Chad Ochocinco has officially confirmed his engagement with Basketball wives Star Evelyn Lozado when he was Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning.
It looks like the Ultimate Catch is officially off the market. Reality star and Cincinnati Bengal Chad Ochocinco sat down with Ryan Seacrest this morning to confirm his engagement toBasketball Wives’ Evelyn Lozada. Rumors have been flying since earlier this month when Evelyn tweeted a picture of a 10-carat ring Ochocinco bought her. Although it looked like an engagement rock, we couldn’t be sure until today.
“Yeah, man … It’s time for me to sit down,” he said on Seacrest’s KIIS FM radio show. “Enough is enough. I’m 32, you know. My days are over. You know how you deal with this person, that person, but you can’t ever find everything in one individual? I think I found everything I’ve been looking for in one person. [She's] everything I’ve been missing.” But still, that doesn’t make her perfect. “Ain’t no such thing as perfect…” he laughed. “[But she's] close enough.” She looks pretty good to us, too. Congrats on winning the Marriage Super Bowl, 85!

Vh1's "Football Wives" Melani Ismail. Melani will talk us about How she decided to join the crew for "Football Wives" as well as how she stays grounded and focus through being a wife and a mother,and her Music Career.
Appearing alongside her Celebrity Rehab mentor, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Rache promoted her stint on the VH1 program and explained why she went on it.
"I knew that I needed help," Uchitel, who claims she went on the program to deal with her love addiction. "And I wanted to get it from Dr. Drew."
The 35-year-old all-pro mistress also said she was being treated for addiction to Ambien and other prescribtion medications, which she did not identify.
Dr. Dew said Rachel Uchitel's condition is partly triggered by traumatic events in her past, such as the premature deaths of her father and fiance Andy.
She was set to get married before he perished in the 9/11 attacks.
In her case, that knight must be married and famous.
"But it is not an excuse for anyone's behavior. You get stuck in relationships that are not right; you put a mask over somebody and pretend they’re somebody they’re not. You get disappointed when they don’t react the way you want."
Pretty much what happened with David Boreanaz.
Fortunately, "I'm a completely different person now than I was before I went on the show," Uchitel said of the "most intense" Celebrity Rehab season yet.
The show premieres Wednesday. Don't miss it.
Celebrity Rehab 4 Premieres December 1st
In this exclusive clip from his forthcoming VH1 Storytellers episode, T.I. further explains the meaning of his song "Rubber Band Man" and performs it with a full band.
Many people wondered why T.I. wore rubber bands on his wrists early in his career, and rather than explaining it repeatedly, the MC broke it down in the lyrics of the 2003 song, his first major hit.
