Basketball Wives Star Vanessa Bryant and $75 Million

Basketball Wives is asking Vanessa Bryant to join the team of reality stars on VH1 since Kimsha Artest quit the show, and it all comes at the right time, with a divorce filing and a check from Kobe that’s worth $75 million.

The producers want her on the show because there’s so much drama that could unfold. Will she do it? Well, most of her friends say she won’t, but some of them think she might join this crazy team of wives.

Now in the midst of divorcing Lakers superstar Kobe, Vanessa is being considered for a spot on the VH1 show, TMZ.com reported.

“Vanessa has more than enough story line and would bring the show to another level,” a source close to the reality show told the gossip site.

Vanessa, 29, filed for divorce from Kobe Bryant, 31, in December, ending her 101/2 year marriage to the five-time NBA champion over “irreconcilable differences.” The couple has two children, Natalia, 8, and Giana, 5.

The former backup dancer stuck by the hoop star after he admitted to a 2003 sexual encounter with a concierge in a Colorado hotel who accused him of rape. There were other rumors of infidelity, however, that reportedly played a role in the divorce.

Do you think Vanessa will be part of the show? Most people voted “yes” in the poll we did on January 24.
