Now it’s time to get down and deal with the issues they have been avoiding. In the season finale, Shaunie invites the girls to get away from the Miami drama and visit her in Los Angeles for a little get-together.

Find out how all the drama unfolds on the Basketball Wives season finale, premiering Sunday, May 30 at 10PM.

Basketball Wives is currently casting a few new ladies for its second season, which will begin shooting this summer in Miami again.

In the finale of What Chilli Wants, the season-long search for Chilli’s perfect man has left many rejected scrubs in its wake. Now, after some breakthrough sessions that have revealed previous heartbreak, relationship expert Tionna Smalls pushes Chilli to put down her infamous “list” and open her heart to the two hot prospects she’s interested in – Bill and Farmer D. Funny guy Bill scores points and melts Chilli’s defenses with a romantic getaway to the country side complete with horseback rides and their own cottage. Farmer D’s soft charm, home cooking and sentimental note also warms Chilli’s heart. After a search that first seemed unproductive, Chilli faces a choice between two great contenders. Will one of these men be a part of her story as she rolls into the second season? Tune in to find out on the season finale of What Chilli Wants Sunday, May 30 at 10:30 PM on VH1.

Superstar siblings Brandy and Ray J Norwood are famous for their incredible vocal talent on the stage and screen, but they wouldn’t be anywhere without the support and guidance of their parents – entertainment manager and mom, Sonja and talented musical father, Willie Norwood. In Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business, viewers get a first hand glimpse into the lives of the Norwood family personally and professionally. Their company, Rn’B Productions, features an impressive roster of musical artists including Brandy, Ray J and their father Willie, who also serves as the company’s vocal coach. But with Sonja ready to step down as CEO, Brandy and Ray J have to fill her shoes while trying to take the family business to the next level. In this series, both Brandy and Ray J try to expand their careers. Brandy steps back into the music scene and teams up with famous producer, Timbaland, for a new album. Ray J steps out of his notorious bad boy image and collaborates with Rodney Jerkins and other popular R&B heavyweights. Sonja, the matriarch of the family, fights frustration trying to keep her family on track, while passing the business reins to Brandy and Ray. And, father, Willie continues to coach his famous children on life and music. Despite their success and celebrity status, the Norwoods are a typical American family who stick together. However, in the season finale, the Norwoods take a break from work for a family reunion in Mississippi. And unfortunately, Sonja and Willie’s relationship may have reached the breaking point. See if the family and the business survive on the finale of Brandy And Ray J: A Family Business premiering on Sunday, June 27 at 9PM.

    Is anyone actually watching this crap, or is VH1 just afraid to admit they fu@ked up when they changed the schedule?

  3. Rach says:

    Way to ruin any sense of anticipation for the WCW finale, VH1. No point in getting all worked up about who Chilli might choose if we already know she didn’t find anyone worth sticking with.

    Thank goodness no one went and pulled this kind of mistake during RoL, or I might have had to shank someone. Everyone knows these relationships never work out, but you gotta at least preserve the illusion!

  4. Tev says:

    Basketball Wives has been renewed? Seriously?

    The worst VH1 show in years is getting a second season?

    I’m flabbergasted.

  5. Paula says:

    Yay to all three! I know people think at least two of these shows don’t need to be renewed (I won’t say which two), but if its bringing in ratings for VH1, then more power to them. I know I’ll be watching at least two of them when they return. I still believe there should be another season of I Love Money – come on VH1!!!!

  6. AvidWatcher says:

    I’m glad that Brandy & Ray J is getting a second season. It’s my favorite show right now.

    brandy and ray j i love the show if they didn’t have ray j he is so stupid and inmature i cant stand him he acts like his `#!$$~_*~~*(+^*_ dnt stick please you making yourself look bad…………..

    CHILI’S episodes are okay i dont see thae point of finding love on tv is pointless and that list burn it please,i like her show but i could be interested……

    nowww BASKETBALL WIVES please if you continue to do other seasons please find actual wives not scaliwags,or some oreo or some CLASSY ladies that act crazy like a maniac no wonder none of you have your man. well except jen and gloria

  14. johanna says:

    These are the three WORST shows on VH1 and I have no idea how they all got renewed. YOu got a show about women !&!~%$+`&)`&`#^%) ing about nothing new in Miami, you have a brother and sister duo that nobody cares about and you have Chili wanting to meet a man but being impossible about it. The shows can only go so far. Brandy and Ray J…nobody cares at all until he allowed some of his dating show drama to get in there, but we find his family hard to watch. They are B list talent that got an A spot from Vh1′s promotion

  15. shaknbak480 says:

    Well great thanks Vh1 for that. Its not like I was looking forward to see who Chili picked on the season finale but it doesn’t matter anyways since we know there is a season 2 already

  16. Sherry says:

    1. Basketball Wives (BBW), 1st Royce and Gloria move on, 2nd Gloria has no control over someone else’s actions but her own. What her sister did or not should not hinder Gloria’s relationship with the other women and they need to stop confronting her and if they can’t then move on. In their life styles, believe me there will be plenty of “DRAMA” to tape for TV, if not, it’s going to get old! As more relationship realty shows pop up, I can only hope women watching will look in the mirror and say “wait a minute, do we truly act like that over men,” and especially men who have no respect for themselves and anyone else in their lives.
    2. Chilli, she shouldn’t let up on her standards for anyone, being equally yoked is better. Her coach is missing the mark.
    3. Brandy and Ray J, it’s time to mature they need to stop and listen to ther Manager/Mother. The show as is will be cancelled, however; if they adjust and be more professional it could be a winner and an example for others.

  17. A KANSAS GIRL says:

    I’ve watched all 3 of the shows and I’m confused by some. To start “Basketball Wives”… really who are they? If it wasn’t for the men that were/are in their lives they would’nt be know or have anything. The only one I care for is Royce. Atleast she is a wife/ex-wife. Shaunie O’neal Shaq’s ex thats all she wrote. She will always be known as that, SHAQ’S EX.
    “What Chilli Wants” love her show but hate the list.
    “Family Business” two questions… Brandy, where is your daughter? How can you work on your mother-daughter relationship when aparently you don’t have one with your own child. Please explain, I’m sure there are many other people that want to know this. Sonja, you treat Willie like crap… I’m a newly wed myself, and I’d never treat my husband like that. Let him be the man, ya’ll have YEARS together. Sonja, you should quit the family business and focus on being a mother/grandmother/WIFE… THANKS FOR LETTING ME VOICE MY OPINION NO DISRESPECT INTENDED. GOD BLESS

  18. Susan Alexander says:

    VH1 – it seems as if you scraped the bottom of the barrel! The Baseketball Wives show is a complete joke and I cannot believe that it was renewed for a second season!! I thought the show was going to evolve around the lives of mature women who are “basketball wives”. Instead, it is about immature, backstabbing women who are friends with two women who ARE basketball wives. Gloria seems to be the only woman who has some sense AND some sense of decency. The leader of the “high school” pack is Evelyn. She has very immature ways and needs to work on the personal issues that she clearly has. Physically she is a beautiful woman; but her imature ways make her ugly. In Season 2, I hope you will replace Eveyln, Suzie, and Jennifer with real “basketball wives” who will enhance the show!

  19. Spontaneous says:

    How can I get in touch with Bill from Chilli’s show? He’s perfect and I’m single…

  20. Robin Horton says:

    Please Shaunie do something else. Creating this show may have been a good idea in the beginning but where are the wives? These women act like crazed teenagers. Drama queens who can’t control their anger. They need to grow up and deal with their issues. Oh but why? They aren’t married. Just cancel this one period.

    By the way I love..The basketball wives show ….Im so glad that another season is coming out ..yayyy..by the way I luv the whole cast of the show…great job .. but a little confused about laura why she so fake and in denial about whats going on around her..she thinks she is much better than all the rest because most of them are Ex-wives and she is a fiance .. so what things happen most women who are divorced is not the man who divorced them its the women ..Laura you want to paint this picture like your mis two goody …these wives..

    VH1- You should cast Jackie Christie as a NBA wife, I and I know millions of people would love to see this wife’s day to day. Jackie Christie is no joke. Matter of Fact, ‘m going to start a facebook fan page to add Jackie Christie to the cast! Toodles

  25. Olivv says:

    The first good decision by vh1 in a looooooong time. Good job. but bring back all the old celebreality stars (ie. new york, megan, brandi c, etc.)

  26. Nichole says:

    Can somebody please explain to me why this show is called basketball wives? Only one of these ‘women’ is barely married. It should be called Baby Mamas. But really, being a baby mama is no reason to get your own show. I feel sorry for their children. Wow VH1 seriously???? This show needs to be cancelled! It is DISGUSTING and FAKE and UNNECESSARY at best.

  27. Nichole says:

    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME WHY THIS SHOW IS CALLED BASKETBALL WIVES WHEN ONLY ONE PERSON IS ACTUALLY MARRIED. SHOULD BE CALLED BABY MAMA DRAMA. OR HOT GHETTO MESS IN A DRESS! BUT SERIOUSLY, IT SHOULD BE CANCELLED. WHAT A HORRIBLE HORRIBLE SHOW.

  28. Steve says:

    Aww, for f*** sake!!

    Nobody want another year of Basketball wives. The only real person on there is Royce. Gloria’s a pathetic stupid #!%*. How can she badmouth Royce when she got skelletons in her own closet?! Evelyn’s is such a bloody fool to e-mail topless photos of herself to Vince Davis knowing that his missus Vanessa would eventually find out. It’s also become obvious that Shaunie isn’t really woman enough to confront Gloria’s sister herself yet she send Jennifer the rest to speak with her instead. The program’s a waste of everyone’s effing time

  29. marriedIam;-) says:

    I’m glad all of the shows are coming back!! I really hope Gloria doesn’t come back because there is no need for her to be there. First, she is not a wife and second she acts as though her @_*`!@~*~@%@`+$& don’t stink. Thirdly, she is out of line for saying to Royce that all she will be never be a basketball wife. Gloria, dear you aren’t even one- you shacking up, my dear!! You’re engaged which is probably as close as it will get for you as far as being married. Get your @_*`!@~*~@%@`+$& together before you can predict someone else’s life- which you know nothing about…

    ~fan of basketball wives~

    Nobody want another year of Basketball wives. The only real person on there is Royce. Gloria’s a pathetic braindead #!%*. How can she badmouth Royce when she got skelletons in her own closet?! Evelyn’s is such a bloody fool to e-mail topless photos of herself to Ricky Davis knowing that his missus Vanessa would eventually find out. It’s also become obvious that Shaunie isn’t really woman enough to confront Gloria’s sister herself yet she send Jennifer the rest to speak with her instead. The program’s a waste of everyone’s effing time

  31. Debra says:

    Please do not renew what Chili wants for a second season the show was boring. The pool of men she had to choose from was lest then the best. The show was superficial, something about Bill I did not like.

  32. trunezz says:

    Ray J is a wanna-be somebody who does anything for a buck..a limelight prostitute.And basketball wives is crazy Shawnie is getting paid to commentate thats it!Chilli show was ok that coach girl gets on my nerves with her sensitive self…I want THE GAME to come back why wont any network make that happen?

  33. calandra says:

    what gloria sister does has nothing to do with her.she is right for defending her sister. if her and oneals wife were truly friends they could get past this. as fr eric williams wife girl don’t let yr friends decide the fate of yr marriage. i don’t understand it it’s basketball wives nt basketball girlfriends or ex. that’s why its better to keep your personal lives separate from yr friendship. because at the end of the day no matter what advice is given that’s a decision we will have to make.

  34. Jessica says:

    Basketball Wives is ok, just ok. Chilli and Brandy and Ray J are soooo boring. Go back to the old format, “of love” shows and I Love Money. Yes, it’s smut, but people love stuff like that. Not boring people with lack-luster lives!!!

  35. Tawny says:

    Basketball wives need to be taken off the air! because seriously, what are they doing really?

  36. Veronica says:

    I like Brandy and Ray J, but Ray J needs to grow up. Brandy looks so fake, her teeth, eyelashes, lace front wig and she is so skinny. Why does she look like that? COme on. I think Basketball wives need to get actual wives, it would make better sense. Chili is ok, but she if she chose one of those guys, they should show how the relationship is progressing. I like the fact that for the most part she shows are kind of classy, except for some of Ray J’s friends/knock out crew and those grown women on Basketball wives fighting and throwing drinks in peoples faces. I see why that guy can’t get a record deal, who would invest in a idiot like that?

  37. Nicole says:

    yaaay im glad basketball wives is back for a 2nd season i like it i know alot of ppl hatin on the show but to me its good n all i have to say is dont watch it then watch something else but stop bashing it cause obviously u do watch it enough to know whats going on so lmao!! but yeah so keep the drama comin and yeah switch some of the girls cause gloria gets on my nerves.

  38. daqueenb69 says:

    i would love to rayj and brandy second season the show isnt bad its a good show and i would love to meet them soon in cali so holla

  39. ASHLEY says:

    SINCE BRANDY & RAY J HAS BEEN RENEWED, GIVE THEM 30 MINUTES MAX. THEY’RE BORING. GIVE BASKETBALL WIVES THEIR HOUR! BASKETBALL WIVES NEED TO ADD A WOMAN THAT HAS SLEPT WITH MATT TO THE CAST! GLORIA THINKS SHE’S SO PERFECT AND SOMEBODY NEEDS TO CALL HER OUT!!

  40. Gina says:

    I know everybody is hating on “Basketball Wives” and I do like it but it is true it would be nice to actually see people who have the ring – I don’t understand why this was called Basketball Wives when nobody is a wife but Jennifer and that is holding on by a single thread….but I still found it entertaining to see exactly what these girls go through

    I enjoyed Chilli’s show and it was interesting to watch – we know she chose Bill but I guess the second season will be how things are with Bill

    Ray J and Brandy I don’t mind watching – Ray J does act a bit stupid sometimes he really needs to grow up

  41. Donna says:

    Why Lord ? Why ? These are probably the worst shows on the air. I’d rather see Behind the Music and Legends. Remember when Vh1 actually had programs about musicians ?

  42. cris says:

    omg so does that mean chilli didnt find love though guys were great for her she seriously need to let her guard down but its a great show though:)

  43. Jackie says:

    So glad Brandy is coming back to VH1. It’s the only time I really look at VH1. I use to go to vh1 to see what shows she would appear on. Now she’s back, GREAT!!!!

  44. Janice says:

    Now let me say fun is fun! Basketball Wives are crazies, the ladies aren’t even current basketball players wivies. Most of them aren’t even wives at all; however, I love watching them act crazy! Brandy and Ray J are cool. I love Brandy she’s a beautiful sweet lady. I feel for her having to deal with her mother and her ego driven young silly brother.CHILLI AGAIN!!!! I THINK NOT!!! Chilli is so full of herself, she wants Lloyd, what ever his name isand he do not want her, or maybe theirs something to do with his conatract.I do not know, what I do know is I will not do another Chill!!!!! LOL and crying at the same time!!!! NO MORE CHILLI PLEASE…

  45. VRT says:

    I really enjoyed all three of these shows. I am glad they are coming back for another season. For those who despise and think that they shouldn’t come back there are so many other channels that one can watch. All these reality shows are fictional I think and provide a sense of drama and anticipation of what will happen next.

  46. Baby Girl says:

    I really hope that Basketball Wives cast “REAL” Basketball Wives for the second season; I believe there was one. The Ex-fiances, Groupies, and Baby Mamas played out QUICKLY. If you have CLASS you don’t have to tell your audience constantly, we’ll see it…never saw it in season one’s cast members. Some of the shows were reminiscent to a Jerry Springer Show [all of the fighting and fowl language]; totally classless. Please, do better!!!

  47. gdenni says:

    I think Chilli doesn’t know what she wants because when you go over her so called “list”, Mayweather doesn’t fit the bill. This guy clearly isn’t ready to settle and she’s still harping on him. She’s just waisting everyone’s time with this BS. She wants Mayweather. problem is he already has tons of kids and is not about fall in with her. I like her, but she’s looking dumb. Maybe she’s doing this to get off the D list.

  48. ladonna227 says:

    Chill, chill girl … It seems that you want men. That don’t want you.. You love them bad boys… like Floyd and he was just leading you On… I hope you wake up and smell the coffee Now! You look like a FOOL..Running after Floyd on the Show. And he is getting Married…He don’t look like Nothing ..And you said, You want more Kids. Have you looked at Floyd, You must be is crazy to want to bring a child in the world with Floyd… So it must have been about the MONEY… I can’t believe that you’re having problem finding a Man..This is sad Chill! You want to much.. and You aren’t All of that..
