Professional ball chaser Evelyn Lozada received a HUGE pay increase before she struck a deal with VH1 to stay on board for Season 3 of “Basketball Wives.” In fact, it’s being reported than Lozada more than DOUBLED her old salary.

Sources close to the production reveal that although Evelyn didn’t get the $20k per episode she demanded, she’s “very happy” with the counter-offer.

Not only did Ev get a pay bump — but Producers also APOLOGIZED to Lozada for the way she was portrayed in the Season 2 finale … a huge reason why Evelyn was hesitant to re-sign with the network.

Wonder how her fellow “slores” castmates are gonna feel about this. “Hoes Be Winning.”
