Just Draya & Jackie Reported To Remain…
Lots of changes are expected to soon take place on the set of BBWLA – and the show’s leading ladies may all have Gloria Govan to thank for the reported shake-up. That’s because insiders say Gloria’s recent decision to head for Las Vegas to elope with her [former] LA Laker – Matt Barnes – has forced the show’s producers to make the decision to clean house.
We’re told BBWLA creators are also pissed Gloria didn’t grant them an invite to bring their cameras and document the couple exchanging their wedding vows.
Though all current cast members aren’t hip to the soon to be reported changes – sources say Draya Michele and Jackie Christie are the only two of the six LA “Basketball Wives” who will be returning for another season. It’s not yet known who will fill the spots of Gloria & Laura Govan, Malaysia Pargo and Brooke Bailey.
Here’s what Laura Govan recently had to say about BBWLA:
“Shaunie has nothing to do with BBW: L.A. If it’s ‘Basketball Wives,’ then let’s hold this title, at least have some basketball affiliation.
At least keep it in the group, just have an affiliation. I’ve been with my guy 12 years, regardless of marriage or not. I’ve paid my dues. Give me some people who have paid their dues.
At the end of the day, the title is called ‘Basketball Wives,’ at least play basketball. Let’s not just have the groupies. Get that for another show. That could be the jump-off show.”
Is Shaunie O’Neal showing Laura and Gloria Govan who’s boss? Of course! Don’t believe me.. Ask Jackie Christie.
