Evelyn Lozada struck a pose with Nelly and Sway Calloway while visiting SiriusXM Studios in New York City today. This week, the ‘Basketball Wives’ star revealed that she has fulfilled her contractual obligations as a cast member of the hit reality series is concerned — and is now ready for her own solo spin-off.
“I signed on to do five seasons and this is our fifth. I don’t really see me doing a sixth season. I know I can carry my own show, pretty much carried this one,” she said.
“I would do my own show because I know I would have creative control. I’m in a different space,” she continued. “I’m open to doing a spin-off, but just not with a cast of women.”
Ev’s prior shot at a solo series was canned following by VH1 after Chad Johnson’s arrest for misdemeanor domestic violence.

Tami Roman dialed up Philly’s 107.9 Morning Show to set the record straight on her controversial advice to friend Evelyn Lozada towards the end of the ‘Basketball Wives’ Season 5 premiere episode on Monday night.
“Evelyn has openly admitted since we taped a year ago, that had the world not been involved, had nobody known what had happened she would have gone right back to Chad. So with her saying that, my advice then became, if that’s the relationship you want to keep and you feel like it’s worth saving — go to counseling.”
While out to dinner with the rest of the girls, Tami made the suggestion to Evelyn that if she believed her marriage to Chad Johnson was worth saving that she should “step out on faith” and give him a second chance.
Former NFL star Chad Johnson‘s plea deal for no jail time fell apart today when he playfully slapped his male attorney on the ass at his probation hearing inside a Broward County, Fla. courtroom. Do me a favor and read the preceding sentence three more times. Ladies and gentlemen, this is that fuck shit.
ESPN reports Judge Kathleen McHugh says the 35-year-old wasn’t taking things seriously enough, even after he returned to the courtroom and apologized for his behavior. In return, McHugh slapped his ass with a 30-day jail sentence and also extended his probation for three months.
“I don’t know that you’re taking this whole thing seriously. I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is there something funny about this?” McHugh said, slapping the plea deal document down on her desk. “The whole courtroom was laughing. I’m not going to accept these plea negotiations.
