With the exception of a few rumors regarding a romantic reunion with her ex-husband, talk of reality television star Evelyn Lozada’s life has been fairly minimal lately. Until now that is. According to Hip Hollywood, sources are saying that the Basketball Wives star has been seeing 31-year-old Los Angeles Dodgers player, Carl Crawford.
Eyewitnesses say Lozada was spotted late last month in New York City at Chase Field for the Dodgers vs. Mets series. We hear that Ev’s reps are denying the rumors and continue to maintain that she’s “single.”
Since her marriage came to a tumultuous end last September, the 37-year-old born-again Christian has vowed to follow God’s lead in selecting her next mate.
“I just really want my future husband, very God fearing. That is something that is really important to me especially the last eight months. People say that you go through stuff and your God’s best friend; He truly got me through so much that is first and foremost. What ever he looks like is fine, I guess that will all come. And this time I’m like ‘I’m not choosing…’ I’m going to let Him bring whoever that person is to me…even if it takes three years, it’ fine, I’m cool,” Lozada said in a February interview.
Although now may not be the time, it would be nice to see Ev find true love after experiencing so much drama in the romance department.
For the past few weeks, the discussion of “How old is too old?” has come up a lot for me. Well, not necessarily for me per se, but in reference to celebrities and even everyday women who wear and do certain things after a certain age to the chagrin of others. Writer IndigoBlack did a slideshow a while back about that wretched half-shaven hairstyle that stars like Cassie and Rihanna like to wear, and in it, she pointed out that even Jada Pinkett Smith had tried the hairstyle. While she looked pretty cool in it, it seems that for the 41-year-old mom, some felt she was doing too much at her age (including the author). To that, a reader disagreed with a very interesting comment:
“I think it’s ridiculous to say anyone is too old for anything, except maybe breast feeding. that’s what’s wrong with society. people turn 40 and assume they and everyone else their age are growing old and stale, and the closer they get to their expiration date, the more boring they have to get… do what you want, wear what you want and live your life exactly how YOU want to, who cares what year you were born?”
I kept this comment in mind after checking out the old post. Less than a week later I was surprised to find that on a popular fashion website, they were asking “How old is too old to wear a crop top?” plastering the image of Evelyn Lozada and LaLa Anthony with their stomachs out. Toned with tummies looking even better than my stomach at ages 37 and 33, I thought to myself, “Hell, if their bodies are in shape and looking better than most young women’s bodies, what’s the harm?”
Fast forward to this past weekend when Madonna came out with a Chinchilla fur and no pants on, and Jennifer Lopez performed in a red leotard (booty all out) and thigh-high boots with a boa at the Billboard Music Awards, everybody had a lot to say on social media. Folks were all over Facebook saying that Madonna looked a fool at 54 in her fishnets (though those legs of hers are envious), while others were claiming that despite her very entertaining performance, Jennifer Lopez was too old to be dressing like an extra from the Broadway show, Kinky Boots. Pair that with the fact that even my mother scolded the singer through the television during the Grammys for wearing one of the highest slits I’d ever seen at the age of 43, and it’s clear that many believe that as your age goes up, your levels of rachet should go down.
So now that I have all that straight, I guess I just need clarification from someone about exactly what age I’m supposed to turn in my tight jeans and my crop tops, and start wearing muumuus and mom jeans, because clearly their is some unwritten rule that when you pop out a few kids and get around your late 30s, you’re supposed to start shopping at Dress Barn and wearing dresses more fitting for a character like Madea. But we all know that’s complete bull.
While I can for the most part agree that as a mother, you shouldn’t be out here behaving recklessly (i.e., at the clubs all night, booty shorts on at PTA conferences and rocking belly shirts at graduations), I think we can all be a little too hard on our fellow sisters who would rather dress and act how they feel, and not by what their age relegates them to do. And I’ve found that it’s so easy for either younger women, or older women who’ve turned in their hot pants, to point the finger at the J.Los and other brave souls with banging bodies to say, “Have a seat,” but nobody wants society, especially not strangers on the Internet, telling them what looks appropriate on them because of their age.
I will say though, there is a difference between expressing yourself how you want and being thirsty for attention. If this attire is all you wear, chances are, you’re crying out for help. But if your body can look as right and tight as Madonna’s at 54, why not show a little leg? If your stomach, despite a kid or two, or three, is washboard worthy, why not put on a crop top occasionally? Our bodies are our own, and just because motherhood and older age comes, it doesn’t always mean that you have to dress like Bea Arthur on Golden Girls (love that show!). Life’s too short to start living a dull existence because people you don’t know tell you that’s what you should do. As Kevin Hart would say, “Do you boo boo, do you.”
Oh yes, but let’s keep the hot pants and leotards to a minimum ladies, especially if you want to stay in good graces with your kids. Everything in moderation…

It’s no secret how professional athletes attract A-list celebrities. The million dollar paychecks, fame, and power an NBA or NFL superstar can hold is a magnet for some women more than others. Here’s a look at 15 celebrity women who just can’t get enough of athletes.
Gabrielle Union has dated athletes for over a decade. The 40-year-old actress was married to former NFL running back Chris Howard for five years. Union moved on to safety Darren Sharper for a year before setting her sights on a new sport and new man. The Think Like A Man actress has been romantically linked to NBA superstar Dwayne Wade since 2008 and has stuck by the Miami Heat player’s side through a public and narsty divorce and custody case with his former wife Siovaughn.
Last week we reported on the over the top and seemingly uncalled for Twitter rant being served up by Chad Ochocinco. In what appeared to be his attempt to throw more dirt on her name and hurt her feelings, Chad hurled a tirade of insults towards his ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada. During the rant, the former Miami Dolphins player tossed around accusations of infidelity, hinted that she’s a hypocritical Christian, implied that she’s sleeping around with someone from YMCMB and even began attacking her publicist. While it’s unclear exactly what pushed Chad over the edge, it seems that the reality of all that has gone down in his life over the past year is certainly beginning to sink in.
Whatever his deal is, Evelyn has made it clear that she refuses to be his verbal punching bag. While she didn’t lash back out at her ex-husband on Twitter, she communicated both loudly and clearly that there will be legal action taken if he doesn’t put an end to the shenanigans. TMZ is reporting that 37-year-old Brooklyn native had her attorney send Chad a cease and desist letter on Thursday, warning that if he doesn’t quit attacking her online, she’ll have no choice but to see him in court. Sources are also saying that she is considering getting another restraining order against him.
Chad is scheduled to appear in court today for a hearing regarding the early termination of his probation, but a source also says that the prosecutor is aware of the latest incident and has expressed concern. Some believe that it could serve as a possible hinderance to his case. Why Chad would wait until he’s just days away from an early probation termination hearing to start acting the fool, the world may never know.
What do you think of Evelyn’s decision to send Chad a cease and desist letter? Was she justified in her decision or being overly dramatic?
Fun fact, Lance Gross has made quite the photographer of himself. The actor has been taking pictures for a bit now, with beautiful women as his usual subjects. One of his newer models is Evelyn Lozada’s daughter, Shaniece Hairston.
See what else these two have been up to on StyleBlazer.com.
Shaunie O’Neal and VH1 representatives promised that “Basketball Wives” would be turning over a new leaf for season five of the show. They claimed that they would be cutting back on “excessive physical confrontations” and so on during last season’s reunion show, after disgusted fans threatened to boycott. Even the show’s resident fist throwers, Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman promised to do better. Unfortunately, it seems that all of the cast members didn’t receive this memo. According to TMZ, Suzie Ketcham and Kenya Bell got into a plate-hurling, fist-throwing fight at an L.A. restaurant during filming of the show last week.
It hasn’t been revealed exactly what led up to the fight, but it’s being reported that things got completely of hand when Suzie and Kenya found themselves in a heated word exchange. According to sources, although Kenya was supposedly removed from the cast last year when VH1 was handing out pink slips, she was temporarily brought back into the mix so that her issues with Suzie could be settled.
At first, the altercation was limited to simple bickering, then Suzie took things a step further and threw a plate of meatballs on Kenya. Of course, Kenya reacted to the assault. Sources say that Kenya immediately went after Suzie and punches were thrown. VH1 producers had to intervene, prying Suzie and Kenya apart. If you’re wondering whether or not other cast members were present during the showdown, the answer is yes. Ironically, when the fight appeared to be escalating, sources say that Evelyn and Tami got up and walked away, claiming they wanted no parts of the drama.
Although I can’t say for sure, something tells me Tami and Ev may have had some sort of hand instigating the confrontation. I suppose we will have to wait and see, as sources also say that the fight will be shown during the upcoming season of the show. The “Basketball Wives” franchise honestly seems like it’s on its last leg. I hope the ladies have some other gigs lined up.
What are your thoughts on this? Will you be tuning in for season 5 or are you completely done with the show?
Who needs professional fashion designers anymore? Celebrities love to start fashion lines. And now pseudo-celebrities are starting them as well. Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada has announced that she is launching a new clothes line called “Vida Luxe,” which she debuted at the close of London Fashion Week, according to The Huffington Post. “I wanted to do something big, and I thought that launching this overseas would have a great affect [sic] on the line. I figured ‘go big or go home!’” she told Celebuzz.
No official photos have been released of the presentation, but so far, what has been seen of the line isn’t getting great reviews, as HuffPo reports, “We don’t know if the collection is entirely tacky. All we have to go off is a few sketches and Evelyn’s personal style, which consists of too-tight, too-embellished, too-over-the-top ensembles (Exhibit A and Exhibit B).” Lozada has a different take: “It’s very feminine and flowy and will fit all body types. It’s just so much fun. Lots of colors and patterns,” she explained to Celebuzz. We’v attached one of the drawings above, which Lozada tweeted.
Lozada brought her reality TV co-stars Shaunie O’Neil, Suzie Ketcham, and Tasha Marbury to the debut.
There’s nothing particularly objectionable about the dress in the drawing, but nothing exciting either. But seriously, are you just tired of celebrity fashions?
There isn’t much to say about this other than how do these outfits get worn out of the house, much less to a fashion show, and much much less to London Fashion Week. But that’s what the cast members of “Basketball Wives” Miami/New York did this week, and thankfully photographers were there to capture that fashion faux paus times five. All we see is prints everywhere so we can’t even tell what’s a boot, leggings, dress, or capris, but what we do know is that this ensemble is one word: tacky. Caption this photo and tell us what the heck is going on here.
‘I Just Really Want My Future Husband, Very God-Fearing:’ Evelyn Lozada Talks The Possibility Of Remarrying
With ex-husband Chad Ochocino making headlines for being in hot pursuit of women, many have been wondering whether or not reality star Evelyn Lozada is also open to meeting someone new and loving again. The Jasmine Brand recently caught up with the 37-year-old Brooklyn native at Tami Roman’s nail polish launch event. During her interview she discussed finding love after divorce, her relationship with Iyanla Vanzant and coping with critics. Check out a portion of her interview below.
On what she desires in a future husband:
“I just really want my future husband, very God fearing. That is something that is really important to me especially the last eight months. People say that you go through stuff and your God’s best friend; He truly got me through so much that is first and foremost. What ever he looks like is fine, I guess that will all come. And this time I’m like ‘I’m not choosing…’ I’m going to let Him bring whoever that person is to me…even if it takes three years, it’ fine, I’m cool.”
On becoming accustomed to being harshly criticized:
“I’m so used to it, I’m so used to controversy so if there isn’t any… I’ve grown to have thick skin. I’ve grown to know everybody’s going to have an opinion and I’ve been called every name in the book. It’s just a part of putting yourself out there.”
On continuing her relationship with Iyanla Vanzant:
“Iyanla has been such a blessing to me. We recently talked over text. She has just really helped me through my whole process. She just really helped me open my eyes to things that you don’t think about, or things growing up that effect you today. She’s been great and she came at a time in my life when I really needed some type of guidance. It made say, ‘Why am I the way I am?’ Why am I so angry and why do I accept the things that I accept. She’s just been great.”
