Evelyn Alexandra Lozada is best known for being one of the original cast members of VH1’s ‘Basketball Wives.’ The show tracks the lives of wives, ex-wives, and girlfriends of professional basketball players through the camera lens.

Not much is known about her educational background.
Lozada’s professional career began when she moved to Miami in 2007. Thereafter, Lozada established her presence in the entertainment world through ‘Basketball Wives.’ Among all the wives on the show, Lozada is perhaps the one with the most tumultuous romantic life. She has been married once and has two children, daughter Shaniece Hairston (born in 1993) and son, Carl Leo Crawford (born in 2014). She has also had two long-term engagements that ended before evolving into marriage.
On August 11, 2012, Lozada’s former husband, Chad Johnson was apprehended on a charge of domestic violence. He later entered a plea of no contest and received a year of probation. Despite all the hurdles and tough times, Evelyn has managed to create a luxurious life for herself and her family.
