Evelyn Lozada Announces She’s Leaving ‘Basketball Wives’ After 9 Seasons!

Evelyn Lozada has officially confirmed that she is leaving Basketball Wives after nine seasons. 

On June 2, the OG cast member announced her exit from the VH1 hit reality series during a recent interview with E! News' Daily Pop. "I am no longer going to do Basketball Wives," Lozada told co-host Justin Sylvester. "I think that it's time for me to open up the universe to other things."

While Lozada admitted that it was a "hard decision" to walk away after nine seasons, in the end it came down to the "heavy" toll she felt doing the series. "It's not the most positive energy," Lozada explained, citing a difficult last few seasons. "Now I have a conscience about what I say and what I do and what my kids are going to see."

Lozada noted that her family felt "relief" with her leaving the series. "It's time, it's been time," she shared.

Lozada previously took time off from Basketball Wives to focus on OWN docu-series Livin' Lozada before returning full-time in 2017. 

"Going from OWN and going back to Basketball Wives, I was so far removed from this type of dynamic with the cast," Lozada confessed. "I did feel like I took a few steps backwards." 

Lozada reveals she has no plans to return to the show anytime soon. "I want to take all my energy out of it," she stated. Instead, she has her sights set on another series, perhaps even The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: "That's the only one I would probably do."
