Shaunie O’Neal, Malaysia Pargo, and Jackie Christie recently stopped by FOX’s The Preachers, to promote the new season of Basketball Wives LA but ended up having some real advice for fellow basketball wife, Ayesha Curry.
The hosts asked the reality stars about Curry’s, since deleted, controversial Tweet, in which she wrote, “I’ve lost all respect, sorry, this is absolutely rigged for money…Or ratings, I’m not sure which. I won’t be silent. Just saw it live. Sorry.”
O’Neal expressed concern that Curry jeopardized her husband, Stephen Curry’s career by Tweeting out such a bold statement. Shaunie said, “I personally didn’t like her Tweet. I don’t know Ayesha Curry,” she continued, “I don’t believe in, she’s a woman, she’s a wife, be quiet and sit at home. I don’t believe in that, I feel like she should express her opinion but maybe be smarter about it. Was it rigged when your husband was winning, or just when he was losing?” Oop.
Malaysia, ex-wife of Jannero Pargo, gave Curry the benefit of the doubt, “She’s human, and we get in our feelings. Our husbands are on the court, and we’re their biggest fans. So, she was just in the moment, I don’t think she even thought about, ’I’m offending someone.'” Shaunie didn’t buy it and wasted no time checking Malaysia for the comment. “That’s the problem, she didn’t think.” Don’t come after the NBA when Shaunie’s around, apparently!
In an interview with People Magazine, Curry expressed regret for her Tweet, saying, “I regret the way that I voiced how hurt I was. I felt hurt for [Steph], and I didn’t mean to offend anybody. Obviously, what I wrote is not what I think about what he does for a living.”
What do you think of what the Basketball Wives had to say about Ayesha Curry?
