So would you continue to watch Basketball Wives if they cut out all of the backstabbing, cussing, water fights, and Suzie’s spit pooling in the inside her mouth? Well if Shaunie O’Neal has her way the show will be a toned done version of it’s former self. Shaunie recently issued a open letter to CNN where she talked about the negative portrayal of black women on tv.

On the current formula of the show:

As you see on the show, I’m not a big supporter of the bickering, drink throwing and fighting, but when you put a group of strong, independent and vocal women who are going through or just came out of a bad relationship together, there’s bound to be a little drama.

Really Shaunie?

When I look back at season 2 you were one of the biggest instigators on the show? And what about you attacking that girls decision to not want to talk about not getting married? That’s her business.

I find it hilarious that one of the biggest ratings grabber on VH1 is now all of a sudden damaging to black women. I’m in no way glorifying what happens on ‘Basketball Wives’ but it’s true life and groupies get involved with athletes, try to get wife’d up, and sit on a goldmine. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t.. Reality tv is just that Reality. Whether real or fake it’s people putting their business out there for the world to see.

If it’s not broke why fix it? I say leave it the way it is because it will teach young girls out there on how not to act.

I appreciate Shaunie’s need to want to ‘clean’ up the set but if you are gonna throw a party and offer me water instead of Vodka I’d just prefer you not give me anything at all…

    NO, I will not watch anymore! That will take away from the whole concept
