Oh my. This is good. I mean, when I say this is good, y'all, this. Is. Good. It speaks volumes to the characters of the women from the original Basketball Wives. VOLUMES! As you know, Shaunie "Nostrils" O'Neal, after a face-saving attempt to seek counseling from her pastor at the end of last season to end the show's violent ways, is bringing back her two explosive, bullying best friends Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman.
Evelyn and Tami want to use the fifth season for redemption after all of their heinous behavior in seasons past. Well, they are off to a great start, I tell you! The two ladies are hoping to revamp their images, and Shaunie and Suzie "Both Sides of her Mouth" Ketcham are also along for the ride. Guess how the four ladies are planning to show that they've changed for the better?? Why, they're planning a walk out if they don't get their salaries hiked! They truly have changed.

Filming for the new season began last week, but the women have yet to finish negotiating their contracts. According to sources close to the show, all of the "ladies" want huge pay raises, but the network isn't willing to accommodate. Apparently, the foursome started filming in hopes of aiding in negotiations, but VH1 is refusing to budge.
TMZ is reporting that Shaunie, Evelyn, Tami, and Suzie are ready to walk out of filming next week if their demands aren't met. I mean, is Christmas coming early for us? Stay strong, VH1! If these women walk out because they don't get a bigger paycheck, we all win. We can take solace in knowing these women won't be getting more money for bad behavior, AND we may not have to watch them on the fifth season. Can you imagine? It would be like the perfect storm of awesomeness.
Of course, I won't allow myself to indulge in the fantasy for too long because VH1 will likely buckle to the bullies, much like all of their former co-stars. Or, less likely, the women will decide to continue filming with the salary that VH1 initially proposed. Please. Who am I kidding? That option will NEVER happen! You've got to love the entitled nature of these women. Wait. No. Actually, you don't.
