‘Basketball Wives’ is a VH1 reality television series that exposes the private lives of famous personalities in the basketball industry. It follows their significant others and their lives while also exploring the dynamics between these privileged women living like stars. From shopping trips to acting classes to occasional banters, their personal lives are stripped bare.
