Yesterday, I posted a few group promo shots of Basketball Wives Season 5 cast members. As part of the marketing campaign, VH1 releases individual promo shots featuring Shaunie O’Neal, Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman, Suzie Ketcham and newcomer Tasha Marbury. This season, the reality show has been cut down to just five women. Catch all the entertainment, drama and gossip starting August 19th on VH1. In the meantime, check out the ladies all glammed-up in their promo photos.
In a recent interview with The Grio, Shaunie said that the show is about growth this season and will tell a more uplifting narrative than before.
“You’ll see a lot of growth. Just filming this season I felt the growth,” O’Neal said . “Sometimes I’d look at the ladies and be like ‘I’m so proud of you. You handled that so well.’ This is like a mirror. We’ve been able to look at ourselves for four seasons, and now going into the fifth, it’s like ‘I gotta do better.’”
“I’m a mom of two girls. And my daughters see me… I never want to show them anything that I wouldn’t want them to represent as a black woman. I can’t control what everyone else does, I can’t control anybody else’s behavior, but I can control mine.”
