Listen up: If you’re currently having intimate correspondence with an NBA player, current or former, you might want to send an application in to VH1.
According to TMZ, the producers of Basketball Wives: LA will be giving walking papers to FOUR cast members. That’s right, Gloria Govan, Laura Govan, Malaysia Pargo and Brooke Bailey will be told, “Thanks but your services are no longer needed” as it pertains to their roles on the show. Wait, do you see the “will be” in the previous sentences? Yes, that’s because the producers apparently haven’t even told the women that they no longer have a job. Ohhhh, the “scandalocity” (yes, I made it up) of it all!
Sources told TMZ that the primary catalyst behind this – the straw that broke the camel’s back, if you will – was when Gloria skipped out of town to have a quickie Vegas wedding to now husband, Matt Barnes. She didn’t let producers know that it would be happening so, of course, they weren’t able to film anything. They felt very disrespected by it and because they felt like she, along with the other ladies weren’t allowing “all of their reality to be filmed,” they had to go.
So, that only leaves Jackie and Draya while producers look to find replacements “wives” for next season. They probably should go ahead and make the decision to cancel the show altogether since the ratings were so terrible.
But for the sake of entertaining ourselves, do you have any replacements in mind? Please note, that if you nominate yourself, we’ll all be up in the comments asking for “the tea” on who you’re creeping with. Let’s hear it!
