Anybody who follows him on Twitter can tell Chad Ochocinco is still living that #StruggleLife after losing his football career and his reality star wife. Well The Broward Palm Beach New Times did a telling feature interview with the former star athlete that reveals a lot about how he got into trouble and how he’s trying to get back out of it. We gathered some of the best quotes here… Check them out below:
On His Twitter Addiction:
“They know everything [about me] because I put it all out there,” he says of his Twitter followers. Whereas most celebrities are guarded, Johnson is proudly unfiltered. “I tweet it all… I’ve got nothing to hide.”
On His Recent Jail Sentence After Slapping His Lawyer’s Hindparts:
“When I had to go do the 30, my first thought was, Shit, if I can sit eight or nine hours in one spot and people-watch, I can do the time,” he says.
He didn’t have to. The judge let him out after seven days. Johnson sent her flowers and a pair of Louboutins as an apology. “That’s not bribery,” he explains. “That’s just how I am.”
On His Newfound Love Affair With Orcas/Killer Whales:
“She was the first thing I ever saw that was outside the norm of what I was used to,” he says of Lolita.
“I don’t need a woman when I’m tonguing a killer whale,” he says on his way out of the Seaquarium. “My life is made.”
“I’m going to own an orca or maybe a whole f**king pod,” he says. “I don’t know how I’m going to do it, but I’m going to own a private island. And I’m going to own an orca. I’m not going to own it where it’s going to be caged. I’m going to own it where they are going to know me and they are going to be lured in by food.
