Evelyn Lozada is going through it right now, but she’s not alone. K. Michelle, who also has a reality show on VH1 and was a victim of domestic violence, gave us an exclusive statement offering her support to Evelyn.
“I just feel like it’s a very delicate situation, just like with my situation, no one was there with them. We don’t know what happened. We don’t know anything about it. And I think that media, as well as the Twitter people and the outside world, are so quick to judge and take sides on the situation.
It’s sad to see a black man lose his job. It’s sad on his part. It’s sad on her part. As a woman, you never want to have to go through that. I think that’s something very traumatic for any woman to have to go through.
Evelyn is such a beautiful woman that a lot of girls look up to. I’m very proud of her for taking a stance and walking away, because I feel like I was so in love at the time when the police came to my rescue, I should’ve moved forward with charges and [I should’ve done] what I needed to do. So, I think it’s very commendable on her part. At the same time it’s a tragic situation for both parties.”
K. addressed all the hate and negative comments people had for Evelyn because of how she’s viewed on her show Basketball Wives.
“I think it’s really crazy that people can watch you on TV for an hour, and you’ve been living your life forever, and put on TV for an hour, and then for you to not be sympathetic towards Evelyn or sympathetic towards me. There are different sides of every woman. Editing happens.
You don’t understand and you don’t know who K. Michelle is. You don’t understand and you don’t know who Evelyn is. You don’t know if Evelyn goes home, and she could be the most mild mannered, calm person. You just never know how that is.
To not be sympathetic to her in a time like this is absolutely ridiculous. It shows you just how evil the world is and it shows you just how real jealous the world is.”
It’s good to know that there are some women who support Evelyn, and who can relate to her situation. What do you think of K. Michelle’s comments?
