Holy majoly! On Monday night’s episode of Basketball Wives, it was the conversation heard ’round the world…and by “world” I mean the VH1 following that the show has amassed. Evelyn Lozada takes to her personal blog to address her discussion with Chad Ochocinco regarding his infidelities, seemingly giving him a pass to cheat, as well as dishing on her cast mates–former friend Jennifer Williams in particular.
It’s obvious that Evelyn and Jenn have quite the history, and perhaps (maybe? Just a little?) Evelyn is upset about the downfall of their friendship. She reminds her fans, “You know what’s funny; the fact that Jennifer brought up my daughter is disturbing. I say this because Jennifer doesn’t know the half about being a mother…she isn’t one! Jennifer has been in my daughter’s life since Shaniece was six years old. Recently, she saw my daughter in passing and didn’t say two words to her. With that said, she needs to keep my daughter’s name out of her mouth and I am VERY serious about that.”
Evelyn even wants to clarify a lot of things when it comes to Jenn. “On Jennifer saying that I need to speak to her in a respectful manner, I was VERY calm at the beginning of last week’s scene. How can I talk to her in a respectful manner when she is yelling? I even told her to calm down. How does she even expect me to accept or seem to believe her apology is sincere when she was constantly yelling at me?” She continues, “It truly baffles me that Jennifer can even say that I need to speak to her in a respectful manner when all the while she has been disrespecting me by talking about me publicly. Even Shaunie [O'Neal] and Tami [Roman] could see that she doesn’t get it.”
“One thing that I would like to point out is that Jennifer has been around my brother-in-law and one of my niece’s since birth. Not one time, even when we were cool did she reach out to see how he was or how my family was doing,” Evelyn accuses. She explains, “I know that she and I aren’t cool, but if there were something tragic happening in her family, I would put this entire BS to the side and check on her.” Evelyn further asserts, “And about me being exempt from Jen’s life…no one is worried about Jenn she has been exempt from my life for a while. #BOOM”
Moving on to other cast mates, Evelyn seems to follow the mantra that if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. Who knew she was capable of that?
Perhaps her publicist is writing this blog…
Of Kenya [Bell]‘s “music productions”, Evelyn sidesteps the issue, revealing, “No comment on Kenya’s videos…keep watching because I touch on that later.”
Additionally, Evelyn sings Suzie [Ketcham]‘s praises. She says, “I know she receives a lot of flack, but at the end of the day, the show wouldn’t work if it weren’t for Suzie. Suzie is connected to everyone and whether she is messy or not, she is the reason why the show flows. You can be mad at me for saying that, but it’s the honest to God’s truth.” So the reason the show flows is because Suzie desperately goes back and forth among the ladies (I use that term loosely) in hopes of staying on everyone’s good side.
Maybe the most shocking thing Evelyn says on her blog (and mind you, this is a blog where she addresses her one-sided open relationship with Chad) regards her nemesis Royce Reed. She shares, “I really think that acting is Royce’s calling, for some reason something within me tells me that. Royce seems very passionate about acting and I think she will do very well. Not to mention that her hair looked amazing on tonight’s show. Royce at one time judged me last season regarding Chad and I will not judge her for being with a different man this season. However, I’m happy for her and wish her all the best.” Wait, what??? I think I just had a minor stoke reading that! I mean, sure, the statement is passive aggressive, but it includes more than one compliment! Her publicist HAS to be writing this.
Finally, Evelyn addresses her relationship with Chad. She laments, “Are we perfect? Absolutely not, however, we do love each other and are both focused on making this work. I would never involve my daughter nor would he involve his children in something that wasn’t real.”
“I am not condoning Chad for cheating; I am a realist as to the world we live. When your relationship is high profile and publicized like mine, I don’t put anything past anyone. Who is it to say that either one of us will eventually fall into that temptation one day? We don’t know that. My thing is, I want to take my wedding vows and say, we want this to be forever, but you never know. Chad and I are open with communication, we talk all the time and he is a work in progress.” Evelyn reveals, “I am hoping that men and women both can relate to us because there will be temptation, but it takes a strong bond to defeat it.” There is so much wrong with what she’s saying, I can’t even begin to start.
Summing it up, Evelyn professes, “I love Chad, my focus is him and vice-versa and we are going to do this thing and work it out. A lot of times people say you shouldn’t be open with your dude and tell him what you have done in the past and vice-versa, but it works for us, he doesn’t judge me and I don’t judge him. Nobody is perfect it is what it is. I wasn’t looking for Chad, Chad came into my life on Twitter.” Of course he did – it’s almost poetic.
Thank you, Evelyn, for giving me the perfect transition to your recent tweets which seem to condone Chad’s behavior and an open relationship. Her cryptic quotes reference how open the couple’s communication is, as well as pointing out the fact that Evelyn never turned down the threesome. Hmmm….A screen shot of said tweets is below.
Well there you have it, misspellings and all! Who am I to talk…especially in 140 characters or less.
