THE CIRCLE… At some point in your life you have used the phrase “Circle of Friends”, “Small Circle” or “Outside the Circle”. The meaning is all the same, you are either in or out of group. Sometimes the groups are small, sometimes they are big, but once you get comfortable within those groups, you rarely leave. Dating circles are no different, once you become accustom to dating a certain type of guy or girl, it is hard to date anyone else. When you add money to that equation, it is even more difficult. So, when you see women who only date athletes or rappers, that is just their dating circle, they are use to that type of lifestyle, they aren’t going back to the guy who works at Foot Locker. With all that being said Evelyn’s publicist says this report by Hip Hollywood courtesy of Jocks and Stiletto Jill isn’t true. Evelyn Lozada is back in the game, literally. According to several sources, and a few well placed eyewitness accounts, the reality star is dating Los Angeles Dodgers baseball player, Carl Crawford. Lozada was in NYC during the Dodgers late April series with the Mets and was spotted at Chase Field. Can’t say anyone should be mad if she was dating Crawford who signed a $142 million contract back in 2010, but according to Evelyn’s team she is still single, so you Foot Locker guys still have a chance.
