Chad Johnson: The Ultimate Head-butt

This weekend Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson (aka Chad Ochocinco) was arrested for allegedly head-butting his wife after she confronted him about a receipt for a box of condoms. As a result of this infraction VH1 has announced that it is cancelling its new reality series Eve and Ocho, which was going to follow the lives of the couple. The dozens and dozens of fans of Chad's other series "The Ultimate Catch" (his Flava Flav knock off dating show) have to be very disappointed. Ochocinco claims that his wife head-butted him, that he was not the aggressor, but either way a domestic violence charge will very likely kill his career in reality "romance" television. The world is mourning the loss of "Eve and Ocho" before it even started, not to mention Ultimate Catch reruns.

If we're lucky, he'll catch on with the next series of the Surreal World, where troubled celebrities gather and live under the same roof. Being embroiled in controversy will not necessarily kill his career as a reality television star, just romance based reality television. He can no longer be considered the "ultimate catch", as he slowly drifts into the Mel Gibson zone.

  1. I hope people also learn just how expendable NFL players are. Johnson's on-field production has diminished over the last couple of seasons. He was already on the bubble with the Dolphins and this off-field allegation was just enough to tip the scales and make a fast, cold but rationale business decision.

    There are no friends in business and the NFL is the biggest sports business there is.
