Basketball Wives Season 5 Premiere Month REVEALED!

By  |  52 Comments

Okay, I know fans of the VH1 reality series Basketball Wives(or sometimes called Basketball Wives Miami due to its spin-off Basketball Wives: LA) have been anticipating the official announcement for the premiere date for the shows fifth season and recently, the exact month has been revealed! In a recent post on Reality Tea, a still shot of Basketball Wives cast member Evelyn Lozada tweeting a fan that the shows fifth season would air in August was shown and a lot of fans were mad and hoped that Lozada was lying, playing a practical joke, or misinformed. Unfortunately, it is true as cast member and executive producer Shaunie O’Neal recently tweeted a fan that the show will premiere in August. You can check out the still shot of the tweet below.

Honestly, it sucks that the show isn’t going to be airing until August BUT it will definitely be WORTH THE WAIT I’m sure. To recap you guys a little bit about season five of Basketball Wives, O’Neal made some changes to the cast. Original cast members Jennifer Williams and Royce Reed, as well as season four addition Kesha Nichols, were supposedly fired and the only new cast member assured(via AllAboutTRH) to be added to season five is Tasha Marbury. There are rumors that Hope Alexis and Brandi Garnett are new members of the cast as well but we’ll have to wait and see about that. Also, there have been numerous reports that season four addition Kenya Bell(who did not return for season four as a cast member) came to film one last time and ended up getting into a physical fight with original cast member Suzie Ketcham(which, reportedly, involved meatballs. LOL). Also, O’Neal and season two addition Tami Roman, who were friends before the second season of the show, had some problems during filming this season. Finally, due to the negative response that season four received for their physical and verbal fights, the returning cast members have talked up a storm that the upcoming season would be more positive but still had some drama ofcourse.

Are you mad that season five of Basketball Wives isn’t coming back until August?

    Really not intetested in BBW anymore. And especially since some the more decent women aten’t going to be there. Jenn was a genuine BBW.Evelyn, nor Royce, nor Suzy were true BBWs. And Ev and Tami were totally bullies. By now I’m done with people being pimped out and selling their souls just to get on TV. Moving on –all of you need to do the same.

    I’m probably going to check out season 5 episode 1, but I don’t hold much hope for it.

    Royce and Jennifer were the only two classy ladies on the show, they balanced out all the unnecessary craziness from Tammy and Evelyn. There is no interest in watching no-class women do nothing but bully and fight. It’s about that time this show was taken off the air.

      Wow no Royce or Jennifer. To bad you fired the wrong cast memebers. It should have been Tammi or Evelyn. Sorry Shanie that you have to change your cast. This show is only for entertainment. Why is everyone so hard on BBW. You should have a life of your own. Don’t try to be like BBW. I’m just saying.

        I completely agree that both Tammi and Evelyn should have been fired.

      Royce (CLASSY) did I miss that episode because I saw a woman who dated a different man each season and busts it wide open at pool parties….and Jennifer was boring as watching paint dry..those fake eyes and ugly attitude was appalling….there is NOT one woman on REALITY TV that is classy including the white shows so it is safe to say you will be tuning all reality shows out this season

        I would happy say that i agree with you 100% because neither Royce or Jennifer were classy. Jennifer was stuck up yes but classy not. I like the show and i look forward to seeing what happens. …

    I think the only reason.evelyn is coming back to bbw is because her and chad aren’t together anymore and she needs the money. I really think the show is played out and these grown women need to go sit down somewhere and take a class on how to be a lady!!! I mean come on all they do is gossip and fight all the time its really ridiculous, they are just as bad as the kardashians!! Come on my black women wake up!

    • Aliyah

      If that is the reason she coming back y u mad????

      • Sunset

        July 16, 2013 at 10:15 pm

        she not mad she will be tuning in just like the rest of these clowns….lol

      Don’t you think that Evelyn received a financial settlement from Chad? She wouldn’t have married Chad if there wasn’t an opportunity for her to get paid once the marriage was over.

    I cannot I understand the responses yall always have!!! Obviousily yall are the interested veiwers…responding here? What do u expect? Regular women b neing positive? Come on?!!? No one would watch that! We ALL watch for the drama! Then say grow up, stop the fighting. REALLY?! That makes no sense. If u wanna see regular women look around. I say ladies BRING IT. Keep the drama or lose me. Plz dont bore me. Keep it real!

      Thank you for your comment, Vanessa. Let’s see what happens since there should be some drama due to Tami saying that she and Shaunie have some words this season, as well as TMZ reporting that Kenya came back and had an altercation with Suzie.

      June 19, 2013 at 12:03 am

      Well that’s not why I started watching the show. I must admit I love a little drama just like the next person; however, I would expect that from Bad Girls Club, but not BBW. I started watching because I thought they would be taking trips, partying, showing their families, doing charities, etc…The cast of Housewives of ATL are predominately black and they argue, but no fights to date. I don’t want to be bored, but come on now all that bullying on people from grown women is ridiculous. Now when 2 people willingly go at it, that’s cool, but Tami and Evelyn act like children sometimes and Shaunie is an instigator.

      • Gail

        July 9, 2013 at 3:16 pm

        I couldn’t have said it better. Shaunie knows what was happening and she sat there and did nothing. Later, she tries to act like she’s was surprise. All she cared about were the rating. It wasn’t until she started getting bad press that she considered getting rid of people. No surprise that she got rid of the people who were causing the least amount of trouble. Tami should have been the first to go (in fact she shouldn’t have been casted at all); and (all I want is the money) Evelyn next.

    Ummmmm pause…Royce didn’t get fired, she quit…and ummm this show is now dead.

    • Philip Hernandez

      May 15, 2013 at 10:14 pm

      Thank you for your comment! It’s been a back and forth thing of whether Royce quit or she got fired since she says she quit then Evelyn says that she was told to not come back b/c she didnt bring enough drama and blah blah. Either way, the show is coming back for Season 5 in August and we’ll see how it goes! Thanks again for your comment!

      U said it. I don’t know why editors want to get the story wrong.

      • Philip Hernandez

        June 4, 2013 at 11:10 pm

        Thank you for your comment. I did not get the story wrong because if you read a previous post on BBW that I did on Black Leading Ladies, as well as other posts on various sites, it is still not CLEAR on whether Royce, Jen, or Kesha were fired or left on their own. Royce says she left on her own but then Evelyn says she didnt. Shaunie has made no official comment and neither has VH1 in an official statement(as far as I know). I guess we will find out the real truth soon but again, thank you for your comment.

    • Mz Lez

      June 19, 2013 at 12:06 am

      I was thinking the same thing. Royce said out her own mouth she wasn’t coming back. And regardless of whether or not Jen got fired or quit I’m glad she’s not coming back because she doesn’t need to surround herself with those “ladies”. Jen has to much class and money to be involved with something so childish. I hear Jen has a new boo too. I’m truly happy for my girl Jen(she was always my fav)!

    At the end of the day I only watched it a few times and was very disturbed at the ignorance displayed. But VH1 is only putting on for viewers what is seen in everyday life and making money off of it. I will probably watch the first showing and we will take it from there.

    I’m ready, been waiting all year for this show to come back!!!

    May 24, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    They did away with the ‘class’ (Jen, Royce)…..and kept the ‘TRASH’ (Tami, Evelyn, and Shaunie). I certainly will not be ever TUNING in to this show again! Matter-of-fact, I state emphatically that they will not return. BBW is over and done with.

    • SHEILA

    seriously jenn has to be in this show i adored her n still do im a jenn fan so def not a fan of season 5

    • Mz Lez

      June 19, 2013 at 12:09 am

      Right! Jen was the true BBW on the show until hating a** Evelyn took part in ruining her marriage and Jen and Royce were always classy. Jen don’t need them bitches. This will probably be the last season. And Tasha Marbury better hope she still has a husband after the show….lol

    I will not be watching the show if the two people I like isn’t coming back. This show is dead to me.

    If JEN isn’t there.. No ROYCE.. NO OCHO.. ? Its stupid then.. the NEW ones they added last year were STUPID.. idk I watched NONE of L.A… yeah wait til AUG cause as long as HIP-HOP ATL is on you won’t get ANY RATINGS.. oops I said it

  13. Deb

    June 17, 2013 at 9:36 pm

    So far it appears the votes are in. Jen was decisively the reason so many of us tuned in. I wonder did Evelyn bully Shaunie into firing Jen? I’m just saying. It would have been great to see what Jen and Evelyn might have done with their friendship now that Chads out of the picture.

  14. SHEILA

    June 18, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    I LOVE THE SHOW TAMMY, EVELYN, SHONNIE WE NEED TO SEE MORE OF YOU SUZIE STOP KISSING AZZ BE YOUR OWN BACK BONE OK AND LADIES DO YOUR THANG!!!!!!

  15. InhaleChanel

    June 24, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    It seems that everyone forgot about when Jen was friends with Evelyn. How she bullied Royce and Suzie, and how she had a hand in bullying Gloria. Did we forget that? Apparently so.

    June 24, 2013 at 6:14 pm

    Honostly this used to be my favorite show but there was too much drama last season and not enought positive things happening. And as far as the cast I liked royce and jenn because they brought more of a balance to the show. I guess we will see how it goes!

  17. Lisa

    June 24, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    For one Tami is not a bully she just keeps real anyone and everyone…n plus y do y’all watch tv if all y’all do I complain on this blogging sites that’s all y’all…shut up n get a life, family, or a job…stop complaining bout other ppl n what’s goes on with their lives.

  18. Kenzie

    June 24, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    Me personally I love to watch all of the ladies keep it one hundred and not take no mess from nobody. I felt when you are on these reality shows, the drama must exist. At the end of the day drama sells just as much as sex……. Evelyn is my favorite and I can’t forget about Shaunie and Tammi. As for Royce I do not like her she is a hater and a groupie. Jennifer is alright but really doesn’t matter it’s all about the top 3.

    If you just have theos 3 you do not have a show I do not like shaunie she kisses evelyn ass all the time. Why did u fired royce and jen because evelyn told u to do that. See ppl money can NOT make u have a back bone look at shaunie she is spineless

    I’m so glad that bbw is returning. I was about to go crazy. Is their any chance Jen might return?

  24. So you know..

    July 9, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    People need to understand that Shaunie has no:
    “creative control”
    although Shaunie is listed as “Ex. producer” she really isn’t. They pay to have her name there b/c Shaunie at one time was a “good face” for the show.
    As you notice, Shaunie is always claiming to not be responsible for this or that.

    I agree, and besudes tht anyone tht likes Jen must be uppidy also. Who like someone tht puts unfortunate people down. I been disliking Jen every since started talking abt the “ghetto&foodstamps”. And neither one applies to me, but I still don’t put myself above anyone.
