Shaunie O’Neal Takes On Vegas, Distances Herself From BBall Wives Drama

Shaunie O’Neal hit up Planet Hollywood in Vegas over the weekend in a pink sequin Backstage dress and Giuseppe Zanotti heels to host an Evening At Gallery Nightclub.

  She arrived to the party without the ‘Basketball Wives’ castmates, which is a good thing considering it seems as though she’s distancing herself from the drama of the show.  The ladies’ behavior this season has taken ‘mean girls’ to a whole new level, resulting in bottle-throwing, smack downs and lawsuits.
After all of the drama revolving around the last few episodes started really boiling over off screen and Jennifer Williams filed a lawsuit,  Shaunie O’Neal released a statement to Vibe :

“I’m extremely happy that Basketball Wives continues to have another successful fourth season. As the ratings have been through the roof since our season opener, fans continue to tune into the lives of Evelyn, Tami, Jennifer, Royce, Suzie  and myself. As there is always controversy and indifference projected on the show, because we are all individual personalities, I always hope that people will find that as much as you may agree or disagree with the opinions, the behavior, [and] even our different taste in shoes, you are taking a look inside the lives of four complete different women. I will never say I agree with some of the behavior between my girlfriends on the show, but if we were to edit certain things out the show would be scripted and not reality.

As a woman of color with kids, I am very aware of myself, but I also have to be aware that my choices cannot be the same for everyone on the show and I have to respect that. I hope the fans feel they see a balance and know we have always been real with our stories, even though it may not always be a positive portrayal of adult women but real women nonetheless. I look forward to developing other media platforms in the future and hope that fans will continue to support.”
