Reality TV star Evelyn Lozada opens up about the infamous name she made for herself on Basketball Wives and her turnaround after becoming the victim of domestic violence in the August 2013 issue of Latina, which hits newsstands and Nook Newsstand on July 9, 2013.
Hit the flip for her quotes on leaving Chad Johnson and rededicating herself to her faith.
Here are the quotes:
On her feelings after the violent abuse of her ex-husband during an argument:
“At that point, I knew my life would never be the same. I knew the world was going to laugh at me and be mean and nasty and blame me for everything. But I had no choice. I had to go to the hospital.”
On why she plans to start a foundation dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence called Pain Is Not Love:
“I get e-mails every single day from women who are still with their abusive partner and they’re like, ‘I need help.’”
On trying to reform her life with the help of life coach Tony Gaskins, Jr. and being re-baptized:
“Tony was talking to me about soul ties, and I felt like I needed to cut that cord [with Johnson]. I wanted to do things differently, to start over. I’m still going to be Evelyn, but I have a different vision of my life.”
It’s kinda sad that Evelyn had the attitude off the bat that she would be ridiculed for what happened with Chad, but do you think she’s right?
Guess we’ll have to wait until the next season of “Basketball Wives” to see just how much religion she’s gotten.
