Basketball Wives Profile; Shaunie O'Neal

Not much is known about Shaunie and her personality is very profiled and edited on the show. She is never seen in comprisming sitauations like the other cast.

Natural beauty and soft spoken however can be a instigator but comes over innocent and clean.  Her friends on the show are more aquintances she made over a period. She is an instigator in that it's business before pleasure however can blame most flamable situations that it's a group production company decision rather than just hers.

Very intelligent and on the show comes over quietly confident and in control. However she is not above the odd snide or bitchy remark. She may be loud, brash and outspoken behind the cameras but infront she is nice and caring - almost too perfect.

In brief moments you can see her disbelief at the actions and probably thinking 'why am I doing this?' The situation with nearly getting hit by the bottle showed her shock and underneath it she was shaken up.

Strengths - shrewd and savvy business woman who exploits her 'soft and caring' image to bring fame-hungry women for a show. Can maniplulate others in a 'nice' way - for example knowing Evelyn Lozada will flame up like that -but Shaunie will still shrug it off and comes over blames. She uses the production company and that fact the women are adults as a defense for her part in planting drama.  I'm sure it's not first time Evelyn has reacted like this however it was usually in private not in public.

Excellent at creating a sympathic image of herself on the show but it comes over too clean at time - however she is likeable and sweet.

She know the difference and draws the line in business, pleasure and friendships. Over all is a ruthless business woman - which is what you need to be to succeed.

Weakness - she needs to evolve beyond this Dramality of Basketball wives and look for other more postive formats otherwise this will be all she does. Probably expand to other media - which she and her company will be probably trying to pitch.

Growing Up Hip Hop Episode 6 Season Finale: A Question for Romeo- The Virgin Queen Angela or sexy Kristinia 'The Missing Kardashian Sister' DeBarges.

To my surprise I found this was the season finale, and I think due the lacklustre performance and lack of promotion by any of the investors or stars it may not be commissioned for a second season. Frankly when I found out this was the final episode in the series I thought it was an anti climax. Why? Well the cliffhangers were Angela's stalker who no one really cares about, and also Romeo driving away to have a threesome probably fake with Kristinia 'The missing Kardashian sister' DeBarge and her friend Ashley.
Oh well let's starts with my observations of this show. Will I be watching it again? I don't know. They even seem to having a reunion.

Def Jam and Phat Farm Founder Uncle Russell Gives Angela Simmons A Piece of Mind The show kicks off with Angela Simmons sprawled out on her virgin white bedsheets when Uncle Russ gives her a call for an update on the stalker situation. She tells him she’s made contact with the stalker.

Basketball Wives season 5 - Episode 4: It's all about Evelyn missing wife-headpuncher Chad and Tami seeking drama over what Shaunie said to Tasha Marbury. Suzie Ketcham says jaw surgery was to correct assault on her jaw used as punching bag by some unnamed ex of hers

This was show all about Evelyn 'Will-I-go-back-to-Chad' Lozada and Tami 'I'll-punch-you-in-the-face' Roman.  It's got to be the most boring Basketball Wives I've watched.  And it was so boring so I'll just cover some points and in no particular order. I hope it makes sense in some way?

UPDATE: NOTE: Tami confirms in her blog that her mother died at Tami's home surrounded by her family - that is Tami and her two daugthers who were with her when she died.

Evelyn continues to whines about Chad Johnson Ochocinco

Evelyn goes on and on about Chad Johnson Ochocinco till at some point I start to feel sorry for the man. This is too bad because I can't believe that I feel sorry for Chad Johnson Ochocinco. Never thought I would say this. POOR CHAD. Seriously, Poor Chad Johnson Ochocinco. I really do feel for him because it's like an nightmare that will never end. For him and for us. Evelyn too because she has that horrible gash on her forehead. No …

R&B Divas LA season 1 episode 3: Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Lil’ Mo, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson all go to Vegas, Chante Moore is all about female empowerment and self-marrage, Dawn Robinson reveals more about her hurtful and abusive marrage also struggles to have a child,Lil Mo and Chante Moore save the day singing at Boardway in the Hood.

This show is pleasant, honest and easy to watch. I think they have go the balance right in this case because I can see people like Chante Moore, Lil Mo, Michel'le and to some extent Dawn Robinson not standing for any behind the scenes rubbish - however time will tell since it's still early days.
These women are hungry  in a different way to the ones in R&B Diva's Atlanta. With the exception of Claudette Ortiz- these are very cast full of strong women and know their worth! I say that because Claudette Ortiz is the youngest by a good few years.

So given that the foolery that is Basketball Balls Miami will be starting with Tami, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neil soon this is a good cool down show.

Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz bond over  'All we have being through' discussions.

It kicks off with Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz all discussing the monologues. Yada, yada, yada they keep on talking.
