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.

Steelers suck    

Can someone tell me why it's called Basketball Wives??? From what I've read, very few of them are married. Most are just "baby mama".

The show should be called "baby mama hoes from ignorant dumb millioneers who will soon be broke".

This group will make Jersey Shore seem classy.

Can't wait to watch the train wreck:).

I like Royce- they need to get rid of Tami's crazy ass. There is seriously something wrong with that woman & they need to revoke her day pass before she gets sued for biting someone. Her poor daughters must be dying of embarrassment because of her.

I thought the show was basketball WIVES? Sounds more like Basketball Ex-Wives and baby mamas. Basically it should be call Basketball Groupies since all these women were prob NBA Groupies looking to land a kid from a star so they can bank off it.

why do these idiots even marry these money grubbing sluts? it doesn't make any sense. These sheety tv shows prove that these ***-guzzlers only want $$$$$$ and "fame" although I doubt anyone cares who they are even when they have a "show". More proof money doesn't buy class. Also never heard of this guy so if he's not even famous now, how does this broke ho expect to get famous from degrading her entire race on national television. These shows perpetuate stereotypes especially since you know there will be no white beaches on this show... Yes white people see one black person act a fool and think all black people are the same way, so just stop it.

Basketball Wives? Hardly any of these women are married to NBA players. It should be called...NBA Players...And the Women Who Love Them!

CB was just featured in the March 2011 ELLE discussing how mature and cultured and "above the frey" he is. Also discussed his new "boo" etc,, etc.. So I wonder if the baby-mama talked about here is the one that was mentioned as being "unladylike" as well...?

The closest they come to being basketball WIVES is two are EX wives. Another garbage piece of TV. They are a bunch of real classy ladies for all the money they have.

There are a lot of married basketball players so why don't they use them for the program...because they want drama, they get these low life sluts that aren't married to the players because they are drama queens. It's all about ratings. My problem with it is that they make "US" look bad. I'm even more appalled that they used the term "Baby Mama". I don't hear them using that term for the unmarried Caucasian women. People use derogatory racist terms all the time and think African Americans are too stupid to pick-up on it. TMZ is a joke.
