Basketball Wives alum Evelyn Lozada has relocated to Los Angeles and has reunited with longtime friend Shaunie O'Neal and her crew, but Tami Roman hasn't forgotten about their issues from Miami. Sparks will fly and friendships will be tested when the two cross paths for the first time in years.
As if one beef wasn't enough, Evelyn quickly finds she's made another enemy, Basketball Wives' resident loose cannon Jackie Christie. Though the two barely know each other, Evelyn threw some very public shade in Jackie's direction while stepping into the middle of a family dispute and now, Jackie is demanding answers. Can Evelyn handle the heat or will she crawl back to where she came from?
When Malaysia Pargo and Brandi Maxiell make a unexpected return to Los Angeles, will they be welcomed back by their old crew or will old grudges cause Shaunie to thank Brandi and Malaysia for their services and dismiss them once again?
Newcomer Keonna Green recently gave birth to her second child with a player from the league after being labeled the "side chick" in a very messy and very public makeup/breakup. She's ready to move on from her guy unless he's willing to give it one more try. Her friends, The Metoyer Sisters (Aja, Cristen, and Melissa) come equipped with plenty of baggage of their own - both with their men (Aja's ex is one of basketball's biggest stars) and with each other.
Bonnie-Jill Laflin, the league's first female scout, is well known and well-respected around the league but because of her many friendships with players, she may have an extremely hard time rubbing elbows with so many of her famous friends' exes, especially when the drama starts to heat up.
Elena Ahanzadeh is currently single but has dated a few players in the past. She has no problem speaking her mind no matter what the consequences may be, but how will the ladies react once Elena reveals that she has a bit of a past with one of their men?
From L.A. to Palm Springs to New York and Miami, Basketball Wives has never been hotter as the new recruits and the OGs join forces and butt heads on the most spectacular, most explosive, and most-heart wrenching season yet!
Meet the Basketball Wives cast:
Shaunie loves having her best friend Evelyn in town but she hates the fact that Evelyn and Tami are still fighting over something that happened six years ago. Will Shaunie be able to keep the peace between Evelyn and Tami or will she be forced to pick a side?
Evelyn is starting a brand new chapter in her life as she settles down in LA. She is excited to be reunited with her partner in crime and best friend, Shaunie O'Neal. Although she will try to remain stress free while undergoing IVF treatments, an old beef with Tami Roman that refuses to die will make that extremely difficult.
After many failed attempts at trying to get pregnant, Tami and Reggie look to surrogacy for one final go at having a child. In addition, Tami is forced to relive a painful chapter from her past when her old nemesis, Evelyn Lozada, comes to town and reignites a fiery rivalry Tami thought she'd left behind.
Jackie is trying to stay drama free so that she can focus on what matters the most to her - her family. However, things get turned upside down when Evelyn Lozada's arrival in LA causes a chain reaction that leaves Jackie's world crumbled and even her oldest friendships in question.
When Malaysia returns to the group, she finds that Shaunie's former Miami crew has taken over her old turf. However, Malaysia is unwilling to give up LA without a fight.
Because Bonnie-Jill works so closely with so many players, she may have a hard time running in the same circle as many of their ex-girlfriends, side chicks, and babies' mothers.
On the heels of a very public makeup and breakup with that player and the pop star he's been dating, Keonna turns to Shaunie for some relationship advice and a fresh start.
Basketball Wives Season 6 premieres on Monday, April 17 at 9pm/8c on VH1!
