They’re back!!! “Basketball Wives L.A.” is back once again with a few familiar faces as well as some new ones.

Via ABC News Radio:

After last week’s teaser, VH1’s Basketball Wives LA dropped a super trailer Monday that introduced three new cast members.

In the forthcoming season three, viewers will be introduced to newcomers Sundy Carter, Brittish Williams, who’s the fiance of overseas professional basketball player Lorenzo Gordon, and Brandi Maxiell, wife of the Orlando Magic’s Jason Maxiell. We’ll also see returning cast members Jackie Christie, Malaysia Pargo and Draya Michele.

In the three minute-plus super trailer, the ladies discuss infidelity. Malaysia Pargo admits that her husband, Charlotte Bobcat’s Jannero Pargo, has cheated on her, while newcomer Williams says she doesn’t mind if her man cheats on her.

“He might still dip and dab sometimes but as long as I don’t know about it we’re good,” Williams says in the trailer. “I don’t know if he dips and dabs, but do you think I put it past him?”

The super trailer also shows Christie’s daughter telling her that she used to date NFL player Orlando Scandrick, the same guy who’s now dating Draya Michele.

“Things are starting to come together and it feels right,” Draya says of her relationship with Scandrick in the trailer. “And it’s coming true just like right before my eyes.”

From the trailer, it’s also clear that the ladies still have a problem with wife of former NBA player Doug Christie, Jackie. Malaysia Pargo calls her: “insecure,” “backstabbing,” and an “old b**ch” in just three minutes.

VH1’s Basketball Wives LA is set to return Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. Eastern time.
