Evelyn Lozada And Star Jones End Beef

These women today!  WhenEvelyn Lozada  And Star Jones have beef there’s something wrong.  But whatever it was, kudos to the Basketball Wives cast member for having enough sense to be respectful and apologize to her elders.

According to NecoleBitchie

 Star Jones may not be tuning in to Basketball Wives anytime soon but at least she and Evelyn Lozada aren’t beefing anymore. A few weeks ago, Star took to her twitter to express how disgusted she was with the show and encouraged her followers to take a stand and sign a petition to get the show off of the air. When Evelyn covered Vibe magazine’s recent Sexy Issue with Love & Hip Hop’s Chrissy Lampkin,’ Tamar Braxton from ‘Braxton Family Values’ and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss, she was asked about Star’s boycott and reportedly cracked up laughing before saying that nobody was checking for Star.

Friends fear the worst as Star Jones goes ham for food again, packing on the pounds and reportedly eating over 5,000 calories a day after facing a crushing emotional set back with her boyfriend.

Al Reynolds isn’t playing any games out here. He’s gonna get his money no matter how he has to…even if that means showing up to his ex-wife’s book signing and serving her with court papers. To say that Star was pissed would be an understatement. Apparently, Reynolds went out of his way to serve Star the papers because she broke an agreement between the two of them to not make “disparaging remarks” about each other. Al wants $50,000 from Star all because she said that their marriage was “kind of booty” during an interview with Wendy Williams in March. Supposedly he had been having a rough time getting in contact with her because she has been super busy promoting her book Satan’s Sisters. I guess he figured that he’d catch her at work. Do you think Al Reynolds was out of order for doing this to Star? What would you have done if you were Star?
