Another day, another Basketball Wives LA casting rumor!  Seeing as Shaunie "Nostrils" O'Neal has several spots to fill, I'm sure it won't be the last gossip we hear about women who may be making an appearance.  We've heard multiple things about a casting shake-up among the ladies, with the most recent being that only Jackie Christie and Draya Michele will be returning.  That should be entertaining to watch…of course, anything would be more entertaining than the current season!  It's now being speculated that Karrine Steffans will be joining the as yet unknown cast.  She better prepare herself though…we all know the newbies never last.  She needs to get on boss Jackie's good side fast. 

I don't know about y'all, but I predict that two seasons from now, this show will actually become The Jackie Christie Show, name change and all.  If I'm right, mark my words, the entire season will be vow renewals, Jackie dressing in slutty pirate Halloween costumes for family gatherings, and her participating in poetry slams.  The poetry slam part is key, given that she won't have any other cast mates with which to interact.  In all honesty, I would much rather watch Wacky Jackie in beret doing beatnik spoken word open mic nights than watch these ladies continue to meet up for coffee/lunch/cocktails/martial arts.  Am I the only one?

I digress, and I know y'all aren't the least bit surprised by that.  :)  I'll veer away from my vision of Jackie as the next Jack Kerouac and focus on the topic at hand.  Karrine is another video vixen.  As far as I know, she's not a wife (like it matters), but correct me if I'm wrong. Right off the bat, we know that she and Draya will either love each other because they have so much in common or hate one another due to petty jealousy.  I don't know about you, but my money is on the latter. 

Hello Beautiful is reporting that Karrine is super close to signing on for the third season.  A source close to her says, “Karrine was not initially interested, but when they came correct with the right money and are allowing her to promote her next book, the offer was tough to turn down.”  She is, after all, the New York Times bestselling author of The Vixen Manual.  Where's my book deal already?

Meanwhile, other women in the franchise are making their dreams come true.  Kenya Bell of original the Basketball Wives series may have been dodging insults and wine bottles during her inaugural season of BBW, but she never lost sight of what she wanted to do…make awesomely bad homemade music videos.  Well, according to VH1, all of her hard work has finally paid off, and she's landed herself a record deal with Bungalo Records.

Of the exciting news, Kenya shares, “I am excited to work with Bungalo Records on this distribution deal and can’t wait for the world to hear my music. It has been a lifelong dream to record an album and share my passion of singing with the world.”

The deal in and of itself is a first.  Broadway World reveals, “The distribution deal is unprecedented: No other reality television personality associated with a franchise of its kind, has successfully signed a major deal to release music.”

Kenya's first single "Hate Me" will drop on December 11.  She touts the tough criticism and shade she received from her BBW co-stars as inspiring her to work harder.  She tells VH1, “I was floored [when Bungalo called me], I was like, ‘Really? Didn’t the basketball wives tell me I had no chance?’ It felt so good to me, obviously they believe that I have something, I have talent, and for me that’s just amazing. I was doubting everything I did before, and I’m learning to not doubt myself no matter what is said. I learned to listen to criticism and change it for the better, but I’m still going to believe in myself and believe I can make this thing happen. It was shocking when I first showed [my co-stars] the video and they were like ‘Eh, what is that??’ like it was the worst thing ever.”

Looks like someone will be laughing all the way to the bank!  I'm glad she proved some of her mean girl counterparts wrong.
