Basketball Wives Evelyn Lozada 'Corrects' Gloria Govan's 'I AM the Show' Claim

Govan says she makes Basketball Wives LAEvelyn Lozada took to Twitter last night during the airing of the Basketball Wives LA reunion to ‘correct’ Gloria Govan’s claim that she is the real reason the show exists. In her tweet, Lozada said, “I just need to make something CLEAR! It is because of @ShaunieONeal creating BBW Miami, Shed Media & @VH1 that there is a “SPIN-OFF”#CarryOn I usually don’t comment & stay in my lane, but the truth is the truth! SMH.” The former Mrs. Chad Johnson certainly did not stay in her lane and made sure that the Twitter-verse knew just why Basketball Wives LA was created.

Shaunie O’Neal, the show’s creator and executive producer, had this to say in response to Lozada’s tweet. “Thank u Boo! I’ve been telling myself 2 put the phone down#iwontaddresstrash lol.” Ouch. Apparently Lozada has O’Neal’s back, even after the recent threat that she wouldn’t return to the show unless she received a hefty raise.

The real question is: Why did both women get so upset that Govan stated what some fans think is the truth?

For those who don’t follow the Vh1 series, Basketball Wives began in Miami with Gloria, along with Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O’Neal, as one of the original cast members. Her then-fiance Matt Barnes was traded to the LA Lakers and Ms. O’Neal cast Govan as one of the lead women to headline the Basketball Wives LA franchise. Despite their differences, Shaunie had to think Govan would make good TV so she cast her. Maybe fans would have watched if she was not on the show, but it’s reasonable that Govan would think her claim is at least partly true.

The new Mrs. Matt Barnes made the inflammatory statement last night during part one of the Basketball Wives LA reunion show. Govan made the comment after another cast member, Bambi, explained her fabulous-ness (for what seemed like the millionth time last night) and justified why she should be on the show. If one of the cast members thought Gloria’s comment was untrue or out of line, they certainly didn’t speak up. Outside of a few audience hecklers, the set practically fell pin-drop silent when Govan basically said, “If if weren’t for me, Basketball Wives LA wouldn’t exist.”

Basketball Wives Bambi confront Gloria GovanThe younger Govan hasn’t been on the show much these days and her on-screen nemesis Bambi, (doing her best impression of Hottie from Flava of Love), did her best to remind her of that. In one of the final scenes, Bambi took a shot at Gloria, saying that she was boring and that’s why she’s not more included in the filming. Gloria remained defiant during the entire exchange.

Gloria wasn’t well-liked on the original Basketball Wives and it seems she’s making no friends on her spin-off show Basketball Wives LA. It was rumored that she, along with several other cast members, were set to be released from the show to make room for new, more exciting cast members. That rumor was spurred on, in part, Govan’s decision not to include the Vh1 camera crew during her wedding to Matt Barnes. The couple wanted it to be a private moment, sans camera crews, and they made it happen. Some fans were upset by that, but others (including myself) think she has the right to keep certain areas of her life private; especially when her relationship has been held to public scrutiny in the past years.

The whole Bambi vs Gloria feud will continue next week on part two of the Basketball Wives LA reunion show. In the meantime, are you team Bambi, team Gloria or team “Cancel Basketball Wives LA”?

    Please get rid of bnth the Govans. I agree with Shaunie they are both just trash. And the show would be better if they took the garbage out.

  2. Evelyn needs to worry about her and her current issues with Chad…HOES…LOL.

  3. Debbie Singleton says:

    I like Gloria Govan….. no bad comments wht need not happen is Bambi don't need to return…. she is waste of space..

  4. I am team "CANCEL THIS DAMN SHOW". Sick of these RATS on TV…put something on that is of substance…not all this fuckery that is on TV…Bambi…you are a hot mess…yo friend M is a punk so that is WHY you are on the show…you call G a hoe but you are the biggest one on the show…that is WHY you on Barron D's dick to get yo lame ass rap career off the floor where it is going to stay you trash RAT…Go learn how to speak and most importantly STOP lookin like Marlon and Shawn Wayans from WHITE CHICKS"….bitch…LOL from team cut this fucking show…

    • Watch housewives of Atlanta.

    • you start off saying you would like to see something of substance and go straight into a comment about someone appearance. Before you request substance from a tv network, try practicing it at home first. Your comments sound personal as if you are one of Bambi's personalized haters or one of Gloria's designated dick riders. either way, have a seat

    • Lesha Graham says:

      What the fuck you care about my comments…Bitch you do not know me to talk anything about what I need to do in my home first off……RETARD…Bitch don't respond to anything I post if it is not concerning you…you are a hater and a dick rider BITCH…Elle Oh

    • Lesha Graham says:

      Do bro and love it…just not feelin KIM Yeah she gone now just want to see Kenya get the boot.

  5. Bambi need to go… How long has she been a rapper? She nor Jackie can rap, get a life……

  6. Its something about Gloria Govan's condescending attitude that makes me sick to my stomach. She's not fooling me one bit, from the pounds of makeup (that still don't hide her horrendous bags) to her little preppy (practiced) accent. All I see is a lil mexican girl that met a tall boy. Now she's "accomplished"….gimme a break! I bet Bambi has more depth in her pinky finger than Gloria. Gloria, Laura, and Brooke need to sign up for self-esteem, bc I see insecurity all up and through the three.

  7. Evelyn is right because if it wasn't for Shaunie she would not have that show. I think that her head is getting really big. They need to kick her non factor a__ off the show because she really is boring.

    • Lesha Graham says:

      Just remeber the mess around the show starting in LA(Go back and do some internet research)…Shaunie did not want the show in LA to happen at first…
