Home » Basketball Wives » Basketball Wives | Royce, Jennifer & Kesha FIRED!

Rumor has is, Royce Reed, Jennifer Williams & Kesha Nichols have been fired from season 6 of Basketball Wives! According to TMZ they will be replaced next season.

Dwight Howard can finally relax — because his baby mama Royce Reed just got her ass axed from “Basketball Wives” … along with two other stars on the show.

Sources connected with production tell TMZ, Jennifer Williams and Kesha Nichols also got the chop — and will be replaced next season. It’s unclear who’s in line to take their spots.

According to sources, producers will be giving the girls their walking papers any day now to drop what they called “dead weight” from the show.

We’re told Royce was cut because she wasn’t legally allowed to talk about Dwight due to a 2009 gag order, blocking her from discussing her ex in any way. The other girls on the show had also decided to ostracize her, so Royce couldn’t shoot scenes with the rest of the cast.

As for the others — producers think Jennifer’s too big a liability after suing Nia Crooks for slapping her on the show. And Kesha was just too boring.

A rep for VH1 tells TMZ, “We don’t comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.”

That’s a huge shakeup especially since Jennifer and Evelyn hugged it out and Royce was the voice of reason and not nonsense. If this is true, shame on VH1. Season 5 begins filming this fall and will feature – Shaunie O’Neal, Suzie Ketcham, Tami Roman, Kenya Bell and allegedly Ashley Walker from seasons 2 and 3, there’s no word if Evelyn Lozada will be back as yet.

  • Brittsonia
    Suzie is jus on the show for a free ride and a free trip at the end!!!! What exactly is she bringing to the table other than her yuck mouth!!
  • Eddienelson11
    Basketball wives should name the show to ex ballers wives and since evelyn is married to a football player chad occhocinco she should be kick off the air because she is not that good she wants to be a bully to every other female and that’s not cool. And to throw wine bottles that’s a bitch move and that’s unlady like if you say you will you will never get upset like that.
  • disgusted
    Please tell me who runs this show because it seems like a bunch of idiots cause how do you fire the only two people that aren’t drama filled or that are ladies just dumb!  But it is ok Jennifer needs to go on and find a real show to be on with some class just like Ev said she aint about that life no she is much better.  I guess drama sells so on with the drama and bullying ITCHS!!!  #TEAMJENANDROYCE!!!
  • disgusted
    THEY CANT GET RID OF SUZIE’S DUMB ASS CAUSE SHE GOTTA KEEP THE DRAMA GOING.  NOT A GOOD LOOK SHAUNIE!!
  • EHughes
    There is nothing positive about this show or their lives…This is the best thing that could have happened for these ladies. The Show is a joke anyway. Anyone with a piece of sense would not entertain the ignorance. Why do these women wish to degrade themselves. I can’t understand for the life of me. Real women don’t behave this way. What people want do for MONEY…
  • Brittany_cunning
    Kesha just start trouble with other people and talk about people behind their backs and point fingers at other people with the he said she said stuff instead of owning up to it
  • Satinka74
    Everyone wants to talk about how Shaunie needs positive things on the show but truth be told no one would watch it if it was just a bunch of women shopping or drinking! The drama is why we watch it. It brings color in our boring black and white lives! Keep up the good work Shaunie!
  • BONNERDP
    TIME FOR EV TO GO SHES ABOUT TO B A FOOTBALL WIFE ANY WAY AND SHES TO MUCH DRAMA
  • Beckyrortiz
    The show was talking about going positive and they just rid of the only three that were avoiding the drama. They want drama starters ,not positive women that take the right steps in life..the show is all about drama and bullying

    …if Royce isn’t included; i’m not included with the ratings…
  • Jlo25th
    Forget basketball wives bcuz clearly none of them are wives anymore except evelyn, shaunie embraces the drama and it would make lots of sense if no one took her seriously, tammy is a drama queen and screams for attention since the real world and the best way for her to get it is fighting, lame! Idk suzies purpose, maybe she just has no where else to fit in, evelyn is tammi puppy dog that ny shit aint foolin nobody, they kickin royce off bcuz she keeps it real and they hate her for it…but sex and drama r the top 2 sellers so lets let these money hungry chics have it lol
  • Smithmonterra
    It’s a shame if it’s true that this show upholds Bullies!! Tell these grown women with children to grow up and act like respectable people! Shaunie plays the Devil’s Advocate and keeps most of this back and forth b.s going! Wonder what would happen if someone slapped Shaunie?! Stop feeling sorry for Nia rachett A$$ she ” Welcomed the Lawsuit”!
  • fabfeathers
    U all should be ashamed to think we are dumb enough to believe your bull and to portray black women after all the people who were beaten, imprisoned and killed for the equal rights that enable you to sit before cameras in your louboutins and treat each other like trash.
  • vernroc
    Evelyn needs to go. She’s not even a bbw…. So over that stupid show. They got rid of the wrong peeps and kept all the trouble makers. Shaunie must not be to concerned about her image after all…
    • vernroc
      Suzie needs to go too…she likes to talk big and bad when her girls are there but she’s nothing but trouble and can’t back her crap up.
  • raindrop
    I think they just off the chain, embarrassing their men like that, lol.

  • Ravenscheer
    It’s so typical that they would fire Royce and Keisha but not tami and evely the most ghetto people on the show. Dead weight shaunie please, sounds more like you would fire those girls who don’t kiss your almighty bootie, ans keep the ones who are am embarrassment to the show because they let you lead them around on a leash and worship at your alter
  • mrswalker
    Well, i’m done watching is mess. How do you fire the ones that were getting bullied. Nice message you’re sending.
  • maisha
    They need to get rid of tami an suzie, suzie is just tami’s tape recorder anything somebody say she said with extra on it……suzie an tami ain’t about that life……..
  • http://www.facebook.com/dominique.criss Dominique Criss
    im still going to rate the show.. but its shaunie show… she can take out, put in, flip the script, increase/ decrease their pay just because shes that top notch HBIC.! What you all say is only a rating because at the end of the day she will continue to replace to make her money, the cast money and to keep those ratings rocketing. My opinion is that Susie sword face fish ass should have been kicked. Since yall keeping her on their next season I want to see someone whip her catmouth ass and afterwards I dare her to open that mouth and spread some more bullshit.
  • MARIE CARRINGTON
    TAMI ROMAN SHOULD BE OUST FROM THE SHOW, HER BEHAVIOR WAS SO TERRIBLE & SHAUNEY DID NOTHING 2 CORRECT IT BECAUSE THEY ALL SEEMED 2 BE FEARFUL OF HER.EVELYN SHOULD BE NEXT 2 GO BOTH OF THESE LADIES DISPLAYED A TACKY GHETTO BEHAVIOR. AND YES JENNIFER SHOULD KEEP THE CHARGES ON NIA, SHE WAS TOTALLY OUT OF ORDER & THE SHOW SHOULD BE UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT. ROYCE,KEISHA, & JENNIFER & KENYA WERE THE TRUE LADIES OF THE SHOW & I WISH THESE 4 LADIES MUCH SUCCESS & GOD’S BLESSINGS.

    I say VH1 needs to cancel the whole entire show. Those chicks are giving WOMEN all around the world a bad name period. It’s more or so Shaunie, Tami and Evelyn but who cares it’s all rubbish anyway. Don’t try to dilute season 6 when we’re all fully aware of who yall truly are! Soooooo not getting my rating anymore !!!
  • Malaysian barbee
    The show to me needs to go off air because there no positive message from it any more only drama and confusion if the wanted to send a positive message the firing Suzie and Evelyn messy asses woyld have been the right step to make because in all honesty Evelyn is the biggest libility of all alway throwing thing at people well I nolonger will b tuning in to the show
  • bertye brown
    Some of these women have children. Do we need to wonder anymore where our children get their morals and values from. Children don’t do as you say do, they do what they see you do. They are great imitators. How sad if some of them saw this show and saw the way adult females behave.
    The bullying on the three episode I watched was over the top for grown women or anyone for that matter. O’Neal I think is the creator and it has been reported that she was reworking the cast of the show. Needless to say where her mind is, if those females left represent the best of the cast. Drama and bad behavior sell and it is too bad that most of these females seem to highlight every stereotype that there is about black women. The love of money does make one forget their moral and values.
    The episodes I saw was enough to convince me that there is nothing of redeeming value in shows of this nature.

I wanna see the same cast and crew!!! The ratings will drop!!

  • carol black
    Keasha is the only one they should KEEP and build the show around her life. The rest led by Shaunie are a bunch of $ hungry , label h’s. They are old and ugly! Shaunie’s EX must hate the way she acts and she should be home watching what her daughter is eating rather than have her fat butt off on a trip.
  • lovelost
    Idk what any of these females are on there cause ain’t none of them basketball wives
  • shar
    Jennifer needs to sue the show, im sorry my safty became a non issue because you want ratings?, well rate this you have been served” . These people are idiots they need to 86 the whole show all together. Pimpp shaune has no back bone to tell the bullies when they are wrong, however she wants tosit in her pastors office and act confused, however you didn’t mention you where in the room with the girls while they where putting fish all over the place. I know she would more than likely. Say yal don’t see everything whatever you are the weakest link.
  • Kay
    I’m going to play devil’s advocate it’s easy to let Tammi and Eve go but how will we see all the changes they said they wanted to make and redeem themselves…… My vote is for Suzie to because if your gonna carry message take like it’s said don’t make it hott when it’s not

    Suzie should have been the first to go, she was the one who kept all the mess going. She has a big, big, mouth, told everthing that was said about whoever, and who said it. Cant stand that crazy woman. She has nothing else going on on the show, but talk, talk, talk..
    • Ahlokin4u

At least they would shed positive light that there are Actual Women who’s all about keeping positive light and how women Should act!! Shaunie, Tami, Evelyn, and Suzie, y’all are NOT real women!! You are a disappointment to the female race!! The little girls in my class don’t act like you all do!! You all are sad, disgrace, selfish, bullies, pathetic, low confidence, stingy females who needs to GROWUP!!!! #REALTALK
