Reality star and boutique owner Evelyn Lozada will soon be adding author and film producer to her resume.
The “Basketball Wives” star has signed a six-figure book deal with Cash Money Content, the publishing division of Cash Money Records, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The book series, The Wives Association, will be loosely based on Evelyn’s life as the love interest of athletes such as Antoine Walker and Chad Ochocinco.
The catalyst for the novels will be Eve Inez-Landon, Evelyn’s fictional alter ego.
“The stories that you hear—what goes on in these relationships, and just being in the circle—I decided to let everyone experience a piece of it for themselves by writing this series of juicy novels,” Evelyn said.
Developing feature films is also a part of the partnership deal.
This could be good news for “Basketball Wives” stars Gloria Govan, Royce Reed, Tami Roman and Draya Michele, who have all expressed an interest in acting.
Evelyn, very much the entrepreneur, has high hopes for the deal.
“By partnering with Baby and Cash Money Content, we have the potential to turn these ‘novels’ into a full-fledged brand,” she said. “Everything Baby and CMC touches turns to gold, and our brands together will be magical.”
