VH1 Promises Less Assaults on “Basketball Wives”

As many have noticed lately, the drama behind VH1’s "Basketball Wives" has left the cameras and focused on the audience who is fed up with the constant women-on-women  brawl-style fighting. After several complaints, lost advertising dollars, and a petition, the network is now promising that the violence will lessen… next season.

From VH1: Lately, there has been a lot of conversation about Basketball Wives, a series featuring strong, intelligent women with very passionate viewpoints which can sometimes escalate. We at VH1 agree with and support Shaunie and the show producers’ ‘no excessive physical confrontations’ policy on the series moving forward. We are all committed to balancing the candid, bold excitement that the viewers have come to love in the series with storylines and representations they can be proud of. Shaunie has been a strong advocate for a more balanced approach to the show and we, along with our producing partners at Shed Media, are all in agreement about moving forward with that goal.

On the reunion show, taped last weekend, it’s said that Shaunie restated her sentiments and even suggested she’s felt this way all along. We'll believe it when we see it.
