Much like the Real Housewives franchise, cast turnover was pretty high between season one and season two of Hockey Wives. It seems contract negotiations are not just for the pros, as only five of the original ten wives were brought back, adding in quite a few fresh faces for season two, including singer Keshia Chante. While the contract couldn’t be worked out for some, it seems others were either asked not to return and some refused because they weren’t able to balance their already hectic lives with that of being a reality TV star.
