Report: Ochocinco, Lozada Getting VH1 Reality Show, ‘Ocho & Ev’
BOSTON (CBS) — Chad Ochocinco couldn’t catch many passes this past season with the Patriots, but if football is no longer his thing, it looks like he’ll always have reality television to fall back on.
The receiver will be the star of a new VH1 reality show along with fiancee Evelyn Lozada called Ocho & Ev, according to TerezOwens.com.
The source is appropriate, considering Ochocinco’s previous reality show experience was alongside Terrell Owens on The Ultimate Catch, where Ochocinco starred in a Bachelor-esque competition, and later a talk show called The T.Ocho Show. Ochocinco also appeared on Dancing With The Stars, when he made it to the final four of the dancing competition.
Lozada, 36, is no stranger to reality TV, as she gained her fame on Basketball Wives as the ex-wife of Antoine Walker.
“Filming starts this spring and will document Evelyn and Chad’s upcoming wedding and new life together,” the report said.
Ochocinco, 34, is under contract for next season with the Patriots, though the team reportedly has asked him to restructure his contract, leaving his future with the team still up in the air.
