10/26/2010 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Controversy is raging behind the scenes of "Football Wives" -- all over a woman who hurled projectiles at another castmate on the show.

During Sunday night's premiere episode -- there was one official cast member missing from the show, Mercedes Nelson (left) ... reportedly the ex-girlfriend of Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber.

Multiple sources involved with the production tell us hell broke loose while the girls were taping a scene recently ... after Nelson "flipped out" and threw a bunch of tabletop items at Chanita Foster (right).

We're told producers shut down production and "came to an agreement" that it would be best for Mercedes to leave the show because it just "wasn't for her."

Mercedes was suspiciously absent from Sunday night's premiere ... but VH1 is adamant that she wasn't asked to leave, explaining, "She only ended up being in a few episodes due to story lines."

As for the illegal forward pass -- VH1 admits, "she does throw something" ... but won't reveal details ... because they plan on using it in the show.

She's gone now due to story lines? I thought this was reality TV lol. About as real as all the Kardashian shows. They were caught last year altering and then retaping what Kris and Bruce said.

From the Housewives of New York, Bev Hills to Atlanta and all the other um...girlfriend, baby mama shows... I see they are all just insecure women who need a man to define them. They all have hood tendencies about them with the way they lash out at each other. They are all "kept" women in my opinion. For the most part these women should be much more appreciative than they are.

I watched the premiere and I can see why someone would chuck something at Chanita Foster! She is way too high strung and full of drama. Granted, the lady probably should not have came to the bible study if she had to leave early but the other wife egged her on to come and it was a way for them all to meet. They had lunch afterwards and spoke about the 2 who left early and Chanita went off all over-dramatic when it wasn't even her home the bible study was held at! Let the other wife have her say.

You can tell she is all about making a scene. It was sort off a bad thing to leave but the reaction was totally over the top and for the cameras and to make her mark on the audience but it was NOT A GOOD LOOK. I already have no desire to watch this show just to see Chanita go off on each person in the cast. Fail!

Saw a clip of one of these bimbos saying there's "the haves" and "the have nots". Obviously, they are the have nots - have not an ounce of dignity. Unbelievable.

I watched the premiere and I find it interesting that the two people on the show that ugly Chanita picked fights with was the pretty girls on the show. After watching the show I thought wow football players will marry anybody. Other than Dion Sanders wife they were either fat, ugly, or both.

I could see how Mercedes would throw something at her. Chanita seems like a control freak that needed someone to put her in her place. Besides Chanita's got nothing on Mercedes this girl is a knockout (no pun intended) can't wait to see what really went on between the two of them.

I know mercedes, and she is FAR from drama and is a real sweet person. Guess we'll have to see how it plays off in the show. But I can probably say, Mercedes will be the most level headed girl on the show.

These hot bitches pretend to be civil to get married and continue NOT working, but their true ghetto selves come out every time.
