Brandi Maxiell Explains “Basketball Wives” Departure

After being brought back to “Basketball Wives” only to seemingly be unceremoniously let go AGAIN, Brandi Maxiell’s offering an explanation.

The reality star recently chatted with K104’s DeDe In The Morning about her departure from the VH1 show that she says is “boring” and “horrible.”

“They did bring me back, they brought me back and then the first time they had the season coming, it was some things I didn’t agree on,” said Brandi. “Also when they started filming I lost my grandmother, so my mental state—I wasn’t there. Then in January they called me and said, ‘I need you, I need you.’

“Everyone in the world thinks I’m fired and that Shaunie gave me the boot. I was never fired,” she added. “I said ‘I’m done with this.’ It wasn’t right, they were trying to get girls to not film with me.

She also added that she thinks Shaunie O’Neal encouraged Tami Roman not to film with her…

Brandi: “I believe they used the Tami situation.”

DeDe: “So Tami didn’t want to film with you?”

Brandi: “That’s what she said but I heard that’s not the truth. I heard it was Shaunie like ‘why is this girl still back?’ ‘I fired her and she’s still back.'”

and added that she thinks Evelyn Lozada is “fake.”

“I used to like her. I think she’s the fakest broad on earth,” said Brandi. “I don’t respect her anymore. She went on “The Real” talking about substance and it kinda seemed like she was talking about Malaysia and I.”

Ooop! Looks like Brandi’s all the way done with BBWLA, for real this time.

Watch her speak on the show below.
