Chad Ochocinco Pisses off VH1, Fans
The blogosphere has been buzzing for weeks now about football-player-turned-reality-tv-star Chad Ochocinco and his rumored relationship with Basketball Wives vixen Evelyn Lozada.
Ochocinco is the starring bachelor of the VH1 reality dating show Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch. Like most other shows of its kind, women compete for Ochocinco's affection in a series of bizzare challenges and one-on-one dates.
However, Ochocinco's recently publicized fling with Lozada has sparked fan curiosity and network discontent. According to the latest reports from TMZ, VH1 is allegedly unhappy that Ochocinco spoiled the ending of the show by revealing that he did not find love with any of the girls on the show.
Evelyn Lozada, Ochocinco's new flame, is also a VH1 reality star, and has received mixed reactions from viewers in regards to her behavior on Basketball Wives. Lozada is the ex-girlfriend of former NBA star Antoine Walker. She ended their nearly ten-year relationship after Walker was charged with three felony counts of fraudulent check writing. Several blogs are reporting that Ochocinco might be Lozada's love interest in the new season of Basketball Wives, but question Lozado's motivations for pursuing a relationship with the football star.
And as if the blogosphere gossip isn't enough, the two have also taken their romance to Twitter, where they mention the relationship openly.
Fortunately for VH1, the Ochocinco/Lozada romance may improve ratings as curious fans await the dramatic season finale of The Ultimate Catch. Did Ochocinco pick a girl? If so, what happened to their relationship? Stay tuned for a follow-up article after the finale and reunion episode.
