VH1’s “Basketball Wives” puts Shaq, Dwight Howard on blast

Six minutes. That’s how long I watched the debut episode of “Basketball Wives” on VH1 last night. I’m the biggest reality-show nut of anybody I know, and it’s not like I have a fundamental problem with the premise of the show; it’s just not that good. Maybe it’ll get better, but for now it’s too staged.

Shaq‘s ex-wife Shaunie O’Neal is the star/producer of the new series, which also features Antoine Walker‘s ex-fiancee, Matt Barnes‘ fiancee, Eric Williams‘ wife, Dwight Howard‘s baby’s mom and Michael Olowokandi‘s ex-wife. Cue the drama.

    I would have liked to seen all the Dallas Mavericks wives/finances/exwives on a show (Dirk’s, J-Kidd’s, Caron Butler/JJ Barea/Erica Dampier/Deshawn Stevenson)

    eric williams is still in the league????

  • mules

    I heard Sheldon Williams is going to produce a WNBA Husbands reality show.

    Well, Shaq’s never been faithful to Shaunie. Shaunie cheated on Shaq after he fucked Superhead and a host of other broads, including Gilbert’s fiancee. Nobody’s perfect but Shaq does have an exceptional asshole resume. Dwight set himself with Royce. She’s fine but you can tell she’s trouble. At least Dwight was smart enough to at least minimize her benefit from the facetime she’s getting.

    I watched about 15 minutes of this last night. These women actually think they are of high caliber. The smug was so thick you could have cut it with a knife. TOO FUNNY!!

    @ Alex “robocop” Murphy
    They should’ve put Toni Braxton in a reunion setup with Jason Kidd, Jamal Mashburn, & Jim Jackson

    I couldn’t bring myself to listen to these bitter, entitled golddiggers complain about how hard done by they are.

    You had sex for money, and lots of it. Quit your whining.

    If Antoine’s ex-girl is there, think Derrick Coleman’s girl also deserves a spot…

  • blkrob25

    Royce aka “everyones choice” isnt even allowed to use Dwight Howards name…Poor baby momma. D12 had a good legal team, to get a lifetime gag order put on her.

    I think there’s clearly something wrong with the TITLE of this show…

    Funny….weren’t all of these girls “hoes” at one time as well? Before they met their wealthy husbands at least? 90% of NBA wives were hoes at one time? I just read that somewhere within the last week….where did I read that?

    Anyways, so now, you got all these former hoes telling other hoes to stop their ho-ing ways??? What type of s#!t is this?

  • life-p

    The Lakers planned this show perfectly..muuuhhaahhaahaa (Dr.Evil’s laugh)

  • Spliff 2 My Lou

    I thought ball players were supposed to get with dimes? Add all these girls up and they a few cents short of a quarter.

    Besides, as tick tock hinted to, none of these girls are currently married to NBA players. Show should be called NBA Groupies.

    I actually watched the whole episode and I learned nothing I already knew.

    Shaunie O’Neal can still get, get, get it btw

  • flegman

    wtf is this sh*t???

  • Heckler

    i saw some of this shit too.
    its about a 3 on a scale of 10. aint nothing to be learned on this show.
    these bitches aint do shit but go to a dinner and pool party with TO.

    life is soooo tough for them.
    i wouldnt call em hoes or groupies, but i just dont understand what they bitching about and what the basis of this show is

    Two minutes. That’s how long I just watched that stupid YouTube video with people I don’t know, talking about bullshit I don’t know about.

  • quest???

    @ 808 I think it was from espn’s magazine player x. I read that too

    I thought that maybe this show could take place of Housewives of Atlanta, but it fell way short.

    Only one of the girls is STILL involved with a basketball player. And that dude isn’t even in the league anymore, atleast I don’t think so. This show was wackk.

  • E$

    I would love to see how much they are spending daily/weekly/monthly….sorry if those sob stories don’t get to me

    The funny part is that A.Walker ex-wife is saying she was lonely, but he is out of the “L”….once the money goes, so go the ho’s
