Turmoil is running wild in the world of the ‘Basketball Wives.‘
However, Evelyn Lozada is determined to rise above it.
Full story below…
Lozada’s public image has taken an irreparable hit after the last season of the TV series saw her lead an lengthy attack on her Nigerian co-star OG Chijindu.
An attack, OG– and millions of viewers- say was rooted in colorism, featurism and the show’s long-running problem with cast mates who refuse to fall in line with what some say is Shaunie O’Neal’s tyrannical reign.
Last week, a production insider spoke to the blind items website ‘Crazy Days and Nights’ and stunned readers by revealing that VH1 intends to put an end to said reign by draining the power out of O’Neal’s position as a producer while letting her keep the credit to protect her reputation from shame and embarrassment.
Good. Now maybe they will stop forcing Evelyn down our throats…🤞🏾

Unfortunately for her, no one at VH1 has stepped up to deny the claim, giving many reason to believe that their silence on the matter confirms that is true.
After OG gave an interview giving viewers more insight into the bullying she faced and how much of it may have been edited out to appease O’Neal and her posse, Evelyn used Instagram to encourage her fans not to be alarmed by the drama as she intends to overcome it.
When things are going really, really well in your life, whether it’s motherhood, career, personal relationships, just life in general, the devil has a really sneaky, funny way of trying to come in to really throw you off your path with negativity, BS. It’s so clear to me, and I’m always baffled because I’m like, um, I see what you’re doing. I say this all to say, do not ever let negativity, people, anything, throw you off your path and your mission and the things you’re trying to accomplish, because the closer you get to that goal, the devil is going to try and come in and steal your joy. So that is my message for today.
She delivered the motivational message after facing claims that her recent baptism had more to do with fame than faith.

Shaunie, who has worked with VH1 to launch three TV shows, insists that she is still in control of the ‘Wives’.
It's completely unfair to those women who feel that they can speak openly or have a disagreement with Shaunie without fear they're going to be fired. So yes, remove that EP hat and put her in the same firing range that all the other cast members are in.

She created the freaking show. If not for Shaunie there would be no basketball wives. All them women would be broke. I like Shaunie, if she goes I go! PERIOD!
