Laura Govan Says Shaunie O’Neal Ruined Basketball Wives With Casting Choices
According to TMZ reports:
“Basketball Wives” should only feature the WIVES of basketball players … and NOT random “hos” … so says former cast member Laura Govan who says the recent crop of women are ruining the reality show.
Govan — who was axed from the show after Season 2 — tells us she’s got a serious beef with show creator Shaunie O’Neal … explaining, “I feel like she didn’t keep [the show] in the basketball creed.”
“She shoulda kept ‘Basketball Wives,’ basketball wives” … adding, “There coulda been a ‘Housewives or a Ho’ show for everybody else later.”
Clearly, Laura is talking about cast members like Draya Michele (ex-GF of football player Orlando Scandrick) and Sunday Carter (who reportedly had a daughter with married ex-NBA star Larry Hughes.)
FYI — Laura doesn’t exactly fit the mold herself … ’cause she ain’t a basketball “wife” either — even though she’s been engaged to Gilbert Arenas off and on for years.
Pot, this is kettle, y’all have a lot in common…
