cece ,and the good girls will beat her up

  36. Lex December 10, 2019

    It will be good for Shaunie to finally get what she deserve. It was a huge mistake giving her that “executive” title in the first place.

  37. Tanya December 10, 2019

    KARMA IS A B**** HUH LASHONDRA O’NEAL😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  38. Pam Mitch December 18, 2019

    I think she should be removed. The way she treated OG was terrible. She supported Evenly in the whole situation. She knew Rvenly posted that monkey to mark OG and the comment she stated about believing what Evenly said it wasn’t about OG that was a lie. We all know she was making fun of OG. Then they had the nerves to put OG by herself during the reunion because through she a treat to the other case members was crazy. Evenly is the danger one and she should have been remove too. REMOVE HER!!!!
