I really don’t know who’s the bigger character in Chad and Evelyn’s relationship. Ochocinco has calmed down a bit since moving to the New England Patriots while Evelyn’s behavior on “Basketball Wives” provides enough entertainment for the both of them. But just when I thought Chad might be growing out of his attention-seeking ways, Evelyn reveals this: he wants to walk down the aisle at their wedding while she waits for him at the alter. And (surprise! or not) she’s sort of on board with it.
“I’ve honestly been giving it some thought,” she admitted to Sister 2 Sister. “I don’t want my wedding to be your typical wedding. At the same time, that’s really not something I’m willing to give up. I think he’s a big personality, and I feel like Chad wants—we all want —our moment. So, I’m having my wedding planner figure out something for him, so he can have his entrance and his moment.”
Of course that’s exactly what Chad wants to hear.
“I do everything odd,” he told the mag. “I think it’d be refreshing to do something different to have her wait at the altar for me ‘cause everyone else’s marriage failed doing it the traditional way.”
I agree with the fact that a wedding day shouldn’t be all about the bride, which is the typical matrimonial sentiment, but this seems like one more example of Evelyn bending to please Chad, like that whole open relationship discussion they had on her show a few weeks ago. Evelyn’s clearing up the confusion though, saying she’s not giving Chad a pass to creep.
“We don’t have an open relationship. What I was saying in that conversation is that until you live my lifestyle in my circle you don’t really understand what goes on,” she said. “I’m going to honor my marriage ‘til death, but who’s to say what’s going to happen 20 years from now. I don’t know that. There are so many things thrown at the both of us. How do I know? I’m human. How do I know one day I’m not going to f*** up? I’m not perfect, and we live this lifestyle and things get thrown at you all the time, and I’m not going into the marriage thinking we’re just going to be perfect. That was the whole point of that.”
I’m still trying to figure out the point of Chad walking down the aisle but I guess to each his own. Would you wait for your man at the alter?
