"Basketball Wives" Castmembers Get THE BOOT: Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed & Kesha Nichols AXED

And so it continues.  When Shaunie O'Neal said a few days ago that 3 castmembers needed to be let go in order for the show to sustain a more positive vibe--it seems what she really meant was she wanted to get rid of those who weren't causing enough drama.

 

Deets inside on the three chicks that just got the axe inside...

According to reports, newbie Kesha Nichols, Royce Reed & Jennifer Williams, have all received their walking papers. 

Reasons being?  Supposedly, Shaunie wanted to get rid of the dead weight.  I guess in this case dead weight equates non controversial.  We pretty much saw it coming with Jen.  Since she introduced lawsuits into the mix and we all saw where that got former castmate Meeka Claxton

As for Kesha, she simply didn't bring enough to the table for viewers to care apparently.  And the rest of the cast often refused to tape with Royce, and the fact she still is barred from saying her baby's daddy Dwight Howard's name on the show, it was reportedly becoming a problem.

But we do find it interesting that Shaunie claimed to be trying extremely hard to push the show in a more positive direction for next season, yet she keeps the very people who push the show in he negative direction.  I'm not a "BBW" expert or anything as I can barely get through watching any episode, but it just seems there are far more "negative' people on this show than harmless Kesha and arguably annoying Royce.

If Shaunie just wanted to keep controversy, then no need to lie about it otherwise.  Just sayin'. 

Their replacements should be interesting.  But with certain folks still in the mix--including instigating ass Suzy--we're expecting the same sh*t, different cast. VH1 has yet to confirm the three firings.

The Randomness:

1.  R. Kelly owes over $4.8 mill in back taxes dating all the way back to 2005.  STORY

She's not looking for

She's not looking for positivity. She's loving the drama. Shaunie probably scared what Evenlyn and Tammie would do to her if they got the boot. Drama loves drama. Everything you saying in the article is so true.

I agree with most people

I agree with most people that: Royce is boring, Kesha is too soft-spoken and Jen should want to leave...but Keeping Evelyn, Suzi, and Tami just reinforces how full of shit Shaunie really is! Really? I hope more sponsors pull their money and support. Who wants to watch this shit now?

Um, boo. Jen and Kesha were

Um, boo. Jen and Kesha were the least trashy elements of that show. I'll no longer be interested. I actually liked Jen; I hate the way the show ended for her. I wish she could've ended it on an elevated note. Instead, they provide some bull*ish lie detector results claiming she's jealous of Ev's wretched relationship. Last slice of pizza nobody wants, indeed. Jen never should have made up with Ev on the reunion -OR- given her the satisfaction of a "sit-down/talk." All Ev did was embarrass and disrespect Jen once she was finally granted an audience. That's why Ev was in such tears & frustration when Jen wouldn't "discuss" with her the first time, and just walked away. Hell, Jen should've kept walking away. Leave the show with some dignity! Trust me; I know bullies. Never give them that chance to "hash out" things with you, because all they really want to do is verbally abuse you. If it's been established that the two of you are not friends and have nothing more to discuss, keep it moving; don't grant them an audience. But, unfortunately... well... you know how it went down.

Everyone has an opinion, I

Everyone has an opinion, I don't normally do this but, witout the drama thr would b no show. Keisha no ones interested. Royce sorry but not interested either, jenn basically fired herself she was barely involved. It is what it is. Stop blamming shaunie, I'm sure at the end of the day she has no say so on the matter. However, y should people b on the show that's not really involved? Thr just tryna b thr for other interest, bottom line. The rest of the cast do y'all and good luck!

At the end of the day its

At the end of the day its clear that Shaunie is just here for the money and all that bullshit she was talkin about moving in the right direction meant moving with the flow of the money. The show is trash and the truly respectable Basketball Wives don't even associate with these biotches. The castle is crumbling and she along with Evelyn and Tami will forever have this show as to how people view them the rest of their lives and its clearly not good. #theword CLICK THE LOGO...We finally launched out first episodes.

This has to be the worst

This has to be the worst bunch of shoes these ladies have been photographed in! Shaunie, you are indeed a mess... A rather HOT one. This show is an absolute joke! I was just getting interested to start watching again in the hopes that Ev and Jen would make for some good camera time. I liked when those two were friends, and it seemed like they were well on their way to getting back there. Now that they no longer have to film together, their little make up was pointless.

Shanie needs to stop fronting

Shanie needs to stop fronting and admit she likes the hoodrat nonesense her "Basketball-hookers-hoes-and other non affiliated broads" reality show promotes. If Evelyn is still int he cast and doesn't need to go, this show doesn't need to be watched! This show is one of the things wrong with America today.

Agreed. I would love to see

Agreed. I would love to see Jen with her own spin-off, or as an addition to a spin-off with NeNe Leakes or something. Yes, NeNe has been a big, hot ghetto mess in the past, but she has made strides. Maybe that should be the show: Making Strides-- a show about second chances... about women building their brands while improving mentally and spiritually. Now That would be worth a watch!

I am angry that my pastor

I am angry that my pastor Bishop Ulmer was on this mess and sooted up Faithful Central. I'm embarrassed that he and our church were made to look like they condone violence and bullying. I'm torn, we are all God's children but I'm not sure if I want to associate with a church that cares more about celebrity bank accounts than the word of Jesus.

In a sense, I'm surprised by

In a sense, I'm surprised by those who received the axe and in another, I'm not. It is possible that those women asked to walk away from the show and were released from their contracts. Jennifer is working on building her brand and removing herself from the drama is the smartest move. Fighting and lawsuits on national tv can be detrimental to the future of any brand, just ask Shaunie and Evelyn about all of the sponsors that they've lost. Kesha, as well, probably asked to walk away for the same reason. She was constantly humiliated and targeted by Kenya and Tami. She already has her own business and life and not interested in expensing any of that for potential fame and monetary gain. And Royce, honestly, not interested. I'm sure she'll take the time to work on her acting career and her son. The drama will undoubtedly continued.

Til the end of time it will

Til the end of time it will never make sense how a former wife has head up the azz of her former husbands jumpoff who hooked up with him during that marriage and basically told the wife F-U you non factor. Where they do that at and I need something besides soap operas and even then them chicks always have the side eye on each other. Tami done lost her S2S gig lying on Jen by having blind loyalty to Rent-A-Cooch

This is not so much about BBW

This is not so much about BBW and the Executive Producers, because the decision to boot those 3 off the show wasn't made at that level. I believe that Shaunie had good intentions and wanted to change the direction of the show but the bottom line is she doesn't have to power to make those decisions. At the end of the day she is a pawn as well and I wouldn't be surprised if she quits the show soon as well. Quite frankly Vh1 in general is just a toxic network. Mob Wives and Love & Hip-Hop is just as trashy as BBW. If ya'll want to be angry with anybody be angry with VH1 Corporate and Viacom!! It's so easy for black women to bash other black women as in this case assuming that Shaunie actually holds all the cards. She doesn't and never did and never will. She herself in the bigger scheme of things is a real Non-Mutha-Fuckin' Factor!!

You might be right (about

You might be right (about Shaunie not having as much power as we assumed), but at the end of the day... Shaunie proved herself to be just as raggedy and immature as the rest of the cast. Her words and actions showcased quite enough.

Shaunie you are so

Shaunie you are so @ssssssssssssssssss backwords! First you on the re-union promoting positivity and then you go and fire the women who want to exude positivity! Bottom line is you are a hood rate, who happen to get lucky to start a show and don't know how to manage your business in a constructive way. Get your head out of Evelyns and Tami's a$$ and save your soul and career stupid! They are going to be the downfall of your business going haywire, because not matter how much positive promotion and eating lunch with star jones you chicks do, we all know its a front! Hell no i will not be supporting that bull$hit of a show of yours. You had nothing to do with the lawsuite, Nia was in the wrong. You are such a wack businesswomen with not type of professional knowledge. I think you just dug your grave for your wack a$$ show. Meanwhile, Jen is going to remain building her empire that she started! Back stabber!

I am pissed... Shaunie wants

I am pissed... Shaunie wants the show to be more positive... But you just got rid of Royce, who has probably been the most positive person ALL season, Jen who's only issue was Ev, and Kesha who no one got a chance to get to know because she was bully by Tami the whole time. I'm definitely NOT watching BBW next season... SMH

It is impossible to fall out

It is impossible to fall out of love. Love is such a powerful emotion, that once it envelops you it does not depart. True love is eternal. If you think that you were once in love, but fell out of it, then it wasn't love you were in. There are no 'exit' signs in love, there is only an 'on' ramp. (( M_i_x_e_d_M_a_t_c_h_i_n_g. c_0_m )) Lots of my friends found their lovers through the se'rvice. You may have a try... ;) Don‘t try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.
