With the February 20 premiere of the 4th season of Basketball Wives just weeks away, here’s to hoping VH1 is still filming as the drama rages on for the show’s stars!
As it’s been widely reported, former BFFs Evelyn Lozada andJennifer Williamsare currently on the outs! It appears poor Jen might be out of the “circle” for good after Evelyn fired off a number of nasty tweets to her former bestie.
First, Evelyn tweeted: “So @iamjennifer thinks I’m MADD that’s she’s hanging out with @NeNeLeakes ??? Bitch pls! Interview coming soon…. #ItsOnContacts.” Evelyn then accused Jen of “running her mouth” to the press to remain relevant and accused her of being “insecure.” Yikes. Below are more of her tweets –
Yes, Evelyn’s fiance Chad Ochocinco had to step in and be the voice of reason. Not sure what this says about this union when ‘Ochocinco’ is the level headed one in the relationship!
As for Jen’s response, she pretty much stuck to retweeting some comments by her followers. Below is a screen shot –
If you recall, TMZ broke the news days ago that the producers of the show were putting together a very lucrative offer for her to join the cast. Well it seems Vanessa, who is said to have received $75 million in her recent divorce from Kobe Bryant, realized she has nothing to gain by aspiring to be the next Shaunie O’Neal!
According to the report by The Insider, a source with knowledge of the situation said, “No disrespect to the other ladies but ‘Basketball Wives’ just isn’t Vanessa’s style.”

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.

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!

So why did Evelyn have a change of heart? Well, apparently Chad had to do a lot of begging. Sources tell TMZ that Chad broke down last week and apologized. Chad reportedly told Evelyn he would do whatever it took to win her back and even suggested couple’s counseling for the two.
Evelyn is said to have agreed and the couple are now seeking help to work out their trust issues. So wait, does this mean Chad is pretty much acknowledging that he cheated? Because if he didn’t cheat, why would he be groveling and suggesting counseling???
Anyhoo, Evelyn also spoke out through her rep, telling TMZ: “The strain from both our busy schedules started to take a serious toll on our relationship. Yet after spending some much needed quality time together, Chad and I are in a good space.”
Okay then. Meanwhile, Evelyn’s costar Tami Romanposted a topless photo of herself this week on her Facebook page. The reason? It’s an anti-fur ad for PETA even though she’s not officially associated with PETA. Tami wrote: “Even though this ad was not done in affiliation with PETA, I hope to have the opportunity to work with them to further the cause of animal rights in the future.”
The mother of three tweeted bikini photos of her new slimmer body in a sexy leopard print Victoria’s Secret bathing suit! “Ok y’all this is the the winner for my St. Barths trip,” wrote Imani. The bikini photos of Imani are below!

The reason? Evelyn, star of VH1’s Basketball Wives, suspects her NFL fiancé Chad has been cheating on her! A professional athlete being unfaithful? You don’t say!
Sources tell TMZ that Evelyn recently confronted Chad after she became suspicious about his behavior a.k.a. suspecting him of cheating.
While Evelyn hasn’t “officially” cancelled the wedding the summer nuptials have now been put on hold. Even worse for Evelyn, she was set to start filming a spinoff show with Chad in three weeks, but that is also now up in the air.
As for Evelyn and Chad, they are both keeping mum about the TMZ report for the time being.
This news isn’t exactly shocking as many have predicted the famewhoring attention loving duo would never make it down the aisle.
Plus back in Nov. 2010, Chad’s ex-girlfriend Rubi Pazmino, who won his VH1 dating show that summer, told Reality Tea exclusively that Chad was seeing both Evelyn and her at the same time. Rubi revealed she told Evelyn about Chad’s two timing ways, but Evelyn still continued to see Chad. Rubi ended up breaking off her relationship with Chad and soon afterwards he proposed to Evelyn.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON EVELYN PUTTING OFF THE WEDDING? ARE YOU SURPRISED?
UPDATE – Chad is now denying he and Evelyn have split, though he is not denying the TMZ report that their wedding is currently on hold.
Just moments ago, a fan tweeted to Chad that they heard he and Evelyn had broken up. He responded, “Broke a lamp or headboard? Not a chance in hell kind madam.”
He then tweeted to Evelyn: “@EvelynLozada I get off 3:30 and please put gas in my Prius before you come to pick me up.” Evelyn responded to Chad tweeting, “KISS THE BABY.”
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 thatradio 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 originalBasketball 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?
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!
