by at . Comments

Apparently people watch Basketball Wives.

VH1's erroneously named franchise keeps coming back, with a fourth (!) season getting the green light and already underway for an hour every Monday night.

Who's starring this year? These nut jobs:

Basketball Wives Season 4 Cast

Here's a brief rundown of the "roster" and what we can expect in a season that promises to up the drama like never before ... eat your hearts out, Real Housewives.

1. Shaunie O'Neal, ex-wife of future Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal.

VH1's bio: "Shaunie's goal with her series was to shed light on the complex lives of the women who stand beside these larger-than-life professional athletes."

"She's here to show that it's not all glitz and glamour ... [She] is Queen Bee to the rest of the Basketball Wives, who swarm to her for advice and guidance."

That is beyond sad. This is her fourth season on the program.

2. Evelyn Lozada, ex-fiancee of Antione Walker, current fiancee of Chad Ochocinco (an NFL player, not a basketball star, and soon to be Chad Johnson again).

VH1: "She is highly regarded as a fashionista ... Evelyn is photographed not just because of ex-fiance's game, but because of her own impressive 'shoe game.'"

Whatever. Like Shaunie, she is an original cast member.

3. Royce Reed, mother of Dwight Howard's son.

"Royce Reed is a firecracker, a strong-minded, driven woman who is no stranger to confrontation," VH1 says of this returning full-time cast member.

4. Suzie Ketcham, ex-girlfriend of NBA bust Michael Olowokondi.

"Suzie knows the ins and outs of the 'game' and is extremely protective and loyal to her friends. If she senses that one of her ladies is being attacked, she'll be the first girl on the scene ready to have their back," VH1 says of this no-name.

5. Jennifer Williams, ex-wife of Eric Williams.

"Her mercurial relationship with Eric shows the unique challenges and hard work it takes to be the wife of a professional basketball player," VH1 teases.

6. Tami Roman, ex-wife of Kenny Anderson.

A cast member since Season 2, "Tami has a string of acting credits under her belt and currently pays the bills with her day job as a financial executive."

7. Kenya Bell, estranged wife of Charlie Bell.

The former Miss Michigan USA and first-time cast member is "an instant lightning rod for controversy within the group." She's also "opinionated." Okay.

She allegedly stabbed her then-husband Charlie Bell with a box cutter in front of their two young children. Kenya blame VH1 for casting her? Sorry.

8. Kesha Nichols, former fiancee of Richard Jefferson.

Kesha Nicole Nichols and Kenya Bell are the two newbies this season, with the former ready "to speak her mind now that she is in the bright lights of the big city."

Jefferson famously flaked last-second on his wedding to Nichols, leaving her standing at the altar in 2009. Yes, the NBA star was a runaway groom.
