“Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada and Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford welcomed son Carl Leo into the world Saturday and talk show host Wendy Williams was quick to make the child’s birth a “Hot Topic,” calling him a “cash register.”
“I want to congratulate Evelyn Lozada. Evelyn gave birth to a cash register, I mean, a baby boy, with her fiancé, the $142 million Carl Crawford,” Williams told the audience. “I didn’t mean to make that cash register joke, but you see why it’s easy to be said. Evelyn girl, congratulations. “And Carl, Carl like a lot of sports players and a lot of artists, he’s not a bad-looking man, but he certainly wasn’t getting the likes of an Evelyn Lozada if he wasn’t playing baseball. … Evelyn you get yourself a little apron and a little Epsom salt to make sure your man’s joint are all taken care of, and take care of your cash register.”
Lozada responded to Williams’ disrespectful statements via both Facebook and Twitter: You know @WendyWilliams, I never bother anyone. I even bought you a beautiful bouquet of flowers congratulating your broadway debut… Since you want me to open Dulce in LA, maybe your man can come to that store and purchase shoes for another woman like he did at my Miami store. Bloop! Oh…BTW…he purchased the Casadei suede over the knee boots triple platform just in case you wanted to know. #DontComeForMe#INeverBotherU #NowPutThatOnHotTopics
Williams has yet to respond to Lozada’s statement.
