Tonight is the season premiere of Basketball Wives LA and Vh1 has done a bit of a cast overhaul to guarantee more drama. As if they need it! Below are the cast photos and what we can expect this year. You know, other than fighting, bickering, drama and two-faced nonsense?
Basketball Wives: LA premieres tonight on VH1 at 8/7c.
TELL US – WILL YOU BE WATCHING? WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE CAUSING THE MOST DRAMA THIS SEASON?
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.

It’s getting to be that time again! We can stop watching reruns and fillers, because soon our favorite reality shows, along with a few new train wrecks will be premiering. VH1 has just released the premiere dates of three of its programs.
T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle will be returning on Monday, September 3rd at 9PM ET. We’ll follow Tip (who may be the busiest dude in the world) as he continues to star in the Starz series “Boss” and prepares to film the movie “Identity Theft” with Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy. As if that’s not enough, he’ll be promoting his new book and releasing his ninth album…all while filming his family’s reality show.
VH1 has announced that Brooke Bailey and Bambi will become a part of the cast, confirming the rumors that have been swirling around. Both are no strangers to the camera. Brooke was on Wild-N-Out in 2007 with Nick Cannon, and she was featured on E!’s Candy Girls in 2009. She’s also appeared in several rap videos including Lil’ Wayne’s “Lollipop.”
Yesterday it was reported that Imani Showalter was fired from Basketball Wives: LA after she was a no-show at new cast member Brooke Bailey‘s birthday party, which was attended by all the other ladies. VH1 actually started the rumor by speculating whether or not Imani would return on their blog about Brooke’s party.
Well in an EXCLUSIVE, Reality Tea has been told that not only is Imani definitely returning next season, but there’s a second new lady joining the cast!
Basketball Wives LA is in the middle of filming and they are not going to be unseated in the drama department by the veteran BB hook-ups wives! Apparently there’s been many cast changes since last season, most notably Imani Showalter may be out!
Taking her place? Brooke Bailey! Sister2Sister reports that Brooke, formerly of E!’s “Candy Girls” reality show and former fling of NBA player Rashad Lewis, will be joining the cast as yet another woman who was never a wife! Even worse, Brooke was reportedly Rashad’s mistress who came between him and his pregnant girlfriend! All class, no trash there. Brooke is a friend of sorts of Draya Michele. More strikes against her!
Wow, wow, and wow. I didn’t think it would happen, but it looks like all the discord with Basketball Wives may be coming to a head. There is a petition circulating to have the show taken off the air, and there is rarely an episode that doesn’t end in a violent smack down. Bullying abounds. The women act like fools while preaching to their “friends” how they take the high road. Y’all know…you’ve seen it! Well, in a recent interview with TheDailyBeast.com, Tanya Young Williams of Basketball Wives:LA, shares her experience on the show…which she describes as hellish. While she says she’s never watched the original ladies of Miami, she reveals that her time working for Shed Media was horrific. Highlights of that interview are below, but you can read the whole thing here.
