GangStarr Girl / May 4, 2011

Basketball Wives will return this month and the drama will continue. The ladies that people either love, or love to hate will take Miami by a storm for season three but with some new changes and additions.

Via a Vh1 press release: Season 3 begins with Shaunie O’Neal settling back into Miami determined to be drama free. Shaunie balances a new shoe line, her love life, family outings and being a shoulder to lean on for the other ladies. Can she handle the pressure? Evelyn makes the transition from a basketball wife to a football wife with fiancé Chad Ochocinco. The cameras will catch Jennifer leaving Eric behind and navigating a new lifestyle as a single lady. With Royce’s new larger-than-life attitude, viewers will see if there is enough room for involvement with Jen, Evelyn and Shaunie or if her attitude will take the spotlight. Left hurt and betrayed, Tami works on rebuilding her trust for the ladies and moving on from the past. But before she is able to forget the past, Tami must face an unexpected challenge from Evelyn who is given the unusual opportunity to profit from last season’s blowout in unexpected ways.

Viewers will see the return of Suzie, who will attempt to reconcile with the ladies who sent her packing last season. But will her friendship with Royce lead to an ultimate disaster and her final exile by the ladies?  Miami will also be sent spinning as a new face is added to the familiar mix, Meeka Claxton, married to retired point guard Speedy Claxton and the co-owner of the Allure Realty Group. With a hands-on approach to life and a never-give-up attitude, Meeka will give her new fellow basketball wives a run for their money.

So we already know that Shaunie’s “drama free” mantra probably went right out the window as soon as the cameras started rolling.

Basketball Wives season 3 premieres Monday, May 30 at 8pm.
