Exclusive: Shaunie O’Neal Releases Statement on ‘Basketball Wives’ Controversy

Since the drama on the popular VH1 show has reached new levels (Jennifer Williams is suing Nia Crooks, Evelyn Lozada’s assistant, for assault), the BBW head expressed her personal thoughts on the matter.
“I’m extremely happy that Basketball Wives continues to have another successful fourth season.
