As for “Basketball Wives,” Roman says Season 5, due to air this spring, will be a kinder, gentler show. Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed and Keisha Nichols have all departed. Tasha Marbury, the wife of former NBA star Stephon Marbury, is a new cast member.
“This time around we decided to present more of a balance,” Roman told theexaminer.com. “I mean, you’re going to get all of the drama. You’re going to have what we’re known for, everybody not getting along,” Roman admits in video below. “We’re going to have those moments, but I think it was important to show me as a mother; to show me as an actress; to show me as a spokesperson; to show me really living my real life, because my life doesn’t revolve around Evelyn, Shaunie and whoever else may be on the show. We wanted to have a little more balance.”
