Way too often people mistake the acquisition of materials things and status for happiness. Some of the folks who appear to have it all are the most unhappy people you’ll ever meet. Sometimes it takes personal war wounds, learning from experience and simply being sick and tired of being sick and tired to focus on what’s important and find TRUE happiness. In her recent interview with Kontrol Magazine, reality TV star Evelyn Lozada dished on finally learning the difference and finding happiness in things that money can’t buy. Check out a few chatworthy excerpts below.
On Why She Left the Basketball Wives Franchise
“ ‘Basketball Wives’ only allowed you to see one part of me, but now with my new show you get to see all sides of me!”
On Having Her Own Reality Series on OWN Network
“It’s been the most amazing experience. It’s a whole new world! Everyone is so professional, and serious about their business and how they handle it. It is so refreshing to be able to be a part of a network like that. OWN is about uplifting and being positive and I feel like it came at a perfect time in my life!”
Although she’s no longer on the show, Evelyn says she keeps in contact with former castmate Shaunie O’Neal and has mended the relationships with some of her other former castmates as well.
“If I’m no longer friends with people then that’s just the way it’s supposed to be. People come in and out of your life when they are supposed to be there. I’ve made peace with people that I’ve needed to make peace with by either reaching out to them or apologizing to them. I did that!”
On Where She is in Her Life Now
“I’m definitely in a much better space than I was a couple years ago, that has a lot to do with taking time off from my life to focus on things that I needed to focus on with myself such as anger issues and things that I was dealing with back then. I’m happy now because I’m in a happy relationship and I have a one-year-old son! Life is pretty good right now!”
