The new cast of Basketball Wives are busy making their presence known! Draya Michele, Imani Showalter, Laura Govan, Jackie Christie and Gloria Govan all showed up to support the 3rd Annuall Matt Barnes Athletes Vs. Celebrities Golf Classic Gala. So far it looks like the cast is very supportive of each other, but we all know from the original Basketball Wives, that will soon change. Remember, this is the cast of women that Shaunie O’Neal calls trash; I believe she’s referring to Draya Michele who was under investigation with CPS after leaving her child alone several nights to go “tanning”. Don’t forget Laura Govan, Gloria’s sister, allegedly had an affair with Shaquille O’Neal, at least that’s what Shaunie thinks.
Can’t wait for the season premiere of Basketball Wives LA August 29th on Vh1.

I found Jon B! My friends and I were just asking what happened to R&B Singer Jon B, and the last time I saw him he was riding a bike through New York, looking like a hippie. Well, the R&B singer has cleaned up and was spotted at Matt Barnes Golf Classic Gala with his wife, Danette Buck. *about to play They Don’t Know right now*
