She’s About That Life: Evelyn Lozada Announces New OWN Series, “Evelyn”
Last month we reported that Evelyn Lozada wasn’t interested in returning to the Basketball Wives franchise. She shared with fans via Twitter that the series was no longer a good fit for her life and that she was moving on to bigger and better things. Today we’ve learned what one of those bigger and better things is: Lozada has found a new TV home at the Oprah Winfrey Network. With the help of her family, Lozada will debut a new reality show, currently titled Evelyn.
Slated for a July premiere, Evelyn will revolve around Lozada’s balancing act of mother to a 21-year-old model/college student and 1-year-old. Viewers will also see how Lozada’s relationship with fiancé, Carl Crawford, plays out. The Wrap shared OWN’s description of the show and it reads as follows:
“Evelyn” (working title) follows the lives of Evelyn Lozada, of “Basketball Wives” fame, and her 21-year-old daughter Shaniece. Evelyn is engaged to big league baseball player Carl Crawford and the couple just welcomed their first child, Carl Leo Jr., to the family last March. Between learning to be a mom all over again, setting up a new home in Los Angeles for her and her family, running several businesses as well as dealing with issues surrounding her family back East… Evelyn has a lot going on! Not to be outdone, her daughter Shaniece’s modeling career is taking off resulting in a flood of business opportunities with no clear choice of which to pursue, leaning on her mom for advice which she (sometimes) takes. Each episode is filled with close friends and relatives in the ladies’ lives who help round out a world filled with laughter, support, encouragement and tears as we follow Shaniece carving out the new life before her and Evelyn finally feeling like she has the life she deserves.
Evelyn will be produced by Shed Media, the same media company who produced Basketball Wives on VH1.
