You know when you're little and your mom tells you not to touch the stove? Yet, even though you know it's hot, you just get the urge to give it a little feel. This is how we look at celebrities who do reality shows. You know things about your past life are going to come out, so why do you get upset when it happens? And our personal favorite: A-list couples who put their lives on TV. We have seen time and time again that when people in love get on TV, they some how fall out of it the minute the cameras turn on. The next couple sure to fall to the "reality TV curse?" Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco. Maybe.
As many of us watched this season on Basketball Wives, the two met over Twitter and it all took off from there. In our interview with Royce Reed, she pretty much broke down the relationship to a publicity stunt. But we guess we will all get to see soon enough. "Sources" told TMZ that E! is ready to snap up the the Wives star and her NFL fiancé. Which confuses us because the show's creator Shaunie O'Neal exclusively told us that all the ladies have signed on for another season.
We guess we will just have to wait and see if this actually happens. We can only imagine what we would see: A lot of Chad looking at himself in the mirror, Evelyn drinking wine at noon and of course, lots of boot knocking. We mean, we saw that after their first date. God only knows what we would see now.
