An unfortunate number of people – including plenty of women – have piled on to Evelyn Lozada following accusations that her husband, Chad Johnson, head-butted her during an argument.
As previously mentioned here, the complaints largely stem on Evelyn’s behavior on Basketball Wives and how that purportedly makes her a hypocrite incapable of speaking out against domestic violence. I think these folks can fall down a well, but whatever. There’s someone who can relate to Evelyn in terms of abuse and being in the public eye and she’s declaring her support publicly.
Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star and singer K. Michelle recently wrote:
"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."
As for Evelyn’s behavior on the show:
"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."
