In news that is a surprise to nearly no one, the premiere of Ev and Ocho on September 3rd is a no go.
After Chad Ochocinco Johnson’s arrest last week for deomestic violence against his newlywed bride, Evelyn, VH1 has pulled the plug on the show. VH1 had this to say about the events leading to the cancellation of the series:
“Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series Ev and Ocho from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it,” the network said in a statement Monday.
Chad Johnson will also be looking for another job as well. The former Miami Dolphins receiver now has no team to play for either. That’s right. I said former, because he was also just dropped by his team. If he goes to jail for this assault, it may be a while before we hear any positive news from him. Now all we have to do is sit back and wait and see what his wife does considering all that’s on her plate. Is she going to cash in or stand by her man?
