Taking the fashion and reality TV worlds by storm, Lozada is making quite a name for herself on VH1’s Basketball Wives. New York born and raised, she grew up with an “empire state of mind.” After becoming an assistant to an entertainment attorney, her career was jump started into overdrive. Moving to Miami in 2007, the bombshell now co-owns Dulce, a high-end shoe boutique in Coral Gables, Florida. Needless to say, she has since become “one of the hottest reality stars on the scene and everyone is taking notice,” including Maxim magazine.

As on-again, off-again fiance of New England Patriot’s wide receiver Chad Ochocino, Lozada recently scorched a Maxim photoshoot in a skimpy black bathing suit and an all-too-revealing silver top. She is used to baring all for the camera, but she confessed to the magazine that the experience was “truly exhilarating,” saying:

“I was so thrilled and honored to shoot with Maxim magazine! This was one of the most professional and best shoots I’ve ever had.”

With a new season of Basketball Wives set to premiere on February 20, Lozada will be returning to your TV screen with Shaunie O’Neal, Suzie Ketcham, Jennifer Williams, and Royce Reed!  If that’s not enough for you, the reality star will be releasing a book titled Inner Circle: The Wives Association.
