Basketball Wives LA Stars Get Fired
There have been rumors over the past few weeks amongst reality TV fans that the new installment of Basketball Wives LA is a straight Zzzzzzzzzz, and it’s showing in the ratings.
So, it looks like the good folks over VH1 and Shaunie O’Neal have decided to revamp the cast completely!
Via TMZ reports:
“Basketball Wives: L.A.” axed four of its six cast members — and TMZ has learned the catalyst was when Gloria Govan shut producers out of her nuptials to L.A. Lakers star Matt Barnes.
Sources connected to the show tell TMZ the producers are getting rid of Gloria, Laura Govan, Malaysia Pargo and Brooke Bailey because the wives, especially Gloria, weren’t allowing “all of their reality to be filmed.”
We’re told the breaking point came when Gloria (who is known for her feisty ways) jetted off to Vegas to marry Barnes — and didn’t even let the show know about it. Our sources say the producers felt extremely disrespected by her actions and made the decision to clean house.
Our sources tell us the producers haven’t told the wives they’re getting fired yet, but are already looking for new women to fill their spots.
Draya Michele and Jackie Christie will be the only returning members.
We gotta admit this season has been the biggest snooze-fest season EVER. We’re glad that Shaunie is finally listening to the fans and giving them the real drama and fawkery they want.
Who do you think should get added to the cast? Who should stay?
