The “Basketball Wives” are drawing a clear line in the sand for the network execs — either up their salaries or they’ll walk.
We’re told filming began last week for the 5th season … but Shaunie O’Neal, Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman and Suzie Ketcham do NOT have locked contracts.
According to our sources, the “Wives” are in the process of renegotiating their contracts and they all want major pay raises, claiming the show does quite well for the network.
Our sources say VH1 is refusing to pony up more cash. We’re told before filming started, execs made it clear that salary increases would not happen and if any cast member had a problem with that … they could be replaced.
Despite the deadlock, we’re told production schedules were sent out and the girls began filming in hopes a deal would be worked out shortly. So far, a deal has not been reached and neither side is budging … so we’re told the “Wives” are planning to walk out next week if VH1 can’t agree to the terms.
Calls to VH1 have not been returned.
Maybe BBW will be replaced with a quality show.Wait we don’t want quality we want untalented drama.Vh1 pay them girls!
Looks like Ja Rule’s two-year sentence will soon come to an end.
After heading into prison in June 2011, Ja Rule will be released from the clink in a matter of months.
According to his website (via IFWT), the former Murder Inc. rapper is scheduled to be liberated from jail on February 21, 2013.
Ja entered prison on June 7, 2011 on charges stemming from an arrest made in 2007 after he left a concert at NYC’s Beacon Theatre. Police pulled over his vehicle and upon inspection found a loaded semi-automatic handgun.
While in jail, Ja has been relatively quiet, releasing his latest album Pain is Love 2 and publishing an open letter addressing what life is like in the detention facility.
Ja is a cool dude!…Free him!

Whoa! Earlier this week, a photo of a woman with no eyebrows and a huge Drake Tattoo inked across her forehead made it’s way around twitter and the web. We here at Nouaintradio.com wanted to know the real story behind what the hell the lady was thinking and what possessed her to get that ridiculous looking mess on her face! It’s obvious she’s a massive Drake fan…or groupie….but we think she took his line in the Rick Ross collab ‘Free Spirit’, ‘Tat my name on you so I know it’s real’ a little too seriously.
