Gloria Govan, Laura Govan, Kimsha Artest, Imani Showalter, Malaysia Pargo, Jackie Christie and Draya Michele make up the new cast of Basketball Wives L.A.

VH1 has decided to expand their franchise to the West Coast and the show is set to air Monday, August 29 at 8PM ET/PT.

Of course, there will be drama, but it will be interesting to see which cast is better, L.A. or the lovely ladies of Miami.

For the most part, the women’s lives are full of expensive cars, mansions, glamour and family issues, as well as relationship issues with their men.

EXCLUSIVE: Shaunie O’Neal: I Have Grey Hairs!

We can’t wait to see what these ladies will bring to the table!

Shaunie O’Neal is the executive producer of this as well, congrats to her for making this a sure-to-be success! 

Check out each of the new women after the jump! 


The cast of L.A.’s Basketball Wives looking great.


Kimsha Artest is the ‘partner’ of Ron Artest and mother of three. She prefers to stay grounded, even though she lives in L.A.


Malaysia Pargo is the wife of Chicago’s Jannero Pargo. She vows to always stay strong because the life of a basketball wife will “swallow you up and spit you out.”


Imani Showalter is the ex-fiancée to player Stephen Jackson and mother of three. She says she is “rediscovering what makes me happy again… I want to find my passion and that’s where I want to go.”


Jackie Christie, the wife of retired player Doug Christie, says they have the strongest marriage in basketball. She loves the spotlight and seems unfazed by her reputation as a polarizing figure in the world of basketball wives.


Laura Govan is the sister to Gloria Govan. She is trying to rebuild her life with just her and her children. Her and her sister always stick up for family.


Gloria Govan is the fiancée of LA’s Matt Barnes. They had to relocate to L.A. because it’s Barnes’ first season playing for the Lakers. She’s taking care of her twins and also trying to ease into the Southern California lifestyle.


Draya Michele is a model and aspiring actress. She may have been known to date a lot of famous men, but she is on the show to set the record straight. “I have a million haters. I open the list of haters and it rolls across the floor.”
