Over the last several weeks, there has been tons of controversy surrounding VH1’s hit reality show Basketball Wives. It has been reported that several sponsors have decided to pull their ads that air during the show, and a woman named Alexis M. has gone as far as creating a petition to stop the filming of BBW. Now her goal is to try and shut down the spin off Ev and Ocho.
Despite all the negative press, Evelyn Lozada and her soon-to-be hubby Ochocinco were spotted in Miami over the weekend filming scenes for their upcoming show that is scheduled to debut this coming September. Evelyn recently took to the VH1 blogs and addressed the unnecessary drama displayed on the ladies trip to Tahiti:
Last night’s episode was a whirlwind of emotions for everyone. It’s such a sensitive subject for me because I honestly see it from both sides. I’m not here to condemn or condone anyone especially given some of my choices this season, however I will say that once again last night’s episode and all that happened forced me to look at and examine myself in ways that I haven’t in the past. No matter what the situation is, I’m realizing that we as grown women are allowing ourselves to be placed in a position for judgment. I’m confident that I speak for many of us on the show that when it comes to creating a better balance for television, we are all working very hard to do just that. Many of us are getting help for our inner issues and striving to portray a more positive image overall.
Tahiti was just an example of all of us being a true work in progress…Hang in there with us, as we vow to grow and become better!
