"Basketball Wife" Evelyn Lozada Nabs Book & Film Deal...With Cash Money
Evelyn Lozada started taping "Basketball Wives: Miami" Season 4 today. And she's got some other big news too. She nabbed a 6-figure book and film deal with Cash Money Records' literary division called Cash Money Content.
Evelyn's putting all her baller dating stories to good use and making some cash off of them. She reportedly just signed a deal with Lil Wayne & Birdman's publishing division of Cash Money Records. Cash Money Content, which just kicked off this year, is in partnership with Atria Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. And they also focus on turning literary works into films.
So what's Evelyn going to be writing about? Her life as a baller girlfriend of course. Fictional novels based "loosely" on her life of dating professional athletes to be exact. And she's using the alter ego Eve Inez-Landon.
Her first literary work, according to the Hollywood Reporter, will be called The Wives Association. She loves that W word doesn't she? It'll be co-written by "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" writer Courtney Parker.
“The stories that you hear—what goes on in these relationships, and just being in that circle—I decided to let everyone experience a piece of it for themselves by writing this series of juicy novels.
By partnering with Baby and Cash Money Content, we have the potential to turn these ‘novels’ into a full-fledged brand,” Lozada explains. “Everything Baby and CMC touches turns to gold, and our brands together will be magical.”
Magical is one word for it.
