    Just because "Basketball Wives" starlet Evelyn Lozada admitted to having her fair share of dating drama with pro-athletes -- namely ex-Miami Heat star Antoine Walker -- doesn't mean she has sworn them off completely.

    "Initially, I would say, 'No, no, no,'" said Lozada.  "But you never know -- I am not going to judge every player on what happened with me and him [Walker]."

    "We will see what happens."

    Until then, she has her sexy footwear to keep her occupied.  Lozada is the co-owner of Coral Gables show boutique Dulce, which just celebrated its one-year anniversary last month and stays stocked with sultry pumps.

    "I would always come to Miami when my ex-fiance [Walker] played for the Heat, and always came here wanting to shop," said Lozada, during last night's celebration event for the store's new Georgina Goodman line. 

    "I realized there wasn't really one boutique that had both the New York and L.A. flavor."

    But don't expect the shoe-addictted socialite to abandon her reality persona any time soon.  VH1's "Basketball Wives" was just picked picked up for a second season and was even extended from its original 30-minute time slot to an hour-long segment due to its popular ratings. Still, Lozada says the process itself isn't always a "slam dunk."

    "I'm excited," she said. "It looks so easy when it is on TV, but taping is honestly not easy -- you're eating dinner, but you're not really eating dinner ... you are having intense conversations."
