VH1 loves a franchise crossover, doesn’t it? First it has people hopping from city to city for Love & Hip Hop, and now the network is following its own lead with the ladies of Basketball Wives! I can’t say I’m surprised, but no show in either franchise is going to live up to the ratchet behavior and entertainment that Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta has brought to the small screen! It hit struck gold with that cast for sure!
We’ve got the inside scoop on the upcoming season of Basketball Wives: LA! Along with some new faces, some of the franchise’s veterans will be returning. Joining them will also be Shaunie O’Neal (it’s been a long time since I’ve written about ol’ Nostrils!) and Tami Roman who previously made their home in Miami on the original Basketball Wives. That’s a recipe for drama if I’ve ever heard!
It’s Oscar mania everywhere as we lead up to Sunday night’s awards ceremony. And while our favorite reality stars will most likely NEVER attend the Oscars, much less WIN one, they still love to party and celebrate anyway!
Basketball Wives LAis finally returning for season 4 after a long hiatus, but the Miami version of the show has been canceled leaving us only with LA, which is currently filming and fraught with plenty of drama – all of it reportedly centered around Draya Michele! Oh, and Shaunie, O’Neal is back.
The show has cycled through a lot of cast members since it first aired – and after adding Sundy Carter and Brittish Williams last season, producers fired them this season! Last season ended on a dreadful note when Draya flat-out refused to film the reunion with those two ladies. A source tells us the drama is even more insane behind the scenes!
The shiz-nigh-ee is about to hit the fan-ishtas-ee. No, not really…I just love channeling my inner Lil' Scrappy. The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star says the darndest things! Scrap has had close to a dozen eggs scrambling to get in his pants this season, but Momma Dee is cracking down on the ladies. Not just any woodland creature can enter her kingdom!
Speaking of, "the Bambi," despite what we saw on Monday's episode, Scrappy and Bambi are still together and more in love than ever…which, in Scrap's case, means he's finally in love!
What is it about rites of passage when it comes to reality stars? If they aren't releasing their own cookbook, they're getting stopped on suspicion of drunk driving. I guess there are more ways than one to maintain notoriety once a show finishes filming for the season!
And another one bites the dust. Let's face it, the marriages that endure in light of reality television success are far outnumbered by those that fail. Even the unions that seem the strongest out of the limelight tend to seem cursed the second one (or both!) of the couple allows cameras to film their every move! The most recent victim of this phenomenon is Basketball Wives: LA's star Maylasia Pargo.
Malaysia and soon-to-be-ex husband Jannero Pargo were married in 2006. The reality star claims that she and the Charlotte Hornets NBA player have been separated since December of 2012. I guess that would explain why he's never featured on the show!
It's the battle of the VH1 reality stars! Not only are they feuding on their individual shows, two from different shows are now battling it out on Twitter. I'm sure that Mona Scott Young is laughing all the way to the bank these days!
Both Basketball Wives: LA and Love & Hip Hop have participants who recognize that drama is key to staying relevant. The more fighting and upheaval the better! BBW: LA's newbie Sundy Carter is learning quickly how things work. Not only was there a brawl at the season three reunion, but now Sundy is facing off with Erica Mena on social media. Yup, sounds about right!
Do y'all miss Brooke Bailey on this season of Basketball Wives: LA? That's what I thought. While Brooke was likeable on the show, I didn't feel like she had much of a story line unless she was fighting with Jackie Christie or feuding with former friend Draya Michele. She just didn't seem to be around a lot.
Of course, don't feel bad for Brooke no longer being featured on everyone's guilty pleasure of a train wreck. Wanting to set an example for her two children, Brooke has gone back to school and is focused on her new cleanse and lingerie line. Would she consider reality television again? Well, what do you think! As long as it's drama-free! Drama-free reality television? That's an oxymoron if I've ever heard one!
