News of Evelyn Lozada’s pregnancy took the internet by storm considering she just came out of a very public,very nasty divorce from Chad “OchoCinco” Johnson. Naturally, folks were very curious about who the father was. We all breathed a collective sigh of relief when we realized this child isn’t Chad’s baby. Evelyn announced recently in an interview with OMG Insider that major league baseball player Carl Crawford, of the LA Dodgers, is the baby’s father.
But recent rumors have us wondering if Lozada didn’t jump right into another shady situation with another shady man.
Once Crawford’s name got out people started doing their research. And now, several reports are claiming that Crawford just had a baby this summer with a woman named Amy Freeman. Well people can say whatever they want. Folks love mess and you can’t believe everything you read.
So this alleged baby is 5 months old now and Evelyn is six months pregnant. Either the whole thing is false and Crawford and Freeman didn’t have a baby together, they had broken up before she gave birth–doubtful– or… Crawford was probably sleeping with both women at the same time. After all, Lozada says that she and Crawford have been dating for almost year now.
But right now all of this is speculation. We’re just hoping Evelyn is not into some more mess with another wayward athlete.
We’ll keep you informed. But until then, what do you make of all this?
So after much speculation and murmuring, Evelyn Lozada has admitted that her child’s father is Los Angeles Dodgers star Carl Crawford.
Lozada seems to be on the media circuit to discuss her pregnancy. She first admitted she was pregnant to PEOPLE, then she spoke a bit more in detail about how she’s feeling to Hollywood Life, and now she’s discussing what’s next with OMG! Insider.
In an interview airing this Monday, Lozada told host Nina Parker that Crawford is her child’s father and says she’s in love with him. But, don’t expect them to be exchanging vows anytime soon.
“I definitely would get married again. I still believe in love … I’m not one of those people that’s like ‘we need to get engaged, we need to get married.’ No, absolutely not. I feel like that’s going to come, just like with the baby, let it come. I’m not forcing anything, so if it happens, it happens.”
Somehow, this isn’t very surprising. First of all, Lozada and Crawford haven’t been together that long and further, Evelyn not too long ago finalized her divorce from Chad Johnson.
Well, now we know she’s pregnant, she’s happy and who the father is…from three different interviews with three different sources. We should expect to hear the sex of the baby from another source within the next couple of months.
Oh and in case you’re wondering, Evelyn Lozada absolutely would do a reality show chronicling her “new life” if the right opportunity presented itself.
Last week we made the shocking announcement that former Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada is six months pregnant with her second child. The 37-year-old mom-to-be confirmed the news to People magazine.
“I am so excited to announce a wonderful blessing — I’m pregnant!” Evelyn exclaimed.
“I’m excited about being a mommy all over again. This is something I’ve been wanting for years and I can’t believe it’s finally happening,” she continued.
Evelyn has not been at all shy in the past about her desire to have more children. In a recent interview with Hollywood Life, Ev continued to express joy over her upcoming birth and credited her pregnancy for helping her to reach a state of “bliss.”
“This is a very exciting and special moment for me, a true blessing and I’m thankful for the outpouring of love from everyone,” said Evelyn.
”I’m in bliss and finally truly happy,” she continued.
The father of Evelyn’s baby still remains a mystery, but we’re guessing that his identity will be revealed in the coming months. Whoever he is, it has been made quite clear that Evelyn’s ex-husband, Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, is not the father. He did, however, comment on his ex-wife’s big news.
“[I'm] super happy for her, I will always love her and wish her nothing but the best. I have unisex Louboutin infant spikes ready as my gift,” he said.
Everyone seems to be in a good place, which is great. Bringing a child into a chaotic environment is never a good thing.

Celebrities are often paid thousands of dollars to lend their notable faces for the endorsement of popular products and beauty services, but these business-minded beauties have decided to go after much larger pieces of the pie by going into business for themselves and establishing their own product lines and brands.
“The Father Doesn’t Matter, I Just Need To Style And Dress The Baby”: Chad Johnson On Evelyn’s Pregnancy
This past weekend, we reported Basketball Wives reality star Evelyn Lozada is pregnant with her second child. As fans and celebrities alike poured out their excitement and congratulatory messages, a surprising person could not contain how happy he was for Lozada! You know who it is.
Chad Johnson, Evelyn’s ex-husband, wished her well and had this to say to TMZ Sports:
“[I'm] super happy for her, I will always love her and wish her nothing but the best. I have unisex Louboutin infant spikes ready as my gift.”
Despite their marriage dissolving due to a domestic violence incident in 2012, Johnson still believes he needs to “style and dress the baby” although he has had no real communication with Lozada within over a year–or at least, that we know of…
“No communication with her in over a year and the father doesn’t matter, I just need to style and dress the baby.”
While I doubt Lozada will be as excited about him sending her baby lavish gifts, it’s not the first time Johnson has tried to enter Lozada’s life again. Oh Chad, you’re always doing the most.
You know who has no problem getting and keeping a man? Evelyn Lozada.
The woman, whose frosty stare could turn even the most warm-blooded heart cold and who has scrapped with and thrown under the bus almost every single cast member of Basketball Wives Miami can’t seem to keep the menfolk away. They love her enough to want to date her. They love her enough to put a ring on it. They love her enough to put a baby in it too.
But according to most folks, nobody wants a crazy witch of a woman. Men say they don’t like loud chicks or women who have no home-training. They’re not into girls that fight, throw tantrums or make crazy demands. Matter of fact, being a witch of a woman is the number one reason why single women aren’t married according to this widely-circulated article from 2011 by television writer Tracy McMillan:
You’re a B**ch
Here’s what I mean by b**ch. I mean you’re angry. You probably don’t think you’re angry. You think you’re super smart, or if you’ve been to a lot of therapy, that you’re setting boundaries. But the truth is you’re pissed. At your mom. At the military-industrial complex. At Sarah Palin. And it’s scaring men off. The deal is: most men just want to marry someone, who is nice to them…
And yet, Lozada and her behavior continue to defy the odds. And it is not just Lozada, as many other designated witches, both on television and in real life, have little problem attracting members of the opposite sex in spite of their b***hiness. Like those “associates” we have, who on paper should be considered undateable. And by “on paper,” I mean popular opinion, including those “Men Don’t Date/Marry These Type of Women” lists, written mostly by men (or at the very least from a male’s perspective), which have become so popular on the Internet as of late. On paper, homegirl is the epitome of the selfish, shallow, eye-rolling, uncultured, always-with-an-attitude type of woman that is supposed to be an instant turnoff. However, everywhere you guys go, and more importantly, no matter the caliber of male company you happen to be in, the menfolk always seem to gravitate towards her neck-rolling, eyebrow arching, nasty attitude and she-devil persona. Even more curious, they are not just interested in her for the night, but most times they stick around as boyfriends, and one or two (sometimes more) actually stay around to become husbands.
Meanwhile, you, the proverbial nice, polite and well-mannered girl, continue to leave that same meat market sausage free. Even with your even-keeled, compromising temperament, which all the boys like enough to call and burden you with their troubles but not enough to date, it is you (and not her), who still end up alone in your place, eating half-warm Lean Cuisine and watching marathons of Extreme Hoarders: Animal Edition on Netflix. You do all this while you continuously wait for the right one to come along and acknowledge your good girl ways. Around the sixth episode of watching animal control workers in Hazmat suits pull the umpteenth mange-having, one-eyed cat from some old lady’s ceiling, you begin to shake your head at the prospects of your life and ponder to yourself why being oh so nice and all the respectfulness has yet to pay off. Do men like just like mean girls more?
I haven’t read the full book, so I won’t co-sign it in its entirety, but this excerpt from Why Men Marry B***hes, which appeared on the “Today” show’s website, speaks to one of the reasons why I think this happens. According to Sherry Argov, the author of the book, while the so-called sage wisdom, usually given by well-meaning friends, family, clergy, and yes, magazine advice columnists, might instruct women to act like Cheshire Cat-smiling servant for men, the reality is that men are into women who have no fear in being themselves and more importantly, demanding whatever it is they want out of life. As for all the eager to please ladyfolk, they end up coming off as desperate. Argov writes:
“It’s human nature. Telling a woman to work harder to please is like telling a little kid to walk up to a schoolyard bully on the first day of school and say, “Here, take my lunch money. And you can have my cupcakes too. I’ll even throw in my lunchbox since you don’t have one.” Or, in a dating situation, “Here, take my body. And I made you a cake. Please be nice. Please marry me. I’ll even jack my butt up nice and high like they do in yoga. It’s so comfortable being upside down. Really. I just love it!”Just because a man sleeps with you doesn’t mean he’s thinking about the future. For him to think about forever, there has to be something he respects within you. Like a strong wit … and a strong mind.
In short, confidence. And it takes confidence to be a woman like Lozada. Folks tend to get it twisted and instantly think every woman who is obnoxious, demanding or uncaring about the general public’s perception of them are all grappling with low self-esteem. In some respects this is true, however, in some other instances, those women just tend to think very highly of themselves. And as with anyone who holds themselves to a certain regard, some b***hy mean girls are more likely to brim with the type of self-assurance needed to whitewash whatever character flaws they might have into something more interesting and alluring.
Now, I don’t say this as a way of leading all you good girls astray into believing that you must start hopping over tables and snatching folks up, a la Lozada, to snag a man. But rather, I say all this to cosign something that we always suspected to be true: h**s and witches stay winning. And they stay winning because they act like winners. Why shouldn’t they? Men, who it seems never have to grapple with worrying if their behaviors make them dateable, have been overselling their value for years…
Well folks, it looks like former Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada may be expecting more than just a potential reality TV spin-off show. According to TMZ, the 37-year-old Broolyn-born entrepreneur is pregnant with her second child!
Though these reports have yet to be officially confirmed or denied by Evelyn and her reps, a source who claims to be a close friend of Lozada is saying that she is six months into her pregnancy. The source went on to say that the pregnancy was planned and that the father is actually someone who Ev has been seeing for almost a year, adding that things have gotten pretty serious between the pair. The snitch did not reveal who the mystery man is, but if we had to take a random guess, we’d say it might be L.A. Dodgers player Carl Crawford. The two were spotted together earlier this year and were rumored to be be dating. Of course at this point, this is all pure speculation, but we’re pretty sure the entire story will be revealed in no time.
While a confirmed pregnancy would be major news, I can’t say that it’s all that shocking, as Ev has been pretty vocal in past seasons of Basketball Wives about her desire to have more children. If you recall, she and ex-husband, Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, spoke about having twins at some point in their marriage, but unfortunately, things didn’t work out. We’ll certainly keep you posted as this story develops. And if the rumors are in fact true, congrats Ev!

‘What Happened To Young People Wanting To Be Doctors?’ Jennifer Williams Talks Reality TV’s Impact On The Youth
One of the ironic things about reality TV is that a lot of it isn’t real. But the chances of you hearing that come out of the mouth of an actual reality star are pretty slim. Former Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams, however, doesn’t appear to be your typical reality star. Though she is currently collaborating with Mona Scott-Young for a new series, she recently made an effort to remind people that reality TV isn’t all that real.
“People see these shows and what’s on TV and a lot of times they look at it like…people want to be famous. They see some form of glitz or glamor whatever it is that they might be attracted to. It’s produced,” she told T.D. Jakes during her recent appearance on Mind, Body and Soul.
The Lucid Cosmetics founder also opened up about reality TV’s influence on America’s youth.
“I’ve heard so many young children say that they want to be on reality TV when they grow up. What happened to young people wanting to be doctors and lawyers and just professionals?”
She challenged those vying for coveted spots on popular reality shows to think about what they would do with the fame if afforded the opportunity.
“What are you going to use the platform to do? I think that’s an important question that you need to ask yourself.”
“You need to be a part of your image and what’s being out there, whether it’s producing or owning whatever is being put out there. We have a lot of young people who watch TV and they’re very impressionable. The images they receive are from media or they’re from social networking sites. I think it’s very important to put out a positive image.”
Watch a clip from Jen’s interview on the next page. Thoughts?
Evelyn Lozada recently opened up to OK! Magazine about her desire for sincere friendship. The hot-blooded reality star expressed that although she has plenty of superficial part-time friends, she’s at a point in her life where she just wants solid friendships.
“The only one that I’m friends with is Shaunie [O’Neal]. I may talk to Suzie [Ketcham] from time to time. I don’t tell her any secrets or anything like that. I’m just at a point in my life where I just really want real friends. I don’t want the fake, part-time friends. I’m too grown for that.”
Many of you got a kick out of her statement. And honestly, I can’t blame you. I mean, it’s pretty ironic that the ring leader of the mean girls, who acted as the gatekeeper of “the circle,” constantly dictating who was in and who was out, all of a sudden wants real friends. Though I was thoroughly amused by the irony of it all, in the same breath, I have to confess that I also understood where she was coming from. As women, our lives are filled with plenty of acquaintances and whether we want to admit it or not, many of us are unknowingly a part of numerous social circles. We have our work “friends,” our neighborhood “friends,” our college “friends,” our church “friends” and so on. Often times, it’s not until we’re really going through something, until we really need someone to confide in, until we need a sincere ear to listen to our problems without passing judgement on us, do we realize that although we’re constantly surrounded by these female acquaintances, very rarely can we actually call any of them friends and really mean it.
If I can compare Evelyn’s mirage of friends to anything in my own life, it would unfortunately have to be my “church friends.” We worship together. We fellowship with one another. We pray together. We support each other. Genuinely. But when I found myself dealing with some serious challenges in my life–you know, those real life-altering challenges that only sincere, unconditional love and support can help you to get through–I came to the sad realization that I wasn’t 100 percent comfortable with completely opening up to any of them. There I was, just like Evelyn, with this massive social circle and unable to call on one solid friend in my time of need. This certainly is not to say that there’s anything wrong with these women, it’s just that true friendship is indeed hard to come by. It’s not something that can be forced, rushed or summoned. So when Evelyn says that she’s ready for real friends, I get it.
I remember being about 8 years old and bragging to my mother about how many best friends I had. I’d named at least 10 girls from my fourth grade class before my mother began laughing to herself. You know, that kind of laugh older women do as if to say, “Child, you have a lot to learn.” I stopped mid-sentence and looked at her, wondering what was so funny. She simply responded that I’d be lucky if I have two good friends by the time I left college. I didn’t get it then, but I certainly understand it now.
Alex Lickerman of Psychology Today compares true friendship to romantic attraction. Though common interests, values, history, commitment, principles and equality are crucial to setting the groundwork for solid friendships, there’s an additional unknown factor that seems to hold these bonds together.
“Of course, we may have friends who fit all these criteria and still don’t quite feel kenzoku (A Japanese term that suggests a bond between people who’ve made a similar commitment and who possibly therefore share a similar destiny. It implies the presence of the deepest connection of, of lives lived as comrades from the distant past). There still seems to be an extra factor, an attraction similar to that which draws people together romantically, that cements friends together irrevocably, often immediately, for no reason either person can identify. But when you find these people, these kenzoku, they’re like priceless gems. They’re like finding home,” Alex wrote.
In this way, I don’t think any of us are that different from Evelyn. Those of us who have been blessed with real friends more than likely cherish them and those of us who don’t have them would like to (even though we may not always like to admit it). And while these bonds can’t be forced, as Alex notes, we can prepare for them by first becoming true friends ourselves.
How many true friends have you been blessed with? What makes those friendships different from your other relationships?
