Two Basketball Wives MVP’s are coming to spice things up in Los Angeles. Shaunie O’Neal and Tami Roman will now be joining the L.A. cast for season 4 which is slated to begin airing on Vh1 in July.

HipHollywood caught up with O’Neal in Los Angeles where she was hosting an event for her son’s clothing line Stay Based, and she let us in on why she was making the move.

“It just needed something,” admitted O’Neal of the show she also executive produces.  “And I think it gets good, it almost gets competitive unintentionally.”

O’Neal and Roman will be joining Draya Michele, Jackie Christie, Malaysia Pargo and Brandi Maxiell and newcomer Meghan James from Bad Girls Club for season 4.

But while O’Neal and Roman have officially joined the cast, O’Neal told us that a few other Miami cast members may be making an appearance. “I have a couple of good surprises in store this season ,” said the mother of 5. “Be patient, stay tuned, there will be some faces that you will be very surprised to see.”

And if you’re wondering if Basketball Wives Miami has been canceled, O’Neal says not necessarily.  “They never officially ended Miami, but none of us have ties to Miami anymore,” explained O’Neal who now resides in Los Angeles. “So it didn’t make sense, we would all have to fly there just to shoot. So I guess you can say Basketball Wives Miami is officially gone, but you’ll still see the ladies of Miami floating around.”

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
