Are any of y’all watching Livin’ Lozada? I have to admit, I’m intrigued, but not intrigued enough to commit to programming my DVR. I got my fill of Evelyn Lozada on Basketball Wives, and while I wish her well, I just can’t swap the image of her charging barefoot across a table at the Kentucky Derby with her reveling in the calmer side of family life. Not saying she didn’t make a total and genuine transition, but fool me twice, shame on me!
Those of you who are tuning in are aware that Evelyn recently suffered a miscarriage, the aftermath of which was featured on her new OWN reality show. My heart goes out to her for her loss, as well as being open enough to share it with her fans. Hopefully her experience will help others facing the same tragedy.
Admit it. You knew she couldn’t stay away from the cameras for very long! Evelyn Lozada is back on the small screen, starring in a new series premiering July 11 on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN. Et tu, Oprah? Livin’ Lozada is being touted as a docu-series, which is basically the term all the cool networks are using these days when trying to promote yet another reality show that most certainly will not be wrought with baseless drama and fake story lines or senseless violence involving throwing bottles at co-stars’ heads and literally scaling dining tables in a single leap to attack a former friend. Who wants to watch that? No, seriously…who does? Bueller?
The controversial former Basketball Wives star is no stranger to the limelight even though her spin-off with ex-husband Chad Ochocinco Johnson didn’t last as long as their short marriage due to his domestic abuse. The new show promises a softer side of Evelyn. It will follow her relationship with her fiance, majillionaire Dodgers baseball star Carl Crawford while she juggles being a business woman and mother to twenty-two year old daughter Shaniece and one year old son Carl Leo…who is the most precious child ever, by the way!

No, she’s not going to be on yet another reality show…although never say never! After all, she’s a veteran of the Real World and Celebrity Wife Swap (she and her beau were featured last month), just to name a few! Tami is expecting her first child with boyfriend Reggie Youngblood. She has two older daughters, Jazz and Lyric, from her previous marriage to NBA star Kenny Anderson. This will be Reggie’s first child.
“Viewers have been privy to every part of the couple’s relationship over the years as they became parents, dealt with Mendeecees‘s incarceration, the challenges of their subsequent separation, and eventually, his conditional release,” shared VH1. “Now, VH1 invites fans to be present for the happiest day of Mendeecees and Yandy‘s lives as they join together in holy matrimony.“
Now, Draya claims that she was simply too sick to host the even at Penthouse Nightclub. She also says she called the club owner with plenty of notice and told him that she would not be able to make it. The owner then threatened to trash Draya in the media. Sounds simple enough, right?
Well, a hostess for the club has a whole different story of what actually happened….
Ahhh, the rite of passage known as one's twenty-first birthday. I remember mine fondly. After all, it was just a couple decades years ago (around the same time Evelyn Lozada celebrated hers). I had a Spanish final exam the morning of my birthday, so none of that hitting the bars at the stroke of midnight the night before…oh no, I just had to start the festivities at lunch on the big day. And talk about stylish! I was sporting a turtleneck, Pilgrim shoes, and high-waisted jeans (how they are making a second round in fashion is beyond me), and damn did I look good as I hit up all the classiest joints Clemson had to offer in the late '90s. I'd say my twenty-first birthday was almost–ALMOST–as over-the-top as Evelyn's night out for daughter Shaniece Hairston…except I didn't get a Benz…and I still can't look at butterscotch Schnapps.
Over the weekend, Shaniece was treated to a major time in Vegas this past weekend courtesy of her mother's new fiance generosity. She was even gifted a Mercedes Benz G550. Every twenty-one-year-old should learn about the responsibilities of adulthood by driving a car worth well over $100K, right?
Evelyn revealed first photos of her son in a spread with OK magazine that debuted on Friday and then started posting a few pictures on Instagram over the weekend. All we can say is 'oh my god is he a cutie'!
Late February, Evelyn Lozada went on record to say she would get her body back within 60 days of giving birth. Well, love her or hate her, you have to give her credit for staying focused and making it happen.
Evelyn has lost a whopping 30 pounds since she gave birth to her son, Carl Leo, just seven weeks ago. She gained 42 pounds while pregnant.
Speaking to ABC News, the former Basketball Wives star said, "I'm proud of where I'm at so far. My body feels like it's almost back to normal."Evelyn has a right to feel proud – she looks great!
