BW Star Evelyn Lozada Considers OG Restraining Order after Reunion Taping Meltdown: Report
Amidst petitions to have her taken off the show, “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada is reportedly considering a restraining order against her co-star Ogom "OG" Chijindu.
According to reports, Lozada began looking into the restraining order after OG’s reunion taping meltdown and the aftermath.
Sources reportedly close to Lozada gave The Blast a rundown of the explosive situation that played out during last week’s taping of BW’s season eight reunion.
The production crew allegedly created two sets to keep apart feuding ladies, but one was more prominent than the other. Executive producer and star Shaunie O'Neal, and her BFF Lozada were among those on the main set while the smaller set was for Tami Roman, Cece Gutierrez, and Ogum "OG" Chijindu.
OG, however, was reportedly not impressed with the arrangement and according to The Blast’s sources, "lost it" and went off on production and cast members because she wasn’t seated at the main stage.
Still To Come: Lozada deleted the controversial "monkey" post and is now reportedly thinking
The reality star initially refused to tape the reunion but eventually did after seeing the show was going to go on without her.
Following the reunion, OG reportedly took to social media to vent, calling out what she felt was partial treatment and throwing shade specifically at Lozada.
OG, concluding that Lozada was racist, went off on her co-star, calling her unprintable names and even promoting a petition by fans asking that Lozada be fired from "Basketball Wives."
"Regardless of being black, white, skinny, fat, diabetic, gay, lesbian, transgender, Asian. …It’s unacceptable to make fun of someone because of these things"
Lozada deleted the controversial "monkey" post and is now reportedly thinking of getting a restraining order against OG because she’s concerned about the latter’s "mental state."
Sources further told The Blast that OG's posts are harassing Lozada and encouraging other fans to do the same. The insiders also believe OG is planting false stories in the press about Lozada.
Meanwhile, Lozada herself is facing backlash from "Basketball Wives" fans after hurling a racial slur at co-star CeCe Gutierrez. The petition mentioned earlier asks that Lozada be relieved "of Her Services from Basketball Wives," per The Grio.
During a heated back-and-forth, Lozada had referred to Gutierrez as "Lee Lee," an insulting reference to the latter’s heritage.
the petition further stated: "This racial comment 'slur' is unacceptable, especially from a show with a majority female and minority cast."
"Regardless of being black, white, skinny, fat, diabetic, gay, lesbian, transgender, Asian. …It’s unacceptable to make fun of someone because of these things," it added.
