I was just like maybe … and then I was like no, let me just pause,” Evelyn revealed.
And saying no may have been the best thing she ever did. “I’m glad that I did because then this other opportunity came which is good,” Ev stated. The opportunity she’s talking about is her own show. Livin’ Lozada follows Evelyn’s life as a mother of two, 22 year old Shaniece and 1 year old CJ, and fiancée to MLB star Carl Crawford.
