'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.

OH NO! NOT ANOTHER ONE! AND THIS ONE LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE STEPPED ON HER FACE WITH THEIR BOOTS. I HOPE SHE TELLS HER SISTER JLO TO STOP HARASSING ME WITH HER MORONIC E-MAILS. WHY CAN'T THAT WOMAN REALIZE THAT I HAVE MOVED ON TO BETTER, PRETTIER, WHITER THINGS WITH JENNIFER GARNER. IT'S NOT MY FAULT THAT SHE ENDED UP WITH SKELETOR, A 90 POUND CRACKHEAD, BUT HEY, HE'S PUERTORICAN TOO SO THEY HAVE LOTS IN COMMON AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE A GO OF IT. TELL YOUR SISTER TO LEAVE ME ALONE!!

Okay, I didn't complain when Bristol Palin was on the show even though she is only famous because of her mother, but who the hell is this chick? She is a "star" because she engaged to an ex-contestant? That is reaching WAY too far!

Bite your tongue! Telemundo and Univision don't allow PuertoRicans like her on their stations, Spanish speaking TV is only for white Latinos.

They should change the name of the show to "Dancing with the Skanks and Football Players." It amazes me that this show still gets the ratings it does.

Evelyn is NOT a star!! She has a terrible attitude and her sense of entitlement is disgusting. Move on Dancing with the Stars. Chad missed the 8 ball on this one

I can't believe someone actually said the closest thing this show has had to a star is Kim Kardashian. That is too funny! Anyway, I qui*****ching because they put the porn star/groupie Kardashian on the show. Not that the show cares obviously, someone still watches this mess.

Wow. Talk about scraping the bottom of the "stars" barrel. Maybe it's just time to end the show. Or rename it "Dancing with the Reality TV Pseudo-Wannabe-Celebrities Who Would Be Totally Unrecognized By Anyone Passing Them On The Street". I think it's kind of catchy.
