Do you, dear readers, take Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco, to have and to hold, on Tivo and DVR, in boredom and in drama, in smackdowns and in make-ups, forsaking all groupies, as long as the season lives? I
do am having cold feet. Unfortunately, there’s nothing I can do about it.
As Reality Tea reported yesterday, the Basketball Wives star, who of course, has never been the wife of a basketball player and her NFL player fiancé (why are they on that show?) are getting a spin-off. The show will follow the couple’s wedding planning up until their big day…should it actually happen.
VH1 confirms that recent rumors are true, and the premiere will occur in September of this year. How will I ever wait that long to see if Evelyn is able to make an honest man out of Chad? The working title of the series is the super catchy Ev and Ocho. If you say it fast, it almost sounds like a fancy brand of olive oil. If Evelyn starts hawking her own brand of EVOO in the near future, we’ll know she reads this blog…and she may have lawsuit on her hands.
The series will be comprised by eight half-hour episodes, culminating in a special two-part wedding special. The press release cites that fans of Evelyn’s, who have watched her life unfold for four seasons on Basketball Wives, will get a special behind-the-scenes peek at the couple’s impending nuptials. We have seen Ev and Ocho’s (that will never get old) relationship on screen since its inception, so it’s only natural we get to be in on the wedding-planning planning as well, right? Hey, it worked (so far) for Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann!
Of course, the show won’t be all dress fittings, cake tastings, and guest list debacles, although, celebrity wedding planner Diann Valentine will be on-hand to juggle the pressures of choreographing the “star” studded extravaganza. The program will also focus on the hardships faced by Ev and Ocho (still not old) as they face rumors of infidelity, nosy paparazzi, and criticism in the media. Perhaps they could avoid such things by not making their wedding into a media circus…but I digress. The audience will also witness family turmoil regarding who will accompany Evelyn down the aisle.
Make sure to choose between the chicken and prime rib, find your plus one, and RSVP to what is sure to be the most entertaining wedding series ever…on VH1…that debuts in September…and stars Ev and Ocho.
