This season, "Basketball Wives" continues to explore the drama, intrigue, and delicate relationships found among a unique cross section of women bound by one fact: each has been married to, the fiancé of, or in love with, a professional ball player.
In season four, episodes span from New York to Miami to LA and beyond, but wherever these women go, there is never a dull moment. From the pressure of juggling long-distance relationships, to the stress of struggling to establish financial independence, "Basketball Wives" digs deep beneath the surface. The series explores the emotional ups and downs of a life that many might envy, but few could actually imagine. As with any group of ambitious, smart, hard-working, sexy women, there are strong friendships, betrayal, breakups and make-ups. In this world, the stakes are higher, the alimony payments rise into the millions, and the significant others happen to be global superstars.
This season, Shaunie O'Neal is on the path to establishing herself as a business mogul. Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams' 12-year friendship is in a precarious position. Will it recover from last season's fracture? Royce Reed and Suzie Ketcham attempt to navigate uncharted waters as new chapters open in their lives. We will welcome two new ladies, whose presence will alter the ever-changing landscape. Newcomer Kesha Nichols survived every girl's worst nightmare, having her engagement broken off by her ball playing fiancé, just hours before their wedding. Kenya Bell is an aspiring recording artist, finalizing her divorce from a basketball star.
It is no wonder that viewers have found this unique window into a rarely exposed world utterly addictive. As our ladies deal with relationships, life with superstars, and public scrutiny, we watch powerful female support networks thrive and fail, and friendships strengthen or flame out in spectacular fashion. With new cast members, new twists and turns and emotions running higher than ever, season four of Basketball Wives promises to be the best yet.
