VH1 has us pegged for sure. As the summer wears on and reruns abound, we can count on reality shows to provide us with some new material and much needed drama. Enter the ladies of Basketball Wives: LA. Who cares if you’re the wife of a basketball player? If you want to create tension with the series veterans, by all means, join in the shenanigans! Last night was the long awaited (by me, at least, but I know I can’t be the only one!) premiere of the latest season of BBW: LA, and it did not disappoint.
It’s been so long, I can’t keep up with which ladies hate the others, which ones threatened to never return but are still front and center, and why in the world Tami Roman decided to jump casts. I’m sure it won’t be too difficult to catch up to speed. The episode begins with Malaysia Pargo redecorating her home in the midst of her divorce from Jannero Pargo, and Brandi Maxiell stops in to check up on her friend. She’s ready to play matchmaker, but Malaysia wants some me time for a change. Malaysia explains that she couldn’t keep being disrespected by her husband, and he wasn’t willing to go to counsel. Brandi can relate, but she’s not willing to consider divorce…yet. Malaysia wants to change the subject, but she doesn’t want it re-routed to a conversation about Jackie Christie. She hasn’t forgiven Jackie for her behavior and insensitive comments last season, so it will be game on when the ladies are forced to interact.
Happy Thursday! We have an all new photo gallery of reality star sightings for you. Among the fauxlebrities photographed out and about this week: Joanna Krupa, Aviva Drescher, Kyle Richards and more!
Joanna Krupa has been spotted around Poland this past week, attending events and taking in the Playboy Car of the Year party. Back in Los Angeles, Christina Milian shot scenes for her reality show. And over in France, Kim Kardashian was a guest speaker at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

“Viewers have been privy to every part of the couple’s relationship over the years as they became parents, dealt with Mendeecees‘s incarceration, the challenges of their subsequent separation, and eventually, his conditional release,” shared VH1. “Now, VH1 invites fans to be present for the happiest day of Mendeecees and Yandy‘s lives as they join together in holy matrimony.“
Anyone remember Draya Michele and Malaysia Pargo‘s epic brawl with Sundy Carter on season 3 of Basketball Wives LA? This was before Draya got all like, ‘I’m too classy to remember how ratchet I was now that I’m dating a Dallas Cowboy.’ Well anyway, now that Sundy is no longer under contract with Vh1 she has filed a police report against her former co-star citing that Malaysia and Draya’s attack gave her permanent eye damage!
Sundy claims that during the incident, which occurred in 2013, Draya punched her, then Malaysia followed that up with a hit to her eye socket – and ever since her vision has been blurry and she needs glasses.
Thank goodness for sources with the inside scoop! Reality Tea is fortunate to have one when it comes to Basketball Wives: LA, and our contact has been spot on with all of the assessments of the upcoming season. I am excited to see how it all plays out, especially in light of the anticipated Miami crossover!
Our insider has been sharing tidbits with us about the show for a while now. Filming of the new season is drawing to a close, and our behind the scenes informant shares that we need to expect the unexpected. Not everyone from Miami about whom we’d previously speculated actually made the jump to BBWLA, and the fan favorites are at odds with their co-stars. That’s the kind of drama I like!
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!
