Reality superstar, Evelyn Lozada, of VH-1’s #1 hit reality series, “Basketball Wives” which has just been renewed for an explosive fifth season, is preparing for the June 12th release of her debut novel The Wives Association: Inner Circle. The novel will be the first release from her multi-platform deal with Cash Money Content, the publishing arm of record label Cash Money Records, home to multi-platinum artists Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Drake.
Although Inner Circle is not considered a “tell-all,” Evelyn reveals that the stories are based on some of her own experiences and that of other athlete wives and girlfriends. “People think that the life of an athlete’s wife is just all glitz and glam, but Inner Circle gives you a glimpse at the truth of the matter in a very raw yet entertaining way. I promise every chapter will leave you wondering where the reality ends and the fiction begins,” said Evelyn.
“We will support Evelyn’s project 100%” said Cash Money Records and Cash Money Content co-founder Bryan “Birdman” Williams. “By partnering with Birdman and Cash Money Content, we have the potential to turn these novels into a full-fledged brand.”
In addition to “Basketball Wives,” Evelyn is currently filming her new VH1 spin-off show, “Ev and Ocho” with fiance’ and New England Patriots Wide-Receiver, Chad Ochocinco. Together, the couple has over 5 million Twitter followers and over 2 million Facebook friends, pegging Lozada, “social media royalty,”- according to The Hollywood Reporter.
When not filming, Lozada focuses on building her businesses – E by Evelyn Cosmetics, Evelyn’s Closets and her E-Jewelry collection. She resides in Miami and is a devoted mother. Inner Circle is her first novel.
