Former “Basketball Wives: LA” cast member Laura Govan is beefin’ with the show’s creator Shaunie O’Neal.

Govan told TMZ that the show should only feature the WIVES of basketball players … and NOT random “hos.” Yeah, let that sink in for a moment. Anyway, the bottom line, according to her, is that the recent crop of women are ruining the reality show.

Govan — who was axed from the show after Season 2 — tells us she’s got a serious beef with show creator Shaunie O’Neal … explaining, “I feel like she didn’t keep [the show] in the basketball creed.”

“She shoulda kept ‘Basketball Wives,’ basketball wives” … adding, “There coulda been a ‘Housewives or a Ho’ show for everybody else later.”

Clearly, Laura is talking about cast members like Draya Michele (ex-GF of football player Orlando Scandrick) and Sunday Carter (who reportedly had a daughter with married ex-NBA star Larry Hughes.)

BTW, Laura’s kinda talking out of both sides of her mouth here because, well, er, she’s not a legitimate basketball “wife” either … even though she’s been engaged to Gilbert Arenas off and on for years.
