Another Ev & Ocho ‘Surprise’: They’re In No Rush To Make It To The Altar

- By Bossip Staff

Again, try to contain your shock. Because, we’re sure you would have never guessed that this wedding wasn’t going to happen in the same whirlwind fashion as Chad & Evelyn’s whole “relationship” and “engagement.

Chad Ochocinco may have put a ring on model Evelyn Lozada’s finger after just four months of dating. But don’t expect their wedding to happen as quickly.

“He has four kids. I have one. We want to be engaged for at least a year and enjoy our time with our children, and then we’re going to plan our wedding,” Lozada told PEOPLE at Cosmopolitan’s Fun Fearless Males of 2011 party in New York, where Ochocinco was honored.

And when they do start planning, they’ll have to compromise on some things. “I want something small, even though he wants something big,” Lozada says. “I want something intimate. I’m 35, and we have five kids together. I don’t want anything over the top.”

The pair are in better agreement on the topic of kids – they both want more. In fact, Lozada says they would love to have twins. “The more kids, the happier I am,” she says.

Ochocinco, 33 – the Cincinnati Bengals player and former contestant on Dancing with the Stars – says his relationship with Lozada works so well because they don’t hide anything from each other.

“I know everything about her, so there are no surprises,” he says. “My grandma says, ‘Always marry your best friend, because your best friend will be able to tell you anything and not hide nothing.’ That’s one of the things I really like, which is one of the reasons why she’s wearing that ring.”

And they really do share everything – including the specifics of their former love affairs. “Sometimes we sit back at night and we literally sit for three to four hours and share stories about who we’ve dated and what we’ve done … every detail,” says Lozada.

Adds Ochocinco: “I’m nosy. I want to know who you’ve been with.”

The couple have also grown closer through adversity, after Lozada – the ex-fiancée of former NBA player Antoine Walker – was attacked on her VH1 reality show Basketball Wives after revealing she had slept with a castmate’s ex-husband. She said Ochocinco helped her get through the episode.

“I was having a hard time [watching],” she says. “I have a lot of followers on Twitter, so everyone has an opinion on your life, and they think they know you. Some of the things they say are hurtful, but he made me keep it together. He’s very supportive with everything.”

Ain’t that sweet?

      NICE NEWS !
      My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-

    • *sigh*

      “The more kids, the happier I am,” she says.

      Why do I hear “the more

      child support, the happier I am. The more

      money I can get, the happier I am.”


      The only thing trashy about Evelyn these days is that she aint even tryin to hide it!

      (To me) It’s only

      disgusting when it’s obvious.

  • daahlingnikki

    That picture pretty much says it all about their
    relationship…and him posing like that speaks volumes…chile please…lmao..

  • Misha

    Oh please, you trying to tell me that your fiance helped you through it. Child please. He was thinking what the heck do I have on my hands. hence the reasoning for the 3-4 hrs you sit up and talk about your exes. Now he wants to know everything because that one he did not see coming. gtfoh

  • Not A Fan

    Word of advice…its never good for a woman to tell a man everything about her past. I don’t care how understanding or non judgemental he claims to be nobody wants a chick that has been around a couple of blocks!!!! However in Evelyns case I’m pretty sure it was like talking to one of her home girls cuz Chad is gay!

    • resurrected

      So true men always find a way to flip the script eventually. And you can never hold them to the same standards as they love to hold you. That why I laugh when the side women talk about the wife not keeping her man happy because most men are never really happy inside. Plus later on the woman that he cheats on you with he hates later and wants to forget about her as soon as possible and hates the fact that the wife now knows that truth.

    • brittany

      lol. i’m a tad bit shocked they’re in no rush considering how skanky she is. i’m surprised they didn’t do a quickie wedding in vegas

  • UnitedStatesCodeSTFU

    What real man plays like that?

    • LifeisGood

      Exactly! That’s what I was thinking…..but then again, don’t the MAJORITY of men play??

      Come on now.

      Anyway, individually I don’t care much for these two…..but this seems to work for them. I can say this, they are BOTH funny as all get up.

      I hope that they make it.

  • I just don't know?

    How many engagements rings does this dude have in his closet? She is really thirsty…

    • resurrected

      Not too long ago he was never even giving any women of color a chance and now all of a sudden he is so into Evenlyn. He is going to be cheating on her with so many Becky’s and she will soon meet a ton of women with attitudes just like hers of not giving a fk.

    • LifeisGood

      ……let me put it like this….they still sell cracker jacks, don’t they?

  • Oooh Weee!!

    LMAO @ thiz horse-toothed, freak show, free-4-all, attention wh0ring, media circuz….


    XD XD

  • TriniGlamazon

    Evelyn is a wh0re, and Chad knows, so he’s never going to marry her. Because he knows if he does make her an “honest” woman, he’d be a joke!!!

  • Jay the Real One

    It’s a MEDIA relationship

  • onlymia

    @TYRONE, you are partially right. Except I am not mad fat nor do I think I look or have the features of a monkey(simian woman). Yes ladies that is what that means. On the other hand you are right that a lot of our black men are going for another race. I feel whats good for the gander is good for the goose if that’s what you want. If you are black Tyrone I say shame on you to even allow those words to come out of you mouth that any black woman looks like a monkey. It sounds to me like you are angry but im not charging you to lay on my couch so that I can listen to your bullshit. If you are not black then you are a racist and how dare you one race, color or person is no better than the other we are all mixed with something.We all have something special about each other.

  • onlymia


  • Tyrone

    @ onlymia , I am not angry. Im just providing my opinion like every one else on this blog.A unique , different , extreme or polarizing , confrontational view is not necessarily the result of anger or bitterness.

  • Omg

    Chad has four kids by a black woman whats your point?

    • Tyrone

      The point is that Chad rejected and publically denounced black women when he was in a position to do so as a result of being rich and famous. Prior to becoming rich and famous he dealt with black women , hence, four black kids. Since becoming rich and famous he only chooses to deal with non black women. This is a typical behavior of black men with means.

  • janen key


  • CJ

    The more kids by him,, the bigger her PAYDAY when all else fails! Duh! W/ her reputation a pre-nup would be beyond wise.. she is beyond thirsty,,,

  • Jenn

    Best friends after four months of dating…..GTFOH!!!

    And that pose is gay as hell!!

    I’ll be shocked if they actually make it down the aisle…..otherwise I see this falling apart before it even starts.

  • SilverBullet

    All 4 of his children are chocolate and beautiful. Which tells me that he obviously is/was attracted to chocolate women. You, sir, have no clue what you are talking about unless you have done some type of research study with various men and their preferences in women, which I highly doubt. Your ignorant views originate purely from media sources not research so please get lost!

  • Wrap

    aint shyt white about kobe’s wife. she doent come to being white.

  • resurrected

    Regardless how mixed one might look and people have told me that I looked mixed with something all of the time it does not define a person. Why wants a man who is only concerned with the superficial traits of life? While so many black men are putting down black women you also have to be picked and selected by a woman of your interest. I would rather pick a person with an abundance of heart and mind then a shallow egotistical person any day. Men of this world today do so many women such an injustice with there way of thinking.

      stfu! You ugly SP!C!!!

    • Tyrone

      Spoken by a fat unattractive woman.

  • StuckInDaMatrix

    You posting under these interracial threads is tired! Seems like you and a few others make it your life to post negativity! That tells me your unhappy and insecure. Otherwise, you would be with your white woman or latina right? aww what’s the matter they rejected you too?

  • Delia Steinbrenner

    FOR REAL???? Both of them really deserve each other. They both NEED so much attention. He looks like a ninja turtle and she has a mouth like a sailor and lips like a fish. TRASHY

  • Northern Cali Honey

    Look at Evelyns face!! It says it all. Can we stop giving these two attention already?!

  • chick

    I’ve been reading a lot of blogs nd comments it seems women focus on race a lot. I haven’t seen a woman that intimidates me. What it is that she’s a skank! And if she liked children so much why does she have only 1? Children with a rich man is guaranteed income. Tammy didn’t smack that gutter mouth skank hard enough! She thinks he helping her,he’s really gathering information to use in a divorce. So shut ur ugly mouth bit%h.


    @ TYRONE

    You at it again? I do enjoy emasculating you on these posts. It’s interesting how you can turn an entertainment story about two “celebrities and turn it into a race baiting debate/therapy session. It’s painfully obvious that you have some deep rooted issues which in turn, has made you bitter, angry, and self loathing. As previously suggested, speaking to a psychiatrist would help you resolve some of thoes issues. And didn’t I tell you before to stop using the term “Simian”?
