Just when we thought the most drama-filled reality show on TV couldn’t get any juicier, Basketball Wives L.A. is adding two new cast members and having a fan favorite return. Keonna Green, 26, is coming aboard after having her second baby by L.A. Lakers star Nick Young, 31 in Oct. Her surprise pregnancy was what ended up causing his broken engagement to Iggy Azalea, 26. We can’t wait to see if the show brings up the cheating scandal that resulted in a the birth of their daughter into Keonna’s storyline.
Also coming aboard is Aja Metoyer, 30, who gave birth to Chicago Bulls star Dwyane Wade‘s three-year-old son Xavier Zechariah in 2013. She hooked up with the 34-year-old when he was “on a break” from dating now-wife Gabrielle Union, 44. We bet she’s got some major dirt to share and we can’t wait to see what kind of tea she has to spill as she joins the cast, that will include Shaunie O’Neal, 44 Tami Roman, 46, and Jackie Christie.
Fan favorite Evelyn Lozada is also returning for season six, and even though she’s moved on from dating hoops stars and is now happily engaged to L.A. Dodgers star Carl Crawford, she knows she’s got plenty to bring to the table. The 40-year-old has been guest-hosting on The Real, and dropped the big news on the show Dec. 1.
“I know. I know what everyone’s thinking. Everyone’s like is she going crazy. This is her going backwards, but I’ve had several conversations with Shaunie about this and we just really want to change the direction of the show,” she told the audience, referring to Shaquille O’Neal‘s ex-wife Shaunie, who is also the show’s executive producer. “I feel like a lot of the arguments and a lot of the storylines have, you know, been done before.” She added that she’s not coming back for extra cash, saying, “Yeah, not a factor. I feel like I should be getting a check every time somebody says ‘it’s not a factor.’ But, I mean we really want to add substance and depth to the show.” With the new additions, this season should be the best one yet!
