Evelyn Lozada “I Broke The Friend Code”
A lot of people have been giving Evelyn Lozada a lot of negative remarks lately, especially since her last altercation with former best friend, Jennifer Williams. Evelyn has been known for throwing bottles, drinks, and trash talking. After watching the last few episodes, I can honestly see that Evelyn is truly hurt by Jennifer Williams. If you guys caught Monday episode, you can see that they both miss each other. I think they should really sit down with one another without any cameras or extras to handle this kind of situation.
Recently, Evelyn Lozada sat down with Vibe.com to talk about her friendship with Jennifer Williams, Basketball Wives, and keeping her name after marrying Chad Ochocinco. Here are a few exercpts from the interview:
In your last chat with Jen, a lot was said. Could you ever move
forward into a space where you could at least be in the same room with
I think so. A lot was happening during that time. I’m one of
those people, I said some things and I was just like, that was not cooI. I live
by loyalty and I feel like at that point I broke the friend code. I should have
never broken that code and I should have never stooped down to that level. Like,
if she wants to do interviews and slick comments, it is what it is. I don’t hate
her. People just get caught up in this industry; you do interviews and say
certain things. I truly don’t wish her anything negative, we’ve gone through a
lot together as friends from moving out, men drama, all types of stuff. It’s
just tough having to relive it then talk about it. You never have that time for
healing. But now that the show is done and things are calming down, I’m not
angry anymore about it and I don’t hate her at all. I don’t really hate anybody,
I was just upset how things were handled.
Do you miss her or the friendship?
I miss her. We were
friends for 10 years. I was in her wedding, so you know yeah, and your thinking
you guys are going to do this show together, your BFF, and then your kind of
like what happened? And we are mutual friends with a lot of people, so
everything else became weird energy. It was tough.
How do you develop a tough skin for that?
You can’t do this and be sensitive. For example, you know Suzie [Ketcham], she gets a lot of
shit from the show. After she films the show, she doesn’t watch it or go on
Twitter. She’s like, ‘I don’t know how you deal with it.’ I’ve accepted that
this is a part of my life and apart of my world now. The more the show became
popular, and I started dating Chad, and I got engaged to Chad, it’s been like
chaos. I’m never going to hide and I’m always one of those people that say TV
can be a gift and a curse, and at the same time it’s opened up a lot of doors
for me that I never would have imagined. I can look at [the show] and say, Maybe
I shouldn’t have handled it like that. Maybe I shouldn’t have thrown that bottle
at Kenya, you know what I mean? If I’m blessed to be on TV for another five
seasons, you won’t see Evelyn doing that. I’ve learned from that situation. Me
and Tami do get a lot of heat because we are straight forward and in your face
and controversial. It’s not always positive, but I know we can look back
and say, ‘You know what, bitch, that wasn’t cool.
Lastly, are you going to go by Evelyn Ochocinco or Evelyn
I don’t know. I’m going to keep Evelyn Lozada for now
because it’s a brand that I’m building. It’s my own little thing I got going on.
We are still on the fence of that though, so we’ll see.
