The hit VH1 reality show, 'Basketball Wives' is officially gearing up for another season. Unfortunately, many of the fan-favorites will not be returning this time around, one of whom is Evelyn Lozada.
Evelyn Lozada is known as the bad girl of the famed reality show, and why wouldn't she? She has been called out by fans time and again for her brutal vernacular and even some physical attacks against her co-stars. Lozada announced that she quit the show for good last year as is the case with co-stars, Kristen Scott and Tami Roman as well. The reality star explained that she made this informed decision because she felt ready to move onwards and upwards, thereby opening herself up to more opportunities that come her way.
After working for a whole nine seasons of the VH1 show, Evelyn Lozada is officially parting ways with 'Basketball Wives' for good. The 45-year-old also cited her family as one of the reasons for her decision to depart, mentioning that her mom felt "relief" when she told her she would no longer continue to be on the show.
In a recent interview with E! News’ 'Just the Sip', Lozada revealed that it was time for her to move on. She said, "I am no longer going to do Basketball Wives. I think that it’s time for me to open up the universe to other things and it’s been a hard decision because I can do it with my eyes closed. But it’s so difficult and it takes so much energy and it’s not the most positive energy".
Although we won't be seeing Lozads in Season 10 of the show, In spite of their absence, a few familiar faces are returning, some of whom include British Williams, DJ Duffey, Brooke Bailey, Brandi Maxiell, Shaunie O’Neal, Jackie Christie, Williams, and Malaysia Pargo.
Stay tuned for Season 10 of 'Basketball Wives', which premieres on May 16, 2022, at 8/7c, only on VH1.
