It’s an all-new season of Basketball Wives L.A., and the ladies are pretty much in the same position as they were when we left them last season. There are old rifts, there are those who want to mend the rifts, and there are new rifts just waiting to happen. Sounds like your average Basketball Wives season. So let’s catch up with the ladies (and meet a new one!) and see what they’ve been up to. Read more…
“Me and Jimmy have a special bond,” Chrissy Lampkin says in the supertrailer for Chrissy And Mr. Jones. “It’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced before.” But soon enough, we’re all going to experience it when their show premieres on Monday, September 24 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. In the clip above, meet all the new characters that fill out Jim and Chrissy’s inner circle, and all the old characters we already love (Mama Jones is baaa-aaack!), and catch a glimpse at all the drama, wedding planning, baby planning, and friendship friction in their lives. Will their path end with an aisle to walk down, or someone hitting the road? We all have to wait and see.
Draya Michele and Malaysia Pargo told us last week that one of the biggest changes on this season of Basketball Wives L.A. is how amazing and fit everyone looks, and how they’ve upped their game when it comes to style, and they weren’t kidding. This weekend on the runway of New York Fashion Week, the ladies all modeled for Jackie Christie‘s latest collection, and not only are the clothes super cute, but the women look seriously amazing. We have a gallery of this season’s cast — Draya, Malaysia, Gloria, Laura, and Brooke — rocking Jackie’s clothes, and we have some addition shots of the rest of Jackie’s line, too. Let us know what you think of the models and the clothes in the comments!
Every so often, we’re reminded that most of the women and men on our VH1 reality shows are parents, but that’s especially obvious when it comes to checking their Twitter pages, which are usually filled with proud pics of their adorable children. We combed through some of of stars’ accounts recently to see what kind of photos they’ve been posting, and it was hard not to feel a twinge of stomach-flipping baby lust when we saw how cute all of these kids are. From Yandy Smith and Kimbella‘s newborns to Malaysia Pargo‘s family portrait to Nicole Murphy‘s trip to Universal Studios with her daughter, it’s clear we have some devoted parents and some stunning kids in the VH1 family. Take a peek at some of our favorite shots in the cutest gallery we’ve ever assembled.
Draya Michele and Malaysia Pargo have been on a whirlwind press tour this week to discuss the new season of Basketball Wives L.A., and their visit to The Breakfast Club today brought out more than just the usual dirt, as is usually the case on the talk show. So what new and interesting things did we learn about them today? Let’s share:
1. Draya admitted that she considered not returning to the show. “I was definitely on the fence about coming back,” she says. “Just because I felt like the first time around, everybody else got to tell their own stories about me. everyone had their turn to say what they thought about Draya. And I feel like the world sort of believed some of the stuff. The only reason I came back is because now it’s my turn to tell my own story.”
2. Why won’t we see Malaysia’s husband on the show? Even though she says he supports her decision to be on the series “110%,” Malaysia says her hubby is “a different individual and his life path is going somewhere else, so we don’t wanna mix the paths.”
3. Draya is not a third wheel in Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran‘s relationship. “To clear everything up, Chris and Karrueche are in a relationship…I don’t play any part in their relationship, there are no threesomes. Her and I are friends more than him and I are friends.” And since Draya and Chris dated for nine months and remained friends, she also says that Karrueche is not threatened at all by that. “I don’t think I was the ex she needed to be concerned about,” Draya says.

Basketball Wives L.A. is set to premiere in just three days (Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT!) and Jackie Christie hung out on the set of Big Morning Buzz Live today to talk about the new season. As always, she maintains that she’s never the s— -starter, she’s only a “s— -finisher” and the girls “know exactly what that means.” Sounds like the same Jackie we know and love! Interestingly enough, she explains that she hasn’t seen every episode (and definitely hasn’t watched the reunion episodes) because they’ll make her want to get into it with the other ladies. And in another surprise moment, when asked who’s her favorite among the rest of the cast she responds…Well, you’ll just have to watch to see how she responds. But it’s definitely not Malaysia, that’s for sure. Watch to the end to see what we mean.
Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones‘ relationship was a fixture on Love And Hip Hop and we couldn’t get enough of them. We rooted for them to get engaged (both times), we loved their strength, and their family dynamic with Jim’s mother, Mama Jones, were one of the most entertaining parts of the series. And now, they have their very own spinoff where we’ll get to see all of that without any other distraction or drama in the mix. VH1 is thrilled that Chrissy & Mr. Jones will debut on September 24 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT (immediately following T.I. And Tiny: the Family Hustle) and will feature their road toward marriage and all the bumps they hit along the way. And in addition to Mama Jones playing an important role on the new series, Chrissy’s BFF Emily Bustamante will also appear on the show — but will she and Fab follow Chrissy and Jim down the aisle? Tune in to Chrissy & Mr. Jones when it airs September 24th to find out, and in the meantime, check out some production stills below.

We’ll spare you from having to scroll through our gallery of VH1 stars in attendance at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards just to see who was hanging out with Pauly Shore because — surprise! — it was the entire cast of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta! Random, we know. But we definitely think you should scroll through the photos to check out some close-ups of everyone else that was there from your favorite shows. Erica, Scrappy, and the rest of the ATL crew were there, as were Mayte and Drea from Hollywood Exes, Dr. Drew, and a couple Single Ladies folks, too. Check them all out in their red carpet best below.
