Evelyn Lozada Quits Basketball Wives
Sources close to the reality star tell us ... Evelyn feels producers violated her trust by allegedly divulging sensitive information about an illicit relationship she had in the past.

This trick should leave the show. How do you look at someone and tell them you had an affair with their husband and that they were a "non-factor." Really? She claims 10 years ago she slept with this man and didn't know he was married. You're 30 years old and he is a public figure and you didn't know? You didn't want to know...just say it trick!!!

NOOOOOOOOO! She has NO talent. This role was the luckiest event in her life. Don't send her back to being a prostitute-by-proxy! Don't make her sleep with guys to support her lifestyle!

She isn't even a WIFE and never was. She was engaged yrs ago, not even currently engaged to a BB ball player. She needs to transfer to Football wives if Ocho really ends up marrying her. God bless him if he does.

I caught a couple episodes over the weekend for the first time, pretty entertaining stuff, but why is it called WIVES??.. there are no BB wives on the show. There are a couple of ex's, a former fiancee, and girlfriend, and some baby mamas. I do love Tami though..loved her back in the day on MTV realworld too... she is pure ghetto trash, and she knows it!. Evelyn jumps from athlete to athlete to pay her bills! Show wont last too much longer. And that Royce chick is a complete bore!

#8 mel: You know, though I agree with what you said...#4 arianasmama didn't say she DOESN'T blame the man or that she would take him back. She probably DOES blame him and WOULDN't take him back - that's a no brainer.

But the point that arianasmama is trying to make is that "this trick" didn't even feel compassion of empathy for her part in hurting someone. Even if "this trick" DIDN'T know he was married...she should still feel enough compassion to not act like it "ain't no thing". When you find out someone died, you don't just say "whatever"...you say "I'm sorry for your loss". Well, that marriage is dead....she should at least have some compassion for the wife for finding out her marriage is dead, no? SMH.

#4 is so right!! 10 years ago Kenny Anderson and Antoine Walker were playing on the same team (Celtics). I would assume Kenny was hittin it first and passed you on to Antione. TRick indeed!!

Get rid of her. Tammy is ghetto, but she doesn't try to hide it. This Evelyn mess is ghetto, but thinks she is hiding the fact.

El wrongo!!

Of course they'd leak it! Tami is wild and those produceres love to show her losing her mind. Actually, this was the one time -- the ONLY time -- one of Tami's freak out sessions made logical sense.

She's pissed Evelyn didn't tell her upfront, but if I had bad news like that, it'd be hard for me to fess up, too. You know it's going to hurt the other person either way, whether you wait or do it right away. At least she eventually came clean about it. It looks like Evelyn took forever from the time they first met, but that's only cause the shows are released one week at a time when they actually tape for much shorter bursts of time.

In the end, that is not an easy thing to tell someone at all. Kenny is just as much to blame, though.

Tami feels Evelyn should've known she existed back then. Can anyone remember back to 1999 and if media was so in your face? I know I didn't know much about celebs (or athletes wives) back then versus now.

In then end, I do feel bad for Tami. That came as a big blow.
