“Basketball Wives” Reunion Show Cancelled

If you were looking forward to the upcoming Basketball Wives reunion show, you may be disappointed. The special episode wrapping up season five has been cancelled because Evelyn Lozada decided not to participate.

Lozada pulled out of the scheduled taping earlier this month.  Allegedly, she’s fed up with discussing her breakup with ex-hubby Chad Johnson, which was supposed to be the hot topic of the reunion show. As a result of Lozada bailing, producers were forced to cancel the taping, and they have no plans to reschedule.

Another huge problem is that the other Wives (specifically Tami, Tasha, and Suzie) have nothing juicy to talk about. A source said the producers felt, without Lozada, the other cast members didn’t have enough material for the hour-long episode.

Sounds like if all the season’s wrap-up has is the tabloid split-up of Ev and Chad to keep things interesting, the handwriting is on the wall: BBW has run its course.

Evelyn Lozada Might Still Be Married if Abuse Was Private

Basketball Wives Star Evelyn Lozada had the good sense to immediately end her marriage to Chad Johnson when she became a victim of a violent head-butting. But she admits she came dangerously close to staying in the union.

Evelyn told Access Hollywood, “I had physical scars. Obviously, I had to go to the hospital. I’m going to admit if there wasn’t, I probably would have went right back in that house and would have brushed it under the rug…” she says. “I wouldn’t have wanted the world to know.”

Now, Lozada will have to relive some of the most painful moments of her relationship with Johnson via season 5 of her reality show, Basketball Wives. Fans of the show will get an insiders view into the end of Evelyn’s short-lived marriage. And she thinks healing publicly is a positive thing

“I consider it such a huge blessing. Even though it was a very traumatic time for me…” Lozada says about her ex-husband whom she hasn’t had contact with since January.

“I’m moving on with my life. He’s moving on with his life,” she added. “I’m glad things are where they’re at.”

Go on girl!

Chad Johnson Can’t Afford Child Support and Will Be Released From Jail Today

Chad Johnson’s woes continue to pile on. Now he’s revealed that his spending is now outpacing his income. Whether that’s an actual problem is debatable. But let’s see where the expenses lie….

According to TMZ, Johnson has been challenging the mothers of his children in an effort to lower his child support payments since he’s not making the income he did when he was in the NFL. Back in April, Johnson filed court documents claiming that he only makes roughly$3,000 per month. But currently, he has to pay $16,525 a month in child support.

Moreover, Johnson’s other expenses include $9,063.24 in mortgage payments, $2,500 for food, $2,650 on car expenses, $3,500 on clothing, $250 for grooming, $5,000 on entertainment, $1,000 for pet expenses and various other expenses which, combined, total $31,154.76.

Now, does this mean the courts (or the public) should take pity on him or have pity for him? Mind you, Chad reportedly owns two houses, two cars, and a few bank accounts, which hold assets of up to $4,720,672.57. We’ll see what the courts decide!

In other news, after the butt slapped heard around the world and receiving jail time — Chad will be released today, according to TMZ.  He only served one-week behind bars.

Evelyn Lozada Takes Michigan Teen to Prom

Once word gets out about the latest exploits of Evelyn Lozada, popular opinion should agree that when it comes to personality, heart and the “aww factor” the Basketball Wives star is a million miles ahead of  her ex-hubby Chad Johnson.

A few months ago, Lozada received a note from a high school senior, named Anthony from Bloomfield Michigan via Twitter. The teenager wanted the VH1 star to be his date for his prom. Lozada then made the star-struck youth’s ultimate dream come true; not only did she say yes to his request, but also provided lots of A-list extras for the evening. In addition to paying for her own airline ticket from Los Angeles, Lozada provided transportation for she and Anthony in a tricked out Denali, and then she splurged on a very fancy dinner for the both of them. Anthony reciprocated by buying Evelyn a corsage.

Lozada thought it would be a fun experience to attend the prom with Anthony, because she missed her own back in the day due to being pregnant. But the reality star more than made up for lost time, it was reported that Evelyn never left the dance floor all night.

Say it all together now, “Aww…”

Evelyn Lozada Says She Doesn’t Talk to Ex-Hubby Chad Johnson

If you thought or heard that Evelyn Lozada has kept in contact with her ex-husband Chad Johnson, think again. She hasn’t, and she let’s us know no words have been exchanged between them

After arriving to LAX, she was asked by reporters from TMZ if she still speaks to the ex-football player, to which she said: “Nope, we don’t talk… at all.” If you recall, Evelyn dropped her ex-hubby quick-fast after he assaulted her, head-butting her not long after the two were married last year. While Ms. Lozada has spent the last year getting her life together, even appearing on the debut of the life coaching show Iyanla, Fix My Life, Chad has been hanging with the homeless and the law.

In April, he treated a homeless man named Porkchop to drinks, new clothes and a weekend of club-hopping. And this week, Chad was arrested for violating probation he received for the Lozada assault.

But one positive aspect of their relationship  Lozada does maintain… She wishes Chad nothing but the best. The best of what? She never says.

Chad Johnson Treats Homeless Man to Drinks, New Clothes and Helluva Weekend

Chad Johnson may not have much luck at marriage or the NFL. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a good heart. Just ask the homeless man Johnson treated to 48 hours of liquor, a new wardrobe and pure baller merriment.

The out-of-work NFL player devoted a weekend to giving a homeless man named Robert a.k.a “Pork Chop” the time of his life, all while documenting their adventures on Twitter. Johnson tweeted that Pork Chop asked him for a beer but he did more than that: he bought him a case of beer (yeah, he may be contributing to someone’s problem with alcohol, but hey…). Together the two drank some more, went shopping at Urban Outfitters and ended the night at a club called Dream.

He also took his homeless buddy salsa dancing and gave him a nice watch. But Johnson didn’t do it all without keeping an end game in mind for Pork Chop. “I’m using all the resources available,” he informed his Twitter followers, “to help the best way I can.” What happened to his weekend friend after their fun-filled weekend? No word. But at least the former Ochocinco gave someone less fortunate the time of his life.

Is Chad Johnson Finally Over Evelyn Lozada?

Apparently Chad Johnson has abandoned all plans to reunite with ex-wife Evelyn Lozada. When TMZ recently asked the former NFL star if he still talked to his former wifey, Johnson seemed to suffer with a touch of amnesia.

“Who? … Who?” Johnson inquired.

Most reality TV followers and tabloid news fans remember the very short-lived train wreck that was Mr. & Mrs. Ochocinco. Their brief union culminated in Chad being convicted for head-butting Evelyn. Maybe his memory is sketchy because he wasn’t on the receiving end of the blow?

In other news, Johnson said he has every intention of getting back into the NFL. The former wide receiver says he even has a plan “B” lined up just in case all doesn’t go as planned.

Good luck with that Chad, you’ll definitely need it.

Chad Johnson Enlists FBI in Finding Out Who Leaked Sex Tape

Chad Johnson, after admitting that he did appear in a leaked sex tape, is trying to find the culprit who leaked the steamy footage. So he’s enlisting the help of the FBI to catch the bandit.

Earlier this week news broke of the scandalous tape showing the former NFL (and reality TV) star in a Florida hotel room doing the do with a tattoo-covered female. Even though Johnson, uh, came clean about his starring role in the sexy tape, which he says was shot more than three years ago, he says he wasn’t the one who put the footage on the Web.

To get to the bottom of the matter, he reached out to the FBI to see if they can hunt down the guilty party. Reportedly, he’s still waiting for a response. But if you ask a responsible person, they would say the guilty party is Chad… for taping such a private act and thinking it would stay, well, private if it’s on tape. When will folks learn to stop for putting their business on camera.

Chad Johnson Comes Clean About Infidelity, Domestic Abuse

After a harrowing year, Chad Johnson is trying to reset the scoreboard and get his life, and career, back on track. In a candid interview with ESPN’s First Take, Johnson finally opened up about his rocky marriage and public divorce from Basketball WivesEvelyn Lozada, and his uncertain future in football.

“I’ve accepted responsibility for my actions,” he began. “Especially with [Evelyn] by apologizing to my family, my friends, [and] the players I’ve let down, the Dolphins organization. I know I’m in the wrong. Perception on the outside, everybody sees this one way.”

Ocho didn’t give too many details about the head-butting incident which landed him in both jail and divorce court, but did admit, “there was a domestic dispute, for one, which was all my fault, because I’m living life the way it shouldn’t be lived. That’s why I lost everything I did.”

On his life since the incident, Ocho says, “Of course I’m getting the necessary help. I’ve been going to my domestic violence classes. I’m still training. That’s about all I can do. Just living life. Just learning from my mistakes.”

Interestingly, Johnson didn’t rule out the possibility of reuniting with Lozada, telling his interviewers, “I’ve talked to both of you on the phone numerous times to let you know why I’m fighting for my wife the way I am.”

Could a reconciliation really be in the cards?

Has Ev & Ocho gone from romantic comedy, to horror show, to flat-out drama? Months after their ugly divorce, following an equally ugly incident of domestic violence, Evelyn Lozada can’t seem to shake the ghost of Chad Johnson’s past. A female groupie who has been taking pictures with Ocho lately has reportedly been tweeting Lozada, and the Basketball Wives star finally had enough.

Ev lashed out at the young lady via Twitter yesterday: “Let’s make @jessie8886 famous since she wants to Tweet me all day! You smashed the homie now what?!”

Evelyn has made a big show of moving on with her life, including stopping by Iyanla Vanzant’s OWN show Fix My Life, but it seems her ex still has a way of crawling under her skin. Ev, take it from us: the groupies will always be creepin’. Keep your head up and focus on getting that contract for Season 5 of BBW!
