There are a certain people who like to watch VH1 and I’m not going to fault them for doing so. Last year, a reality show was approved by VH1 called “Basketball Wives” which was going to follow the lives of NBA players wives.
The only issue with that is not a single cast member is currently married to an NBA player unless you count being engaged to Matt Barnes.
We get more from SportsbyBrooks:
VH1’s Basketball Wives reality show debuts on Sunday. Following the lives of actual wives of NBA players sounds like a colossal bore, but I’m happy to report that this show will be anything but that. Of the six cast members, exactly zero are married to current NBA players.
Instead we get Jennifer Williams, who is married to former NBA journeyman Eric Williams. Shaunie O’Neal, who recently divorced Shaq. Suzie Ketcham, who is divorced from Michael Olowokandi. Gloria Govan, who is engaged to Matt Barnes and is the sister of Gilbert Arenas baby mama Laura Govan. And baby mamas Royce Reed (Dwight Howard) and Evelyn Lozada (Antoine Walker).
The show on first glance sounds like it would be right up VH1’s alley and to be honest, I might check out an episode or two.
To note, Shaunie O’Neal (Shaq’s-Ex) is the show’s executive producer and it would not surprise me if she drops some Shaq-related disses in the show. However, I think Shaq’s second rap album did enough of that already.
So get your TiVo’s ready, the premiere is this Sunday at 10pm et/pt.
