LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The strong, independent and sexy ladies of VH1's "Basketball Wives" are back for a fourth season. The ladies open up a new chapter in their lives in New York City as they recover from last season's fall-outs and welcome two new cast members, Kenya Bell and Kesha Nichols, who also know that being in a relationship with a pro-basketball player isn't as glamorous as one might think. From the ladies show-stopping fashion to their drama and betrayal, VH1 is going deeper into their friendships and relationships to deliver a powerful season four of "Basketball Wives" returning Monday, February 20 at 8PM.*
In season four of "Basketball Wives" the two new ladies alter the ever-changing landscape and dynamic among these women. Newcomer Kesha Nichols survived every girl's worst nightmare, having her engagement broken off by her ball-playing fiance via email shortly before their wedding. Kenya Bell is in the process of finalizing a divorce from a basketball star and is one of the most notorious and controversial wives in the league, whose infamous reputation is well-known by the other wives. Shaunie O'Neal is on the path to establishing herself as a business mogul. Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams' 12-year friendship is in a precarious position. Will it recover from last season's fracture? Strong-willed Tami Roman continues to be a force to be reckoned with both socially and now in business. Royce Reed and Suzie Ketcham attempt to navigate uncharted waters as new chapters open in their lives.
These powerful women aren't going to let ex-husbands, challenged friendships or public scrutiny get them down. Having a relationship with a pro basketball player isn't always easy but we've watched as these women have shown viewers time and time again how they persevere through difficult times. Tune-in to VH1 on Monday, February 20th at 8PM* as the excitement and fireworks continue.
