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.”
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?
