'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.

I hope the show producers let her go and all the rest of the "ex-wives". What a joke this is. It's called 'Basketball Wives" yet there is rarely a wife to be seen. The only wives that are seen on the show arn't part of the show, but merely visitors...the rest of the fame whores are either A.) NOT MARRIED or 2.) WAS MARRIED but going through a divorce. If they do decide to keep around these trolls and proceed with the show, they need to change the title to "Basketball Ex-Wives". Seriously, everytime that show comes on I can't change the channel fast enough, and its mostly because of Jen and Evelyn. Gross, its like watching an ape and its trainer.

What does this hooker-looking chick actually DO to deserve money like that? She's nothing more than an overly made-up, trash talking, golddigging ghetto trash trying hard to be white. There's zero talent or anything compelling about her.

Evelyn is the only one that is worth watching. Not sure if she is worth that much though. This show is funny and many people watch it. We all have a choice on what to watch. If you don't like it then turn the channel!

Evelyn is a poor excuse for a REAL woman, whose vocabulary doesn't extend past "Boo", "Bitch", and other profanities. Who cares if she leaves the show; she's on Ochocinco's payroll now-Boo! Let him foot the bill. KICK HER OFF!!!!!! TAMMI SHOULD'VE KNOCKED ALL THE HORSE TEETH OUT OF HER MOUTH BECAUSE SHE TALKS TOO MUCH CRAP.
