The producers of “Basketball Wives” are upping the drama level big time for season 4 — adding two new cast members … one of which was arrested earlier this year for allegedly trying to stab her husband!
Sources close to the show tell TMZ … Kenya Bell will be joining the show this coming season. We’re told during filming so far … Kenya has already assumed the role of villain and gotten into a few fights with the girls.
Bell is a former Miss Michigan USA who was arrested for allegedly trying to stab her husband, Charlie Bell, with a box cutter.
The other new cast member, we’re told, is Kesha Ni’cole Nichols. She was set to marry Richard Jefferson back in 2009, but he bailed on the $2 million wedding the night … telling her via email.
According to our sources, Nichols talks openly about the wedding on the show and has thus far been well-liked by the rest of the cast.
