Shaunie O’Neal Fires Three ‘Basketball Wives’ From Show

That Retail Chick Jun 14 12 7 Comments

Last week, after the reunion show had already been filmed,  Shaunie O’Neal confirmed that if she was to return for another season, three of the current cast members would need to be removed from the show. In an interview with The Insider, she explained:

“Three [from Miami]…Immediately. No questions asked. Not anything personal, just not where I’m trying to go. Not on the same page. … If I would like this franchise to keep going, yeah, three would have to go.”

While she never referenced who the three would be, rumor has it that cast members have already been released and not invited for another season. Allegedly, Royce Reed, who has been on the show since the first season, has been released. Reportedly, her contract was not released because she’s not allowed to discuss her son’s father, NBA baller Dwight Howard. Royce was also not allowed to film with Shaunie and Evelyn.  Sources also tell TMZ that Jennifr Williams has also been released, mainly because of the lawsuit against Evelyn’s assistant, Nia Crooks. Lastly, we hear that Kesha’s contract MAY not be renewed because she was “boring”. No official confirmation or comment from Kesha, Royce or Jennifer’s camp has been shared. A VH1 rep shares,

“We don’t comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.”

If the rumors are true, would you watch without Kesha, Royce and Jennifer? Do you think that they released the correct cast members?

    i predict the whole cast will be new.. no more tammi since she is moving to L.A. to help her daughters’ career, no evelyn she will be married and more than likely have her own spin off show… no suzie being that the only role she played was the flunky with the loose lips she will probably get some kind of guest appearance of some other sitcom .. kenya was temporary just thrown in to see how she would relate to the girls also sort of divert some of the attention of evelyn going after jennifer.. meaning evelyn had to roles this season with two enemies…. and to show that kenya was a non mutha f. factor.. they didn’t give her any time for comments during the reunion special she was like the chair she sat in .. just there.. and we know royce, keesha, jennifer are gone as well. there you have my prediction now if i could get those lottery numbers i would be straight

    THIS IS A MESS FOR HER TO FIRE ONE OF THE MOST WELL KNOWN PERSON JENNIFER. SHE IS A FAN PLEASER AND SHAUNIE IS MAKING A MISTAKE.. THE GIRLS THAT NEED TO LEAVE IS TAMMY, KEISHA AND KENYA. EVERYONE ELSE CAN STAY FOR ANOTHER SEASON.. SHAUNIE AINT NOTHING BUT A BLACK DUMB ITCH SHE IS SENDING THESE BLACK WOMEN OUT TO LOOK FOOLISH.. ITS A SHAME HOW BLACK WOMEN WILL SEND EACH OTHER OUT JUST FOR SOME CASH. THIS PLATFORM THAT THESE LADIES HAVE SHOULD BE ULITIZED IN SOME TYPE OF POSITIVE WAY OTHER THAN FIGHTING AND DOWN GRADING EACH OTHER… IT SEEM AS IF BLACKS ARE STILL SLAVES IN THEIR MIND BUT YET HAVE FREEDOM MY LORD HELP US

    They need to just cancel the show. People are tired of them. They’ve been on long enough what else is there to know about them. Shaunie’s more boring than any of the other cast members. There’s a new wife show starting up. They are real wives & I heard real ladies. One of them is Ex wife of Eddie Murphy. Her & the other Ex wives are classy women. Those ladies Make Shaunie & her pack of wolves look like chicken heads. So, Shaunie while you’re firing people, do the viewers a favor & fire yourself. Ain’t nobdy feel you guys anymore. Wrap it up. RIP BBW Miami… As Evelyn says let’s keep it 100. Peace out..

    SHAUNIE ONLY FIRED JEN BECAUSE SHE WOULD’NT DROP CHARGES AGAINST NIA,SHE SHOULD NOT HABE PUT HER HANDS ON HER.DON’T BLAME YOU JEN

  6. Katherine says:

    The entire staff should be fired and replace with a show that has much more substance. Hate all shows with the words, Wives, Mob, Moms, Toddlers and let’s not forget 19 and counting.

    Shaunie needs to “GO”
