When it was first reported that Vanessa Bryant planned to divorce her husband, L.A. Lakers star Kobe Bryant, anyone with a passing familiarity of the Basketball Wives franchise started speculating about whether or not she should join the cast. Trust us, we heard the rumors, the thought crossed our minds, and we weren’t immune to the gossip. But today it was brought up again when TMZ reported that Vanessa was “the Holy Grail” for Basketball Wives producers, and they reported that producers were pitching the show to her and “would instantly make her a LEAD on the LA edition of the show.”
Well of course that got us wondering, so we checked with our sources at the network for the official word, and that word is: “Production has not reached out to Vanessa at this time.” So for today, you can put this news to rest.
