Guess Who Shaunie O’Neal Is Cutting From Basketball Wives L.A.

Posted on Oct 22 2012 - 3:09am by Funky Dineva

People may lie, but numbers don’t. Ratings for season 2 of Basketball Wives are down and it is no secret. The ratings for episode 5 are down to 1.2 million viewers from 1.8 and are on a steady decline. Quiet as its kept, I have not made many review videos on the show because many of the episodes haven’t left me with much material to go feed off of. As much as the viewing audience is trying, it is hard for the contrived story lines on BBWLA to hold viewers attention or be trusted as believable.

As viewers lose interest in the sinking ship, changes must be made. If Shaunie is going to salvage what’s left of the franchise considering the damages Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman have already done, someone or a couple someones have got to go. Who do you think it is? Catch these T’s.

Fed up viewer and friend of The Doll, Kevin Simmons of the youtube show The Skorpion Show tweeted his dislike for the show and Shaunie’s response was rather interesting. Check it out below:



I know thats right Miss Shaunie. Shaunie O’neal said the BBWLA horse is not ready to be put out to pasture just yet. A complete shake up of the cast may just be what the struggling franchise needs to breath new life into the show and regain the interest of the viewers.

A shake up like this is not unheard of. Look at The Real Housewives Of New York and The Real Housewives of Miami. The framework is definitely there. It is tried and proven. We know it works. All Shaunie and the casting folks over at VH1 have to do is find the right people to play the parts. Word of advice, next time get some real wives around the same age that actually know one another. BAM!

    First of all I live for Funky Dineva!!! yes gawd hunty! Now let me get dwn to the T. Jackie is a certified wack job! Laura is boring and sneaky but in her defense her sneaky behavior towards Jackie is understandable! Brook is FINE AS HELL!!!! I would chop that down any day, and I was SO SO PISSED OFF when brook (I think) hoped on Jacky’s a55 and Shaunie did not let us see it! Shaunie if you are no longer going to show all of outrageous level ten bafonary I’m not watching any more!!! I watch the show to get a dose of ignorance, so Mrs.Shaunie is sadly mistaken if she thinks I’m going to watch a show that has all the goodies cut out!! Let me go back to work now…

    I think everybody is really just tired of the Basketball Wives Shows all together. We’re ready for something new.

    I am still trying to figure out why this show is called Basket Ball Wives…..Like seriously?? Any who, here’s how I feel about this bunch uh’ rachetness and I’m sure this don’t matter to these broads but I don’t give two phuqs amma still go in on um!

    Malaisa: I liked her character on the first season but not so much now! Just like her teeth, there is nothing real about her….she’s a problem starter and a wolf in sheep clothing! She just sneaky like that! I do however respect her hustle with her jewellery line and all! Go head and let have B!CH.

    Laura: There’s nothing about Laura that screams *STAR*…. she the type uh woman who would catch her man in bed with the maid or the nanny! get with it gurl….I mean its ok to be comfortable but dam Bich you uh bit too comfy!! Also, I can never respect a person that play two sides of the fence and for that, I hope Jacky lays the smack down on her Manish a$$ then hands Gloria her a$$ if she gets in it (Oh, Matt did that already).

    Gloria: Apart from being boring as phuq,Gloria is a very beautiful girl who in my opinion doesn’t belong on this show. Yes she acts as if she is better that everyone else (that’s fine) but she does a good job at being that prissy B!CH. If this was someone else acting this way i.e. Draya, then I’ll go in on her ass fast!! Matt is such a lucky mnan to have her as his cover-up! YES!! COVER-UP!!

    Brooke: Brooke is hella funny! her voice is thee most annoying thing I’ve heard in a minute but I tolerate her cause she keeps in real in the field. Mamma looks good to have three grown kids too! Real or Fake, Mamma body is RIGHT!

    Bambi: Bambi who?

    Thirsty broad gets no review from TheDyme.

    Draya: Draya is playing her part this season as she did last season. To me, she has no problem being a garden tool. That’s what she is and she doesn’t try to down play it or change it in no way! I just hope she’s investing her money or saving for her son cause when that body is done, it’s done for good! Your old cast mate Armani. p.s the next time you step to Mama Jacky, you better pick your teeth up off the floor “lil girl”,

    Lat but certainly not least
    Mama Jacky: Jacks….Oh Jacky! She’s uh mess and I hope and pray she finds herself and her husband! (he prolly out with Matt)
    I can’t really go in on Jacky cause she’s not funny any more…..she makes me angry more that she entertains me!

    P.S I’m waiting to she who’s eating that banana or munching carpets in the Christies house with this dumb tattoo!

    i don’t know if a new cast would work. you pointed out real housewives of miami and new york changed their casts up and it worked. it actually didn’t work. the ratings for RHONY were down 30% from last year. RHOM stayed about the same, which is terrible considering the first season was canceled after 6 episodes due to ratings.

    This show needs to be pulled. It’s more wack than it is ratchet.

    I also think the show has gotten boring. I don’t blame it on Jackie as much as I blame this tired storyline. You are kicking a dead horse and trying to breath life into it. Let it die. Most of the episodes find the cast sitting around once again talking about Jackie. Come on now! If thats all you got then you may have to let it go. Some of these tired girls are trying to breath life into the show on their own. For instance Malaysia is trying to be a little fiesty. Stop it! Continue to be you. I certainly don’t want anyone to get fired because we all need our jobs, Maybe a couple more cast members can be added w/o getting rid of anyone. Just a thought, Nessa Gurl!! lol

    on the last episode of BBWLA I have seen, I literally hid beneath my blanket out of shame at the sight of Jackie’s display of dementia. this is the only show that actually embarrasses me.

      I agree..sad indeed. Jackie should be setting an example yet she is the most immature.

    I watched the first season but once I saw that Crazy ass Jackie was on the second, I stopped watching. You ladies of the cast have to deal with that nutbag, not I. Wont get any rating from me.

    Both of those housewives shows you mentioned have gotten lower ratings since they changed much of the cast.

    Basketball Wives LA is horrendous. It is boring and the people are not glam and fab like I though.
