The season 7 premiere of Basketball Wives is just days away, and from the looks of things it will be wild!

After months of wondering if Tami Roman would be returning – she did say she was moving on – VH1 has confirmed she’s definitely coming back. Tami will be joined by longtime cast members Shaunie O’Neal, Malaysia Pargo, Jackie Christie, Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams.

The “OG women,” as VH1 describes the ladies, will welcome newcomers CeCe Gutierrez – a registered nurse who’s dating former Los Angeles Lakers player and coach Byron Scott –  and Kristen Scott, who’s married to former Lakers assistant coach Thomas Scott, Byron’s son.

Judging by the season 7 trailer, the drama will be explosive. The 30 second clip shows Jennifer snapping at one of the newbies: “You and I are not friends. If I never see you again, I am cool.”

Another newcomer shouts at someone: “Keep my name out of your mouth.”

A flustered Malaysia seemingly admits the bickering has become overwhelming and says: “I don’t know what’s real and what’s fake.”

Tami – who was called out last season for embellishing a few facts – insists she’s not a liar.

Shaunie has a confrontation with Jackie, and Jackie – who seems to have problems with everyone – rips into her nemesis Evelyn shouting she’s “done!” (complete with hand gestures).

The promo ends with the narrator saying “the drama will be OUT. OF. CONTROL.”


Basketball Wives season 7 premieres on Monday, May 14th at 9/8c on VH1.
