'Basketball' Wife -- Courted for 'Dancing w/ the Stars'

7/22/2011 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Basketball Wives" star Evelyn Lozada may soon follow in her fiance's fox-trotting footsteps -- TMZ has learned the future Mrs. Chad Ochocinco is in talks to join the next season of "Dancing with the Stars!"

Sources connected to the show tell us ... "Dancing" producers love the idea of having Evelyn on the show -- especially since she's engaged to Chad who was a previous contestant.

We're told the show is even hoping to involve Mr. Ochocinco ... since he's now an expert in the ways of the ballroom.

So far ... no comment from the show.

The show should be called "Dancing with no Stars".
Who the **** are these people casting?

The dance teachers are more qualified to be considered stars at this point, than the damn SO CALLED stars.

Might as well cast Rebecca Black in the crappy show too.

I've been reading about the "stars" they want for this season. Dancing with the Stars is jumping the shark as we speak.

TMZ are either being paid to promote this crap or they are the only ones who watch this crap.

Can someone remind me of what the word 'stars' refers to in the sentence 'dancing with the stars' - still don't believe any of these wanna be's are stars - or maybe if they want to go this route, they can do a season dance off of people from the housewives series and call it dancing with the housewives - they are not STARS - or maybe they're just legends in their own minds.

There are only 3 people on that show who have actually been basketball wives the rest are just baby mamma's trying to make a buck off of whoever they slept with and apparently disregarding the confidentiality agreements they signed to grab their fifteen minutes.

Evelyn is definitley a gold digger to the fullest. She has gained money and fame all for one thing.....being a hoe and screwing athletes. I can't knock her though, I guess if I had the oppertunity I would do the same thing, go head girl!

Another ghetto BRUNT BORICUA on TV is one too many. This lazy, golddigging manly looking creature has never worked a day in her life now she's on American TV. Revoke her Green Card and send her packing back to P.Rico where she came from and don't forget to round up her 30 thousand other illegal relations while you're at it. Sickening!

I can't wait for the new season of DWTS! I wouldn't mind Evelyn on it. She's a Bronx chick as I am. I would love to see Jamie Lee Curtis on it. She's a huge fan of the show and she's an actual star. I can't wait to find out who will be on the show. Hope we find out soon.
