TWITTER BEEFS: Celebs Put Shaunie O'Neal On Blast...Is She Taking "PIMPING" Reality TV Drama Too Far?

 

"What Chilli Wants" advice expert Tionna Smalls recently put Shaunie O'Neal on blast via twitter ont he heels of last night's "Basketball Wives: L.A." episode, calling her a "bird" for using the drama-filled lives of Meeka Claxton and the others stars of "Basketball Wives" for her own financial benefit.  And for being an unprofessional, so-called producer.  And how she REALLY got that title.

Read her comments inside and decide if we think "BBW" and Shaunie O'Neal have really gone too far.

Reality tv star and advice expert Tionna Smalls recently went on a twitter rant about "BBW" exec producer Shaunie O'Neal after it was reported that Meeka Claxton won't be back next season.  She tweeted today:

"If Meeka is off of the show that would be good for her cuz that show is not a good look for her. Don't worry about if she's off the show. Worry about why your man always cheated on ur ass yet bring Hoopz to every freaking event all over town acting faithful. She's a bird. In no way, shape, or form are u supposed to talk about a binding contract to the public. She wanted Royce off too and the prod. Co. Override her.

Executive producer means her ass just sold the show name to the profuction company and they sold it to vh1. She is unprofessional. Ill say this and ill end it here. Shaunie makes it her business to embarrass ppl on that show because is the "executive producer."

And that's my rant of the day. Sad when people have $ yet they are jealous. Shaunie wanted to be the only one. We see u! What I'm worried abt is getting my ass up and Meeka and the crew coming to help with this school supplies giveaway. Real sh*t."

Putting the "bird" comment aside, other celebs have spoken out against Shaunie and the "BBW" franchise. Sherri Shepherd spoke about the "BBW: LA" premiere tweeting:

“I got physically ill watching Gloria Govan and Malaysia fighting like animals. Resolution via fighting?” She also said, “How do Uteach young girl 2 have respect & self-esteem, by showing her thru UR actions that you’ll pop someone in the mouth?”

Yeah...she meant Laura.  But still.  She later added a call to Jesus for Shaunie and the ladies saying, “For what does it profit a man to gain the world but lose his soul?”

And it didn't stop there. Comedian Rickey Smiley tweeted about the infamous Tami/Meeka showdown saying,

“Did yall know that bullying is a serious problem in our schools??? And teens love that show!! And you wonder why our young ladies in middle and high school think this is how to resolve issues, yea I made jokes as a comic. But notfunny.”

So what do you think?  Is this show and the negativity/drama it highlights causing a bigger problem that we aren't really addressing?  Might this show actually have an impact on how young girls view themselves and act towards each other in school? 

And also....why is Shaunie so comfortable telling everybody else's business but we don't see ANY of her drama (and dating a man as young as hers or has been called an opportunist, there MUST be some drama).

But for her part, Shaunie has said that there needs to be more of a BALANCE and she has acknowledged that the women do charitable works off-camera...we just never see them. 

Hmmm....I wonder why?  Shouldn't an "Executive Producer" have some control over that?

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

Well I am not going to lie. I

Well I am not going to lie. I would get on that show and act a fool for America as long as I could get paid. Being a single mother and working a 9 to 5, dealing with these stuck up a** bosses who feel like they can treat you any kind of way because you work under them, well honey I would go on any reality show that is paying me good and kick everybody a** on there. I mean it is what it is.

Well. I think the show is

Well. I think the show is obviously what people want to see. These women are just that grown women and they choose to portray themselves the way they do. Do I think Shaunie is wrong??? No! There's nothing wrong with making money. She was the wife of a basketball player and she has the inside scoop, she knew the ones that would make the show interesting. Do she have drama? Maybe so. But am I mad at her for not wanting her life and personal drama on display? HELL NO. That means she obviously has more sense aside from the women that are on the show looking like damn fools like Jackie Christie... When these women sign on to do that show they do have the control over what gets displayed so they must want to appear the way they do. So the blame shouldn't be on Shaunie because they could sign on and make themselves look like saints but they choose to look like whores, idiots, and shit starters.

First off, Tionna needa shut

First off, Tionna needa shut her BIG TURKEY STUFFED BREAST ass up and worry about her damn self. Then secondly, WHAT THE FUCK does Shaq and Hoopz got to do with any fucking thing, he and her are divorced. Thirdly, Shaunie and care less about all them hoes, I say whatever way you can make yo money without harming others then do so. These women are grown as shit, and if they didn't wanna look like a damn fool on national television, then they wouldn't sign on for a show. SIMPLE AS THAT. If I had the ability to become a producer, and signing Basketball or Football wives onto a reality shot, then got damnit "let's do it". She isn't holding a gun to anyone's head and forcing them to do anything, so Tionna, get like Shaunie or shut the fuckkkkkkk up, hating ass BEEEEEETCHHHHHHHH

I really don't watch this

I really don't watch this type of garbage on television. Saw one show and became highly insulted by the portrayal of Black woman acting in this manner during this time of great strives historically.... Realized right then and there that the show was black faced media and control (a black face put out front to mask an agenda of stereotyped behavior of Black woman being angry, gold digging , baby mammas). The story line is simplistic, too predictable and lacking in intellectual stimulation. Shame on you shaunnie for allowing yourself to be put out like this when you had an opportunity to show black woman in a more positive light.

Well I like Shaunie and she

Well I like Shaunie and she is only one person behind a five people who are producers. These are grown women who know there own actions. They agree to it before it is even aired on T.V. We make our own selves look bad, it doesnt take one person to do that. Why everybody is having something to say, you have all watch the show obviously, because it is VH1 rated and watched show by who US.. Gone Shaunie make your money....

Let’s be clear about

Let’s be clear about something. EVERYONE involved is responsible for this craptastic display of pettiness and stupidity. Too try to put all the blame on Shaunie is unfair. All of these women know exactly what they are doing. For anyone of them to cry foul now is laughable. This show has been on the air for more than one season. For Meeka Claxton or any random viewer (that’s to you Miss Tionna) who expected a different experience is clearly insane. What’s the problem, seeing you act like an idiot on national television too hard to watch?

Very well said Ms. April.

Very well said Ms. April. And it's interesting how the only "positve" woman on the LA franchise was singled out (although I do have to agree to a certain degree on her pompous ramblings) still at least she's trying to bring the focus to a more constructive and helpful position.

When will she air he secrets. We all know she has them.

at the end of the day they only edit and show what the "WIVES" (term used loosely) do anyways. shaunie's doing what any child with sense does tell on all the other kid and leave out all their own foolishness and mayhem. if we start tuning into positive programing we'll create a demand for it, but as long as folks are watching BBW (brawling basketball wenches) vh1 will keep bringing it back

Negative, negative, negative

Negative, negative, negative and that's not what these chicks saw on the pregnancy test strips which is the only reason they are on t.v!!!! None of the remaining are wives and those that were wives are divorced and the one engaged showed the world how she (Evelyn) brokers her deals that never close! This show is great for discussing with teens what not to do. Meeka sold herself for fame and got what she deserved. She should be happy she is no longer on Basketball Jumpoffs! She's the only one still married and should not want her children to see her on that show. She should still sue Tami if she is any kind of business woman!

what rat/bird/skank lets her

what rat/bird/skank lets her pre-teen/teenage daughter watch this kind of mess? oh, i just answered my own question. and if shaunie and her bitches brew of butthurt babymommas is to blame, its actually not on Her. she had an idea, she has a bunch of loser bitches to perpetuate this lifestyle and WE THE FOOLS WATCHING IT. it all boils down to the nielson ratings. if we don't support this mess, we won't have this mess to talk about cuz it won't be on television. i've said it before, and i will say it again - shaunie is doing Work. can't hate that this trainwreck set to lunch is taking off. that's Our fault. stop watching these shows and dimes to donuts it will be off the air damn soon. hollywood don't have a problem letting US look a fool, as long as we can pay for it.

seriously people......do you

seriously people......do you think teenage girls watch this and really want to act that way?........any young femal adult should watch, so that they can see how ridiculous one looks when they act a fool.....this is the best teaching tool a parent can have.....with any luck the ladies will watch themselves and learn something about their behavior ......... I over 40 and trust me...everytime i see them act a fool, its definitely a reminder of the old cliche........always remain cool, calm & collected.......

parents should be role model to their own children - don't depend on anyone else. If you do the right thing then your child will have not problems. Give kids more credit.

The show does not give a good example to young teens at all....but I wouldnt look down on Shaunie for that. I also feel that people over the age of 18 shouldnt be watching the show at all.

Please by now all these chics

Please by now all these chics know what they are getting into when they sign up for these shows. Im not hating on Shaunie for profitting off the stupidy of others.
Anonymous's picture

These chics went on the show

These chics went on the show to air there drama? Are they not grown women? were they forced? Lets keep is real this Drama stuff started with the RHW of OC and spiraled into atlanta, jersey, and NYC. How is this chic on twitter calling people names but has the ovaries to call someone else unprofessional? People that don't want drama don't do reality tv. Also all these people complaining about Drama are the ones giving these shows ratings... how about you stop watching. I have not seen any of these shows since the first season of RHW Atlanta... you dont have to watch people.

I agree with Tionna, Why isnt

I agree with Tionna, Why isnt Shaunie's ish airing on tv like the rest of them, and I do agree with Rickey Smiley, I love Tammy, but a bully is a bully, i dont think Tami is trying to be a bully she is defending herself, but I wish these ladies would keep it classy.. Like the RHOBH, they have some of the same issues, but you dont see them fighting and calling each other the B word and acting a fool, yes they do act a fool and they do get in each others face but never will you see them throwing hands or being stupid. Reality is great forum, but when you show this, you are giving others what they want, this is what they really think of us, that no matter how much money we have we are still classless. I love the ladies of BBW, but I really wish that we could get it together and show more positives that negatives...

I agree but @ the same Time

I agree but @ the same Time Shaunie is wrong in a way but u have to remember sumthing theses ladies didn't have to join the show for 1 meeka she seems like a cool chick but I'm quite sure she look @ the show b4 she saw it so why would u go on the show know wtf was going on smh @ her if she would of went on the show and been meeka instead of kissing ass or trying to fit it she would of been the star of the show bc she would of been lik royce and had that I don't give a fuck attitude just bc u are friends wiff sum1 u don't take there side if they wrong they wrong and if they right they right as for the producer for the show ur already kno wat it is it was getting boring anyway bc nobody wanna see Everlyn, Shaunie and Jenn anyway by tionna is right and yea Tammy was wrong also but meeka do run that mouth a lot

All of you that blaming

All of you that blaming Shaunie are a bunch of dumb asses that's just hating on a black woman making $$$$$$..... Reality TV of all colors has some of the same trash, fights and ghetto ass qualities. What you all should be doing is telling those unmarried wives to get their shit together! If their lives is fuck up, why bring it to tv. How the fuck is Shaunie responsible for them bitches wanting to get their own money!

TRUTH HURTS's picture

The fact is that people love

The fact is that people love dram whether it is black or white or cats or dogs (animal fighting (abuse)). Why does this show get so much flack when the Bad Girls Club isn't any different...drinking like fish, falling down drunk, kissing random dudes, bringing random dudes home, sexing anything that pays them attention, fighting like high school girls, childish conversation, it's crazy, yet there is so much focus on BBW's. I think the show could be better if we actually saw what a real basketball wife does. Why not show the positive things they do ON AIR? Why just show the negative? On the Ricky Smiley show they were talking about when they went to a school to talk to the youth, aksed what they wanted to be and one of the girls said theywanted to be a basketball wife. WOW. Really? Girls are influenced by this behavior and this show is raising them. I thought it was funny that they were so mad that Tonia (i think thats her name) didn't get involved. Why should she get pulled into the ghettoness that ensued. They had plenty of people that still couldn't break up that fight. Why should she break a nail messing w/ them? LOL. You have a black woman on the show who speaks properly and doesn't act ignorant, and they talk about her like she is doing something wrong. She can be a little upety (i know i didn't spell that right), but so what. Like someone said, someone is going to show it, whether it's Bravo Real Housewives or VH1. Stuff like this will always get watched. Why do black folk always get bashed when there are so many shows like this including Jersey Shore, the Real World and Bad Girls Club? Oh Please. The problem is we hate to love it.

Some of you people used to

Some of you people used to come to school every day talking about a new Jerry episode! Laughing! He's paid off of sheer stupidity and not Caring how to act for money! So when a single mother decides NOT to just live off a basketball players child support money and make her own people who DON'T know her have a problem with it. If she didnt have this show and was photographed shopping and partying with her younger boyfriend all the time yall would call her out her name saying she was spending her baby daddy's money on him. Stop with all that! If you don't know her personally you don't know her FULL story!! I am pretty sure in your own home town there is a person that you have a problem with that you have to have said to yourself, why do they have a problem with me and they don't even know me. Stop downing everthing about people you have not and will never meet!

This is the reason this show

This is the reason this show is so popular: because EVERYONE talks about the "drama", manufactured or not... I'm sure they: cast, crew, producers etc... could care less about what ppl are saying, as long as they are saying SOMETHING...all publicity, is GOOD publicity in HollyWEIRD.

It completely a prime example of the saying " you can take a trick out of the getto, but you can't the getto out of the trick"! Where did these BB players find these females, is the question we need to ask the players. And what was the attraction, out of all the women in the world. Why them? Seriously!

I would suggest BEFORE you

I would suggest BEFORE you call people out for not having lives, you should either go back to school and learn the English language or proofread your post. I do not care which one you choose, but choose. Then return and post an intelligent viewpoint, which everyone may not only read but understand as well.

Rickey Smiley kept it all the way 100. The alcoholic bully should be the one not asked to return to the show. In school and in life being a bully and a drunk is rewarded with expulsion and jail/trouble with the law. Meeka needs to follow through with the lawsuit just like Rhianna didn't let up off of Chris Brown. Tami through the first punch and everything, and this is like her 2nd or 3rd time attacking someone on the show. Why does she think that mess is okay and justifiable? People, especially the young black women watching this show, really do need to see that it's not ever okay. The same way Rhianna stuck to her guns against Chris for her fans, Meeka needs to do the same for the young women who's attention she has while she has it.
