Chad Ochocinco is soon to be married to his fiancee Evelyn. And yet, they’re both apparently worried about his ability to remain committed to her and only her once they’re married. On “Basketball Wives” (Mon., 8 p.m. EST on VH1), Evelyn tried to explain to Chad that she’d rather he be honest with her if he’s not able to control himself with other women.
She made it pretty clear that she’d rather he didn’t sleep around on her, but seemed resigned to the fact that he can’t simply make this guarantee to her. “Being able to commit to one individual over a long period of time is going to be new to me; is new to me,” Chad said. He went on to say that he’s trying to while on the road, but apparently the temptation is just too strong sometimes.
When he realized that Evelyn was essentially giving him permission to cheat on her, so long as he wears a condom and comes clean to her, there was a mixture of shock and confusion evident in his eyes. After she finished, he waited a respectful few beats before agreeing to her terms.
She won’t be happy about it. But, “What can I do but respect you and know that you’re telling me the truth, rather than hide it,” she said. “‘Cause at the end of the day, you don’t have to tell me nothing.” So Chad has the option of staying faithful and making his wife happy, or cheating on her and her begrudgingly accepting it. Of course, she says she’ll be okay with it now, but her feelings could change when the wedding day gets closer, or even beyond it.
