There’s word that Shaunie O’Neal may have already booted cast members from the "Basketball Wives" roster.
Earlier this week, Shaunie O’Neal told "The Insider" that she wanted to cut three women from the show, no questions asked. Initial speculation was that Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada would be the main ones on the chopping block because of their behavior this season. And Shaunie’s been very cagey about whether or not she would return to the show.
However, a source close to production told TMZ.com that Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed and Kesha Nichols have all been benched from "Basketball Wives."
Reportedly, Royce is being cut because she is not legally allowed to talk about her babydaddy, Dwight Howard, per the terms of a 2009 gag order that bars her from referring to him in any way.
Given her moves to take legal action after getting attacked on the show, producers feel that Jenn is too much of a liability.
And according to the tipster, Kesha is finished because she’s "too boring."
None of the ladies have gotten their walking papers yet, but when TMZ approached VH1 about confirmation on the cast changes, the network stated, “We don’t comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.”
Though the no cuts have officially been made, flip through the slideshow below to see why no one is really safe.
