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!
More repercussions for Chad from this weekend’s head butting incident! VH1 just announced that Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson’s upcoming reality show ‘Ev & Ocho‘ has been taken off the schedule.
VH1 issued a statement regarding the matter: “Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series ‘Ev and Ocho’ from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it.”
Wow. I have to say I’m a little impressed that VH1 isn’t trying to cash in on what could’ve equaled higher ratings for the show.
TELL US – ARE YOU SAD YOU WON’T GET TO SEE THEIR WEDDING PREPARATIONS?
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.
According to Police Department Capt. Dale Engle, the argument started when she found a receipt for condoms in his car as they drove home from dinner and things escalated from there. Chad swears he head butted her on accident, but police took him away after seeing the lacerations on Eveyln’s forehead.
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.
Well, more bad news for Evelyn Lozada! Weeks after her spinoff Ev & Ocho started filming, it seems her hubby’s reality TV career has interfered with his professional one and he’s now out of a job! After years of juggling the two, Chad Ochocinco has apparently been dropped by the famous New England Patriots and is now a free agent!
TMZ reports that the team spent all day yesterday trying to trade Chad, before finally cutting him loose. Ouch! Confirming his firing on Twitter – where else – Chad thanked the fans. ”Thoroughly enjoyed the oppurtunity to play for the ‘Patriot’ organization … fans were f****** wicked awesome, I wish all of you the best.”
