Oh lawwwdd, when does it stop? Lately, the
women-on-women girl-on-girl fighting on “Basketball Wives” has sparked much controversy, even to the point where advertisers are pulling out and petitions are being made to stop the hate!
We can’t deny that we love a good fight every now and then…it’s what makes the show entertaining right? (Even if it’s scripted, whatever). But let’s not forget the fact that these are GROWN women, some with kids, who are jumping up on tables, throwing wine bottles, and pointing fingers as if we were back in the high school cafeteria.
In response to all of this heat, VH1 promised to cut back on the fighting in the show’s next season and they stated:
Lately, there has been a lot of conversation about Basketball Wives, a series featuring strong, intelligent women with very passionate viewpoints which can sometimes escalate. We at VH1 agree with and support Shaunie and the show producers’ ‘no excessive physical confrontations’ policy on the series moving forward. We are all committed to balancing the candid, bold excitement that the viewers have come to love in the series with storylines and representations they can be proud of. Shaunie has been a strong advocate for a more balanced approach to the show and we, along with our producing partners at Shed Media, are all in agreement about moving forward with that goal.
What do you guys think? Will you still watch the show even if Tami’s not going at the new girl’s neck? Leave your comments below and check out the full story here!
