*With Meeka Claxton gone, VH1 has added two new ladies to the Miami cast of “Basketball Wives.”
Meet Kenya Bell (the woman who tried to cut her husband, Charlie Bell of the Golden State Warriors, with a box cutter)and Kesha Ni’Cole Nichols, who is not a basketball wife, but was once engaged to former New Jersey Nets star Richard Jefferson and was once a Nets dancer.
Kenya is a former Miss Michigan USA winner and has two children, Casey and Charlie. Nichols’ ex Jefferson broke up with her via email days before their wedding.
Filming is already underway for the new season with Shaunie O’Neal, Evelyn Lozado, Jennifer Williams, Tami Roman, Suzie Ketcham and Royce Reed.
