Basketball Wives is finally back on our TV screens after a long hiatus.

And while many of the cast members from last season have returned, there are some new faces in the mix.

One newbie that we’ve seen so far is Liza Morales, the ex-girlfriend of Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband Lamar Odom. Liza started dating the popular basketball star in high school, and they were together for 11 years.

The 41-year-old is also the mother of his three kids, one of which tragically passed away at six months old.

So far, we haven’t heard much about her life, but executive producer Shaunie O’Neal shared recently that Liza has quite a story to tell.

The Basketball Wives star had a recent chat with Hollywood Life, and she dished about the new addition and how she became a part of the show.

“I’ve known Liza for a while, but I think Liza is just kind of doing Liza right now, in real life,” shared Shaunie.

She continued, “You know, she’s just making some changes for her personally and trying new things, and she reached out about doing Basketball Wives.”

So far, we’ve seen Liza in a few scenes with Shaunie and Evelyn Lozada, as well as Malaysia Pargo, but we haven’t witnessed any interaction between her and the rest of the group.

However, that will change very soon as the cast gear up for a trip together.

During her chat with the media outlet, the Basketball Wives OG, dished more about the newbie’s stint on the show.

And the reality TV star teased that fans will certainly be interested in the story that Liza will share throughout the season.

I think that she is definitely telling a story of a single mom that still has a dad in the picture that’s been a little toxic to her personal lifestyle, and her personal, her living experiences, her living life,” shared Shaunie.

The 46-year-old continued, “She’s been kind of wrapped up in his world so much when it pertains to their kids, that it’s definitely hindered her in her personal world.”

It’s doubtful that Liza’s ex will appear on the show, but their kids, 23-year-old Destiny Odom and 19-year-old Lamar Odom Jr. are featured on the show.

It will be interesting to see how much Liza reveals about her past with Lamar Odom. We’ll have to wait and see.

Are you excited to hear more about Liza Morales’ story?

Basketball Wives airs Tuesday nights at 9/8c on VH1.
