'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.

my opinion    

I agree with the comment that there should be West coast Basketball wives with Khloe Kardashian they have MUCH more class then these current Basketball Wives whom are not married.

This show should be called Basketball Pimps! Because no one is a basketball wife... They sleep with them just for money... For example Jennifer do you think that she loves him? He is ugly as hell... She loves his money... Come on pimps go find a job like everybody else.

wouldn't give 20c to listen to her and her potty mouth ... she's just typical white trash, and has never been married to any NBA player, her nearest thing to it was a 10 year engagement ... wonder where this relationship with Chad is going ... I think she's trying to follow in the footsteps of Bethany Frankel with a spin off show ... aaagghhh I'll be passing on that one for sure!

Royce is just jelous because Dewayne didnt buy her that $93000 ring they went to look at. He was like "WTF". She wasnt gonna get no ring from him. Maybe a $1000 not a BIG one that weighs her finger down lik she wanted. Thats why she aint with him. She obiviously was very opionated when she said things like "lets be real Bitch, if its on your dime, Im going". SO THAT THERE TELLS YOU WHAT SHE IS ABOUT, USING PEOPLE. So who is two faced ass Royce to call Evelyn out for calling her a "Bitch this Bitch that" when Royce uses that same word. Especially to Shaunie when Shaunie took her ungrateful money hungry ass to Spain. PLEASE TAKE ROYCE OFF THE SHOW. SHE SAYS SHE DONT NEED THE SHOW. She trying to act all too good for the ladies and disrespecting Shaunie who took her under her wing. when in the first show she danced and literally ****ed the devil with her nasty coochie going all the way to the ground. THAT IS NOT CUTE OR CLASSY. Royce looks like shes horny all the time with that dragon nose. PUFF PUFF

Hopefully she'll get kicked to the curb so she will stop embarrassing her daughter, who has outgrown her in maturity.
