Countless “former” Basketball Wives fans have vowed that they’re done with the franchise. Boycotts have have even erupted as a result of the violence demonstrated on the show during past seasons. However, as much as folks swear they’re through with the controversial reality show, executive producer and cast member, Shaunie O’Neal, says that viewership is telling completely different story.

“As much as people complain, the numbers seem to show that they like it. It is what it is. I’m proud of this season more than any other, and I love that,” she told EBONY.

“I hope it doesn’t affect the numbers, but if it does, I’m still very proud of it. I wouldn’t change it for anything,” she added.

“I am looking forward to this season so much. I’m really proud of the finished product. You’ll see a lot of growth out of us. Don’t expect some Girl Scouts and us to be perfect, but you’ll definitely see that we have grown in our own different ways. I’m really proud of the outcome.”

She also claims that she and her fired co-star Jennifer Williams are on “good terms.”

“I haven’t spoke to Jenn [Williams] in quite some time, and the last time I did, we were on good terms. That decision came from the network itself. It wasn’t a production call, it was a network call. Once it gets to that point, it’s out of my hands.”

Shaunie went on to say that she’s interested in opening the franchise up to other cities.

“I would love to add another city. We have definitely talked about adding another city or maybe even two,” the mom of five revealed.
