I Get Why People Would Believe That: Evelyn Lozada Talks Being Blamed For Provoking The Chad Ochocino Assault

When news of Chad and Evelyn’s physical altercation first leaked back in August, people wasted no time accusing the “Basketball Wives” star of initiating the fight. People even went as far as to say that she got what she deserved. After watching her erratic behavior on the last season of “Basketball Wives”, it was difficult for many to view her as a victim when they tuned in week after week only to see her victimize her fellow cast members. In an interview with Vibe, Evelyn shared that she understands why people blamed her for the incident and accepts full responsibility for her actions last season.

“I felt that I was getting blamed for the incident happening and it was hard…but at the same time I take full responsibility for putting this perception of me out there that I just argue and fight. That’s what most people connect me with, especially with last season. So it’s like ‘Oh, okay well maybe she did something to deserve what happened.’ And I’m like ‘I didn’t do anything’. “

She also expressed how grateful she was that Chad spoke out and cleared up any misconceptions that she may have initiated the fight.

“He did an interview… he was honest and real. I finally felt relieved that he said I didn’t have anything to do with what happened that day. He takes full responsibility…”

I believe that the ability to view a situation from multiple viewpoints exhibits growth. Since the incident and of course her life-changing encounter with Iyanla Vanzant, Ev appears to be continuing down a path of positivity. Hopefully she keeps this in mind while the cameras are rolling and that temper of hers wants to flare up.

Check out footage of her interview on the next page. What did you think when people began blaming Evelyn for Chad assaulting her?

    This Ev and Chad situation brings one-sided views on violence to the surface. It was good for ratings when Ev hit Jennifer in the head with her purse and when she jumped across the table to fight Jennifer. But when Ev is on the receiving end of violence with her ex, then people want to talk about why you shouldn’t hit people. Ev became a victim of the image she created.

  • I never understood why in today’s entertainment world people with no discernible talent other than being pretty and screwing people with actual talent and skills entitles them to be celebrities. Please explain to my why this gutter trollop with daddy issues is someone that should be interviewed for anything.

      I kind of agree. Why these people don’t have no talent, making sex tapes, sleep with all the athletes and get a show. I do understand that there is two sides of the story. To me, it is still a lot unanswered questions about it. Approximately 2-3 weeks (maybe earlier) after the incident happened, she was doing all these interviews. Maybe times, has changed, usually when someone who has been abused physically, they don’t quickly do a lot of interviews. Lozardo was doing all these interviews. I still say she somehow provoked him. Any athletes who get with her, with her foul mouth, they just as crazy as she is. I hope she put some of Vanzant’s tip and practices to work. She need wash her mouth out with soap. She has a mouth like a sewer.

      • Chad is certifiable. What he did is inexcusable. However, I’m sick of these weaved up, bleached up, surgery up, glorified hookers getting air space and articles. They don’t deserve it. It use to be you had to have something going for yourself in order to be on TV. Not so much anymore.
