The “Basketball Wives” ladies are not playing games. They want a bigger check or they are prepared to walk. TMZ reports,Â Shaunie O’Neal,Â Evelyn Lozada,Â Tami RomanÂ andÂ Suzie KetchamÂ do NOT have locked contracts and are seeking more money. The “Wives” are renegotiating their contracts and they all want major pay raises, claiming the show does quite well for the network.
VH1 is refusing to pay up on the more cash request. Execs had made it clear before taping that salary increases would not happen. They said if anyone was unhappy with payment they could be replaced.
The ladies have began filming in hopes that a deal will be worked out. A deal has not been reached and the “Wives” are planning to walk out next week if VH1 can’t agree to the terms.
