Basketball Wives Meeka
Following last week’s season 3 premiere of Basketball Wives which pretty much showed newbie Meeka Claxton, you know, sticking her nose into everyone’s business, she is now defending herself.

In a new interview, Meeka, who describes herself as a self-made real estate entrepreneur, does what all the other reality stars before her have done which is to of course blame editing.

When asked what she thought of the season premiere, Meeka states, “I mean, I watched it. And this is what I signed up for–it’s not me, the way I was portrayed, but it was entertaining.” She also says that she feels VH1 is portraying her falsely. “I was very surprised. A lot with Royce; it was all cut out that I said how nice she was, how bubbly she was. So, it’s funny how it started so innocently.”

So had Meeka seen the show before signing up for it? “I watched a few episodes before. But I was always in and out of New York and Atlanta, so I didn’t see every episode,” answered Meeka before going on to add that she doesn’t consider any of the ladies her friends. “I wouldn’t consider any of them friends. But I’m still getting to know them. It’s been such a short amount of time. And I didn’t go in there looking for friends. Its only been about two months, though.”

In other Basketball Wives news, the show continues to prove to be a ratings hit for the VH1 network. Last week’s premiere did pretty well, with over 1.8 million viewers tuning in. That is a 36% increase from last season’s premiere episode. As we reported, it appears VH1 is planning to extend the series with a new franchise in Los Angeles.

And finally, a new episode airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c. Suzie’s return to the circle upsets Royce, and sparks fly when Tami takes Meeka to task for playing both sides. A preview clip is below -

The Basketball Wives are back this season, and oh boy, as the drama picks up right where they left off from the reunion show!

The episode begins with the mean girl clique Evelyn and Shaunie paying Jennifer a visit. After threatening to leave husband Eric for what seems like the past 2 decades, it seems Jennifer finally made good on her promise! Oh never mind, as Jennifer reveals it was Eric who actually kicked her out of the condo they shared by putting it up for sale.

Jennifer, who is one sneeze away from experiencing a wardrobe malfunction, reveals she is very happy to be living on her own. “I’m just like a new person right now,” says Jen and what better way to celebrate the new Jen than with a divorce party! But wait, has she even filed yet? While the ladies continue their convo, sh*t stirrer Shaunie decides to bring up Tami, and Evelyn reveals there’s still a lot of bad blood. That tends to happen when you sleep with someone’s husband and then call them a “non muthaf*ckin’ factor.” Royce is brought up as well and as expected, they have yet to make up.

And speaking of Royce, who is now sporting a lighter mane, she is now single again after breaking up with what’s his face because they “didn’t mesh.” Firecracker Royce also reveals she hasn’t seen Evelyn in a minute but she is more than ready to box if they ever cross paths, or was it self defense? Oh well, whatever the case, we can expect a WWE match at some point!

The Basketball Wives officially return tonight with the premiere of their third season!

The new season began filming almost immediately following the season 2 reunion show so the drama is still very fresh with all the ladies. Tami Roman is still reeling from finding out Evelyn Lozada slept with her ex-husband, plus you know, that whole being called a “non muthaf*cking factor” thingy too.

A newly single Jennifer tries to find her way, a newly out of the circle Royce mends her friendships with Suzie and Tami, while Shaunie tries to stay out of the drama. New castmember Meeka Claxton also makes her debut tonight and wastes no time in getting right into the thick of things.

In an interview with NicoleBitchie, Shaunie O’Neal talks whether Gloria Govan is returning, slams Royce and takes a not so subtle dig at Meeka by pretty much saying she was desperate to get on the show. Excerpts are below -

Shaunie On Royce – “Royce is back. But truthfully I don’t really deal with her this season. After her behavior at the reunion show, I realized she wasn’t someone I wanted to give my time to… I think the rest of the girls and I have realized that Royce is the type of woman that constantly has to have some sort of drama going on, so we’ve come to expect it. She’s involved in some drama now, with Jen over the leaking of Royce’s pictures. So I try not to deal with her.”

Shaunie On Meeka’s Persistence In Joining The Show – “Meeka was very persistent. She reached out to us regularly, emailing her credentials, pictures, really letting us know why she belonged on the show.”[...]Well she’s already found some drama. I can’t give too much away but let’s just say, she had to learn the hard way.”

When asked whether Gloria will be returning this season, Shaunie replies, “Gloria is actually going to be apart of another show I’m doing.” As you all know, Gloria is currently a Lakers wife-in-waiting living in Los Angeles, which makes us wonder if a Basketball Wives Los Angeles spinoff is in the works.

The new season premieres tonight on VH1 at 8/7c. You can click here to watch the season 3 trailer!

They’re baaaack! Following their dramatic and highly rated second season, Basketball Wives returns to the VH1 network on May, 30 at 8/7c.

And judging from the newly released trailer posted below, the ladies pick right where they left off from the dramatic season 2 finale and reunion show. How dramatic? Let’s just say Evelyn and Royce get into a dramatic fist fight! There is also a new housewife in the mix this season as Meeka Claxton (pictured far right above) joins the cast. Meeka, co-owner of the Allure Realty Group, is married to former NBA player Speedy Claxton.

So what can we expect from Season 3? Well Shaunie O’Neal settles back into Miami determined to be drama free or leave the ladies alone while Evelyn Lozada makes the transition from a basketball wife to a football wife with fiancé Chad Ochocinco. The cameras will catch Jennier Williams finally leaving her husband and navigating a new lifestyle as a single lady.

With Royce Reed’s new larger than life attitude, viewers will see if there is enough room for involvement with Jen, Evelyn and Shaunie or if her attitude will take the spotlight. Left hurt and betrayed, Tami Roman works on rebuilding her trust for the ladies and moving on from the past.

Famous Food – The network confirmed what we reported weeks ago, which is that reality famewhores Danielle Staub, Heidi Montag, and Jake Pavelka will indeed star together on a new reality show. The concept of the reality show is that the famewhores are given an opportunity to create a flourishing and fully-operating restaurant. Over the course of eight weeks, the colorful crew of “celebrities” will roll up their sleeves and work together to launch their own restaurant, aptly named, “Famous Food.” Joining the above three famewhores will be DJ Paul and Juicy “J” (from rap group Three 6 Mafia), Ashley Dupre (famed ex-prostitute) and Vincent Pastore (“The Sopranos”). The show debuts Sunday, July 10 at 10/9c.

Tough Love – Also returning this summer is Tough Love: Miami. Steve Ward and his mother Joann Ward are back to help single women make a splash in the Miami dating pool. Steve will work with a group of eight single, attractive women, all composed of classic female archetypes including the “too much too soon” romantic, the “gold digger” and the late 30′s “work obsessed.” They will be living together in a house for 10 weeks and given a chance to learn Dating 101.”VH1 Tough Love: Miami” premieres Sunday, July 10 at 9/8c.

Celebrity Rehab – Season 5 of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Pinsky and Michaele Salahi debuts Wednesday, June 29 at 10/9c.

Also returning, The T.O. Show season 3 will premiere Monday, August 22 at 10:30/9:30c and La La’s Full Court Life will debut the same night at 10/9c.
