Basketball Wives Evelyn Lozada is all smiles on the Feb/Mar 2013 cover of VIBE VIXEN. The former wife of Chad Ochocinco Johnson talks about business, whether she keeps in touch with her ex-husband of two months, and how Iyanla Vanzant helped fix her life:
ON WHETHER SHE STILL STAYS IN TOUCH W/ CHAD:
We don’t speak. This is best for the both of us right now. But I think that we’ve gotten some kind of closure. I will forever love Chad and care about him and wish him the best. I don’t have one bitter bone in my body about what happened. For me to be able to move on with my life and find love again, I can’t hold on to that baggage. I pray about it every day; I pray for him every day. I hope when he finds whoever he’s with next, he chooses to do things differently.
ON HOW IYANLA HAS HELPED HER MOVE ON:
I’m still going through the healing process. After I did that interview, I never talked about [the abuse] ever again. But I do reality TV; not talking about it doesn’t make sense. When we started filming [Basketball Wives] again, I started talking about it. I’m very emotional probably every episode because I’m dealing and filming and going through my healing process at the same time.
ON HER NEW MAKEUP LINE, E BY EVELYN COSMETICS:
We’re going to add new palettes, more lip gloss, nail polish. Right now, there are pigments, eye shadows, brushes and a skin-care line. I really love nail polish and having designs on my nails, so we’re going to add those products on the line as well.
