It’s official! Malaysia Pargo is returning to “Basketball Wives: L.A.” and the premiere date for the new season has been revealed. Get those deets, plus check out the first look at Tyra Banks as the new host of “America’s Got Talent” inside…
There were rumors that Malaysia Pargo will be returning for the sixth season of “Basketball Wives: L.A.” and now it’s official. VH1 announced today that the reality star is returning to the series after she was given her walking papers back in December. We wonder if her rumored boyfriend O.T. Genasis will make a cameo or two.
She will be re-joining Shaunie O’Neal, Jackie Christie and Tami Roman. Veteran Evelyn Lozada is also making a return to the franchise this season. It’s also reported Malaysia’s bestie Brandi Maxiell will make an unexpected return to check if her “services are (still) no longer needed."
As we previously reported, Nick Young’s kids’ mother Keona Green and Dwyane Wade’s break baby’s mother Aja Metoyer will join the ladies this season.
Here’s some of the drama fans can expect this season (via press release):
Evelyn Lozada is reunited with longtime friend Shaunie O’Neal, but she quickly discovers that Tami Roman and Jackie Christie are not on the welcoming committee. With the drama swirling, Malaysia Pargo returns to Los Angeles wondering if there will be anything left of the friendships she once knew.
After being labeled the “side chick” in a very publicized celebrity relationship feud, newcomer Keonna Green [Nick Gordon's babies' mother] is ready to move past the tabloid drama. Between buzzy relationship scandals with some of basketball's biggest stars and their sisterhood, the Metoyer Sisters (Aja, Cristen and Melissa) bring their own baggage this season. Also joining the cast is Bonnie-Jill Laflin, the league’s first female scout, who may struggle with running into her famous friends’ exes.
Season 6 of “BBW” is set to premiere on Monday, April 17th at 9PM EST.
