Evelyn Lozada said she is not interested in filming another season of VH1's Basketball Wives.

Lozada said in a recent interview that her contract with VH1 ends with season 5, which is currently airing on the network. While there may be another opportunity to sign on again, the Bronx-bred Latina said she would rather have her own spinoff show.

"I signed on to do five seasons and this is our fifth. I don't really see me doing a sixth season," Lozada told Huffington Post Live.

"I know I can carry my own show, pretty much carried this one," she said referring to Basketball Wives. "I would do my own show because I know I would have creative control."

She then explained she would not want to work with a group of women again because mentally she is in a "different space."

"I'm open to doing a spin-off, but just not with a cast of women," she added.

She revealed she has been working with two renowned life coaches--Tony Gaskins and Iyanla Vanzant--to help keep her calm and reduce the chances of her returning with her diva-like and confrontational behavior she displayed in previous seasons.

"I stay calm because I think about the previous season when I acted an a--, and it just wasn't a good look for me, so I think about that," she said. "We talk about everything, whether it's dating, whether it's the show, whether it's family. It's just nice to be able to have that outlet and be honest....It helps me. It's just nice to have that person you can trust and you know it won't go anywhere."

She said her coaches were proud of seeing a "calmer" Lozada in season 5 and liked how she handled a recent disagreement with her co-star Tami Roman.

"Probably last season I would have gotten up, but it's just not worth it to me. I made a promise last season to just be a better example," she explained. "That's why I chose to be a mature lady and make my life coach very happy, and I sat down and if she wanted to act crazy and make herself look crazy that's fine."

Evelyn Lozada & Tasha Marbury Feud Over Stephon Marbury Affair Mention In Book?

During episode 6 of Basketball Wives season 5 that aired on Monday, Roman told the cameras in her one-on-one she has seen a dramatic difference in the way Lozada handles feuds. She said the "old" Lozada would have physically attacked new cast member Tasha Marbury over a comment she made in epsiode 1.

"I definitely think the old Evelyn would have thrown a glass of water in [Marbury] face and then a chair.. and then potentially a plate... and maybe a wine bottle," Roman deadpanned with a serious face expression.

"But Tasha definitely would have got hit with something...Domestic violence really isn't something to joke about. People poke fun here and there but I think that it's a serious, serious matter," Roman explained.
