In August of this year, Evelyn Lozada and then-husband Chad Ochocinco made front page news for a domestic violence incident that left Evelyn in stitches on a hospital bed. Following the dispute, Chad was arrested, relieved of his endorsements and his contract with the Miami Dolphins. A month later, the couple divorced after 42 days of marriage, the shortest in reality TV history.

Since then, Lozada adopted a narrative of recovery and redemption. She was featured in “People Magazine,” in a story entitled “Leaving My Broken Marriage.” She appeared on “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” where she was charged with examining her behavior and recognizing how unresolved issues from her childhood contributed to her dysfunctional relationship with Chad.

The “Basketball Wives” star, best known for fighting and hurling glasses at women on the hit VH1 show, seemed to be turning over a new leaf. She began to tweet inspirational messages and even posed for PETA to combat cruelty against animals.

Given her change in behavior and image, her most recent headline-grabbing interview could be seen as back-sliding. In an interview with Rumor Fix, Lozada was asked to opine on second chances and if she believed Chad deserved one:

“I do believe in second chances. I actually had someone ask me that recently, and I do. I’m not bitter, things happen and yeah, I do believe in second chances. I would want somebody to give me a second chances, and you never know.”

Her statement is interesting given Chad’s interview last week with ESPN’s First Take, where he said he was getting help for his propensity toward domestic violence, admitted to being unfaithful during their marriage and revealed he believed he deserved a second chance.

Evelyn’s choices are certainly hers to make but you have to wonder if reconciliation and another try at a relationship is the most healthy option for these two.

What are your thoughts, Clutchettes? Would you be surprised if Evelyn gave Chad a second chance?

    It’s hard to know what to believe from people who are reality TV stars. So much of what they say and do is calculated for effect. It’s not even apparent if this marriage was real or not. So who knows what is really going on. I don’t.

    In the back of my mind, I always thought once the smoke clears, she’d be back with him. If that’s what she chooses, that’s her perrogative. I think she will give him a second chance. Chad is a charmer, humorous, can bring her down to a 4 when she’s at a 10 and he may be good at other things that Evelyn find attractive……hell, she may even be sprung. According to reports, unforunately he has a history of not being faithful and a batterer. Evelyn is insecure and thinks she’s “old” . She equates that with growing old alone which she does not want to do so she probably would go back to him and tolerate his shortcomings. Yeah, she’s a pretty girl but she probably isn’t being approached by many men beacuse of her reputation which isanother reason why she probably would go back. Just my opinion….

    In other words Dumb and Dumber are really already back together as Nacho Dumbo spilled the beans of their “communication” around that protective order. Glad Jen wised up and is no where near Evilyn.
