There’s word that Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson might be changing channels for a new reality show.
E! is ready to snap up the the “Basketball Wives” star and her NFL fiancé. TMZ.com reports that E! offered Chad and Evelyn a show as soon as rumors of her quitting “Basketball Wives” began to circulate.
Although “Basketball Wives” creator Shaunie O’Neal has said that all the ladies on the cast have signed on for another season, Evelyn hasn’t made a final decision yet. Sources told TMZ that the engaged couple is seriously mulling over the offer from E!
Supposedly the E! reality show would follow the engaged couple living the good life, but it’s not clear whether that would include any footage of them planning a wedding. Even though they got engaged just four months into their relationship, Chad has said that he’s in so rush to jump the broom, and she has echoed those sentiments.
“He has four kids. I have one,” Evelyn explained to People. “We want to be engaged for at least a year and enjoy our time with our children, and then we’re going to plan our wedding.”
Wedding planning might take a bit of negotiation between the celeb couple because their visions for the big day are very different. “I want something small, even though he wants something big,” Evelyn said. “I want something intimate. I’m 35, and we have five kids together. I don’t want anything over the top.”
But the one thing that Chad and Evelyn can agree on are kids because they want to blend and expand their family. “The more kids, the happier I am,” she said.
While warring about the size of the wedding might spell trouble for some couples, Chad’s not worried about their relationship. He said he knows his fiancée so well, there’s no way a small argument like flower arrangements or the length of the guest list would come between them.
“I know everything about her, so there are no surprises,” Chad told People. “My grandma says, ‘Always marry your best friend, because your best friend will be able to tell you anything and not hide nothing.’ That’s one of the things I really like, which is one of the reasons why she’s wearing that ring.”
And they share a lot–including the details of all their past relationships. “I’m nosy,” Chad admitted. “I want to know who you’ve been with.”
