Basketball Wives: LA star Gloria Govan claims she will not be surprised if she’s fired from the show.

After rumors circulated that Gloria, her sister Laura Govan, Brooke Bailey and Malaysia Pargo were going to be fired at the end of the season, TMZ caught up with Matt Barnes’ wife to get her thoughts about the firings. She told the website that although the producers have denied the rumors, she believes they’re just being used for ratings so they will show up to the reunion.

Gloria told TMZ:

“I’ve just heard about it and I kind of had a feeling [it was coming].   The producers and I really weren’t on the same page since the get-go. It’s not  that it’s a surprise to me, it’s just the way that they put it out there is a  little more disappointing than anything.  I heard it through  the grapevine and that’s a bit more shocking, more than anything. But like I  said, it was a conscious decision to not put my relationship out there since day  one. I guess my real life wasn’t as exciting as it was supposed to be for this  show.

A lot of people weren’t invited to the wedding. Honestly, we talked and I  told them since day one that I wasn’t going to put my relationship out there.  They touched a little bit on my reality with the movie  and the cookbook coming out, but I guess they just weren’t really [there] and  were a little disappointed that I wasn’t going to have Matt on the show. I’m  just really disappointed in VH1, the way it came out. They’re telling us we’re  not fired and they’ve been sending emails [but] I think [they’re doing that to  get us to the reunion]. I think they really want Brooke who obviously was in a  physical altercation [to show up to the reunion] so I know that’s a big deal. My sister is always hilarious on the  show. I think they’re just using us and telling us we’re not fired so that we  just show up to the reunion.”

Meanwhile, VH1 released a statement denying the four women will be fired from the show.

The time has come to set the record straight. We can officially tell you all  that despite the widespread reports, none of them are true. There have been  absolutely no casting decisions made regarding the next season of the show. Some  of the ladies have responded to the allegations, with Brooke Bailey tweeting “Not all rumors you hear are true….Don’t go off of what you hear, but what you  see instead,” and Laura Govan also responding “P.S. ya girl ain’t never been  fired from ANYTHING in life. eff what ya heard!” We agree with Laura and  Brooke…don’t believe everything you hear.

A source told TMZ that the fired stars weren’t allowing “all of their reality to be filmed.” Producers reached their breaking point with Gloria after she didn’t notify them she was getting married to Barnes in Las Vegas. Producers have already begun their search for replacements.
