Evelyn Lozada sits down with ABC News’ Amy Robach for “Nighline” to talk about her split from Chad Johnson

After a domestic violence incident ended her 41 day marriage to Chad Johnson, Evelyn Lozada breaks her silence and confesses, “I still love him.”

I think the allure of fame has gotten a knocked down a few pegs because of Chad and Evelyn’s “saga” (for lack of a better term). Neither of them stands to gain anything from this. They are not speaking to one another and both their lives have changed forever.

Sympathetically speaking, I hate to see Evelyn in so much pain, but there will be many people who look at this interview and think “you reap what you sow” — not in terms of the physical assault she endured, but because of the way she conducted herself and the manner in which she treated others on national television. I commend her for sticking to her convictions and doing what is best for herself and setting an example for her daughter.

Chad may very well never see another snap in the NFL, but his life must go on as a parent and perhaps as a mentor with a strong cautionary tale for others athletes or people in positions of power and influence. He has so much personality and talent that he can hopefully channel into better things for future.

My Twitter timeline is sure to be ablaze tonight as this interview airs tonight at 11:35 PM.
