Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn LozadaVH1 can’t get enough of Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco. The pair, who can currently be seen on Basketball Wives, is branching out. The network has green lit a new spin-off reality series called Ev and Ocho.

According to Deadline, Lozada and Ochocinco will headline the eight-episode series, which will chronicle their trip down the aisle. It’ll be followed by a two-part finale that showcases the actual ceremony.

Have we learned nothing from the Kim Kardashian debacle?

Evelyn is best known as the hot-headed diva on Basketball Wives Miami, while Ochocinco is a professional football player signed to the New England Patriots.

Over the past few years, Ochocinco’s made a name for himself in reality TV. In 2010, he appeared on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, and followed it with stints on VH1’s The T. Ocho Show and the dating competition, Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch.

Both Lozada and Ochocinco are famous for their over-the-top antics, which equals ratings gold for VH1. On Basketball Wives, the couple’s gone through their fair share of ups and downs, including issues of trust and infidelity.

Lozada recently told ABC News Radio (via Vibe Vixen) that Ev and Ocho keeps it raw and real.

“I don’t think you’re always going to see us so in love,” she said. “We’re really in a real relationship just like anyone else…You know, we’re very open and honest with each other and you’re going to see a lot of that. I don’t think you’re always going to see us so in love.”

Ev and Ocho premieres this September.
