It’s official: VH1 is so, so excited to have a front row seat to the nuptials of Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco. We know the rumors and reports have been flying for a while, but now we can finally confirm that we’ll be airing an eight-part series called Ev And Ocho that will give fans an inside look at the pair’s wedding planning and, ultimately, the wedding itself. The series will premiere in September and it’s going to be the lo-o-o-ongest summer ever as we wait for it. Who will be on the guest list? Will Chad really walk down the aisle? We’ll have to watch to find out. Read on for all the details.
NEW SERIES “EV AND OCHO” (WORKING TITLE) PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 2012 ON VH1
Santa Monica, CA – March 12, 2012 – VH1 has signed “Basketball Wife” Evelyn Lozada and her fiancé, NFL superstar Chad Ochocinco for a new series showcasing their upcoming wedding, including all the scheduling, details and drama that lead to their special day. The eight-part series “Ev and Ocho” will premiere September 2012 and consist of eight half-hour episodes concluding with a two-part wedding finale.
If you’re like the rest of us who were watching Mob Wives last night, you were probably pretty shocked to see Renee Graziano turn on Drita D’Avanzo during a trip to the Poconos (a trip Drita wasn’t even on). Renee had heard from Drita that Ramona was talking about Renee’s ex in a very unflattering way, and when Ramona denied it and swore on her kids that Drita made the rumors up, hell broke loose and Drita ended up on Renee’s s— -list. So when Drita was on Big Morning Buzz Live today, that big blow-up was a topic of conversation and Drita assured us that the truth will come out eventually because “The truth does always come out.” Later, in response to comments Karen makes about how Drita lies, Drita defended herself saying “I don’t lie and the last thing I want to do is cause trouble with Renee and Ramona, but Ramona did say what she said and I heard it and I’m not crazy.” Watch the full clip above and decide for yourself who’s telling the truth.
Just a quick reminder to all our Mob Wives fans that we’ll be hosting a live webcam chat with Renee Graziano today at 3 p.m. ET on VH1.com. Not only can you watch our chat, moderated by TVGuide.com‘s Lindsay Silberman, but you can participate and connect to the conversation with your webcam for a chance to chat with Renee and ask her anything about the show. We’re dying to know exactly what went down at Shenanigans last night, personally.
Here’s the direct link to that chat which begins at 3 p.m. ET.

On last night’s episode of Stevie TV, Stevie Ryan and Co. parodied one of VH1′s biggest hits, Basketball Wives, in more ways that one. In the clip above, check out a clip from Basketball Wives Newark where the glasses fly and the drama is just the result of more drama, and wait for the debut of Basketball Husbands, which proves that WNBA husbands can be just as catty as anyone else on reality TV. Most surprising of all though is how catty the Basketball Mascots can be…You can call them anything, just don’t call them late for their charity auction.
VH1…It’s Basketball Wife-tastic.
Karen Gravano hates to shop. That was the big lesson I learned when I sat down with the Mob Wives star and author recently to discuss fashion. When it comes to clothes and jewelry, this woman is low-maintenance (but she reveals that her real vice is shopping for housewares, in another life she totally wants to be an interior designer). In this Style Seen exclusive, we’ve got an interview and some gorgeous shots of Karen who admits that though she dislikes clothes shopping, it’s hard to avoid when you’re a mom to a twelve-year-old who loves it.
What happens when you take any of our shows on the road? Mayhem, usually. And this week’s installment of Mob Wives was no different. There was fighting, there were security guards, there was drunk-dialing, and then there were the fake teeth. Sexeh! In short, it was indeed “Some f—ing trip.”
This Monday marks the season finale of T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle, and we’re about to have some serious separation anxiety. It seems like just yesterday that we met Major, King, the OMG Girlz, and the rest of the Harris family, and we’re not quite ready to let them go. Sad as we are, we’re excited to post the final sneak peek of season one, where Tip is preparing for a big AKOO fashion show and has to break it to his sons Domani and Messiah, and to his mother that they are really terrible at walking the runway. The T.I. And Tiny season finale airs Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Evelyn Lozada stopped by our offices today to appear on Big Morning Buzz Live today to talk about the huge year she has ahead of her. Not only is she getting married, which is big enough on its own, but she’s got a book coming out, she has a makeup line, and of course she’s still starring on Basketball Wives. On the topic of her wedding to Chad Ochocinco, Evelyn said that she’s worried Chad might try to upstage her. Why? Oh, he just wants to walk down the aisle instead of her, but she’s not about to let that happen. “I’m like, you’re not gonna take that moment away from me! What are you, crazy?” she says. “He’s not stealing my moment.”
Maybe the funniest part of the interview though would have to be when Evelyn describes new cast member Kenya, saying she’s got a “pageant-girl, creepy kind of like, serial killer kind of thing going on.” Watch the whole thing here.
