I didn’t know this, but the upcoming episode of Iyanala Vanzant’s “Fix My Life” featuring Evelyn Lozada was before and after the head butting incident with Chad Johnson. (Yesterday he was formally charged and plead not guilty)
This morning Oprah and Iyanla appeared on The Good Morning America show and Oprah said she wants people to give Evelyn a chance.
“People love to hate Evelyn Lozada but after they watch the show they will feel different….I have friends who wanted to watch that tape, they come away with feeling something different. It’s really amazing.”
Iyanla who actually did the interview with Evelyn and helped coach her took up for Evelyn also:
“She’s made mistakes that everyone has made, she has a story that many woman has lived….Don’t act like you don’t know what Evelyn’s going through.
The show will be a two-part series and the first episode is before the assault. It will be very interesting to see how Evelyn’s feelings change from before to after the incident.
I do think people were a little hard on her because of her role on basketball wives. Some people have a hard time separating reality show stars lives on their shows to their lives outside of them.
I said it before, but I’ll say it again NO woman deserves what happened to Evelyn regardless. I would love to see some of you critics in her shoes! Iyanla is completely right!
