Published On July 18, 2013 | By Jasmine Simpkins | EXCLUSIVES, NEWS, SPORTS, TELEVISION, VIDEOS

And then there was 5. After a tumultuous fourth season, full of catfights, bullying and bag stealing,  the ladies of Basketball Wives are back, but this time with a smaller circle.

VH1  announced today that Season 5 would be returning August 19th and based on the promo pics, they’ve finally let go of some cast members. But then again are we surprised?

Royce Reed, Keisha Nichols, Jennifer Williams and Kenya Bell have been cut from the cast and replaced by only one new wife, Tasha Marbury.

According to VH1, Marbury, who has been married to former NYC Knicks guard Stephon Marbury for 17 years, will be dealing with some of the scandalous rumors surrounding her marriage. Meanwhile, Evelyn will be making attempts at rebuilding her life after the violent altercation with her now ex-husband Chad Johnson. And if thats not enough, Season 5 will also witness the return of  a notorious wife from seasons past, a confrontation with a woman whose alleged relationship with a player puts one of the wives in an uncomfortable position, and another unforgettable turmoil-filled girls’ trip to London.

Oh boy! Basketball Wives Season 5 is set to premiere August 19 at 8PM.

    I’m not here for another season of BBW. It got ridiculous last season, and I believe the length of time it took Vh1 to air this new season will be reflected in the ratings. Keeping Suzie, but letting other far more entertaining castmembers go was a shady move. I admit it started off good, (trashy though it was), but Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada ruined it for me.

    The fact that they letb go of the CLASSIEST LADIES (Royce, Kesha, Kenya, & Jennifer) lets me know these heffa haven’t changed one bit!!!!!!!! If Tami & Evelyn had ANY SELF RESPECT, they would have left after last season!!!!!!!! Shaunie is nothing but a pimp, & these are her HOES (execpt for Tasha, cause I don’t know her)!!!!!!!!!!

    The last I heard this is THE U. S. OF A. WHERE YOU CAN SAY WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT, And voice your opinions. Now if you want to watch Basketball wives, girlfriends, jumpoffs, baby mommas & side chicks? Go right ahead old girl. No one is stopping you. But if people want to comment about not liking this show? SO BE IT! How about that?

    Chris. I am glad you are well and up on your feet don’t. Go back working to hard stay focus. God Bless you

  • Disappointed

    I have decided I can’t watch this new season. Shaunie is acting way too fake trying to keep the show on the air, and it’s become a hypocritical “Lets turn on Tami yet forget all of our own many, many faults.” And yes, I am commenting on my dislike of the show because its my opinion and right to make any comment I please on an open comment board. If the sight supervisors have an issue with it they will take it down.

  • Can’t take no more

    It is very boring. I am tired of hearing about their problems

    I agree 100% shaunie you wasted your money. Tami and Evelyn you miserable asses. Get a life. I hated this show. New lady You don’t need friends like them. True haters. Susie, a prayer is needed for old fake women. Sorry Brooklyn did meet your expectations. Ladies watch, TI and Tiny. Can’t take the show get off the air.

  • Angela Brown

    The show is not good model, for young ladies. What your self worth. Sad! Vh1 we had enough.
