The vicious fight Maxiell had with Shaquille O'Neal's ex-wife was the season finale. Maxiell defended her actions to Radar. "I respect Shaunie and her movement and everything she did to help create and be a part of Basektball Wives. I respect where she comes from," she said. "But I'm a Southern belle. We aren't too shy of how we feel and what we think. You either love us or you hate us. We are big bright sunshine. So full of life. If you piss us off, we're a whole other different person."

Meanwhile, Maxiell also revealed to Radar that she and her husband, pro baller Jason Maxiell, have separated but she is not dating. "I don't know the rules to that when you're separated," she admitted. "What is wise, what is not wise. Plus I've been working so much that I haven't really had the time."
