Shaunie O’Neal Says Critics Go Harder On BBWLA Because Of Race

Do people criticize shows like BBW because the casts are predominately Black?

Basketball Wives creator Shaunie O’Neal recently sat down with The Undefeated about the reality show’s scrutiny. Shaunie points out that the only difference between her show and shows like Real Housewives of New York is skin color…

“They’re a little harder on us, for whatever reason … but there’s nothing going on in Basketball Wives that isn’t going on with Real Housewives of New York. Hell, most of the time I think we’re a lot tamer,” she said, laughing. “And sometimes, honestly I agree [with the critics]. It’s not a proud moment for me [when we’re fighting]. Did it happen? Yes. Do you expect VH1 to leave that on the cutting room floor? Absolutely not.” She said though, that she’s not a puppeteer. “Our show, it’s a 110 percent real.”
