The women of Basketball Wives L.A. are back and are as unhinged as ever. At least a few of them are actual wives though, so it is an easier premise to swallow than its original counterpart…sort of. All of the original players are back it appears, although Imani Showalter is missing from the credits and she is replaced by Brooke Bailey.
The show begins with a discussion between Wacky Jackie Christie and her long suffering time spouse and confidante Doug. Jackie is worried about her daughter. After the death of mother, she allowed her daughter to stay in Washington. Jackie isn't sure how well she'll handle this whole "being independent" thing. Doug reveals that Jackie's daughter has texted him a few times, and he thinks she's doing just fine. Jackie starts rationalizing in a way that only Jackie can, blabbering on about sisterhoods and bonds and how easy it is for her to admit when she's wrong. Jackie is ready to apologize to her co-stars, and she has come to the conclusion that she just can't help people who don't want to be helped…and that is all she was trying to do. Again, sort of.
I'm crossing my fingers that BacheloretteEmily Maynard and her Prince Charming One F Jef Holm are actually going to make it work. I mean, if those crazy kids can make, any member of the Bachelor franchise stands a fighting chance, right? RIGHT? Next…
The couple is still vehemently denying the rumors that Emily cheated via inappropriate texts. I'll admit, I am still skeptical about these rumors. I realize the source is Jef's misguided brother which gives the gossip a ton of credibility, but I just don't seem Emily as a girl who would get her kicks from receiving lurid texts. Sending, maybe, but receiving? That's just tacky. The pair has revamped their denial, switching it up from "we are super duper in love and perfect and only have eyes for each other" to a much more relatable "we're not perfect, but we make it work." It's a more plausible excuse at least…
Basketball Wives star and producer Shaunie O'Neal certainly surrounds herself with some classy people, I'd say. You know what they say though, birds of a feather and all that jazz!
The show has been plagued with lawsuits since its inception, but they usually involve peripheral players. Yet another legal entanglement surrounding the show has been settled as well, and it involves Shaunie's friend and "celebrity shoe consultant" Rashidah Ali. Rashidah was featured on a few early episodes of the series as a pal of Shaunie. Rashindah was sued for $10 million after allegedly cutting a man in the face with a box cutter. What is it with these women and their box cutters? Paging Kenya Bell…
Awkward! Oh how the mighty famewhores have fallen. I bet even if there wasn't a picture and title with this post, you'd automatically know which family I was talking about, right? Those krazy Kardashians are always in the news, and the most hilarious part is that these days, it never seems to be positive news. But do they care? Of course not!
In today's Kardashian news, Kim doesn't feel the love in the Queen City, but she does feel it from the Queen B. Plus, Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner decide that high school is just too much for their uber busy schedule. It's hard being a teen, y'all!
It's not a good time to married to a basketball player apparently. Divorce is in the air for not one, but two, Basketball Wives stars. I guess no one should be surprised, given that being a wife isn't necessarily a precursor to be on the show!
As the custody battle for the couple's three boys heats up, more mud-slinging is occurring between the pair. I can honestly say that I never saw all of this madness coming. I thought if anyone in the Bravo franchise could have a civil divorce it would be these two. I hate that I was so wrong!
Who isn't addicted to Here Comes Honey Boo Boo? Not only has the show spawned some epic one-liners, I really think this cheese ball consuming, mud bogging, auction food buying, subtitle requiring family really does care about one another.
Now June Shannon, the forklift foot suffering matriarch, is speaking out to all her haters…and she even has a famous hater among them!
The ladies of Basketball Wives L.A. are back and more dramatic than ever! The season starts this Monday, September 10 at 8PM ET on VH1.
Jackie Christie deals with letting her daughter go out on her own, and she's a bit unnerved to find out that her daughter has been in touch with Doug. Given their interactions, Jackie is still as cray cray as ever. You've got to love this woman.
Laura Govan is back in Los Angeles from Orlando with her new body and a positive outlook on her relationship. Her sister Gloria Govan is working on her relationship Matt Barnes after an eight month break-up, and she's creating a cookbook. The sisters pretend they haven't had much contact in the eight months since filming last wrapped. Oh VH1, you are so subtle with the scripting!
Draya Michelle and Malaysia Pargo are also back for another season. Malaysia has spent the interim in Atlanta, and her jewelry line is doing great. Draya has been modeling up a storm, but she wants to focus solely on her bikini line. This pair of friends is much more willing to give Jackie another chance than the sisters Govan.
