We’ve all watched reality TV shows like “The Bachelor” or any of the “Real Housewives” series and not given it a second thought or batted an eyelash when word came out that one of the couples on the show had broken up. But what about those couples whose relationships have stood the test of time — or at least the test of the cameras and survived the ever so prevalent reality TV curse? Surely they deserve a shout out for their union surviving in a world where audiences tune in to watch their intimate lives day in and day out. Lets look at the celeb reality couples who’ve made their love last under the scrutiny of television cameras and viewers.
I Get Why People Would Believe That: Evelyn Lozada Talks Being Blamed For Provoking The Chad Ochocino Assault
When news of Chad and Evelyn’s physical altercation first leaked back in August, people wasted no time accusing the “Basketball Wives” star of initiating the fight. People even went as far as to say that she got what she deserved. After watching her erratic behavior on the last season of “Basketball Wives”, it was difficult for many to view her as a victim when they tuned in week after week only to see her victimize her fellow cast members. In an interview with Vibe, Evelyn shared that she understands why people blamed her for the incident and accepts full responsibility for her actions last season.
“I felt that I was getting blamed for the incident happening and it was hard…but at the same time I take full responsibility for putting this perception of me out there that I just argue and fight. That’s what most people connect me with, especially with last season. So it’s like ‘Oh, okay well maybe she did something to deserve what happened.’ And I’m like ‘I didn’t do anything’. “
She also expressed how grateful she was that Chad spoke out and cleared up any misconceptions that she may have initiated the fight.
“He did an interview… he was honest and real. I finally felt relieved that he said I didn’t have anything to do with what happened that day. He takes full responsibility…”
I believe that the ability to view a situation from multiple viewpoints exhibits growth. Since the incident and of course her life-changing encounter with Iyanla Vanzant, Ev appears to be continuing down a path of positivity. Hopefully she keeps this in mind while the cameras are rolling and that temper of hers wants to flare up.

You Know What They Say About Making Assumptions: Evelyn Lozada Explains Her “Date” With Chad Johnson
Last month, reality star Evelyn Lozada made headline after headline as she began expressing how she felt about her ex-husband Chad Johnson and even revealed that she felt he deserved another chance. Eyebrows raised as news broke that she and Chad made their first public appearance together at a Florida courthouse where she requested that a judge lift the no-contact restraining order that she had against the former Miami Dolphins player. Once this occurred, most folks assumed that news of a reunion between the reality stars and a resurrection of the unaired show, Chad & Ev wasn’t far behind. A few days ago, photographs surfaced of Chad and Evelyn on what appeared to be a pre New Year’s Eve date. Considering the fact that only days prior to being spotted together, Chad stated that he and Ev were living together via his Twitter page, it was difficult not to believe that their little outing only confirmed their reunion. However, Evelyn is saying that the outing was not at all what it appeared to be and that she and Chad are not back together. In a blog post featured on her website entitled About Last Night, she provides an explanation regarding her date with Chad.
In the post, she shared that she felt it necessary to address the photographs because things were getting a “wee bit out of control”. She went on to express the reason that she and Chad were spotted out together was because she was attending his appreciation dinner with his daughter.
“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.”
She also addressed the current status of their relationship and whether or not the two are actually living together as Chad previously stated.
“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.”
While the photographs that surfaced did appear to tell the whole story, her explanation does seem to make sense. We’ll say her story checks out, for now anyway. We hope that she’s sticking to her original feelings that a romantic reunion probably isn’t the best idea considering the positive strides she’s been attempting to make lately, but we all know how it is once you allow an ex to get his foot in the door. Next thing you know, he’s moving in.
What do you make of all of this?
Evelyn Wants Contact, She Gets Contact: Judge Lifts BBW’s Restraining Order Against Chad At Her Request
Former Miami Dolphins player, Chad Johnson and ex-wife Evelyn Lozada made their first public appearance together since their extremely ugly divorce yesterday in court. Why were they in court you ask? Thankfully, they weren’t there pressing assault charges against each other. Instead, they were doing something remotely opposite. They were there to lift the restraining order that was put in place after the two had a fallout over Chad’s infidelity, which ended in a head-butt lifted.
A video recovered by TMZ depicts Evelyn and Chad standing before a judge in a Florida courtroom as the judge proceeds to ask Evelyn if she feels threatened by Chad or is afraid of him. Evelyn responds “no” each time and the judge honored her request and lifted the restraining order.
Now Im sure that while some are in shock after hearing this news, others aren’t as Ev has been hinting to multiple media outlets that she would like to begin talking to Chad again and how she believes he deserves a second chance. One can’t say for sure that Evelyn’s request to lift her restraining order against Chad will result in a romantic reunion between the two, but then again, the possibility is certainly there.
Just last week, Evelyn told Radar Online that it was difficult having a “no contact clause” with Chad because he still wears his wedding ring and expresses that he wants her back.
“I haven’t spoken to Chad, we can’t – we have a ‘no contact’ clause, but I hear things. He recently did an interview on ESPN and I saw clips of it but it wasn’t easy to watch because he is still wearing his wedding ring, and says he still wants to be married.”
Ironically though, she also told Rumor Fix that although she had some questions for him, she didn’t think that reconnecting the lines of communication was a good idea.
“He hasn’t tried to speak to me directly and I don’t think he is going to risk his freedom, I also don’t think it would be good for us.”
I guess she’s had a change of heart since then.
