A few weeks ago TMZ broke the news that VH1 pulled the plug on Basketball Wives' Season 5 reunion, noting that Evelyn Lozada didn't want to participate. But there's more to the story than meets the eye (isn't there always?) and now the 37-year-old reality star is opening up via Twitter about why she backed out of the show.

"Choosing not to beat a dead horse! We all want 2 move on with life," she told one fan, later adding, "Didn't want 2 keep dwelling on the past."

We definitely understand where she's coming from — after all, the drama with ex-husband Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson is pretty much ancient history. The former lovebirds tied the knot on July 4, 2012, and just 42 days later Evelyn filed for divorce alleging that Chad headbutted her during a heated argument.

Oh, and if you're wondering whether the Brooklyn native ever plans to reconcile with her footballer ex? That's a hell to the no. "That ship sailed & sank in the Atlantic Ocean," she tweeted.

Despite all the drama, Evelyn has no regrets about putting her life on reality TV, telling her fans the pros definitely outweighed the cons. And no matter what happened in the past, she's looking ahead with optimism — even when it comes to romance. When a fan asked if she wants to get married again, she responded with a resounding "yes," adding, "Hoping it lasts longer than 42 days!"

We're glad that Evelyn's feeling good and moving on with her life. Unlike someone else we know…

Do you think Evelyn made the right choice by backing out of the reunion, or is she taking the easy way out? Weigh in below.
