VH1 has finally announced the cast of their Basketball Wives show.
Here they are:
Jennifer Williams-wife of Eric William
Evelyn Lozada-ex-fiancÃ© of Antoine Walker
Mesha O’Neal-wife of Jermaine O’Neal
Royce Reed, Faith Rain-Udonis Haslem’s girlfriend
Shaunie O’Neal-wife of Shaquille O’Neal
From the press release:
VH1 has teamed up with the wives and girlfriends of some of the NBA’s most elite players to give the viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the glamorous life of a professional basketball player’s wife in VH1′s original series, Basketball Wives. Production is set to begin on the series in December 2009. The eight-episode 30-minute series is set to premiere on March 15, 2010.
This series is about the insider life of the wives, girlfriends and a few ex-wives of some of the biggest ballers in the game. These ladies live the life. They drive the best cars, live in the biggest mansions, wear designer clothes and jewelry and only travel first class. But living the high life is not all glamour. In order to protect it, they have to deal with the jealousies and dramas of living in — and staying in — the inner circle. They must also keep the groupies at bay while their husbands and boyfriends are traveling on the road for over six months of the year playing ball all-the-while wondering if their spouses are being faithful to them.
This could be hit that VH1 has been waiting for…I’m glad they’ve gotten back in the docu world, and out of the competition shows.
