“Basketball Wives” stars Suzie Ketcham and Kenya Bell got into an all out  physical brawl on set last week, that started when one threw a plate of  meatballs at the other. Not surprising of Kenya.

Sources close to the production tell TMZ that the fight went down at a restaurant in L.A. where the cast was taping an episode for season 5 — in which  Kenya (who was fired last year) was temporarily brought back to settle her beef with Suzie.

But it seems to have gotten out of hand. Sources claim the two got into a  heated verbal argument, which quickly escalated when Suzie threw her plate of  meatballs across the table, striking Kenya.

According to our sources, Kenya fired back by lunging at Suzie and then  punches were thrown on both sides. Producers were forced to step in and break it  up.

Sources say fellow cast members Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman walked away — wanting no part in the melee. Police were NOT called to the scene.
