Welp, just when you thought the ratchet reality shows were going away one by one, they still exist and are lurking about lol. Come inside to see the new promo pics and more info on the return of Vh1’s Basketball Wives Season 5 geesh!
Well if you are interested in seeing these chics in their new season of Basketball Wives then you are in for a treat! They seem to have got rid of a few old castmembers and I can’t remember who they were lol. Oh, I know now, it was Jennifer Williams, and Royce Reed. The newest castmember is Tasha Marbury that was married to NBA baller Stephon Marbury. They had major drama in their marriage with his many jump-offs. They soon divorced with lawsuits filed, restraining orders and more ratchetness. Chile, I can’t! I never heard of him, but I don’t follow any type of sports so forgive me. Anywoo, the new season starts August 19th on VH1, will you be tuned in?
Exec Producer Shaunie O’Neal told The Grio in a recent interview:
“You’ll see a lot of growth. Just filming this season I felt the growth. Sometimes I’d look at the ladies and be like ‘I’m so proud of you. You handled that so well.’ This is like a mirror. We’ve been able to look at ourselves for four seasons, and now going into the fifth, it’s like ‘I gotta do better.’”
“I’m a mom of two girls. And my daughters see me… I never want to show them anything that I wouldn’t want them to represent as a black woman. I can’t control what everyone else does, I can’t control anybody else’s behavior, but I can control mine.”
She also hinted that this season would be extremely emotional, especially with Evelyn Lozada going through the aftermath of her domestic violence incident with Chad Johnson.
It was rough. It’s a whole lot of crying. I tease her now when we talk, like, ‘I stopped counting how many times you cried this season, and how many times you made me almost cry.’ A lot of it was us hearing some things for the first time. She let’s go a lot on the show, because it was so new when we were filming. It’s very emotional… it’s extremely emotional.
