Two heavy hitters have reportedly been added to the BBWLA Season 6 cast, and current NBA ballers Dwyane Wade and Nick Young won’t be pleased to hear it. According to a new report over at BET, Wade’s baby mama Aja Metoyer and Young’s former flame Keonna Green are both set to join the cast.
Aja, pictured above, is best known for mothering Wade’s child back in 2013 when he was on a break from then-girlfriend and current wife Gabrielle Union. And Keonna Green’s first pregnancy was one of the reasons that her baby daddy, current Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young, had Iggy Azalea break off she and Young’s engagement after a year and a half together. It’s built-in drama with the new cast members!
BET’s report also claims that Evelyn Lozada, who was fired unceremoniously after BBWLA Season 4, will be coming back for more.
But Basketball Wives LA desperately needed an infusion of new cast members following an especially acrimonious Season 5. The reunion special alone saw two high-profile departures: Season 5 addition DJ Duffey was fired after her ongoing battles with her cast mates became too much to bear, and Angel Brinks strongly suggested that she was quitting the show in order to focus on her fashion line. (Brinks has yet to confirm that she did, in fact, quit.)
In addition, it’s rumored that OG cast member Jackie Christie quit the show in favor of a career both acting in and producing movies.
Basketball Wives LA Season 6 is expected to begin shooting in the spring of 2017.
