Laura Govan thinks Shaunie O’Neal and her penchant for casting “hos” has ruined the “Basketball Wives” franchise.
Even though she’s not actually married to Gilbert Arenas, Laura thinks that Shaunie made a huge mistake with her series by not featuring many women that were currently married.
When “Basketball Wives” launched three years ago, Jennifer Williams was the only member of the cast that was hitched to an NBA player. Even though, their marriage was on the rocks, Jennifer didn’t file for divorce until season 3. The rest of the cast was rounded out with former fianceés, ex-wives and baby mamas.
“I’m kind of mad at Shaunie. I feel like she didn’t keep [the show] in the basketball creed,” Laura told TMZ.com during a candid moment, where she clearly wasn’t taking her own marital status into account.
“She should have kept ‘Basketball Wives,’ basketball wives” Laura continued “There coulda been a ‘Housewives’ or a ‘Ho’ show for everybody else later.”
To be fair, “BBW” newbie Tasha Marbury is still married to her baller Stephon Marbury. Despite some very public infidelity between the Beijing Ducks player and the couple’s former chef, Tasha and Stephon are still together.
“Not if you’re secure in them, and you know what you’re getting into before you go into it. I think the rest of that is horsesh*t. I think if you’re relationship is going to sustain it will happen.
