Worst Proposal Ever? Evelyn Lozada Reveals How Chad Ochocinco Asked
The 'Basketball Wives' star gives details of their special moment
We all watched 'Basketball Wives' star Evelyn Lozada as she met, fell in love with, got engaged to, and planned her wedding to Chad Ochocinco. However, unlike fellow reality star Kim Kardashian's much-publicized proposal episode, what the cameras never caught with Evelyn and Chad was the moment he asked her to marry him.
And that could be because there never was one. Evelyn sat down with V-103 radio host Egypt to talk her new (and ex) fiance.
Evelyn, how did Chad propose to you?
I wish I had a really romantic story to tell you, but it’s not so romantic. A jeweler came to the house, had a few rings, he had my ring in a separate box. I, of course, chose that one. [Chad] had a headset on and he was like, ‘You like it?’ and I was like, 'Yep' and I put it on and he goes, 'Okay cool,' and he started playing Call of Duty.

So he never actually said 'Will you marry me'?
Me and Chad really became friends. And we have controversial conversations as you’ve seen on Basketball Wives. We talk about everything. I mean he knows everything about me that even some of my best friends don’t know. And that was cool to me. We shared stories. We became cool, cool friends and then other things happened. No. [He] never did the one knee. Never did anything like that. And I was like okay, well I guess we’re engaged. But you know what? I was with somebody for ten years, was engaged twice in that relationship. I’m like, alright, whatever, I had all that, you know? Maybe this way it’ll work.
Has your ex Antoine Walker, the one that never made it down the aisle with you, called like, ‘I just want to get back together again. Can we try?’
I will say this, when he found out that I was engaged, he did call and he wasn’t very happy. You know, 'Oh, you’re marrying him?!' It was that type of thing. Listen, we were together a decade. Six, seven months later I’m engaged and then I’m engaged to Chad. I think if I was in his position I would probably feel the same.
