Chad Ochocinco is dating Basketball Wives’ Evelyn Lozada; VH1 is pissed

Chad Ochocinco currently has an excruciating dating elimination show airing called The Ultimate Catch but, spoiler alert, he’s not currently dating any of the women on the show. Instead he’s moved up the VH1 reality show ranks from unconsumable garbage to guilty pleasure by romancing Evelyn Lozada from Basketball Wives. Of course, VH1 producers are a little miffed that his relationship status has leaked since his show is still airing (and the audience may go from the hundreds to the tens!). In fact, inside sources say he doesn’t pick anyone at the end, even for the sake of the show.

Lozada has been dating Ocho for a few months, and they reportedly tweet each other incessantly. Basketball Wives is currently filming it’s second season, and Ocho will be prominently featured as Lozada’s love interest. It’s a fun, juicy show full of cat fights and delicious drama. Definitely a step up from the tinny taste of the canned Ochicinco.

Lozada was once engaged to Antoine Walker, and was involved in a nude picture scandal when the first season of Basketball Wives aired this spring.
