What happens to a “basketball wife” who gets booted out of the “inner circle” when harassment from Evelyn is enough? She quits the show. According to TMZ, Suzie Ketcham has decided not to return to Basketball Wives for season three because she’s over the reality TV thing.
According to a source close to the production, shooting the show was draining and Suzie “couldn’t take the heat” as a reality star anymore — so Season 2 will be her last.
And the random people constantly trash-talking her on Twitter didn’t help either — we’re told by the end of the last season, all the cyber-hate was beginning to take its toll.
It’s probably those things in conjunction with Evelyn’s childish antics. She won’t admit it but those who watch the show can tell. Speaking of quitting Basketball Wives, I wonder if this means she’ll give up on trying to break into the broadcast world too.

Evelyn Lozada, when asked if she and Chad Ochocino were engaged at this past Thanksgiving’s Jets vs Bengals game replied, “We are like Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Private people” (super side eye). The burning question came weeks after she tweeted pics of an engagement ring and made the statement, “I’m no rabbit but 10 carats looks good on me! Let the hating begin.” Following that announcement, she tweeted a picture of a positive pregnancy test of which she stated, “OMG! I need a major time-out!!! Bye!” (She later said she wasn’t pregnant in another tweet).
So anyway, now that we’ve seen the previews of Basketball Wives Season 2, which show some intimate moments shared between Lozada and Ochocinco, they all of a sudden don’t like talking about their relationship. Riiiiiight. By the way, there’s also a rumor that the couple could get a reality show about their engagement (like that’s a huge shocker).
Here’s the kicker, people just assume that she and Chad Ochocinco are getting married (this is after about five months of “dating”) but Lozada never specifically named Chad as the one who had given her a ring. I guess they have to do what they can to keep the interest buzzing, especially with the return of Basketball Wives looming. Gotta keep those ratings high.

For those of you who believe in love, I have news for you: Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada.
Can you imagine? Two attention whores with programs on the same network have announced plans to marry just in time for the premiere of season two of Basketball Wives – which will feature Ochocinco.
According to TMZ, Chad proposed to his lady friend of four months while she visited him in Cincinnati.
Lozada said yes and tweeted the following picture to stunt. She captioned the picture: “I’m no rabbit but 10 carats looks good on me!! Let the hating begin.”
Haters are to delusional adults what an imaginary friend is to a curious child.
Anyway, Evelyn also tweeted a picture of a positive pregnancy test.
Well, good luck with all of that you two. I’m sure the camera crew will be overcome with tears when they capture these very special moments.

Love (and publicity) is in the air for VH1 reality stars Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada of The Ultimate Catch and Basketball Wives, respectively.
The two are said to have been dating for several months. You know, after they kissed and made up over Chad’s rants about Evelyn’s show.
Speaking of that show, TMZ says that things are so serious between the two that Chad will show up on season two of Basketball Wives.
That’s about as shocking as news of water routinely falling from the sky.
The only problem with these two’s personal business is that it conflicts with the business of VH1. Chad’s on a dating reality show and he’s uploading pictures to Twitpic of he and his girlfriend.
VH1 worries that this “spoiler” will ruin it for viewers who are waiting to see what girl Chad ends up with.
But, honestly, given that no one from any of those dating reality shows have ever stuck with the winner of their rat race (no pun intended) you’d have to be one gullible sucker to still think this stuff really reflects reality.
That said, good luck to Evelyn and Chad in their relationship. I can imagine all of the nasty back and forth fights that await them on Twitter once they break up.

Days ago, Stay Tuned reported on Matt Barnes revealing that he was “disgusted” by the antics of cast members on Basketball Wives.
Two key members of the cast – Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada – have now formally responded.
In an interview with Necolebitchie.com, the two both put Matt and their own fellow basketball wife, Gloria Govan on blast:
Gloria’s fiancé Matt came out and said he was disgusted with the show… how did that make you feel when you heard that he was dogging the show out?
Evelyn: That really bothered me! And I know that everyone put so much into taping this show and at some point, we were saying “Is Gloria even on this show still?”. Because the level of ripping and running that we were doing for the show was crazy! I wouldn’t even see my daughter for eight weeks and for him to totally just sh*t on it like that was very disappointing. My thing is, don’t act like you’re just perfect and you don’t do anything! Especially, when we know somebody first hand that you messed with. And that’s one of the things that drove us crazy through taping, because we had an interview one time with VH1 and she was like “I’ve never had to deal with groupies, I have no idea what that is like” and I’m sitting there like “stop trying to make it seem like we’re the only ones that got played here or are getting played” because I really think that she knows the real and she’s just not saying it. And my thing is when you sign on to do a show be real about it, ‘cause people will read through your bullsh*t! And that was what was frustrating,
Jennifer: I was like Oh really, I was pretty surprised. I didn’t know what he hated about it. I know that we said couple of things like “We know that he’s cheating”… but whatever..

Nude photos are becoming like reality TV, everyone has one (or some). Evelyn Lozada from Basketball Wives (and ex fiance of Antoine Walker) is the latest reality star to have her goodies put on blast.
The 34-year-old mother who stressed on the show that she didn’t want her 17-year-old daughter to be exposed to Royce’s raunchy dancing now looks like quite the hypocrite. According to The YBF she sent these pics to a friend and some how they mysteriously ended up on the internet.
One thing you can’t take away from Ms. Lozada is that she looks good. But other than that, way to be a role model (smh). I’m sure Royce is somewhere chuckling about this. Check out one of the more demure pics below:
You can google her for the rest, there’s at least seven more.

VH1 is giving the wives, baby mamas, and whatchamacallits of NBA players their very own reality series.
The much speculated series has finally been confirmed by VH1. The reality show will be called Basketball Wives and VH1 has given the show an eight-episode order.
Via the press release:
This series is about the insider life of the wives, girlfriends and a few ex-wives of some of the biggest ballers in the game. These ladies live the life. They drive the best cars, live in the biggest mansions, wear designer clothes and jewelry and only travel first class. But living the high life is not all glamour. In order to protect it, they have to deal with the jealousies and dramas of living in — and staying in — the inner circle. They must also keep the groupies at bay while their husbands and boyfriends are traveling on the road for over six months of the year playing ball all-the-while wondering if their spouses are being faithful to them.
The cast is filled with the wives and ex-wives of superstars including Jennifer Williams (wife of Eric Williams), Evelyn Lozada (ex-fiancé of Antoine Walker), Mesha O’Neal (wife of Jermaine O’Neal), Royce Reed, Faith Rain (Udonis Haslem’s girlfriend) and Shaunie O’Neal (wife of Shaquille O’Neal) who will also serve as Executive Producer on the series.
I guess given Shaunie’s marital status with Shaq that A&E thing wasn’t going to happen. But give it up for the soon-to-be Mrs. Ex-Shaq for getting that executive producer credit. Someone knows how to stack checks.
Production on Basketball Wives will begin later this month with a premiere date set for March 15, 2010.
I don’t know what will be more entertaining: The show itself or the venom that the groupies yearning to be in their spots will be spew on message boards, blogs, and Twitter profiles.
