Yeah, We Said It: What Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada Are Doing Right

evelyn lozada chad ochocinco

The soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Ochocinco are using their combined star power to cash more checks — you can’t knock their hustle.

It’s easy to hate on Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco. They’re both easy on the eyes. He’s got talent on the field. She’s played the field…and always scores. Most important, they lead a life many dream of. You know, days filled hitting the mall — sans the average man’s penny pinching — and nights filled with red carpet appearances. They jet set. They shop and coordinate purchases. They’re even bold enough to toss it in our faces. The thing is, they’re doing everything right.

Ochocinco and Lozada have obviously been doing more than getting it in during their trysts: They’ve done some calculated planning. They understand that star power, and the resulting cash flow, isn’t simply based on talent. It’s also based on the ability to have the masses buy into your brand. It’s about achieving the delicate balance between envy and adoration. It’s about giving the people enough to want more, but not enough to turn their stomachs. Watching this urban dynamic duo pull off the ultimate hustle proves the spoils of Hollywood aren’t simple for the blonde haired, the blue-eyed or the trust fund babies. We all have a chance.

The couple’s climb to success may have seemed comical at times — think matching Gucci kicks — but it worked. We see OchoLo at the footballer’s favorite eatery and we know they’re dating. The buzz starts. We catch a glimpse of them walking in the city. Now we know they’re likely a couple. We watch them make their official debut on the red carpet, garbed in Nordstrom’s finest ready-to-wear items and we’re hooked. Are they having sex? Are they getting married? How many other women did the hot-tempered Lozada beat back for this coup? But it doesn’t end there. The couple strategically releases photos of their new life together and announces their plans to wed.

Logically, we know two dynamos are better than one and we’re willing to pay to see what happens next — and they’re going to charge. Not us, per se, but VH1 and any other long moneyed brand who understands the power Lozada’s wanton, Nuyorican-accented mean girl tirades holds on the masses. Or that women may be giving her “the side eye” but taking notes on her wardrobe. The same goes for bald baller. While his on field antics made him a problem child, the label holds little weight with female viewers vicariously living their “date a pro-athlete” fantasy through the boob tube and blogs.

In the end, few believe that this pair will make it down the aisle. Still, they deserve major kudos for dissecting the modern day formula of reality show based stardom and going for the W. Most important, it’s working. Lozada’s new contract with VH1 means that she’ll earn more money in a month than most will in year. There’s little doubt that more projects — think Living with Ochocinco — are in the works. All that moolah and fame doesn’t make donning matching outfits look so high school after all, huh?

    LET’S SEE IF IT ENDS RIGHT.

    Funny thing is she doesn’t really like him she likes the lifestyle. True to how a gold digger is she will wake up 10 years later (Antoine) and realize she has wasted her time all over again. Big dummy

    • Tyrone

      You must not know are have alot of experience with women. Most women , IN SOME RESPECT , date a man for what he has to offer and what she has to gain.

  • fred blitnikoff

    good move because Chads football career is basically over.
    Chad . . where is that hall of fame jacket u disrespected by wearing something u haven’t earned on the sideline ? Maybe Terrell Owens will let u touch a REAL HALL OF FAME jacket when he gets VOTED in.

    DO NOT LET YOURSELVES BE FOOLED BY THIS RUBBISH ARTICLE.THERE IS NOTHING IN CHAD OR EVELYN THAT IS RESPECTABLE OR RESPONSIBLE THIS UNION IS BASED ON MONEY AND PUBLICITY.THE FOUNDATION OF ANY UNION IS LOVE AND RESPECT THESE TWO ARE POORLY EDUCATED, MATERIALISTIC HOOD RATS.
    WHERE ARE THE COUPLES THAT HAVE SOLID UNIONS, SUPPORT CHARITIES AND ARE GOD FEARING.IT IS VERY SAD THE MESSAGE YOU KEEP TRYING TO POLLUTE PEOPLES MINDS WITH.

    • Babyl98

      In Theory Been you’re right but the reality is that the life she and chad lead is envied by many people. The culture today values wealth and equates that to happiness they might be totally happy even many will say they are vulgar money hungry and vainglorious! But all this is is a reflection of our society today they are a mirror of what people want to see

  • Tcity

    Chad has too many kids with too many women I do not see Evelyn going for that but if she does it only for the come up because she could have found a man like this in the Bronx minus the money and perks.I do not care how much money he has he is very sloppy.

  • Tyrone

    I cant blame Chad for wanting to marry Evelyn. She is light skinned , long hair , very built with a curvateous body and she is latina.

    Although Chad is a rich famous athlete he is dark and very simian looking. He has been told his entire life by black women that he was ugly. He didnt have the opportunity to be with beautiful latina women until he was rich and famous. This is why he has publically rejected black women through his words and actions. He is experiencing self hatred.This explains his intentional lack of involvement with black women.

    I cannot blame him. Most black women are fat , out of shape and simian looking.This is why rich and famous black men in increasing numbers are dating latina or white women. Black women dont stand a chance. If they were smart they would date nonblack men. However , most nonblack men are not interested in black women.

    • Just Sayin...

      And that’s where you’re wrong Tyrone…there are actually many of us Black women who like our men Black like our coffee – you can sit down now too!!

    • Chill

      Its quite obvious that your purpose here is to degrade black women. It only shows how much space we take up in your small little mind and speaks to the fact that you have either been hurt by one of us, or just plain jealous or us. Poor thing, stop making yourself look like an internet loser with nothing else to do.

    • eliteliberal

      nothing wrong with black women. Some rich black men marry those women because they’re color struck and have low self esteem. Black women are a novelty in Europe. White and latina men like black women, but black women are not attracted to them. Black women need to open their minds and stop being loyal to black men who reject them. Ocho can wipe the black off his skin, he just acting like a clown.

    • Tyrone

      @eliteliberal ,well said and I partially agree with you. Black women definitely need to start dating non-blackmen.

    • edwinknowsbest

      why do you insist on being so insulting to black women? I could reel out names of black women that would make your jaw drop……and being stick thin and pale doesn’t make you beautiful…..being physically beautiful doesn’t even complete beauty. Being a nice person , not looking a medieval time instrument, completes that…. I don’t know what you went through with a black woman, but with your attitude, you’d probably have gone through that with anyone you were with….

    • Easy on the Eyes

      Tyrone whatever it is that u are smoking or sniffing take it back and get your money back and tell them that the shyt is just too stong for u and it has fried your brain, turned u into self hating your self and making u delusion!!! IN OTHER WAYS TYRONE PLEASE SAY NO TO DRUGS!!! AND GET MENTAL HELP QUICK!!! u are on the merge of a NERVOUS BREAKDOWN!!!

  • msmollygohard

    And forget yall for DELETING MY COMMENTS

  • http://www.aol.com Ben

    Tyrone surely you must have cable in your mothers basement.If you do not as was explained to you before.Chad has dated black women he has three children by a black woman, black women have never told Chad he is ugly.You are making this up to feel better about yourself.
    PLEASE REPEAT AFTER ME TYRONE JUST BECAUSE YOU CANNOT GET ANY WOMAN ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD TO DATE YOU-IT IS NOT THE FAULT OF THE BLACK WOMAN.
    LASTLY MOST NON BLACK WOMEN ARE NOT INTERESTED IN BLACK MEN-WHITE, ASIAN AND LATINO WOMEN CRAVE WHITE MEN AND DATE THEM MORE THAN THEY WOULD EVER TOUCH A BLACK MAN.

    • Tyrone

      Ben , I am aware that Chad has many children by many BLACK women. However , that does not devalue my point.Chad was involved with these black women before he was rich and famous. As previously stated he did not have the opportunity to be with certain women until he became rich and famous.Now since he has the option to be with who he wants to , he is choosing to be with non black women.Which is something alot of rich and famous black men do. They date their kind until their money and fame allows them to have other nonblack women.

    • Tyrone

      Ben , one more thing. You , unlike most individuals on this blog , are too intelligent , expressive and persuasive to resort to personal attacks and name calling to prove your point. With you it is not necessary and only weakens your argument.

  • Dcgal

    Total bullshyt article.

  • ms cleo

    @tyrone
    I see a d*ck in your mouth in the very near future !

    • Tyrone

      That was a very well thought out intelligent cerebral response.

  • Just Sayin...

    @Tyrone – “Beauty is as beauty does – she’s ugly!!”

    • Tyrone

      All men and the vast majority of objective fair minded unbiased women would conclude this woman is attractive. However , physical attractiveness to a woman is multi-dimensional.(she takes things other than physical attributes into consideration when opining whether someone is physically attractive). Most black women take Evelyns terrible personality into account when judging how she looks. Thus , an undeniably attractive woman becomes ugly.

      Men on the other hand are one dimensional when it comes to looks. They only consider the visual nothing else. That is why you will never hear a man say Evelyn is ugly or unattractive.

  • brown suga

    Again….what does he see in this chic??? He & all others KNOWS sge’s been AROUND…..SMDH

  • brown suga

    OH Yeah…like I’ve always said “HOES have ALL men/fun”…this chic is a NBA?NFL mattress….

  • Janay

    They’re doing everything right? Bwahahahaha! Wow could an article be so staged? Who did they have to pay for this? I’m out….

  • antoine walker

    Chad . . . what my junk taste like ?

    • Tyrone

      You can ask every man that about the woman he is with.

      Damn near every grown woman has been with at least more than one man. This is particularly true of black women who are more promiscuous than other women.Like Evelyn , the average black woman has had at least 15-20 sexual partners in her lifetime. The difference is that Evelyns sexual partners are rich and famous. Thus , the hate.

    • Tweet

      lol, Antoine go get your old looking loose goose!

  • dropped the world on my head

    man the trolls are in full effect today. Its lame when people post under multiple names, stirr trouble, and respond to themselves. Only this site allows such foolishness.

    • whodat

      I wasn’t gonna get in this mess til I read your post. After your post was the time for the REAL REAL TALK comment. Tyrone is funny sitting around answering every post. Dang! Go away already!

  • http://www.aol.com Ben

    TYRONE WORK ON YOUR LOW SELF ESTEEM AND TRY AND GET SOME PRIDE.YOU ARE A WEAK MAN WHO IS OBSESSED WITH PUTTING DOWN THE SISTERS.WHAT A SHAME THAT YOU CANNOT MAN UP AND BE SO HATEFUL AGAINST RACISTS OR CRIMINALS.
    CHADS YOUNGEST CHILD IS 5 YEARS OLD AND HE WAS WITH HER BLACK MOTHER WHEN HE HAD MONEY SO YOU ARE BOTH A LIAR AND A FRAUD.
    OUR MOST BEAUTIFUL EDUCATED SISTERS ARE SUPPORTING OUR MOST POWERFUL MEN AND I THANK-GOD FOR IT.BLACK WOMEN WILL ALWAYS HAVE OUR BACK AND POOR CHAD WILL END UP ANOTHER OJ SIMPSON, TOGER WOODS, STEVE MCNAIR, SHAUN GAYLE. MICHAEL STRAHAN AND TIKI BARBER JUST CONFUSED AND LEADING A LIFE OF NO SUBSTANCE JUST WITH NOTHING BUT MATERIALISTIC,GOLD DIGGERS.

    • Tyrone

      Oh and Ben , the more I read your comments the more I am regretting my compliment of your intellect. To expressly state or imply that a black man dating a white woman will end up like O J is unreasonable , unfounded and simply based in hate. You are bigger than this.

      One more thing , again please stop the name calling. Dont resort to such tactics which are often used by those who cannot refute or counter a point( most people on this blog).Ben rely exclusively on brain power.I know it may be difficult but concentrate by repeatedly telling yourself to stick to the issue , stick to the issue , stick to the issue.

  • StuckInDaMatrix

    I see you b*o*s*s*i*p! they paid you for this story and you guys have your employees post under different name to stir arguments to get people to debate and argue. That means more comments and revenue for you! Shame you have to resort to vileness and the lowest common denominator to stay afloat.
