VH1's Los Angeles 'Basketball Wives' Partial Cast Announced

VH1 is creating a Los Angeles-based spinoff of its series Basketball Wives, reports RealityTVWorld.

The show, which is set to premiere on Monday, August 29 at 8 PM, will follow the daily drama and hilarity of select wives and girlfriends of Lakers and Clippers players. The cast will include Kimsha Artest, Jackie Christie, Imani Showalter, Gloria Govan, and Laura Govan, among other women. Artest is married to Lakers star Ron Artest, while Christie is the wife of former Clippers player Doug Christie. Showalter is known as the ex-fiancée of the Charlotte Bobcats' Stephen Jackson. Gloria Govan was on the first season of Basketball Wives and is engaged to Lakers player Matt Barnes. Laura, Gloria's sister, is the former fiancée of the Orlando Magic's Gilbert Arenas and the mother of his four children.

This cast isn't complete yet. While we don't know who else is joining the reality show, here are some spouses we think would liven up the courtside scene...
