About Those Hand-Holding Pics Of Evelyn And Chad, Ev Explains: “We Are Still Separated”

Evelyn Chad Spotted Together

Last night the internet was set on fire when some photos of Evelyn Lozada and ex-husband Chad Ochocinco were spotted holding hands and attending a dinner together. Before the speculation could get too far out of control (Are they back together? Did she really move back into his house?), Evelyn took to her blog today to discuss the situation and put a few of the rumors to bed. On her website today, in a post labeled “About Last Night,” she wrote:

I wanted to wish you a happy and safe New Year and take time to address a few rumors and unanswered questions about last night. It seems as though things have gotten a wee bit out of control.

I attended a dinner with Chad’s daughter, not only because I love baby girl like my own, but to support Chad and his fan appreciation dinner. While at the dinner, several photos popped up on the Internet of Chad and I holding hands, while in the process of blessing the food. The blogs made last night seem as though, we walked hand and hand into the restaurant announcing a reunion, which wasn’t the case.

I care for Chad, we are friends and we love one another, however, we are still separated, not living under the same roof and working on ourselves because we have a long way to go. This is a normal and realistic process for anyone and I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I know God holds it and I’m taking things one day at a time. I appreciate the love from so many of you and right now Iā€™m still working on becoming a better person. Chad and I are attending therapy separately, meeting with a Life Coach and trying to figure out how to work on our individual selves and navigate through this entire ordeal.

I wanted you to hear this from me and only me because I would rather you know the truth, than assume.

So there you have it. You can put your speculations aside and enjoy your 2013 knowing that there’s still some love there, but like everyone, they’re works in progress. For now, though, there’s nothing new to report.

Love And Hip Hop Poll
This was the year of Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta. Between the Stevie-Mimi-Joseline love triangle, K.Michelle‘s beefs with Karlie and Rasheeda, and the Erica and Scrappy on-again-off-again romance, America was introduced to a cast of characters that it hasn’t been able to forget. In a season so full of instant-classic moments, as we look back we’re curious which scene was the most iconic of all?

The Basketball Wives L.A. Ladies Offer An Expectant Mom Some Motherly Advice


Motherhood is a big deal to all the ladies of Basketball Wives L.A., and the fact that it played a fairly significant role in this season’s storyline, I felt like it was only appropriate to bring up the subject with the ladies. See, I, your friendly VH1 blogger, am pregnant with my first child, and at the time of the Basketball Wives L.A. reunion I was entering my glowy second trimester and wanted to hear what kinds of advice these ladies would offer an expectant mother. (The entire cast, with the exception of Bambi, has children, but don’t you worry, Bambi’s advice was SO Bambi.)

Before you go off and criticize them or ask me why I’d take advice from a reality star, let me just say that I was surprised at how thoughtful all the ladies’ answers were and appreciate their enthusiasm for me and my still-unnamed baby. Here’s what they told me when I asked for their number one tip for a new mom. Read more…

Evelyn Lozada Rasheeda Kandi Burruss Toya Wright Christmas

Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada spent Christmas in the Bahamas with her family this year, but she happened to run into a few other famous friends while she was enjoying her island holiday. In our Christmas Pic Of The Day, we noticed this shot she posted on Twitter as she hung out with Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta star Rasheeda, plus Kandi Burruss and Toya Wright. She wrote: “Chillin with @ToyaWright @RASHEEDA @Kandi #Bahamas #RealityTV #badbitches :)”

The fab four and their tropical outfits make us slightly regret all that pie and nog we’ve been enjoying. Oops.

Welcome To Harlem, USA, Home Of Black Ink Crew

The Black Ink Crew cast call themselves the coolest people in the world, and judging from the show’s supertrailer, we don’t doubt that. The employees at one of New York’s most reputable tattoo shops are as crazy as they are talented, and that makes for some interesting drama. And sexual tension. And hilarity. It’s a whirlwind and it’s about to go down.

Black Ink Crew premieres January 7th at 9 p.m. ET/PT. For more info about the show, follow @VH1 and @BlackInkCrew on Twitter. Read more…
