Phil Jackson's GF

In Talks for 'Housewives'

2/4/2011 5:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Los Angeles Lakers exec Jeanie Buss -- arguably the most powerful woman in sports -- is in talks to join the cast of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ... TMZ has learned.

0204-jeanie-phil-getty-ex-01-credit
Sources connected to the production confirm Buss -- who's dating Lakers head coach Phil Jackson -- met with casting executives recently. In fact, producers went to a recent Lakers game to "observe" Jeanie's daily routine. 

Buss currently serves as the Executive Vice President of Business Operations for the storied NBA franchise -- which is owned by her father Jerry Buss.

We're told Jeanie is diggin' the idea ... and there's already a GREAT storyline ... because current castmember Adrienne Maloof-Nassif's family owns the rival Sacramento Kings.

Draaaaamaaaa!!!!!

Bravo declined to comment about casting.

Jeanie! You're credible, respected, and real. No good can come of this. Listen to us! Don't do it!

Umm, She is great, but not great for tv. If Bravo wants watchability/trainwreck...go with Cibrian's ex!

Wasn't Ayda Field being considered for this? You know the one, she was on some short lived comedy with Kelsey Grammer and she is actually married to British bazillionaire singer Robbie Williams and lives in Beverly Hills.

What a dumb idea. The show title is Real Housewives of BH. When did she become a BH housewife?

To the clown that said "Jeanie Bus is very classy"....

If she is even considering doing the show, I would think not.

Honestly, who would EVER want to be on any of these 'Real Housewives' shows?

Nobody ever comes off as a decent human being. The producers make all these chicks look bad.

she wil completely undermine her credibility as a business woman if she engages in any of the typical drama found on these shows.
