Fired Basketball Wives Cast Members Revealed

Creator Shaunie O'Neal promised a cast shakedown.

Published June 15, 2012

Evelyn Lozada's promise to play nice isn't the only big change on the horizon for Basketball Wives.

Days after creator and executive producer Shaunie O'Neal said ominously that three cast members from the hit reality show would be let go, the pink slips have been handed out. 

reports that Royce Reed, Jennifer Williams and Kesha Nichols are the unlucky trio who have been fired from the controversial show. Sources allegedly connected with the production tell the gossip site that the three are considered "dead weight" to the franchise, and will be formally let go any day now. 

The reasons vary for each wife: Reed was sprung because of a gag order that prevents her from dishing about her ex Dwight Howard, William's had become too much of a liability after filing a lawsuit against Lozada's assistant Nia Crooks, and Nichols...well, she's apparently just too boring. 

VH1 has not officially confirmed the news, telling TMZ, "We don't comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.”
