Basketball Wives returns to VH1 on May 30th. Even though we’ve had a glimpse at some of the upcoming drama, (Bosh suing his daughter’s mother, Allison Mathis and Tami and the new cast member beefing) I cannot wait for Season 3 to hit the airwaves.
VH1 has released a few details on what to expect from the third season of my guilty pleasure:
In Season 3, fasten your seatbelts and get ready as we catch up with the ladies (Shaunie, Evelyn, Jennifer, Suzie, Royce, and Tami) to see if they were able to put the catfights and two-faced behavior behind them and recover from the shocking finale. Season 3 also introduces a new wife to the mix, Meeka Claxton.
Basketball Wives Season 3 begins with Shaunie O’Neal settling back into Miami determined to be drama-free. Shaunie balances a new shoe line, her love life, family outings and being a shoulder to lean on for the other ladies. Can she handle the pressure? Evelyn makes the transition from a basketball wife to a football wife with fiancé Chad Ochocinco. The cameras will catch Jennifer leaving Eric behind and navigating a new lifestyle as a single lady. With Royce’s new larger-than-life attitude, viewers will see if there is enough room for involvement with Jen, Evelyn and Shaunie or if her attitude will take the spotlight. Left hurt and betrayed, Tami works on rebuilding her trust for the ladies and moving on from the past. But before she is able to forget the past, Tami must face an unexpected challenge from Evelyn who is given the unusual opportunity to profit from last season’s blowout in unexpected ways.
As the ladies try and move on and settle their differences in Season 3 of Basketball Wives, viewers will see the return of Suzie, who will attempt to reconcile with the ladies who sent her packing last season. But will her friendship with Royce lead to an ultimate disaster and her final exile by the ladies? Miami will also be sent spinning as a new face is added to the familiar mix, Meeka Claxton, married to retired point guard Speedy Claxton. Meeka Claxton is co-owner of the Allure Realty Group and knows what it takes to be a successful woman. With a hands-on approach to life and a never-give-up attitude, Meeka will give her new fellow basketball wives a run for their money.
Hmmm, no mention of Allison. So that means either her storyline sucks and Chris had nothing to worry about or they’re taking the cautious approach. Check a few official photos of Meka Claxton and how do we feel about Shaunie and her Boo, Marlon’s picture? His particular brand of sexy just doesn’t excite me but she seems happy.
