Somewhere, Dwight Howard flashing a big smile ... and not just because Stan Van Gundy will not be coaching the Orlando Magic next season.
Dwight's baby mama Royce Reed just got fired by Basketball Wives along with Jennifer Williams and Kesha Nichols, according to a new report.
It's unclear who will replace them, but the trio is set to get pink-slipped any day now as VH1 looks to drop all "dead weight" from the show.
Royce (pictured) was cut because she isn't allowed to talk about Dwight due to a 2009 court order, blocking her from discussing him in any way.
That's certainly one way to limit her appeal. Some of the other girls on BW also decided to ostracize her, so Royce was 86'd from the cast.
As for the others, producers think Jennifer's too big a liability after suing Nia Crooks for slapping her on the show. Kesha? She's just boring.
A rep for VH1 said in response to the rumored casting notes, “We don't comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.”
