Will There Be A Basketball Wives Movie?

Shaunie O’Neal, ever the business woman, is looking to further expand the Basketball Wives brand with a movie about the life of an NBA wife. Variety reports that O’Neal has partnered with producer Tracey Edmonds produce a feature film that “centers around a young woman who follows her boyfriend to Miami after he gets drafted into the NBA. Thrust into the world of professional sports, she meets the other players’ wives and learns from their trials and tribulations.” Sounds familiar! But this story, unlike Basketball Wives, will be a fictional version of what we’ve gotten used to seeing on the show.

Edmonds, who produced Jumping The Broom, has also enlisted Broom screenwriter Elizabeth Hunter to write the film. Edmonds tweeted about the project “The film introduces new characters w rich story lines and although juicy and action packed, it’ll empower!” What do you think, are you Basketball Wives fans excited for the film??

Steve And JoAnn Ward Discuss Tough Love And Steve’s “Special” Girl On Late Night With Jimmy Fallon


Jimmy Fallon doesn’t necessarily have a reputation for asking the really tough, journalistic questions on Late Night, but he certainly made Steve Ward sweat during last night’s show. (Literally.) Jimmy poked around to find out about Steve’s love life, a topic that anyone who watches Tough Love has wondered about, and Steve and his mom JoAnn admitted that there’s a “special girl” in his life that he’s been seeing. For five years! Unfortunately, when Jimmy asked Steve to propose to her on-air, the room got a little stuffy for Steve. Not so easy being in the hot seat now, is it, Steve?
Tough Love: New Orleans, Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT right here on VH1.

Royce Reed Recaps Basketball Wives Episode 11: Too Many People And Too Many Opinions Got In The Way Of Us Just Being Happy


It’s time once again to welcome Royce Reed back to the blog so she can tell it like it is. For the past two seasons of Basketball Wives, Royce has recapped every episode, all the highs and lows, and given us her completely honest and unfiltered opinion. We’re thrilled to have her back for season four.
OK HERE WE GO!!! AGAIN, THIS IS MY BLOG AND I SAY WHAT I WANT WHEN I WANT AND HOW I WANT. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT DON’T READ IT.

Most of last night’s episode lead up to the conversation I had with my father. It also concerned my past relationships. So while most of the girls were either having mammograms, talking about a lawsuit, or planning on how to accidentally on purpose get Jenn and Evelyn together while on their drama retreat while claiming they won’t…I was teaching Tami‘s daughters a few dance steps, walking on the beach and learning my lines in a park with Suzie who for some reason thinks Tahitians eat people. Aside from that, I was pretty much in tears.

Who Is Keisha Greene? Here’s A Single Ladies Refresher For You


It’s been several months since we checked in with Single LadiesKeisha Greene, played by LisaRaye McCoy. Keisha is many things, among them a savvy poker player, a style goddess, a (former) video vixen, and a woman who has been looking for love, finally found it, and had it taken away from her by the FBI. Over the first season of the series, we followed the relationship between Malcolm Franks (played by D.B. Woodside) and Keisha closely to try and figure whether or not it was legit since both of them seemed like they were constantly playing each other. We finally thought we had them all figured out and their love was real…until Malcolm disappeared. Will Malcolm and Keisha’s love reignite when the second season premieres on May 28? We’re not sure, but to catch up on their story, check out our clip above.
