Evelyn Lozada had a pretty tumultuous year in the media after the previous season of Basketball Wives set the internet ablaze with debates about colorism and Ochocinco alike but recently, the reality star revealed that she's ready to turn over a new leaf.

Earlier this week in an Instagram post, Evelyn revealed that she has been delivert after her baptism at Freedom Church in California. She explained in an interview with Baller Alert:

"Something was missing, it was on my heart, it was on my mind [to get Baptized]."

Sometimes divine intervention is exactly what we need to help us shift our focus, check ourselves and prioritize what's most important, and according to Evelyn, part of this process has been staying away from doing things "her way", including but not limited to sex.

"I'm done with premarital sex. I felt like… [in] those relationships I lost a piece of me, every time I had sex [out of wedlock]."

I'm a strong believer in soul ties, quite frankly, because that sh*t is real, sis. Everything that looks good isn't good for your spirit, and that's why Evelyn decided to trade out premarital sex for a stronger relationship with God. She said:

"My soul needed something positive."

Although this isn't the first time Evelyn has given her life over to God, she hopes to make what she says are some much-needed personal changes this time around. According to the 43-year-old mother-of-two, although her actions over the past few months have been regrettable, her main focus now is doing the self-work:

"But even with filming last season, you walk away, and I process things. I think about things, and I'm like 'oh my gosh, maybe that wasn't the right way to handle that situation.' Or 'What is my daughter going to think when she sees this?' I always know that I need to do better."

Evelyn shared that she hopes her newfound connection with God will remedy some of the areas of her life where she previously lost control and hopes to find redemption on her journey to healing. Along with celibacy, the reality star says that she's ready and willing to pass any test of faith that comes her way:

"As a woman, a mother, somebody that's trying to accomplish things at life, I know I have to do better with how I respond to certain situations. This season whenever we start filming ['Basketball Wives'], whenever that is, it's supposed to be at the top of the year. It's going to be the real true facts because me getting baptized and really wanting to do it for God in the right way, it's not going to be easy. But I'm determined to pass the test."

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
