Jayson Williams' wife joins new 'Basketball Wives'

The estranged wife of jailed basketball player Jayson Williams is the latest to be added to the cast of the forthcoming series, "Basketball Wives L.A.," a rep for the VH1 show confirmed to CNN.

Tanya Williams told the New York Post she has shot three episodes so far.

"I signed on to participate in the show to elevate the negative perception . . . that [it] is purposely filled with flighty, overly emotional and senselessly dramatic women," she told the Post via e-mail. "Yes, my life is chaotic, dramatic and surreal, but I am also a businesswoman."

As we previously reported, the West Coast spin off of Shaunie O'Neal's Miami-based "Basketball Wives" will include Gloria Govan, fiancée of Laker Matt Barnes; her sister, Laura Govan, former fiancée of  Gilbert Arenas;  Kimsha Artest, wife of Los Angeles Laker Ron Artest; Jackie Christie, wife of Doug Christie, former player for the Los Angeles Clippers; and Imani Showalter, ex-fiancée of Charlotte Bobcats' Stephen Jackson.

Williams, a  former New Jersey Nets player, is currently serving time for the fatal shooting of his limo driver.

      What the h3ll are mookie stanks? Learn how to talk before you try to go off on somebody. Instead of being 16 and pregnant,you need to be 16 and in school you little girl.

    @ Ron31- don't read and overthink their hate....it's all they do....very good points I might add though sir... I would be the same if I was married/ or girlfriend was talked to like that...it's in our nature. Some women don't like violence but people like that deserve it.

      CNN is too busy deleting the comments that aren't offensive just because 1 person clicks on it as a joke for someone to review. But they seem to leave the most vulgar & racist comments alone.

    Ok. I get the fact that you like black people,but calling them out of they're name is not right. It's closed minded people like you that is wrong with America today. Blacks,Whites,Asians,etc...are human beings and deserve the respect they deserve. Being a black person in today's society is hard enough without stupid people like you and everyone else so far that has posted hateful responses to add to it. I guess I and everyone else who agree's with me should call you "A White Trash Hon*y".I am married to a black woman and if I heard someone calling my wife or children that I would just blow up and hurt them for being disresectful and stupid. You no good for nothing piece of trash.
