Evelyn Lozada

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!

ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT SEASON FOUR? SURPRISED TO SEE EVELYN RETURNING? WHAT DO YOU GATHER FROM EVELYN AND JENN’S TWEETS?

With the first season of Basketball Wives: L.A. coming to a close this evening, the gossip behind the original Basketball Wives is ramping up with new ladies, new drama and perhaps a new spin-off for one of the cast mates that swore up and down she was quitting the show.

As you recall, Evelyn Lozada announced she would not be returning to the VH1 hit after the network’s blog posted a story about her hooking up with Terrell Owens. Now, normally that wouldn’t be such a big deal for a woman whose professional life involves pursuing professional athletes, but T.O. happens the be the bestie of Evelyn’s fiancé Chad Ochocinco. However, TMZ is reporting that it wasn’t all that difficult to lure Evelyn back into the spotlight. All it took was more money, more flexibility in her filming schedule, and oh… her own show, of course!

Insiders are revealing that Evelyn not only received a raise to return to the show, but she is also getting to call the shots. Sources say Evelyn is choosing to film around her daughter’s school schedule and not miss any of Chad’s games due to being followed around by those pesky cameras.

Not surprisingly, the icing on the cake is that Evelyn and Chad will get their own show which will film the events leading up to the couple’s nuptials. There is no word yet as to whether the actual wedding will be documented on the spin-off, but I’m sure making that happen will be as simple as Evelyn threatening (via Twitter, of course!) to quit that show.

Meanwhile, Evelyn’s cast mates Tami Roman and Shaunie O’Neal are also discussing the upcoming season. According to Tami, the ladies of Miami spent several weeks filming in New York before returning south. Also intriguing is the ladies’ confirmation of two new cast members. Does Meeka Claxton’s fate not serve as a warning to these women? Echoing what must be the sentiments of all the show’s fans, Tami admits, “I’m still surprised at how many people just wanna come into this situation. They should know by now we are not wrapped too tight. But they still keep coming.”

Shaunie is equally unapologetic to the new girls. She states that so much drama goes on with the original ladies during the off-season, that when filming begins, the newbies “just walk into the danger zone.” She adds a passive aggressive “sorry” because that will certainly make the new cast mates feel better! Regardless, and true to the show’s form, Tami promises, “It will be epic, trust me.” I certainly have no doubt about that!

Indeed as TMZ reveals the identities of the two new cast members! Pictured top middle is Kesha Ni’cole Nichols – most notorious for being dumped by NBA player Richard Jefferson back in 2009 via email, a day before their $2 million wedding!

The other newbie is Kenya Bell, who was arrested earlier this year for allegedly trying to stab her NBA husband Charlie Bell. Kesha is reportedly getting along with all the veteran cast members while Kenya is said to be butting heads with them. I wonder why!

Also (hopefully!) epic will be tonight’s conclusion of the Basketball Wives L.A. reunion. John Salley continues to drop the ball mediate as the women go back and forth with Jackie Christie. Here’s hoping some good dirt comes out, but I for one won’t be holding my breath! The episode airs tonight at 8PM ET on VH1. Watch a preview clip below!

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT EVELYN RETURNING FOR ANOTHER SEASON? WILL YOU WATCH HER SPIN-OFF WITH CHAD? THOUGHTS ON THE NEW CAST MEMBERS? WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO SEE ON TONIGHT’S L.A. REUNION?

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.

WILL YOU BE READING EVELYN’S NEW BOOK SERIES? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE IS FEUDING WITH JENNIFER WILLIAMS?

It appears there are some pretty nasty rumors swirling about one of the ladies of Basketball Wives LA, and it seems VH1′s editing department is performing quite the cover-up should the accusations prove to be true. And if the rumors aren’t true, you can always sue the source…just ask Miami’s Evelyn Lozada!

Um, perhaps the apology we saw Draya Michele give Laura Govan on last week’s episode of Basketball Wives LA may not have been for simply talking some smack years ago. Reach Around Radio exclusively reports that Draya may have gotten a little too close with Laura’s baby daddy 4x Gilbert Arenas…at the stadium no less. Apparently VH1 used it’s editing magic to make it appear Draya was saying she was sorry for gossiping about Laura and her children when she she was actually apologizing for bopping Laura’s man.

Reach Around Radio reports Gilbert is not denying these allegations. In fact, he claims that he even passed off Draya to a couple of friends, including Deshawn Stevenson. Classy. The radio hosts reveal that Gilbert may even be airing this dirty laundry on the reunion. If this story is true, you have to wonder why VH1 is skewing the program to make Draya seem like the ultimate victim. I am in no way saying that the women have any right to gang up on or bully any other cast mate. However, if Draya is guilty of diddling one of the other lady’s meal tickets, it’s a bit more understandable why she would be negatively on their radar. If this story is false, Draya may have quite the defamation claim…

And speaking of lawsuits, Miami Basketball Wife football fiancee Evelyn Lozada is suing internet site Media Take Out for publishing a story in September which questioned her fidelity to fiancee Chad Ochocinco. Well, it didn’t actually question her fidelity…it flat out called her a cheater. The article, entitled “Evelyn Lozada from the Basketball Wives was CREEPING… with one of Chad’s BALLER FRIENDS!!! (Explosive Details),” accused the reality starlet of sleeping with her man’s best friend (and fellow VH1 media whore darling) Terrell Owens.

Evelyn’s lawsuit alleges that over 250,000 readers viewed the article causing her “emotion distress” (huh?) and damaging her reputation as both a career woman and a public figure/”television personality.” Evelyn is seeking $15,000 in damages, as well as additional money for court costs and interest. The article is still available on the site, but now simply reads, “As a courtesy to Evelyn, we have removed this article.” Well wasn’t that kind of them…

A new episode of Basketball Wives: L.A. airs tonight at 8PM ET on VH1.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST DRAYA? DOES THIS CHANGE YOUR OPINION OF HER ON THE SHOW? DO YOU THINK EVELYN HAS A CASE AGAINST MEDIA TAKEOUT OR IS THIS JUST AN ATTEMPT TO STAY RELEVANT?

Basketball Wives: L.A. is anything but a quiet walk in the park. Viewers haven’t seen Kimsha Artest since the second episode, and sisters Gloria Govan and Laura Govan are always at the center of the show’s ever-stewing drama. Below, all three ladies discuss their stake in the show.

The Govan sisters, who are still very much in the drama on the show, are dishing as to what is yet to come this season. In an interview with HollywoodLife, Gloria Govan discusses her relationship with fiance and L.A. Laker Matt Barnes, while her sister Laura teases about what’s happening in later episodes.

Gloria explains her love of Matt, saying, “A lot of people assume my relationship is perfect, although I don’t ever recall [claiming it is]. You get a great 3D view of our relationship this season. You’ll see us going to therapy. I think a lot of people will be surprised and confused, but that’s where our relationship was.”

REPORTER SAYS DRAYA LIED ABOUT POLICE REPORT!

She also discusses bringing the controversial Draya Michele into the group, a groupie jump-off lady Laura Govan isn’t going to be biffles with any time soon. Gloria elaborates, “I kind of feel like with Draya it’s sleeping with the enemy. I feel like she has potential to be a really cool person, if she got her priorities straight. She’s not someone I would call to go to lunch, but I don’t want to body slam her.” Well, that’s kind of nice, right?

Laura agrees, asserting, “You’re going to get surprised. It’s almost like a Lifetime movie. You’re going to be like, ‘What the hell?’ You’re going to be like, ‘Laura’s so shady.’” Who thinks that? Everyone? Laura reveals, “You’ll go through a couple weeks when you think everyone’s crazy. Then its all going to come full circle.” She also wants viewers to know it’s not all about cage-boxing and cat fights. She says, “I do want to get some key things out — like, we run foundations. We do things for shelters. Besides all the drama, there are a lot of things we do do as women.”

Laura continues, “I wasn’t on this show to be famous. I wasn’t trying to win an Oscar. I’m not sure if I’d do a second season if asked.” Well, there’s good news…she’s not expecting an Academy Award for her work on this reality show. Further, I’m glad to see she’s taking a page from the Bravo Housewives play book and saying she may not want to do another season. If she’s not asked back, it will be imperative she has these statements printed so it doesn’t look like she was fired.

Gloria, on the other hand, isn’t going anywhere if season two is a go. She exclaims, “I hope we get offered another season. I would jump on the opportunity.”

Bad editing or drama-avoiding no-show? If you’ve been following the craziness behind Basketball Wives: L.A.’s Kimsha Artest’s absence from recent episodes, the viewers may finally have a resolution. While stories swirled that Kimsha had gotten the freeze-out from producers, she is now insisting that she didn’t get cut out of the show. Instead, she maintains that she took herself out of the drama because she didn’t want to be associated with such cattiness.

In an interview with BlackSportsOnline, Kimsha explains, “I don’t want to be affiliated with the shenanigans, the drama, the back and forth…it’s uncalled for, it’s childish, and it’s just not me.” She goes on to explain the fake Facebook fallout, stating, “Anybody who read that could have known that’s not me. Period.” As for legal ramifications with the faux page, Kimsha continues, “We’ll definitely figure out who it is. I’ve got a good idea, but I ain’t gonna blow them up just yet.” When asked if there is any truth as to the rumored beef with her and Miami’s Shaunie O’Neal and Evelyn Lozada, Kimsha replies, “I don’t know Shaunie. I don’t know Evelyn. What beef?”

The producers of the VH1 spin-off seem to be on the same page, relaying that Kimsha wasn’t edited from the show, instead she just stopped showing up to film. While the show’s creators may not agree with how Artest left, they are corroborating her side of the story. The producers issued a statement saying, “When Kimsha Artest signed on to be in ‘Basketball Wives: LA,’ we were very excited to have her onboard. That is why we were confused and disheartened when after a limited number of days shooting she stopped showing up for filming. This is the sole and only reason Kimsha has not appeared on more episodes of the series. Her minimal coverage on the show was entirely her decision and not that of Shed Media, VH1 or Executive Producer Shaunie O’Neal. ‘Basketball Wives: LA’ continues to be a ratings success for VH1 every Monday night.”

Now that we’ve solved the mystery of the absent cast member, a new episode of Basketball Wives: L.A. (sans Kimsha) airs tonight at 8PM ET on VH1.
