Shaunie Responds To Backlash Over Role In New ‘Basketball Wives’ Drama Between Evelyn & Jennifer — Video
There’s a lot to unpack were so get your cup ready for the Tea!

Can we all agree that the current batch of drama on Basketball Wives is really ridiculous?

The table-tossing isn’t even the biggest headliner. Unreal.

The season finale of Basketball Wives has the Internet riled up over a secret that Shaunie O’Neal kept for over a year. When Shaunie addressed Jennifer Williams’ lying about some disparaging remarks she made about Evelyn Lozada’s daughter, fans had a bone to pick.

Really, how is Shaunie staying mum any different than Tami doing the same about the “Evelyn slept with Shaunie’s ex” rumor? Hm.

You know, the rumor Jennifer Williams also started a year earlier in an attempt to hurt Evelyn before they made up last season.

These rumors were quickly denied as Lozada tried to make it seem like Tami had been grasping at straws and trying to find something negative to say about her.

Williams denied it before Tami provided some text messages to Shaunie that showed Jennifer was indeed responsible for spreading said rumor.

Even with that, Evelyn still mostly placed her blame at Tami and O’Neal was upset that this rumor was around for a year and no one said anything. 

So it was O’Neal’s apparent hypocrisy that led fans to lash out at her on social media
“Really Shaunie years ago!! I don’t give a [expletive]! what noooooooo! body wanna say I respect! Brandi ’cause she’s the only one that tell Shaunie about her hypocrite [expletive] self. Years Shaunie has been carrying news back and forth to these ladies and set more fire and they know and don’t say anything because she’s one of the producers on the show..when Evelyn say anything about Tami she laugh and go back and tell Tami and when Tami say stuff about eve she act like that’s not nice Tami don’t say that and then go tell eve, she is such a news carrier,” one ticked off viewer penned.

“@kyshakerr @dream_ofjeane she did, I was there remember. So you do realize we are filming a show with each other correct?” Shaunie replied. “As well as you realize you don’t get to see the entire hour-long conversations? You also do realize that while shooting the show we continue to talk about things that are going on amongst our group for the sake of you as an audience to understand. That’s kinda how it works in a nutshell love. Oh yeah, there’s so many things that you don’t see or hear but I’m sure you’re smart enough to know that right?” 


But are Tami and Shaunie still friends after all of the nonsense? Yup.

And when another fan seemed to question why O’Neal held out on sharing Jennifer’ diss until her co-star was accused of lying, Shaunie wrote: 

“@beautifully.melonie never would’ve told her if the issue of lying didn’t come up… for what? They were mad at each other said [ish], what purpose would it have served to run and tell her? They weren’t friends, weren’t around each other. No point!,” Shaunie explained to another inquirer. 

What do you think? Is Shaunie a hypocrite or should people not be painting the two situations with the same brush?

Be sure to watch the Basketball Wives reunion on VH1 Sunday night at 10/9c.
