Basketball Wives


The fourth season of Basketball Wives, original flavor will be airing next month and the ladies just want to remind us that they still don’t get along — specifically former besties Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada!

In a new interview with Sister2Sister, Jennifer talks the status of her relationship with Evelyn and what she believes is the real reason things fell apart in their friendship. Hint, hint — she goes “bloop!”

“Let me tell you what she’s mad over ‘cause this always comes up. She hates the fact that I’m really good friends with NeNe [Leakes], and she hates the fact that me and Mashonda are good friends,” Jennifer explains, alluding to Evelyn’s jealousy over her new-found friendships.

“NeNe is such a good person. I don’t think you really find a lot of people in the same business that you bond with because I feel like everyone is so competitive and everybody is so worried about the next person doing more than them, and it’s not like that with her at all,” Jen adds.

“She’s always trying to encourage me. She’s just always trying to uplift me, and I need people like that around me. I love that about her. There’s no jealousy. There’s no competition. We try to complement each other,” Jennifer shares. Wait… is she talking about the same NeNe we see on Real Housewives of Atlanta every week? That NeNe, queen of haterville? That NeNe?

“I feel like it’s all coming from a place of hurt, and she’s turning it into anger,” Jen reveals of Evelyn’s feelings. “Why do you care who I’m friends with? Like, that’s ridiculous. I live in New York. You live in Miami. I don’t care who you hang out with. I’m kinda over it because I just feel like I’m at a point at my life where I’m trying to get rid of negative energy.”

“To me, I feel like it’s something so minuscule. It’s not like I slept with Chad [Ochocinco]. It’s not something irreparable. It’s something stupid that you’re mad over. If you really are mad because I have other friends, I think that’s completely ridiculous.” So wow, that sounds pretty petty. I am sure we’ll get more information on the root of their friendship demise this season. At least I hope we do!

Evelyn, who is really not in a keeping her clothes on kinda mood lately, recently posed for Maxim. In the spread Evelyn is sporting various teeny-tiny lingerie ensembles. Just in case Chad has a wandering eye like his on-again, off-again fiancé sometimes suspects, these photos should remind him of what he has to lose!

“I was so thrilled and honored to shoot with Maxim magazine. This was one of the most professional and best shoots I’ve ever had and it was truly exhilarating!,” Evelyn said of her nearly-nude photo experience. You can check out Evelyn’s Maxim spread below!

Finally, to prepare us for the upcoming season and get us really, really excited, Tami Roman is dropping little hints on Twitter. “Season 4 BBW so many twists and turns! You guys aren’t going to believe what “TRUTHS” come to light. EPIC!,” she teases. She also reveals that she and Royce Reed had a fight, spilling, “Well Me & Royce fight, she kicks me in the shin LOL.” Yeah, you can put me in the category of people who cannot wait to see that showdown!

Basketball Wives Season 4 premiers February 20th (8/9c) on Vh1.

Shaunie O’Neal has turned being an ex-wife (or former girlfriend) of an NBA player into a new career and now that Vanessa Bryant is divorcing the uber famous Kobe Bryant that makes her a prime candidate for a certain VH1 show!

TMZ is reporting that the producers for Basketball Wives LA are hoping to score Vanessa for next season and sources reveal they are putting together an “extremely lucrative pitch for Vanessa,” in the hopes she’ll sell out her dignity for the chance to on-air tussle with the likes of Jackie Christie. According to insiders if Vanessa accepts the offer producers will be casting her in a lead role in the upcoming season!

Apparently, producers would have never asked Vanessa to the join the cast while she was still married to Kobe, but now that she is a free agent, so to speak, the door is wide open for her to stir up some major drama on the already insane show.

Rumors of Vanessa’s rather interesting behavior have been circulating the net for years and I’m sure many of the basketball wives have had first-hand experience with the controversial Vanessa! “Vanessa has more than enough storyline and would bring the show to another level,” a source explains.

Especially considering the details of why Vanessa’s marriage to Kobe ended! Many believe Kobe’s affair with Kim Kardashian‘s close friend, Carla DiBello was the final straw that pushed Vanessa to file!

Another reason producers have waited so long to approach Vanessa is budget constraints. Before the show was a breakout hit for Vh1 the budget was very tight —  which necessitated they hire desperate famewhores (ahem… Evelyn Lozada) and wives or girlfriends of less famous players. Now that the show is a hit, attracting a huge audience and branching out into different cities, they can attract women associated with big-name players!

Speaking of budget, Vanessa isn’t going to be counting her pennies anytime soon. New details of her divorce settlement are being leaked and I have to say she is taking the Ivana Trump route: “Don’t get mad, get everything!”

Vanessa is apparently scoring not one, not two, but THREE Newport Beach mansions in the divorce as well as an estimated $75 Million dollars — which is about half of their total assets. Remember, Vanessa and Kobe married when his career was just taking off and allegedly they do not have a pre-nup!

Sources close to the proceedings told TMZ the property settlement agreement has been signed and is official. Vanessa will retain control of the mansion the couple was living in prior to filing for divorce, the estate her mother is living in and the new estate the couple has been renovating for the past two years and has just been completed. No word on Kobe’s new digs!

If this true, Vanessa would definitely be a HUGE score for Basketball Wives L.A.!

DO YOU WANT TO SEE VANESSA ON BASKETBALL WIVES? DO YOU THINK SHE WILL SIGN ONTO THE SHOW?


Evelyn Lozada has been living the reality TV dream lately — the drama in her personal life is eclipsing the drama viewers see on TV! Evelyn is currently at odds with on-screen best friend Jennifer Williams and recently suspected her fiance of cheating, which entailed very publicly calling off their never-ending engagement.

Evelyn explained the status of things with Jen to TheYBF.com, and the two have definitely not made amends. “We’re currently filming so I can’t say but so much. But I think it’s out there that we’re not speaking. I will confirm that.”

“And she actually confirmed it in another interview. It’s stemming from last season, but you’ll see. You guys have to give me your opinion on that after — if you were in my positon how would you feel?”

Although producers like reality stars to keep most of the drama on screen, Evelyn reveals Jen and her tried to keep it classy and real by actually communicating off camera, but weren’t able to work things out. “I honestly thought [we were going to make it]. We actually had a conversation outside of filming, and I was like, things happen — you get caught up in interviews and whatever. But.. it wasn’t over.”

As for the other perilous relationship Evelyn is dealing with things are currently fine with off and on fiancé and accused cheater Chad Ochocinco. So fine that Evelyn has reconfirmed to several media outlets that the wedding is officially back on! The Basketball Wives star confessed to TMZ, “Sh*it happens and we worked it out.”

The couple is planning July nuptials for around 150 people, but Evelyn can’t decide if she wants to be Mrs. Ochocinco or not. Meaning she can’t decide if she should change her name or keep her own! I’m guessing the fact that Ochocinco is worth a lot more money than Lozado will factor into her decision, but I could be wrong!

Evelyn recently spoke to Power 106′s Big Boy Radio, where she shared the details of Chad’s proposal! Um… yeah, it’s um, it was very romantic, sort of like a business arrangement…

“People are always like, ‘Well did he get on his knee?’ and I was like I’m not going to lie It wasn’t that damn romantic. The [ring] guy came, we picked it out, he had his little earphones on then he started playing Call of Duty. And that’s what happened. I promise to God he did. That was it! He was like, ‘You like that? Okay, cool!’ He put on his headset and started shooting people up on the damn game,” Evelyn shared.

“He wanted to make sure I said yes. [The ring is] 10 carats. Flawless. I don’t know what the bill looked like,” she adds.

Since the most famewhoring couple of all-time needs a lot of attention, Evelyn and Chad recently posed for a series of racy photos to show off their tattoos for Urban Ink Magazine.

NecoleBitchie had the behind the scenes shot of the couple molesting each other for the lens. The photos, plus a video from the shoot are below!

With the fourth season of Basketball Wives beginning in just over a month the drama continues to ramp up between two ladies who were once thick as thieves. While rumors of a feud between Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada have been running rampant, both women have been publicly silent on any discourse. Jennifer is now breaking her silence as S2SMagazine.com recounts her recent radio interview. No, not that radio interview.

“As far as our friendship, yea, we are definitely not on speaking terms,” Jennifer admits to TT Torrez on the radio show. She also didn’t directly address gossip of a throw down between her and one time biffle Evelyn at Shaunie’s O’Neal’s Louis Vuitton bag studded birthday bash (literally!), stating simply,“I don’t think I can confirm or deny. I think anybody that has tuned into season 1 through 3 knows that I’m definitely not a fighter. That’s not even my character whatsoever. You definitely won’t find me fighting in Philippe Chow so I’m just going to leave it at that.” Well, she was pretty spot-on with tossing her drink on estranged husband — and amateur movie producer – Eric Williams.

Jenn is quick to acknowledge the rift between the former besties, who have been attached at the hip since the show began airing three seasons ago. She tells Torrez, “I don’t feel the need to put stuff on Twitter…but yea [Evelyn] threw a couple jabs at me on Twitter.” That darn Twitter… breaking up friendships one tweet at a time.

Jennifer, however, is living with an “it is what is” mantra, and she’s trying to focus on the positive, revealing, “I’m at a point in my life where I’m getting rid of all of the negative energy, including my soon-to-be ex. So, my thing is like, nobody’s exempt at this point. If you’re bringing some negative energy and drama into my life, I’m good.” It’s an excellent attitude, but I’ll be curious to see how it plays out when the show returns.

Speaking of the show, the new season premieres in February with two newbie “wives” Kesha Nichols and Kenya Bell. Kesha made headlines when she was the victim of runaway groom Richard Jefferson, while Kenya is in infamous for stabbing Charlie Bell, her NBA star ex (clearly!) husband. Of her new cast mates, Jenn isn’t judging past behavior (at least in this interview) stating that as far as she knows, “They seem cool.”

While things are pretty cold in the land of Evelyn and Jennifer, the reality star isn’t ruling out a potential reconciliation. Jenn says, “Anything is possible, to be honest with you. The whole reason why we’re not speaking, I think is really trivial. Honestly, I don’t have a problem with Evelyn. She has a problem with me.” Is it just me, or is sometimes taking the high road even more of a dig than sinking to your adversary’s level?

THOUGHTS ON JENNIFER’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE THE FORMER FRIENDS WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE AMENDS? IS JENN BEING TRYING TO BE THE BIGGER PERSON OR IS SHE JUST TRYING TO MAKE EVELYN LOOK EVEN WORSE? ARE YOU EXCITED TO SEE THE NEW LADIES?

Perhaps they should call it Basketball Wives: Law and Disorder! Two of the original Basketball Wives are on the receiving end of some pretty hefty-and ridiculous sounding-lawsuits.

TMZ.com is reporting that Evelyn Lozada is being sued for allegedly benefiting from hundreds of thousands of dollars funneled to her illegally from ex-fiancé and NBA All-Star Antoine Walker. Walker, who filed for bankruptcy last year, made $110 million from his NBA career… and that’s not counting the bank he pulled in from additional deals and endorsements. How does one person — actually, how do one hundred people — blow through that cash so quickly?

Walker’s bankruptcy trustee is questioning Lozada’s part in the whole situation because Antoine apparently gifted his ex-fiancé with $560,000 when he knew he was going broke. The trustee is claiming fraud regarding Walker’s money transfer to Evelyn, stating it was an attempt to conceal funds from his actual creditors. The trustee further accuses Evelyn of using that money to open her high end shoe store, Dulce, in Miami.

Evelyn is crying foul insisting that she knew nothing of Walker’s money troubles. She admits that Antoine gave her money to pay some bills, but she is adamant that Dulce was founded on proceeds from her engagement ring from Walker, not from the $560,000 that the trustee is trying to recover. Because that’s better, right? Regardless, Evelyn believes she is pretty safe from these recent allegations, and I can’t say I blame her. Sources close to Evelyn reveal she had no clue that her ex was in such financial trouble.

Also looking down the barrel of a lawsuit is Evelyn’s co-star and biffle Tami Roman. It seems that Tami has gotten herself into quite the hairy situation… pun intended.

The same site is highlighting another litigious timeline in which Tami requested some weave hair extensions from Constance Corleone (and no, she’s not the newest addition to Mob Wives) who is the owner of Bella Dream Hair. The suit claims that Constance was kind enough to gift Tami with some fake hair, and she was mortified to learn that Tami was starting a hair line of her own aptly called Curls By Roman.

The cusp of the altercation hinges on the fact that Tami advertised her line of faux hair with pictures of her wearing extensions from Bella Dream Hair. That’s some serious stuff, y’all! After the drama began, Tami issued a press release (who am I kidding?) tweeted, “Fraudulent people trying to take credit NOT. People trying to take credit for this hair. WTF they crazy.” Who needs legal representation when they are that eloquent?

TMZ.com reports that Constance is suing the diva for a mere $500,000 (chump change!) and she demanded Tami return the gifted hair. Tami responded, “Mad that I already mailed that S**T back2u cuz I got they address-would took it to Constance myself lying bitch.” It appears Tami is looking the gift hair in the scalp mouth!

DO YOU THINK EVELYN HAD ANY IDEA ANTIONE WAS IN SUCH DEBT?  SHOULD SHE BE RESPONSIBLE FOR REPAYING ALL THAT MONEY?  WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS ON THE LAWSUIT AGAINST TAMI?  DOES SHE OWE BELLA DREAM HAIR?


Happy, happy! Shaunie O’Neal recently celebrated her birthday complete with her cast mates, a ginormous Louis Vuitton cake… oh, and of course the Basketball Wives camera crew.

The soiree for Ms. O’Neal, who recently turned thirty-seven, was sponsored by Cicroc and took place at Phillipe on Ocean Drive in Miami. In attendance were all her closest friends, mean girls and clingers alike (I’m referring to you, Suzie Ketcham!). Celebrating with Shaunie were Tami Roman, newbie Kenya Bell as well as former biffles Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada. Noticeably absent were Royce Reed, who isn’t exactly Shaunie’s biggest fan (or vice versa) and the other new cast member Kesha Nichols.

Speaking of former friends who are usually attached at the hip, The Insider is reporting that the party wasn’t all fun and games for the ladies. A source reveals that Jenn and Evelyn, whose relationship has been fizzling since that fateful radio interview, got into a bit of an altercation at the party… which is perfect since it was being filmed for next season. Funny how that works out, right?

The witness reports that Evelyn and Jenn got into a heated “discussion” (read: fight) that culminated with Evelyn allegedly smacking Jenn with her fancy designer clutch. Wouldn’t it be hilarious if her weapon purse matched Shaunie’s birthday cake? The duel was apparently separated after continuing their verbal brawl, but I guess we’ll have to wait for the new season to see what actually transpired unless a wayward guest posts it to youtube.

After the incident, Tami and Shaunie tweeted one another, saying the party was “interesting and epic.” Not the kind of thing I’d post on Twitter if my birthday had been ruined by throw-down, but I guess I’m not looking for ratings either. :) It looks like we’ll have to wait patiently for February 2012 when the new season premieres to find out what really happened!

Photos from the fete are below!

VH1 has finally spilled the beans… the original Basketball Wives will be returning for a fourth season on the network. That is good to know, seeing as reports have been swarming about the cast filming in New York City before rounding out the season in Miami. And of course, VH1 is confirming two new cast members for the February 2012 premiere.

Meeka Claxton is out, but we will be welcoming back Shaunie O’Neal, Evelyn Lozada, Jennifer Williams and Tami Roman, the group otherwise known as the ‘popular girls’ (I wish I was making up this moniker), who will no doubt be creating waves. Also returning for the drama are the girls that can’t quite make it into the coveted (??) inner circle, Suzie Ketcham and Royce Reed.

Joining the party is Kesha Nichols whose fiance broke off their engagement mere hours before their wedding. Additionally, a more notorious newcomer will be on the show as well. Kenya Bell is described by VH1 as someone who “is in the process of finalizing a divorce from a basketball star and is one of the most notorious and controversial wives in the league.” The network also cites the juicy tidbit that Bell’s “infamous reputation is well known by the other wives.”

As for the veteran stars, the site promises that Royce and Suzie still “attempt to navigate uncharted waters as new chapters open in their lives.” Ooh, it sounds almost cryptic enough to get my attention! Tami begins to make her mark on the business world, while Shaunie focuses on continuing to stir the pot “establishing herself as a business mogul.” Yeah, that sounds riveting!

Of course, after Jenn’s radio interview last season in which she had less than stellar things to say about her bestie Evelyn’s engagement to Chad Ochocinco, their friendship has chilled considerably. The new season kicked off yesterday with a special photo shoot (the photos are below) and live video feed, complete with cast interviews on the show’s homepage.

Speaking of Jennelyn or Evennifer, whichever you prefer, the ladies may still be communicating even if they aren’t actually speaking in “real life.” Last week, Jenn tweeted her feelings with a passive aggressive sounding post that seems to imply that she has plenty of friends and doesn’t need Evelyn. I guess she no longer thinks she misses someone…

And back in September, things got ugly between the former BFFs on Twitter when Jen made a generic tweet that stated: “‘Hoes Be Winning.” Evelyn apparently thought the tweet was about her and went off on Jen. Evelyn’s tweets are below -

My circle of friends gets smaller and smaller & I love it. I don’t have time for part time fake friendships. Keep it moving!

#Youshouldbeembarassed that you are living a double life & no one knows who you really are #fake

I’m the last one to mess with when I know all of your business. #subtweet

I’m a ROTTWEILER & your a mutha f-n CHIHUAHUA. I will chew u up and spit u out. “Keep it moving” #TryMeIfYouWantTo

Shots are about to be FIRED. Lets go! Trust me, you won’t win boo!!!

Kind of sad when someone makes a tweet about “hoes” and you automatically assume it’s about you.

Finally, below are new behind-the-scenes photos of the BBW cast as they shot their new cast photos for season 4! Even in the photos, you can sense the tension between the ladies!

Move out of the way Danielle Stuab’s ex-lover/crime author extraordinaire! Watch out, Jackie Christie with your new tome! Make room on the bestseller list, Teresa Guidice! According to the Hollywood Reporter, there’s a new writer in town! Evelyn Lozada, famous for “dating” lots of professional athletes Basketball Wives has been signed by Cash Money Content (the publishing division of the Cash Money record label) to pen some “fictional” stories. The part of my heart that truly loves to write just died a wee bit.

Seeing as Evelyn is the ex-fiancé of the NBA’s Antione Walker and still claims to be current fiancé of New England Patriots football golden boy Chad Ochocinco, she probably has a lot of material for her first endeavor into the literary world. Evelyn’s first series (Yes, that’s right. Series. She’s not just starting with a single novel, girlfriend is going for the Sweet Valley High full on multiple book deal) is entitled The Wives Association. Sounds like fiction to me!

Evelyn will have a co-author (which must be code for “I’m famous so my name will be much bigger and more prominent on the cover, even though you’ll do all the writing co-author“) for the series. She will be writing with Courtney Parker, who has an actual literary resume which includes penning real novels and writing for Law & Order: Criminal Intent. The series will take inspiration from Evelyn’s real life with the main character being Eve Inez-Landon who has dated several professional athletes.

Discussing her foray into creative writing, Evelyn says, “The stories that you hear — what goes on in these relationships, and just being in that circle — I decided to let everyone experience a piece of it for themselves by writing this series of juicy novels.”

Cash Money Records has launched the careers of Lil’ Wayne and Nicki Minaj. The publishing side, Cash Money Content, was launched this past February. It has already released novels it hopes to develop into movies… and hopefully for Evelyn, her series will follow suit.

Evelyn explains, “By partnering with…Cash Money Content, we have the potential to turn these ‘novels’ into a full-fledged brand. Everything [Cash Money Content] touches turns to gold, and our brands together will be magical.” Will Eric Williams direct?

Speaking of Eric Williams, his ex-wife Jennifer Williams was attached to the hip with Evelyn during the past seasons of Basketball Wives. However, a source is telling Sister2Sister that the pals are on the outs evident by the fact that they no longer follow each other on Twitter.

Someone close to the former friends says that the two are no longer on speaking terms yet there is no reason cited for the recent state of their unfriendship. While both ladies have remained mum about the rift, the source believes the dreaded radio interview where Jen shared her true feeling for Chad likely had something to do with it.

The insider believes that Evelyn is hurt that her former bestie isn’t around for her wedding planning, and likewise, Jen doesn’t want to disrespect Evelyn by discussing the tiff. Thankfully (well, maybe not thankfully for Royce Reed), the source predicts the pair will be as close as ever by the time filming for Basketball Wives: Miami resumes.
