The episode starts out with Royce meeting Ashley and Suzie for breakfast to fill Ashley in on the ‘altercation’ she got into with Evelyn because Royce isn’t ghetto but she is hood. Suzie is suddenly seeing things from Evelyn and Jen’s perspective and encourages Royce to stop causing drama because she wants everyone to hold hands and skip through rainbows and just be friends! My have the tables turned from last season… Royce reveals exactly why she is sick of Evelyn – and it has to do with, ahem, how Evelyn being a ho… allegedly of course.
Evelyn and Jen have a relaxing spa day where using their ‘we’re so classy’ hush-hush voices they talk about how ho-ish Royce is and complain about her tweeting Eric. The conversation rapidly escalates into why Royce has a different boyfriend every other month. Wait – so dating is wrong according to these two? Evelyn decides Royce can’t call her a ho because she is one too – so, HA!

The VH1 reality star recently announced her plans to pen and release a series of books called “The Wives Association.” So will these books be tell-alls? That answer is a no and yes as Evelyn, 34, reveals it will be a series of novels which will fictionalized based on some of her own experiences of being involved with a professional athlete (she dated NBA player Antoine Walker for 10 years).
The novel’s main character will be Evelyn’s alter ego, Eve Inez-Landon. “I have a bunch of journals from when I was in my previous relationship and I would write down everything that was going on of how I felt, or what was going on in my life,” said Evelyn to EUR Web. “And then when I started moving out, I found these journals and I started reading them. And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, this is crazy – everything that I went through!’”
Evelyn adds that the stories will also include that of other athlete wives and girlfriends. “I have a lot of girlfriends that were married, and still married to a lot of these players. And the stories you hear – what goes on with the staff, and just living in that circle – I don’t think anybody can relate unless you live in it. So I figure why not come out and make a juicy book about it,” said Evelyn.
In other news, following the dramatic showdown on the last episode of Basketball Wives, Jennifer Williams is now talking about her relationship, or lack there of, with costar Royce Reed, mostly Royce’s decision to keep in touch with her ex Eric Williams on the twitter.
“I felt like she just stabbed me in the back,” said Jennifer to the HollywoodLife. “I was disappointed that she would even stoop that low. There are just certain codes that people need to respect and that’s one of them. It’s inappropriate.”
“I think it’s just girlfriends 101 — there are certain things you don’t do,” continued Jennifer. “I don’t think she would appreciate if I was doing that to one of her exes. I was just trying to get her to see the point.”
As for Evelyn’s violent reaction to Royce during the sitdown, Jennifer states Evelyn was just trying to defend her. “Sometimes talking to her [Royce] — it goes in one ear and out the other. She basically didn’t get it,” said Jennifer. “Evelyn was just defending me and it kind of took on a life of it’s own. So then they started arguing. And then Evelyn just picked up the drink and threw it at her. It got crazy.”
A new episode of the Basketball Wives airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c!

Following last week’s dramatic premiere, the latest episode of Basketball Wiveswas more on the mellow end, or more accurately the calm before the storm. This week, we discover Suzie has no back bone, Meeka is might be two-faced, Tami is NOT a fan of the hand or Meeka, Jennifer wants to get her groove back, Evelyn’s solution to every problem is to get laid (preferably to a younger bloke), and also Shaunie has no storyline this season!
The episode begins with Jennifer and Tami catching up at Jen’s place, as Jennifer takes a break from being Evelyn’s shadow. Though I’m a tad surprised to see her breaking bread with Evelyn’s enemy. Tami brings up the t-shirt and lawsuit drama, while Jen tries to stay neutral on the issue.
Circle outcasts Royce and Suzie meet up to gossip grab a bite. The topic of convo is Jen’s ex Eric and Royce reveals she still keeps in touch with him via the twitter and it shouldn’t be a problem for Jen. The topic then turns to Evelyn and Royce wastes no time in trashing her. “I can change my hair. I can change my clothes. But she can’t change the fact that she’s a ho.” Ouch! When it comes to Jennifer, Royce and Suzie agree that she is “cool” when she’s not stuck up Evelyn’s butt. Err the jury is still out on that one.

The Basketball Wives are back this season, and oh boy, as the drama picks up right where they left off from the reunion show!
The episode begins with the mean girl cliqueEvelyn and Shaunie paying Jennifer a visit. After threatening to leave husband Eric for what seems like the past 2 decades, it seems Jennifer finally made good on her promise! Oh never mind, as Jennifer reveals it was Eric who actually kicked her out of the condo they shared by putting it up for sale.
Jennifer, who is one sneeze away from experiencing a wardrobe malfunction, reveals she is very happy to be living on her own. “I’m just like a new person right now,” says Jen and what better way to celebrate the new Jen than with a divorce party! But wait, has she even filed yet? While the ladies continue their convo, sh*t stirrer Shaunie decides to bring up Tami, and Evelyn reveals there’s still a lot of bad blood. That tends to happen when you sleep with someone’s husband and then call them a “non muthaf*ckin’ factor.” Royce is brought up as well and as expected, they have yet to make up.
And speaking of Royce, who is now sporting a lighter mane, she is now single again after breaking up with what’s his face because they “didn’t mesh.” Firecracker Royce also reveals she hasn’t seen Evelyn in a minute but she is more than ready to box if they ever cross paths, or was it self defense? Oh well, whatever the case, we can expect a WWE match at some point!

TMZ is reporting today that after threatening to quit the show, Evelyn is officially signed on to return. What did it take to get her back on the show? A major increase in her salary by VH1 plus an apology from the show producers.
Evelyn had asked for $20,000 per episode but while she didn’t get that exact amount, her new salary will more than double the $7,500 per episode she was earning before.
TMZ adds that Evelyn also got an apology from producers of the show for the way she was portrayed on the season 2 finale. Though we’re not sure why the producers had to apologize when it was Evelyn herself who admitted to having slept with her costar Tami Roman’s ex-husband while they were still married.
Meanwhile, Shaunie O’Nealtweeted last week that filming had already began on the new season. “Taping all day for BBW season 3 today with my ladies @EvelynLozada and @iamjennifer. Hoping this season will be the best yet!,” tweeted Shaunie on March 27.
And in a recent radio interview, Eric admitted he is still in love with Jennifer and wants to stay married. “I love the woman. I’m still in love with that woman,” said Eric on the DJ Charlamagne show.
Eric added that despite the way things appeared on the show, he was genuinely fighting to save his marriage. “I didn’t want to get a divorce. I’m the one who’s tryin’ to make $h_t happen. It had been a year and a half I’d been tryin’ to. You feel me? Nobody don’t know that part,” said Eric. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out on the third season of the show!

For starters, TMZ reported last week that Evelyn gave the show producers an ultimatum to either pay her $20,000 an episode or she walks for good. Sources close to the production told TMZ that Evelyn and her costars currently pull in around $7,500 an episode.
And then just yesterday, TMZ reported that Evelyn is in talks with the E! network regarding a spinoff show with fiance Chad Ochocinco. Sources close to Evelyn reveal that E! approached her with the new offer as soon as they discovered she wanted to quit Basketball Wives.
As for the reason Evelyn wants to quit the show, she is reportedly very upset with the way the finale episode turned out and is blaming producers for instigating the fight between her and costar Tami Roman. Evelyn has yet to make a final decision but sources add that she and Chad are seriously entertaining the E! offer.
And speaking of Chad and Evelyn, the couple spoke to PEOPLE magazine during which they both stated they will not be rushing to the altar anytime soon.
“He has four kids. I have one. We want to be engaged for at least a year and enjoy our time with our children, and then we’re going to plan our wedding,” Evelyn told PEOPLE, adding that they would both like to have more children. “The more kids, the happier I am,” she said.
So how does Chad feel about the dramatic finale of Basketball Wives during which Evelyn admitted to having once slept with former NBA player Kenny Anderson, while he was still married to costar Tami? Chad revealed all is well because they don’t hide anything from each other.
“I know everything about her, so there are no surprises,” said Chad. “My grandma says, ‘Always marry your best friend, because your best friend will be able to tell you anything and not hide nothing.’ That’s one of the things I really like, which is one of the reasons why she’s wearing that ring.”
Evelyn added that she had a hard time dealing with the backlash from the show. “I was having a hard time [watching],” she said. “I have a lot of followers on Twitter, so everyone has an opinion on your life, and they think they know you. Some of the things they say are hurtful, but he made me keep it together. He’s very supportive with everything.”
