Basketball Wives will return for its eighth season on VH1 this summer, and on a different night.
The show is welcoming back longtime cast members Shaunie O’Neal, Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman, Jackie Christie, Malaysia Pargo and Jennifer Williams. Kristen Scott, Cece Gutierrez and Ogum Chijindu return for their second year, and there will be a new cast member, Feby Torres.
The upcoming 16-episode installment will continue to highlight the women as they balance careers, love, families and friends, but the series is moving to Wednesday instead of its usual Monday showings.
On the motherhood front, O’Neal will focus on second chances and correcting her mistakes after her eldest son’s recent heart surgery; Christie deals with empty nest syndrome as her son heads to college; and Lozada tries to be the best mother to her two children until old habits resurface.
Conflict is still at the heart of the series, and cast members including Roman, Pargo and Williams will be dealing with unresolved confrontations and unsettling rumors.
Basketball Wives Season Eight debuts on VH1 starting June 19 at 8 p.m. ET. Watch the promo teaser below.
