In light of the domestic violence charges in the very brief wedding of Basketball Wives‘ stars Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco Johnson, Evelyn has cancelled all her upcoming publicity engagements. I can’t say I blame her. When the news of Chad’s abuse arrest became public, Evelyn filed for divorce, the couple’s wedding spin-off Ev & Ocho was pulled by VH1, and Chad was fired from the Dolphins. Probably not Chad’s best week, I’d say. What a d-bag.
The second half of Evelyn’s scheduled book tour to promote The Wives Association: Inner Circle has been put on hold, as well as several club public appearances. Evelyn will no longer be appearing alongside RHONJ‘s Teresa Giudice at a September book expo. Sidebar, can you imagine those two ladies together? Teresa flipping tables and Evelyn hurling bottles of Fabellini? Terrifying!
It’s a sad day when TMZ is considered a viable source to which one goes with their legal and professional woes. And apparently Chad Johnson is in a very sad place. The former Ochocinco, who was married to Evelyn Lozada for a whopping 42 days before he head-butted his way right into divorce court and professional disgrace, has finally spoken out about his misdeed. Dang – their wedding photos were barely in the tabloids before their divorce papers were pending! Sheesh.
“I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death. To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies. I will stay positive and get through this tough period in my life,” Chad beseeches.
After getting into a physical fight over the weekend, which ended in Evelyn fleeing to the neighbor’s house and Chad winding up in jail, Evelyn has reportedly moved out of their home and is planning to press charges against her husband of less than 6 weeks. Evelyn reportedly told the police officers who took her statement that she intends to press charges against her husband, the recently fired Miami Dolphins wide receiver.
New details emerged yesterday, chronicling the escalation of the fight, which ended up with Evelyn being treated for facial lacerations and Chad in jail. According to the police report, things got so heated that Evelyn fled on foot to escape, while Chad circled the neighborhood looking for her, yelling that he didn’t ‘give a f***’ about his career. Evelyn called 911 from a neighbor’s house.
It’s getting to be that time again! We can stop watching reruns and fillers, because soon our favorite reality shows, along with a few new train wrecks will be premiering. VH1 has just released the premiere dates of three of its programs.
T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle will be returning on Monday, September 3rd at 9PM ET. We’ll follow Tip (who may be the busiest dude in the world) as he continues to star in the Starz series “Boss” and prepares to film the movie “Identity Theft” with Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy. As if that’s not enough, he’ll be promoting his new book and releasing his ninth album…all while filming his family’s reality show.
“She’s a Johnson!” Shaunie gushed to Vh1, adding that everything about the day was perfect. As for the bride and groom they looked amazing according to Shaunie. Describing Chad’s outfit, Shaunie shares: “When he came down [the aisle], that boy was sharp! I’ve been talking about his outfit ever since I left. He look so good!”
Ocho sported a navy blue “rich looking suit” that was “tailored perfectly.” And his shoes even matched his outfit. Well, that’s success! “They went with that suit and that wedding,” a happy drunk Shaunie slurred announced.
