'Basketball Wives'

On Set Brawl

... Meatballs Thrown!!!

Beware of flying meatballs ... "Basketball Wives" stars Suzie Ketcham and Kenya Bell got into an all out physical brawl on set last week ... that started when one threw a plate of meatballs at the other.

Sources close to the production tell TMZ that the fight went down at a restaurant in L.A. where the cast was taping an episode for season 5 -- in which Kenya (who was fired last year) was temporarily brought back to settle her beef with Suzie. 

But it didn't go as planned ... OR DID IT??? We're told the two got into a heated verbal exchange ... which quickly escalated when Suzie threw her plate of meatballs across the table, striking Kenya.

According to our sources, Kenya fired back by lunging at Suzie and then punches were thrown on both sides. Producers were forced to step in and break it up.

Our sources say fellow cast members Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman walked away -- wanting no part in the melee. Police were NOT called to the scene.

We're told the fight WILL be shown in the upcoming season. Of course it will.

I've never wasted my time watching reality sh*t like this. But, if these nobodys act like this in front of the camera, they probably are the ones who put the "fun" back in "disfunctional" back at home, behind closed doors. What an absolute disgrace.

I just wonder where Executive producer/show creator/fellow castmate, Shaunie O'Neal, who said the show was going to rise above the fights this season, was when this all went down. I'll bet she didn't show at the dinner because she knew what might happen. She wants to act like she is at the level of the other "ladies" on the show.

It was staged. Their acting is worse than the fat strippers on the Jerry springer show.

Now Evelyn and tammi want to be anti-violence? They have already displayed their true ghetto colors in the previous seasons. These braids are nothing but violent gold diggers who will do anything for celeb status. I used to love this show. Until Evelyn and tammi (my two previous favs)...who are grown woman with kids, started this freakishly violent, bullying...and then acting like they did no wrong. You people should be ashamed that girls actually look up to you wastes of space.

"Producers were forced to step in and break it up".

Really? Would these be the same producers who orchestrated and scripted the melee in the first place? What a horrible example these women are setting for their children, and all just to be on television. Go out and get real jobs, ladies. The few shekels you are earning on tv are not worth the loss of your children's respect.
