(New York, NY) March 27, 2017 – VH1 today announced “Basketball Wives” will return for season six on Monday, April 17th at 9PM ET/PT. This season, several new faces will join series veterans Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman, Jackie Christie, Malaysia Pargo and Shaunie O’Neal.
Evelyn Lozada is reunited with longtime friend Shaunie O’Neal, but she quickly discovers that Tami Roman and Jackie Christie are not on the welcoming committee. With the drama swirling, Malaysia Pargo returns to Los Angeles wondering if there will be anything left of the friendships she once knew. Brandi Maxiell also makes an unexpected return to check if her “services are (still) no longer needed.”
After being labeled the “side chick” in a very publicized celebrity relationship feud, newcomer Keonna Green is ready to move past the tabloid drama. Between buzzy relationship scandals with some of basketball’s biggest stars and their sisterhood, the Metoyer Sisters (Aja, Cristen and Melissa) bring their own baggage this season. Also joining the cast is Bonnie-Jill Laflin, the league’s first female scout, who may struggle with running into her famous friends’ exes.
VH1 will also air a Basketball Wives Pre-season Special entitled “Basketball Wives Showdown: Evelyn vs. Tami” on Monday, April 10th at 11PM ET/PT highlighting fan favorite moments from the OG’s past seasons.
