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.
“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.
