If you’ve been keeping up with this season of Basketball Wives (the season finale airs this week by the way), then you know that Cece Gutierrez has been at odds with Kristen Scott and Evelyn Lozada. Still, plenty of other women on the show have taken issue with her, including Feby Torres, who has called her a clown (“Bozo”), and Shaunie O’Neal, who in a recent episode, did a parody performance of Cece, who has been accused of not owning the things she says and does at times. The fact that Shaunie has jumped on the anti-Cece bandwagon has been a shock to her and her fiancé Byron Scott.

While appearing on the Domenick Nati Show, she said that she and Shaunie have never really had an issue, so “it kind of sucked” that she chose to make fun of her.

“I know Byron was upset because we had seen a clip where Evelyn and Shaunie are kind of making fun of me a little bit,” she said. “I have an overbite, right? They’re like making fun of my overbite and trying to make fun of my walk, which I don’t even understand why they do that. I think it disrespected him because he’s looking at that like, ‘Okay, you’ve never done anything to Shaunie and she’s doing that.’ There was more in that scene that you don’t see. It got cut off in the beginning, so he got to see it, I got to see it, and we just thought it kind of sucked because I’ve never had any beef or any issue with Shaunie, her and I, ever. He was just kind of upset like, ‘Hey, you’ve never done anything to her, why is she making fun of you?’ kind of thing. Just kind of sticking up for me.”

Cece, who didn’t take part in the upcoming reunion, says that with everything she’s dealt with in Season 8, she isn’t sure that Basketball Wives is for her.

“To be honest, I don’t know if I’m going to be coming back. Right now it’s a little up in the air,” she said in the interview. “I had a lot of ups and downs, a lot of downs [laughs]. More downs than ups. There were a lot of things that were just kind of rocky with me that kind of gave me a bad taste in my mouth. So at this point, I’m not quite sure if I’m coming back or not.”

We have a feeling Cece might be on the fence because she wants to support her good fried OG (whom we also have a feeling will stick around to happily call out the behavior of her co-stars). Still, it would be in Cece’s best interest, and the Scott family’s, if she left this petty group of women alone. Check out her interview below.
