At the end of season 4, a total of FOUR women were asked not to return to Basketball Wives—Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed, Kesha Nichols and Kenya Bell. And while we don’t know why they were fired or ‘quit’, what we do know is that we won’t see any of them again on the VH1 show, with the exception of Kenya.
Last season, the 36-year-old ex-wife of Charlie Bell, made her way on the show venturing into the singing game, while making a few enemies on the show. One of the not-so-pleasant highlights, was her argument with cast mate, Evelyn Lozada, who threw a champagne bottle at her. No word with what she’s up to these days, but in a recent interview with VH1, Tami Roman shared that viewers will get a glimpse by Kenya, via an appearance:
I don’t think that we will address Jennifer or Kesha ‘cuz they’re no longer on the show…But we do have a surprise visit from Miss Kenya, which is going to be very, very interesting for people to see.
And for ex-cast mate, Kesha? During her interview, Tami did explain that she has apologized and moved on from the confrontation that she had with her last season.
I keep it straight up, I’m going to say what I need to say and if you don’t like it the let’s have a dialogue about it. And I think with Kesha, she wasn’t willing to have a dialogue, and so I just kept pressing and pressing and pressing, and so it came off a certain way that wasn’t really my intent.
