“Basketball Wives LA” Is Coming Back With Some MAJOR Casting Changes!
Basketball Wives LA is coming back for another dramatic season and we can’t wait! The fifth season of the show finished airing back in October and we have been having withdrawals from the show ever since. Even though news about the new season was quiet for quite some time, the tea has finally been spilled and it’s JUICY!
As of right now, here is the information we have about the season 6 cast:
Returning cast members include Jackie Christie, Shaunie O’Neal, Tami Roman, & Malaysia Pargo.
It’s rumored that Brandi Maxiell, Angel Love, & Angel Brinks were let go due to budget cuts. As far as DJ Duffey is concerned, it’s rumored that the producers and Duffey mutually decided to part ways after a disastrous ending to season five.Even though we love Duffey, we completely understand why she would want to leave after her physical altercation with Tami Roman. Shaunie O’Neal and Tami Roman have publicly stated and confirmed that Duffey would not be returning for another season.
Basketball Wives OG Evelyn Lozada is also making her long-awaited return to the franchise that made her famous. Check out her official announcement that she made on The Real below!
Besides the veteran’s returning, the show has also added some new ladies to the group and a few of them are linked to some very well known men in the league.
First, we have Aja Metoyer who is the ex-girlfriend of Dwayne Wade will be joining the hit franchise. Metoyer is also the Mother to one of Wade’s children that they had together while he was on a break from Gabrielle Union.
Aja’s sister Melissa Metoyer is also rumored to be joining the show in some capacity.
Next, we have Nick Young’s ex-girlfriend and baby mama Keonna Green. Even though her pregnancy was a surprise, it caused a lot of drama and ended an engagement between Young and Iggy Azalea.
Last, we have Bonnie-Jill Laflin who is actually the first and only female NBA scout according to her Instagram. She’s also a model, television personality, and sportscaster. We are not sure if she’s romantically linked to any current or former NBA players, but we still think she will be a great fit for the show. Below is a photo of Bonnie from the recent promo shoot.
We are still unsure if this is the complete cast and what everyone’s roles will be, but we will keep you updated on any additional news that we hear. The new season is rumored to be premiering this summer.
