"Basketball Wives" Star Shaunie O'Neal ADMITS To Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman Being BULLIES!

"Executive Producer" Shaunie O'Neal is speaking out about what's been happening on "Basketball Wives" lately and she admits that some of the ladies on the show can be "bullies." Shocker. More details below.......


During a chat with Hip Hollywood, Shaunie O'Neal confirmed what we already know....Evelyn Lozada is a bully. But instead of simply throwing Evelyn under the bus, Shaunie cleaned it up adding that Evelyn is such a "strong" personality that when she is put up against someone like Jennifer, she could seem a bit overwhelming.

As for Tami Roman, Shaunie compared her to Evelyn and said she is a sweetheart. But she added that you might not want to cross her.

But what she left out was if she thinks bullies have the right to lay hands on others.

Shaunie is going to have to come a little better than that as I'm sure Star Jones and the rest of the ladies gearing up for a boycott aren't going to buy into the whole "strong personality" thing.

At this point, it simply looks like Shaunie is trying to save face and protect her brand. We all know she doesn't have anyreal creative control over what the show airs, yet she still continues to defend what is broadcast. She released a statement recently saying,

"I'm extremely happy that Basketball Wives continues to have another successful fourth season. As the ratings have been through the roof since our season opener, fans continue to tune into the lives of Evelyn, Tami, Jennifer, Royce, Suzie and myself. As there is always controversy and indifference projected on the show, because we are all individual personalities, I always hope that people will find that as much as you may agree or disagree with the opinions, the behavior, [and] even our different taste in shoes, you are taking a look inside the lives of four complete different women. I will never say I agree with some of the behavior between my girlfriends on the show, but if we were to edit certain things out the show would be scripted and not reality.

As a woman of color with kids, I am very aware of myself, but I also have to be aware that my choices cannot be the same for everyone on the show and I have to respect that. I hope the fans feel they see a balance and know we have always been real with our stories, even though it may not always be a positive portrayal of adult women but real women nonetheless. I look forward to developing other media platforms in the future and hope that fans will continue to support."

  1. Shaunie is a snake, slithering all the way to the bank thanks to these chicks. Tami & Evelyn are both bullies: add to the equation that Tami is NOT attractive & Evelyn is also an official NBA and NFL slore...Suzie is a PROUD gossip with her annoying lisp and corny self...Jen is trying to come off classy when in-fact she's a snake and a punk herself. Cuz she giggled when other ppl got hit & insulted on the show--until it happened to her. Royce & the other girls are just pawns for the mean-girls to take advantage of. Its ridiculous.

  4. I support a full boycott of this show and any others that are demeaning the image of black women in particular. I didn't even click play to the video because I could care less what Shaunie has to say.

  6. Shaunie O'Neal PLEASE SHUT UP! You "THINK" Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman Are BULLIES but you're given Evelyn her own show and you STILL employ BOTH. Shaunie is the BIGGEST disgrace of all because she's so dishonest about it. This Women LOVES the Fights. Not only does she love the FIGHTS she sets them up because she knows it will get her HIGHER rating and BIGGER checks. Shaunie is no better than Tyler Perry or other EXPLOITERS of the Black community. This woman does not care how WOMEN look on her show as long as the MONEY is right. I'm just happy for women like STAR JONES. Star is educated and smart and understand that showing such negativity has a result. ALL Shanuie cares about is the FACT that The mud-slinging makes for watchable TV, but it also highlights an unsettling new formula for the reality-TV genre: put two or more headstrong African-American women in the same room, and let the fireworks begin. From Oxygen’s Bad Girls to Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise, the small screen is awash with black females who roll their eyes, bob their heads, snap their fingers, talk trash, and otherwise reinforce the ugly stereotype of the “angry black woman.” Take VH1’s Basketball Wives and Love & Hip Hop, which feature the scorned ex-wives and baby mamas of rich NBA stars and rappers. No episode is complete without a bitchy confrontation or a threat to do bodily harm. Shaunie you're been EXPOSED and nobody buys your LIES! You knew they were BULLIES and you LOVED that about them!

  8. There is nothing Shaunie can ever say to me. Any black woman that willfully exploits us then way she has done is nothing more than garbage to our community. She is not different than the whites that's willing to do it.

  10. Why is it anybody business if these birds want to act like animals on tv? This has zero to do with color and everything to do with character. Evelyn is not even black so WTF is the issue again? I don't need women on tv to speak for meas a black woman, I prove my worth everyday by being educated, well-rounded and a good example for my OWN child. These women aren't on tv trying to be inspirations so I don't get it. Star Jones should mind her damn business and worry about her own image.

  11. Evelyn is awesome entertainment and i don't want her to go anywhere in fact i want her to punch and bitch slap Shaunie right in the nose maybe that will flatten her nose out cause her nose needs it.

  12. Shaunie needs to stop justifying ignorant behavior. It's funny how she always sides Tami and Evelyn as if they do no wrong. Jennifer should be off her too. www.divasinspire.com Check out the web show to see how they Divas feel about these women.

  13. when is Shaunie gonna get hit or slap, since she is ok with it. i watch, but it definitely isn't good anymore. i saw Tami & Evelyn picking at Nia for having on shades while slapping Jennifer. Royce at least tries to have fun. Tami, Shaunie & Evelyn just sit around & talk about Jenn and instigate Evelyn into acting stupid. Asking Evelyn if Jennifer could go on the trip when Shaunie or the show is paying for it. i hope Kenya & Royce get w/Jenn and torture Evelyn on the trip. i know there has to be something better than can be put on tv. i definitely signed the petition to have Evelyn show stop and sent the petition to everyone i know. BBW is already on, but we need to stop a bully from being rewarded for bullying and taunting people. their show is gonna be terrible anyway, cause Chad was so boring on his dating show, i only saw one episode of that mess.

  17. U laid it low and spread it wide...mama braxtonFriday, April 27, 2012

    Most African American women do not behave this way. Still, if the networks were not aware that there were impressionable minds watching, the shows would air without commercials. Of course they do air with commercials because they know people with impressionable minds are indeed watching. I'm not against reality tv. I enjoy some reality shows just like everyone else, but this one in particular has taken a dark and violent turn. If we watch the shows that depict the "real" lives of the white women, there is a subtle difference. They are shown as carefree, free-spirited party girls who we watch evolve into mature, responsible, married business women. That is not the case with this show. Television is medium that has been used for generations to influence popular culture. Knowing this, is it not at least somewhat bothersome that most of the reality programs that depict African American and Latina women reflect them to be violent, shallow, self-absorbed, gold-diggers? We deserve better. http://www.change.org/petitions/cancel-basketball-wives

  22. Shanie i think you should find a way to turn this whole neg show into a positive one by getting some new girls and all of you just need to act like women who are trying to do positives with your life with a little bit of drama. You guys need to learn how to wip ass with words but in a classy way. This show is about women jealous of each other and everybody wants to out shine the next. Have each others back and fight verbally with the bitches at the club or add some groopies on there who have slept with your husbands but want to make things right in their life. Whatever you do please stop what goes on.

  30. Now we see why Shaunie and Tami are friends. She is just as crazy as Tami. By the way Tami needs that show she is being sued and has been sued so she is probably financially in the hole. A extensions company is suing her and Meeka Claxton sued her for putting her hands on her in Season 3 so if you notice she talks plenty of crap but does not get up to put her hands on anyone. She is riding on last years rep of being a thug and this years of being a big, vulgar mouth.

    This move by Shaunie is just to try to distance herself from being seen as ratchet by the community. Everybody knows she isn't about anything but money. Tyra Banks had plenty of altercations on her show but she handled the situations fast and she is a younger women, plus she was probably getting in more "raw" material to deal with since they were young.

    These are old fools and most aren't wives because they aren't marriage material. Tami had an abortion while on camera, coupled with her mental problem and the fact she couldn't get child support out of a working brotha, says it all.

    Ev is scandalous, really cruisin social networks for athletes to hustle? No shame in her game plus talking about how many have already "run through" she has no self worth. But she can do what she likes, she isn't black, put a sticker on her "Latina" and let her own community claim and school her.

  32. I’m calling BULLSHIT on this one! Why isn’t their a boycott on Bad Girls Club or Mob Wives?! Hell, even Bridezillas cause some of them broads be off the hook too! How many times have they fought on Real World? The list goes on and on.

    You know what the REAL is, it’s because it’s a SUCCESSFUL BLACK show! We always catching heat for doing some sh*t EVERYONE ELSE does too!

    Boycott that bullsh*t they play on the radio! Go boycott education funding being cut! Boycott Homelessness! Go boycott WSHH who always showing everyday people fighting like dogs in the streets!

    Now Star Jones’ “I Lost Weight By Dieting” lying ass wants to jump on the bandwagon. Gone somewhere! This makes me so mad when people want to tear down the most POPULAR instead of the most DESTRUCTIVE.
