For ladies anxious to watch basketballers’ baby’s mamas argue on Sunset Boulevard, they’re in luck now that a new season of “Basketball Wives L.A.” is on the way with yet another new cast member. On Wednesday, VH1 confirmed that Shaunie O’ Neal’s hit will feature a virtually unknown female rapper hoping to break into the music biz. Rapper Bambi, who goes by the name “Adiz Bambi” and is a self-professed member of the “Lipstick Gang,” will join Draya Michelle, Laura Govan, Gloria Govan and Malaysia Pargo for the new season. Brooke Bailey, a video vixen, was also recently announced as a new addition.
While Bambi’s addition to the program seems haphazard, it’s actually not; she’s the reported best friend of Pargo, who is the wife of NBA player Jannero Pargo. So far there’s no word on which basketball player Bambi is associated with. The rapper previously won Hot 107.9 FM’s Battlegrounds rap battle seven days in a row. You can figure out for yourself just who “Adiz Bambi” is when “Basketball Wives L.A.” returns in September. –danielle canada
