Wedding bells are ringing for another "Basketball Wife."
This time around the center of attention is Puerto Rican stunner Evelyn Lozada and her man, NFL’s wide receiver Chad Ochocinco.
Cable TV is getting ready to chronicle another sports-related celebrity wedding, as Ochocinco and Lozada prepare to tie the knot.
But, before they call down the aisle, Ochocinco, whose real name is Chad Johnson, says he plans to legally change his last name back to Johnson.
TMZ recently reported that the football star said he doesn't want Lozada to have a false last name.
VH1 said Monday that its eight-part series "Ev and Ocho" will air starting in September, culminating in a two-episode finale with their wedding.
It should sound familiar: The E! Entertainment network scored its best ratings ever last fall by showing Kim Kardashian's wedding to NBA player Kris Humphries. The marriage lasted 72 days.
Lozada has been featured in four seasons of "Basketball Wives," beginning with the end of her engagement to basketball player Antoine Walker before she moved on to Ochocinco.
Let’s hope the marriage lasts longer than Kardashian and Humphries 72-day rendezvous.
Kim K isn’t the only A-list celeb whose marriage fizzled.
Besides Jennifer Lopez’s short-lived union to Ojani Noa, Chris Judd, and Marc Anthony, there is Mariah Carey and Tommy Mottola, Luis Miguel and Aracely Arambula, Eva Longoria and Tony Parker, Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman, Luis Fonsi and Adamari Lopez, Sara Maldonado and Billy Rozvar, and last but certainly not least George Lopez and Ann Serrano.
Despite Kim K’s marriage crumbling, the sexy entrepenuer can draw hope from the examples of other celebrities with lasting “I do's,” such as Paulina Rubio and Nicolás Colate Vallejo-Najera, Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault (minus the baby super-model-momma-drama on the side of course), Charytín and her husband Elin Ortiz, and Gloria and Emilio Estefan (she claims he was her first and only boyfriend… oh boy!).
