Remember when we reported that Shaunie O’Neal said changes needed to be made as far as the cast of “Basketball Wives: LA” is concerned?

Well, apparently she wasn’t just bumping her gumbs. She meant business. Action was taken and there are now 4 openings on the reality TV spin-off.

“Basketball Wives: L.A.” axed four of its six cast members — and TMZ has learned the catalyst was when Gloria Govan shut producers out of her nuptials to L.A. Lakers star Matt Barnes.

Sources connected to the show tell TMZ the producers are getting rid of Gloria, Laura Govan, Malaysia Pargo and Brooke Bailey because the wives, especially Gloria, weren’t allowing “all of their reality to be filmed.”

We’re told the breaking point came when Gloria (who is known for her feisty ways) jetted off to Vegas to marry Barnes — and didn’t even let the show know about it. Our sources say the producers felt extremely disrespected by her actions and made the decision to clean house.

Our sources tell us the producers haven’t told the wives they’re getting fired yet, but are already looking for new women to fill their spots.

Draya Michele and Jackie Christie will be the only returning members.

    Thank You. We must emphasize positive role models. Negative images Create Negative people . We must change the way we act , the world is very hard on brothers and sisters every move we make is being watched.
    We are talented ,just look at our phenomenal artists, Doctors, Lawyers. Athletes, business people , why can’t Tom Joyner promote positive people , why always people who are on drugs, beat up their wives, squander their money , why not the 95% good people in our community ?
