This season has been nothing but violence and drama, with bottle breaking, fist throwing, face slapping and a lot of ‘b*tches.’
Regular viewers have decided to pull their support and boycott the show until the violence subsided.
“I feel that all of them take responsibility for what their actions are,” Shaunie, the show’s producer, said, arguing that cast members use the show as a mirror and they don’t like everything they see of themselves. They do, however, take what they’ve seen and use it to improve themselves. However, she still believes the show was a success.
“We take responsibility. After talking and seeing ourselves this season, this season was bananas,” said Shaunie. “It definitely was a lot more bad than good. Even when we did have the good, the bad seemed to outweigh it. ”
In the past, the producer expressed her concern that the show lacked substance and was a far cry from her original vision. But her dream may come to fruition for the next season as the network promised to show more positive images during the show.
VH1 also announced that it’s down with the initiative to change the direction of the show.
“We at VH1 agree with and support Shaunie and the show producers’ “no excessive physical confrontations” policy on the series moving forward,” the network said in a statement. “Shaunie has been a strong advocate for a more balanced approach to the show and we, along with our producing partners at Shed Media, are all in agreement about moving forward with that goal.”
