Chad Ochocinco and Antoine Walker's Reality Star Ex Engaged

So apparently Chad Ochocinco is about to become an honest man, and Basketball Wives' Evelyn Lozada is about to become a football wife. This is according to such reliable sources as TMZ and Twitter, and considering that Ochocinco and a reality television show are involved we don't know what to believe.

Lozada is the Head Bitch in Charge on the Shaunie O'Neal-produced VH1 reality show Basketball Wives. She's also the ex-fiancée of former Miami Heat star Antoine Walker. Apparently at some point she started dating Ochocinco, who had a short-lived VH1 reality show of his own. He signed a contract to join the cast of Basketball Wives as Lozada's new love interest even though at the time there relationship was still pretty new.

Now, they're apparently engaged. Lozada didn't make an official announcement but tweeted this picture along with the comment, "I'm no rabbit but 10 carats looks good on me!! Let the hating begin ▸▸▸▸▸▸▸ Let's go!!!!! *Wink*"

TMZ seems to think it's real, but let's be real here: Ochocinco is the man who lied about having a pet pregnant pigeon. We just simply can not believe anything the man does in genuine ever again.
