It’s official…Evelyn Lozada of Basketball Wives Miami and former NFL Star Chad “OchoCinco” Johnson officially divorced this morning. The public couple who had their own show on VH1, showcasing their wedding, which never aired due to the abuse allegations, were married for 6 weeks. Chad had been making last minute efforts to try and win his wife back, but after Evelyn sought out help from the OWN channels Life Coach Iyanly Vanzant, she was clearly ready to move on.
Iyanla Fix My Life, the two part show that premiered this past weekend on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network, became the highest rated debut in the network’s history and reached over 2.5 million viewers during its run. And on Sunday, the broadcast was #1 in African-American households period. In an exclusive event in Los Angeles last night, Iyanla Vanzant told CNikky and other attendees that she speaks with Evelyn every other day and is helping to hold her accountable for her actions and decisions. She said that Evelyn still weeps most days, but it healing. While this is a sad situation for the both of them (especially the kids, who seemed to love Evelyn), it sounds like this was the best thing for both of them.
