Is Basketball Wives worse than Love & Hip Hop?
Shauni O’Neal recently chatted about the upcoming season of the hit VH1 reality show. The mogul called people who trash her show but watch other bird-brained reality shows “contradictory.”
Via S2S Magazine:
“Those people that say that, I really don’t say anything to them to be honest. That’s their opinion. If you’re going to tell me you’re not going to watch “Basketball Wives,” but you tune into some of the other shows on the same network, it’s a little contradictory to me. If I were to try to convince somebody to watch, I would say that this season, there is growth. There is a whole lot of growth. There is some change in some people. Don’t look to see a bunch of Mother Theresas ‘cause that’s not happening, but you do see growth. I am very proud of season 5 of “Basketball Wives.” It’s growth and it is some change there. We’re not perfect, but we’re better.”
Shaunie confirms everyone on the show has “turned over a new leaf.”
“I don’t know that everybody’s turning over a new leaf. I think that’s been exaggerated a little bit. Like I said, there’s growth. I don’t think anyone on the cast has completely turned into someone new. I think there are surprises on who has grown some balls all of a sudden this season. There’s just growth. There’s a little regression in some moments, too, in some folks, but overall, there’s growth. There’s no one coming out brand new. I can’t say they’ve turned over a new leaf completely. It’s turning.”
People love ratchet reality shows because it’s like watching a train wreck. And everyone loves a good ole’ fashioned train wreck. Do you think BBW is worse than LHH, or are they the same unnecessary evil?
