We are just weeks away from the Season 5 premiere of Basketball Wives! The show kicks off on Monday, August 19, and we are counting down the days. In a recent VH1 press release, the network gave us some clues about what's to come this year.

"This time around, Basketball Wives double dribbles both excitement and surprises, beginning with Evelyn Lozada's first attempts at extinguishing the media flames surrounding the altercation with her now ex-husband," the excerpt reads, referencing the incident between Evelyn and Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson.

The release goes on to say, "Back this season with their own passions and ambitions are Tami Roman, Suzie Ketcham and Shaunie O'Neal. New to the scene this season is Evelyn's friend Tasha Marbury whose scandalous marriage of seventeen years to Stephon Marbury of the Beijing Ducks has the rest of the girls whispering. Season five also witnesses the return of a notorious wife from seasons past, a confrontation with a woman whose alleged relationship with a player puts one of the wives in an uncomfortable position, and another unforgettable turmoil-filled girls' trip to London."
