Evelyn Lozada

'Basketball Wives' Made Her

An Offer She Couldn't Refuse

11/27/2011 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Evelyn Lozada was all set to leave "Basketball Wives" and not return for the show's fourth season -- until the show offered her a deal she just couldn't turn down ... which, TMZ has learned, includes her own spin-off show.

As TMZ previously reported, Evelyn had made up her mind that she was done with the show for good after VH1 posted a blog insinuating she cheated on her husband, NFL star Chad Ochocinco.

Once Evelyn let producers know she was out, that's when we're told they really made a push to keep her.

According to our sources, her new arrangement with the show has her shooting about half as often (but with a raise) and that she can work around her daughter's school schedule. We're also told Evelyn has made it clear ... she will not miss any of Chad's games.

But according to our sources, the final carrot that sealed the deal ... was that VH1 promised to spin off Evelyn and Chad into their own show. We're told that show would document the months leading up to their wedding ... but so far no deal to shoot the wedding has been made.

Calls to VH1 were not returned.

This girl with her fake horseteeth and hair and ghetto attitude needs to go away! I stopped watching this show because she causes so much drama. She acts like a mean girl in high school!

Who cares?!? They are only together because Ocho Cinco is a fame whore himself! He's using her to extend his 15 minutes of fame because he's not doing anything on the field. When this ridiculous basketball wive's trash dies down, he'll be gone!

She will do anything if the price is right. I get it we all need to make a living. She is nothing but a mean girl. That's the only reason VH1 wants her back. She as the say. "jump off". She will soon find out Chad has cheated mora than once. Sorry girl, KARMA

This woman pulls the same stunt before each season starts - she always threatens to leave the show, but she receives a nice paycheck adjustment and suddenly appears to tape all of the episodes!
