‘Basketball Wives’ Season 8 Preview
Basketball Wives is yet another reality show about rich people living in LA, but the outlandish fights and drama-filled parties these wives undertake are bar none some of the most entertaining VH1 (and otherwise) has to offer. With a cast that includes Shaunie O’Neal, Tami Roman, Evelyn Lozada, Jackie Christie, Malaysia Pargo, and Jennifer Williams, there’s always a full-court press on these ladies’ social lives.
Trailers for the season have teased unexpected twists and turns, new career endeavors, and strained relationships like never before. The 16-episode season will obviously welcome its series veterans back into the fold, but a fresh newcomer to the group will also be around to shake things up. According to VH1, here’s what the wives have in store for the upcoming season.

Tami is busier than ever, but unresolved confrontations could change the dynamic of her relationships with her daughters and friends forever. Meanwhile, Jackie is experiencing empty nest syndrome as she prepares for her son to go off to college.
Malaysia is struggling to find a solution to her current family drama and an unsettling rumor surrounding her personal life. Ready for a fresh start, Jennifer wants to rekindle friendships but her past might interfere with making amends. Kristen is faced with navigating an unexpected family secret that could cause everything she has built to collapse.
CeCe and Byron are ecstatic about their future as husband and wife, but strained family ties may get in the way of the couple’s happily ever after.
After 10 years as an athlete, Ogom “OG” enters retirement and decides to pivot from playing football to coaching.
Newcomer Feby Torres, is tired of being associated with her famous ex and is determined to make a new name for herself, even if that means making enemies.
