Is Shaunie O’Neal serious about revamping the image of her Basketball Wives franchise? Maybe.
Royce Reed, Kesha Nichols and Jennifer Williams have all been fired.
“Basketball Wives producers believe Kesha, Royce, and Jennifer are the dead weight of the show and will formally give them their pink slips in the coming days. Royce Reed was cut from the show because she is legally barred from talking about her ex-boyfriend Dwight Howard due to a 2009 gag order she’s been unsuccessfully attempting to have lifted.
