There I said it. Every since news broke last week that Chad “Ocho Cinco” “headbutted” his new bride, Evelyn Lozada, from that trashy reality show, “Basketball Wives” the Internet has been going wild with the story. We’ve heard that Chad has been cut from his NFL team and that Evelyn has decided to file for divorce. Just like everyone else I’ve been trying to feel some type of sorry for Evelyn but nothing is moving me. I’ve tried to feel sorry for her that she was so afraid of her husband that she had to run to a next door neighbor’s home for safety. I’ve tried to feel sorry for her because her now 40 day marriage is over. I’ve tried to feel sorry for her because I’m sure she’s embarrassed that the man she declared was her “knight in shining armor” has a problem keeping his “head” to himself.
But the reality is that not only am I not sorry but I am smirking at the irony of these events. Here is a woman who reigned a “campaign of terror” against other women (on national television) and now because someone has done the same to her I’m supposed to feel some type of way? Negative.
You see I am totally against violence toward women and men like Chad Johnson should have to pay for what they did but why are we ignoring the violent, foul mouthed antics of this chick, Lozada? All last season we saw her bully, intimidate and try to assault a person that used to be her friend. The entire season she was at 1,000% and now since she’s had an act of violence committed towards her we are all supposed to feel sorry for her?
Nope I won’t buy it. Think about it. That’s like us feeling sorry for Jerry Sandusky if someone sexually assaults him in jail after what he did to those poor boys at Penn State. Or it’s like us feeling sorry for Chris Brown if he got beat up by a woman-it wouldn’t happen. So why now is the “media” and Evelyn’s PR team trying to make her the spokeperson for domestic abuse?
Probably because they want to position her getting her own reality show about rebuilding her life after being abused by her husband.
I’m not buying it.Ever. If she does get a show I will never watch it just like I refused to watch her on Basketball Wives and how I refused to watch her and Chad’s show that was to debut on VH1.
Instead of us feeling sorry for her we need to make her accountable for her actions against other women on television. Maybe she needs to admit her despicable behavior on Vh1 towards Jennifer and other targeted ones.
I know people will write comments about this post and say that I am advocating violence against women and cry about Lozada being a victim but I don’t care. I don’t feel sorry for her and personally I believe this is karma.
Maybe this encounter she’s had with violence will help her understand the pain she inflicted on others. Maybe this will make her a better person in the end. Maybe she’ll return for the next season of Basketball Wives and be a person that is calm, respectful and ladylike instead of violent, disrespectful and beastly.
Who knows, either way I just hope I never see her like this (look below) again. What do you think–do you feel sorry for Evelyn Lozada?
