*“The Basketball Wives” franchise is getting a makeover.
Shaunie O’Neal heard the complaints of viewers, screaming about the cattiness between the ladies. So she said the show, at least the L.A. version is going to get one.
“How ’bout a complete makeover”? Shaunie responded when a “BBW: L.A.” viewer wrote that the series is boring.
“PLEASE CANCEL THIS SHOW!!!! I JUST CAN’T,” the viewer posted.
Kicking the show as a whole is not quite in question yet, despite the drop in ratings.
She hasn’t revealed what the makeover would look like, but it’s a possibility that a whole new cast will be introduced. Some of her followers vibed with that idea.
“I think we’re all down for a complete makeover… & stopped watching in Season 1,” posted one Twitter user.
As far as the Miami show is concerned, there’s rumors Jennifer Williams and Royce Reed won’t be coming back.

*The skeletons are out of Evelyn Lozada’s closet.
The reality star and battered woman sat with Iyanla Vanzant to chat about her life, love and now failed marriage.
From her tragically childish behavior on “Basketball Wives” and her broken union with former bestie Jennifer Williams; to the family history of violence and division, Iyanla helped break down all the baggage Evelyn’s been holding on to from one phase of life to the other.
“[I was] going from 0 to 10. I always say I don’t have a medium,” said Evelyn. “That’s how every woman in my family dealt with conflict. We didn’t sit down and do this! That’s how my life was. That’s how I grew up.”
She admitted becoming the success she is heightened her problems as pressure began to build. But being at the top is hard work and lonely.
“I don’t trust anybody. So many things have happened in my life, just feeling stabbed in the back, taken advantage of.”
But since getting a minor wake-up call about her behavior. Chad Johnson’s daughters found her outbursts on the show outrageous. So she quickly began to clean up her act and strive to be a better woman.
In the meantime, her worst fears of being cheated on and getting divorced quickly came true after Chad allegedly head butted her in their driveway.
Evelyn admitted seeing signs of trouble in the marriage before it even got started, but she pushed through it anyway.

*After all the hoopla and drama, Jennifer Williams decided to drop the lawsuit against Nia Crooks, who slapped her during a season 4 episode of “Basketball Wives.”
When the whole incident went down, tensions were high among the ladies and Jen refused to take the B.S. She slapped her back, but with a lawsuit and criminal charges.
Since the reunion episode that brought Jen and Evelyn Lozada back together in tears, it looks like things have changed.

“It was wrong on all accounts. We take it very serious, but I wouldn’t want to see any of y’all go to jail over a mistake,” Shaunie O’Neal said on the show.
While it looks like hearts have softened, it’s certainly possible that Jen changed her mind after witnessing the quick crumble of Meeka Claxton’s career as a reality star after she filed suit against a show peer.
Regardless, Jen reminded fans that Nia still has to deal with the law.
“FYI- dropping a civil lawsuit doesn’t mean you don’t have to deal with the criminal charges!” she tweeted.
*Hmmm, looks like there’s been some hanky panky going on right under now ex “Basket Ball Wife” Jennifer Williams’ nose and she was clueless.
Williams’ estranged husband, former NBA player Eric Williams, allegedly had a secret child in 2011 … and now the baby mama wants him to pony up some child support ASAP.
Tavia Serena Cannon filed a Complaint for Support in PA last week, she claims she had a child with Eric in October 2011. Cannon says she makes $300/week babysitting and wants Williams to fork over some cash and medical coverage for the kid.
Here’s the rub … at the time the baby was allegedly conceived — Jan/Feb 2011 — the former NBAer was still married to Jennifer … who didn’t file for divorce until June 2011.
Sources close to Jennifer tell TMZ this news comes as a shock. They claim the “BB Wife” had NO CLUE about the child. Their divorce is still pending in a NJ court.
Calls to Eric Williamss rep have not been returned.
