Yesterday we confirmed that filming on Basketball Wives‘ fifth season is already under way, and now Shaunie O’Neal and Evelyn Lozada have divulged a few more tidbits about what to expect this season on the show. Though no official casting has been confirmed, Shaunie mentioned that there will be a new face on the show, someone “that’s really good friends with Evelyn [Lozada] and myself.” She also explained the off-camera relationships she has with the rest of the cast, saying that aside from Evelyn, she only sees the other ladies during filming. “Evelyn and I keep in contact and we do stuff together throughout the year, but when it comes to everybody else, it’s kinda like we just get together when it’s time to do a show,” she says.
And Evelyn also confirmed that despite the controversial drama of last season, she just hopes for a more calm situation for season five. “We never go into a season saying, ‘Hey, well this is what we’re going to do. I know it’s been—especially last season was a little crazy, but we kinda just go with the flow. We’re hoping it’s smooth rolling next season,” she explains. Time will tell, they’ve only shot the show for a few days, and we’re excited to see how this season plays out.
