‘BBW: L.A.’ cast reacts to firing rumors

    If the rumors about four cast members being cut from the “Basketball Wives: L.A.” team are true, Brooke Bailey and Laura Govan haven’t been informed.

    The two co-stars were listed among those who wouldn’t be returning to the spin-off reality show for a third season, assuming that there will be a season 3.

    In addition to backlash over how the series and its predecessor depict minority women, the ratings for season 2 have been lackluster. Although the show received a boost in ratings for its most recent episode, viewers have still been vocal in suggesting that the network drop it completely.

    “I think they should CUT THE WHOLE D@MN show. It is ignorant and i refuse to watch this garbage," wrote one S2Smagazine.com user.

    Little has been said about doing away with the show, but Shaunie O’Neal hinted that a “makeover” might be on the way, and that was followed by gossip that four cast members – Brooke, Laura, Gloria Govan and Malaysia Pargo – had all been fired.

    However, Laura pretty much scoffed at that idea.

    “P.S. ya girl ain’t never been fired from ANYTHING in life. eff what ya heard!” she tweeted Wednesday.

    Likewise, Brooke referred to the news as a rumor, and asserted that she’d be returning to the show, if she decides that’s something she wants to do.

    “It’s a rumor. I’m definitely confident that I’ll be returning to anything that I want to return to,” she told HipHollywood.com.

    Jackie didn’t directly address the rumor. Instead, she just asked her Twitter fans how they’d feel about her leaving the show.

    "So do ya’ll want me to come back next season or am i too BAD??? xoxox," she asked.
