Season 5 of VH1’s Basketball Wives maybe the most watch reality show on television. The highly publicized break-up between Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco Johnson was all filmed. During her divorce, the break-out star also lost her brother in law, Anthony, who walked her down the aisle.
In the first episode, Ev cries to her mother:
It’s just like the timing is crazy. It’s like two of my best friends just gone. Which feels f––––d up. You know? Why is this happening to my life? That’s my brother and then he dies right after the incident with me and Chad … Words can’t even explain how dark I felt – like, this can’t be my life.Why is this happening to my life? Like that’s my brother and he like dies. Right after the incident with me and Chad. And it just–I can’t even; words can’t even explain how dark I felt.
In the conversation with her mom, Evelyn expressed why she was upset with her ex-husband’s infidelity in their marriage. She also went into details about what triggered their argument that night.
Some people can be like ‘Oh, it’s her fault.’ I think I had every reason to be pissed off that my husband of three weeks is buying condoms. I think I have every right, but he knows I was good to him.
