'Basketball Wives' L.A.

Four Wives

Axed From the Show

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.

I don't blame Gloria for doing her thing privately. VH1 is full of ****. They are not paying them that much of money.

I hope Gloria and Laura are fired. Gloria has always been nasty and Laura was completely mean this past season. They are ugly inside and out!

Bambi is trying way to hard.....being rude and vulgar is not keeping it real hon. You are doing everything to earn your keep on this show. This show is making no more sense with all these new "non BBW" on the show.
