Tami Roman is the ex-wife of retired basketball player Kenny Anderson. The mother of two and former Real World star continues to focus on her personal development.
Tami is too busy crisscrossing the country making appearances and planning her upcoming engagement to longtime boyfriend Reggie to be worried about Evelyn anymore.
However, when Tami notices that her friend Jen has cozied back up to Evelyn, she can't help but bring to light some juicy tea that Jen's been holding onto for a long time.
Evelyn Lozada continues to bring her boogie-down Bronx charm and feisty attitude to everything. Raised solely by her mother, this Puerto Rican beauty always aspired to break out of her relatively small world, dreaming of something bigger and better.

In her social circle, a renewed closeness with an old friend causes some friction within the group that eventually explodes.
Jackie Christie, wife of retired Los Angeles player Doug Christie, is famous for her outlandish antics and over-the-top meltdowns.
Jackie is still picking up the pieces of her life after a feud with her eldest daughter hit a fever pitch last year. She still harbors residual upset toward Evelyn for getting involved in the drama with her daughter.
In an effort to better herself, Jackie is trying to change from the inside out and decides it's time to seek professional help. Will seeing a therapist help Jackie put her life back in order, or will it be too little too late?

When someone drops a nasty rumor about a lady from her crew, family bonds are put to the ultimate test.
Jennifer "Red Carpet" Williams is the ex-wife of successful professional basketball player Eric Williams.

CeCe Gutierrez is a registered nurse who is dating former L.A. player and coaching legend Byron Scott -- who also happens to be Malaysia Pargo's cousin. CeCe is hoping that Bryon will propose any day now.
Though new to the group, CeCe quickly becomes the center of attention when a joke about her past spins wildly out of control.
Ogom "OG" Chijindu is a professional football player in a women's league who also moonlights as a hairstylist, makeup artist and event planner.

Bonnie-Jill Laflin is the girlfriend of retired Los Angeles player Kareem Rush. Bonnie-Jill's background as the league's first and only female scout makes her very well-known and well-respected throughout the league.

Keonna Green is the ex-girlfriend and high-school sweetheart of a current Los Angeles player whom she's just had her second child with.

Aja Metoyer had a relationship with a well-known athlete in the NBA. While she and her sister Cristen may run in the same circles, they do not get along, so Aja doesn't mind aggressively airing all of their dirty laundry in public.

Suzie Ketcham, the life of every party and well-meaning ex of a prominent player, returns after extensive facial surgery to take on a new challenge: deciding what to do with her life. Her penchant for gossip and difficulty in keeping secrets have made the past four seasons a treat, but it's a personal tale about how she sustained her jaw injury years ago that will surprise viewers more than any of her slips in confidentiality.
Tasha, joining the circle this season, is a veteran basketball wife whose high-profile marriage to one of the sport's most successful players is not without its perils. Between tabloid reports of her husband's alleged infidelities and new battles with a stranger who's stalking her online, she's had her share of trouble recently.
She's undoubtedly a dividing presence within the circle, as her high-society persona and low tolerance for tomfoolery quickly leads to friction with certain ladies within the group. She's an entrepreneur whose reach has extended from children's clothing to an N.Y.C.-based weave salon, and she shows no signs of slowing down.

Born and raised in Orlando, FL, loving all things sports, she is a former gymnast, competitive cheerleader and dancer for professional basketball teams in both Miami and Orlando. She is the founder/owner of her own burlesque dance company, Fantashique, which travels all over Florida.
The only thing more colorful than her dance moves is her personality. She is a firecracker, a strong-minded, driven woman who is no stranger to confrontation. While she's a sweetheart most of the time, Royce can turn it on in a hot second and rarely bites her tongue. In the future, she looks forward to pursuing an acting career. This season, she tries to debunk the negative stereotype of team dancers the wives believe and continues her search for love.

An instant lightning rod for controversy within the group, the opinionated Kenya adds plenty of drama to the new franchise.
When San Antonio's Richard Jefferson called off his engagement to Kesha late in the game, she bounced back in a big way. She picked herself up and parlayed her experience as a New Jersey dancer on the court to running her own successful New York City dance group. This new addition to the group may have grown up a country girl in North Carolina, but don't think she's too sweet to speak her mind now that she is in the bright lights of the big city.
Wife of retired player and current scout Speedy Claxton, Meeka is a self-made real estate entrepreneur that specializes in high-end transactions for some of the larger names in the sports and A-list crowds. Meeka has set her sights on the Miami market and is hitting South Beach to commit to a new outpost.
No stranger to commitment, Meeka has been with her sweetheart since college. Their courtship and marriage has endured the ups and downs of a basketball league relationship and has given them two beautiful girls.
