vh1's 'basketball wives' (season 4 cast)*The ladies of “Basketball Wives” know their worth and have demanded raises.

According to TMZ, Shaunie O’Neal, Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman and Suzie Ketcham threatened to walk off the show if the executives didn’t issue a raise.

To ensure some leverage, the ladies refused to sign contracts for season 5 until their demands are met. However, word is that the show’s executives told the ladies no raises will be issued and if they didn’t accept it, they’d be replaced.

But really, what would “Basketball Wives” be without the main ladies?

Until they really go on strike, production schedules have been issued.

Dum da dum dum!
