[UPDATE:] Evelyn Lozada’s rep sent HipHollywood the following statement explaining the reality TV star’s reason for pulling out of the Basketball Wives reunion special.
“Your story is not accurate. Evelyn’s reasons for not wanting to film the reunion is solely because she refuses to further talk about or discuss her ex-husband. And, Evelyn Lozada never stated that production could sue her.”
It looks like Monday night’s finale of Basketball Wives will be the last time fans will see Shaunie, Evelyn, Susie, Tasha and Tami until next season.
HipHollywood has learned that producers have nixed their planned reunion special because of tension between cast members … namely Tami, Evelyn and newbie, Tasha Marbury.
A source revealed to HH that Marbury is still salty about Lozada writing about her husband Stephon’s affair in her book, and believes Lozada is “not as loyal of a friend” as she claims to be.
The source tells us exclusively that since filming wrapped Lozada has fallen out with both Marbury and Roman, and is now afraid that both ladies will air certain secrets involving her relationship with former husband Chad Johnson and new relationship with L.A. Dodger Carl Crawford during the reunion.
The source would not divulge what those “secrets” were, but did say Lozada was so adamant about not being involved in the reunion that she even told production that they could “sue her” if necessary.
HH reached out to Lozada for comment but has not heard back.
