Reality TV star Evelyn Lozada opens up about the infamous name she made for herself on Basketball Wives and her turnaround after becoming the victim of domestic violence in the August 2013 issue of Latina, which hits newsstands and Nook Newsstand on July 9, 2013.

Lozada talks to Latina about the abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex-husband, NFL player Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, her history of volatile behavior and scathing insults at cast mates during the filming of the reality TV show Basketball Wives, the public backlash she endured, and her decision to finally change her ways and her life.

On her feelings after the violent abuse of her ex-husband during an argument: “At that point, I knew my life would never be the same. I knew the world was going to laugh at me and be mean and nasty and blame me for everything. But I had no choice. I had to go to the hospital.”
