After having dropped three of their stars, VH1 had to find some new wives to fill the spots of those not returning for another season!

First up on their radar was Tasha Marbury, the beautiful wife of ex-NBA player Stephon Marbury.

Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed, and Kesha Nichols won’t be returning this season and after her recent domestic violence issue, it is unclear if fan favorite  Evelyn Lozada will be returning.

TMZ reports:

Sources close to the production tell us … Tasha Marbury is in final talks to join the show — a much needed cast replacement after Royce, Jennifer and Kesha were all axed.

We’re told producers approached Tasha for two main reasons … she’s actually a basketball wife (she and Stephon married in 2002) … and secondly she’s already friends with some of the other “wives.”

Several newcomers should make for an interesting season as the dynamics are expected to change.

Tasha was originally approached for season one of the controversial reality TV show but her husband, who she married in 2002, wasn’t too happy about it. Marbury now lives in China part time playing for the Beijing Ducks and has apparently had a change of heart.

We are glad to have her on board! She’s a beauty, an actual wife and it should be interesting see what she brings to the table.

Do you guys think she will be a good addition to the show?
