Evelyn Lozada is Vibe Vixen's vixen of the month!
Lozada has had a rocky past couple of months, but seems to be getting her life back on track. Currently recording season 5 of Basketball Wives with Shaunie O'Neal, Tami Roman, Suzie Ketcham and newbie Tasha Mabury, Evelyn took time out of her "busy" schedule to kick it with the good people over at Vibe Vixen for this spread and cover story.
With Tami Roman saying that these "wives" have "changed" in recent interviews - read what Ms. Lozada had to say to the women's magazine below, in this "more than skin deep" issue.
On when she first felt 'beautiful':
Evelyn Lozada: Growing up around my family, I always felt I looked different. I started feeling myself when I was probably about 10 or 11. I definitely didn’t feel like an ugly duckling. I wasn’t bullied and nobody tortured me about anything on my body. But I think I started finding myself when I was in high school.
On her daughter Shaniece - on whether she has given her enough tools to feel beautiful:
I’ve never been one of those parents who tell their children, “Oh, you’re getting fat.” I tell her how beautiful she is every day. I’ve always been very open, talking to her about sex and things she needed to know.
On meeting Chad (her ex-husband) on Twitter, on if she'll ever do that again:
I’m not opposed to it, but I’m definitely doing a background check on you!
On her dream guy:
Somebody that’s loyal, very respectful, God-fearing. I really look up to Meagan Good and her husband, DeVon [Franklin]. I heard him preach, and this man had me in tears. I was like, “Wow, this is a man.”
So, someone designed by God and who knows how to run a household:
Yes, all of that. And good credit. [Laughs]
On where she sees her beauty brand in about five years time:
I’m working on my clothing line, so I envision so many things. Kind of like what J. Lo did. She’s done so many great things. If I could take a page out of her book, I’m good.
On what she wants to do after reality TV:
I would love to do production, turning my book into TV features and continue to work in fashion. I want my brands to be big. Global status.
