Major Commitment

to 'Basketball Wives'

8/25/2010 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cincinnati Bengals star Chad Ochocinco won't just be playing football in September -- dude will spend several weeks shooting scenes for the VH1 reality show "Basketball Wives" ... TMZ has learned.

As we previously reported, Chad is all set to appear on the show next season -- as the love interest of his current girlfriend Evelyn Lozada.

Now, sources connected to the show tell us Chad has inked a deal to shoot several scenes between September and October ... and the shoots will be scheduled around his football obligations.

We're told some of Chad's scenes will take place in Miami -- where the show is based -- whenever he can spare the time.  However, sources tell us VH1 wants Ochocinco material so badly ... they're willing to shoot scenes out in Cincinnati too.

Yup, his love interest until some groupie comes along and he bangs her. He'll be lucky if she keeps her mouth shut or hired Gloria Alldead to get a lawsuit going, "Loss of affection" whatever.

If TMZ insists on telling all these stupid "behind the reality show scenes" insider information stories about a show I've never even heard of before, they need to at least explain a little about it. If the show is called "Basketball Wives", then I would assume it is a reality show about the wives of professional basketball players. If this woman is on this show, does that mean she is a "wife"? If she is married, why is she dating another man and if he is a football player, why is he on a show about basketball players? This is so ridiculous and for you to publish a story about a woman nobody's ever heard of and a reality show that nobody has ever heard of . . . why?

@ #5 No one has to explain anything about this show to you. Its your fault that YOU have never heard of this show. Many people have heard of this show that is produced by Shaq's ex wife on VH1. Like most "housewives" shows not ALL are actually married and Evelyn she use to be engaged to the basketball player, Antoine Walker.

Glad they have a timeline, story, and scenes planned out for this reality show. Hopefully he can learn his lines in time.

Isn't he the one that threw the lame party they all left on an episode last season?

He might as well. It's not like he can play football for sh it. He'll need another career soon and this one requires no talent or brains so it seems perfect!
