Is Vanessa Bryant The New "Basketball Wives" STAR????
[photogallerylink id=94022 align=left]Vanessa Bryant already scored big from her divorce from Kobe, walking away with $75 million and ALL three of the couple’s mansions, totaling almost HALF of the couples assets which is around $150 million. Now, “Basketball Wives” producers are doing their best to have Vanessa become their new star.
According to TMZ, “the people behind the VH1 show are prepping to make her an offer she can’t refuse.”
Vanessa Bryant is the new eye candy for the producers, as her storyline would most likely bring the show and its ratings to a whole new level.
The producers never contemplated approaching Vanessa while she was married to Kobe because sources assured that she wouldn’t be receptive. Another reason they never asked her to star in the show was because producers knew she would be very expensive. NOW, Basketball Wive’s is one of the highest rated shows on the network and producers finally have a lot more money to spend on talents they choose.
If Vanessa accepts the offer, TMZ was told producers would “instantly make her a LEAD on the LA edition of the show.”
