Evelyn Lozada’s split from Chad Johnson was the focal point of the Basketball Wives Season 5 premiere, rehashing the developments of last year.
Ones that are clearly still raw, despite time partially healing the wounds.
Evelyn Lozada wed the NFL star in mid-2012, but they split just six weeks later after a fight that ended with him arrested for domestic violence.
Accused of infidelity after she allegedly found a condom receipt in the car, Chad Johnson head-butted her during the ensuing, heated argument.
Monday's Basketball Wives premiere showed Lozada deciding to go public with her story and meeting with her publicist to schedule a series of interviews.
There was a dramatic dinner with her castmates to discuss her relationship and a heart-to-heart between Lozada and her daughter Shaniece.
It was Shaniece who advised her mom not to reconcile with Johnson.
