"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 people who decided to get

The people who decided to get physical while arguing should be the ones fired, but that's too much like right. Of course Shaunie would get rid of the women who tried to be positive on the show. Shaunie is a bird just like Tami, Evelyn, and Suzie. Birds of a feather flock together. We all know the show is expected to have drama and arguments, but the bottle throwing and slapping is going too damn far. At the reunion, VH1 tried to make the victims of bullying (Jen and Kesha) look like villains, while trying to justify Tami's and Evelyn's violent behavior. I agree with Tasha, Shaunie has said the show will be different at the end of every season, but it turns out being the same old thing. She makes nothing but empty promises, and obviously doesn't have that much power over the show. She only has producer credit and that's it. I think I'm done with this show. All it does is try to uphold the people who are wrong. I cut The Bad Girls Club loose, and I cut this garbage loose too. by the way, I'm surprised Kenya wasn't cut. She probably promised to bring more drama to the show, so that she can still promote her bad music.

I knew that these 3 would be the ones to go. Tami and Evelyn are Shaunies girls and they kept the ratings sky high. I think she really has issues with Jen and Royce.

So now we they going to have 3 knew people who have to audition and be interegated inorder to be in the precious circle. Glad I stopped watching this show. If they gave those three a spin off I would watch them. They all have there own business and are trying to better themselves. Each one is a different stage in their life and that could be explored.

I am actually not surprised

I am actually not surprised about Kesha cause of the interviews she has beemn doing. Dissing the boss is a no no obviously, though everything she had said was true. That Bossip video she did got like over 100k hits

wow Shaunie, are you

wow Shaunie, are you serious??? The wackest this season was Tami and Evelyn, you decided to keep them, I guess you are afraid of getting your butt kicked by them, so you had no choice, Jenn scared the whole Vh1 team with lawsuits, so I see why they would want to get rid of her, Kesha is boring but Royce, come on now, you dead wrong for Royce!!

I don't think Shaunie is

I don't think Shaunie is afraif of Ev or Tami. One thing I've come to know and love about Shaunie is that she's a brilliant buisness woman. She knows if BBW lost Tami or Evelyn then the show would lose more then half of its viewers. Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada have HUGE fan following and if the one's who don't like them knows good and well they watch the show for Evelyn and Tami to act some fools so Shaunie is being smart and Ev and Tami are obviously her real friends off camera!

Ok so by more positive

Ok so by more positive representation Beavis and Butthead's birth momma decides ditch the 3 ladies who acted the least ratchet in favor of people who climb on tables to jump at folks,hurls glasses and cups, chucks bottles, steals purses intimidation and physical assaults, and a snake whose sole purpose in 4 seasons is to run her mouth guaranteeing that there will be drama and fights. Thats why I said that whole reunion was setup to bully Jen over that lawsuit and court case. How is Jen a liability when it was Nostrils O'STFU that created an format for DW Reed to act a fool and slap her. Also it cant be said enough that Suzie-Runteldat has to be the most useless person ever in reality tv she literally has NO PURPOSE, besides helping create setups with all her runteldat mouth. Geez at least Jen brought the fashion her Royce and Kesha have outside businesses that should have been the focus but no not with the Bird Bunch. Who wants to watch those miserable rats including the Executive Producer who only has power when it benefits her. I say deuces Hook Nose

The tree that got axed were

The tree that got axed were the only ones I liked to watch!!!!! They tried to keep it classy with a bunch of high school bullies. Seriously, can Ev be any more full of herself? Ochoa cinco is a freaking idiot. Tami is SO immature, it is isn't even funny. Emotionally she is stunted at the level of 7 year old and extremely manipulative. Shaunie doesn't have a back bone and is a shitty friend. Suzi, ultimate gossip. Keisha and Jen were classy and my hope was the show would focus on the immature ones learning to be better people. This just proved they have not evolved at all and are going backwards. Ps. Royce was entertaining and will do just fun without the show.

Y'all, instead of just

Y'all, instead of just venting here, PLEASE put words into action and stop watching! They were so close to being canceled this year. The viewers control a lot more than they think. Don't just voice your outrage here; vocalize ur views by eliminating their audience. Sign the petition and change the channels so they know that we find this portrayal of minorities to be disgusting and unacceptable. The show premise has been ridiculous from the get-go since even in the first season there were, what 1 or 2 actual wives? Now it's just ratchet BS that is sending horrible examples to our daughters: as long as he has money, stay with him, no matter how he treats u (Laura Govan); as long as I blame it on liquor and "the job," I can pretty much do and say anything to anybody (Evelyn and Tami); "babymama" is synonymous with "wife" (95% of BOTH casts). Shaunie needs to go focus on other projects, including her children that she says are the most important parts of her life. How does she explain her promotion of violence without responsibility to her kids? End this show now.

i signed the petition to stop Chad & Evelyn show. i didn't know there was one to stop the BBW, if so, let me know. i won't be watching, after i saw Evelyn tell all of Jennifer personal business, i knew that was it for me.i like a good argument but that was just ridiculous and their half *** apologies ain't gonna cut it. i am glad Keisha got to tell Tami how she really feel. i wish Jennifer could have really told them to kiss her ***, especially since they were getting rid of her anyway.

The fact is that Shaunie

The fact is that Shaunie can't see past the foolishness perpetrated by Tami and Evelyn and Suzi's instigating azz. So therefore to save face, she took the "safe route" by firing Kesha, Royce and Jenn. Shaunie has had it in for Royce and she's the one who won't tape with her; Kesha didn't bring any drama and as for Jenn - Shaunie is just using this as a way to get back at Jenn for filing the suit against Nia. The logical firings should have been Tami, Evelyn and Suzie. Tami and Evelyn for obvious reasons and them being the main reason folks are protesting and sponsors pulling out advertisements. Suzie should be gone becacuse she brings absolutely NOTHING to the show, not even those loose lips of hers.

Lets just hope the LA spinoff

Lets just hope the LA spinoff is taking cues on what NOT to do, maybe after enough viewers drop on the Miami cast, they will be axed.

come people those three

come people those three deserve to get the axed. Keshia was fake and talk about people behind their backs. Jen was fake too forgetting her friends who really helped her out in the rough times. She went on air and told her bff business really...

ummmm what business did Jen

ummmm what business did Jen tell?......and as far as tough times Evelyn is the first to tell you Jenn was down with her for 2 big breakup and 3 moves, family issues etc.....yet jennifer said on the reunion that at the biggest life change of her life, her divorce...Evelyn didn't reach out to her at all....so you were saying

So it's not confirmed, but lets say this is true. Shauni..FAIL. Yep, are previous phony assumptions about what people think when you come into a meeting is true...you are who you 'portray' on the show. You suck..you throw a rock and hide your hand. You are just as messy as the bully and the whore you hang around with. Best of luck industry pimp/ publicity jestor.

I can't believe this, Shaunie

I can't believe this, Shaunie acting all sincere and emotional, I knew she wouldn't cancel show because it's all about the money. Why let the sensible people go and you want to have a more positive show. I must be slow or something. Tammie is a BULLY and that's the bottom line, she was calm on the reunion because she was on her calm medicine. I fault Shaunie the leader for letting the situations get to the point they did. Cancel whole show!

Whomp im out now! The entire

Whomp im out now! The entire issue of the show that viewers were having was with the 3 stooges Shauni, Tami and Ev. So to keep them and axe Jen is so typical of them. I guess the big bad wolves win but i am not watching without Jen. It should be Royce, Keisha and that crazy 40 year old singer.

This is so dumb! Sounds to me

This is so dumb! Sounds to me like she is getting rid of people that cause LESS drama. I hope this whole show gets canceled! Then, to watch the reunion & listen to Suzi say that she didn't go back & tell Tami what Keyshia said- she no she lying! She still got diarrhea of the mouth! Can't stand her either. During just about the whole season, she was running telling dat!

This just speaks to the fact

This just speaks to the fact that Shaunie is keeping people who kiss her a-s. With the remaining cast members, there will be nothing positive coming from that show. Despite, what Shaunie thinks, there were intelligent people who were hoping for something positive from the show. That is why people are so outraged with 4 seasons of madness. The last staw for me was Shaunie and John Salley saying people with negative comments about the show have nothing better to do...ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!! ANYBODY IN THEIR RIGHT MIND CAN SEE THAT THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING POSITIVE COMING FROM THAT SHOW....SHAME ON YOU SHAUNIE, EVELYN, TAMMI AND SHIT STIRRING SUZIE...MOST OF ALL, SHAME ON VH1 FOR AIRING SUCH A NEGATIVE BASED PROGRAM...WHAT A DISTURBING WORLD WE LIVE IN...ADIOS...

I can see it now. They are going to bring on the family aspect of these women and showcase them as being fabulous moms (blah, blah) and the ratings will be through the roof. I will believe it when I see that people will stop watching this mess. I have never supported this mess and have not watched a full episode, let alone a full season of any show/sitcom on BET, VH1 or any VIACOM supported network. They produce trash. There should have never been any of this mess to come after Flavor of Love. The buck should have stopped there. Just messy!

tami should go because of her

tami should go because of her attitude, evelyn has her own show coming, so why does she need both? suzy has absolutely nothing going on-does she even still have a job? Royce has a dance company, but she makes poor decisions in men and wardrobe lol, so she can kick rocks. kendra is looney tunes so she can go too. welp, i guess that's mostly everyone...CANCEL

I can't stand that bald

I can't stand that bald headed man lookin b!tch shaunie...that's some bull..the show is crap. I guess if you don't kiss her @ss enough, then you kicked off. Shaunie being the producer of the show shouldn't even be filmed with the cast..she should stay behind the scenes. That's what makes the show so damn messy. They lost me as a viewer..this show disgusts me. It's a negative image of blackwomen. She must got it in contract for that b!tch suzie not to be hit. If I was on the show i'd been pop that instigatin' b!tch. It's always the same people keepin' up sh!t on that show...they get a new cast, they'll still have the same problem. Evilyn, Tammie, and shaunie look like a bunch of d!kes anyway.

The show is for entertainment. So you have to keep the entertaining people. Why would you want to watch a show with those 3 extra boring ladies. I dont understand why people keep watching it and wasting their time blogging about it if u hate it so much. Why did you even click on the link is you dont like the show?

That's a poor excuse. A

That's a poor excuse. A reality show can have entertaining arguments without harming people. Hurting people is not entertainment. Even The real Housewives of Atlanta managed to not be physically violent this past season, so we know Basketball Wives could do the same thing. You can still bring drama and not physically harm people like tami and Evelyn and did. Don't worry I won't be watching this crap anymore. I only started watching because people were talking about it so much. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, but now I'm done. This show obviously glorifies violent women, and have impressionable girls thinking fighting is cute. I'm not supporting this mess anymore. I should have never watched it in the first place.

u r absolutely right. the

u r absolutely right. the mean girls get you all heated and upset, that is why u watch the show. everybody complaining on a blog, but every monday u sit right down and watch it. just like the villan on the soap opera. u hate the villan, but w/o the villan, u don't have a show. if u don't want to see the mean evil girls, make sure that u don't watch season 5. they don't care how much u blog, u have to hit them where it hurts and that is in ratings. don't watch the show. shaunie said in an interview "she has tried talking w/other producers and they say the ratings r high, so why would they change". u can cry and scream about the ridiculous women all u want, they ain't going nowhere as long as u sit there and watch it every monday. be strong, don't watch it. i am done, the reunion was boring, i can't stand John Sally hosting, i am done. didn't mean to write a book.
