The Queens Court star got engaged to finalist LaVon Lewis after finding true love on the Peacock dating show. On Evelyn’s 47th birthday in December, the pair celebrated their relationship’s first anniversary.
“I didn’t know that he was going to propose that day,” Evelyn told People in an interview published March 16. “I didn’t know what I was walking into. He was being very sneaky and, in all honesty, I was a little irritated because I’m such an alpha female and I’m kind of like, why do I have to pack? Why do I have to do this? It was really, really difficult for me to just let go and allow him to do his thing.”
In front of their friends and family, LaVon, 42, got down on one knee. Nonetheless, he acknowledged that arranging for the Basketball Wives star to attend the festive event in Los Angeles wasn’t easy.
“The thing about Evelyn is, it is very hard to surprise her,” he explained. “I told her to pack her bags, we’re going somewhere. She was blindfolded until she got to the front door. She walked in to about 20 close friends and family and the big ‘marry me’ letters, roses on the ground, things like that.”
The Queens Court series also included Nivea and Tamar Braxton hoping for a second chance at love in addition to the love story between Evelyn and LaVon. In the finale, Tamar proposed to contestant Jeremy “JR” Robinson.
Tamar told him on the episode, “I prayed for somebody to understand me and not look at me and my flaws and just accept me for who I am. And then I met you. And then I saw every single thing that I ever prayed for as a child.”
