Evelyn Lozada says despite her past relationship drama, she always knew she’d end up a wife. While promoting her new book, Evelyn talked about her relationship with Chad Ochocinco – not initially expecting much and how it feels to have both her love life and career booming.

Check out the excerpts:

EBONY: I’m sure he does. Was it difficult to accept Chad’s marriage proposal after dating past athletes or have you grown as a woman and just feel content and you know its right?

Evelyn: On the show, I said I would blow off every athlete. Then Chad comes in like a hurricane. I met him on twitter and I’m like, “We’ll hang out and whatever happens, happens. I thought I was going film this show, have a great time and then you know we end up meeting and we end up dating, falling in love. Blah blah blah. You know all that stuff. Then we ended up engaged. But you know they always say, when you know, you know. I knew. I was like this is supposed to be my husband. We’re a train wreck sometimes, but it is what is it. We’re like the same people, he gets me and I get mad at him and it’s not perfect, but we love each other.

EBONY: Is this a surreal moment for your love life and career?

Evelyn: No, I always knew in my mind that I was going to get married, but I never thought in a million years that I would be with somebody like Chad and that my wedding would be filmed and televised. I love make up. It’s something that I’ve always loved. I was showing my manager a photo when I was literally like in the 4th grade, and I snuck and wore eyeliner to my class pictures. My mom was so pissed off because I did it behind her back. But I’ve always loved make up.

And in addition to talking about her new book, Evelyn revealed more details about her looming clothing line.

EBONY: Can you give us any details on your clothing line? When that might debut or are you still working on that project?

Evelyn: We’re in the early stages on that but I will say that it is going to be a line of maxi dresses and they’re going to be very affordable. It’s going to be around Spring 2013. That’s all I wear in Florida!
