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?
