Oh my. This is good. I mean, when I say this is good, y'all, this. Is. Good. It speaks volumes to the characters of the women from the original Basketball Wives. VOLUMES! As you know, Shaunie "Nostrils" O'Neal, after a face-saving attempt to seek counseling from her pastor at the end of last season to end the show's violent ways, is bringing back her two explosive, bullying best friends Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman.
Evelyn and Tami want to use the fifth season for redemption after all of their heinous behavior in seasons past. Well, they are off to a great start, I tell you! The two ladies are hoping to revamp their images, and Shaunie and Suzie "Both Sides of her Mouth" Ketcham are also along for the ride. Guess how the four ladies are planning to show that they've changed for the better?? Why, they're planning a walk out if they don't get their salaries hiked! They truly have changed.
Can I get a slow clap for Shaunie O'Neal? She said she was going to clean up the violence and drama on Basketball Wives, and by God, she's going to deliver. Oh wait. Nevermind. Instead, Ms. Nostrils O'Neal fired the calm ladies and kept her violent, bullying friends for the fifth season. They say they want to redeem themselves. I think Kenya Bell needs to duck!
That's right, folks! Both wine bottle tossing, table jumping Evelyn Lozada and purse snatching, in-your-face screaming Tami Roman will be back for another round. Apparently, they've "grown" in light of recent circumstances and deserve a fifth second chance. Tami suffered a mild heart attack, so she has a new lease on life, while Evelyn had a short-lived marriage that ended in a head butt from Chad Johnson, so surely she's learned that violence isn't the answer. Right? Hello? Anyone believe that?
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!
Evelyn Lozada has had a tough year. I mean the lady had one of the shortest marriages, like, ever – even shorter than Kim Kardashian's! With all the drama in her personal life the Basketball Wives star has turned to exercise and healthy eating.
Evelyn recently landed a huge, six-figure endorsement deal to promote an organic and caffeine free energy shot called youthH2O. And she's not stopping there! Apparently Evelyn (whose spinoff Ev and Ocho was canceled before it even aired) is planning for a life post-reality TV and she's decided the way to make bank is in the fitness market.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
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!
Oh Basketball Wives and Basketball Wives L.A., what would we do without you? From the ridiculous to the boring to the lunch meet-ups to the over-the-top crazy personalities, you both run the gamut. Here's a little dose of some BBW and BBW LA news to quench your thirst for some daily trash! I kid, I kid…for once news about these ladies (the originals, especially!) is relatively tame!
First up, Evelyn Lozada is a busy little beeotch! Not only has her private marital dramas played out in the public eye, she is working on several projects. I'm guessing she's trying to stay busy to keep her mind off of all her issues with soon-to-be-ex-husband Chad Ochocinco Johnson. We certainly can't blame her for that now, can we?
