‘I Do Believe In Second Chances’: Evelyn Lozada Opens Up About Her And Chad’s Future

About four months have passed since “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada and then new husband Chad Ochocinco made headlines for a domestic violence dispute that ended in Chad being arrested, dropped from his contract with the Miami Dolphins, and an end to the couple’s 42-day marriage. With the exception of Evelyn’s appearance on Iyanla Vanzant’s “Fix My Life” and ABC News, the two pretty much refrained from discussing the incident. Until now, that is.

Last Wednesday, we reported on an interview that Chad did with ESPN’s First Take where he opened up about what went down between him and Lozada and getting help for his issues with domestic violence. He also admitted to cheating on Evelyn, but not without stating that he believed he deserved a second chance.

Since the interview aired, Evelyn has also opened up just a teeny bit more on her feelings about Chad and how she’s dealing in the aftermath of her public divorce.

In an interview with Rumor Fix, the reality star was asked how she felt about second chances and if she believed Chad deserved another chance. Here’s what she had to say:

“I do believe in second chances. I actually had someone ask me that recently, and I do. I’m not bitter, things happen and yeah, I do believe in second chances. I would want somebody to give me a second chances, and you never know.”

Interesting. Lozada also revealed in an exclusive interview with Radar Online that she would like to sit down and have a conversation with Chad someday.

“At some point a conversation needs to take place, I have questions about everything and that will happen when it’s supposed to happen,” Evelyn confides. “I would definitely like to sit down and talk to him down the road – I would just really like to get up in his head and ask, ‘Why?’

“Obviously he wasn’t thinking, but as a woman, there are certain things I needed closure with like why he cheated? It is hard for me to wrap my head around why someone would put everything at risk.”
“But I am not a man either so I don’t get that at all. Obviously that is wrong, I feel like we were both a lesson to each other, I have learned so many things… things that I will never tolerate again.”
She also expressed how she’s been dealing with his openness about still wanting to be married to her.

“I haven’t spoken to Chad, we can’t – we have a ‘no contact’ clause, but I hear things. He recently did an interview on ESPN and I saw clips of it but it wasn’t easy to watch because he is still wearing his wedding ring, and says he still wants to be married.

“He hasn’t tried to speak to me directly and I don’t think he is going to risk his freedom, I also don’t think it would be good for us.”

 Ev is asking an age old question that just about every woman who has ever been cheated on has pondered at one point or another. Unfortunately, the odds her getting an honest answer are slim to none. She seems as if she’s in a really great place and although her heart may want to go back, she realizes that the decision would be unwise– hopefully.

    She can’t use the tatics Iyana taught her because she is still a little girl living in a grown woman body and Chad is a boy living in a grown man body and if she thinks for one second that he is going to tell her the truth about why he cheated she has another thing coming. She talks about second chances and she will give him a second chance and he will do the same thing again to her. Chad Johnson is a time bomb waiting to go off. The devil is riding on him and making him fall deeper and deep and the second time around is not going to be nice. I’ve learned in life you get what your hand calls for and thats what the both of them are getting there both a waste, and just to think someone laid down with her and made a child with her and let alone three women laid down with him and made 4 children. I feel more sorry for the kids because they have JACKASS for parents. who has no guidance what so ever and that is sad, real sad.

  • She divorced him because he cheated on her not because he head butted her. She needs to be honest about that.

  • IllyPhilly

    Next reality show for the two: More important than a slice of pizza now.



  • NikkitaMichelle

    She’s speaking this second chance mess, so vh1 will go ahead and air that Ev & Ocho show. She doesn’t want any money left on the table.

    • yeppers

      I dont think that is still on the table after all of these firings Ocho had…I think they may be able to get something else…but aint nobody station finna show these 2 getting married again…Hell VH1 almost got sued over them getting that place to give them that sham of a wedding for free in the first place.

  • NikkitaMichelle

    Uh, she knows why he cheated? She said on national tv that she would deal with it and it would be okay. So of the questions she could possibly ask him, why would she ask about cheating instead of asking why he headbutted her?

    • yeppers

      LOL I know…who is she fooling with that line…THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW WHY HE CHEATED EV, AND U STILL DONT??? ITS CUS U TOLD HIM HE COULD….she want to now say that she didnt really want that in her marriage but said on Iyanla that she didnt even make that clear to him that it was not OK…SO Im trying to figure out when what this man who apparently needs guidance to know right from wrong like a child, was supposed to know that she really DIDNT MEAN HE COULD CHEAT. That man was going to so what u said he could do…..thats like giving a kid keys to a candy store.

  • eyeconic1

    She asks why did he cheat. Well on the show wasn’t it clear that he would have side pieces. I mean he asked her so do you want me to call you. Condoms. So it should have been no surprise that he would cheat. She jus tthought she was the one that could change him. Nope as the saying goes “when a person shows you who they are, believe them”. We have a funny way of making situatiosn teh way we want them to be instead of clearly seeing them for what it is. Reality!!! I do beleive in second chances but those chances come with circumstance. Do you show any steps into changing? Are those changes consistent? I don’t want to hear just words. Maybe, its me but they did not seem to be in love to me. Not genuine love, anyway.

    • yeppers

      I think She got together with him for the fame initially (BECAUSE THATS WHAT I THINK THEY BOTH AGREED UPON) and then jumped up one morning wanted a fairy tale marriage…and he wasnt in her words BOUT THAT LIFE. HE TOLD HER THAT!!

  • Evelyn Lozada is an opportunist. I don’t see any true redemption or transformation. IMO. I don’t care to hear anything else about her.

  • baddvixentype

    oh lawd now she wants to put out there they could get back together.. she just gon scretch this as far as she can huh. do that ish in private. we no longer care!

  • Faith

    Boy, she is definitly going to milk this cow until she can’t milk it any more. She is still running around doing all these interviews about the issue. She still to resolve her anger issues as well even though she was on Iyana FIx my Life. I still say that she had a part of what happened. I have to agree MadameNoire, if this get read, PLEASE, stop writing about Lozarda, Kardashian, Rhianna.

  • realadulttalk

    I believe in giving second chances to have a seat–Evelyn I just gave you yours–please take it this time.

  • Beejcee

    Evelyn showed up to unveil her PETA ad in Louboutins, do they make those in pleather?

  • Juju Bean

    They flirt on Twitter all day everyday, so she can kill that noise.

  • rzakia

    My question is did she ever stop talking to him? I see everything online about these two sending tweets back and forth to one another in code language. I’m sick of Evelyn Lozada and I don’t want to hear anything else about Chad Johnson unless it’s football related.

    • yeppers

      thank U…I mean why are we even talking to or about this woman. She told a man on national television he could cheat on her and then went on record saying she screws women with him…I DONT WANT TO HEAR ANYTHING SHE HAS TO SAY. Thanks and goodnight. She has some nerve trying to play a victim after she acted on tv like she was cool with marrying him although ALL of these characteristics were PRESENT BEFORE THEY MARRIED and she was MIGHTY OK WITH IT TO GET THAT CHECK AND A SPIN OFF SHOW . Get out of here Evelyn, she about money and publicity and happy that this foolishness is still extending her 15 minutes.

      • KIMCHASE

        Wow really? The part about her screwing women with him. I’ve never heard that before. Now i have NOTHING against lesbians but i think it’s disgusting to bring another women into your bedroom with your huband. That only leads to distruction of your marraige. I’m sorry. If he cheated then in some ways didn’t she welcome it by participating in sleeping with women with him? I don’t know that’s just MY OPINION.

        • yeppers

          Sure did…when she was a guest on Kandi coated nights she said that she went down explained kinda explicitly what she did…wont repeat it here. But sure it can be googled. So basically she touted being a freak with him/ using that to keep him….but then wanted this stand up faithful man on the other hand. I dont think it WORKS THAT WAY…U CANT SHOW A MAN THAT YOU ARE EASY AND WILL STAND FOR JUST ABOUT ANYTHING THEN GET MAD WHEN HE TRY AND BRING U ANYTHING.

          • KIMCHASE

            You are absolutely right about it. Wow evelyn is one for the book. Thanks!

          • Niki

            I went to kandi coated an read what Evelyn had to say about her and Chad , Them two have done everything from have threesome and even Evelyn sleeping with other women for Chad in there home right in there bed. So my question is why did she get mad when she found condoms. Is it because you weren’t invited to join in. My parents have taught me when you give a man or a woman an open door they go for it. So Evelyn you are the causes of your own down fall with Chad. You allowed it, Accepted it, so no deal with it.

  • Cleo

    Of course she does, she sees Rihanna back with Chris, and everyone knows she copies Rihanna ugh
