Evelyn Lozada agreed to give Good Morning America her very first interview following the infamous headbutting incident with her husband Chad Johnson and GMA's Robin Roberts was Evelyn's first choice for the sit down.
Unfortunately Robin was unavailable.
Now, the official line is that Robin had to back out due to a scheduling conflict but the tea is something else entirely...
From Sandra Rose
According to a confidential source, who requested anonymity because she’s not authorized to speak publicly on the subject, Roberts backed out of the interview because of Lozada’s diva-like behavior.
The source told Sandrarose.com that Roberts, 51, wasn’t keen on interviewing Lozada. “She thought [Lozada] was beneath her,” said the source, who added that Roberts was a little put off by Lozada’s demands.
According to multiple sources, Lozada asked Roberts to conduct the interview in her luxury hotel suite in New York City rather than at the ABC studios.
But Roberts and ABC didn’t think Lozada was a big enough star to make such a request.
“Lozada’s people shopped the interview around to Oprah and other networks but Oprah’s people weren’t interested,” said the source.
