Estranged Wife of NFL Star Chad Ochocinco Johnson Opens Up About Alleged Domestic Violence In

Two-Part Series Premiere Airing

Saturday, September 15 and 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network

Los Angeles, CA – The SEASON premiere of THE GROUNDBREAKING NEW SERIES “Iyanla: Fix My Life” features life coach Iyanla Vanzant as she confronts the heartbreak and personal crisis of “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada, estranged wife of NFL star Chad Ochocinco Johnson. Vanzant works to uncover the source of Lozada's innermost pain, giving her the tools to let go and move forward with her life. Explosive secrets are uncovered and difficult truths are faced in the powerful two-part series premiere airing Saturday, September 15 and 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

In “Iyanla: Fix My Life," Vanzant travels the country on a mission to restore relationships and heal lives in a riveting and revealing new series. Earlier this summer, Vanzant visited Miami to meet newlyweds Johnson and Lozada and explore the couple’s publicly volatile relationship. Despite Johnson choosing not to participate in the session, Vanzant and Lozada connected one-on-one and tapped into the deep-rooted anger, resentment and insecurities that have plagued Lozada.

Weeks later, after the shocking allegations of a domestic violence incident came to light, Vanzant reconnected with an emotionally raw Lozada in New York for a no-holds-barred conversation that details the eye-opening events of the night that led Lozada to file for divorce.

    is it just me but why do i not have any sympathy for a violent arrogant bully who has on more than one occasion displayed violent behavior on more than one person as far as jumping over tables to get to someone or throwing a wine bottle at them and bragged about it and thought it was funny. This superficial broad has now found a sensitive platform that touches many women and wanna get some sympathy. I only have one word “Karma”

    In life you live and learn and grow from your mistakes. Evelyn is in the process, cut her some slack.

    Women want to live a fancy life, there is a price to pay for it, miserable, un-happy behind closed doors, not saying all women. Evlyn I like her, she seem down to earth not funny style, like the rest and I also like Tammy and shauni, them 3 real women, the rest full of bull**** I feel Evlyn pain and sorrow, yeah Chad has money, but he reminds me of any other brother in the hood. Chad is a womanizer, everybody make mistakes no doubt. She played with fire and got burnt and thats okay. She can learn from her mistakes, get a another man, who means her well in life. Good luck to Evlyn.
