A new team of basketball wives will soon be holding court in Los Angeles.
Basketball Wives LA, premiering Aug. 29 as the latest installment of the popular VH1 reality series, will follow five women as they navigate the ups and downs of their relationships with NBA superstars – and each other.
The cast includes Kimsha Artest, wife of Los Angeles Laker Ron Artest; Jackie Christie, wife of Doug Christie, former player for the Los Angeles Clippers; and Imani Showalter, ex-fiancée of Charlotte Bobcats' Stephen Jackson.
Fans of the original series, which takes place in Miami, will recognize Gloria Govan, fiancée of Laker Matt Barnes. Gloria bitterly feuded with other cast members during season one, but this time her sister Laura Govan will be there for back up.
If its predecessor is any indication, Basketball Wives LA is bound to bring drama.
