VH1 is slowly turning into the BET sidekick for reality shows. Fantasia having her own show is foolery, but VH1 is bringing you even more mess with the new reality series “Basketball Wives.“ The show gives a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of the wives and girlfriends of NBA players. The show is set to start production this month and set to premiere the first of eight episodes on March 15, 2010.
The cast for the VH1 series include: Jennifer Williams (wife of Eric Williams), Mesha O’Neal (wife of Miami Heat Jermaine O’Neal), Faith Rain (girlfriend of Miami Heat Udonis Haslem), Evelyn Lozada (ex-fiancee of retired Antoine Walker), and Shaunie O’Neal (wife, ex-wife, separated wife of Cleveland Cavaliers Shaquille O’Neal). Shaunie O’Neal also lends a hand in the executive production of the series.
It will be interesting to see how they pull this show off. Shaunie O’Neal is going through a separation/divorce? with Shaq as his cheating escapades are being revelead every week. Antoine Walker is in a heap of a financial situation as he owes close to $4 million to creditors and is being investigated for his gambling debt. Also, Eric Williams is hardly a NBA superstar, so it is unclear who did the casting for this show. With all these troubling factors, I hope they manage to portray just a litttle bit of positivity or knowledge on this show. Stay tuned with Status Media Global for official premiere dates and information on VH1’s “Basketball Wives.”
