Stephon Marbury may not be in the NBA any more, but fans of his championship winning team in China can check out Steph’s wife Tasha on the next season of VH1’s Basketball Wives.
Tasha Marbury is in final talks to join the show — a much needed cast replacement after Royce, Jennifer and Kesha were all axed.
We’re told producers approached Tasha for two main reasons … she’s actually a basketball wife (she and Stephon married in 2002) … and secondly she’s already friends with some of the other “wives.”
Sources tell us, Tasha was previously asked to do season 1 of “BB Wives”, except Stephon nixed the idea — but now he lives in China part time playing for the Beijing Ducks … and changed his tune.
Still no word on whether or not Evelyn Lozada will be returning to the show next season or not.
