Is The Ev and Ocho Show really going to happen? Considering that their once-fairy-tale-esque relationship went poof at the revelation of serious domestic abuse, it was all but a given that VH1 would pull the plug on the show and the wedding special which were both already taped. But…Evelyn is saying something different. In response to a fan tweeting her about the likelihood of ever seeing the show on air, Evelyn responded with a maybe.
Personally, I don’t think it’s in poor taste to air the show. If anything, it may give viewers a better understanding on the illusion between edited/scripted reality shows and reality. I myself was completely surprised by Chad Ochocinco’s violent ways. On Basketball Wives, he always came off as the gentle one in the relationship while Evelyn came off as the angry one. Although I didn’t believe that they could be truly in love after such a short and public courtship, I would never have imagined Chad to be the aggressive man that we now know he is capable of being.
VH1 will certainly get its fair share of criticism if it moves ahead with airing the show but I hope they move forward as it will be another fascinating record in the history of reality TV.
