Evelyn Lozada is becoming a businesswoman in her own right. She owns a boutique. She’s an author. She sells her own T-shirts, and she’s launched her own makeup line.
It’s probably safe to assume that Evelyn looks up to moguls like Oprah Winfrey, Kandi Burruss and even “Basketball Wives” executive producer Shaunie O’Neal, but those aren’t her only professional role models.
“I respect her as a businesswoman as she is very smart,” Evelyn said in reference to fellow reality star Kim Kardashian.
Many criticize Kim, who first came to fame after partnering with Ray J in a sex tape, because her rise seemed to encourage young women to take shortcuts in life. Kim’s romp with Ray J years ago has now helped foster a reality TV franchise, a fashion line at Sears, a fragrance and more for Kim.
However, Evelyn Lozada can see the positive side of that.
“She went from doing one thing and then used that to just blow up her brand,” Evelyn told RadarOnline.com. “If I can have a little bit of the success that she has had, I will be happy.”
