    Evelyn Lozada: The wedding is still on

    The wedding is still on! Evelyn Lozada confirmed that she and Chad Ochocinco still intend to wed.

    Despite rumors that she brought their wedding plans to a screeching halt, Evelyn said the pair will be joined as man and wife.

    "I take marriage serious," she told HipHollwood.com. "I just want it to be very clear that, no, we’re getting married."

    Supposedly, the wedding was on hold because of Evelyn’s suspicions that Chad was cheating. So, what did she have to say about those rumors? Although she neither confirmed nor denied Chad’s infidelity, she admitted that she does have trust issues.

    "When it comes to Chad and what he does when he’s not with me, I can’t control anything that he does," Evelyn said, "As far as I’m concerned, I can’t trust as far as you walk out that door. That’s just me."

    Niecy Nash gets a new hubby

    She’s still a newlywed, but that didn’t stop Niecy Nash from giving up a few days with her hubby Jay Tucker for an episode of “Celebrity Wife Swap.”

    Niecy traded places with “Family Ties” co-star Tina Yothers who lives a more rural lifestyle—complete with roosters—than diva Niecy.

    “The only way I really want to be outside is if I’m laying up on a yacht,” said Niecy who’s balancing her home life with upcoming projects, including a new reality series.

    “The reason I decided to let a new wife come in is because I don’t know everything, and I like to think that I could learn a few things. I just hope she’s not cuter than me,” Niecy said.

    Regina King returns to ‘Southland’

    TNT’s hit drama series “Southland,” starring Regina King, returned Tuesday night, and the former “227” star visited “The Talk” to discuss her character.

    “The role really was not actually written for a Black woman,” Regina said. “It was written as a woman … who loves her job and cares about the people that she’s policing. That was attractive to me, and second of all, just the idea that these people sacrifice their lives for people they don’t know. That’s still baffling and amazing."

    In addition to starring in the critically acclaimed police drama, Regina will also serve as the Social Media Ambassador of this year’s Screen Actors Guild awards ceremony.

    “I was one of those people who talked about [social media] so bad," said Regina, who’s been on Twitter for the past six months.
