Los Angeles, CA (September 23, 2015) – VH1 is taking no timeouts with “Basketball Wives: LA.” The network announced the hit reality series is picked up for a fifth season.

“Basketball Wives: LA” season four was explosive. Draya Michele, Malaysia Pargo, Brandi Maxiell, and Jackie Christie returned to the court ready for drama. And Queen Bee and Executive Producer, Shaunie O’Neal, joined the LA crew this season to try to keep the peace. Jackie brought in friend and basketball girlfriend, Mehgan James. Also joining the clique was wife of player Eddy Curry and Malaysia’s friend, Patrice Curry, as well as Draya’s friend, fashion designer and ex- girlfriend of Tyreke Evens, Angel Brinks. Between the new personalities, major life challenges, and old resentments, even Shaunie soon realized that the LA ladies are a very challenging group. When her old time East coast buddy, Tami Roman, joined the cast, the Basketball Wives: Miami / LA cast divide was set in stone.
