Official photos of the full L.A. cast were revealed this week.
The new cast includes Gloria Govan (fiancée of L.A.’s Matt Barnes), Laura Govan (sister to Gloria Govan), Kimsha Artest (wife to Ron Artest), Imani Showalter (ex-fiancée to Stephen Jackson), Malaysia Pargo (wife to Jannero Pargo), Jackie Christie (wife of Doug Christie) and Draya Michele (model and actress).
Shaunie O’Neal, the mastermind behind the “Basketball Wives” franchise, has been very vocal about her dislike of the L.A. cast. “There’s a little bit of trash kind of sprinkled into that cast that I’m totally against. I was really very hands-off with that cast,” she said.
Could they really be any trashier than blow-throwing Tami? Hmm… guess we’ll have to wait and see if these ladies are all that bad when the season premiere airs August 29th on VH1.
