Prom season is upon us, and it’s difficult not to want to revisit the magic of slow dances and wrist corsages. After missing her own high school prom, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada wasn’t going to turn down a second chance at what television and movies have led us to believe is every girl’s dream–or a taste of Michigan’s finest cuisine. The 37-year-old VH1 staple kindly accepted the invitation from Anthony Nelson, a senior at West Bloomfield High School in Bloomfield, Michigan, who popped the question on Twitter earlier this year.
After taking plenty of photos and dining at Coach Insignia, the two danced the night away at the Detroit Country Club. Check out more of Evelyn’s reaction to a night out with one of her biggest fans:
OMG! Can I say “THE BEST TIME EVER?!?!”
I just attended West Bloomfield High School’s prom in Bloomfield, MI at the Detroit Country Club. Last year, out the blue, my Twitter follower Anthony Nelson, a Senior at West Bloomfield High School, asked me to be his prom date via Twitter and naturally, I said YES! He even requested that I wear red, which I did! LOL
Unfortunately, I couldn’t attend my prom when I was in high school because I was pregnant with my daughter Shaniece, but this was such an awesome experience and I was so honored.
I want to thank Anthony and his mom Sean Nelson for opening their home to me! Anthony’s entire family and friends came by his house to see him off to prom and it was amazing, he even bought me a corsage!!! I’ve never had a corsage! You guys don’t understand how HAPPY I was!! My date was decked out in a custom made tuxedo and black Chanel shoes looking as handsome as ever.
Thank you also to my stylist Jason Sky for making me feel beautiful on my first prom night and to my publicist Danika Berry for coordinating everything.
And, thank you to everyone who came out to support and West Bloomfield High School for having me!!!!!
Dinner was good too, my prom date took me to Coach Insignia. #Ifeelspecial
I had the time of my LIFE!
We hope this teaches kids to dream big, and we hope Anthony had the time of his life. Have fun making your future dates feel adequate in comparison.
