Well it finally happened! Royce Reed is officially dunzo with Basketball Wives. Amid rumors that she along with Jennifer Williamshad been fired from the show after the tumultuous season 4, Royce confirmed yesterday that she is, in fact, leaving the show.
Royce announced the news on twitter where she explained to fans she won't be returning next season.
Happy Election Day, dear readers! Since everyone is in a voting state of mind we decided to have a little fun on this ever-so important day. Reality TV stars are always campaigning for favoritism (and sometimes buying their fans on twitter), so we got wondering, what stars could we – in our wildest dreams – see make it to the White House?
So cast your ballot for one of these fair candidates below. And remember this is all in fun so keep it funny, snarky, and apolitical!
3. Abby Lee Miller: She will frighten and intimidate foreign leaders into staying in line – or else!
4. Donald Trump: Our national embarrassment (that hair!) might as well take it all the way. Plus, he could hopefully pay for his own campaign.
5. Shaunie O'Neal: The HBIC of Basketball Wives knows how to dodge flying wine bottles, flinging insults, and a whole host of unruly people with a half-smile. I think she could whip congress into shape without so much as smudging her lipstick!
Evelyn Lozada has had a tough year. I mean the lady had one of the shortest marriages, like, ever – even shorter than Kim Kardashian's! With all the drama in her personal life the Basketball Wives star has turned to exercise and healthy eating.
Evelyn recently landed a huge, six-figure endorsement deal to promote an organic and caffeine free energy shot called youthH2O. And she's not stopping there! Apparently Evelyn (whose spinoff Ev and Ocho was canceled before it even aired) is planning for a life post-reality TV and she's decided the way to make bank is in the fitness market.
While Gloria and the others have not been officially let go, Gloria is convinced the producers are just stringing them along for now. In an interview with TMZ, Gloria says, "They’re telling us that we are not fired … I think they are just using us and telling us we are not fired so that we will show up to the reunion."
"It’s not that it is a surprise to me… just the way they put it out there is more disappointing than anything. I heard it through the grapevine," Gloria explains. "It was a conscious decision to not put my relationship out there since day one. I guess my real life wasn't as exciting as it was supposed to be for the show."
When asked about not inviting VH1's cameras to her wedding, Gloria laughs a little and says, "A lot of people weren't invited to the wedding!"

Okay, I think the majority of us can agree that most of the reality shows we love tuning into need to clean house as far as the cast mates. It's nice to think they may actually listen to the viewers when people tire of watching such toxic relationships (Real Housewives of New Jersey, anyone?). However, when the producers clean house in what appears to be an attempt to gain more drama, I'm not on board.
What do I mean? It seems that the folks at VH1 are getting rid of several ladies from Basketball Wives: LA while leaving the only two that despise each other in good standing with the show. I don't know how much Shaunie O'Neal has to do with Los Angeles franchise (if any of y'all know, please enlighten me), but given her penchant for drama and cattiness (you need not look any further than the original Basketball Wives to know I'm right), this has her name written all over it.
Please know that I don't take any allegations of domestic abuse lightly. It's serious and scary stuff, and no one deserves it, even if they've thrown plates and wine bottles at their co-stars. NO ONE should be in that position (including the co-star who was the target of the bottle!). I'm coming from a place of personal knowledge, so I do know that sometimes (not always) it takes two people to fight. However, when one party gets physical, all bets are off and it's not pretty. Plus, no matter what kind of crap one party can spew, words will never beat fists…which is why the fact that paper beats rock still baffles me to this day!
That said, whatever opinions I had of Evelyn (and, as you can imagine, they weren't pleasant) before the domestic abuse claims were thrown out the window once Chad admitted to wrongdoing. Both of them need help. However, it seems that instead of working on themselves, they both choose to let their drama play out on Twitter. Because that's okay. I have so much to say, but I'll refrain because I don't want to appear to be apathetic. They both need to hermit and keep their business out of the media. I hope that statement was PC enough!
Oh Basketball Wives and Basketball Wives L.A., what would we do without you? From the ridiculous to the boring to the lunch meet-ups to the over-the-top crazy personalities, you both run the gamut. Here's a little dose of some BBW and BBW LA news to quench your thirst for some daily trash! I kid, I kid…for once news about these ladies (the originals, especially!) is relatively tame!
First up, Evelyn Lozada is a busy little beeotch! Not only has her private marital dramas played out in the public eye, she is working on several projects. I'm guessing she's trying to stay busy to keep her mind off of all her issues with soon-to-be-ex-husband Chad Ochocinco Johnson. We certainly can't blame her for that now, can we?
