NBA Star's Baby Mama Tapped for 'Basketball Wives'

2/22/2011 5:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Miami Heat superstar Chris Bosh has a brand new reason to watch VH1 -- TMZ has learned his baby mama Allison Mathis will be selected as a cast member on the next season of "Basketball Wives."

Allison Mathis Basketball Wives

Sources close to the production tell us ... Allison completed three rounds of interviews with show execs recently and was so impressive ... producers will be offering her a spot on Season 3.

Allison brings a fair share of drama to the show -- she had a public legal battle with Chris over paternity payments for their daughter back in 2009.

No word on which current cast member Allison will be replacing ... but we're hearing the move doesn't bode well for Royce Reed.

I'm with you Steelers Suck, why is it call basketball wives when none of them are currently married to any basketball players, especially Evelyn who has never been married to a player at all.

Black ladies GET SMART. these women are role models. They did it once and their getting paid for life. Sweet. What are you getting for having sex with a man? the mother who said she's raising her daughter to be independent is a FOOL. Do you want your daughter to be a spinster or married to a poor man? Yes, ladies you need to marry men for money. You give yourself to the highest bidder not the lowest.
