Why Evelyn Wants to Give Away Her $25,000 Wedding Dress
Season 1 Episode 106
Aired on 08/15/2015
When Evelyn's longtime friend Rob comes to Los Angeles to visit, Evelyn decides to move on from her past by ridding her storage unit of a particular item: the Ines Di Santo wedding dress she wore when she married Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson in 2012. Evelyn divorced Chad just 41 days after exchanging vows, and she hasn't seen her $25,000 designer gown in three years.
After searching through cardboard boxes, Rob and Evelyn finally find what they're looking for. "It's like a little time capsule," Rob says. "I forget how beautiful this dress is."
Evelyn is nervous to open the box, so she is surprised by her own reaction when she sees the gown. "I think if I would have opened up this box maybe right after it happened, I probably would have died. But I don't feel anything," she says. "I'm so far disconnected from it that, yeah, it's just a dress."
Watch as Evelyn explains why she wants to gift this dress to a deserving bride.
