Shoetique owner-turned-reality star Evelyn Lozada covers the August 2013 issue of Latina magazine. Inside, the ghetto a**, loud mouth Basketball Wives fame whore talks about growing up in NYC, raising her daughter, being a reality star, her current relationship with her ex-husband Chad Johnson, the head-butting incident, starting a foundation for victims of domestic violence and much more. This issue hits newsstands July 9th. Below are some highlights:

On growing up in NYC:

“I was born in Brooklyn. I was born in Bushwick, on Putnam Avenue, then lived in Ridgewood, Queens and then when I was around 11, we moved to the Bronx.”

On raising her now 20-year-old daughter Shaniece:

“We’re like best friends but she knows when it comes to me being her mother that, you know, I’m going to be on you’re a** and I’m going to check you about anything that’s going on. And I think now and for the rest of her life, whether she gets married or not, she’s going to come and she’s going to be like, ‘Mom, this is how I feel’ because I’m really honest and straightforward. But she’s different from me in a lot of ways. She’s very, very quiet and very reserved.”

On being a reality TV star:

“When it first aired, I remember first thinking, ‘I hate my voice.’ I was like, ‘Do I really sound like that? I sound very New York!’ But I guess I am. If you give them footage to air, they’re going to use it. You always hear people saying, ‘Oh well, they edited it in a certain way.’ No. The things that I’ve said, I’ve said. The things that I’ve done, I’ve done. And I’m not always proud of it, but I did it.”

On her relationship with Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson:

“When times were good, times were great. We would laugh a lot. It was just one of those things… There was nothing in the middle — when it was great, it was great; but when it was bad, it was real bad. There was no in between.

Eva Longoria Looks Flawless On The November 2012 Issue Of Latina Magazine; Talks Politics & Executive Producing

The beautiful Eva Longoria looks flawless on the November 2012 issue of Latina Magazine. Eva speaks to Latina about being the cochair of President Barack Obama‘s reelection campaign and her mission to educate Latinos on the president’s policies. Switching gears to her TV projects, Eva shares on her transition from in front of the camera to behind it as an executive producer behind two of TV’s most highly anticipated shows, NBC’s Ready for Love and Lifetime’s Devious Maids.

On being cochair of President Obama’s reelection campaign:

“When they asked me to officially be a cochair, it was not just to put my face on something,” says Longoria. “My mission is to educate the public on Obama’s record, specifically with the two communities that pertain tome: women and Latinos.

On transitioning from actress to executive producer through her new production company, UnbeliEVAble Entertainment: 

“It’s a great position to be in … I want to be the go-to person for amazing projects.” 

On finding the right men among hundreds for her new show Ready for Love:

“I’m a woman. I can tell if they want to find their soul mate or if they are just looking for stardom.” 

On why education makes her feel powerful: 

“As an actress, there’s a stereotype that we can’t be smart, we can’t be political, we can’t be civic-minded or engaged. We just have to stay in front of the camera and look pretty,” Longoria says. “No, I’m human. I can do more.”

Is She Bigger Than NYC? Lala Vazquez-Anthony Covers Latina Magazine & Talks Trusting Melo, Being Satisfied & Having Good Family Support

Media personality, TV Host, Reality Star and Business Mogul Lala Vazquez-Anthony is covering the April 2012 issue of Latina magazinewhich hits newsstands on Tuesday, March 13th. In the cover story, the talented Brooklyn native talks about giving her husband, NBA Player Carmelo Anthony his space, trusting him, being satisfied, having good family support and much more. Lala is doing a great job at branding herself, I respect what she does. She is also well-spoken, educated and very talented. Be sure to watch La La’s Full Court Life beginning March 19th on VH1 at 9pm. Below are some excerpts:

On giving her husband Carmelo Anthony space and how they have lasted 8 years.

“It’s been 15 days since I’ve seen my husband. That’s a long time for us to go without seeing each other. But I went on this whirlwind of launching the makeup line and my husband’s a basketball player. It’s not like he can say, ‘Hey, I’m not playing in the game today, I’m going to meet up with my wife somewhere.’ We’ve been together for eight years and I think we’ve lasted this long because we give each other space. But there’s also that time where it can be too much space.”

On not being satisfied, looking for the next thing and balancing it all.

“I’m never satisfied—career-wise, I mean—I’m always looking for the next thing; that’s just my personality,” she says. “Why can’t I be a great mom, wife, TV host, actress, producer, have my own reality show and makeup line? The hard part is the balancing of it all.”

On trusting her husband Carmelo

“I wouldn’t say it’s a misconception, because there are a lot of athletes who do live a certain life with women everywhere,” La La says. “So you can’t act like it’s the craziest thing you’ve ever heard, because it is out there. But I’m secure in my relationship. I’m happy with having my own thing going on. I don’t spend all day worrying about what he’s doing. In that sense, I trust him.”
