Former Miami Dolphins player, Chad Johnson and ex-wife Evelyn Lozada made their first public appearance together since their extremely ugly divorce yesterday in court. Why were they in court you ask? Thankfully, they weren’t there pressing assault charges against each other. Instead, they were doing something remotely opposite. They were there to lift the restraining order that was put in place after the two had a fallout over Chad’s infidelity, which ended in a head-butt lifted.

A video recovered by TMZ depicts Evelyn and Chad standing before a judge in a Florida courtroom as the judge proceeds to ask Evelyn if she feels threatened by Chad or is afraid of him. Evelyn responds “no” each time and the judge honored her request and lifted the restraining order.

Now Im sure that while some are in shock after hearing this news, others aren’t as Ev has been hinting to multiple media outlets that she would like to begin talking to Chad again and how she believes he deserves a second chance. One can’t say for sure that Evelyn’s request to lift her restraining order against Chad will result in a romantic reunion between the two, but then again, the possibility is certainly there.

Just last week, Evelyn told Radar Online that it was difficult having a “no contact clause” with Chad because he still wears his wedding ring and expresses that he wants her back.

“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.”

Ironically though, she also told Rumor Fix that although she had some questions for him, she didn’t think that reconnecting the lines of communication was a good idea.

“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.”

I guess she’s had a change of heart since then.

There are few women walking this earth that have not experienced a broken heart at one time or another. Most of us know how difficult and painful those can be. We also know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and thankfully “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada has seen that light. Lately Evelyn has been opening up to the media more and more regarding her divorce from former Miami Dolphins player Chad Ochocinco and how she got over the heartache that letting go of the relationship caused. In exclusive interview with Radar Online the 37-year-old reality star talked about those break up woes that many are so familiar with. Here is some of what she had to say.

On removing herself from the spotlight for awhile:

“I am absolutely back on the road to recovery now, I had a month-and-a-half where I was just dark, I wasn’t tweeting, I went away.”

“”I probably didn’t comb my hair for a month, I needed to turn off from the world, it was a very tough period for me. I am on the way to recovery now though, I am good,” she added.”

On where she currently is in her efforts to move on: 

“I have my moments, life is a little crazy but it is calming down now. It is tough when families are involved and you are still connected to kids.”

On how her daughter Shaniece helped her to pull through:

“”My daughter was my rock through the whole thing.”

“She is 19 so it was important to be strong for her and make sure she knew that this happened, and I want to be an example for her and let her know that domestic abuse is never something you should tolerate — don’t care who he is, how much money he has or how fine he is — I feel like I need to be an example for her and my 13-year-old stepdaughter, who was there and I still love.”

As much as you may despise her, she’s a woman just like the rest of us and I believe if we look beyond the drama that is constantly surrounding her, you’ll be able appreciate her transparency as a lost love is a topic that many are able to relate to. And just maybe her story can help someone else.

What do you think of Evelyn continuing to discuss the Chad incident? Is it helpful or should she just shut up already?
