"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.

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.
