Being the wife or girlfriend of a professional basketball player has its advantages, from sitting courtside at the Finals to sitting port side on your husband's yacht. But outside the glare of the public spotlight, their lives may not be as glamorous as one might think. Just like many women across America, they cope with the stresses of marriage and divorce and being a single parent, the joys and trials of raising children, the highs and lows of their friendship with each other. But with the pressures of fame, the temptation and fears of infidelity, and the struggles of raising children while their men are away trying to conquer the hard court, these women have to stick together as best friends and find the inner strength together to triumph against the odds. In Basketball Wives, we'll finally get a glimpse into the secret and unique lives of the women behind these men, and we'll realize that it's not just the players they're married to . . . but also the game.

Oh my god- does TV really need another stupid reality TV show?! Apparently so...
Waste of Space
I will be surpize if this show survives seaon one. Like most fake reality shows this one also has nothing redeeming to offe. You've got to have a lot of time on your hands to want to watch these women bicker and complain about their lives. iTunes should pay people to watch this one.
OMG groupie love
They are all professional groupies who feel they are entitled to their man's money. All of them sit back, while there men cheat...all for the glam life. PLEASE! Not one of them appear to be living a happy life. All the this still makes good TV. Royce is NASTY with no class and the one with the shoe store needs therapy....
