*Shaunie O’Neal of “Basketball Wives” spoke to the crew of NYC radio station Power 105’s “Breakfast Club” to give fans the inside scoop about the new season (3) of the show. And yes,  Royce Reed will be back for another healthy serving of drama.

“I did think Royce was like the wild card at first and she kind of was,” Shaunie admitted. “We opened up season 1, and she was doing the booty dance and after she did that it was when the world saw it and had stuff to say.

Shaunie added that Reed can’t talk about Dwight Howard, however she has established her own fan base:  “There are some people out there that love Royce.”

As far as Evelyn Lozada,  O’neal  did say that despite the rumors, Evelyn is going to be on the show for another season as well, and confirmed that everyone sighed up for season three.

Supposedly, Evelyn is asking to be paid $20,000 an episode while each of the other ladies is making $7,500 a shoot. Get out of town girl!

But she may have reason for asking about a ridiculous raise, as she is working on her own gig with finance Chad Johnson. But nothing is confirmed.
