Chad & Evelyn: Big Time Payday

for 'Basketball Wives' Spinoff

3/12/2012 3:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada have signed their dealChad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada have signed their deal to do a "Basketball Wives" spinoff show with VH1 ... and they each have 300,000 reasons to celebrate ... TMZ has learned. 

According to our sources, filming on the new show will begin in the next few weeks, right after taping for  "Wives" ends. We're told the show will focus on the couple as they get ready to exchange vows this summer. 

Our sources say negotiations finally wrapped last week and the two will each take home $300,000 for about two months of work.

As TMZ first reported, when Evelyn re-upped her contract with "Basketball Wives" last year, part of the deal called for VH1 to give her and Chad their own show.

The show should be officially announced this week.

I can not believe that Evelyn thinks she is so bad! Always jumping in someone's face. I hope she meets her match one day! Yes, she is a loose woman, a ho, screwing around with any and everybody! Luckily, she hitch on to Chad. I don't think it is going to last though! Why is she so mad when people are telling the truth! The question should be do you think I am not a good whore? Then get mad if people say No!

WTH!!!! YOU ARE LETTING EVELYN HAVE A SHOW?! THIS GARDEN TOOL NEED TO TAKE HER STANK LOOSE ASS SOMEWHERE NOT AROUND GOOD WOMEN AND MEN. I THINK THAT SHE WILL SLEEP WITH A DOG IF IT WILL GET HER BILLS PAID. CHAD IS A FOOL IF HE THINK THAT SHE IS GOING TO STOP WITH HIM. THE SLUT LIKE MONEY AND ONCE SHE MARRIES CHAD THE PLOT WILL BE COMPLETE TO GET MOST OF HIS CASH IN SETTLEMENT. THEN IT WILL BE OFF TO THE NEXT ONE THAT HAS MORE MONEY!!! ONCE A SLUT, ALWAYS A SLUT!!!!!

Who really wants to see this violent woman marry. There should have been a spin-off show about anger management.

Boycotting the Basketball Wives of Miami and Los Angeles
VH1 and its corporate parent, Viacom Entertainment has aired 4 seasons of their Basketball Wives television franchise. The show was initially promoted as an avenue for viewers to grow, learn and discuss the successes and perils of life as a “basketball wife.” However, the show has proven to be nothing more than a set of glossy choreographed boxing matches marked by superficiality and monumental levels of bullying. In the year 2012, where we have a bi-racial president and an African American first lady, we need not be “tragically colored.” The reality series perpetuates the most vulgar stereotypes about women of color particularly, Black women. The show has very few redeeming qualities if any at all. Young people across the nation tune into to the most grotesque illustrations of black femininity. Women well beyond their child-bearing years, cursing, fighting and destroying property. One would have to assume that the show’s wild success presents a complicated problem for thoughtful, scripted and well crafted television. American popular culture has taken on a particular tone similar to that of Ancient Rome. Americans have become a ravenous community obsessed with the “spectacle.” Romans were consumed with their violent gladiators and many Americans are consumed with their tragic reality t.v. “stars.” These questionable activities occur all in the name of entertainment. Hollywood is a beautiful cultural mosaic made mostly out of broken dreams and broken people. But, we refuse to partake in Black cultural degradation and misappropriation. In the year 2000, we thought that the matrix would hijack us little did we know that we would run towards it with open arms. It is beginning to border on exploitation and we are all finally tapping out on this one. We are people of color and we are talented, determined and cosmically powerful. We embody light and love. We do not want to see these types of representations of Black women on VH1 in the form of Basketball Wives Miami or Los Angeles!
