You’ve heard Shaunie’s thoughts on the wedding, now hear it straight from the horses mouth
Not even a natural disaster was going to stop Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada from tying the knot with NFL player Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson, and RadarOnline.com has exclusive details on their 4th of July nuptials and their first month of marriage.
Many couples claim the earth moved on their wedding night, but for Evelyn and Chad, it was the ground that shifted 30 minutes before she walked down the aisle.
“There was an earthquake on our wedding day!” Lozada told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview. “We were in the Caribbean on the island St. Maartin, I didn’t even think they had earthquakes there.”
Luckily the rumblings below the surface didn’t unsettle the event at the Le Chateau des Palmiers beachfront, and while she is waiting for their VH1 special Ev and Ocho to air before saying too much about the big day, the bride gushed about her Ines Di Santo wedding dress, “it had a hint of blue to match Chad because he had a blue suit on,” and her costars Shaunie O’Neal and Suzie Ketcham who flew to the tropical island to see her say “I do.”
“I can’t say if we had any wild animals there, that was a huge bone of contention and you’ll have to wait and see it on the show,” Evelyn teased.
Now that they are married, the natural question is…when will they be about that baby-making life??
“Chad asks me every other day if I want to have children but I just don’t know, I have a 19-year-old daughter (Shaniece) who is at college,” Evelyn told Radar.
“I’ve done the kids and motherhood thing and am enjoying concentrating on my career and the reality show. There are so many doors opening up to me right now.”
The reality-TV bride, banger, and brawler also spoke on hubby Chad’s release from the New England Patriots and subsequent signing to the Miami Dolphins.
Whatever they are called, the couple are delighted that the NFL wide receiver was signed by the Miami Dolphins after being cut by the New England Patriots earlier this year.
“We’re so excited that Chad was traded to Miami. We live here in the off-season and he grew up in Florida so it’s perfect.”
The move ups the reality TV opportunities for both Chad and Evelyn, as HBO’s Hard Knocks show, which focuses on a different NFL team’s drama during training camp each year and picked the Dolphins to be the stars of the show for 2012.
“We’ll definitely be featured in Hard Knocks, it’s very different to Basketball Wives but still lots of fun, its just all related to football,” said Evelyn, who explained that even though she hasn’t yet signed a new contract with the VH1 show that made her famous, she is sure she’ll be back.
Ev and Ocho airs on VH1 on September 3.
Sounds like Evelyn is living in marital bliss, hopefully Chad doesn’t do anything to fawk it all up…
