We're not sure that "artistic differences" is a legitimate excuse to quit a reality show, but that's what Basketball Wives star Royce Reed is using to get out of her contract.

Apparently, she won't be returning for Season 4 of the show, and confidentiality or professionalism be damned, because she sprang the news to the world on Twitter.

"As of right now I have decided NOT 2return 4 Season 4 of BBW due 2 artistic differences. Things may change but as of now, NO!" she wrote.

As we previously reported, contract negotiations were progressing slowly, presumably because the ladies were holding out for more money, and the producers were getting fed up.

But Royce's relationships with the fellow BBall Wives have also virtually disintegrated, so it's pretty difficult to star on a reality show when no one will film with you (ahem, Danielle Staub).

Are you surprised Royce quit?
