You’ve seen the supertrailer for Basketball Wives LA and you know what kind of drama to expect from the upcoming season of the new show, but who are these women, really? Allow us to introduce the new cast, starting with Jackie Christie and Imani Showalter.
For anyone who’s grown skeptical of the “Wives” part of this show’s title, Jackie is the one to shoot that criticism down, she’s been married to retired player Doug Christie for sixteen years and has a wedding ceremony every year on their anniversary. Imani was in a long-term relationship with NBA player Stephen Jackson and is now raising their children on her own and looking for love. Get to know these two opinionated basketball wives in the clip above and on the show, which premieres Monday, August 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
