There seems to be no end in sight for the attention whoring tactics employed by living caricature Chad “OchoCinco” Johnson. We had nothing against ‘Dancing With The Stars’ until the Bengals standout decided to introduce his brand of buffoonery to the program, and this time he wants to do it wearing a see through costume. Pop the hood for details.
“He wants to do a full-on see-through outfit,” says Cheryl Burke, the football star’s DWTS partner. “He’d have to wear a cup, at least—a rhinestone one.”
“I may want that to hang out, too,” Ochocinco says.
We certainly wouldn’t put it past him to go as risqué as censors will let him.
Burke laughs, “He’s a character. You never know what you’re going to get. It’s like going to get ice cream. There are so many flavors.”
In one of the rare moments of seriousness during our chat, Ochocinco says he has a newfound respect for ballroom dancing. “I thought it would be easy,” he admits. “Watching it on TV, I thought, How hard could it be?” But now I know the time and the work it takes to perfect this craft is extremely hard.”
His Cincinnati Bengals teammates are supporting him, as is his coach. “His thing is how much this will help me on the field,” Ochocinco explains. “I’m going to be a lot more limber and, of course, I’ll be a lot stronger.”
And he’ll probably be getting into more trouble once he returns to the field. “I’m thinking of dancing with the refs,” he says. “I already have it planned. As soon as he raises his hand I’m going to get right in frame with him and then just start dancing with him.”
This guy is a CLOWN and we are not at all entertained. He’s exploited the myth of the mandingo enough. NOBODY wants to see your johnson — Johnson! And while we can’t argue with his ability as an athlete, it’s a damn shame when your field strategy has more to do with actin’ a damn fool than scoring touchdowns.
