At one point Shaunie O’neal was embarrassed from Basketball Wives and the negative images of women of color that had become indicative of each show, now she is parlaying the success of said negative image into a major motion picture. To help with her efforts she’s recruited Tracey Edmonds and Elizabeth Hunter; contacting Tracey via a tweet!
Hunter wrote the script for the movie “Jumping the Broom” which Tracey produced. With Shaunie leading the way that’s a Diva Dollar Trifecta! I’m not the only one who thinks so, the movie has already been picked up by Fox Searchlight.
The movie will basically be the big screen version of Basketball wives. The story will be centered around a young woman who follows her boyfriend’s basketball career to Miami after he’s drafted. We get to watch her life as it transforms from around the way girl to basketball wife and all the drama that comes along with it.
Edmonds appreciates the opportunity the big screen will provide to this story,
”The beauty of a feature film is that we’ll have the ability to dig much deeper into the stories and characters that come from this very colorful world and create a very juicy, action-packed narrative,”
Next are the big questions. Who will play the male and female leads, when is the release date, and what songs will be on the soundtrack……and most important how many fight scenes will be in it. Stay tuned!Read more...
That’s right, despite the headlines and rumors the reality star couple is just taking a time out from their show.
This isn’t a rumor, it’s a fact from the mouths of the couple themselves. During E!’s upfront presentation they stopped to make a statement and address the rumors.
Our show is not canceled,
Lamar and I have just chosen to take a break this summer. I feel like we’ve been on a whirlwind and doing back-to-back shows. We just want to take a little time off for Lamar to be with family time, kids, basketball, Olympics, you never know. We have a lot on our plate right now.
Odom then chimed in,
We just want to be happy, We’ll take our time and we’ll get back to it when it’s time.
The original report stated that they were pulling the plug on the show and that another show would be launching with Khloe, no Odom.
Odom’s recent trade from the Lakers to the Mavericks has ended him up on the unemployment line so the focus needs to be getting his basketball career on track. There is no time for cameras, s3x swings and Kanye when you have a real job that pays millions, or used to pay millions. After his eleven season run with the Lakers he was traded to the Maverick where he had his worse season ever. After clashing with Mark Cuban he was put on the inactive list and then booted from the team. Reports are that he has moved back to L.A., hired a personal trainer and is focused on getting his on court mojo back. I don’t expect to see him back on TV until he retires.Read more...
