5 Burning Questions Ahead of ‘Basketball Wives’ Season 8 Premiere

Basketball Wives” is coming back to screens in less than two weeks, and before viewers catch the ladies on the VH1 series, there are lots of questions that still need to be answered. Last season, the finale concluded in Amsterdam as Shaunie O’Neal, Jackie Christie, Malaysia Pargo, Evelyn Lozada, OgomO.G.” Chijindu, Cece Gutierrez and Kristen Scott took a trip to help O’Neal research her burgeoning pot business. Things ended with Jennifer Williams showing up unannounced in an attempt to have O’Neal hear her out about the rumor she partially spread about Lozada. However, Williams’ presence was unwelcome and a fed up Pargo famously hurled a table in her direction.

So before “Basketball Wives” makes the move to Wednesday nights this summer, below are 5 questions that fans are dying to know the answers to when the show returns June 19 at 8 p.m.

Did Jackie Christie Actually Get Into a Scuffle at a Skating Rink?

Jackie Christie teased in an April Instagram video that she was quitting the show after a 1990s theme party. While she’s been prominently shown in the new season promos, it remains to be seen why she apparently nearly bounced from the series. Around the time of the bash, she said in another IG clip that she “got into it at the skating rink,” Rumors say she got in a tussle with a mystery cast member, but fans will have to wait to see if that plays out on screen this season.

Will Tami Roman’s Wedding Be Covered?

Tami Roman has been dating her man Reggie Youngblood for the past six years but she’s long had cold feet about walking down the aisle. Last season, she admitted to Youngblood that she didn’t want to get hitched. However, a marriage certificate unearthed by The Blast revealed she and her beau actually wed in August 2018. It remains to be seen if the nuptials or their marriage will be covered on the show but fans are bursting at the seams to know the details.

What’s the Status of Jennifer Williams’ Friendships?

Jennifer Williams ended season 7 on an island all on her own when she failed to successfully chat about the big rumor that Evelyn Lozada allegedly slept with an ex of Shaunie O’Neal. Rumors are swirling that Williams’ pal Dominique Lenard may join her on the show, so while she doesn’t have any current cast members in her corner — especially not Lozada — she may not be singled out forever.

How’s Evelyn Lozada’s Love Life?

Evelyn Lozada hasn’t been so lucky in love. Her relationships with Chad “Ohiocinco” Johnson and Carl Crawford have each failed. But the star has noted on Instagram that she’s more than open to finding love. She declared in March, “I ain’t curving no dudes this year! May the best one win! I’m going on dates with all of ya’ll.”

How Is Shaunie O’Neal’s Son Doing After Heart Surgery?

There hasn’t been much of an update surrounding Shaunie O’Neal’s son
Shareef O’Neal after he went to get corrective heart surgery in December for an electrical issue. However, the star finally gave fans a semblance of an update in March telling them he’d been “CLEARED with NO LIMITATIONS!” How he’s doing mid-year should be seen when “Basketball Wives” returns this month.
