"Basketball Wives" (Jennifer Williams is third from the right)
On February 22. 2011, the Judiciary Report stated the reality show "Basketball Wives" on VH-1 "makes black women look bad" (Shaunie Stirring The Doo Doo In The NBA). Shortly after, producer and star, Shaunie O'Neal began complaining about the comment in an interview (Shaunie O'Neal Slams Her Show Basketball Wives).
Recently, one of the stars of "Basketball Wives" reality star, Jennifer Williams, made a similar comment that the show "portrays African-American women negatively" according to TMZ. It was announced yesterday the producers of the show are in talks to sue Williams for the comment. Apparently, she signed a contract that prohibits her from publicly disparaging the show. However, how is Shaunie and her production partners going to sue, when she later alluded to the same thing (Shaunie O'Neal Slams Her Show Basketball Wives).
