Jennifer, Kesha, And Royce Fired From Basketball Wives?

Submitted by on June 15, 2012 – 8:41 pm15 Comments

In a recent interview, Basketball Wives executive producer and star Shaunie O’Neal revealed that the franchise wouldn’t be able to continue unless three members of the cast were given the boot (I told you about that here). My guess as to who the three were, Jennifer Williams, Tami Roman, and Evelyn Lozada, was apparently a little off base. Reportedly, Tami and Evelyn will not be joining Jennifer on the reality TV unemployment line, but Royce Reed and newbie Kesha Nichols will. According to TMZ:

“We’re told Royce was cut because she wasn’t legally allowed to talk about Dwight due to a 2009 gag order, blocking her from discussing her ex in any way. The other girls on the show had also decided to ostracize her, so Royce couldn’t shoot scenes with the rest of the cast.

As for the others — producers think Jennifer’s too big a liability after suing Nia Crooks for slapping her on the show. And Kesha was just too boring.”

Allegedly, the ladies will be given their walking papers any day now as BBW producers consider them “dead weight.” The trio will be replaced by some new faces, although no word yet on who those new faces will be. Both Jennifer and Royce are original members of the show, so their absence will most likely be felt by the show’s fans. As for Kesha…well, she spent so much time running from people during season 4, the only thing BBW viewers got to see was the back of her damn head anyway.
