The issue between Shaunie O'Neal and Tami Roman has been going on for years, and until now, people are reminding Shaunie of it. After posting about loyalty, her followers decided to slam her for her hypocrisy, as they think she previously "turned" on Tami. 


On her Instagram Stories, Shaunie O'Neal posted a quote in black and white about how she can't wait until loyalty and morals become universal trends again. She puts a bold comment right below it, adding "for real!!"

Shaunie and Tami are co-stars on "Basketball Wives," and while they were the two closest friends on set before, things took a sour turn. It all began when Tami revealed that Jennifer Williams told her that Evelyn Lozada slept with Shaunie's ex. 

Turned tables

In the end, O'Neal ended up holding a grudge on Roman, while reuniting with Lozada and Williams, who were more directly involved in the incident anyway. 


This was quite unusual because O'Neal would previously call Tami a "sweetheart" and Evelyn a "bully" in interviews, but ultimately, the tables have turned and now Shaunie and Evelyn are a lot closer. 

The two even embarked on a luxury vacation to the Bahamas with more of their friends, leaving Tami behind. 

Publicity stunt turned sour

Thanks to this turn of events, people are now slamming Shaunie for betraying a true friend of hers, who wanted nothing more but to always be honest with her. The statement she wrote was something they felt she had no right to speak about, as she herself was not being loyal to a close friend of hers. 


People took to the comment section of a fan page directed towards "Basketball Wives," saying:

"@coorshenry: She's not even [a] loyal friend to Tami. Sorry but that's how I see it."


"@boi421: Girl bye. You never can tell Evelyn when she's wrong regarding your "other friends."

"@charlese_butterfly: Coming from someone who doesn't know what LOYALTY means. The nerve... she must be talking about herself."

People feel as if Shaunie's sudden closeness to Lozada is a huge publicity stunt to get more people to watch their show. They called the reality TV stars out for their "fakeness," and slammed them for being disrespectful to Tami who wanted nothing more but true friendship.
