Just like many other reality shows, Basketballs Wives have had to find a way to film around the current pandemic This season is guaranteed to look a lot different and it’s not just because of Coronavirus.
Shaunie O’Neal is returning for the ninth season along with Evelyn Lozada, Jackie Christie, Malaysia Pargo, Jennifer Williams, Kristen Scott. Ogum Chijindu, Feby Torres, and new faces that include, as rumored, Lamar Odom’s ex Liza Morales.
The ladies took proper precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by quarantining together which if you watched the last season — doesn’t sound like a very smart idea.
Nonetheless, some of the ladies want to hash out their issues and move on as there are serious things happening in the world such as the pandemic and Black Lives Matter movement re-awakening.
The season plotline exclusively reported by Variety reads: ‘O’Neal relocates to Houston, Texas to be closer to her children; Lozada getting ready to move into a new home, and Pargo is ready to teach her own children about police brutality and how to deal with officers of the law. Discussions of systemic racism and Black Lives Matter will be a part of the season in other ways, as well including through Scott’s involvement with the movement. Romantic relationships and the drama that comes with them will be front and center, as well: Williams, Torres and Morales all have exes that still loom large, despite trying to focus on their futures, including a new relationship for Torres.’
It went on to say: ‘Inner-group conflict will, of course, arise as well, despite Christie and O’Neal both trying to bring the women together and find peach among each other. Dynamics will be further shaken up by the return of Chijindu, as well as the newcomers.’
