Evelyn sits down with to dish on the ‘Basketball Wives’ season finale and reunion! Plus, she shares all the scoop on her and Chad Ochocinco’s wedding plans!

Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada has been one busy woman! She got engaged to the love of her life, New England Patriots Wide Receiver Chad Ochocinco back in November, has been consulting fertility experts about having twins and filmed another entertaining season of Basketball Wives. With part one of the reunion airing tonight, Aug. 15, on VH1, Evelyn dishes to all the inside scoop about the finale and reunion. And she also reveals her and Chad’s wedding plans exclusively to us!

During the Aug. 8 season finale, Evelyn confronted Chad after she saw him having lunch with another woman. “We resolved it and we moved on,” Evelyn confesses. “I don’t know if he sees my point, but there’s always that man-woman conflict.”

But they have moved on and been trying to get pregnant with twins but Evelyn’s not pregnant yet. “That’s the good thing with fertility, you can pick and choose when you want to have babies,” she explains. “We want to have the babies after the wedding.”

Speaking of weddings, Evelyn and Chad are planning to get married in the summer of 2012! “I would like something small,” Evelyn gushes. “But Chad being who he is wants something bigger and more over the top. We’ll see if we can meet somewhere in the middle.”

Celebrity wedding planner Dianne Valentine, who did Usher and Evelyn’s co-star Jennifer Williams‘ weddings, will be in charge of the celebration, Evelyn notes. She also adds that they will be getting in married in Miami.

And Basketball Wives may be looking at a fourth season! “It only makes sense,” says Evelyn. “I would return.” But Evelyn admits that she wouldn’t want Meeka, or maybe even Royce, to come back!
