Evelyn Lozada is the kind of chick who loves when people create petitions about her and make her the face of internet boycotts.

While the VH1 publicity machine continues to make their rounds by making more empty promises of a more positive upcoming season of Basketball Wives; everybody with a brain knows better. And it’s not because we’re jealous that former Basketball groupies are getting checks from acting ratchet on television; but it’s just the we understand that money is the only reason any sane grown woman refuses to walk away from the reality train-wreck.A couple advertisers won’t speak for the rest, and this is exactly why another season of Basketball Wives has already been green-lighted for another season; and why Evelyn and Chad are already being followed by a film crew for her spin off show.
Money talks and too many people are benefiting from the hot ass mess that comes on every Monday night and draws in millions of viewers.
Despite the interesting talk bytes from Evelyn Lozada regarding wanting to show a more positive side on Basketball Wives; Evelyn actually enjoys causing a little more controversy, in fact, the chick absolutely loves it.
In the era of gossip blogs, Evelyn has taken her notes, and gets how all of this works. No drama, no press. No controversy, no blog time and no clicks. The worst she acts on television, the longer she can stretch out her 15 minutes of fame. Sure we could continue to boycott her, but the culture needs a reevaluation since we’ve created a climate that has made the people behind these antics successful.
And those pesky petitions don’t phase her. Her brand continues to expand while the protest continues. She doesn’t even think Star Jones is relevant enough to put a dagger in her career. In a recent interview with Vibe, Evelyn says the following about Star Jones and that internet petition thousands of you signed:
“I think she’s going to have to get a whole lot of names. Actually, I like the petition and I like the controversy because I’ve learned controversy is good. But I think she’s irrelevant. And she’s using our coattails to get relevant again. Nobody gives a f-ck about her.”
What a sad time for American Television. Like a roach infestation, looks like it will be hard to get rid of these reality television hood rats. A can of Raid, petitions and even boycotts can’t get rid of these terrible people.
