Basketball Wives: Evelyn Lozada Lands Her Own Spin-Off Show

Rucuss staffNovember 27, 2011

Evelyn Lozada is making big moves over at VH1.

According to TMZ, the reality star has inked a deal for a spin-off show. Lozada, who announced she would not return to Basketball Wives earlier in the year, will indeed return for a fourth season. VH1 enticed to come back with a hefty raise and her own show that will also star her fiance Chad Ochocinco.

TMZ reports:

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.

Things are looking up for Lozada who signed a six-figure deal to develop books and films with Cash Money Content, a book publishing division of the record label Cash Money Records earlier this month. She will co-author a series of books called “The Wives Association” with former Law & Order: Criminal Intent writer Courtney Parker. The books will be loosely based on her life and what she’s learned dating professional athletes.
