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!

I don't know about you, but I'm starting to get curious about the new season of Basketball Wives. The show's mean girls are promising left and right that things will change from the bottle-throwing, hair pulling, dark tone of the last few seasons, but I just don't believe it.
Evelyn Lozada is now the one who is touting big changes in her behavior, while reminding everyone of what she suffered in her short marriage to Chad Johnson. She vows she wants to be someone of whom her daughter can be proud, and she certainly doesn't want any younger fans emulating her violent ways. Evelyn wants to set a positive example.
Yap, yap, yap. Yada, yada, yada. Woh woh, woh woh (in my best Peanuts teacher voice). Lather, rinse, repeat. If we've heard it once, we've heard it a thousand times…except in this case, we actually have heard it a thousand times. Basketball Wives creator and star Shaunie O'Neal is sick of the violence, bullying, and all-around hateful tone the show has taken since…well, since its inception. She's wants to prove to fans that her ladies can conduct themselves with class and dignity. This should be good!
Speaking to The Grio, Shaunie wants viewers to know that the ladies are working hard to get away from past bad behavior. She tells the site, “For the most part, I think people were trying to do better, making an effort. I think that’s what’s most important. The effort is being made."
However, she does admit, “It’s not that we did a 360, that we’re coming in brand new and angels. Trust me, there are some moments." I don't doubt that for a minute. You can put lipstick on a pig, but…
Just in case you were wondering, Basketball Wives' volatile star Evelyn Lozada still enjoys talking to the media. I realize it's been a few weeks, so you were likely worried that she'd fallen off the face of the earth. Fear not, she's still here, and she's got a lot to say.
Evelyn dishes on her desire for a husband and more kids, her complicated relationship with former spouse Chad Johnson Ochocinco Johnson, and all of her latest business ventures. While she's clearly super busy, Evelyn still has time to say "Cheerio" to her fans across the pond while attending London Fashion Week. Hey, it's beats throwing wine bottles at people, right?
There are some crazy people in this world…and even reality stars aren't immune to the insanity. Of course, when you think about it, the women on Basketball Wives are slightly off their rockers, so it's a tad ironic that the crazy is affecting them. This time around, new cast member Tasha Marbury is being harrassed by a woman who claims to have had an affair with her husband. The only problem is that Stephon Marbury has never met the lady.
Tasha isn't the only one who is being affected by some negaitve energy. Former BBW star Chad Ochocinco Johnson has also fallen on even harder times (who would have thought that was possible?) of the coconut water variety. It doesn't get much worse than that, does it?
Before anyone jumps to conclusions about the above photo it seems that looks can be deceiving. Maybe. Or maybe not.
Evelyn Lozada andChad Johnson have the unique distinction of having the most ridiculous engagement and shortest marriage in reality TV history.
Last night theBasketball Wives couple was spotted at a dinner together smiling and looking friendly! One photo even captured them holding hands. Say what? In response the blogs jumped on the 'Evelyn and Chad are back together!' bandwagon. Which is just the publicity Evelyn was looking for.
Evelyn quickly (like quicker than she divorced) took to her blog to set the record straight. "It seems as though things have gotten a wee bit out of control," she began.
Back in September Chad was officially charged with battery after head-butting Evelynduring a fight in August and was ordered to have no contact with her. Even though they continued to Twitter stalk each other, they obviously have a desire to speak face to face. The judge granted Evelyn's request after she made it clear that she is no longer afraid that Chad will harm her.
TELL US – ARE THESE TWO GETTING BACK TOGETHER? OR WILL THEY JUST BE FRIENDS? DO YOU EVER WANT TO SEE THE EPISODES OF 'EV & OCHO' AIRED?
I'm sorry, but I'm kind of at a loss for words with this one. People aren't really this stupid are they? I mean, Chad Ochocinco Johnson found another idiot to date him? What gives with these women? Not only does Chad have a new girlfriend, but he apparently wants to marry her AND she's feuding with his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada on Twitter. Okay, so maybe that last part isn't all that shocking.
Given that Chad and Evelyn met on Twitter, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that they are both still lurking in one another's Twitter feeds. However, given the fact that the world watched how Chad treated Evelyn on Basketball Wives, then saw their marriage crumble after an alleged head butt, it's a wonder that anyone would want to get mixed up with either of these two. Add in Chad's serial cheating and both of their penchants for violence, and any sane person should be staying as far away from them as possible!
