Stephon Marbury's Wife Tasha Set To Become Newest "Basketball Wife" + Tisha Campbell & Duane Martin Sued For BIG BUCKS For Mortgage

Stephon Marbury's wife Tasha is about to become the newest star of VH1's "Basketball Wives."  She needs something to keep her busy while her man is over in China most of the time playing for the Beijing Ducks.


Deets inside, plus Tisha Cambpell Martin & hubby Duane's mortgage drama with the bank...


"Basketball Wives" (the original) is finally getting an actual wife.  Since the only two chicks who were actually married during their season--Meeka Claxton and Kenya Bell--are no longer a part of the show, and Royce Reed, Jennifer Williams & Kesha Nichols got the boot as well, it's time to fill the slots.

VH1 tapped Tasha Marbury (pictured above on her wedding day to Stephon) because she's actually married to an ex-NBAer and is already friends with some of the cast (pictured above with Evelyn).  Not as if that friendship thing mattered in previous seasons.  According to TMZ:

Sources close to the production tell us ... Tasha Marbury is in final talks to join the show -- a much needed cast replacement after Royce, Jennifer and Kesha were all axed.


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.

By the way, Evelyn still hasn't been officially signed on for next season.  Looks like there could be almost a totally new cast.


In other news, Duane Martin and his wife Tisha are catching some heat from the bank over their mortgage.  The couple owes over $400,000 after allegedly defaulting on a 2008 loan for their waterfront Lake Arrowhead, California home.

The loan was actually a second loan taken out by the couple from City National Bank.  They allegedly already defaulted on their first loan of over $700,000, taken out from Aurora Bank.  After the bank foreclose don the property and sold it at auction for $925,000, Aurora was paid back first and the remainder given to City National.

Their City National loan ballooned to over $630,000, and only $193,000 was used from the sale of the property to satisfy this amount.  Now, of course, City National wants the rest of their money.  So they are suing the couple.

The Martins' response?  Their rep says they shouldn't be "bullied" into paying the loan because the bank received $400 million in government subsidy back in 2009 to help in situations like these.  Plus, The Martins say they are being discriminated against.  Not sure how you're entitiled to get out of a loan scott-free simply because you can't pay for it, but OK.

TMZ says the rep would not explain HOW exactly they are being discriminated against.  Alrighty then.

Stop living above your means trying to impress Will and Jada.

Brothas..... If you had a

Brothas..... If you had a woman that would join a show like "Basketball Wives" LET HER ASS GO ASAP!!! Black women love drama, and these entertainers are some "Sucka for love ass negros" when it comes to black women. You can tell a brotha that came from a single parent home, because these black women will run over them, join some ignorant ass show for fame just to be on the TV screen. Smdh.

"You can tell a brotha that

"You can tell a brotha that came from a single parent home..." - Yes, you surely can. Pot meet kettle? Nothing but constant negativity, it negates the alleged point you're trying to make. I hope you aren't like this in your everyday interaction with people. I'm sure they roll their eyes on the regular. Sometimes you make valid points but they got lost in all the bitter delivery. Hopefully, you can find a more effective way to communicate your thoughts because if you could maybe some of the truths you speak would get across. You put an awful lot of time and energy in to cutting people down, which says more about you than the people you're attempting to vilify.

"Black women love drama," he

"Black women love drama," he says. Your entire life must have been a FALLACY for you to generalize and group ALL Black women together as though we are one in the same. Whatever, 'Brotha-who-is-also-from-a-single-parent-home'! I guess Black women will run over your WEAK ASS too!

If it's the majority, YOU CAN'T HELP BUT GENERALIZE!!!I never said allllll, just the majority i see out here!! Alrite sista!!!!You aint gotta call me out my name and all of that , it just shows how typical alot you black women are!!
LetsGetIt's picture

Pray tell us Black women who

Pray tell us Black women who you consider to be the "majority"! The ratchet women in your family who were only fit to be baby mommas instead of wives? Marqueeta and LaChardonnay who live next door to "Grand-momma 'nems"? You have an illogical way of thinking, my 'Brotha'! Do you know every single Black woman from every Black culture in every Black community that exists in the entire world? Of course not! Therefore, everything you say from here on out is as invalid as your very existence. The end!

Wasn't Jennifer Williams, who was, at the time, married to retired NBA player Eric Williams, a member of the original cast? Or does her presence not count because her husband was no longer an active NBA player?
