Brandi Maxiell is returning to ‘Basketball Wives LA’ and let’s just say Shaunie O’Neal is not happy.
Not once, but twice Shaunie has insinuated that Maxiell’s services are no longer needed; however producers of the VH1 show have decided to bring her back for another season.
Sources close to The Jasmine Brand stated, “Producers thought they had enough new blood this season, but the new cast members aren’t bringing enough drama and energy to the season. They’re a little dry.”
It was announced that ‘Basketball Wives Miami’ star Evelyn Lozada would be making her big return to the show in addition to newcomers Keonna Green (Nick Young’s baby mama) and Aja Metoyer (Dwyane Wade’s baby mama).
Producers close the show say that the both Keonna and Aja can’t legally discuss their children’s fathers in depth. “They were brought on the show because of who they have children with. If they can’t discuss them on the show, it’s pointless.”
Not being able to discuss the drama between these women and their children’s fathers have made for a stale season and producers are hoping that bring back Brandi and Malaysia will spice up the show and bring the drama.
The Jasmine Brand has been told that Shaunie O’Neal didn’t want Brandi back. “She’s tried to get her off the show for the last two seasons, but she knows for now, they need what Brandi brings.”
