*“Basketball Wives” the L.A. edition is getting closer to the reveal and some photos were released this week.
The new cast includes Gloria Govan (fiancée of Laker’s Matt Barnes), Laura Govan (sister to Gloria Govan), Kimsha Artest (ex-wife to Ron Artest), Imani Showalter (ex-fiancée to Stephen Jackson), Malaysia Pargo (wife to Jannero Pargo), Jackie Christie (wife of Doug Christie) and Draya Michele (model and actress).
Although many are excited about the new show, Shaunie O’Neal, the brain behind the show’s creation, has been very blunt about her dislike of the new cast.
“There’s a little bit of trash kind of sprinkled into that cast that I’m totally against. I was really very hands-off with that cast,” she said.
The show premieres August 29 on VH1.
