#BBWLA SHAKE-UP! Five 'WIVES' AXED! #EvelynLozada RETURNS!? [details]
It goes without saying that 'Basketball Wives' season 5 had its UPS and DOWNS. The ratings depicted this as well. Some weeks some HIGHS and then some lows. Season 5 had so low spots as compared to season before. SO VH1 has SHAKEN things up! Five of the KEY STARS from season 5 will not be RETURNING for season 6 and an OG from the FRANCHISE is set to RETURN! Evelyn Lozada is rumored to be RETURNING as 5 girls get the AXE! Get the DETAILS after the JUMP!!!
According to theJasmineBrand.com., Malaysia Pargo, Brandi Maxiell, Angel Brinks, Angel Love and DJ Duffey will not return for the next season as official cast members. However, Shaunie O'Neal, Tami Roman and Jackie Christie will all remain.
"The network wanted to shake things up, so they didn't renew contracts for Malaysia, Brandi, DJ Duffey, Angel Brinks and Angel Love," a source revealed.
While the ladies won't be included in the opening credits anymore, they will make 'appearances on the show.
"None of them will be full time, but the network is giving them the opportunity to make a few cameos," the source continued. "We'll have to see how filming plays out."
It is also rumored that original Basketball Wife Evelyn Lozada will return to the franchise in the next season. I guess her reality show on OWN didn't pan out.
I am not SURE how this is going to work. Tami, Evelyn and Shaunie back together? Why not just bring back 'Basketball Wives Miami'. I mean these 2 together is going to be like watching 'The Golden Girls'. The NEW BLOOD that they recruit are going to have to BE STRONG because Shaunie and her girls SIPPING chamomile tea and looking down on the NEW GIRLS is not going to carry a WHOLE season. I actually LIKED Malaysia and Brandi. NOW THE REST, especially 'DJ' Duffey are free to go. We'll see how this GAMBLE pays off....
