“Basketball Wives" newbie Kenya Bell can’t seem to catch a break. In addition to dealing with legions of "BBW" fans who can’t seem to stand her, Kenya is reportedly heading for divorce.
Kenya’s hubby, Charlie Bell, is ready to sign those papers, TMZ reports.
Kenya, who is separated from Charlie, was arrested in May 2011 after allegedly breaking into their home and stabbing Charlie with a box cutter in front of their two children.
The former Miss Michigan was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence. Charlie, a former Golden State Warrior, suffered minor injuries. Kenya pled guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence and avoided jail time.
Charlie filed for divorce in a Michigan court citing a breakdown in the marriage.
This marital strife comes in the midst of drama Kenya’s having with her co-stars, none of whom seem to be Team Kenya. Since the start of the show, Kenya has been trying to show off her singing and dancing abilities to the ladies who haven’t been too impressed by her moves or her weave. Their favorite activity so far has been laughing at Kenya…not with her.
Unlike her L.A. counterpart, Jackie Christie, Kenya doesn’t have the loving shoulder of her committed husband to see her through the drama and hostility from her co-stars.
Kenya was the last “wife” on the show. The cast is now officially filled with: I-almost-married-a-baller women, divorcees, babymamas, and a wife who is currently going through a divorce.
