Basketball Wives: LA is barely halfway through their first season and already the on screen drama has made its way off screen. Viewers noticed Kimsha Artest went M.I.A. without so much as an explanation after the first episode. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, an alleged Facebook rant popped up blaming Shaunie O’Neal for her absence. Even though the rant was quickly dismissed by her “partner,” NBA baller Ron Artest, we think Kimsha should be celebrating her departure from Basketball Wives: LA and here are three reasons why:
She Hated Los Angeles
From the very first episode Kimsha made it clear that L.A. was not her kind of town. She told everyone flat out that she was a New York girl who couldn’t stand the phonies on the West Coast. Not being locked down in the city due to shooting schedules frees Kimsha up to leave LA and head back to the concrete jungle where she’s obviously more comfortable.
