Basketball Wives LA: Tanya Williams Will Not Be Back for Season 2
Rucuss staffNovember 14, 2011
Tanya Williams will not be back for a second season of Basketball Wives LA.
The estranged wife of incarcerated former NBA player Jayson Williams wasn’t even invited to the reunion show. Although Williams filmed enough footage for an entire season, producers didn’t feel she clicked with the rest of the cast. Williams was only shown in the first two episodes.
Sources close to the production tell TMZ … Tanya never fit in with the rest of the girls, who often didn’t know what to talk to Tanya about.
Tanya filmed enough material for the entire season … but we’re told producers decided to phase her out after the first few episodes and did not invite her to partake in the reunion episode, which airs next week.
Williams tells us producers informed her manager they did not want to “move forward” with the relationship. She says the split is amicable, telling us, “I wish everyone involved continued success with the show.”
Calls to VH1 were not returned.
