SEASON 1, EPISODE 107 | AIRED ON 09/15/12
Who is Evelyn Lozada? To millions, she's the unpredictable star of Basketball Wives. Off camera, she's like many of us—a woman seeking her true self.
On July 4, 2012, Evelyn married NFL player Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson. Just after the wedding, Iyanla Vanzant traveled to Miami to get to the heart of their very public relationship. When Iyanla arrived, she found only Evelyn, who opened up about her greatest fears, her marriage and the shame she felt when her stepdaughters saw her behavior on television. With Iyanla's tough love, Evelyn started down the path to self-discovery.
Four weeks later, Evelyn alleged that Chad head-butted her. Chad was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery and pleaded not guilty. Evelyn filed for divorce. When asked for a statement, Chad had no comment.
After their separation, Iyanla flies to New York City to find out what happened that night and guide her to a positive fresh start.
