Four Wives Fired on VH1's 'Basketball Wives L.A.'

Shaunie O'Neal, star of the original Basketball Wives and executive producer of the shows, announced a couple weeks back that she would be making a complete makeover to the Basketball Wives L.A. cast. 


When a Twitter user exclaimed, "BASKETBALL WIVES LA BORING!!!! @SHAUNIEONEAL PLEASE CANCEL THIS SHOW!!!! I JUST CAN'T," O'neal responded, "how bout a complete makeover?"

Well, according to TMZ:
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.
Tisk, tisk Gloria! At least her and Matt finally got married.

Basketball Wives L.A. is boring this season and I continue to watch! I guess I keep hoping it will get better, but it's not. Too bad Jackie Christie didn't get axed as well, she gets on my nerves, but she will be returning to the show along with the non-wife Draya Michele.
