This isn’t particularly new news, but Laura Govan isn’t the biggest fan of Shaunie O’Neal, the creator of VH1’s ‘Basketball Wives’. Laura and her sister, Gloria Govan, have been casts on Basketball Wives LA (Gloria started off on Basketball Wives’ original version filmed in Miami) for more than two seasons. Both sisters will not be featured on the new season of Basketball Wives LA and there are conflicting reports as to why they left. Some suggest they were fired (after Gloria eloped to her NBA baller hubby Matt Barnes in Vegas), while other say they quit because they were un-pleased with the direction of the show. This week, TMZ caught up with Laura asking her about her experience on the show. The reality star (who is a bridesmaid on NeNe Leakes’ wedding special show) remarked:
“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.”
So who exactly is she referring to? Well, we’re not sure. In past seasons, she’s had a not-so-pleasant relationship with Draya Michele, a current Basketball Wives LA cast member. Draya, along with other past and current members are not in relationships with professional basketball players. In fact, between both shows, the only married basketball wife is Jackie Christie and Malaysia Pargos. With that said, doe she have a point or is she bitter for not being on the new season?
And speaking of Draya, is she hinting at a new spin-off show in the works. Earlier this week, she shared the photo above, writing:
You guys want this TV show or what ?!? #Fineassgirls
Fine*ss girls is the name of Draya’s clothing line and she refers to her group of girlfriends ‘Fine*ss Girls’. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open on this rumor. But in the meantime, what are your thoughts on a rumored show featuring Draya and friends?
