Los Angeles, June 20, 2011 -- VH1 is expanding their 'Basketball Wives" franchise with an explosive new series set in Los Angeles featuring the wives and girlfriends of players both the Lakers and their cross-town rivals, the Clippers.

"Basketball Wives" Premieres on Monday, August 29 at 8pm ET/PT

Elbow throwing, trash talking and in-your-face action: forget the NBA, we're talking about their wives! The successful VH1 franchise "Basketball Wives" just tapped a new team of leading ladies to take Los Angeles by storm in "Basketball Wives LA" premiering Monday, August 29 at 8 PM ET/PT.

For the most part, these women live the life with the best cars, biggest mansions and hottest bling but living the high life is not all glamour and often there is a price to pay. Cameras will follow these women as they attempt to juggle their relationships, infidelity issues, children and friendships while trying to find the perfect balance between supporting their families and realizing their own career ambitions.
