Exclusive Update: Basketball Wives L.A. Producers Respond To Kimsha Artest’s Disappearance From The Show


The fact that Kimsha Artest appeared on two episodes of Basketball Wives L.A. and then seemed to have disappeared has not gone unnoticed by fans of the show. Last week, we even reported about some fake drama that the internet seemed to create between Shaunie O’Neal and Artest after a phony Facebook account for Artest was created, and the author wrote angry posts directed at Shaunie for being edited out of the show. O’Neal denied there was drama, saying she’s never even met Artest, and now we have the straight dope from the Basketball Wives producers themselves on what happened to Artest. Here you have it, the final word:

“When Kimsha Artest signed on to be in ‘Basketball Wives: LA,’ we were very excited to have her onboard. That is why we were confused and disheartened when after a limited number of days shooting she stopped showing up for filming. This is the sole and only reason Kimsha has not appeared on more episodes of the series. Her minimal coverage on the show was entirely her decision and not that of Shed Media, VH1 or Executive Producer Shaunie O’Neal.‘Basketball Wives: LA’ continues to be a ratings success for VH1 every Monday night.”
