    Tracy: For those who say they’re fed-up with “Basketball Wives,” how would you persuade them to tune in?
    Shaunie: Those people that say that, I really don’t say anything to them to be honest. That’s their opinion. If you’re going to tell me you’re not going to watch “Basketball Wives,” but you tune into some of the other shows on the same network, it’s a little contradictory to me. If I were to try to convince somebody to watch, I would say that this season, there is growth. There is a whole lot of growth. There is some change in some people. Don’t look to see a bunch of Mother Theresas ‘cause that’s not happening, but you do see growth. I am very proud of season 5 of “Basketball Wives.” It’s growth and it is some change there. We’re not perfect, but we’re better.

    Tracy: There’s been a lot of talk of cast members “turning over a new leaf.” What will surprise us?
    Shaunie: I don’t know that everybody’s turning over a new leaf. I think that’s been exaggerated a little bit. Like I said, there’s growth. I don’t think anyone on the cast has completely turned into someone new. I think there are surprises on who has grown some balls all of a sudden this season. There’s just growth. There’s a little regression in some moments, too, in some folks, but overall, there’s growth. There’s no one coming out brand new. I can’t say they’ve turned over a new leaf completely. It’s turning.

    Tracy: Is “Basketball Wives: LA” returning?
    Shaunie: L.A. is coming back. They’ll be starting to tape in August. We’re getting a facelift thing done to L.A….actually, done. It’s not being done. It’s done. Expect some new cast members, not all.

    Tracy: Is there anything else you want to add about season 5?
    Shaunie: I’m very proud of this season. We’re growing and learning and don’t expect us to be brand new, but it is some growing. I think and I hope that our viewers will still tune in and still be proud, despite there won’t be a table flip, but understand that after 5 seasons you have to grow, with or without TV. We’re dealing with that. It’s real reality stuff happening.
