During the Basketball Wives LA Season 3 finale, Sundy Carter got into a heated argument with her least favorite cast member, Brandi Maxiell, and threw Brandi’s ovarian cancer history in her face by taunting her inability to have a second child. And while castmate Malaysia Pargo was visibly upset by the low blow, it turns out the executive producer Shaunie O’Neal was too — and broke her silence on it.
Taking to Twitter on Monday night, Shaunie wrote:
“For the record, as the executive producer of Basketball Wives, I do not condone the extremely mean behavior that took place on tonight’s episode. The complete disregard and disrespect shown toward people suffering from cancer has made me sick to my stomach and I am extremely upset and disappointed at what I have seen. The five minutes of fame isn’t worth it. My heart goes out to @brandimaxwell and the countless cancer patients and survivors who witnessed this reckless behavior.”
Brandi also called the comment “disrespectful,” when she spoke with RadarOnline.com.
“I’m trying to be strong, but she is so disrespectful. She knows I’m struggling and would give anything to have more children. It’s unfortunate she stooped to that level,” Brandi said, later adding, “I’ve never met a woman who is so heartless. She is nasty and disgusting to me.”
Sundy’s clique — Jackie Christie and Brittish Williams — were also shocked by Sundy’s comments and fans became so infuriated, they started an online petition to get Sundy off the show!
Sigh. As we see in the sneak peek for next week’s Basketball Wives LA Season 3 reunion special, Sundy apologizes to Draya for mentioning her son. Will she apologize for her comment to Brandi? And will this comment be the make-or-break decision for Shaunie to keep her on the show? Guess we’ll have to tune in to see!
Basketball Wives LA Season 3 reunion special airs Monday, April 28 at 8 p.m. ET on VH1.
