Three ladies from Basketball Wives will not be returning next season…Royce Reed, Kesha Nichols and Jennifer Williams according to TMZ. We all knew that Jennifer would most likely be cut after filing a lawsuit due to the infamous slap from her old friend/Evelyn’s new assistant, Nia Crooks. Although some ladies had beef with Kesha on the last season, she was not a fighter and probably didn’t bring enough drama to the show.The ladies will be replaced!

According to sources, producers will be giving the girls their walking papers any day now to drop what they called “dead weight” from the show.

We’re told Royce was cut because she wasn’t legally allowed to talk about Dwight due to a 2009 gag order, blocking her from discussing her ex in any way. The other girls on the show had also decided to ostracize her, so Royce couldn’t shoot scenes with the rest of the cast.

As for the others — producers think Jennifer’s too big a liability after suing Nia Crooks for slapping her on the show. And Kesha was just too boring.

A rep for VH1 tells TMZ, “We don’t comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.”
