Evelyn Lozada Covers Latina magazine to give the dish on how she is cutting he “Soul Ties” with he ex-Chad Johnson!

Reality TV’s favorite ‘bad girl gone good’ Evelyn Lozada is giving a softer and more au naturale look for the cover of Latina magazine’s August 2013 issue.

Inside the upcoming issue 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 from her ex-husband and former NFL baller Chad Johnson. The incident made headlines, followed by a very messy divorce and countless Twitter comments from both parties involved.

Evelyn reveals that she’s linked up with life coach Tony Gaskins Jr. who is helping her cut her “soul ties” from her ex.  Ms Lozada has launched a foundation that is dedicated to helping survivors of domestic violence, and she will soon be putting her reality TV days to rest to focus more on expanding her brand and enjoying her family. 

Catch a few highlights below:

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.”
On why she plans to start a foundation dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence called Pain Is Not Love:
“I get e-mails every single day from women who are still with their abusive partner and they’re like, ‘I need help.’”
On trying to reform her life with the help of life coach Tony Gaskins, Jr. and being re-baptized:
 “Tony was talking to me about soul ties, and I felt like I needed to cut that cord [with Johnson]. I wanted to do things differently, to start over. I’m still going to be Evelyn, but I have a different vision of my life.”

On her relationship with Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson:

“When times were good, times were great. We would laugh a lot. It was just one of those things… There was nothing in the middle — when it was great, it was great; but when it was bad, it was real bad. There was no in between.”

On the head-butting incident and domestic abuse:

“We had issues. Nothing like that though. Obviously nothing like that. But I will say this: what’s sad is that if that day, if I didn’t have physical wounds, I probably would’ve walked right into that house [after arguing] because I wouldn’t have wanted anyone to know. I would’ve been embarrassed. I wouldn’t have wanted my family to know. I think that happens a lot with women and even men because I’ve had a lot of men, especially gay men, tell me that they’ve been in abusive relationships. You’re embarrassed and ashamed.”

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.”

On why she plans to start a foundation dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence called Pain Is Not Love:

“I get e-mails every single day from women who are still with their abusive partner and they’re like, ‘I need help.’[...]“Being an advocate for domestic violence, you don’t choose that. I got chosen via the circumstances that happened. But I cannot imagine me being in that situation and not being able to do anything, just being stuck. So that’s how the foundation came about. To help women get out.”

On being a reality star

“I really don’t [see myself doing this forever]. I see myself working behind the scenes — whether it’s working on my books or doing stuff on TV shows. I really want to have a family. And if that presented itself to me, I would probably just enjoy the moment because I feel like, with my daughter, it went by so fast! I really didn’t have the chance to just enjoy that moment of having a family. I have a desire for that.”
