New Report Claims Shaunie O'Neal May Lose Producer Credit For Basketball Wives!

New Report Claims Shaunie O'Neal May Lose Producer Credit For Basketball Wives!
Credit: Source: Ebony

Shaunie O'Neal has been at the head of the Basketball Wives executive producer table since the show was introduced. After one of the most controversial seasons ever, the mom may be getting demoted by the network according to a new report.

Fans and cast members alike have always had a split opinion about Shaunie being both an executive producer on the show and a star. Some feel that if a star isn't liked by Shaq's ex-wife, then they have to live in constant fear of losing their job.

During the last installment, O'Neal was accused of playing favorites with Evelyn Lozada and Malaysia Pargo in addition to being called out for colorism.

OG Chijundu felt that she was discriminated against and vilified because she was punished for getting verbally and nearly physically violent with multiple castmates. Viewers have brought up the fact that Malaysia and Evelyn have come to blows with co-stars season after season and have not been given the same treatment.

That Grape Juice recently reported that a source is claiming VH1 wants to take Shaunie out of her EP position.


'Decision time for this former wife of a permanent A+ list athlete turned nonstop spokesperson for any company that will write a check. The former wife is now a reality star but also a producer. 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.'

To add insult to injury, the businesswoman is facing a lot of heat after an Instagram Live went viral where she allegedly said that fans were 'too invested' in the reality show.

This caused multiple viewers to tweet that they will no longer be tuning into the series.


'Shaunie went on live and said fans are too invested in this show as a rebuttal to Evelyn’s behavior so I’ll invest my time elsewhere and let those ratings drop,' said one fan.

'It was incredibly dumb of shaunie to get on live and tell viewers that they are too invested in # basketballwives . Without invested viewers there is no show, you clown. Suddenly we're "too invested" because no one is siding with her and miss ancestry DNA, evilyn,' added another.

Do you think Shaunie should be out as an EP?

    Yea Shaunie should go. Before she made the comment about audience being "too invested," her response to the audiences' comment that nobody on the show is actually a basketball wife was "get over it." Ungrateful.

    Reading comments, and I must say they are entertaining. However, some of the viewers are not clear on things that happen which they are not knowledgeable about. I love the show! Period! Shaunie has the right to not with whom ever she sees fit to not deal with. Some people just do fsht, and cause people not to deal with them. Everybody is not going to kiss butt, or allow certain behavior! Further more, OG was very annoying. Someone should have advised her of what a MESS she looked like with that wack makeup, toe protruding out her shoes, among other things. Evelyn, I like. I think at times she should not react as she has to certain situations, but we all have acted a way that someone else disapproved of. The comment that was made about viewers being too invested, was not made to be disrespectful. She was just stating that people are taking "reality tv" to personal. Also, when you go to work and disrespect your boss, you either get a write-up, or dismissed. This is no different.

    I’m soooo glad cause shaunie don’t need to have credit position anyway!,In the past, shaunie would fire a girl if she didn’t like them like brandy, the girl that was a d.jay,remember?Yeah having executive director priveledges was causing shaunie to do some rotten things to people.

    Shaunie, Some people like mess. That's a givin. You need to fix this. What happened to the positive spin. Let us see what these women are invested in. We don't need to see back bitting and cruelty among you. Light skin versus dark skin. That's just too Jim Crow like. Its offensive.

      Get rid of her as EP. She's acting like this because of het position. We've all seen Evelyn bullying cast members. She met her match w OG. I really like OG. Demote Ms. Shaunie asap. I won't watch another season w this EP still in charge. Its not right or fair to the other cast members.

    I'm with Shaunie. Get a life always taking tv too serious. It's entertainment. Always want to take someone's bag for nothing. Get secure within your skin & you won't need validation from her or anyone else. People make mistakes even in friendships. Maybe she needed to stir the pot. All of them need some new story lines. I need the old crew back. This shit lame. Shaunie fix old friendships. Not interested in these crybabies.

    This show is disgusting!!! It portrays women in a very poor light. All they seem to do is talk about other women behind their backs. Can’t they just keep their mouths shut and stop causing trouble. These women are not youngsters eg Jackie and Tami but they are the biggest sh-stirrers! Basket ball Wives?????? Seriously???? Only Jackie is married to a BB players, the other women are all has-been! Some have not even been married to a BB star!! What a farce this show is. Most of the women have no class - just maybe some money. As Luanne from RHONY sang “Money Can’t Buy You Class” - this should be the lead song and introduction music for Basketball Wives. Their language is really bad and not a good role model for any young girl watching! THUS SHOW SHOULD BE CANCELLED!

    Shaunie O'Neal is a boss. I'm sure this move won't bother her purse. But I will tell you this. If Shaunie O'Neal is not on the show. Your rating are going to drop. Me and alot of others will not watch this show anymore. Trust and believe.

    They should of demoted her a long time ago. Her judgement is clouded. She should of never been able to be a cast member period. Its a conflict of interest. She is letting evelyn destroy the show. Bottom line anyone who is not up her and evelyn ass they cant stay on the show then Shaunie is soooo far up evelyn ass she thought her friendship with Evelyn was bigger then show. keep in mind evelyn used the hell out of shaunie. the majority of the viewers spoke and evelyn is not as likable as shaunie thinks. Evelyn is a racist. The nerve of shaunie to say viewers were too invested because people were getting tired of evelyn being a bully. I hope they bring back brandie now. The show will be better without shaunie she didnt bring sht to the show anyways. OG came on the show and wasnt going to kiss their a**es. Shaunie was trying to get rid of her but look who is going boo bye. Viacom let her know who the real boss is. Lets see how long Evelyn keeps in touch with her now. Dumb let Evelyn's gold digging drag her down like she did chad and her fiancee she left after he was broke; add shaunie to the list of people evelyn used up and left.

    After the way she treated OG and then went on to basically try to convince people that Evelyn and that other hot mess were saints and did no wrong, I feel she should be demoted!!! She has lost her ability to produce a show that was once a fun show to watch into a show filled with colorism, hate, women tearing each other down, vile language and fighting in almost every scene. What was she thinkng? She cannot separate her personal feelings and friendships long enough to produce a show we all used to enjoy. With this being said Please Get rid of Shaunie or at the least demote her and bring back the real show!!
