Season 2 of “Basketball Wives” only went off the air a few weeks ago and Shaunie O’Neal is already drumming up interest for season 3, which began taping last week.
Shaunie was a guest on BlogTalkRadio’s “Muthaknows” show earlier this week and she revealed that while rumors that she and her staff have been talking to Kenyon Martin’s longtime boo Trina about joining the show are false, they’d love to have her. Shaunie also said they are still in the process of casting new ladies since Suzy and Gloria are down for the count and not coming back for a third season and Royce’s status on the show is up in the air since that gag order keeps her from reminding folks “who she got” and none of the other b*tches like her anyway…
Shaunie also said she’s watched casting tape of Tanya Williams and finds it really “interesting.”
Williams is currently in the process of a divorce from her batsh*t crazy ex-baller Jayson Williams who is known for murking his limo driver and playing with his piece in a car full of other men. Jayson is currently serving time for the “aggravated assault” of the poor dead driver along with a DWI charge.
Now that’s drama for your mama.
Shaunie also says that as of this week Evelyn will be coming back to the next season but producers are still working out the financial end. She claims she has no say in the pay. Also, regardless of what Shaunie says any of these hoes could end up back on the show at any time because Vh1 signed all of these broads to five season contracts. So There.
As for her role in the drama with Tami and Evelyn, Shaunie blames Ev for telling secrets while the cameras are rolling and says if it was up to her the show would be like “Little House on the Prairie,” but fortunately the editing is in other folks hands. She also says Shaq watches the show and finds it entertaining but she isn’t allowed to laugh at any jokes about Hoopz being an STD factory or she’ll get in trouble.
