The news just keeps getting worse and worse for Chad Johnson aka Ochocinco. Not only has he been arrested for beating his wife of only one month, Evelyn Lozada, accused of having an affair after she found a receipt for condoms in the car, and fired by the Miami Dolphins, but according to TMZ, his reality show Ev & Ocho has been cancelled by VH1! Clearly, we are not surprised.
It sounds like Basketballs Wives star Evelyn Lozada got lucky. Not only did she survive a gruesome head butt from her ever so loving husband, Chad Ochocinco Johnson, that landed her in the hospital, but it all happened before he officially joined the ranks of “loser status” that comes from losing both of your jobs in just a matter of hours. Chances are Chad Ochocinco Johnson will not play football again, and if he does it will not be this year. No one wants a wife beater on their team. His television career seems to have come to a screeching halt as well as just hours after the Miami Dolphins announced that Ochocinco was fired, VH1 announced that his new reality show is being cancelled, before it even begins.
This of course also helps Evelyn’s career. She is now the victim and will be able to cash in on that with some network, probably VH1, as she joins another show, or maybe reappears on Basketball Wives. We also suspect that she will seek a quick annulment and will be able to deny that she ever made the big mistake of jumping into marriage with Ochocinco, whom everyone knows is a bad boy.
As we said, we are not surprised the show was cancelled. Even VH1 does not want the stigma of supporting a wife beater, no matter how high it would make their ratings. Is there anyone who can say that they ARE surprised?
