‘Basketball Wives’ queen bee Shaunie O’Neal chatted it up about allowing viewers to finally see the true her, bumping heads with Tami Roman, Evelyn Lozada’s domestic abuse incident with Chad Johnson and more with Hello Beautiful.
Hello Beautiful: Last season you caught a lot of flack for the drama that happened, and this time around you said you were going to reveal the “real” you. What does that mean?
Shaunie O’ Neal: I just feel like, at this point, I probably just didn’t speak up enough. Previous seasons, I kind of sat back and was like whatever, ya know, I’m here and I’m doing my job. Evelyn and Tami have a such a strong personality that it’s very easy to sit back and just let them go and not really have much to say. I think everyone has something to say [about the show] regardless. If it’s too dramatic, they have something to say. If it’s not dramatic enough, they have something to say and I realize that.
After focusing on the dismantle of Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson’s marriage, ‘Basketball Wives’ is finally getting back to what it’s known for — borderline basic middle-aged women talking behind each other’s backs and the subsequent cat fights.
In the sneak peek of tonight’s episode, Tasha Marbury catches up with the former Mrs. Johnson to discuss Tami Roman jumping into her feelings over Shaunie O’Neal saying that their introductory meeting could go “really right or really wrong.”
With the new season of ‘Basketball Wives’ being filmed following the aftermath of the whole fiasco between Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson, it seems that the show’s title should have been changed to ‘Basketball Wives: We’re Gonna Talk About Chad And Evelyn Every Episode Because That’s The Only Storyline We Got’.
In the sneak peek of tonight’s episode, Ev speaks to her therapist about her past relationship with now ex-husband. Continue reading
Tami Roman dialed up Philly’s 107.9 Morning Show to set the record straight on her controversial advice to friend Evelyn Lozada towards the end of the ‘Basketball Wives’ Season 5 premiere episode on Monday night.
“Evelyn has openly admitted since we taped a year ago, that had the world not been involved, had nobody known what had happened she would have gone right back to Chad. So with her saying that, my advice then became, if that’s the relationship you want to keep and you feel like it’s worth saving — go to counseling.”
While out to dinner with the rest of the girls, Tami made the suggestion to Evelyn that if she believed her marriage to Chad Johnson was worth saving that she should “step out on faith” and give him a second chance.
Former ‘Basketball Wives’ star Jennifer Williams and boyfriend Cisco Rosado at the ‘Real Husbands of Hollywood’ and ‘Second Generation Wayans’ screening in New York City this week.
Jennifer’s new boo is the CEO of CMG Entertainment, an entertainment and booking company specializing in the urban entertainment market. So, if you are trying to book Tony Sunshine and Somaya Reece as surprise performers for a Quinceañera he’s the man to speak with.
The couple’s first meeting wasn’t exactly love at first sight. “I did a video for him, for one of his artists. It was one of his new artists, and Bobby Valentino was in the video. But we just met then and nothing happened,” explained Jennifer to Sister 2 Sister magazine publisher Jamie Foster Brown.
Who says everybody with permanently flared nostrils get along?
Instead of drifting away from all areas of social consciousness to be seen and heard while judging high school cheerleading competitions in South Carolina only, ‘Basketball Wives’ castaway Royce Reed took to her Twitter account to air out Shaunie O’Neal and Evelyn Lozada.
If you need me I’ll be making dirt angels with Chief Keef and the rest of the Coco Dorm.
