As if any of you were planning to watch the fifth season of Basketball Wives, I have some breaking news that may just send you over the edge completely.  TMZ.com is reporting that three of the ladies (and yes, these may actually be considered ladies) are getting axed from the show.  While nothing has been confirmed, VH1’s official statement is, “We don’t comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.”  However, when you hear who is getting the boot–and why–I doubt you’ll be surprised.

First to hit the road is Royce Reed.  Why?  I would say it’s obvious.  First, a lot of the women, including Queen Bee Shaunie O’Neal herself, refuse to film with Royce.  I am guessing that makes it more difficult to have a legitimate story line.  She doesn’t go on the cast trips, isn’t invited to birthday dinners, and misses out on all the bottle throwing and brawls.  Lucky.  Second, due to a gag order that has been in place since 2009, she isn’t even allowed to say the name of the basketball player to whom she was never a wife.  Sorry, Royce, but the writing seems to be on the wall for you.
