Fans of VH1’s popular “Basketball Wives” series were thrown a disappointing curve ball in September when the show’s most popular cast member, Evelyn Lozada, announced via her Twitter page that she would not be filming any more reality shows, including the fourth season of “Basketball Wives.” But after months of silence about the matter, it’s now been revealed that Lozada will, in fact, return for the fourth season of the show.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, VH1 announced the cast lineup of the show’s fourth season on Dec. 6 and many were pleasantly surprised to find Lozada’s name included on the list.
Previously it was reported that Lozada planned to leave the series after VH1 posted a blog entry claiming that she’d cheated on her fiancé, Chad Ochocinco. It’s now being reported that Lozada has been in talks with VH1 about starring in her own spin-off show, which is how the network possibly convinced her to return to “Basketball Wives.”
Lozada isn’t the only cast member who’s making a surprise return to the series. Fiesty cast member Royce Reed was also included in the season four cast list, despite the fact that just days before she announced that she would be leaving the show.
The wives will also be joined by two new cast members, Kesha Nichols, whose fiancé, San Antonio Spurs’ Richard Jefferson, broke up with her via email just hours before their wedding in 2009; and Kenya Bell, who’s currently divorcing Golden State Warriors’ Charlie Bell and was arrested in May for stabbing him.
Well, it looks like it’s going to be another explosive season for the fourth season of “Basketball Wives” and we’ve no doubt that Lozada will be in the middle of a lot of it. Check out five of Lozada’s biggest moments on “Basketball Wives” below. –nicholas robinson
