I wasn’t able to post this video on Friday for whatever reason that I can’t remember at the moment, but incase you haven’t seen it or simply want to watch it again I have it for you below.
In the interview Evelyn talks about the incident, and how hard it was for her to walk away:
What she wants for Chad now:
I would like for him to tell me that he got help and that he is working on himself, whenever I talk to my sister or my girlfriend, I always say I want the best for him. I really do! And he is a good guy who made a bad choice. He loves football, he is very driven, a great dad. He made a bad choice that destroyed his life and I hate that I’m connected to that, I do, but it was his choice. It wasn’t mine.
It would have to take sometime [for us to speak again]. I love him very much and I think that us being away from each other is the right thing. So when is he going to say sorry? [...] It’s the hardest thing in the world to walk away from someone that you really love/ But you have to walk away because I have to protect myself.
What happened during the head-butt
And then the next thing I know, he grabbed me by here [pointing to her head] and he head-butted me. I felt blood coming down my face… and I looked at him and I said, ‘You just head-butted me?’ And it just — everything just felt if it was in slow motion.
He was gone to me, like, it wasn’t him. He got out of the car, really, really quick and ran into the house, and I said to myself, ‘I need to get out of here.
Why she filed for divorce
I said to myself, ‘I’m never going to go through that again, ever. I don’t think any woman should ever have to feel like that or be fearful of her husband.
I was a very good fiancé and wife to Chad. I did everything I could to make his life better. The person on ‘Basketball Wives’ is not the person at home. I don’t think he would marry me if I was.”
Another part of the interview that stuck out to me was when the interviewer asked Evelyn about the people who are saying she deserved it because of the way she acts on Basketball Wives. Evelyn’s response was pretty much ‘saying that is like saying, look at what she’s wearing she deserved to be raped,’ which is very true! Like she said “I don’t think any woman should ever have to feel like that or be fearful of her husband.”
