Chad Johnson

Condom Use was Plot Point

on 'Basketball Wives'

File this under IRONIC -- years before Evelyn Lozada's nuclear argument with husband Chad Johnson over a box of condoms left her in the ER ... she told him if he WAS going to cheat, to at least wrap his tool.

The awkward conversation went down on a previously aired episode of VH1's "Basketball Wives" (above) ... Lozada and Johnson sat down for a pre-wedding talk to discuss the now-unemployed NFL'rs tendency to cheat.

In the clip (shown in flashback) ... the "BB Wife" tells Chad that if he is going to shack up with another woman, she wants him to be honest about it and at least "Go to the pharmacy and get condoms" first.

Evelyn later explained that she and Chad didn't have an open relationship ... and she never WANTED him to cheat ... but she was always realistic about the possibility of Chad straying and wanted to be safe.

Fast forward to this weekend ... when Chad was arrested for domestic violence ... and told police he and Evelyn began fighting after she discovered a receipt for a box of condoms.

Number one she is very violent towards others but doesn't like it when it happens to her. She is a golddigger and a wannabe and used this poor sucker for his money. The hoe bag will be back with him.

I'm so sick and tired of these celebrities just doing whatever the hell they want while honest working people attempt to keep what little bit of a honest life they have left! I knew that damn marriage wasn't going to work out in the first place! Lets me honest half the men and women are just hoes with money and that real!

I think what Evelyn said to Chad on this episode is going way over people's heads! She has been through this before with previous relationships, and has seen friends go through the same thing. So it would be stupid for her to think that him cheating would never even come into question! She knew his lifestyle. He's a professional athelete and she knows, even though she doesn't want him to cheat, that anything can happen in the heat of the moment on the road. So she was telling him if he is going to cheat, at least be safe and smart about it and use a condom so he doesn't bring anything back to her or get another women pregnant. That doesn't mean that if he did that and was honest about it she would accept it!!!

Yea, she did say she had no problem with him straying, as long as he told her. Maybe that was the problem, he didn't tell her first that he was getting ready to stray. She knew how he was, deal with it.
