We were so looking forward to meeting Evelyn Lozada’s new baby boy that her pregnancy felt like an eternity! But the reality star and her MLB player fiancé Carl Crawford finally welcomed their little one, Carl Leo (they’ll call him Leo), into the world last weekend. And while Ev’s been receiving heaps of well wishes and advice, the most surprising might be from straight-shooting talk show host Wendy Williams.

“I also want to congratulate Evelyn Lozada. Evelyn gave birth to a cash register, I mean, a baby boy with her her fiancé, the $142 million dollar Carl Crawford,” Wendy said on her show this week, before backtracking on her shade a little bit, “I didn’t mean to make that cash register joke, but you see why it’s easy to be said.”

She then went on to talk about how Carl is “not a bad-looking man” but that he would never have landed a gorgeous gal like Evelyn if he wasn’t such a successful athlete. But in Wendy’s opinion, their union is mutually beneficial.   

“She upgraded him, and now that she’s had the baby, he’s upgrading her,” the host said of the new parents. “If I were her, I would be like ‘Miami who? Miami what?’ I would never go back to Miami.”

In other words, Wendy said she sees Evelyn, who is in her late 30s, as being beyond her past gig on Basketball Wives. She brought up the reality star’s history of being a young mother — to grown daughter Shaniece, 20 — and how far she’s come. “Evelyn has clearly lived, to the point that right now, this is perfect,” Wendy noted.

And the outspoken lady of daytime doesn’t just think Ev should quit the show, she thinks she should separate herself completely from the women she used to associate with on the reality hit.

“Lose the telephone numbers of all those hating basketball wives who are going to want to hate on your situation,” Wendy advised, adding, “I like Shaunie O’Neal who was the creator of Basketball Wives too, but I would even lose Shaunie’s number, too. I would start a whole new life as the queen of the castle.”

Wendy thinks the future Mrs. Crawford would do well as a housewife in “a little apron” and catering to her “cash register” husband — but does she also think she’d be good as a Housewife? She didn’t say Ev should join the wildly successful Bravo franchise exactly, but now that the idea is out there, we’re sort of loving it.

What do you think: Should Ev join up with Lisa Vanderpump and the gang in Beverly Hills? Or perhaps she can pull a Kenya Moore and split her time between L.A. and Atlanta? Share in the comments below.
