Bball 'Wife' Whistled for Boredom -- Getting Bounced?

2/19/2011 3:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One of the stars on VH1's "Basketball Wives" is learning the hard way -- go completely off the hinges and be crazy ... or face losing your job.

0219_royce_reed_ex_getty
Sources close to the reality show tell TMZ, Royce Reed's BW days are numbered -- and it's all because of the ongoing legal battle with her Orlando Magic baby daddy Dwight Howard.

As we previously reported, Royce can't talk about Dwight in the media because of a 2009 gag order. That injunction SEVERELY inhibits her ability to participate in the show ... aka ... she's boring.

We're told producers believe Royce needs to be replaced ASAP ... but haven't found anyone up to snuff yet.

Royce tells TMZ she has other options and, "If they are indeed searching for a replacement for me it is what it is. It all seems petty and immature to me"

This is BS. This show is about some lonely ex girlfriends pissed off their meal ticket is gone trying to stay relevent(btw its not working). The show should be called "Women formerly associated with basketball" Shaunie dont play with me, Royce don't have to talk about Dwight & you know it plus you knew from the jump she had a gag order. Shaunie are you gonna get Hoopz on the show, she really has a basketball boyfriend. Did you go to the BBal wives luncheon yesterday oh yeah you aren't a bball wife. Your glory days are over Shaunie & you make me sick.

I Love me some Royce and whatever hatin' ass Shauni does, remember this Shauni; you will get what's coming to you. Talk to the alcoholic on the show like you were talking to Royce and see what happens. I wanna see that you and tami the alcoholic go at it! Royce is a class act, pretty, and has so much going for herself she don't need you Shauni! Its not her fault your boytoy finds her much more attractive and interesting. Knowing Royce, she don't want him cause he was with you. She is a class act! More than can be said for you Shauni.

Is everyone forgetting how skanky and way out there Royce was on the 1st season??? Yall acting like she's some saint being picked on. She's just a baby's mama trying to act like she's above drama, yet she gets in the middle of everything by being 2-faced. Suzie, Royce and that weird chick Ashley need to go!!!

To me shanie o'neal is a biiter bitch and quite frankly i dont like the bitch. Royce minds her own business and dont keep up mess like them and they mad. all this is coming from a women who had to hide money and **** to make a living. Basketball wives but just about those bitches aint married waste of time waste of a show.

How about Shaunee replace her with hoopz (shaq's woman). I'm sure that won't be a boring replacement!

Keisha I don't know how you say Royce minds her own business. I have never seen someone so 2-faced. She was supposed to be Suzie's friend. But yet, told everyone where Suzie was having lunch at and while they were still outside acting like she was getting ready to fight along with the rest of the girls (yes I did say girls).

Royce as stated she is the intelligent one not a lot of drama like the rest of the young ladies. It will be a loss if she's off the show it nice to see someone with class. I was really shocked at Shaunee's behavior in Spain, she is really ghetto, my opinion of her has changed, I think Shaq did the right thing and got rid of her.

My problem with these so-called reality programs is this; they expose the worse of our women. The show makes big money off of ignorance and bad language, (including curseing). When will our community seek to betray ourselves better than this. We have better women in our community then these girls. These girls have little or no morals, if they are they don't have much education. The only thing that they have is a body and the ability to have sex and produce a baby. Not much of a resume, what ashame.
