OG Believes Overwhelming Fan Support Kept Her from Being Pushed off ‘Basketball Wives’

OG said she was treated unfairly by other “Basketball Wives” stars.

OG received a lot of support from “Basketball Wives” fans after the recent season. Although the show has been known for past violent moments that involve multiple castmembers, OG was accused of being too aggressive and violent. In fact, Shaunie O’Neal said that OG pushed her when she attempted to prevent an altercation between OG and Feby Torres. When it was time to film the reunion, multiple cast members said they weren’t comfortable filming with OG anymore.

OG wasn’t even allowed to sit on the stage with the others.

When she was asked how she felt about this, she said she believed she was treated differently because she’s dark-skinned.

And when it comes to violence, she hasn’t actually gotten violent with anyone on the show. So there was no reason she wasn’t allowed to film with the other women.

The overwhelming support from “Basketball Wives” viewers may have kept OG on the show.

This immediately resulted in a lot of backlash. Many of the viewers agreed with OG and they called out the other women on social media. The backlash was so thick that Shaunie had to address the situation in a special for the show. And many accused Shaunie and the others of trying to push OG off the show.

However, OG was not fired. And some suspect the overwhelming support she received on social media is why she was not iced out.

OG seems to agree.

Recently, a Twitter user discussed the situation. And they said that OG was “coded aggressive” as a way to make the colorism less obvious. But when OG said she was the victim of colorism by the others on the show, most of the cast didn’t support her. And the icing out didn’t stop until many people supported OG on social media.

Check out the tweet here.

In response to this, OG wrote, “I find this to be accurate..I thoroughly appreciate the support..❤️ ✊🏿 ❤️ ”

    Oh Shaunie was definitely about to get OG up out of there. It’s messed up too because everyone knows Evelyn is the most violent person there. And shoot, Malaysia just threw a table at Jenn a year ago. They need to stop with the double standards.

      Bull crap OG was always telling everyone what she would do to them. She’s there because she played the Black card. In truth OG is insecure about the other ladies that’s why shes always going after everyone. I wish she hadn’t come back.

        Sorry sis, but throwing a wine bottle at someone and chasing someone down with a bamboo stick is way more violent than telling someone what you will do to them. Evelyn is the most violent one on the show. That can’t be disputed. Malaysia is in second place since she threw a table at Jennifer. 🤷🏿‍♀️

    It’s pretty obvious I think. OG was on her way out but the backlash kept her from being fired. Shaunie had already started the narrative about how OG was the outkast and she needed to make some changes to the group.

    You can say what you want but OG’s first appearance, turned me against her. She started out pissed because Tristian left her party. She felt it was her place to
    make Tristian feel bad for leaving at which point Tristian stated she had a husband to go home to.

    OG was extremely abrasive at the start, before even knowing any of the ladies and for no reason, this is most likely why all of this controversy erupted. Why have so much pride in talking to one of the ladies exes when you have a whole man who won’t even commit to you after several years? How about fix that situationship… Then, why would you out a private family dynamic in the middle of an argument, mostly because she was about to lose that argument. It’s clear she was looking foolish and used that information as a weapon. Her behavior was classless throughout most of that season. I can handle pushback, drink throwing, even being chased with a bamboo stick, but when you start praying about peoples v-ginas, using the gods for wickedness and talking about breaking every single persons jaw, yea you are just WACK and LAME to me. I will tell you this, ANYONE who ever says to ME that they can kill me with their bare hands but don’t feel like it, IS NOT LEAVING THAT ROOM UNTIL I’m DEAD….That’s a “Brooklyn Born and Raised” fact. Picking on little 100 lb Feby does not make you gangsta, it makes you a LAME BULLY. I hope everyone refuses to film with Toe-G, cause in all actuality if she is so dope and has all of this going for her and doesn’t need to be around ladies she has previously accused of colorism, then why is she back on the show? I’ll tell you why: cause even after all the talking and all the bashing, that girl STILL NEEDS THE MONEY. Otherwise, keep “your integrity” and don’t be on the show. It’s that simple.

      I agree completely with what you said. If she has so much going for her, why would she want to work with people she knows truly doesn’t want to be around her? She should leave the show, I know I will not watch it again if she’s on it.

      I agree with you wholeheartedly Miss T. Plus I feel that OG, because of her Nigerian Birth, thinks this makes her better than other Blacks or she would not keep bringing it up.

    You Evelyn stans need to cut the sh-t. Y’all are seriously on here clutching pearls about what OG has done yet in the same keystrokes, downplaying all the violence Evelyn has done on the show. It’s pathetic. OG is far from perfect but y’all really need to stop insulting people’s intelligence on the internet. There is nothing that OG has done that has been worse than what Evelyn has done. There isn’t a petition to remove OG from the show because she’s too violent. OG isn’t the one who nearly got the show canceled because sponsors thought they may need to back off because people were calling for a boycott. Those who have been watching since season one know that Evelyn and Tami have both nearly gotten this show canceled because of their actions. People wanted Tami gone when she stole that woman’s purse. People wanted the show canceled after Evelyn threw a whole wine bottle at a black woman. Evelyn is out here being racist but it’s OG who you’re offended by? Stop with the bullsh-t. I surely hope it’s not black women on here wearing a cape for Evelyn. You lack self love and common sense if that’s the case. And I know y’all aren’t saying OG needs the check and can’t leave when Evelyn has been around for YEARS. She had to come back after the baseball player didn’t work out, too. Stop getting on here and playing stupid. To make a big deal out of OG’s words and downplay Evelyn’s actual violence just gives the colorism claims more validation.

      👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 You are absolutely correct!! Evelyn has jumped over tables, been in a fight every season she was on and so much more. Evelyn was scared of OG because she had finally met her match and wanted to paint her as being violent, no ma’am OG has never physically attacked anyone. I agree with the above comment, I really hope black women are not being fooled by EvilLyn and her BS. Now all of a sudden she’s “Afro-Latina” 🙄 the only thing “African” about her is the men in her bed. She’s a snake and mean girl, Shaunie is not far behind and should be careful surrounding herself with the likes of that bully!!
