This story is one of those dog bones one just can’t turn loose. One thing I appreciate about what I’ve been reading online about this incident, is that a lot of people are expressing my EXACT sentiments from this post. The fact that people aren’t just Super quick to jump on Evelyn’s bandwagon because it’s CLEAR her credibility, when it comes to violence is shaky because of her actions from “Basketball Wives” is mildly re-assuring.
I appreciate the agreement that much more when my thoughts are matched by a wise person on a national television program. Enter ESPN’s First Take great debaters Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith. Now, Skip Bayless was more upset with how Miami cut Johnson and I’m inclined to agree. Watching him be cut last night on “Hard Knocks” was so painful. I literally felt like I was witnessing someone’s last plea before being executed.
Stephen A. however points stated exactly what needed to be said regarding “who [Johnson] married.” His way of articulating it was a lot more professional and less accusatory than my “That woman is a LIAR” tone, BUT we stated the same facts none the less.
I love to highlight when GREAT minds think alike. Watch the clip below…
I am the biggest NON-Hater in the world. I never actually wish to see bad done to anyone. Even if I forcast something unfavorable, I never really want it to come to pass.
I say that to say this, I remember about maybe 3 months ago, saying that somebody(within his inner circle) should STOP Chad Ochocinco Johnson from marrying Evelyn Lozada (Of “Basketball Wives” fame) because she will, and I quote: “Be the detriment and downfall to his brand/career.” I’ll be a monkey’s uncle IF this statement isn’t coming to pass now! I am actually saddened to see that I was right. Click the link below…
This isn’t just an “I KNEW It!” situation. I’m sure anyone that as taken in 1 blinks worth of Evelyn on “Basketball Wives” knows she’s nothing but trouble. She’s a beautiful woman, which further upsets me because she’s too pretty to be so ridiculously foul-mouthed and uncouth, BUT if one had seen any of her “BBW” antics they would not be remotely surprised by this latest news story. I just feel bad for Chad Johnson because he’s clearly been bamboozled.
This is a modern-day, Shakespearean style tragedy if I’ve ever seen one.
I think we need to lift them both up in prayer because in all honestly I don’t believe a word that comes out of Evelyn’s mouth. This whole thing looks like a plot(on her end) to get out of this marriage and take him for everything he’s worth. I REFUSE to believe that this “condom receipt” is her first run-in or suspicion that he might be cheating on her. I’m sure she had clues BEFORE she married him, so to go along with it only to act up their first month of marriage just smells suspect to me.
Now, I can’t stress enough, If it is proven that he physically assaulted her intentionally to shut her up about the cheating allegations, then of course, throw the bum in jail. But as it stands now, a clear cut he-said-she-said situation, I’m not buying her story. I don’t trust her any farther than I can throw my car. If a woman is “Gangsta” enough to climb across a table at an event to try to fight a woman because that woman was calling ANOTHER woman a name; that same “G” could most certainly make up a fairytale about her new husband headbutting her because he was mad at some cheating accusations (that he’s heard before).
I actually remember an episode on “BBW” where they had a discussion about cheating, and while she was mad she told him in so many words that she knows what it is dating an athlete and that she just wanted him to be honest. (TMZ found the clip and mention i’m referring too). She wasn’t acting a fool and he was calm, cool and collected in the situation. So, for that to transform into him assaulting her when the same topic is broached again, doesn’t add up. She has NO CREDIBILITY to me. It’s a shame, because at the mention of a domestic dispute allegation we women are all supposed to be on the same side…BUT women lie too. I’ve personally witnessed a man’s life be ruined because some girl lied on him. It happens more than you think, so I’m not about to rush to judgement in her defense when she could be making the whole thing up!
I sincerely pray they both get help and in the name of Jesus I hope he got a prenuptial agreement. I think as the days go by we’ll see how this whole thing unfolds…
All I know NOW is Somebody’s lying! This song speaks to that.
DAVIE, Fla. -Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson, formerly known as Ochocinco, was arrested Saturday after Davie police said he head-butted his wife of less than two months.
Davie police told Local 10 the two were on their way home from dinner when his wife found a receipt for a box of condoms in the car. A fight ensued and escalated when they got to their Davie home. Once in the driveway, Evelyn Lozada said Johnson head-butted her. Johnson told police she leaned forward and they hit heads accidentally, police said.
Johnson was arrested for domestic violence- simple battery. He was in Davie police custody Saturday night but was expected to be transferred to the Broward County Jail before midnight.
Johnson cannot be granted bond until he appears before a judge, which means he will most likely spend the night in jail, Davie police said.
Johnson married Lozada, a cast member on the VH1 reality TV series, “Basketball Wives” on July 4.
I just have the following thoughts on this incident.
1) Now, everybody can stop talking about Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries because this only lasted a week longer than 1 month so approximately 37 days(give or take).
2) Jennifer Williams WAS RIGHT. After all, the production and fighting last season on “Basketball Wives” about how she didn’t support Ev and didn’t really trust Ochocinco. She turned out to be right. I’m going to say it because i’m sure nobody else will…Ev Owes Jenn a REAL apology.
3) Why are they beefing already? So, does this mean the Ev & Ocho show really won’t be airing now? I really didn’t want to see it because they are ALWAYS in front of somebody’s reality camera I actually wanted them to try their hand at living a normal(not in front of TV cameras) life.
4) Am I wrong for wondering if HBO’s “Hard Knock” cameras were around to catch any of this drama? IDK why but I feel like this is the type of headline that comes out while a show is in production. Man, I JUST watched the premiere of “Hard Knocks” and was interested to see his antics this season(on the field and during training camp that is).
5) On a serious note: While, I can’t say this argument shocks me because that’s all Ev did on Basketball Wives was start loud boisterous arguments. I do, however, hope she is okay, i’d imagine his head is a hard as a boulder. He just looks like a rock-head, literally. I’m not an Evelyn fan, but I wouldn’t wish assault on anybody. Especially not from your new husband.
I’m probably in the minority but I was actually rooting for them to make it. Call me an optimist, I want anyone who gets married to actually last forever. and who knows SHE MAY NOT leave him…although she’d be a damn fool, I don’t care how much money you make. Headbutt me once… Shame on me for shooting your black *bleep* in the face. #OkayImDone Hold My Mule
Not trying to be funny, but this song seems so relevant.
