Evelyn Lozada Skips Basketball Wives Reunion Show, VH1 Pulls the Plug

'Basketball Wives' star Evelyn Lozada leaving Sirius XM studios

Evelyn Lozada is so over Basketball Wives. After five seasons, she’s beyond it so much that she refused to film the show’s reunion episode. This week, TMZ reported that VH1 was supposed to tape the reunion show earlier this month, but Evelyn refused to participate. Why? Allegedly, because she didn’t want to discuss her ex-husband, Chad Ochocinco Johnson. Reportedly, producers cancelled the entire reunion because they felt there wasn’t enough material for viewers to watch. Evelyn also confirmed the news on twitter:

Evelyn’s stance on wanting to close this chapter of her life, isn’t new news. In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, the 37-year-old explained:

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. I would do my own show because I know I would have creative control. I’m in a different space, I’m open to doing a spin-off, but just not with a cast of women.

And Evelyn isn’t the only one requesting a spin-off.

During an interview with Power 105’s ‘The Breakfast Club’, Tami Roman explained that she’s ready to move on:

I said I don’t think I will, but my contract’s not up. But I do believe that Bastball Wives has run it’s course. I think it’s just time the natural trangression is we have our own shows or we have ventures that we move onto and keep the train moving.

No official comment has been released by VH1 about the canceled reunion show.  P.S. Are you disappointed that there will be no reunion show? And are you interested in watching a spin-off by either Tami Roman or Evelyn Lozada?
