They'll be back before you know it! Yes, I'm talking about the less violent but equally ridiculous compared to their counterparts women of Basketball Wives: L.A. VH1 seems to have us in some sort of choke hold with these girls, yet I don't fight it. Odd, I know.
With some new cast members in the mix (and the Sisters Govan departing), hopefully there will be some new excitement in BBW: LA (read: not boring as heck). Not surprisingly, the show's breakout star Draya Michele is all about promoting the series (and herself of course) to whoever will listen.
Hop Hollywood recently caught up with Bambi at the BET Hop Hop Awards. When asked about her presence on the upcoming season of L&HH ATL, she shyly replies, "I'm pretty sure. Maybe a little bit." Does "a little bit" mean a little bit more than the hot tub scene with Benzino when Kirk Frost got into a whole menage of trouble? Only time will tell, I guess. Bambi also shares that she is totally done with all things BBW: LA, although her friendship with Malaysia is still solid. As for Scrappy's ex-fiance and the mother of his child Erica Dixon, Bambi is pretty much "Erica who?"
I wonder if Bambi is the princess that Queen Momma Dee has been waiting on her prince to find?

And speaking of new ladies, Basketball Wives creator Shaunie O'Neal isn't too thrilled with newbie Tasha Marbury. She's used to having people kiss her bum, so I think Shaunie's a bit thrown by the fact that Tasha doesn't seem to give a tiny toot about Nostrils or her posse of puppets.
I've got two pieces of Basketball Wives news that are going to make you want to cry in your Cheerios. First of all,Laura Govan had a birthday party, and you weren't invited. I'll give you a few minutes to get over that burn.
Recovered yet? Okay, good. I know we're all supportive ofTami Roman proving that she's changed and doesn't mind talking to the hand (oh wait…) and can have an argument without getting heated or violent (ehh…), so you'll be disappointed to hear that she still thinks that Evelyn Lozada should reconcile with Chad Ochocinco Johnson. Do we as a society really need that additional drama? I think not.
It's funny how one franchise can appeal to you so much more than another. I definitely prefer Love & Hip Hop Atlanta to its original counterpart (who doesn't?), and there are Housewives series I watch far more religiously than others. Oddly enough, I can't figure out which Basketball Wives franchise I prefer…is that saying something?
I do know that I enjoy Draya Michele's antics on BBWLA, and with her kooky cast mates, she usually comes off as the most stable. She certainly has a past, but I'd like to think she's grown up and learned from her mistakes. Who knows though? After all, she is starring in a drama-fueled, anger laden reality show…so the joke could be on me!
What's that you say? She's biffles with Real Housewives of Atlanta'sNeNe Leakes? Well, that explains it! Laura will be making an appearance in the upcoming wedding series I Dream of NeNe as one of the Neenster's bridesmaids. Not shockingly, she's talking all about her experience!
When we last saw Bambi, she was nuzzling the neck chin and shoulders of my favorite bobble head Benzino (seriously, I kind of adore him) pre-Kirk Frost threesome in the woods. Well, now she's moved on to one of Benzino's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast mates, and it's too bad that this didn't happen before the reunion because an altercation between Zino and this guy would have been amizzznigheeazing!
Gloria has been vocal about leaving the show in the past (I'd always just assumed she wasn't asked to return, which could very well be the case), and it was rumored that VH1 was none to pleased when she eloped mid-season of BBW LA with NBA player Matt Barnes and did not invite camera crews to capture the nuptials. In your face, VH1!
