After years of bad blood and an ugly war of words, the queen of mean, Wendy Williams, and “Basketball Wives” bad girl Evelyn Lozada have finally made amends.
Williams invited Lozada on the show to discuss the season finale of BBW and her new jewelry line when Williams kicked off the convo with a formal apology.
“I wanted to apologize to you because I believe exactly what you said,” said Williams. “I didn’t mean anything, I just do hot topics. When I was doing the story I said ‘a walking cash register, ching ching’ and your feelings were hurt by that.”
Lozada thanked Williams for her apology, and surprisingly responded with one in return.
“I appreciate the apology and I am also sorry for how I handled that situation cause I know that you have a son and I wasn’t thinking about him with my comments,” said Lozada.
For those who may not know, back in 2014, Lozada had announced her pregnancy with baseball player Carl Thomas who had just signed a $142 million contract.
During her daily “Hot Topics” segment, Williams congratulated the couple and referred to the baby as a “cash register.”
“I want to congratulate Evelyn Lozada,” said Wendy. “Evelyn gave birth to a cash register, oops I mean baby boy with her fiancé, the $142 million Carl Crawford. I didn’t mean to make that cash register joke, but you see why it can be easily said. Evelyn girl, congratulations and Carl, like a lot of sports players and artists, he’s not a bad looking man but he certainly wasn’t getting the likes of Evelyn Lozada if he wasn’t playing baseball. Do you understand what I mean? She’s upgraded him and now that she’s had the baby, he’s upgrading her.”
When Lozada caught wind of the shade, she quickly clapped back and came with receipts about Williams’ philandering ex-husband, Kevin Hunter.
“Since u want me 2 open Dulce n L.A. maybe ur man can come 2 that store & purchase shoes 4 another woman like he did @ my Miami store,” tweeted Lozada.
Williams and Hunter went through a huge cheating scandal last year that was widely publicized and later shared in Williams’ Lifetime biopic.
While talking to Lozada, Williams admitted that she didn’t believe her at the time, but now knows that what Lozada said was the truth.
What a great way to end Women’s History Month. It’s great to see that these two women could put their differences aside.
