Basketball Wives creator and executive producer Shaunie O’Neal has proved she has no problem handing out pink slips to difficult cast members, which is why some fans of the series believe she’s already fired Jennifer Williams, whom O’Neal and others dismissed as a habitual liar during last week’s season finale.
According to The Jasmine Brand, O’Neal has yet to officially fire Williams. In fact, she has yet to address next season’s cast whatsoever. Reports that Williams was let go increased after she slammed O’Neal during her recent interview with The Breakfast Club.
“She starts a lot of bullsh*t behind the scenes. … It’s really interesting that Shaunie has selective memory. She couldn’t seem to remember if Tami had said those things, which had happened. … She never wants to be in the middle of everything.”
Williams also denies O’Neal and Malaysia Pargo’s accusations that she spoke negatively about Evelyn Lozada’s daughter, Shaniece.
“If I allegedly said this five years ago and this is your girl, why are you just now bringing this up?”
