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’Neal tweeted 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 finally, it seems there is still hope for the marriage of Jennier Williams and her husband Eric Williams. For starters, despite all the public declarations and threats of divorce, Jennifer has still yet to file.
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!
