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.

Why is this show called Basketball Wives when no one is married to a basketball player any more. Shouldn't the show be called Ex-Basketball Wives. Or maybe becuase they are all such B... (they talk about each other and others so much) it should be called Bitter Ex-Basketball Wives.
