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.

LMFAO, well that tells me the outcome of "Ochocinco, The Ultimate Catch," his dating show that is currently still premiering...proves that they are probably all fake...they just all looking to cash in, I guess there is never enough money.

She is the same skank that has topless photos on the internet . BBW is a show about groupies. Only 2 women are actual wives. And Evelyn Skankzada now with Ochocinco shows she is a 36 yo groupie.

@ #7 Child Please ! As Chad would say. The show is not that heard of because its only been on one season and its not mainstream nor is it a huge ratings draw. And the only reason Evelyn Lozada is known somewhat is due to her topless photos and her pr team. And now for smashing Ochocinco.

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.

Question!    

Is there a reason she isn't attractive at all? Honestly, she has horse teeth, huge gums, and no lips.

But, I suppose she fits well with a man who changes his name to, "Ochocinco" to represent 85 when in actuality 85 in Spanish is Ochenta Y Cinco.

I wish them all the best.

First of all, If any of u had the chance to take part in any of the opportunities Chad has you would jump and dont be fake about it. Check the stats people, he ranks TOP in the NFL for his skills and i'll admit he can be an attention whore at times but he does alot of good things in the Cincinnati area for young athletes. Jealousy doesnt look good on anyone:)
