Basketball Wives will be missing a key component this season: a reunion show. Evelyn Lozada revealed on her Twitter account that there will not be a reunion show once season nine wraps.
On Twitter, one of her followers asked how many more episodes of Basketball Wives would there be before the reunion and Lozada responded with: “2 more episodes – No reunion” along with a praise hands emoji.
During the last episode of Basketball Wives that aired on March 16, Lozada and Shaunie O’Neal decided to leave the mini stay-cation early due to all of the tension and arguing amongst the ladies. Their exit was followed by Malaysia Pargo and Kristen Scott leaving as well. There are only two episodes left in the season.
Liza Morales, Lamar Odom’s Ex-Girlfriend, Joined Basketball Wives for Season 9
Liza Morales was the newbie this season on Basketball Wives. Morales, who shares two children with Lamar Odom, was in a relationship with the former Los Angeles Lakers player for over a decade. Their relationship crumbled after the loss of their third child, Jayden, that succumbed to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) in 2006 when he was six months old. Morales told Page Six that the grief caused the demise of their relationship.
“I realized I lost Lamar when our son Jayden passed away,” she said. “We grieved so differently.”
After their child’s death, Morales moved back to New York City to be close to family while Odom still played for the Los Angeles Lakers. She said while they were apart people began approaching her about Odom’s substance abuse.
“I started hearing a lot of rumblings,” she said. “People coming to me, knowing I am the mother of his kids, telling me, ‘I think you need to watch Lamar with the white stuff.’ So it was definitely in my head but I couldn’t worry about that. Like I just wanted to focus on me and this is why I stayed in New York.”
Morales said became very depressed for a few years after their son’s death and had to seek therapy.
“I was grieving. I was severely depressed for like two years, without knowing I was severely depressed. A lot of people don’t talk about that stuff. In my family and communities of color, we don’t talk about that stuff. So I finally got diagnosed after I went to a therapist.”
In 2009, Odom married Khloe Kardashian after dating her for a month, something Morales said was hurt by.
“It was hurtful at that time to learn of their marriage,” she said. “He was getting married and he told me in a text message. I’ve known you since I was 15; I deserve better than a text message.”
