The other day Sundy Carter confirmed she got the boot from “Basketball Wives LA,” but new reports suggest that Shaunie O’Neal and Tami Roman have been added to the cast.

Reality Tea writes:

We’ve got the inside scoop on the upcoming season of Basketball Wives: LA! Along with some new faces, some of the franchise’s veterans will be returning. Joining them will also be Shaunie O’Neal (it’s been a long time since I’ve written about ol’ Nostrils!) and Tami Roman who previously made their home in Miami on the original Basketball Wives. That’s a recipe for drama if I’ve ever heard!

According to our source, Shaunie, who is also a producer of the shows, and her buddy Tami will be joining the Los Angeles cast in a capacity similar to the “friends” who appear on Bravo’s Housewives. Tami has recently been spotted filming with BBWLA staples Malaysia Pargo and Jackie Christie (is it weird that I’ve missed Wacky Jackie? Yes, yes it is).

As we previously reported, our insider confirms that the new faces we will be introduced to will belong to Mehgan James, Patrice Curry, and Angel Brinks. Tami attended the launch of Malaysia’s new bedding line along with Brandi Maxiell, Mehgan, and Patrice. The party will be featured in an episode on the new season. Days later, Tami, Angel, and Jackie were filmed having drinks together.


Evelyn revealed on Twitter she was asked to join BBWLA but declined.


  1. Child these b-tches are too old for this sh-t. Shaunie and Tami’s old a-ses will be in their 60s still trying to make this dumb a-s show happen.

    1. LOL. Yeah it’s time for VH1 to let both BBW go. Even Evelyn has moved on. She used the show to get what she always wanted. A rich a-s man. She never has to do reality show again. Smh.

      1. Evelyn hit the damn lottery. I wouldn’t come back either if my child’s father was a professional baseball player.

  2. Like adding Shaunie and Tami are really going to make the show interesting. I don’t know why VH1 refuses to pull the plug on this show.

  3. It’s kind of like VH1 just refuses to end this show. And I don’t understand why because all the L&HH shows are doing way better ratings wise. They don’t even need BBW anymore. But whatever. I won’t lie and say I’m not going to watch.
