VH1 gave fans a behind the scenes sneak Peak at The Basketball Wives.
VH1 featured a live stream of the shoot with interviews with each of the cast members. One thing is for sure, there are a lot of girls to keep up with this season. All of last season’s cast is returning (except for Meeka Claxton) and they’ve added two new girls; Kesha Nichols and Kenya Bell.
The newest cast member Kesha revealed that Basketball Wives has been courting her for a few seasons now (after her ex-fiance Richard Jefferson pretty much left her at the alter). She and Royce are both dancers and will be getting along great. Which is good that Joyce may finally have a friend on the show. They are both dancers and they pretty much spent down time of the shoot taking photos of and with each other. Keesh also revealed that she won’t be bringing a lot of drama as she has to be emotionally invested into a person to reach her breaking point.
My girl Evelyn (my favorite) did not miss an opportunity to floss her shoe game. She came in a pair of Christian Louboutin Crystal Daffodil pumps that retail at $6,500 before changing into the white garb that the cast was draped in. Shaunie and Evelyn spent their downtime of the shoot sitting next to each other and tweeting. Jen, who has fallen out of favor with Eve spent most the shoot with a sour face. To the point that I couldn’t find any pretty photos of her from the shoot. Uncomfortable!!
The director of the show, revealed that Jen is always pretty much reserved and it takes a little to get her to open up in scenes. He also revealed that Meeka Claxton became a non mthfkn factor after last season because she was too aggressive and tried too hard and that didn’t fly well with the other girls.
When asked if he saw a difference in Gloria in LA vs Miami, he disclosed that he believed Gloria was different in LA because she lost weight, got some boobs…didn’t really go “too too Hollywood”, but she definitely found herself in LA. It should be interesting to see how the new Gloria interacts with the other cast members who were never lost.
