Jennifer Williams and those other chicks on VH1‘s ‘Basketball Wives’ are out and Tasha Marbury is in. Tasha is an REAL wife, not like those other so-called wives on the show. She is married to former NBA player Stephon Marbury who currently plays for a league in China. If you guys are not familiar with Tasha, she is good friends with rapper Fat Joe’s wife Lorena Cartagena and designer Tia Eisly (pictured below). It is being reported that sources close to the production confirmed that Tasha is in final talks to join the show.
According to TMZ, “We’re told producers approached Tasha for two main reasons … she’s actually a basketball wife (she and Stephon married in 2002) … and secondly she’s already friends with some of the other “wives.” Sources tell us, Tasha was previously asked to do season 1 of “BB Wives”, except Stephon nixed the idea — but now he lives in China part time playing for the Beijing Ducks … and changed his tune. We’re also told producers are still looking to fill a couple more spots. One of which might be Evelyn Lozada‘s — considering she has yet to make decision about returning to the show.”
