Next Monday, May 30, is the premiere of the third season of VH1′s smash hit reality series Basketball Wives, and judging from the supertrailer, there is a load of drama in store this season. To give us some insight as to what to expect from the drama-filled new season, the show’s producer and star, Shaunie O’Neal recently spoke with us about her feelings towards Royce Reed, whether Gloria Govan would be returning and her thoughts on the show receiving backlash from the public.
On Her Feelings Towards Royce
“We’ve got a lot in store for you. There has been some changes to the cast and some familiar faces. Royce is back. But truthfully I don’t really deal with her this season. After her behavior at the reunion show, I realized she wasn’t someone I wanted to give my time to.”
“I think the rest of the girls and I have realized that Royce is the type of woman that constantly has to have some sort of drama going on, so we’ve come to expect it. She’s involved in some drama now, with Jen over the leaking of Royce’s pictures. So I try not to deal with her.”
On Meeka Claxton (Wife of Speedy Claxton) Joining the Cast
“Meeka was very persistent. She reached out to us regularly, emailing her credentials, pictures, really letting us know why she belonged on the show.”[...]Well she’s already found some drama. I can’t give too much away but let’s just say, she had to learn the hard way.”
On the Show Receiving Backlash
“It is what it is. I don’t know the answer everyone is looking for. Some woman, somewhere all over the world, is like each one of these women. It may not be you, but its someone you know.The drama, the fights, that’s real. That’s not something I’m responsible for. I wish all TV had a constant message, but it doesn’t. Our show is just another slice of reality.”
On Whether Gloria Would Be Returning
“Gloria is actually going to be apart of another show I’m doing
Although Shaunie was tight lipped about the mystery show, she did reveal that instead of coming to Miami to film Basketball Wives 3, Gloria stayed in LA to film the new show. Laker Wives? Just kid…
Which just tells me that the so called "beef" with Gloria was just some BS for the cameras. I wont be watching. And Speedy Claxton's wife is an idiot. #team whats her name from the real world
Meeka Claxton was thirsty to get on the show? lol Silly silly silly..
I don't think Royce is all about drama, I just think she's young acting and needs to grow up. i do apperciate her honesty, tho. She stopped holding her tongue for those hoes.
I've been over Shaunie. Now she loves the drama but pretends to be so over it. She's a two faced and plays both sides. I don't see how any of them could be friends with her.
um...what is a speedy clayton?
I couldnt be bothered with Royce either.........***smh & turning up my nose** That b***h would make my azzhole ache
