Well, that certainly didn't take long, did it? Basketball Wives creator and star Shaunie O'Neal is finally opening up about her pal Evelyn Lozada's bun in the oven. I guess we can all just stop pretending that Carl Crawford "may be" the father, right?
Well color me shocked! Former Basketball Wives' star Evelyn Lozada is having a baby with a gazillionaire athlete. I never would have guessed! While the reality star is still remaining mum on the father of her unborn baby, pretty much every media outlet is reporting that the child's father is Carl Crawford of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
People claims that the reveal happened in an online interview. However, her rep is adamant that Evelyn did not verbally confirm Carl's paternity. Evelyn will, of course, talk all about how excited she is to be having another child.
Apparently, its only on Bravo when stars get turned down for televised weddings (sorry Gretchen Rossi!), but on any other network the acquaintances of barely featured reality stars can have their walk down the aisle shoved down the viewers' throats. Well, technically I guess we don't have to watch…but we all know I can't pass up train wreck television!
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!
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?
