Basketball Wives


As the days go by, it’s starting to seem more and more plausible that Evelyn Lozada will not be returning to Basketball Wives.

For starters, TMZ reported last week that Evelyn gave the show producers an ultimatum to either pay her $20,000 an episode or she walks for good. Sources close to the production told TMZ that Evelyn and her costars currently pull in around $7,500 an episode.

And then just yesterday, TMZ reported that Evelyn is in talks with the E! network regarding a spinoff show with fiance Chad Ochocinco. Sources close to Evelyn reveal that E! approached her with the new offer as soon as they discovered she wanted to quit Basketball Wives.

As for the reason Evelyn wants to quit the show, she is reportedly very upset with the way the finale episode turned out and is blaming producers for instigating the fight between her and costar Tami Roman. Evelyn has yet to make a final decision but sources add that she and Chad are seriously entertaining the E! offer.

And speaking of Chad and Evelyn, the couple spoke to PEOPLE magazine during which they both stated they will not be rushing to the altar anytime soon.

“He has four kids. I have one. We want to be engaged for at least a year and enjoy our time with our children, and then we’re going to plan our wedding,” Evelyn told PEOPLE, adding that they would both like to have more children. “The more kids, the happier I am,” she said.

So how does Chad feel about the dramatic finale of Basketball Wives during which Evelyn admitted to having once slept with former NBA player Kenny Anderson, while he was still married to costar Tami? Chad revealed all is well because they don’t hide anything from each other.

“I know everything about her, so there are no surprises,” said Chad. “My grandma says, ‘Always marry your best friend, because your best friend will be able to tell you anything and not hide nothing.’ That’s one of the things I really like, which is one of the reasons why she’s wearing that ring.”

Evelyn added that she had a hard time dealing with the backlash from the show. “I was having a hard time [watching],” she said. “I have a lot of followers on Twitter, so everyone has an opinion on your life, and they think they know you. Some of the things they say are hurtful, but he made me keep it together. He’s very supportive with everything.”

A week after the dramatic finale episode, which brought in very high ratings, the Basketball Wives reunion airs tonight on VH1.

Hosting the reunion this year will be former NBA star John Salley.  The ladies will all sit together to rehash the events that occurred this season, including the fight that broke out between Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada last week, over Evelyn’s admission that she had slept with Tami’s ex-husband Kenny Anderson.

Since that episode aired, there have been rumors that Evelyn also slept with her BFF Jennifer Williams’s husband Eric Williams, but we can rest assure you that rumor is very false.

The reunion will be airing in two parts.  The first part airs tonight at 8/7c with part two airing tomorrow night, March 14 at 8/7c.  Gloria Govan will also be a part of the reunion show, appearing at some point.  A sneak peek is below.

In other news, it seems Royce Reed might be returning next season after all despite the recent comments made by Shaunie O’nealAccording to TMZ, Royce’s would be replacement Allison Mathis was axed by VH1 after her ex/baby daddy Chris Bosh put up a fight.

Apparently, Chris did not want Allison nor their daughter on the show, and VH1 simply decided Allison wasn’t worth the headache.  Sources say this move means Royce will likely be returning though producers are still hoping for a last-minute replacement.

Days following the dramatic finale episode on the second season of Basketball Wives, TMZ is reporting the show’s star Evelyn Lozada wants to quit the show for good.

The reason? Evelyn feels she was stabbed in the back by Shaunie the producers of the show. More specifically, Evelyn feels the producers violated her trust by telling costar Tami Roman that she slept with her husband while she was still married to him. Though Evelyn claims she wasn’t aware Kenny Anderson was married during the time and that they dated for 6 months.

Evelyn believes Shaunie producers leaked the information to Tami in an effort to incite the violent confrontation that took place on the show’s finale between the two costars. She now “feels completely betrayed” and fired off an email to producers on Monday night saying she wants nothing to do with the show.

Perhaps the reports of Evelyn being in talks to get a spinoff show with fiance Chad Ochiconco might be part of the reason she is so willing to walk away from Basketball Wives.

And speaking of Shaunie O’Neal, who might or might not have not instigated the whole drama for show ratings (she’s also a producer on the show), she is now defending herself as some fans feel she is to blame for the fight. In a new interview with VH1, Shaunie claims she can’t be held responsible for the fight because she wasn’t aware of Evelyn’s secret.

“I couldn’t start something I didn’t know. I didn’t know that about Evelyn… Before we brought Tami on the show, I talked to Evelyn and Jen, just to run it past them and to see if they knew her. It was kind of like, “I’ve heard of her,” no big deal,” said Shaunie. “Did I hold a gun to Evelyn’s head and say, “You gotta go”? No. Did I think telling Tami was what she should have done? Yes. The only reason I went with her was to support both of them. I felt both sides.”

As for Tami, she tweeted on Sunday night she “felt stupid” upon finding out Evelyn’s secret, citing that everybody knew but her. “My thing is – I don’t care that @EvelynLozada slept w/Kenny- WHO DIDN’T. I was more concerned about the friendship I thought we were developing,” tweeted Tami.

And finally, a third season of Basketball Wives is a sure thing at the moment as Sunday night’s finale was the highest rated episode of the series plus the highest rated show on the VH1 network since 2009, with over 2.3 million total viewers tuning in. The ratings even helped the debut of new series Love & Hip Hop which also received high ratings with over 1.9 million viewers. VH1 reveals Love & Hip Hop will officially premiere on Monday, March 14 at 10:30/9:30c

The brewing Evelyn Lozada vs Tami Roman feud reaches a boiling point tonight as things get physical between the two ladies. The reason? Evelyn admits to having slept with Tami’s ex-husband Kenny Anderson. Wowzers!

Tami loses it as she believes the sexy times between Evelyn and Kenny occurred while she was still married to Kenny. Evelyn also travels to Cincinnati to visit Chad Ochocinco. A preview clip of the finale episode is below.

Reunion – Yes, there will be a reunion for the show, and it will be a two part series with part 1 airing next Sunday.

And finally, weeks after Shaunie O’Neal revealed the plan to replace Royce Reed on the show’s third season, TMZ is reporting that Allison Mathis, baby mama to NBA player Chris Bosh, will be asked to join the cast. TMZ also speculates that Allison will likely be replacing Royce.

The finale episode airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c.

Also, premiering tonight on VH1 is new series Love & Hip Hop, a new docu-soap series that follows the lives of four women. The cast includes Chrissy Lampkin – long term girlfriend of rapper Jim Jones, Somaya Reece - model/rapper, Emily Bustamante – stylist & baby mama of rapper Fabolous, Olivia Longott – R&B singer, plus Mashonda Tifrere – ex-wife of producer Swizz Beatz.

It seems Royce Reed’s days on VH1′s Basketball Wives are numbered.

According to a TMZ report and a new interview by Shaunie O’Neal, Royce will likely be replaced on the third season. Though the second season is still airing on VH1, the network alongside Shaunie are already looking ahead.

Sources tell TMZ that Royce is on the chopping block because of her ongoing legal battle with her Orlando Magic baby daddy Dwight Howard. See, Dwight got a gag order on Royce back in 2009, thus prohibiting her from talking about Dwight or their son in the media or on the TV show. This is the reason Royce’s son has never appeared on the show.

And in a recent phone interview, Shaunie, who is also an executive producer on the show, echoes the same sentiment. “Royce is not guaranteed to come back for Season 3. We are really trying to come up with something else and she’s aware of it,” said Shaunie.

“Season 1 we establish [Royce] as Dwight Howard’s ex-girlfriend and mother of his son. Season 2, she’s now dating again, or dating other people that she seems to be pretty serious with,” Shaunie added. “And she can’t talk about her son, she can’t talk about Dwight, and it’s no connection any more, and the legal part of it has almost gotten more strict.”

So how does Royce feel about being on the chopping block? She tells TMZ she has other options, adding, “If they are indeed searching for a replacement for me it is what it is. It all seems petty and immature to me.”

Following a one week hiatus and news that Jennifer Williams will be filing for divorce, Basketball Wives returns tonight with an all new dramatic episode!

On the 8th episode this season, the ladies travel to Madrid, but Royce’s phantom illness and Tami’s mood swings put a damper on the festivities. Meanwhile, a man catches Jen’s eye, and the ladies overindulge on the local feed.

In other Basketball Wives news, NFL player and DWTS alum Chad Ochocinco is finally opening up about his engagement to Evelyn Lozada and based on his comments, it’s safe to assume these two crazy kids will not be tying the knot anytime soon.

If you recall, Evelyn announced the engagement via twitter back in November and according to Chad, it isn’t all sunshine and roses for the duo. “To be honest, we bump heads. Like, the personalities,” Chad told Entertainment Tonight.

“I can put my foot down but I’m trying to let her feel like she wears the pants. That’s what you’ve got to do sometimes. You’ve got to reverse it,” said Chad going on to add that Evelyn controls his finances. “The thing is, I can’t even spend it, man. Don’t get engaged man, don’t get engaged. She done put a stop to all the spending and all the having fun and I’m on a budget every month now and it’s frustrating because that wild side and that fun Chad is going away. I’m so businesslike because of that other half.”

So are there any wedding plans on the horizon? “I haven’t made wedding plans. Right now, I’m still in the stage of trying to make sure we’re on the same page before we [take that step], you know?” confesses Chad.

Here’s to hoping this won’t be another 10-year engagement for Eve.

A new report by Life & Style magazine today is now confirming that Jennifer Williams will indeed be filing for a divorce.

According to the magazine, things are officially over between the Basketball Wives star and her husband of 3 years, former NBA player Eric Williams. The short marriage between the couple had been plagued with numerous cheating allegations and a possible love child.

“I plan on filing for divorce in the next couple of weeks. It’s a new year and I just want to put this behind me,” Jennifer tells Life & Style. “He doesn’t know exactly when I’m going to do it. He’s just waiting for me to pull the trigger.”

Jennifer adds that it was never her intention to give up on the marriage despite Eric admitting to cheating with other women. “I really wanted it to work and believed he would change. This whole lifestyle is dysfunctional; it’s not a typical marriage. The bad just started to outweigh the good,” says Jennifer, also addressing the reports that came out last summer that Eric had a love child. “I wasn’t distraught about it, but I really felt bad for the child.”

So what are Jennifer’s plans following the divorce? “I just want to live comfortably and move on, get it over with,” she said. “I definitely will not put up with this type of behavior ever again!” Photos of Jen and Eric in happier times below.
