“I don’t want to go back…I don’t want to sit in the midst of that anymore,” Shaunie O’Neal told The Insider recently when they asked her about whether or not she plans to return to Basketball Wives for another season. While the announcement was made last night that there will definitely be a season five, Shaunie expressed her feelings about returning in this interview and she was pretty unequivocal. “I have no problem walking away from the franchise,” she said. “The level of where it’s going is out of control.” Shaunie’s caveat is that she won’t return if things don’t get better, so as adamant as she is, she still has until August or September, contract renewal time, to make up her mind. However, she definitely has ideas about who shouldn’t return.
When Shaunie was then asked “If you could, would there definitely be people you would exclude [from next season]?” she responded “Yes. Three. Immediately, no questions asked. [It’s] not anything personal, it’s just not where I’m trying to go. Not on the same page.” As she said, contract negotiations aren’t for a couple of months, so anything could happen in that time, but anyone care to take a guess who she’s referring to?
