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.”
