"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'm confused, so in order to be entertaining black women need to act like stereotypical angry black birds?

As far as this show goes I m

As far as this show goes I m pretty much on the same page as everyone else... I will no longer watch this show. Shaunie is a disgrace to black women for perpetuating this image of what black women are like. No one is a basketball wife! The show has zero to do w/ anything pertaining to basketball or about how wives behave. The real basketball wives w/charities and who do volunteer work are shaking their heads at Shaunie and her BS show. Just because they showed some 1 minute clip of getting mammograms does not make for positivity! I am also disappointed in Star Jones. I was under the impression that she was going to get her celeb friends together and make a statement to the world that this BBW is not a true representation of black women. Instead, she's in pics w/dreadful Evelyn smiling it up... *sigh* I feel for our future generation of women if this is how they look up to.

Can we please support this

Can we please support this petition to cancel the show COMPLETELY!!! I watched part 2 of the reunion and was very surprised to hear Shaunie pressure Jen into dropping her charges. She felt that scaring Nia or teaching her a lesson was suffice. Next day, we hear Shaunie saying how she wants to change the direction of the show, YET she keeps the 2 MAIN women who are ugly on the inside, Tami and Evelyn. I mean seriously. Between the two of them, there's bound to be some bullying, fighting (with hands/objects/words) and harassing next season towards whoever the 3 new replacements are. Just a darn shame. We all enjoy a little drama- guilty pleasure but there has to be an END. Please support. http://www.change.org/petitions/vh1-remove-basketball-wives-miami-la-etc

I WILL NOT WATCH ANYMORE.

I WILL NOT WATCH ANYMORE. IT'S FUNNY HOW THE LEFT THE BULLY ON THE SHOW. TAMI EVELYN AND SHAUNIE SHOULD BE CANCELED WE ALL SHOULD STOP WATCHING AND TEACH THEM A LESSON ABOUT BULLYING.

I totally agree with you,

I totally agree with you, Tasha, instigating a** Suzy should be gone. She starts it all with her flood gate she calls a mouth. Royce should be gone because no one likes her and she is really looking pathetic with her man to man to man to daddy issues. Kesha probably wanted to leave honestly because nobody is going to go against Tami on the show. I think that CRAZINESS that is Kendra should have been cut as well but oh well. I can't say that I will be watching but I do feel she has more cutting and re-evaluating to do. IMO

That was the wrong move and

That was the wrong move and the wrong message. Tami will do another shot of hard liquor, and she will find another "weak" link to bully. As if Suzy has any story line besides fueling the he say, she say...

I, for one, am not watching.

I, for one, am not watching. the only reason I watched it was for Jennifer and Royce. Rudeness and violence should never be rewarded.

I completely agree. Rudeness

I completely agree. Rudeness and violence are definitely winning at this point of the BBW game and it's so sad that this is the case.

Shaunie should be DISGUSTED

Shaunie should be DISGUSTED with herself. Tammie or Ev should have been axed. Royce, Jenn, & Kesha were mostly the victims. I hope this show gets cancelled soon. Ppl need 2 stop watching it. So, i guess by firing the victims, Ev & Tammi will get some act rite b/c they have no1 to bully?????!!!!!!! SMDH

I'm so over TAMI!! She

I'm so over TAMI!! She should've been the one to get the axe, she was the most negative person this entire season, especially with the stint she pulled with Kesha, really Shaunie? Yall on that BULLish!

This just shows how full of shit Shaunie really is. "I want the show to have more balance" yet you will keep the bullies and shit starters that pretty much ruined your fan base. Pure BS. Tami is by far the biggest animal I have seen in a woman / mother on TV. Keep the drinks away from that beast.

I guess when you get bullied,

I guess when you get bullied, slapped etc and try to go about it in a grown women fashion you get fired from your jobs.....Jennifer got cut not because she fought back but because instead of being physical she fought back legally WOW!! shaunie really?

I for one will not be

I for one will not be watching the show anymore. I can't stand Evelyn or Tami and why in the heck are they on the show they are not basketball wives at all, Isn't Evelyn with a NFL player now? she needs to be on football wives. Ok whatever! I hope this show gets canceled real quick.. I for one vote it out.

I thought it should have been Evelyn, Tami, Royce. I stopped watching after season two. Still not postive for black women. Shaunie, Evelyn and Tami still not sincere.
