Basketball Wives cast member Evelyn Lozada and daughter Shaneice Hairston are gracing the new cover of Rolling Out Magazine for their ‘Mother’s Day’ issue.

In addition to doing her first shoot with her daughter, Evelyn also sat down to chat about drawing the line between mothehoodr and friendship, making sure Shaneice is treated with respect while working in the entertainment industry and more. Peep a few excerpts from the interview below.

Evelyn and Shaniece on their bond with each other:

Shaniece: “I enjoy her company a lot; she’s my best friend.”

Evelyn: “Yeah, we are best friends … especially over the past eight, nine months, where we have been connected at the hip.  Even though I had her young, I always made sure that she knew I was mom, but that she could also come to me and confide in me.”

Evelyn on prepping Shaniece for the spotlight:

“Yes, I do stalk her Instagram. And yes she’s about to be 20 but, I am still her mother. So even as and when she did the Future video shoot, which was the first shoot that she ever did, I was there the entire 11 hours, just to make sure that she was treated like a lady and with respect. So yes, even though I am away, I always try to make sure that I am in the know, because I am very protective of her.”

 

Shaniece on being proud of Evelyn for leaving her relationship:

Shaniece: “When she left her domestic abuse relationship, I was really proud of her. I felt like she stood up for herself, and I think that she set a good example for other women. I knew that she had it in her, but I don’t think that everyone else did, so I’m really proud of her for that.”

Evelyn: “We were literally together for eight months since that happened [crying] … I even slept with her. After everything happened, and my life was upside down, it was tough because I had to live all of that out in the public … everybody had an opinion, and even now I’m sure there will be some people who say “b—-, you’re still crying over that?” … but she went through that with me from the beginning. She went to the hospital with me.”

Shaniece: “It was crazy, because I wasn’t even supposed to be there. I was living in L.A. and she was living in Miami, and I just happened to be there when it happened.”

Evelyn: “She was on vacation, and she was home when the situation happened, and it was very humiliating for me to have her see me like that. It was probably one of the biggest low points of my life — especially because I’m so protective of her. I’m mom, and I’m supposed to be strong, so it was hard to have her see me like that … so we were literally connected at the hip from that point on.”

Shaniece:” I think that it made us closer. Strangely, I didn’t think that we could get any closer, but I think that the situation made us grow closer.”
