Executive producer of VH1’s “Basketball Wives,” Shaunie O’Neal comments on the negative portrayal of black women on Reality TV. It seems that Shaunie doesn’t feel “Basketball Wives” portray black women in a negative light. She recently addressed the issue on CNN.com. Shaunie says watching reality television is a guilty pleasure of hers and fun to watch. Even before “Basketball Wives” she had her favorites that she would watch faithfully. She feels the new generation of reality TV has become more about drama than the story line and are not fun to watch. If you ask me, “Basketball Wives” fits into that category of the new generation. The show is based on the life of a woman married to a NBA player. We have not seen the full view of that lifestyle, the women on the show are exes or baby mommas. The majority of what we see, are women insulting one another and fighting over petty issues. Shaunie says, “I believe that if you look closely and beyond the arguing and the fighting, you’ll see a group of women trying to get their lives back on track and figure out who they really are.” This maybe so but its really hard to see that when the drama starts before the intro starts. I Love Shaunie O’Neal and her money making skills but I think she is being a bit delusional here.
