Here are the details:
Evelyn Lozada, star of VH1’s #1 Hit Reality Series, “Basketball Wives” which is set for an explosive fourth season, has just signed a multi-platform six-figure deal with Cash Money Content for literary and feature film projects, it was announced by Tracy Christian of Don Buchwald/Fortitude. Music moguls Bryan “Baby” Williams and his brother Ronald “Slim” Williams are founders & CEO’s of Cash Money Content the publishers that are overseeing the book deal.
The first of the projects is Evelyn’s book series, “The Wives Association,” co-authored by novelist and former Law & Order: Criminal Intent writer, Courtney Parker, which will follow Evelyn’s alter ego, character Eve Inez-Landon and will fictionalize aspects of real life events that have come from years of dating a professional athlete.
Although the books are not considered “tell-alls”, Evelyn reveals they will be an exciting mix of her own experiences and that of other athlete wives and girlfriends. “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,” said Evelyn.
“We will support Evelyn’s project, 100%,” said Cash Money Founder and CEO, Williams. Cash Money Records is a legendary record company whose label has grown into a multi-million dollar urban empire and is considered the most successful independent record label in America as well as an enduring global street brand.
“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.”
LOL @ “Our brands together will be magical”… We wonder how much of a cut her co-author is getting. Probably not much if Ev is talking that “brand” yang.
