The reason? Evelyn, star of VH1’s Basketball Wives, suspects her NFL fiancé Chad has been cheating on her! A professional athlete being unfaithful? You don’t say!
Sources tell TMZ that Evelyn recently confronted Chad after she became suspicious about his behavior a.k.a. suspecting him of cheating.
While Evelyn hasn’t “officially” cancelled the wedding the summer nuptials have now been put on hold. Even worse for Evelyn, she was set to start filming a spinoff show with Chad in three weeks, but that is also now up in the air.
As for Evelyn and Chad, they are both keeping mum about the TMZ report for the time being.
This news isn’t exactly shocking as many have predicted the famewhoring attention loving duo would never make it down the aisle.
Plus back in Nov. 2010, Chad’s ex-girlfriend Rubi Pazmino, who won his VH1 dating show that summer, told Reality Tea exclusively that Chad was seeing both Evelyn and her at the same time. Rubi revealed she told Evelyn about Chad’s two timing ways, but Evelyn still continued to see Chad. Rubi ended up breaking off her relationship with Chad and soon afterwards he proposed to Evelyn.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON EVELYN PUTTING OFF THE WEDDING? ARE YOU SURPRISED?
UPDATE – Chad is now denying he and Evelyn have split, though he is not denying the TMZ report that their wedding is currently on hold.
Just moments ago, a fan tweeted to Chad that they heard he and Evelyn had broken up. He responded, “Broke a lamp or headboard? Not a chance in hell kind madam.”
He then tweeted to Evelyn: “@EvelynLozada I get off 3:30 and please put gas in my Prius before you come to pick me up.” Evelyn responded to Chad tweeting, “KISS THE BABY.”
Following the news of their engagement on Tuesday, many are still wondering if this is the real deal or just a publicity stunt. While the jury is still out on that, TMZ is reporting that VH1 has now offered Chad Ochocinco and his fiance Evelyn Lozada, star ofBasketball Wives, their own spin-off reality show.
According to TMZ, VH1 offered them the show just hours after the news of their 10-carat engagement hit. The show would focus mainly on the couple’s post-engagement relationship leading up to the wedding, which might be a problem as sources close to the couple stated on Tuesday that they would be having a looong engagement.
Sources add that the couple is very interested but won’t sign the dotted line unless “the money and situation are right.” VH1 reportedly wants to start filming right away.
There are also rumors that Evelyn might be pregnant after she tweeted a photo of a positive pregnancy test on Monday. Yes, she did. Though just moments later, she wrote, “I’m not PREGO!!!! Woooh hooooo.”
So to sum this up, you get engaged and your first thought is to tweet the ring photo along with a message to the haters, just a day after tweeting a picture of a positive pregnancy test, only to then tweet moments later that it was just a joke. Perhaps Evelyn and Chad are a perfect match after all!
And finally, we reported on Wednesday that Chad was two timing Evelyn with Rubi Pazmino, the winner of his VH1 dating show. Well we now have more details on what happened with Rubi and Chad.
Rubi tells us exclusively that she ultimately decided to end things with Chad after she found out he was cheating on her with Eve and many other women. Remember, TMZ reports that Chad and Evelyn have been together for 4 months though he was still dating Rubi as of 2 months ago. Despite the fact that Rubi ended things with him, Chad still continued to call, begging her to take him back with Evelyn still in the picture.
Even though Evelyn was well aware of Chad’s cheating ways (she and Rubi talked and compared notes), Evelyn apparently forgave Chad. Rubi tells us Chad’s attitude was one of “I am unfaithful, take it or leave it.” She decided to leave it. Rubi adds that Chad’s actions show he had no respect for either she or Evelyn.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CHAD’S CHEATING? WOULD YOU WATCH A REALITY SHOW WITH HIM & EVELYN?
TMZ broke the news late yesterday that NFL starChad Ochocinco, 32, and VH1 reality star Evelyn Lozada, 34, are officially engaged after 4 months of dating.
According to TMZ, Chad, who appeared on the last season of Dancing With The Starsand had his own VH1 dating show, popped the question to Evelyn yesterday in Cincinnati with a 10-carat engagement ring. Evelyn reportedly flew in to see him from Miami.
The Basketball Wives star wasted no time in sharing the good news with her twitter followers. She tweeted a photo of the super blinged engagement ring with the caption – “I’m no rabbit but 10 carats looks good on me!! Let the hating begin.” A photo of the ring is below.
Some are wondering if this the real deal or just a publicity stunt as the second season of Basketball Wives (you can watch the Season 2 trailer here!) is set to premiere in just weeks on December 12. Only time will tell. TMZ does add that the couple plans to be engaged for a while.
Here’s to hoping the 2nd time will be the charm for Eve as her last engagement to former NBA player Antoine Walker ended after 10 years with no walk down the aisle.
This engagement also came as a surprise as Chad was supposed to be dating Rubi Pazmino, you know, the winner of his VH1 dating show Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch. The show’s finale aired back in September and in her VH1 interview following the finale, Rubi stated she and Chad were indeed together and that Chad told her the rumors that he was dating Evelyn were false. “He said Evelyn’s a friend of his,” stated Rubi two months ago.
Well fast forward to today and it’s all but obvious Chad and Evelyn were more than just friends. We reached out to Rubi following the engagement news and she exclusively told Reality Tea that Chad was lying as he was indeed two-timing both she and Evelyn.
Even more shocking, Rubi revealed to us that she and Evelyn spoke about it, and that there were even many other women in the picture. And when it comes to the engagement, Rubi stated she has no clue about it, adding “maybe he has changed.”
Rubi also states on her twitter page that she will likely sell the promise ring Chad gave her on ebay. Guess Evelyn won the “prize” in this situation.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CHAD’S ENGAGEMENT TO EVELYN?
The finale of The Ultimate Catch ended last night with Chad Ochocinco throwing us for a loop by actually picking one of the finalists, contrary to the rumors that he didn’t pick anyone.
The lucky Mrs. Ochocinco ended up being Rubi Pazmino, which came as no surprise considering she was his #1 pick from the start.
The shocker however is the fact that Chad and Rubi are still together! In a new interview with VH1, Rubi discusses how she and Chad are making things work, talks about her singing career, and also addresses the rumors that Chad is datingBasketball Wives‘ Evelyn Lozada.
Excerpts from Rubi’s interview below -
What has it been like since the show? Is this, in fact, for real? Have you been pursuing something with Chad?
Yes. We’ve definitely been talking. We talk all the time, everyday. And we definitely have an amazing connection. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say, but we do get to see each other and it’s been way more intimate and way more real since the show because you don’t have all these other women getting in the way. You get to have real conversations. There’s no stress, no time limits. There’s a lot of a possibility.
What do you make of the rumor that he’s dating Basketball Wives‘ Evelyn?
Even while we were on the show a lot of girls were saying he was with her. There have always been rumors. It wasn’t a huge shock to me when I heard that it was out there in the media. But just like with anybody, when you hear a rumor you just ask like, “Hey what’s going on?” I asked him about it. He said Evelyn’s a friend of his, they didn’t have anything and they’re friends. And that’s all. If someone tells you something, you just have to believe them. I’m not gonna sit there and ask him every two seconds. I asked him once and he answered it and that’s enough.
Was your career as a singer ever a consideration for signing up for the show?
You always think about your career, wondering if a given situation is gonna be a negative or a positive. I wondered, “Hey is this gonna be something that’s bad for what I do?” Obviously that’s a no. I’d be a super lazy person not to take advantage of the things I’m reaping now because of the show. It’d be dumb. And what I do of course depends on fan base and popularity and if this helps it, great. And Chad absolutely has no problem with it.
Would you go as far as to call it love?
I think love is a super strong word. Do we have the material and the hard work to make it to love? Yes. I think we definitely have the material to get there. But should we say love love love as of right now? I don’t know. It’s a love. Like I luv him, like L-U-V. He probably feels the same way about me. But we definitely have the potential to be able to get there.
Rubi might be in for some bumps in this relationship as one of the show’s contestants, Heather, gave an interview to Bossip, during which she claimed Chad was still trying to hook up with her after eliminating her on the show. Heather also alleged Chad was still calling his former Dancing With The Stars partner Cheryl Burke, and sending her gifts while filming the show.
VH1 has now unveiled the cast of Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch! The dating show follows NFL superstar and former Dancing With The Stars alum Chad Ochocinco as he tries to find love amongst 85 women. Yes 85 women.
However Chad, who was romantically linked with his DWTS partner Cheryl Burke earlier this year, will be eliminating majority of those women to get to his final 17 top choices in the premiere episode of the show, which debuts tonight July 11th at 9/8c on VH1.
There was a minor scandal involving Chad and his choice of women that hit the blogs as filming began on the show last month. A contestant on the show and someone working in production alleged that Chad did not want any African American women on his show, and that he wanted “all the black girls to be “cut”, except for 1.”
Chad allegedly wanted to keep the Latina and brunette White girls because he believed they are “better” for him. The producers had to Chad into keeping two black women as part of his final 17.
Chad did deny the claims, stating that “certain girls” were mad they got sent home and that he’s colorblind. Oddly enough, a look at the 17 finalists show only 3 black women.
Also premiering tonight is the second season of Terell Owen’s reality show – The T.O. Show. VH1 promises season 2 will feature TO leaving Buffalo, rocking a wig, possibly rekindling an old flame, all while embracing fatherhood. Also returning are TO’s two longtime friends, Kita Williams and Monique Jackson, to yell at him help him make better life decisions.The new season premieres tonight at at 10:30/9:30c.
