Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada's friendship was considered a strong bond during the early seasons of the show before the dramatic episodes, which showed their dismantling friendship. However, their relationship took a big blow in season 4 and has never remained the same. Jennifer shared the current footing of their relationship in a recent interview.
'We're Cordial': 'Basketball Wives' Jennifer Williams Talks Friendship With Evelyn Lozada
No Longer Best Friends
The fact that their decade-old friendship was unraveled on television was heartbreaking to Williams. The drama between them happened in season 3 of the Miami franchise when she was in the middle of a divorce with her ex, Eric Williams. In a recent interview with VH1, Williams talked about how deeply rooted their friendship was only for them to have "really horrible arguments on camera." Though some resolutions were made, she gave a clear view of where their friendship stands, "Evelyn and I are cool. I would not say we are best friends. But we're cordial."
Initial Intention To Keep Friendship Off The Table
Initially, the 46-year-old actress had no intention of reconciling with her former BFF. She said the damage made was too much to even consider them being friends again. In an Instagram live video with RHOA producer Carlos King, Jennifer said, "I don't want her in my world." She went further, "I don't want the energy… as Nene Leakes would say, 'The door is closed.'" She also felt a friendship with Lozada would be difficult as a result of the conspiracy against their friendship by her co-stars.
