'Basketball' Wife:

Gimme $20K an Episode

or I'm Out!

3/14/2011 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned "Basketball Wives" star Evelyn Lozada is giving show producers an ultimatum -- either pay her $20,000 an episode ... or she's gone for good.

As we previously reported, Lozada has already threatened to leave the show -- after, we're told. she became upset because she believes the producers of the show leaked sensitive information about her to another cast member in hopes of inciting a violent confrontation between the two women.

Sources close to the production tell TMZ, Lozada and the other girls currently pull in around $7,500 an episode -- which means Lozada's latest demand would mean a SERIOUS raise.

No word yet on the show's next move.

Cancel this crap. Shaunie you are as much of a whore as Evelyn. Funny she kept telling Jennifer to get divorced she probaly slept with Eric also. Chad you a whore man so you two have alot in common. Better wait golddigger he may not have a job this fall. Next she;ll be going for the men in the NHL. These women never went to church, and they wonder why their lives are all f#$%% up. Why we can't have a show with Black women who have their **** together. Im sick and tired of NBA whores, NFL whores, and just whores in genereal. Bitch you dont need any kids you didnt raise the first one

Really, she isn't worth the money she's getting now. All I see her doing are going out eatting with her girls. So whats worth $2o,000? Definetly not that.

Evelyn, you are a non-mf factor to this show or to your daughters life. What an example you and Tammi are making. Leave the show, you are not worth $20k, you are not worth the $7,500k they are paying you now. You have no class or integrity. You and the rest (except) Meeka have sold your integrity for a few dollars. You should be ashamed of the way you portray yourselft on this show. Shaunie, you are no better. You sit back and let these women demean all women of color, but you pretend non of it affects you. You are part of this in front and in the back. So do not pretend you are not part of the fighting, you were respond for the fight between Tammi and Evelyn. You allowed those no class women to treat Meeka the way they did. You set her up. Her trying to explain herself was not the best, but she still had more class than the rest of you. RUN EVELYN, RUN, LEAVE THE SHOW, YOU ARE
A NON RELEVENT FACTOR TO THIS YOUR AND YOUR OWN LIFE. Chad is one ugly dude!!!!! and you are a wannabe Sista!!!!!!
