L.A. Lakers executive Jeanie Buss–the girlfriend of Lakers coach Phil Jackson and the daughter of team owner Jerry Buss–is meeting with casting execs from “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” about possibly joining the show, TMZ.com reported.
Producers for the show reportedly attended a Lakers game recently to watch Jeanie Buss in action. She is the NBA champion team’s executive VP of business operations, and is described in the story as “arguably the most powerful woman in sports.”
Sources involved with the show reportedly confirmed the meetings. The story points out that the family of current cast member Adrienne Maloof-Nassif owns one of the Lakers’ NBA rivals, the Sacramento Kings.
Bravo would not comment on casting for the show, the story says.
