About Basketball Wives
The best friends featured in this series have more than mutual companionship in common: They are either the wife, ex-wife or girlfriend of an NBA superstar. Though they drive expensive cars, live in mansions and wear designer clothes and jewelry, life is not always glamorous. Protecting what they have takes a lot of work... like fending off groupies, dealing with the jealous kind and trying to find stable ground in their often unstable world. Shaunie O'Neal, Shaquille's ex-wife, is the show's featured star and one of its executive producers.
