Two New "Basketball Wives" REVEALED! Meet Kenya Bell & Kesha Nichols...

The new Miami season of "Basketball Wives" is already showing its controversial colors.  Meeka Claxton has been replaced with not 1, but 2 new chicks.  And they've already started filming.

 

Meet Kenya Bell (left), a former Miss Michigan who stabbed her ex, and Kesha Nichols (right), the chick who got left at the alter via email, inside...

Former Miss Michigan USA Kenya Bell has been revealed as one of the new cast members of the original "Basketball Wives" show.  Kenya was arrested just this past May for stabbing her husband, Golden State Warrior Charlie Bell (who ironically gives relationship advice on his own website).  And it all happened in front of their 2 children.  Supposedly they were in the process of a divorce, but are still technically married. 

According to court papers:

The Prosecutor’s office has charged Kenya Bell, former Miss Michigan USA, with assaulting her husband, basketball star Charlie Bell, with a box cutter on Sunday, said Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton.

The assault occurred inside Charlie Bell’s home in Grand Blanc Township in the presence of two children, Leyton said.

Kenya Bell was arraigned in Genesee District Court today on charges of assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence, according to court records. She was released on $5,000 bond.

Kenya describes herself in many ways on her Twitter profile saying: Former Miss MI USA, mechanical engineer, MBA, Model, Actress & Recording Artist. The Lord is my BFF & Life's what you make it so I choose to make it grand.

Alrighty.  And sources say she's already gotten into some obligatory fights during taping.  I can already guess with who...

 

The second new cast member is Kesha Ni’cole Nichols.  If you recall, her ex fiance' San Antonio Spur Richard Jefferson pretty much left her at the alter.  He called off their $2 million wedding just days before--via EMAIL--and didn't tell the wedding guests until the day OF!  He promised her a 6-figure concession check, but reneged.  And locked her out of their apartment.

Richard met Kesha when he played for the New Jersey Nets and she was a Nets dancer.  Hmm...will she get treated as badly as Royce did?

They're already filming in both Miami and New York and the season will air this coming February.

I could care less about the

I could care less about the show, its players and its story. This is entertainment TV, not PBS, made for viewing pleasure. This show is not meant for education, the introduction of some new found role models or to provide the guideline for life that our children should adhere to. The show is fun, shocking & a break from real life. The show I think you all need is called get your diploma (not GED), learn how to act like an intelligent adult that can actually provide the things a child needs in life like: spelling, grammer, kindness, respect, confidence from knowledge, and how to hold down a job like the employees at the welfare, unemployment or parole offices you all might be familiar with, instead of being the person in line to speak with these individuals. Better yourselves, expect more from yourselves, be the role model you seek so desperately, instead of depending on, & then blaming, everyone else. Its reality TV, not day care.

The show is interesting. I

The show is interesting. I really think Evelyn is hated on for no reason. She is a good mom it seems and is truthful. Sees through all their lies. Her life alone would make a positive show. Rebonding with her dad was very positive. That took a lot to do. Shaunie you need to discuss your life. I know u do some positive things in life. Tami worry about you and your kids. U were on lift every voice,remember to be a light. Let go and let god. Peacemaker is not you. Jennifer tell the truth if your not. Roycce let people find out. Suzie you need to be cut off. Your negative and slick. Team Evelyn!

I guess people have to get it

I guess people have to get it how they live.. I am not easily impressed, the writers and women of these shows could use their influence in a more positive way. They glamorize bad behavior and that aint right, I resent that. If we don't take responsibility for whats being filtered to our generation then who else will. What happened to being our brothers keepers. Is this what civil rights has brought us! You know, we are so quick to forget, it wasn't long ago when the best we had was each other, communities raising children. I just turn the channel. It hurts my heart to see us, women, acting in such an animalistic fashion. Call me peculiar, my favorite show is "Parenthood" on Tuesday nights. Joy Bryant is an actress on the show. It's the only show I watch religiously.. I hope these ladies make their Momma's proud.. With LOVE365..

I am so over y'all bishes acting like y'all are above watching these shows. Y'all ain't fooling nobody. If y'all was so high brow, y'all wouldn't be on a gossip site. I almost sure that Basketball Wives is one of the most watched shows in black households. How many of y'all watch Chelsea Settles? Not enough finger snapping and ghetto fabulousness for you huh?

The reason it's called

The reason it's called BBWives though none of them are actually wives and never were, is because they act just as stupid as the wives on the other "wife" shows out right now. Take Jackie from BBWives LA, for example. She's a wife, but who gives a rip about that when she acts so dumb, childish, loud, obnoxious, and is a trouble maker? It's obvious the show is about women who dated/had or is currently having relations with a B-ball player. Gabrielle Union has been dating one long enough to be on the show. Should she not be on the show because she's not a wife? Hoopz could be on the show, too. Gloria and Matt have broke up, so does that mean she shouldn't be on the show anymore? But wait, she never was a wife according to a lot of people, including herself. But some people would consider that to have been a common law marriage. But does it really it matter? Were you just as frustrated with the with Flavor Flav's title for his show show? Was his show REALLY about the flavor of love? Would it really matter to call the show Basket Ball Player's Cum Buckets/Girlfriends, Ex's, Flings, etc just to make a point that goes without saying? People are still watching the show despite the misleading title, so what difference does it make. I wonder if Preacher's wives of mega church's are about to come out with a reality show. ;-) Now THAT's a show you should expect to be about wives, soley. ;-)
