While VH1’s Basketball Wives has been many people’s guilty reality show pleasure for the past four seasons, star Tami Roman says that fans should get ready for a major show overhaul.

“People are really going to be surprised at the approach we’re going to take this season because it’s more family oriented, not as much drama,” Roman tells CocoaFab exclusively.

After months of mounting pressure to improve the quality of the show and to stop instigating physical altercations, executive producer Shaunie O’Neal has decided to listen to the critics.

“What you’ve seen in past seasons was real, but that’s not how our lives are 98% of the time. We’re excited to show you more than just the drama,” says Roman, who is also working on a scripted show for TVOne entitled “Belle’s” alongside Elise Neal about a well-to-do black family that runs a restaurant named Belle’s.

“I’m a busy mom and I have a new show coming out and I’m focused on that,” she insists. “I’m really a loving person and you’ll see that on season five.”

After the fourth season, Shaunie O’ Neal made major changes to the cast by firing Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed, and Kesha Nichols. VH1 and Shed Media US have reportedly announced that Tasha Marbury (wife of Stephon Marbury), Brandi Garnett (wife of Kevin Garnett), Hope Alexa (Dwight Howard’s ex) will join the cast for season 5. Filming for season 5 began shooting in mid November/beginning of December in Miami.

    […] Kevin Garnett’s wife, Brandi, and former Celtic Stephon Marbury’s wife, Tasha, will be t….” I guess Shaq’s ex Shaunie O’Neal is in charge of hiring and picked Mrs. Garnett, Mrs. Marbury and Dwight Howard’s ex to join the cast. As long as KG isn’t involved in the show it really shouldn’t matter. Hopefully Brandi doesn’t dish too much dirt. I’ve never watched an episode of this garbage, but every time I’m scrolling through channels and I flip through it I hear a quick sound bite of women yelling and threatening to fight each other. […]
