Basketball Wives: Jennifer Williams Says Evelyn is Jealous, Lozada Says ‘She Will Never Be a White Girl’
Rucuss staffJanuary 27, 2012
A new season of Basketball Wives Miami premieres in February.
And what better way to gain some publicity for the show than with a little beef among cast members. Former best friends Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada are at each other’s throats. Well, more Lozada but the two are publicly speaking out about their failed friendship.
Jennifer feels Evelyn is jealous of her friends. While Evelyn hasn’t given a reason for the beef. She’s opted to call Jennifer names.
The ending of Evelyn and Jennifer’s friendship was all recorded for the new season of Basketball Wives. But we don’t have to wait that long to know details. Jennifer told Sister2Sister that Evelyn is upset because she’s friends with Nene Leakes and Mashonda.
Jennifer told Sister2Sister:
“Let me tell you what she’s mad over ‘cause this always comes up. She hates the fact that I’m really good friends with Nene [Leakes] and she hates the fact that me and Mashonda are good friends.
I feel like it’s all coming from a place of hurt, and she’s turning it into anger. Why do you care who I’m friends with? Like, that’s ridiculous,” Jen explains. “I live in New York. You live in Miami. I don’t care who you hang out with.
I’m kinda over it because I just feel like I’m at a point at my life where I’m trying to get rid of negative energy. To me, I feel like it’s something so minuscule. It’s not like I slept with Chad. It’s not something irreparable. It’s something stupid that you’re mad over. If you really are mad because I have other friends, I think that’s completely ridiculous.”
I don’t say anything to her, and she doesn’t say anything to me. I think it’s always unfortunate when you have so much history with a person for so long and then something stupid happens.
NeNe is such a good person. I don’t think you really find a lot of people in the same business that you bond with because I feel like everyone is so competitive and everybody is so worried about the next person doing more than them, and it’s not like that with her at all. She’s always trying to encourage me. She’s just always trying to uplift me, and I need people like that around me. I love that about her. There’s no jealousy. There’s no competition. We try to complement each other.
I don’t pick my friends based on if they’re on a TV show or what they do, if they’re a celebrity. [NeNe] and I have something in common, and the same with Mashonda. It’s a real friendship. We don’t have to tweet each other every day. It’s genuine. We really do have a friendship outside of TV and all this.
Evelyn was not happy when she heard about the interview. Instead of giving her side of the story she lashed out at Jennifer on Twitter. She called her names and accused her of wanting to be white. It only lasted a few tweets because her fiance Chad Ochocinco jumped in and told her to stop.
Wow! Can you say CHILDISH!!
