Basketball Wives Renewed for Season 5, Promises More ‘Balance’
The revolution WILL be televised!
Star Jones, Wendy Williams, and all the other Basketball Wives haters probably scheduled a colonic after hearing Vh1 has renewed the drink throwing, table jumping for another season. I know what you're thinking, 'getting a colonic has nothing to do with this situation!' But doesn't everybody who hates on Basketball Wives look like they need one?
“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.”From Vh1:
“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.”Really? Now all of a sudden they want a more balanced show? I guess all these chicks will now have to find jobs and do more than meet at restaurants. If they're serious I'm definitely down for it. Kudos to Shaunie for finally making it happen. I'm sure she remains humble through all of this.
