Evelyn Lozada Doubles Salary on 'Basketball Wives'

4/5/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Evelyn Lozada got a HUGE raise before she struck a deal with VH1 to stay on board for Season 3 of “Basketball Wives” -- in fact, we're told she more than DOUBLED her old salary.

Sources close to the production tell TMZ, Evelyn didn't get the $20k per episode she demanded ... but we're told she's "very happy" with the counter-offer.

But Evelyn didn't just get a pay bump -- we're told Producers also APOLOGIZED to Lozada for the way she was portrayed in the Season 2 finale ... a huge reason why Evelyn was hesitant to re-sign with the network.

We're told Lozada -- who threatened to leave the show after she felt the producers backstabbed her -- is happy with the new deal ... and shooting is already underway.

This show is a joke! It makes those woman look like fooles and there out of themselfs. Where is the true friendship in this show. As a black woman myself,I would never be an ass like evelyn. If you look up the word bitch, you would find her face there with a foolish smile on it.And that other who's always with her,you know that real BLACK ONE that looks like a man.Was that her husband drunk when he said i do! Look at her, check her neck and feet to make sure she's what she say she is. This days you have to make sure !

she was portrayed as the whore she is. she slept with everyone on her own. She is a gold digging skank like most of the women who chase the men and then act like they did not know they were the men had many women. They are an embarrassment to black women everywhere. keeping people in a maze watching this stuff. Tell Evelyn don't sleep with Chad's team mate like she ran through the celtic men. What a classless bimbo.

@ the idiot who think only white women have blonde hair, do you live in a bubble? Black people have kids with blonde hair, blue eyes.

Vh1 should've replaced this bitch than give her a raise. Girls like her are quite common, unfortunately. People will do anything to get on reality tv and behave like *******s, especially seeing that bad behavior is rewarded with tv shows and money. Television in this country is poisoning our kids. They will grow up with a sense of entitlement because all they see in television is bad behavior being rewarded without repercussions. Kids will not understand that with bad behavior come consequences. It really disgusts me what is going on.

Vh1 the lost their mind. This foul mouth Evelyn has portrayed hersself to be mean, nasty, and vulgar the whole show. It looked like to me she had what was coming. I would've replaced her in a hot second. She would've came back running bcs she don't have nowhere else to get her money but on her back and that back is wearing out. Tami needs a raise also if u give this trifling girl one. Vh1 I don't think I will be watching this time.
