Preview: ‘Basketball Wives: LA’

    The team for "Basketball Wives: LA" is going to give the Miami cast a run for its money.

    VH1 has released the supertrailer for the "Basketball Wives" spin-off and here’s our impression of the cast so far.

    Jackie Christie: Early reports on the show pegged Jackie as the star player for the series. Everyone knows that she keeps a tight leash on her marriage to Doug Christie, and the couple renews their vows every year.  Some thought her alpha-female vibe might rub some women the wrong way, but she could stay out of the fray on "Basketball Wives: LA." Bonus: she let’s people know when they’re about to make a mistake that could get them popped.

    Gloria Govan: The Miami transplant seems to be up to her old ways, sizing up the cast member with the most provactive past. Yet again, she seems to be prepared not to like some cast mates.

    Laura Govan: Laura might be the surprise of the season. Not much is really known about her personality, but it looks like she tries to hit Malaysia Pargo with the "He-Man Mush" (a la Tami Roman) during a volatile meal with the cast.

    Malaysia Pargo: Malaysia is unapologetic about her opinions, but she has the potential to deliver to some decent one-liners.

    Kimsha Artest: For some reason, Kimsha reminds us of Tami. Neither one of them is going to hold back their thoughts or back down from a fight. The question is, will Kimsha smack somebody this season?

    Draya Michele: We still can’t quite figure out why Draya was cast on the show if for no other reason than to give the other wives a target. She’s dated men in the NBA and she used to be stripper, but so have a lot of other women that pro atheletes get involved with. We can appreciate that she does’t seem to get too ignorant in the supertrailer.

    Imani Showalter: Imani might be a non-motherf*@kin’ on this show as the clip, which you can watch below, didn’t show too much of her.  What we did see, didn’t say much about her personality. Yaaawn.
