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.
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?
There’s no such thing as too many photo posts, in my ever so humble opinion! I love checking out what the stars are wearing, where they’re going, etc. Here we have another gallery from VH1’s 2012 Do Something Awards, held last night at Barker Hangar in Los Angeles.
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!
