Tonight is the long awaited reunion show of VH1’s new hit – Basketball Wives. The one hour reunion is set to air at 10/9c.
As we reported last week, a major fight broke out when alleged groupie Sandra Lopez was brought on to the stage, much to the dismay of cast member Suzie Ketcham. Sources reveal “Suzie got really p—– off and just got up and left, but not soon after, she came back with a huge bucket of water and threw it at Sandra.”
According to an insider, things took an uglier turn when “Sandra tried to run away, but in the process, she slipped in the water and fell.” Cops were called and Suzie ended up being arrested.
While the ladies sit down to rehash the events of the season, cast member Gloria Govan will not be in attendance, as she skipped the reunion taping.. Gloria has voiced her disdain for the show, and has said she will not be back for season two. As we previously reported, VH1 has renewed Basketball Wives for a second season.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE REUNION SHOW AND THIS SEASON OF BASKETBALL WIVES?
“VH1 announced today that its latest hit series Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business, Basketball Wives and What Chilli Wants have all been picked up for second seasons.”
“VH1 viewers connected strongly with these three new series this year, and we’re so happy that we can continue to share these real-life stories from the worlds of music and celebrity. Will Chilli really ever let down her guard in her quest for love? How well will Brandy and Ray J step up in their family business? And how will the Basketball Wives move forward in their complicated lives? We’re looking forward to answering those questions in their next cycles,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Production, VH1.”
The finales of Basketball Wives and What Chilli Wants airs tonight at 10PM and 10:30PM, respectively. Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business will finale on Sunday, June 27 at 9PM. A reunion is also being filmed for the Basketball Wives, and that will air Sunday, June 20 at 10PM.
Thoughts on the shows: Basketball Wives – has been pretty interesting to watch. It rivals the drama of the Bravo Housewives’ franchises. Similar to Bravo Housewives, the show will also be expanding and Football Wives is set to debut sometime this year. The only bad thing about this show is there are really no likable characters. Evelyn and Jennifer are both drama queens who need to get off their holier than thou attitudes. Evelyn spent most of the season picking on Royce only to have nude photos of her leaked online. I can’t decide if I like Suzie or find her annoying, Royce is okay, and I guess I actually like Gloria and her FU attitude.
What Chilli Wants – I was a bit surprised to see Chilli is somewhat of a prima donna. I thought she was over the top mean to some of her dates at times. TionnaSmalls is also a bit annoying to watch, and borderline obnoxious at times. While Chilli can be a handful at times, Tionna needs to learn how to be professional at all times and learn how to deal with personalities like Chilli if she wants to do this professionally. It’s however nice to see Chilli finally connect with Farmer D and Bill. Wonder who she will pick.
Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business – When I first heard of this show, I was certain it was going to be a boring show, but I’ve been quite surprised at how interesting it has been. I think the reason the show has been great is because the family was very open and honest about their lives. Letting the viewers in on the real drama going on in the family has made for great TV.
