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’NealEvelyn 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.”

Those FAKE Basketball Wives THREATEN To QUIT The Show If They Don’t Get More Money

Basketball Wives upcoming fifth season has already gone into production and the ladies threatened to quit the show if VH1 doesn’t give them more money. Below is how TMZ is reporting the story:

The “Basketball Wives” are drawing a clear line in the sand for the network execs — either up their salaries or they’ll walk … this according to sources connected with the show.  We’re told filming began last week for the 5th season … but Shaunie O’NealEvelyn LozadaTami Roman and Suzie Ketcham do NOT have locked contracts. According to our sources, the “Wives” are in the process of renegotiating their contracts and they all want major pay raises, claiming the show does quite well for the network.  Our sources say VH1 is refusing to pony up more cash. We’re told before filming started, execs made it clear that salary increases would not happen and if any cast member had a problem with that … they could be replaced. Despite the deadlock, we’re told production schedules were sent out and the girls began filming in hopes a deal would be worked out shortly. So far, a deal has not been reached and neither side is budging … so we’re told the “Wives” are planning to walk out next week if VH1 can’t agree to the terms.”

Do you think these ladies deserve more money?

There Is Always More Than One Side To A Story: Evelyn Lozada Speaks On Her Beef With Jennifer

Expect a whole bunch of drama on the upcoming season of Basketball Wives Miami (BBWM). As usual, the scripted reality show will be filled with a lot of jealousy and hate. In the past few months, Jennifer Williams & Evelyn Lozada been dissin each other in the press. Last week, I reported that Evelyn and Jennifer are no longer friends because Evelyn is jealous that Jennifer is friends with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes. But according to Evelyn, that couldn’t be farther from the truth – a fact she took to her twitter account and said, “I am f*cking pissed! I am beyond livid right now! You know what Necole, I don’t really talk to a lot to people because it’s so stressful filming. So by the time it’s done, I’m done with it, but this mothef*cker right here [Jennifer Williams] is doing interviews. She’s agreed to do every interview under the God dayum sun to remain relevant. So if she wants to do an interview, we can do an interview.” Lozada is mad and below are some excerpts from a recent interview she did:

Well first off, it looks as though Sister 2 Sister pulled down the article, and I’m not sure if she reached out to them 
I’m going to tell you why…Honestly I don’t keep up on everything, but my Twitter followers surely let me know what the f*ck is going on, it’s not like I’m searching for stuff. So, my PR girl Danika sends me the interview and says, “Well, apparently she thinks that you’re jealous of her friendship with Nene [Leakes] and Mashonda.” I go read the link, and I’m like, “Is this chick really bugging out?” We’re maybe two months into filming–You know what the real issue is by now but she’s trying to make sh*t up and act like I have an issue with Nene and Mashonda. So I sent Nene a text message, “I’m sorry to involve you in this bullsh*t, but I just want to make it very clear that I don’t have an issue with you. My issue with Jennifer has nothing to do with you or Mashonda.” I’ve met Mashonda. She’s cool, and I don’t have a problem with them or them hanging out [with Jennifer].

So you and Nene spoke?

Nene and I spoke on the phone yesterday. She was like, “I am so happy that you called me because I have had discussions with Jennifer, and I told her I know that Evelyn doesn’t have a problem with me. Why would she? I know it wasn’t an issue with me and I told her that.”
I don’t care who Jennifer hangs out with. I get it! You’re single. You’re having a good time. We’re in two different spaces right now, and frankly I don’t want to be in the club every night because my life is different.

So there’s no truth to the story at all?

I’m never that chick. Hang out with who you want to hang out with. I get it. You wanna be with your man, be with your man. I’ll never hate on none of that but she’s always lying. She’s lying and fronting like that’s what it is, and that’s not what it is. She knows exactly what the issue is because she did something that went public. That pissed me off.” I’m done. I don’t talk to her. I don’t comment about anything pertaining to her, her dating life, what she does –It’s not my business.
