VH1 Fires Three “Basketball Wives”
New casting will be in the works on Basketballs Wives'. VH1 producers will be giving the girls their walking papers any day now to drop what they called “dead weight” from the show.
People connected with production tell TMZ, Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed and Kesha Nichols (from left to right) got the chop and will be replaced next season. It's unclear who's in line to take their spots.
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. They fired Kesha becuase she was just too boring. A rep for VH1 tells TMZ, “We don't comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.”
