Ev And Ocho Show
August 14, 2012 by staff
Ev And Ocho Show, For Chad Johnson, a weekend confrontation with his wife has led to repercussions beyond a misdemeanor charge and NFL unemployment. VH1 pulled from its schedule the reality series “Ev and Ocho,” starring newlyweds Johnson — formerly known as Chad Ochocinco — and Evelyn Lozada. The network announced the move Monday, citing “the seriousness of the allegations” against Johnson, and said it had no plans to air the show.
The Dolphins terminated Johnson’s contract Sunday night, about 24 hours after he was arrested in a domestic battery case involving Lozada, who is on the reality TV show “Basketball Wives.” ”Ev and Ocho” was conceived as a spinoff and had been slated to debut Sept. 3.
Davie police released a tape of the 911 call made by a neighbor for Lozada, who sat bleeding from the head following the domestic incident. During the call, he’s heard telling the reality star to wipe the blood from an open wound on her head.
Lozada can be heard in the background saying Johnson headbutted her. The neighbor tells the dispatcher the woman will likely need stitches.
The Dolphins’ decision to release Johnson left coach Joe Philbin with a dearth of experience at receiver and a potential backlash in the locker room. Philbin decided Johnson’s knack for outlandish antics were a detriment that outweighed potential contributions from the six-time Pro Bowl receiver.
“It wasn’t about one specific thing. It just wasn’t going to work,” Philbin said. “It didn’t feel like to me that this fit was going to be right for us as an organization, or for Chad. It was time to move on. It wasn’t done to send a message. It was done because it just didn’t feel right.”
