Evelyn Lozada will be returning to her reality TV roots on “Basketball Wives LA” and may be replacing Tamar Braxton’s vacant seat on “The Real,” a rep for the reality star confirmed to theGrio.com.
Lozada will be testing her co-hosting chops with the ladies of “The Real” Dec. 5-9. The opportunity could very well land her a full-time gig on the daytime talk show, a year after Braxton was abruptly fired at the end of its second season.
The show is currently welcoming celebrity guests to “The Real” roundtable as it presumably searches for a permanent co-host.
Lozada, 40, who gained notoriety on BBW as an original cast member, makes her return to the VH1 show three years after the Miami franchise went off air. She later appeared on “Iyanla: Fix My Life” and starred in her own reality show, “Livin’ Lozada,” on the OWN Network.
She joins old castmates Shaunie O’Neal and Tami Roman, as well as “Basketball Wives LA” veteran Jackie Christie. According to TMZ, Aja Metoyer, who has a 3-year-old child with Dwyane Wade; and Keonna Green, the baby’s mother to NBA star Nick Young, will also be joining the cast.
Metoyer was at the center of controversy after she gave birth to Wade’s son during his reported “break” with now-wife Gabrielle Union.
