Ex-Basketball Wives Star

'Hos' Are RUINING the Show!

EXCLUSIVE

"Basketball Wives" should only feature the WIVES of basketball players ... and NOT random "hos" ... so says former cast member Laura Govan who says the recent crop of women are ruining the reality show. 

Govan -- who was axed from the show after Season 2 -- tells us she's got a serious beef with show creator Shaunie O'Neal ... explaining, "I feel like she didn't keep [the show] in the basketball creed."

"She shoulda kept 'Basketball Wives,' basketball wives" ... adding, "There coulda been a 'Housewives or a Ho' show for everybody else later."

Clearly, Laura is talking about cast members like Draya Michele (ex-GF of football player Orlando Scandrick) and Sunday Carter (who reportedly had a daughter with married ex-NBA star Larry Hughes.)

FYI -- Laura doesn't exactly fit the mold herself ... 'cause she ain't a basketball "wife" either -- even though she's been engaged to Gilbert Arenas off and on for years.

Inflated sense of entitlement. Feel grateful that you were on a show, ever, in the first place! Want to keep being seen on the small screen? Get into porn. It's already been established that you can accommodate a huge dong.

I have a couple of names for the show. How about B-Ball Jump-Offs, B-Ball Groupies, or B-Ball Gold Diggers?

She is the biggest EFFIN hoe!!! And she's soooo ugly! She was Shaquille o Neal's mistress for a long time... Please don't talk to that Gonzo.. She's so irrelevant and BBWLA WAS the most boring show ever... Laura and Gloria are not stars they're boring!!

How classless.
Laura, if you need to call another woman a Ho, it says more about your character then the one you are lamely trying to put down. You just embarrass yourself showing how trashy YOU ARE CHOOSING to be.

THAT is on you. Not the on or onese you are trying to insult.

The entire show is trashy and full of unstable women who need chaos and drama to feel relevant.
