  “Basketball Wives” Season 5 – Premieres Monday, August 19 @10PM ET/PT

VH1’s window into the world of women romantically linked to professional basketball players returns for a fifth season. This time around, “Basketball Wives” double dribbles both excitement and surprises, beginning with Evelyn Lozada’s first attempts at extinguishing the media flames surrounding the altercation with her now ex-husband. Back this season with their own passions and ambitions are Tami Roman, Suzie Ketcham and Shaunie O’Neal. New to the scene this season is Evelyn’s friend Tasha Marbury whose scandalous marriage of seventeen years to Stephon Marbury of the Beijing Ducks has the rest of the girls whispering. Season five also witnesses the return of a notorious wife from seasons past, a confrontation with a woman whose alleged relationship with a player puts one of the wives in an uncomfortable position, and another unforgettable turmoil-filled girls’ trip to London. “Basketball Wives” Season five is set to premiere August 19 at 10PM ET/PT.


Shed Media is producing the series.  Executive producing for Shed Media are Nick Emmerson, Alex Demyanenko and Sean Rankine. Shaunie O’Neal is an executive producer.  Executive producing for VH1 are Jill Holmes and Tom Huffman.
