'Basketball Wives' season finale: Shaunie O'Neal shuts fans down about Jennifer Williams drama
Fans came at Shaunie for being 'hypocritical' and keeping Jennier's remarks about Evelyn Lozada's daughter a secret for a while.
Trust Shaunie ONeal to know exactly how to shut her harsh critics down! The season finale of “Basketball Wives” resulted in the show's fans getting pretty heated over a couple of secrets Shaunie had been keeping for a year now. So when she addressed Jennifer Williams’ lying about some not-so-tasteful remarks she had made about Evelyn Lozada’s daughter, fans got riled up and came at her. Most of them brought up Shaunie's own heated reaction to finding out about Tami Roman having kept secrets from her, stating how she could keep Jennifer's secret when she herself had felt so strongly about the topic.
Tami's secret in discussion here is the fact that she new Evelyn had slept with Shaunie's ex for over a year but had uttered not a single word about it to her. Shaunie was devastated and heated upon finding out, which is why fans think it's quite hypocritical for the BBW executive producer to have kept Jennifer's secret.
“Really Shaunie years ago!! I don’t give a f—! what noooooooo! body wanna say I respect! Brandi ’cause she’s the only one that tell Shaunie about her hypocrite ass 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," wrote a fan on Instagram.
“@undeniably_passionate I said the same that’s why I stopped watching," another one chimed in saying. And this is when Shaunie herself stepped in.
“@kyshakerr @dream_ofjeane she did, I was there remember," she wrote back in the comment's reply. "So you do realize we are filming a show with each other correct? 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?”
Fans also took to the post to ask Shaunie is she and Tami were still friends, despite the rampant rumour. And nailing the coffin, she answered in the positive. But when they asked her why she kept Jennifer's diss to herself until the point she was accused of lying, Shaunie sort of doubled down. “@beautifully.melonie never would’ve told her if the issue of lying didn’t come up… for what?" she wrote back, defending herself. "They were mad at each other said shit, what purpose would it have served to run and tell her? They weren’t friends, weren’t around each other. No point!”
