VH1 + Producers of “Basketball Wives” Release Statements About Negative Image on Show

VH1 + Producers of “Basketball Wives” Release Statements About Negative Image on Show

On the last episode of Basketball Wives, Tami Roman erupted (while drunk, supposedly) at a charity event with the BBW girls… about food stamps.  Yes, food stamps.  Jennifer Williams, who attempted to explain that her having never seen food stamps was not meant to disrespect Roman, but to live up to her middle class upbringing, but was subjected to some unruly comments and aggression.

In Tami’s defense, she later apologized via Twitter:

I just landed in NYC, but I did catch 2nites episode on the plane. As I said earlier, this was BAD, wrong & immature-I apologize…

I’m not proud of my behavior, but I own up to it and face it. I do apologizee 2my family, my friends, my kids & 2 my cast members

The supporters who have been there, I’m sorry I let U down-this was not handled properly & I felt bad THEN and now.

I simply ask that U b respectful 2my kids-they R NOT on BBW & do not control my actions on the show. Don’t become what U criticze.

I would have blogged this but I wanted 2 address it as soon as I landed. Accept it or not, I acknowledge & apologize to ALL involved.

Also in most recent news, it was rumored that the BBW franchise was considering to sue Jennifer Williams as an instigator of the show’s negativity.  But let’s be honest, while Jennifer may have been in the middle of many disputes, it appears that she’s one of the most sane and less volatile of them all.  But in the end, all of them have come to blows at one point or another.  This season in particular, showing the most unnecessary disputes than before.

In this clip below, Shaunie O’Neal speaks on the show’s portrayal in the media and what she and her production team are planning to do the next go-round:

Followed by statements from VH1 and Shed Media, who co-produce the show, whom released their own separate statements echoing the same sentiments:

From Shed:

“Shed Media US is fully committed to telling the compelling stories of the Basketball Wives in a balanced way. Our producing partner Shaunie O’Neal feels strongly about this, and we fully agree with this stance. We support her as she encourages the cast members to work out issues in a non-violent fashion. We look forward to working with her and the rest of the cast on conveying more balance in the next season.”

VH1 also weighs in, saying:

“Our viewers opinions always matter a great deal to us at VH1. Lately, there has been a lot of conversation about Basketball Wives, a series featuring strong, intelligent women with very passionate viewpoints which can sometimes escalate.

We at VH1 agree with and support Shaunie and the show producers’ “no excessive physical confrontations” policy on the series moving forward. We are all committed to balancing the candid, bold excitement that the viewers have come to love in the series with storylines and representations they can be proud of. Shaunie has been a strong advocate for a more balanced approach to the show and we, along with our producing partners at Shed Media, are all in agreement about moving forward with that goal.”

 

Personally, I gave up on the show at the beginning of this season and picked up these instead.  The issues with BBW Tionna Smalls discussed seemed to have gotten worse, but I just may tune in again to see if and/or how they will implement a new balanced display of women on the show.  Will you?

    Last show was unfair, john seem to take sides with all the negative women and already to let them talk tami had the nerve to talk to jen abouther bullying the othergirl when she should have been brought out how she treated kesha instead they were all over jen, she is the one that evelyn jumped on the table and her friend hit her in the face, that show seems to approve of negatively people. And susie should be called out.

    Shawnie Oneil and Tammit Roman is some OLD AXX bullies and Shawnie does act as if she is above the remaining of the cast. I am sooooo happy that Brandie stood up to her ass, something no one ever wanted to do. Shawnie want to say that they are tore up! That is a joke, when they (cast of Miami) were All tore up, so much so that no one wanted to see none of there asses anymore (yes including Miss Oneil). We all know you are the EXec Producer”, but so xxxxxxx what!! Play your position (EXEC) and stay off the show! REPEAT: NO ONE WANTS TO SEE YOU!!!! Talk about sensitive. Soon as Brandie tells ya ass about yourself, the I am that xxxxx comes out. YOu an TAMMIE ROMAN….SIT Y’ALL TIRE ASSES DOWN….NO ONE WANTS TO SEE Y’ALL!! If so everyone will stop watching the show, as we all did with BBW Miami!! Yall soooo fxxxxxg with yall old asses.!!!!!

    Good post. I learn one thing tougher on completely different blogs everyday. It can all the time be stimulating to read content material from other writers and apply somewhat one thing from their store. I’d favor to make use of some with the content on my weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link in your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
