Jennifer Williams

In an all new interview, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada opens up about her relationship with fiance Chad Ochocinco, even revealing their wedding plans (hint- next summer). Evelyn also discusses costar Meeka’s lawsuit and her relationship with Jennifer today.

When it comes to her fiance Chad, Evelyn promises his surprising romantic gestures such as having dinner on the beach in a recent episode aren’t just for show. “He’s very spontaneous. He’s like that all the time; it wasn’t just for TV,” said Evelyn to Miami New Times. As for her wedding plans with Chad, Evelyn wouldn’t divulge much details though she did reveal it will take place “definitely next summer.” She adds that a newlywed types spin-off show is not out of the question.

Evelyn was also very vocal about Meeka Claxton’s lawsuit against Tami Roman for battery. “My honest opinion is that it is ridiculous. I think she is doing it for attention,” said Evelyn. “When you sign up for a show, you have to know that everything isn’t going to be peaches and cream. Not everyone is going to be BFFs. It’s a reality show. Fights are going to happen.” Apparently getting sucker punched in the face comes with the territory of doing the show.

And despite her past hangups with Tami, Evelyn makes it clear she is Team Tami. “After Tami and I got over our drama, we genuinely like each other. Our loyalty is with her,” she said. As for her friendship with Jennifer Williams, Evelyn reveals all is now well except that Chad and Jennifer are no longer speaking.

“It is awkward for me. We run into each other on South Beach and they don’t speak,” said Evelyn. “Chad doesn’t comment, but the fact we bumped into her one day at the movies on Mother’s Day and he didn’t speak says a lot without saying anything.” As we reported, the reunion show was taped just over a week ago and Evelyn tweeted pictures of the risque Herve Leger dress she wore. Those pics are below!

In other Basketball Wives news, TMZ is reporting Royce Reed suffered a seizure during a charity softball game on Saturday.

Sources reveal that after playing in the game and signing autographs for fans, Royce pulled a hamstring muscle and when she went to go sit down, she passed out.

Once Royce came to, she was surprised to hear she suffered a seizure as she stated she had never experienced one before. The paramedics were called though Royce declined to go to the hospital. The good news is Royce is however feeling fine today and told friends a combination of exhaustion, stress, the heat and her diet caused the episode.

A new episode of Basketball Wives airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7 and a preview clip is below!



On last night’s Basketball Wives, all hell broke loose between Tami and Meeka in a Roman nightclub, Jevelyn kissed and made up, and Suzie found herself stuck in the middle of things…and getting back in good with the mean popular girls because of it.

After the fight over Jen’s radio interview, Tami is able to break into Evelyn’s room. She’s lying in bed and Shaunie asks her to please talk to Jen and see how upset she is. Evelyn is indifferent to Jen’s teary apology, but she quickly warms as Jen’s waterworks turn on full force. Jen can see why Evelyn was upset, Evelyn hates to see her friend cry, and the two hug it out.

The group heads to dinner and Tami makes a huge ordeal about not wanting to sit next to Meeka. She then begins imitating Meeka with a forced whisper and Shaunie and Evelyn are stuck in high school as they can’t contain their giggles. When Meeka tells Tami to grow up (not smart, Meeka), Tami is not amused. Apparently, before the pair met, Meeka talked crap about Tami’s weave, and Tami thinks that is not okay coming from a transvestite Mary J. Blige. Mary J. Blige drag queens everywhere are understandably insulted. Tami and Meeka start arguing, and Evelyn tells the table what Meeka told her about Tami’s weave. Finally Meeka admits that her comment wasn’t necessarily nice, and Tami wants to know why she didn’t talk her weave trash to Tami’s face. Well, that’s easy! Tami’s weave looked good when Meeka finally met her. And the ladies think Meeka talks in circles. Please!


The upcoming episode of Basketball Wives is shaping up to be the most dramatic of the season.

Last week Evelyn Lozada confronted long time friend Jennifer Williams about some things she said in a radio interview.  Tonight everything comes to a head as Tami breaks into Evelyn’s hotel room so that Jennifer and Evelyn can hopefully make amends. Also Tami and Meeka get into a fist fight which might have led to Meeka quitting the show. But more on that later!

As for that infamous radio interview, Jen is still defending what she said. She tells Hollywood Life, “[E]verything I said in that interview, I have said before and to her face in Season Two.” Jennifer also discusses Evelyn’s reaction to the interview, and how she wishes that Evelyn had confronted her first, instead of allowing the drama to fester.

Jen says, “I also feel like all the talks with Noe, Shaunie and Tami were unnecessary. I have known Evelyn for over a decade and if she has an issue with me she should have come straight to me. Talking to a bunch of people only instigates things and when Evelyn gets mad she just lets it build, instead of dealing with it right away in a calm manner.”

While she stands behind her statements, Jen hopes this drama will not be the end of her friendship with Evelyn. She continues, “I do want to say that as a friend I would never do anything intentional to hurt anyone’s feelings. Evelyn and I have been through a lot and hopefully we will make it over this hurdle as well.”

Moving on to Tami Roman and Meeka Claxton as they have had a rocky relationship (if you could even call it that) all season, and Tami has been making not so subtle digs at Meeka throughout the ladies’ Italian getaway. Those digs become blows this evening as the women get into a knock-down-drag-out brawl while out clubbing in Rome.

The fight has resulted in a lawsuit with Meeka suing her co-star for assault and battery. Tami responded on her twitter page, “I was unaware of this pending lawsuit until getting word from my publicist, to which I have no comment.” She later added, “I was defending myself-I didn’t attack her.” Guess we’ll have to see on tonight’s episode.

The TV Guide preview also states someone will quit the show tonight. All signs are pointing to Meeka! Wowzers. And finally, the reunion is taping today. Here’s to hoping Tami the ladies will keep their hands to themselves.

On tonight’s Basketball Wives, Evelyn Lozado confronts Jennifer Williams about a radio interview she gave regarding Evelyn’s engagement to Chad Ochocinco. On last week’s episode, Evelyn and her friend Noe implied Jennifer was jealous of the engagement, and Jennifer is now speaking out about it.

Jennifer tells the HollywoodLife, “I just want to clear the air about this whole Evelyn and Chad engagement. Evelyn did not call and tell me that she got engaged, she tweeted something and people starting asking me. So I was waiting for her to call me and tell me the news, and she didn’t tell me for quite some time.”

Watching last week’s episode was surprising to her as well. She reveals, “For her and Noe to imply that I was jealous was a little shocking. I have no need to be jealous, I have been married and I know what it is like to be a wife.” And now she’ll know what it feels like to be an ex-wife once her divorce to Eric Williams is finalized.

Jennifer claims she was merely stating her concerns about her friend’s relationship with Chad. In fact she reveals she told Evelyn the same, admitting, “When I did speak to her [about her engagement], I expressed my concerns because she had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I didn’t want to see her hurt again. Evelyn and I were friends way before this show. I have watched her and helped her through two breakups with Antoine Walker just as she has watched me get married and helped me cope with my divorce.”

Moving right along to sh*t stirrer Shaunie O’Neal who has recently spoken out about, specifically the portrayal of black women on the show. With the new Los Angeles cast already raising eyebrows, Shaunie has a lot to say, and she’s mainly pointing fingers at the West Coast ladies for being ‘trashy.’ She tells BET, “The L.A. cast — there are some wives and fiancés, which I’m fine with. But there’s a little bit of trash kind of sprinkled into that cast that I’m totally against.”

In case you planned on blaming her for any Los Angeles drama, as she is Executive Producer of the series, Shaunie is quick to say, “I was really very hands off with that cast. It’s just drama and…that’s not my vision. I don’t think that all money is good money. I don’t need it that bad. So we are having some issues.” So how is the show’s creator handing the issues? Two words: she’s not. Why would she? Issues create drama and drama drives the ratings! Although according to Shaunie, it seems she lost the fight to have less drama. She admits, “I’ve kind of just had to take a backseat and shut up and just let it go, let it ride. It’s David and Goliath right now.”

So tonight’s battle will be between Jennifer and Evelyn over the radio interview, while next season’s battle will be between the Executive Producer and the new cast stealing said producer’s limelight over acting like ladies and not causing drama. Can’t wait to see how each plays out!


Eric who? It seems Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams is doing just fine after filing for divorce from husband Eric Williams.

Jennifer has a new boyfriend according to the Necole Bitchie blog, who spotted Jennifer above with her new beau Lucas James at a recent event. So who is Lucas? Just an upgrade from Eric a celebrity trainer/nutritionist.

The Bossip blog adds that Jennifer and Lucas became official over the Memorial Day weekend, and the two have been spotted getting cozy in New York, Phoenix, Los Angeles, and Miami. In fact Jennifer confirmed she is indeed dating Lucas and when asked if he’s going to be on the show, she answered no.

Lucas is described as a personal trainer with a “luxurious healthy lifestyle company,” who pushes his high-end clientele to make weight-loss a lifestyle as opposed to just a gym routine. Lucas however has a background in reality television. In 2008, he won “Date My Ex: Jo & Slade”, which starred Jo De La Rosa and Slade Smiley of the Real Housewives of Orange County.

More photos of Lucas and Jen below! And as for Eric, he tweeted days ago that Jen had gone “Hollywood.”

Meanwhile, the Basketball Wives threw a premiere party over the weekend in New Jersey sans Royce and Tami. Photos from that party below plus a photo of Jennifer with Nene Leakes at the BET Awards!



On last night’s episode of Basketball Wives, Shaunie O’Neal gets the ladies together in NYC for some bonding and some peer mediation – but leaves instigator Meeka Claxton out of the loop! Jennifer Williams goes on a blind date with a new Eric, Suzie Ketcham and Royce Reed stay behind in Miami and therefore stay out of the drama, and Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozado make amends without coming to blows!

Things start off with Suzie meeting up with Meeka to discuss the argument at the Polo Match. Suzie is taking Meeka’s side, probably thinking that is the side Evelyn will be on so she can impress the mean girls with her ability to quickly ditch Royce. Meeka admits she probably should not have gotten involved in all the dramz and that her and Tami do not mesh. Taking an Evelyn like attitude about people not mattering if she doesn’t want them to, Meeka advises Tami to keep a move on. She also advises Suzie to stay out of things! Um, pot meet kettle!


Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams files for divorce take 2!

After seemingly filing for divorce on this season of Basketball Wives, TMZ is reporting Jennifer actually just filed for divorce from husband Eric Williams on Friday.

Jennifer finally pulled the trigger, filing the papers in Hudson County Superior Court in New Jersey. Jennifer, who cites irreconcilable differences, married Eric in the Bahamas back in 2007. The marriage was however cursed from the start as Jennifer has stated in the past that Eric cheated on her days before their wedding.


Eric also reportedly had an illegitimate child out of wedlock, which Jennifer was well aware of.

Jennifer is requesting alimony, plus an “equitable” distribution of the couple’s assets. They have no kids together.

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of Basketball Wives. On the 5th episode this season, Evelyn and Tami feud, which hangs a dark cloud over a trip to New York. Meanwhile, Jen lines up a date on the rebound from Eric; and Evelyn mends fences with her long-absent father.

The episode airs at 8/7c and a preview clip is below!


On the heels of her ‘Non mutha-f*ckin factor’ t-shirts, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada is moving on to a new venture!

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!
