Miami Heat Banned Players & Wives From Appearing On VH1 Basketball Wives

06May10

It seems that the NBA‘s Miami Heat are not fans of new hit VH1 reality show Basketball Wives. I recently interviewed one of the break-out stars of the show Suzie Ketcham and she had this to say on the matter:

LM:  We’ve always heard rumors about: the infidelity, the groupies and the drama that goes on behind the scenes. Do you think that the NBA and the players are upset that you ladies are shedding light on the reality of what goes on behind closed doors?
 
SK: Not just the players but the whole entire NBA HATES this show. People always say why is this show called Basketball Wives when most of you aren’t even wives. But I’m going to tell you the truth, if all of us were wives the “men” would not let us do the show.
Jen is married and her husband’s not happy about the show. Shaunie, of course is getting a divorce and Matt Barnes is livid about the whole thing! I really don’t know why he even signed on if he was going to be pissed about it. But yeah, it’s bad. 
 
The NBA hates it. I heard that the Miami Heat has put restrictions on the players and their wives: they are not allowed to do it. The wives are not allowed to be apart of the show at ALL. And I personally think that the entire NBA may put restrictions on any wife, girlfriend or player from being apart of the show. You know obviously, if the players are not allowed to do it, then they are NOT going to allow their women to do it. 
 

I reached out to Miami Heat assistant director of sports media relations Michael Lissack to confirm the restrictions and he stated: “I’m not going to make a comment on anything about that show“.

  1. 1 Theory

    How can they ban the wives, when they have no contract with the team? That hardly seems legal.

  4. I don’t blame the NBA. It would be very damaging to show how wives of players’ and coaches’ are poorly treated by their husbands on the TV screen. They must remain discreet about their adulterous and abusive ways or risk losing millions of dollars in endorsements. It is okay to be an adulterous pig, but don’t have any proof (i.e., a reality show or pictures) of your indiscretions.

    They should change the name to Basketball Babay Mamas. Only one is married & she’s on the verge of divorce…

    I actually really like the show…..its funny how a lot of people dont approve of this show, when it goes to show that this is the type of women most of these sports figures go after all of the time. I feel that if your big enough to be an adulterer like most of these guys are, then have no shame in what you do. Especially when you see these ballers in clubs all the time. If you’re married being in the club 24/7 is not a good look for you. It just screams hey im partying, while cheating on my wife.

    That is PURE bullshid. i LOVE basketball wives. Jen needs to divorce Eric, he is SOOOO ugly, girl please, you CAN do better!!!!!

    Basically, the Show is a HIT!!! And if Miami Heat BBall Wives/ or Girlfriends knew any better they would join in on the EXTRA (what if this doesn’t work out CASH!!!!!). ——Honestly, they aren’t contracted with the NBA – so I would join the show ANYWAY since their NBA Ball Player (husbands) is probably out somewhere getting a BLow JOb by another BBall Wife!!!!!

    I personally have a lot to say about the show Basketball Wives, I just got through watching it not thirty minutes ago. Shaunie’s ignorant and angry she needs to stay out of Gloria’s face and get in her sister’s face but she knows a foot will end up in her behind. Also, Shaunie is supposed to be an intricate part of the show but she acts like she don’t know what’s what half the time or that supposed to make the show more interesting? If so all it does is makes her look stupid. Suzie’s fake, and has too many faces to count then when her new man drops her dumb behind because she’s too busy being foolish for this show maybe she will get it together. Royce is not worth two full sentences, simply said: GROWN THE F**K UP! Tammy you know ain’t none of them tricks on there your friends I don’t know why Jennifer so friendly maybe she wants to make you her new piece after that wilder-beast she with drops her manly looking behind, watch your back. Evelyn girl please Chad won’t be with you into 2012 so you can hang that up and lighten up on talking trash about everyone on the show. Jennifer as stated earlier plus looking between you and Eric it’s like whatever. Neither of you are angels you just slick with yours so stop playing the victim and either move on or move up. Married to this man and he don’t consider you you need to ask yourself some serious “me” questions. Gloria keep you head up and them tramps out of your business you are the only one on the whole entire show next to Tammy who is on top of their game. All in all I won’t watch Basketball Wives if it comes back because compared to Housewives of Beverly Hills…..y’all fakin and shakin. Seriously. No class, backstabbing perpetrating wanna bes that ain’t. LOL…y’all trippin and the men have all moved on :) .
