As Most of us know this Weekend there was Domestic Drama between Basketball Wives villette Evelyn Lozada and her husband Chad Johnson-known to most people as Chad Ochocinco, I know-a mess, right. And of course he was a wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins before this weekends unfortunate events.
Chad has made awful comments about dating women with "good hair and light skin" on several occasions. So this sort of abuse of women did not surprise me one bit. He does not see women as his equal he sees us as things, so it makes sense that he would not have a problem head-butting his chick. And this is not the first time that he smacked Evelyn-believe that!
“Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series ‘Ev and Ocho’ from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it,” the network told TMZ.
I find it amazing that a television station, VH1, that makes its money off of people fighting and acting out on camera would cancel a reality show of people who fight OFF CAMERA. I suppose they were trying to avoid being financially responsible when it got bigger than a head but.
On Saturday, Johnson was arrested after allegedly headbutting Lozada during an intense argument, leaving a 3-inch cut on her forehead. Lozada claims the altercation occurred after she confronted Johnson about a receipt for a box of condoms.
Im thinking four things:
- She knew that he was a cheater when they met....Im sure its coded into his DNA.
- She has been whooping a** on TV, why not expect it back?
- Really a 3 inch cut??....This guy is a JERK!
- I hope that domestic violence is brought more to the forefront because of this incident.
Johnson was arrested and charged with simple domestic battery, but was released early Sunday morning on $2,500 bond. Shortly after, the Miami Dolphins dismissed the 34-year-old NFL star from the team. They did not want the negative press, I am sure.
The show, which was set to air Sept. 3, followed the couple’s relationship from dating to their marraige this past 4th of July.
I am not going to pretend that I dont view RealityTV...its my guilty pleasure!!...but I actually do not like Basketball Wives or Evelyn...like I dont watch the franchise at all...say I am talking out of both sides of my mouth if you want, but I REALLY do not like the way that BBW portrays women of color
(unlike RHOA, Love and Hip Hop).
But if this incident can bring some more light to domestic violence-it would be worth all of these disgusting degenerative shows
(just BBW, the others are okay).
Lets talk about Domestic Violence...not the Television Show that got cancelled!!
