Stephon Marbury may have faded from the spotlight a bit since he left the NBA to play basketball in China, but his wife could be about to recapture some of it. According to a report from TMZ.com, Tasha Marbury is in final talks to join the VH1 reality series “Basketball Wives.”

Producers reportedly approached Tasha because she is an actual basketball wife — unlike some other cast members on the show — and is friends with some of the other “wives” who are already cast for the upcoming season.

Sources also told TMZ that this is the second time Tasha has been approached to appear on the show. Stephon supposedly nixed the idea the first time it came up, but it appears he has changed his mind now that he is in China playing for the Beijing Ducks. Perhaps the way the fans in China worship Stephon has lightened his mood a bit.

Tasha married Stephon in 2002, so they have been married for quite some time. If she has a tendency to say anything similar to the insane things Stephon says, the show’s producers have struck gold.
