I feel like I’m living in a parallel universe. Evelyn Lozada, wine bottle throwing star of Basketball Wives will be appearing on Oprah‘s OWN Network on a show called Iyanla Fix My Life.
Unfortunately it doesn’t appear that Evelyn‘s life is the one being fixed, apparently she’s participating in a work-out segment so all of y’all can fix your lives to be more like Evelyn’s! Correction from Evelyn’s team: “Iyanla was showing Evelyn how to relax and get in her ZEN moment. The shooting actually took place at Evelyn’s home where Iyanla met with her family.”
Taking to her blog, Evelynannounced: “Hey Everyone! I’m with Iyanla and can’t wait for you guys to see me on her show ‘Iyanla Fix My Life’ on OWN – Oprah Winfrey Network in September.”
Superfan and random twitter invitee Cheryl Minton tweeted a photo of her with Chad at the ceremony. Cheryl was invited via twitter when the recent widow told Chad and Evelyn her 30th wedding anniversary would have been this July 4th! Didn’t Cheryl get the memo that only the bride wears white on the big day?
Oh dear… more possible reasons for Jennifer Williams‘ divorce from Eric “Egg Head” Williams are emerging. According to a new report Eric fathered a “secret love child” in 2011 and now his baby mama is seeking child support. I guess Eric hasn’t listened to Kanye West‘s song enough…
TMZ is reporting that Tavia Serena Cannon filed a Complaint for Support in PA last week because she insists she had a child with theBasketball Wives star’s ex-husband in October 2011. Which means Eric allegedly hooked-up with Miss Tavia in Jan or February of 2011 while he was still married to Jenn! Oopsie. Jennifer filed for divorce from Eric in June 2011.
Sources tell TMZ that the Basketball Wives star’s car was re-homed earlier this month with a “no-return order,” which means even once she pays the bill she’s still not getting the car back!
Jenn owes a whopping $92,000 on the 2006 white Bentley, which is allegedly already scheduled to hit the auction block. Despite the car going to a new home, Jennifer is still responsible for the remaining balance. No bueno!
If there’s one thing we know for certain, it’s that reality TV and BFF-hood don’t mix. Repeat: Do not come on a reality show with your BFFL and expect it to be buddy-buddy 4 eva. It seems the second the cameras start rolling and the editing kicks in – along with the drinks and the contracts stipulating drama, fights, and backstabbing, the individual interviews and the out-famewhoring and jealousy – these long-time friendships melt faster than an ice cube in a toaster.
Friendship divorces have come to dominate reality TV and sadly it was often those friendships that got us hooked on the show in the first place. When a friendship divorce happens, often it leaves the fans as divided as the main characters.
So here’s to the used-to-be friends and their friendship divorces. So sorry it didn’t work out – but sometimes one person’s loss is another’s gain! Big things can come from public relationship break-ups.
Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our most memorable friendship divorces.
Uh-oh… somebody has a case of the She by SheBrokes! Jennifer Williams is about to be out of an expensive car that it looks like she can’t afford!
TMZ is reporting that Jenn’s Bentley is on the verge of repossession after the reality star stopped making payments on the car – and now the company is taking her to court. Jenn’s lawyer is going to be making the big bucks this year – maybe he can buy the Bentley from her.
The Basketball Wives star bought her USED white Bentley in 2006 and way back in 2009 stopped making payments on the car. I guess it was old news by then! Unfortunately three years later the Toyota Motor Credit Corporation in Syosset, NY decided to file a lawsuit against Jenn because they want the car back. And they mean business.
Rumors have been swirling about the cast of next season’s Basketball Wives. Have Jenn Williams, Kesha Nichols, and Royce Reed been handed their walking papers? While Jenn and Kesha have remained mum on the gossip, both Royce and producer/Queen Bee Shaunie O’Neal have taken to twitter (where else?) to add their two cents. Deny, deny, deny! Shocking, I know.
After the news broke, Royce tweeted, “This is so entertaining!!! Gotta love TMZ!”
Shaunie chose to respond in a manner that didn’t really answer any definitive questions. It’s not surprising, knowing how well she’s mastered the ability to double talk. She responded to a follower’s question about the firings by saying, “Let’s just say… I will not entertain anything but the truth hence me not replying 2 this RUMOR of the day.” So…what you’re saying is?
As if any of you were planning to watch the fifth season of Basketball Wives, I have some breaking news that may just send you over the edge completely. TMZ.com is reporting that three of the ladies (and yes, these may actually be considered ladies) are getting axed from the show. While nothing has been confirmed, VH1’s official statement is, “We don’t comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.” However, when you hear who is getting the boot–and why–I doubt you’ll be surprised.
First to hit the road is Royce Reed. Why? I would say it’s obvious. First, a lot of the women, including Queen Bee Shaunie O’Neal herself, refuse to film with Royce. I am guessing that makes it more difficult to have a legitimate story line. She doesn’t go on the cast trips, isn’t invited to birthday dinners, and misses out on all the bottle throwing and brawls. Lucky. Second, due to a gag order that has been in place since 2009, she isn’t even allowed to say the name of the basketball player to whom she was never a wife. Sorry, Royce, but the writing seems to be on the wall for you.
