LOS ANGELES, CA – May 3, 2011 – Fans have watched VH1’s Basketball Wives take Miami by a storm. From the ladies’ show-stopping fashion to their drama and betrayal, Season 2 left the Basketball Wives audience wanting more and VH1 is delivering it with Season 3 of Basketball Wives, premiering Monday, May 30 at 8 p.m.*
The season finale of Basketball Wives left many fans shocked as they learned some of the ladies’ deepest secrets and saw the tension rise in the inner circle. Were the ladies able to move on from their drama since the reunion, or are the fires still burning? 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. With all the drama aside, the ladies still make room for some VIP fun in Season 3 of Basketball Wives, premiering Monday, May 30 at 8 p.m.
