Evelyn Lozada

Chad Is 'A Good Guy

Who Made a Bad Choice'

8/31/2012 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Evelyn Lozada says despite his arrest for allegedly head-butting her, she still loves estranged husband Chad Johnson -- but adds she can't imagine speaking to him any time soon.

In an interview with "Nightline" that airs tonight, Lozada described the alleged domestic violence incident as "a bad choice that destroyed his life ... But it was his choice, it wasn't mine."

Lozada said she hopes Chad is getting help and she wants "the best for him," but says that being apart is "the right thing."

Johnson is expected to be arraigned in September. Evelyn filed for divorce 2 days after his arrest.

Whatever    

This woman was coming outside in hats trying to cover her scar. Where is the scar? I would think she would have one after need 6 stitches to cover a deep laceration. Also, I thought she initially said that Chad was driving around the neighborhood looking for her. Now she says that he went in the house. Inconsistencies in her story. I hate that she is trying to milk this condom story when she approved of Chad's cheating on National Television. Why are people forgetting that? It seems like this woman is only interested in fame and how much money she can get from a man. Once all of that dries up, she runs for the hills.

Rihanna and Evelyn thinks it is okay to hit, scratch, and bite these guys, yet they are supposed to take this abuse from these women
I say; if you don't want to be hit, keep your hand to yourself. Then you get people to feel sorry for you, I say you deserve it. If a woman hit my sons, they have better hit back. I tell my daughter, you don't want to be hit keep your hands to yourself. I think these guys get a bad rap from these women. Men if you continue to beat women you could get blown away, it is not worth it. Let these women alone. Evelyn knows she has shown her A!! Many time on the basketball wives. I would not associate with a person like that; she has no respect for herself or her daughter...

Her lawyer and/or publicist must have advised her not to wipe the tears, it appears more dramatic on camera. She's terrible, but Chad should've known better. She wasn't just a groupie. She's a groupie on the come up.

EV SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE RIHANNA IN THIS VIDEO. PROBLEM IS..... RIHANNA'S INTERVIEW WAS HEARTFELT AND TRUTHFUL, YET I DONT BELIEVE EVELYN ONE IOTA. SHE IS A VIOLENT, LOW CLASS, GOLD-DIGGER. MANY DISLIKE HER. SHE KNOWS THIS. THAT IS WHY SHE IS CONTRIVING THESE FAKE TEARS !! FOR SYMPATHY !!!!

Chad's biggest mistake was being with the violent media whore in the first place. The tears are fake and shame on the media for giving her any air time. Ask her how many women she has beaten, thrown things at or verbally attacked.

What goes around comes around...I'm not saying Evelyn deserve what happened to her but on Basketball Wives she threw water on a woman's face, wanted to beat up Jennifer and climb across the table to get to her, she was constantly a bully, and she never got help for her anger? On the show she accepted Chad's cheating ways and she thought he'd change when they were married? She is so full of it and Chad more stupid for marying a gold digger. They weren't even genuine together or looked like they were really in love. Now he ruined his career for being stupid.
