Evelyn Lozada will soon be attending her first high school prom with one of her fans.
“I was just asked to the prom by one of my Twitter followers…and I gladly accepted!” Evelyn wrote on her blog.
Anthony Nelson, 18, is a student with lofty goals, one of which was to secure the “Basketball Wives” star as his date to the West Bloomfield High prom.
“Since your [sic] single now, wanna go to prom with me,” Anthony tweeted. After Ev agreed to attend, Anthony wrote: "Never in my life have I been so happy."
Evelyn admits that she might be looking forward to the event as much as young Anthony.
“I have to say that I’m very excited,” she wrote. “The reason why I’m so excited is because I never had the opportunity to attend my own prom. During that time of my life, I was becoming a teenage mom and pregnant with my daughter Shaniece.”
Evelyn promised to keep her fans posted as she preps for the big night. She’s even considering letting fans choose her outfit.
“All I know is that Anthony wants me to wear red and he is wearing black/white,” said Evelyn, who took the opportunity to express her pride in her soon-to-be escort.
“I’m very happy to know that Anthony is attending his prom and graduating high school, what a beautiful accomplishment. I encourage all of you to stay in school and attend college! There is nothing better than having an education and bright future,” she said.
According to sources close to Evelyn, she’s expecting a night she won’t forget.
“She couldn’t help but say yes,” said the source. “She is definitely looking forward to prom! She wants the whole enchilada, even the corsage!”
