'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.

She is so ghetto, not even funny. I hate how she pronounces "Ocho Cinco". She is such a high class poser, truthfully all she is a cheat chaser, dream killer, and a gold digging hooker. The show is terrible and, except for the one that is getting divorced from Eric Williams, all are losers.

Awww..."Bye bye, Boo Boo!" (And may the door hit your fat ass on the way out!) BTW, your nose makes you look like a pug or one of those dogs with a smooshed-up nose. Karma can be a bigger bee-atch than you are, so you need to start behaving and be thankful for things, instead of picking on people and sleeping around.

I think its time they let this low class jump off whore go. Replace her with someone else who will appreciate the opportunity to work on television. Her "relationship" with chad is a "business arrangement". He told her so at the dinner table. I can make you "blow up more than you are" is what he said. Why no one picked up on that nor talked about it on the reunion show is beyond Me but hey, these chicks aren't the shiniest leaves on the tree, including Shaunie.

I say let Evelyn go. She is BORING anyway. All the swearing and tough acting do not actually make you tough. It makes you a low class whore. Something Evelyn Lozado is. She won't mess with Royce because Royce will beat her ass. Get rid of her already before she takes the show down a few more notches. If Shaunie is a business woman like she is pretending to be then she would replace Evelyn Lozado with someone a lot more interesting and with a touch of class. If she wants controversy on the show fake Evelyn Lozado isn't it. Attention whore Chad Johnson is giving this low class bitch some bad business advice. His dating show sucked and it was pathetic.

**I hope the "wives" (term used loosely) is reading this review because business is business and Lozardo whore is definitely not worth 20 grand. All the fake fronting is see through and will lose fans watching the show with this jump off attention whore on the show. I know I will stop watching it because I find her quite sickening and ignorant. Ignorance does not make for ratings.**

# 30 if you were keeping up with the show, Royce and her friend aren't together anymore. Duh, also that trick tried to say last night that Tammy was the one wanting to steal the show it was not Tammy it's her tacky nasty self. I told you all that before she slept with Chad she was healthier looking and now she looks sick like she has AIDS, you can see the bones in her face. And he doesn't use condoms too...And we know she is a slut.
Shaunie dismiss this bitch!

Ya-Trick...Let her go! Wow, she's over 40 and still a jump-off. Great role model for your teenage daughter. Mommy, look I'm a jump-off. Let her join the cast of football wives (which she's not one of those either). She if Chanita, Dawn, Pilar or any of the women on that show would put up with her antics.

Chad, if you cannot read the writing on the wall I will spell it out for you plain and simple...YOU ARE MARRYING A NASTY SELF-ENTITLED GOLD DIGGING B I T C H! SHE IS A HO PLAIN AND SIMPLE AND ONLY WANTS YOU FOR YOUR MONEY. Evelyn is a despicable C U N T...and her attitude is awful! I say good riddance b y a t c h...the worse is when she admits to sleeping with Tami's ex WHILE TAMI WAS MARRIED TO HIM...and then insults Tami....Evelyn is a wicked woman with aboslutely no redeaming qualities...fake to to the bone and mean as well. Buy-bye boo!

This show needs to change the title to Basketball Groupies! That's all they are. Not one is married to a basketball player anymore. Evelyn isn't worth a nickel so I hope they fire her a**. She's trashy.
