We've been told the best things in life come in threes. Or is it the worst? Considering we all didn't die Saturday, were going to go with best. Let's see: Miami's dream team, little pigs and let's not forget sheets to the wind. And now, seasons of Basketball Wives. Yep, you read that right. Your favorite guilty pleasure is back for it's third (and we hope not final) season this Monday at 8 p.m.
Like you, we aren't sure why we love this show. We can't
really relate to the ladies and are insanely jealous of their NBA-sized alimony checks
that show up every month. Still, we love it and lucky for us
it will be back next Monday on VH1 at 8 p.m. But until then, we can only dream of what's to come and hope it includes the following. Oh and there is a new lady in town!
The New Bitch on the Block: Meeka Claxton
From her picture, we can already assume she is going to be a great addition to the group. She doesn't look too friendly and has a little bit of crazy in her eye--just how we like them. And in the trailer from VH1, Tami Roman called her a "trouble maker," so you can only imagine what this girl has up her sleeve if that is what Tami thinks. Here's what we know about her so far: She is an actual basketball wife, married to retired player and current scout, Speedy Claxton. But she has money of her own: she is a self-made real estate entrepreneur that specializes in high-end transactions for some of the larger names in sports and A-list crowds. A girl that doesn't depend on a man? Yes, please.
Season Three's Ladies
Here's our wish list for the new season:
A Lot of Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada
Were not sure why but these two fascinate us. Maybe it's because they are both so media hungry, and we can only imagine the two of them together on a reality show (they both have done it before). And apparently, they want to have children. Great! Watch out future teachers!
Evelyn Lozada vs. Tami Roman, Part 2
Season two was great and all, but we aren't going to lie and deny that the best part of the entire season was the finale dinner where Tami did her best to rip Evelyn to shreds. We loved it and we want more of the same. Read the recap of their fight here.
More Violence in General
Okay, we know it's round three and not just between Evelyn and Tami. We got a sneak peek of the season, and one scene that has us all hot and bothered is a dinner between the ladies that ends with Evleyn throwing a drink on Royce Reed, Royce returning the favor, and the two of them eventually being separated by security. Good shit. Check out our Q&A with Reed.
Jennifer Williams Sluts it Up
Now that she is single -- and we'll even see her file for a divorce at the court house and everything -- we would love to see quiet little Jennifer just wild out and get lots and lots of lovers. Can none of them have Eric's crazy huge teeth, please? We're sick of looking at those. Read our interview with Williams here.
If you've ever seen Suzie Ketcham you know what were talking about; the girl is tall glass of water. But she is back for season three, after leaving for less drama/being kicked out. And it looks like her friendship with Royce is going to make the other ladies upset. Yeah, what hell else is new?
