  • Sources close to production tell TMZ that Jennifer Williams, Kesha Nichols and Royce Reed will be replaced next season. So far, no word on who will take their spots.

    TMZ cites sources who say producers will give word to the women any day now to drop what they called “dead weight” from the show.

    Royce was reportedly cut because she wasn’t legally allowed to talk about her ex-husband Dwight Howard due to a 2009 gag order. The other women on the show had also decided to ostracize her, so Royce couldn’t shoot scenes with the rest of the cast.

    According to TMZ, producers think Jennifer’s too big of a liability after suing Nia Crooks for slapping her on the show. And Kesha was just too boring.

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

    2. Now I see why Shaq divorced Shaunie.If you get rid of Shaunie Tami, Evelyn,you will still have drama but no fist will be flying. Shaunie, Tami, and Evelyn are bottom feeders at best..Evelyn may not want to be on the show because she has secured her meal ticket,Chad.

    3. The world love it own, jennifer williams and royce reed, kesha nicole is better off from that trashes show shauni and suize and tami to me was the worst three evelyn trying to clean her act up jennifer had the right to file a sue aganist that trash that hit her people do dot suppose to put there hand on you in on form of fashion no one don’t want to be slap in there face that was dead wrong.

    4. Shauni, I have an idea for the “Real housewives of Mega-preachers” and a cast that I think will get rave reviews! I assure you that people will tune in. I also feel that those preacher wives have a lot to tell and also believe that their husbands, mega million preachers won’t mind because they have commercialized the business of church religion to become a “mega church”. Those women have voices that can be used to MOBILIZE our community and involvement in our judicial and political process. Those “silent voices” might resonate loudly given a chance! They are human and have foundations that could be served by their involvement and activism. Just a thought! OBAMA 2012

    5. I used to be for cancelling the show but in “reality” these “type” shows are here to stay. Instead of banning them let’s find a way to bring class to the “sass”. Black People we have to find a way to keep them on the air. Rest assured the other “non-Black” reality shows are not going anywhere we just need to make sure that we are represented in the best possible light and still keep it interesting is a daunting act! Minorities only have a few shows otherwise we have nothing, so let’s rally together to keep them a “factor”. Good luck Shauni!OBAMA 2012

    7. Do these B-Ball “Wives” (term loosely used) have any idea what women like Diahann Carroll (Julia), Gail Fisher (Mannix), Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek), Eartha Kitt (Batman), Judy Pace (variety) and Leslie Uggams (variety) had to endure, the diligence they had to exercise, to get meaningful roles on TV? These woman are a DISGRACE to the sisterhood (of all women, no just black), the entertainment industry, and modern technology. To think that they would frivolously abuse these precious professional opportunities with this nonsense, I am totally appalled by this constant barrage of indignant behavior. Never mind the millions of impressionable (especially, young) people watching, what about their own children (eventually, if not now) bearing witness to such ignorance? Their IQ scores must be in the single digits. You might as well put a prom dress on a pig. DISGUSTING!!! Relieving 2 or 3 of them is not enough– the entire project should be scrapped!

    8. I like many others that have posted, cannot believe that they let Jennifer and Royce go but kept the other mess starting females. Tammy is dulusional if she thinks she is not a bully! Keep getting that therapy. I’m sick of the mess and the fighting. Nothing good happens on this show. I’m not going to watch anymore if they cant keep a few decent women on the show. Jennifer should have done just what she did. Ignorant people know how to throw them bows BUT the way you get folks like that is the legal system. Hit them in their pockets and they will keep their f’n hands to themselves. Why cant you hold a conversation, go off argue with out fighting? Out of control. When people fight the other person pushes that button and they cant handle it……..I’m embarassed of these women. None of them are women to look up to (the ones they are keepin)! And thowing in the mammograms and her daughters birthday party were nice but the ignorance far outweighs the good. The show needs some balance. I cant believe good money was wasted taking these fools to Tahiti! Just crazy!

    9. Today I taught a group of young high school age girls what it means to have “Self Esteem.” I asked each of them to give me an example of having self esteem and not. One of the young ladies answered….The show Basketball Wives is a perfect example of no self esteem. The conversation then took a turn using the show as an example of how ladies are not suppose to act, bullying and girl fighting. I had come prepared with power point presentation and several examples. I did not have to use any of them……the show Basketball Wives has proven to be a great example of how women who have no pride or dignity regarding themselves behave. I ask…are television ratings really worth it…..really?????

    10. What is Suzie’s relevancy? Color I am with Wendy Williams on adding her name to the mix. Suzie is just there with no spine as the go between. Hopefully Jen will get in on the Evelyn/Chad show if it makes it to TV, might be a twist. Other than that I am not sure what the girls are going to have to entertain us with. Let’s just wait and see. Good luck girls on getting another pay check. OBAMA 2012

    11. I really cannot believe Tami and Evelyn are remaining on the show. These two women are the true meaning of the word and definition”Bully”. I find Evelyn and Tami to be very vulgar and it appears they cannot speak a one line sentence without using profane and/or vulgar language. This really speaks for itself of the type of show Shaunie is looking for. As for Susie, she is a troublemaker and will do anything and throw anyone under the bus to be a part of the Tami, Evelyn and Shaunie group. Shaunie sits back and pretends she does not like the drama but she does absolutely nothing to stop it. She is only interested in the ratings. She wonders what they are thinking she goes into meeting with the executives – she said it best – “she is a ghetto,hot mess”.

    12. Ok fire the classy and keep the trashy. I used to love Tami until this season and she just took it to a whole nother level. I guess she is eating reagular. I do not care how many times she says she is not a bully, she bully of the worse kind. You talk about Jennifer suing Nia but not about you suing Evelyn for some words on a T-shirt I hope she take Nia to the bank because yall used her and she let you. Why is Evelyn coming back she has never been a wife and is now about to marry a football player that makes sense, and you get rid of Royce and keep Suzie really the carrier she has no purpose at all on the show.

    13. Let me get this straight, Jennifer was fired because she is suing Nia but Nia is not being fired for smacking Jennifer. Sounds like Shaunie wants to keep the people on who like to keep mess going. Royce cries too much and Kesha I don’t know. All these shows that have too much drama needs to be cancelled. Basketball Wives, Mob Wives, all the Housewives and the new one about the Celebrity Wives ex-wives.

    14. If this is true, I am sooooo glad. Jennifer was about to get on my nerves with her uppidy self and Kesha was just a child in an adults body. I don’t even know why they brought her on the show; and don’t forget Royce. This child has problems.
