It’s certain that Basketball Wives Evelyn Lozada was created for this celebrity lifestyle. While many reality stars fade into the shadows of D-list fame, this feisty Latina from New York’s gritty Bronx borough has expanded her TV limelight into a book deal (“Inner Circle: The Wives Association”), a spin-off show (Ev & Chad) and one million Twitter followers. The first-time author is weeks away from releasing her Courtney Parker-assisted novel, which you can officially cop on June 12.
In the meantime, bottle-wielding Ev is calm, spending her time vacaying in Cabo, loving on fiance Chad Ochocinco and planning her much-anticipated wedding (and wedding special). As our Guest Editor for the day, she talks us through the controversial BBW season finale, why she has such a respect for strippers and her thoughts on Rihanna‘s wild ways. –Niki McGloster
