‘Basketball Wives’ The Movie?

May 08, 2012 12:00 PM by Shayla Perry

Are Evelyn, Royce, Tami & company coming to the big screen?! No, but their story lines might be! Boss lady Shaunie O’Neal is taking her hit VH1 franchise to Hollywood with a fictional Basketball Wives movie. What’s the premise? Find out all the details after the jump.

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before….

The movie “centers around a young woman who follows her boyfriend to Miami after he gets drafted into the NBA. Thrust into the world of professional sports, she meets the other players’ wives and learns from their trials and tribulations.”

Sound familiar?

Yes, after four seasons (and a spin-off not really worthy of mention), Shaunie O’Neal is bringing her Basketball Wives to the big screen…sort of.

Though we wouldn’t be surprised if a few of the show’s cast members were given cameos — or even roles in the film, O’Neal says that the movie is pure fiction.

Co-producer Tracey Edmonds promises that the Basketball Wives movie will have characters with “rich story lines and although juicy and action packed, it’ll empower!”

Hmmm… Is it just us? Do the words “Basketball Wives” and “empower” really go together?

Tell us, are you excited about the Basketball Wives movie? Which story line(s) from the reality show do you hope to see played out in the film?

    I’ve given theses gals many chances to change my mind about this reality show. Still myself and many women find it embarrasing. Shauna should be also, but I undertand money rules to some folk. Evelyn and Tami are just 2 old bullies, constantly making fools of themselves.One would think O would be embarrased at times about her actions, but money rules. Anyone that truly loves someone, does not want them constantly making a fool of themself.I once thought the was beautiful, but beauty comes from within, and she has proven this to be true. We now find her repulsive, and degrading. Jumping onto a table! Get it together girl, there’s still hope.Tami’s, just a big Ass. thinking she’s all that, and nothing but faux.Jen is growing and they’re jealous of her genuine success.I have no interest in seeing the movie, if it’s to be a carry over of this nonense.

    I’m not interested in seeing these fools in a movie. Shaunie should be ashamed, but i guess she thinks money will buy her class. Shaunie needs to realize, we see you creating and setting up some of these idiotic scenes. You are not fooling me, you stir the pot and sit back and let your 2 main idiots bully everyone. Tammy and Evelyn are idiots. Everyone i know who use to watch the show is actually turned of after this season. Being a Black woman Shaunie, i’m surprised you would show us in such a negative way, but i guess money talks.
