Evelyn Lozada

Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada sits down with Latina magazine to chat about the infamous name she made for herself on reality TV and how she's working to change her life for the better since her altercation with Chad Johnson.

On her feelings after the violent argument with Chad: “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.”

To read her full interview, Latina will be on shelves July 9th.
