If you’ve seen the epic, drama-filled, cat-and-bull-fighting supertrailer, you’ve only gotten a taste of what’s in store for the next season of Basketball Wives, hitting VH1 Sunday, December 12 at 8/7c. The press release below should provide another taste and be sure to check out the gallery of official press shots of the ladies (including newcomers Tami Roman, Juli Richmond and Kimberli Russell):
The beautiful and vivacious ladies of VH1’s Basketball Wives will return for Season 2 on Sunday, December 12th, 2010 at 8PM ET/PT. Last season, audiences were hooked by these women not only because of their relationships with some of the country’s greatest athletes, but also because of their own successes. The women of Basketball Wives Season 2 are more than wives and girlfriends of rich, famous, and talented men; they are smart, independent women working to make their dreams a reality. But being the leading lady in a basketball player’s life isn’t all glam. It also comes fighting, favorites, and fallout from airing of dirty laundry.
The 10 episodes are expanding to an hour and will take you on a trip to the steamy city of Miami to get caught up with Shaunie O’Neal, Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed, Evelyn Lozada, Suzie Ketcham and Gloria Govan of Season 1 and meet Basketball Wives newcomers Tami Roman, Juli Richmond, Kimberli Russell, and Ashley Walker. Not only will viewers be able to catch up with what the Season One ladies have been doing, but we will also get an exclusive look at the lives of the new ladies in town!
Following the ladies as they juggle their relationships, careers, children and friendships can be pretty hard work but when secrets from the past are revealed, tempers erupt and the circle of friendship could be forever ruined. Public brawls at charity events, new romances, a Vegas secret that could potentially leave one of the ladies out of the ring for good, a possible end to a high-profile marriage, and the return of an ex make this chapter a jaw-dropping, emotional, can’t-miss season.
Watch as these women find a balance between supporting a family and realizing their career ambitions while staying loyal to their circle of friends. They prove to be much more than just pretty faces; they are real women that must cope with all the stresses and drama of raising a family, sustaining a healthy relationship, and making their own mark.
Full episodes and extra scenes from Basketball Wives will be available on VH1.com and through VH1 Mobile each week following the show’s on-air premiere.
