UPDATED 2: TMZ is reporting that, as I predicted, VH1 has cancelled Ev & Ocho stating, “”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.”
There sure is a lot of stupid floating around lately.
It seems that Chad Ochocinco Johnson and his new wife Evelyn are off to a rough start. They just got married on July 4th
as part of a reality show storyline but it seems the bloom is already off the rose. The Sun Sentinel is reporting that Chad was arrested tonight for domestic violence after Chad allegedly head-butted Evelyn while the two were inside a vehicle.
This situation could cause all kinds of difficulties for the pair. They have been filming their reality show for VH1, Eve & Ocho which is due to premiere next month. Up until now the pair was just having trouble figuring out what they wanted their last names to be. Chad has gone back to Johnson, but Evelyn had only recently changed hers to Ochocinco. Perhaps now, Evelyn can just go back to Lozada. It’s really the best option of the three anyway.
Chad may have some trouble keeping himself on the Dolphins roster now as well. The Dolphins tend to frown on players with criminal problems. The Sun Sentinel also mentioned that Chad’s potty mouth was already an issue for the Dolphin’s coach:
The Dolphins have 12 receivers on the training camp roster, and while Johnson is a starter there is no guarantee he’ll make it to the 53-man roster. Last week, during the first episode of HBO’s Hard Knocks reality series, coach Joe Philbin chastised Johnson for using too many curse words during a press conference, and told the show Johnson needed to “get in line” with what the Dolphins organization is trying to represent.
When will these couples learn not to do a reality show? This marriage isn’t going to last a full year! Kim Kardashian was married longer than this!
UPDATE: And as expected Joe Philbin wasted no time in cutting Chad from the Dolphins. He was officially released from the team today only hours after getting out of jail. The police report said that Chad was raging that to Evelyn that he “Didn’t give a fuck about his career.” Looks like his career doesn’t give a fuck about him either. Now we wait for VH1 to decide what to do.
That is quite an expensive head butt, Chad.
