    "Basketball Wives: Miami" cast grows

    Somehow the women of "Basketball Wives: Miami" managed to quietly begin shooting for the next season, and they’ve added some new members to the team!

    "We’re actually in New York, filming for five weeks and then we return to Miami," Tami Roman told HipHollywood.com before revealing that two new women have joined the cast. After what went down last season, Tami admitted that she’s a little shocked at how eager some women are to get on the show.

    "They should know by now that we are not wrapped too tight," Tami said, "but they still keep coming."

    Shar Jackson’s assistant commits suicide

    Shar Jackson is mourning the sudden and tragic loss of a friend.

    PerezHilton.com reports that the "Moesha" star, along with her cousin and son, were shocked to discover Shar’s former assistant hanging from a tree near her home.

    Supposedly the aide had stopped by Shar’s home last Monday and appeared distraught. The assistant began drinking while at Shar’s place before emotionally storming out of the home.

    Shar and her family became worried when the assistant didn’t come back or call, so they went searching for him in her neighborhood. The actress, her cousin and her eldest son tried to revive him after cutting him down from the tree, but it was too late.

    There’s no word on why the man would have killed himself, but  Shar is coping with the unfortunate situation by spending a lot of time with her mother.

    The second hour of the “Basketball Wives: LA” reunion promises to be as drama-filled as the first.

     

    Laura Govan is the first to be interrogated by John Salley in the second half. She reveals that she’s already back in Orlando and proudly rocking a $1 million sparkler on her left ring finger.

    The singer, known as much for her dance moves as her voice, hasn’t tweeted anything about the images or any recent accidents or surgeries.
