Two New “Basketball Wives Miami” Cast Members Confirmed

Two New “Basketball Wives Miami” Cast Members Confirmed

“Basketball Wives” producer and co-star Shaunie O’Neal, along with cast member Tami Roman, were interviewed on the red carpet of The Soul Train Awards last week.  They confirmed that there will be two new cast members this season in Miami!  According to Shaunie and Tami filming has already begun for Season 4 and, as always, it hasn’t been easy for the new girls to break into “the circle.”

The first “basketball wife” we may see is Kenya Bell, singer, former Miss Michigan USA, and mother of two.  Kenya holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering as well as an MBA.  According to Kenya she spent years helping her soon-to-be ex husband, Charlie Bell, achieve his goals and so she is now working on her own goals.  It’s been reported that Kenya was arrested earlier this year for attacking her husband, however, she maintains her innocence.  TMZ reports that Kenya has already had several fights with the girls and involved herself in lots of drama on the show, so that should make for an interesting storyline.

The second “basketball wife” being considered is Kesha Ni’cole Nichols, a former New Jersey Nets dancer who was left at the alter by her fiance, San Antonio Spurs player Richard Jefferson.  Apparently Richard called off the wedding via email.  However, in a “Good Morning America” interview in 2009 Kesha stated that she and Richard had spoken about possibly ending the wedding earlier that week but decided to “sleep on it” before making the final decision.  So the email the following day did not come as a surprise to Kesha.  Moreoever, after calling off the wedding Richard gave Kesha a sweet six figure sum to “help her move on.”  Reportedly, Kesha is getting along swell with her cast mates.

Also being considered is Carmen Murray, ex-wife of NBA player Lamond Murray and a former real estate investor turned music executive who manages Melanie Fiona.

The season is set to premiere in February 2012 with 15 episodes instead of 10.
