|Not just the marriage, but the job and show too|
Evelyn Lozada of 'Basketball Wives' fame is filing for divorce from Chad Johnson (formerly known as Chad Ochocinco) after only 41 days as a result of a domestic dispute that happened over the weekend.
In case you haven't heard, the story goes something like this: They got married on July 4th, 2012 (as in last month), Chad legally changed his name back to Chad Johnson. The stories then differ slightly but at some point during the weekend, Evelyn found a receipt in the car for condoms and confronted him about it. (According to radaronline.com, a 30 year old named Beverly Shiner claimed she had an ongoing affair with Johnson from January until May.) Arguing ensued and then, allegedly, Johnson head-butted her in the face after which she ran to a neighbors house and called the police. She had what appeared to be a
3" gash on her forehead and was later taken to the hospital to have it treated. Johnson was taken into custody and released on $2500 bail. For those of you who watch Basketball Wives like me, weren't particularly shocked by this as we've witnessed Evelyn throwing wine bottles, hopping over tables to pounce on her castmates and just being really aggressive in general. As for Johnson, well, he's a cocky A-hole who plays professional contact sports for a living. That sounds like a recipe for disaster to me!
Now, not only was this a terrible thing but later that day the Miami Dolphins also released (fired) him from his position and VH1 cancelled the upcoming show "Ev & Ocho" (which was already completed).
Stay tuned tomorrow to find out how this fiasco has now made me a fan of the show "Hard Knocks" on HBO. I can almost guarantee it will be your new favorite, too. It's basically a reality show that documents the Miami Dolphins training camp. My husband has been wanting me to watch it for ages and when I found out that Chad and Ev were prominently featured on the pilot episode, I was IN! Wait until you hear all of the juicy stuff that comes outta that show. I kept having to make Mike pause it because I couldn't write that fast! Seriously, it's that good.
