'Basketball Wives' Star

I'm Getting Fired Over

My NBA Hubby

11/2/2012 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Basketball Wives L.A." star Gloria Govan tells TMZ ... she's convinced VH1 is giving her the chop because her husband Matt Barnes refused to participate on the show this season. 

Govan says she has yet to be officially released from the show ... but says the writing is on the wall and knew it was only a matter of time when she didn't let producers film her wedding over the summer.

Govan says she believes producers are waiting to give her walking papers until AFTER the reunion show ... because they want her to show up. Govan says she hasn't decided if she'll go ... but it sounds like she's leaning towards no.

Govan also told us she's pissed at NBA commish David Stern for suspending her hubby for the season opener ... and says she's down to get all WWE on his ass if they ever cross paths.

Yes give her the boot. I did notice they are giving her less air time this season. The same as they did to Royce before they let her go.

Even if this is true, so what? It is a TV show for entertainment purposes. Having a pro star on the show increases ratings. If they want to get rid of her for that reason they can.

Eww I never liked Gloria in the first season and I still don't like her now. She acts like her life is better than everyone and don't stink. Yeah that's why her hubby was arrested for DV and now whatever other he got in trouble for. Yuck go away. I stopped watching the show after the first season.

Well I personally really like Gloria Govan and hope she stays on the show. She provides a positive image of women which is very much needed in this genre. The problem with reality shows is that by definition the reality must be of a negative nature. Viewers are not going to tune in to watch these women promote cookbooks/web-videos or jewelry/clothing lines. This simply does not translate into ratings.

Come on people why so harsh, if you were giving the opportunity to be on a reality TV you would do it too, and just because she didn't invite vh1 to her weeding she's getting fired, what ever happened to ones right.

I guess she'll be the next reality show ghetto hoodrat to go on "Iyanla Fix My Life" and fake cry to change public perception of themself. My guess is that she and her sister, Laura, will end up giving Iyanla a beat down after they throw a drink in her face.

Whether you like it or not, people watch this show. The pattern for these basketball wives and housewives shows is that the people that get paid the most and stay are the ones willing to fight and threaten the most. Jackie and Tami should go far.
