Can you believe 2013 is almost over already? Before we head off into 2014, see which of your favorite reality TV stars are celebrating a birthday in December! The list includes expectant Basketball Wivesstar Evelyn Lozada and more. See the gallery below for the photos, too!
Evelyn, 36, is still keeping her baby daddy's identity under wraps, at least until one of her friends sells the scoop to a gossip site, but she did confirm that baby #2 is on the way. “I am so excited to announce a wonderful blessing — I’m pregnant!"
Sources close to the Basketball Wives star shared her baby news with TMZ this morning. Evelyn is already six months along! Nobody is spilling the name of the baby's father just yet, but I'm sure it won't be long until he's revealed. TMZ assures us that it's NOT Chad Johnson.
The reality star is already mom to daughter Shaniece, 20.
This explains why she hasn't been sharing too many selfies lately… Kudos to her for keeping this under wraps for so long! That's not an easy feat nowadays!
You know who needs to stop talking for a little bit? Wendy Williams, In fact, I feel kind of badly talking about her and giving her more attention, but her latest shenanigans need to be addressed. Domestic violence knows no boundaries, be it social, economic, or age, and we're all often guilty of blaming the victim…or doubting their recollection of events. I'm not saying that every woman who has claimed to be abused actually was, but on the flip side, do I want to be the one who makes that call? No. If someone's life is so sad that they feel the need to make false accusations, they don't need my judgment.
That said, just because someone is a person we like to snark on or seems generally horrible to be around, doesn't mean that they deserve to have someone put their hands on them. We all love to hate the often violent Evelyn Lozada, but her attitude doesn't warrant her ex-husband's behavior towards her any more than we excuse her behavior towards past co-stars. Sorry, that was a lot to get off my chest, but with the recent news of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer suffering abuse at the hand of her boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos, Wendy Williams has felt the need to put in her two cents…and to her, Camille's story sounds "sketchy." Geez.
Plagued with really lackluster ratings this season and several cast members looking to quit, Basketball Wives is desperately floundering.
The fifth season was all about Evelyn Lozada's marital breakdown from Chad Johnson and Tami Roman changing her image. Kind of. With the season ending, producers approached the ladies about filming the reunion, but Evelyn reportedly balked! Sources say she is sick of discussing her very brief albeit disastrous marriage, plus she's not getting along with any of her castmates and is scared of secrets they may spill!
Sources tell TMZ VH1 then decided to cancel the whole reunion after Evelyn refused to cooperate and filming will not be rescheduled. The other wives just have nothing exciting going on and have nothing to talk about so without Evelyn's drama there basically is no point. Producers felt there simply wasn't enough material.
Well, last week's episode of positivity and good times quickly fell by the wayside, didn't it? On last night's season finale of Basketball Wives, Suzie Ketcham certainly went out with a bang, while Tami Roman made sure to stir the pot behind the scenes.Shaunie O'Neal has perfected her appalled look when dishware is thrown, and Evelyn Lozada manages to shed just a few more tears.
The ladies decide to have a quiet night in on their last night in London. The women are showering Evelyn with praise over a fashion show well done, and they unanimously decide it's hands down the best girls trip they've taken for the show. Given that no one left in the middle of the night or had dead fish hidden in their suitcase, I'd say it was a screaming success.
Back in Los Angeles (where do these ladies live?), Evelyn, Tami, Suzie, and Shaunie are bowling. Tami decides its the perfect time to tell her friends about Kenya Bell's phone call and invitation to see her perform. They find it humorous that Kenya claims to have turned over a new leaf. Tami describes her "Hate Me" song, and Suzie's eyes immediately turn to daggers. The ladies are shocked to learn that her song is about one of them, and they narrow it down to either being a "tribute" to Suzie or Evelyn. Oh hell no! It had better not be about Evelyn! Suzie checks out the lyrics on the Internet, and Evelyn accuses her of being so high school. She would know, right?
Hmmm…this season of Basketball Wives has somehow seemed shorter than most–not that I'm complaining, mind you! Perhaps there just wasn't enough footage of craziness to make it last longer given the fact that Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman were trying to revamp their violent images via tear and nail polish respectively.
Tonight is the show's season finale, and it seems producers filmed a little smack down between Suzie Ketcham and former cast mate Kenya Bell. While it's not table jumping or wine bottle hurling stuff (thankfully), it seems that Suzie has graduated from hat swatting to full on hair pulling.
Of course none of this would be possible if Tami hadn't decided to stir the pot and invite the women to Kenya's performance. Personally, I am over this set of women, but I can't decide if their drama-fueled antics made them at least more entertaining to watch. It's official…I am definitely part of the problem!

London, I wish I could have apologized in advance for sending you the women of Basketball Wives. Oddly enough,Tasha Marbury and Suzie Ketcham manage to play nice, while Tami Roman remains in a zen-like state for the majority of the episode. Shaunie O'Neal seems more into sightseeing with her boy toy than stirring the pot, and Evelyn Lozada is ready to debut her line…because she'd like to see it, too. Wow, London! I'd say you lucked out…for now!
The women arrive across the pond, and Evelyn hopes that everyone is excited for her Vida Lux fashion show. She's a tad nervous though because she hasn't seen the dresses that will be going down the runway. Check that, she's a tad nervous so she is refusing to look at the dresses beforehand because she doesn't want to get stressed out if they aren't what she'd hoped. Perhaps she and Alexis Bellino should tryout together for the next Project Runway. #designer?? #bwhahaha
Suzie is concerned that the strippers in England aren't getting enough Vitamin C due to the lack of sun exposure. Tasha wonders aloud if Suzie forgot to take her meds the day of the hat swatting. Tasha refuses to acknowledge Suzie but for passive aggressive comments, and Tami wishes (for once) that everyone could just get along.
