Jayson Williams' Estranged Wife

OUT of 'Basketball Wives: LA'

11/14/2011 7:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1114_tanya_williams_EX_01Tanya Williams, the estranged wife of incarcerated former NBA star Jayson Williams, will not be back for season 2 of "Basketball Wives: LA" ... in fact, she wasn't even invited to the reunion show!

Sources close to the production tell TMZ ... Tanya never fit in with the rest of the girls, who often didn't know what to talk to Tanya about.

Tanya filmed enough material for the entire season ... but we're told producers decided to phase her out after the first few episodes and did not invite her to partake in the reunion episode, which airs next week.

Williams tells us producers informed her manager they did not want to "move forward" with the relationship. She says the split is amicable, telling us, "I wish everyone involved continued success with the show."

Calls to VH1 were not returned.

She's out because she has class and wasn't going to embarrass herself on national tv acting like an idiot. She needs to pitch her own reality show - very positive, classy woman.

She's the only one of the bunch that conducted herself like a lady. The others are have zero class, they are a complete embarrassment.

What about Metta's ex/current whatever she is. She too was only in a few episodes.

I think they both were like, this isn't for us. They weren't catty enough I guess.

Translation - she didn't argue and fight!

How dare she be folmed for a reality show and act like she has taught manners!

She was hard to understand I really didn't care for her on the show, but she was one of the very small minority of real wives.

This is not news. She was one the first episode and 2 minutes of the second. Ron Artest's ex wife was only on the 2nd episode. If they filmed a season worth of material with her then it must have been by herself. Clearly she wasn't interacting with the other ladies much.

They could've talked about that she is ugly.

Translation - Inserting an intelligent articulate woman in with a bunch of women concerned only with constant gossiping, bickering, backstabbing and complaining is very bad for ratings. After all, can't have people logically resolving issues without resorting to ghetto fist fights.
