The ladies of VH1 RealiTV Series, BASKEBAL WIVES, are ready to come back with Season 5!!!
The cast has been pared down to just five; EVELYN LOZADA, SHAUNIE O'NEAL, SUZIE KETCHAM, and TAMI ROMAN are the veterans, while TASHA MARBURY will be the lone Season 5 rookie.
SHAUNIE O'NEAL says that BASKETBALL WIVES: SEASON 5 will show a different side of the franchise.
“You’ll see a lot of growth. Just filming this season I felt the growth. 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.’”She also hinted that this season would be extremely emotional, especially with Evelyn Lozada going through the aftermath of her domestic violence incident with Chad Johnson.
“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.”
It was rough. It’s a whole lot of crying. I tease her now when we talk, like, ‘I stopped counting how many times you cried this season, and how many times you made me almost cry.’ A lot of it was us hearing some things for the first time. She let’s go a lot on the show, because it was so new when we were filming. It’s very emotional… it’s extremely emotional.Season 5 of BASKETBALL WIVES premieres AUGUST 19, 2013; on VH1.
