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!
Please know that I don't take any allegations of domestic abuse lightly. It's serious and scary stuff, and no one deserves it, even if they've thrown plates and wine bottles at their co-stars. NO ONE should be in that position (including the co-star who was the target of the bottle!). I'm coming from a place of personal knowledge, so I do know that sometimes (not always) it takes two people to fight. However, when one party gets physical, all bets are off and it's not pretty. Plus, no matter what kind of crap one party can spew, words will never beat fists…which is why the fact that paper beats rock still baffles me to this day!
That said, whatever opinions I had of Evelyn (and, as you can imagine, they weren't pleasant) before the domestic abuse claims were thrown out the window once Chad admitted to wrongdoing. Both of them need help. However, it seems that instead of working on themselves, they both choose to let their drama play out on Twitter. Because that's okay. I have so much to say, but I'll refrain because I don't want to appear to be apathetic. They both need to hermit and keep their business out of the media. I hope that statement was PC enough!
