'Basketball Wives' L.A.

Four Wives

Axed From the Show

10/28/2012 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1028_asjetball_wives
"Basketball Wives: L.A." axed four of its six cast members -- and TMZ has learned the catalyst was when Gloria Govan shut producers out of her nuptials to L.A. Clippers star Matt Barnes.

Sources connected to the show tell TMZ the producers are getting rid of Gloria, Laura Govan, Malaysia Pargo and Brooke Bailey because the wives, especially Gloria, weren't allowing "all of their reality to be filmed."

We're told the breaking point came when Gloria (who is known for her feisty ways) jetted off to Vegas to marry Barnes -- and didn't even let the show know about it. Our sources say the producers felt extremely disrespected by her actions and made the decision to clean house.

Our sources tell us the producers haven't told the wives they're getting fired yet, but are already looking for new women to fill their spots.

Draya Michele and Jackie Christie will be the only returning members.

Who will they hire next? Kim Kardashianz is not yet divorced so there is an idea and Kobe Bryantz wife Vanessa, yet maybe shes back home with him and then Pilar Deon Sanders wife,except he is a football player. Will have to wait and see who they are replaced with.

Maybe when Obama gets voted out of office they could hire Michelle Obama? she would fit right in with those girls. Obama can stop by and tell the girls "he is just eye candy" like he told those old bags on The View

Amazing what women with talent will do for money. Especially, after keeping their legs open like 7-11 and being a revolving dude door. But since we're in an era where having talent truly doesn't matter, you get a pass.

who really cares about all these bitches and to follow there families we don't want to watch them not along their families. boot the other two off and cancel the show. they are just like the wives of miami all the fighting who does that, beside low self esteem women. gloria is a wanna be,shaniue, her sister looks like lerch of addams family, may is ok and brooke is a crazy bitch that wants everyone to respect her, jackie is a crazy bitch, and dra is little mousy bitch that is totally lost when it comes to man or woman. I say lets vote them off the PLANET
