From biting words to flying bottles, there is no shortage of cat fights on VH1’s Basketball Wives, and now can exclusively reveal that some of this season’s arguments have a devastating effect on the relationships between the women.

“I think people will be surprised who remains friends at the end of the season, there are definitely a few shocks,” Evelyn Lozada told in an exclusive interview.

“There are people who you think are solid and who are no longer friends, there are definitely friendships that don't last, aside from mine with Jennifer.”

Someone that Evelyn has never been friends with is Kenya Bell, who she was seen throwing a bottle at in an explosive episode earlier this month.

While Lozada doesn’t regret the fight and what she said, she revealed she does feel bad about losing control. “I do regret throwing the bottle, Shaunie (O’Neal) was there, and her or one of my castmates could have been hurt. Things went too far and I will definitely apologize for that.

“I would have felt bad if Kenya had been hurt, she’s a mom with two children, so God forbid if she’d have been hurt, and I could have gone to jail!” she explained, adding: “My anger got the best of me with that.”

As previously reported, Lozada wasn’t a fan of Kenya from the get-go, and predicted at the beginning of the season that “her fakeness could definitely be Kenya’s demise.”

Spending more time with the new cast member certainly hasn’t changed her opinion, and just deepened her disdain. “There were a lot of things going on while the cameras were off as well as on. She was always stirring the pot behind the scenes and saying things to producers to be relevant on the show,” Evelyn revealed.

“It is hard for me to respect you when you are coming in and not being yourself. Her personality changes with whichever cast member she is with at the time filming.

“It is a strange relationship there, I don’t say friendship because we’re not friends,” she said, explaining that since their last face-off tensions have eased slightly at least.

“Now, we’re not best friends, but I don’t hate her either.”

Keeping Up With the Kardashians

She may not care about what Kenya thinks of her, but Evelyn does look up to a certain other curvaceous reality star and celebrity mogul, and was flattered to hear that she had been compared to Kim Kardashian.

“Being compared to her is pretty cool, from a professional and a business stand point it is a huge compliment,” Lozada, who recently launched her own make up line and is soon set to walk down the aisle with NFL star Chad Ochocinco, gushed to

“She went from doing one thing and then used that to just blow up her brand. I respect her as a businesswoman as she is very smart. If I can have a little bit of the success that she has had I will be happy,” she said.

Basketball Wives airs on VH1 on Mondays at 8 p.m.
