Well, it looks like there’s a new woman in former NFL star Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson’s life. Apparently Chad has been seeing a young lady by the name of Crystal for the past several months. According to Baller Alert, she works as a bartender in Miami.

It’s unclear how serious their relationship is, but judging by their Instagram pages, the couple have taken a few trips together over the course of their courtship. Crystal seems like she could be a decent girl, so hopefully their relationship lasts longer than his last few flings.

Just last fall the former reality star was linked to Miami stylist Kimberly Yohman. However, it appears that whatever they had is over. When a fan inquired about Kimberly under one of Crystal’s “Man Crush Monday” posts dedicated to Chad, she simply responded:

“Why does it matter to you?”

Welp, so much for that.

“I’m Good For About 6 Months” Chad Johnson Talks Monogamy, The End Of His Career & Evelyn Lozada

Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson is an interesting character for sure. And you never know what you’ll get from this dude. Just a couple of weeks ago, we were talking about him trying to flirt with Porsha on Twitter. Recently, Chad, who smoked a cigar, sipped a coffee and displayed his black nail polish, sat down with Peter Bailey to discuss his eccentricities, why he can never be monogamous, his relationship with Evelyn and being more than just a football player. Most of us have kind of written Chad off, myself included; but I will say that this interview was very insightful. Chad claims his anti monogamy stance is not due to any type of insecurities. But then, as the interview goes on he says there a lot of women who wouldn’t give men the time of day if they didn’t have money in their pocket. (He did say that Evelyn wasn’t that person though. She was with him when he didn’t have anything.) And then there was an interesting moment where he talked about his grandmother and the word she uses to describe him. Either way, it’s… interesting to say the least.

Check out some of the highlights below and then you can watch the entire interview on the last page.

Did you make critical errors in the love department? 

NoI didn’t make any critical errors because I always tell the truth from jump. Discipline, I lack it. Dealing with one woman lets think rationally, let’s think logically. It ain’t have nothing to do with South beach, it ain’t have nothing to do with Miami.  I don’t care how fine you are, for every fine woman you see, there’s a dude that is tired of that same woman. Human nature is undefeated and what I’ve always done, even in my past relationship was tell the truth from jump. I never lied, I’m not going to lie to you, why sell you a dream.

There are men out there that are willing to give their all, that have the discipline to be able to give them that storybook ending, that fairytale as I so call it. I think I’m good for that for about about 6 months, I’m on track, I’m good. But at some point, I don’t care how fine you are, I’m going to lose interest.


Sex is a beautiful thing and there’s no such thing as a hoe.


Yeah, love don’t go nowhere like that. I will always love her, matter fact I love every goddamn body to an extent, it ain’t going nowhere.

Is it the idea or the person? 

The person, the individual because I got to know another Evelyn, besides what everybody else knows. I don’t care how she operates, I don’t care what it looked like to society, I don’t care how it played out, I don’t care the fact that she moved on. I love that being.

Was that really you on the show? 

Anytime I was on that camera there was no script. I ain’t role playing, I’m giving you Chad that’s raw and uncut, anything that comes out my mouth is raw and uncut.

There are all these stereotypes that all we are is a penis. Do you think you ever played into that? 

Not really because there’s way more than just that to me. There’s a lot of substance, a lot. Outside of football which is why I’m going to be alright. There’s so much more that I can do. There’s so much more that I have to offer whether they like it or not. See, I don’t stop with just football. There’s a small window of opportunity that I had to take advantage of. Man what, the average NFL career is 2-3 years. I got a good 12 years. I didn’t finish when I wanted to but I got some good time in.

The conversation turned to Chad’s football career, his reputation of being a rebel in the league and what he does for money these days.

Why have you been demonized for breaking that mold? 

I don’t know. I take the NFL for instance, the way I played the game of football is frowned upon. The way I played in the NFL is the way I played at Liberty City Optimist. Nothing changed because you gave me a check. That game is meant to be played for fun, they see it as a business. They see that once you get to this point you’re supposed to be a ole model, you to carry yourself a certain way. I am not your child’s parent. I’m the parent so if I’m going to be a role model, I’m not acting so nothing about what I’m doing is a role. I would love to finish my career. I would love to finish playing the game that I love, the game that I dreamt from a child.

Chad says he hasn’t had a check come in in three years. 

How do you survive?

I’m cheap. I been cheap.

Women don’t like cheap men though. 

Conversation will win every time.

Peter Bailey asked Chad whether or not he believed that if he applied that same discipline he gave to football to his romantic relationships, he would be able to be monogamous.

Isn’t perfecting the craft of love, meeting it with the same discipline?

That’s a completely different ball game. Football wasn’t going no where. Football is going to be there when I don’t have anything. When my plate was empty football was there. When my plate was full it was because of football. So right now, let’s say my plate is empty again, football is still there. Most of the time if your plate ain’t full, ain’t nobody coming to your table. Let’s not forget now. We talking about love and dealing with women but half of them wouldn’t even deal with you if your plate ain’t right.

How can you love without sacrifice?

Sacrifice my freedom? Why? Show me a man with options who’s not doing his thing, you can shoot me dead.

Where does spirituality come in?

I don’t know. I have no idea. I can only speak for me. I can’t speak on anyone else.

Are you spiritual? 

Very, very, very. and still am I able… I’m not finna fool myself. I’m not going to put that pressure on myself.

Monogamy again…

Maybe I will get to that point where it will be just one person. But right now man, sugar ain’t budging…But right now my ugly ass can’t abide by that.

Why do you call yourself ugly Chad?

That’s the way my grandmother introduces me, so I just stick with it. Still to this day, everyday since I was a kid, that’s how she talks to me. “Where your ugly ass been at?”

People, particularly people in the black community being so willing to put each other in a box and

Why you got your nails black?

Ni**a, because I’m in a dark space right now, that’s why. I’m straight. Am I gay? No. If I was, would I bite my tongue and say that I wasn’t? No.

This guy is really complex. I’m wondering what a conversation with Iyanla would do for him. That piece about his grandmother calling him ugly…until today is very telling…in addition to all the other stuff.

Girl, Run! Chad Johnson And Porsha Stewart Flirt On Twitter

chad johnson and porsha stewart flirt

Now that Porsha is newly divorced and on the market, it only makes sense that dudes are trying to get at her, she’s an attractive woman. And while it would nice for Porsha to move on and find love, we have to say that she absolutely, positively should not be moving on with the likes of someone like Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson.

We all know how the man gets down. The fact that he cheated on his wife, days into their marriage and head butted her when she confronted him, is no secret.

And while we might suspect that Johnson would maybe want to keep his love interests on the low low for a while, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Johnson is a big fan of Twitter, you may remember that’s how he and Evelyn met. And since Twitter has led to a relationship in the past, we’re sure he’s thinking why not go back to the well. He threw out this line to the “Real Housewife” on Twitter and unfortunately, she bit.

See how the interaction went down.

Some waywards praised Ocho Cinco for being a mack while others said that this whole interaction was a mess and Porsha should not go down this road. Of course we agree. She shouldn’t. The biggest issue is the fact that Johnson is a known abuser and cheater. But beyond that, perhaps she might want to step away from former football players for a while. Or maybe she should think about the fact that she’s falling right into the same trap Evelyn fell into. Either way Porsha, girl… run. I pray the conversation didn’t continue in their DMs.

At the end of the day, this was just a couple of tweets. Porsha could very well have kept it at a couple of smileys and kept on moving. But if you see these two out here in these streets together, know that this is where it started and you saw it here first.







Evelyn Lozada Bailed On “BBW” Reunion Because Of Pregnancy And NOT Wanting To Talk About Chad

Evelyn Lozada

Evelyn Lozada sat down for an interview with OMG! Insider to talk about her pregnancy, and her future plans after Basketball Wives. In the interview, she finally sets the record straight about why she refused to participate in the Basketball Wives reunion, if she really does want to do the whole spin-off show thing, and why she says she doesn’t want to talk about Chad Johnson anymore. Probably because she spent this whole last season chatting about him, crying about him and stressing about him non-stop. Here’s the tea according to Miss E:

Why She Bailed On The BBW Reunion:

“When the show was ending, I told my publicist and just talking to my family, ‘I don’t want to do the reunion, I don’t want to talk about my relationship anymore.’ We’re both trying to move on, including my family, and myself…

I decided not to do the reunion and then right after that is when I found out I was pregnant. So I’m like, ‘Oh my God.’ I didn’t want to unveil the bump on the reunion. It’s just a little messy and probably a little tacky so I just decided I’m not going to do anything I’m just going to stand still and enjoy this pregnancy.”

She Deals With Chad Johnson Tweeting About Her Often:

“Well, I try not to listen to anything, obviously things pop up on your timeline on Twitter. I’m active in social networking, but thank God for the block button!”

What Her Future Is With Basketball Wives:

“I don’t even know if there’s going to be another season. I know that I signed on to do five seasons and I did five seasons. It’s one of those things, the show ended a few months ago, so we’ll see what happens. Me personally, I just really want to focus on the rest of my pregnancy and the baby, which I’m really excited about.”

If She Wants To Do A Spin-off Show After All Her Years Of Reality TV Drama:

“I would. You know what? Reality TV, even though there’s a lot of negativity, it’s been more positive for me. I was able to do a lot of things because of the show. I’m not one of those people who bashes it when it’s done. I feel like, thank God for Shaunie. I always tell her, I sometimes call her and I’m like, ‘I blame you for my life being so crazy.’ But at the same time, you have to learn how to make the most of it. I was able to put my daughter through college because of it, so I’ve been very blessed because of it.”

Lozada seems more confident but also more mature in this interview than in the past. Check out the full sit-down below and share your thoughts.

“The Father Doesn’t Matter, I Just Need To Style And Dress The Baby”: Chad Johnson On Evelyn’s Pregnancy

Chad Johnson



This past weekend, we reported Basketball Wives reality star Evelyn Lozada is pregnant with her second child. As fans and celebrities alike poured out their excitement and congratulatory messages, a surprising person could not contain how happy he was for Lozada! You know who it is.

Chad Johnson, Evelyn’s ex-husband, wished her well and had this to say to TMZ Sports:

“[I'm] super happy for her, I will always love her and wish her nothing but the best. I have unisex Louboutin infant spikes ready as my gift.”

Despite their marriage dissolving due to a domestic violence incident in 2012, Johnson still believes he needs to “style and dress the baby” although he has had no real communication with Lozada within over a year–or at least, that we know of…

“No communication with her in over a year and the father doesn’t matter, I just need to style and dress the baby.”

While I doubt Lozada will be as excited about him sending her baby lavish gifts, it’s not the first time Johnson has tried to enter Lozada’s life again. Oh Chad, you’re always doing the most.


Wait, Evelyn Lozada Is Six Months Pregnant?

Well folks, it looks like former Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada may be expecting more than just a potential reality TV spin-off show. According to TMZ, the 37-year-old Broolyn-born entrepreneur is pregnant with her second child!

Though these reports have yet to be officially confirmed or denied by Evelyn and her reps, a source who claims to be a close friend of Lozada is saying that she is six months into her pregnancy. The source went on to say that the pregnancy was planned and that the father is actually someone who Ev has been seeing for almost a year, adding that things have gotten pretty serious between the pair. The snitch did not reveal who the mystery man is, but if we had to take a random guess, we’d say it might be L.A. Dodgers player Carl Crawford. The two were spotted together earlier this year and were rumored to be be dating. Of course at this point, this is all pure speculation, but we’re pretty sure the entire story will be revealed in no time.

While a confirmed pregnancy would be major news, I can’t say that it’s all that shocking, as Ev has been pretty vocal in past seasons of Basketball Wives about her desire to have more children. If you recall, she and ex-husband, Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, spoke about having twins at some point in their marriage, but unfortunately, things didn’t work out. We’ll certainly keep you posted as this story develops. And if the rumors are in fact true, congrats Ev!

Does Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson Have A New Woman In His Life?

Despite sending mixed messages through social media that he still had love for ex-wife, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada, it looks like Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson might be moving on with someone new.

According to The Jasmine Brand, Chad Johnson is allegedly getting close to a young woman named Kimberly Yohman. And while Johnson is one who enjoys posting pictures of many women on his Instagram, including ladies who love to wear tights and toot their behinds for the camera, she’s the only one we’ve seen him actually kiss on and show a clear admiration for. Yohman is reportedly a popular Miami stylist and has dressed reality stars (all spandex everything) with fashions from her line,, including Draya Michele, K. Michelle and Kimbella to name a few. And I’m sure you’ve seen someone on Instagram who has rocked a skintight, cut-out heavy look from her line for their birthday or New Year’s Eve.

Anywho, the two have been seen getting extra close, going out to eat with one another, showing off their shoe game together and sharing a kiss for the camera. So is this young lady the woman in Chad’s life? No statements yet from either party on the matter, but they definitely make an interesting duo. Check out more pictures of the them together, and of Ms. Yohman in some of her designs, below.

Caption This Picture Of Chad Johnson Kissing Evelyn Lozada…Through The TV Screen; She Responds

October 9th, 2013 - By Victoria Uwumarogie
Share to Twitter Email This


At first glance, one isn’t sure whether to burst out laughing or give Chad Johnson the ultimate side-eye for this picture. The former football and reality star confused the hell out of his followers yesterday when he posted this interesting picture of himself giving a kiss to Evelyn Lozada through the television screen as an episode of Basketball Wives played. The caption he posted with the picture says (as you can see) “I caught bae by surprise…” and ironically, he caught Lozada during a moment in the show when she just so happened to look surprised.

If you follow Johnson on Twitter, you already know that he stays cracking jokes and acting a fool, but this isn’t the first time he’s show some form of love to Lozada on his Twitter. If you’ll recall, when Basketball Wives first came back on, he was predicting what we all found out: that with Evelyn having an emotional moment every week that has to do with their infamous altercation, the show just wasn’t going to be as interesting. But he also, in his mind-games playing sort of way, publicly said that she needs to “come on back home.” And he did get that random tattoo of her face on the side of his lower leg, so clearly he still thinks about that woman–a lot.

The folks over at Necole Bitchie thought that a Twitter post Lozada shared later in the day that said, “I love surprises!” was a response to Johnson’s picture, but she quickly sent them a message to shut that down:

“Hey Necole! My tweet was in no way shape or form connected to Chad! I don’t talk or entertain anything that man does via social network! I have moved on with my life & have left all that drama behind! Please update your story.”

So there you have it. He might be trying to get her attention, but she’s not having it. At least, that’s what she says…

So how would you caption this comical (or creepy) photo of Johnson?

“Chris And Rihanna Tried It Again”: Tami Roman Hints Chad And Evelyn Will Get Back Together

Tami Roman

Tami Roman has stuck her foot in her mouth again with the Rihanna/Chris Brown – Chad/Evelyn comparisons. When the notorious member of the “Basketball Wives” crew came by our office we had to ask her if she still stood by that advice that Evelyn should try to work things out with Chad if she still loved him and when Tami said yes, we had one more question: Do you think Chad and Evelyn are really a good match? Here’s what she said:

“I think that Chad and Evelyn have a lot of similarities and that’s why they got together in the first place. So from that standpoint, who’s to say we won’t see them together in the future. We don’t know what’s going to happen. You know, Chris and Rihanna tried it again.”

I wonder if she missed the part where they also broke up again.

Nevertheless, Tami said all that and plenty more in our video interview below, including admitting that she gave “Basketball Wives” another try because she was broke. Check out the video and tell us what you think.

Won’t He Do It!? Chad Johnson Finally Gets A New Job

Chad Johnson


While he might not be playing actual football on a football field for the NFL, Chad Johnson is about to get a steady paycheck again by talking about football. Fantasy Football that is.

First and foremost though, if you’re asking what fantasy football is, the definition according to is, “a game where the participants (called fantasy owners) draft a team of real-life NFL players and then each fantasy team scores points based on all those real-life players’ statistical performances.” The more you know…

Anywho, according to TMZ, Johnson will work alongside a panel of fantasy football connoisseurs for CBS Sports, and they’ll share their opinion on all things Fantasy Football, because the whole game is bigger than I thought. He tweeted his excitement about his new job saying, “Dear 3 million + followers I have a job now, can thank/follow —> @daverichard @HorowitzJason @JameyEisenberg @CBSSports” After making the announcement, he got right to work, even answering fantasy football questions for followers on Twitter (yes, it’s that deep).

If you’ll recall, Johnson lost his livelihood playing for the Miami Dolphins after he was arrested for domestic violence when he head-butted then-wife Evelyn Lozada. Since then, they’ve divorced, he’s apologized and gone to jail for a hot second, she’s talked about the domestic violence incident to Iyanla, Amy Robach and a whole host of other folks, they pretended to make up then broke up, and of course, it has been a major part of the new season of Basketball Wives. But despite all the drama surrounding that incident, Seems that Johnson is finally getting himself together again. Congrats!
