"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

I just think that Shaunie was

I just think that Shaunie was wrong for dragging her Pastor into this mess. The Pastor should have thought twice before doing it, but I guess he thought he was helping. I'm sure he appreciates the direction she decided to take with his advice (insert sarcasm here). When he said she might have to leave some people in the valley, I'm almost sure he wasn't talking about the non-violent, semi-positive people. And to berate someone for pressing ccriminal charges on someone who commited a crime is crazy. Everyone knows that when you put your hands on someone, you're running the risk of being sued and/or thrown in jail. I liked watching this show for the fashion and the "lifestyle." But these ladies have absolutely no class. And I definitely can't respect Shaunie anymore. I'm done.

Excuse me but Pastors are men

Excuse me but Pastors are men first, then Pastors. That says a lot about who he is. TV time was apparently what he saw as most important. They could have had that conversation "off" camera. They didn't. His congregation should be concerned. I'm not surprised at all.

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... ;)

It's business, Tami and

It's business, Tami and Evelyn are making Shaunie money so she will be a fool to cut them from the show. Poor Jen, like they say never bite the hand that feeds you. All I have to say this country is really in bad place when we celebrate and reward ignorance. A few years ago it was make a sex type you become rich and famous (Kim K/Paris Hilton). Now all you to do and is get on some whack reality show, act like a complete ass, and your rich. We talk so much about the youth future but yet and still we continue to watch reality shows like BBW, RHOA, BGC and the list goes on. Stop watching the crap and the shows will get canceled.

Hope this show gets cancelled after the next season. Sometimes enough is enough. At this point, the show really needs to change its title. Its pathetic now.

VH1, Shed Media, and Shaunie

VH1, Shed Media, and Shaunie Oneal after all the backlash and boycotting is tellling we the viewers once again "F" ya'll. The minute ya'll fell for the old switch and bait they knew they had an ignorant audience. So Kudo's to the remaining fans of this mess. You deserve whatever garbage they deliver to you. So much for the promise of balance. Feel sorry for the next 3 victims they bring on board. Best of luck to Jen, Royce, and Keisha your positive efforts and mature thinking will deliver you good fortune; HOWEVER, the wicked witches (Tami, Ev, and Shaunie) will definantely reap what they have sown (misery, meaness, violence, and threats).

hmmm...so we're kickin off the lady's that are drama free, but yet we call ourselves advocates for anti-bullying this makes so much sense. Good move (sarcasm). All the ladies that are left are perfect role models for young girls and those women that are on go, all females should aspire to be like these ladies(more sarcasm). smh

Shani makes me sick she fakes

Shani makes me sick she fakes as if she is above all the drama trying to fake class by presenting her credentials instead. She is a ghetto hott mess, just like Tammi and Ev. She acted as if she ever truly considering cancelling the show. I knew that she would never, its her money maker. I am not mad at her for getting $$$ just be honest. She is always there when the bullying is being planned and executed... hence, she is participating. I can't believe that she kept Kenya, that chick is deranged. I am thru with BBW

We really should promise not

We really should promise not to watch this crap....Shaunie is fake and she is right everyone thinks when she walks into a meeting she is a hot ghetto ass mess.....Shaunie if you want quality tv have a sit down with Shonda Rimes a black female that has 3 shows on ABC....But then again lets look at shaunies history she met shaq while she was in a relationship with one of shaqs friends and left him for the MONEY......that is what she is about........That calm, cool level headed person is not who she is...She identifies with EVil LYnn and Tami's ghetto ass because she is them.....just scared to show it......BOYCOTT THIS SHOW!

Basically if u can't handle the bulling move on. Any new girl that comes on this show, she better know what she's in for. Shaunie is the ring leader, she's clearly not going to tell these women anything. Too many ppl are still watching this garbage and that's why they keep Tami and Evelyn coming back. Money ova morales!

Royce said MONTHS ago that

Royce said MONTHS ago that she was not returning... so, she quit. Funny though, the three people doing the most positive OFF of the show, is getting the axe. So, the show will contain just the 3 bullies and Kenya? Yea. Good luck w/ that!

You loved everybit of it. Stop acting like you were so upset when you did as much back biting as all the rest!!!!!!!!............ So,sad...... WOW! I guess that's how it works-the bad people get praised.

Not surprised by this! I've

Not surprised by this! I've been saying from the beginning tht Shaunie is exactly what she called herself on the show! A hot ghetto mess! She let go the ppl who were basically attacked on this show! I knew Jen would probably be booted bcuz of the law suit as for Keisha she probably wanted to leave as for Royce Shaunie never liked her. I guess next season the attack is gonna be on Kenya. Shaunie goes along with everything Evelyn and Tami does. You can tell this entire season they were jealous of Jen. If she had any since she would get an entire new cast.

Kenya stabbed her husband

Kenya stabbed her husband infront of her children.It is very clear that she has a screw loose. I secretly want Kenya to beat them both at the same damn time.

Shaunie is a so full of shit

Shaunie is a so full of shit that I can smell it thru the phone. She claims to care about the images she's putting out, yet gets rid of the 3 that caused the least drama. So I guess now that Tami and Evelyn dont have Kesha and Jen to bully, theyre gonna turn on each other. Ridiculous.....absolutely pathetic. This show is coonery at its finest.

Unfortunately, people will

Unfortunately, people will continue to support BBW and Chrissy Lampkin new show. All these women are abusive and should not be on television but arrested: Chrissy Lampkin, Tammi, Evelyn for there physical altercations on their shows. They would all do well behind bars where they belong. Evelyn, Tammi and Chrissy Lampkin are all older version of the young women on the bad girls club. There isn't any difference. Shaunie only cares about ratings. I already stopped watching both BBW and Love and Hip Hop. -- No more!

I swear on everything I will

I swear on everything I will never Ever watch this show ever again!!! Shaunie is so full of crap!! PLEASE BLACK DON'T SUPPORT THIS BULL, WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS. Good luck to Jen, Royce, Keisha. Don't watch the new episodes, so the get less viewers on those very nights, just watch the reruns.

This show is nothing but

This show is nothing but Jerry Springer Reloaded. Jen, Royce, and Kesha should be thanking God that they were let go off of this minstrel show. It's way beneath them and they will be alright. And as far as Shaunie goes, she's a 2-faced, forked-tongue liar. Evelyn and Tami are biggest disgrace to black women, yet, they get to keep a platform to continue to display their ignorance.

Shaunie's a FOOOOOL.

Shaunie's a FOOOOOL. JENNIFER was one of the MAIN reasons i watched the show. i WILL NOT be watching this show, and i'm CERTAIN millions of the fans will follow this lead. Evelyn and Jenn really have the most amount of fans that watch for them, so to axe Jen is just stupid. Shaunie brings NOTHING to the show. she should have axed her role from being filmed as much. o well. Reportedly Jennifer is worth 25+ Million to Evelyn's 1.5 Mill so i doubt Jenn will miss the money....maybe only the attention.

Dont watch the show. Stop

Dont watch the show. Stop talking about it. Jen was too classy to be around the hood rats. I can't stand Evelyn. Tami is on crack, Evelyn is stupid, ugly poor white trash. She's staring to get the surgeries but her ass aint never been no basketball wife. Shaunie is a back stabbing bitch acting like she has a spiritual side. The devil.

Tami-the psycho, Evelyn-the ezy spread, and Shaunie-the frankenstein monster should all be canned. This show should be boycotted and as viewers we should insist on seeing women of intellect and class like Jennifer and Royce. Those three women are cruel, evil, vile and malicious. FIRE THEM !!!!!!!!! Jennifer was the best and will always be. Evelyn only pretended to want to reconcile because the fans all love Jen and she was worried that she is losing her fan base to her.
