NFL star Chad Ochocinco and his reality tv star fiance Evelyn Lozada will have their own VH1 “Basketball Wives” spinoff.
TMZ reports, each received $300,000 for starring in the eight-part series “Ev and Ocho” that will first air in September, ending with a two-episode wedding finale.
It seems VH1 wants in on the profits recently gained by a similar reality tv wedding special. The E! Entertainment network nabbed its best ratings ever last fall by showing Kim Kardashian’s wedding to NBA player Kris Humphries. The marriage lasted a mere 72 days.
Lozada has starred in four seasons of “Basketball Wives,” originally showcasing the end of her engagement to NBA star Antoine Walker, before dating Ochocinco.
