With the first season of BBWLA completed, it’s time to start looking toward the future and that’s the original that started it all Basketball Wives: Miami. With Season 4 of BBW come many changes, first the series will be filmed in two cities, Miami and New York. I guess they were running out of woman in Miami. Secondly with show favorite, Evelyn Lozada leaving to star in her own reality series on VH1, and former Orlando Magic dancer Royce Reed throwing up the deuces, there were some spots that needed to be filled. According to reports, the two cast members joining season 4 are Kenya Bell and Kesha Ni’cole Nicholas.

I understand that the names of these woman mean nothing to you, but when you hear how they got their 5 minutes of fame you will say, ‘I now understand why they want to be a part of the train wreck, called BBWs’.

First there’s Kenya Bell, the former Miss Michigan USA was allegedly arrested for trying to stab her husband, Charlie Bell, with a box cutter back in 2010, while the two were going through a divorce.

Then there’s Kesha Ni’cole Nicholas who was engaged to NBA player Richard Jefferson back in 2009, but the night before their $2 million dollar wedding, Richard ended the relationship through email, and left her with the bill. Kesha’s story landed her on GMA, Today Show and on the cover of several magazines.

“Basketball Wives” returns in February on VH1.
