(AP) — For Chad Johnson, a weekend confrontation with his wife has led to repercussions beyond a misdemeanor charge and NFL unemployment.
VH1 pulled the series ”Ev and Ocho” from its schedule, citing ”the seriousness of the allegations” against Johnson. The network said Monday it had no plans to air the show.
The Dolphins terminated Johnson’s contract Sunday night, about 24 hours after he was arrested in a domestic battery case involving his wife, Evelyn Lozada, who is on the reality TV show ”Basketball Wives.”
Jacksonville Jaguars first-round draft pick Justin Blackmon pleaded guilty Tuesday to drunken driving in Oklahoma last month and was given a sentence that includes no jail time for the former Oklahoma State star.
”He is mortified by this,” defense attorney Cheryl Ramsey said shortly after she withdrew Blackmon’s previous not guilty plea to a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence and entered the guilty plea as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors. Blackmon did not attend the brief hearing in Payne County District Court.
”He has apologized to the NFL commissioner. He apologized to the Jacksonville Jaguars. It will not happen again,” Ramsey said.
Former NFL player Terrell Owens could face jail time for missing an important court date and being late on child support. Apparently Terrell missed his child support hearing at the Fulton County Courtroom on Thursday in Atlanta and has completely pissed Judge John Goger off. not only is the judge pissed but Melanie Smith, the mother of his 7-year-old daughter, says T.O. is $20,000 behind on child support payments. Ouch!!
T.O.’s case was reset for July 19 and he could face jail time if he misses that one.
The Fashion Reporter herself, Priscilla Monteiro hosted a very stylist NBA Draft event presented by Porsche Design held at their Flagship Store in SoHo, NYC.

NFL coaches put in such insane hours that it’s probably not much of a stretch to say that, for most guys, there are two things in their life: family and football. Things are not going well for Sean Payton on either front.
The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that Payton, already suspended by the NFL for a year, has filed for divorce from his wife.
Here’s a little piece we like to call, Rockin’ the runway. Sponsored by Audi of America, Peroni and Ciroc Vodka whose cocktail was featured on the runway by Justin Tryon of the NY Giants, the 5th Annual Fashion and Football Event took place on Tuesday April 24th at the very exclusive, Audi Forum showroom in New York City. Guests enjoyed an action packed fashion show featuring high-end well tailored suits by Italian designer, Eredi Pisano. What better than some of the top NFL players in the league modeling one of the top Italian fashion brands. It was an event to attend and was on just about on every photographers agenda including the infamous Richard Renda from Totally Cool who provided these amazing shots.
In the 2011 NFC championship game, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith threw nine passes to his receivers. One pass was completed — to Michael Crabtree — for 3 yards. To his tight ends and running backs, Smith went 11-of-17 for 193 yards and two touchdowns. For a team that went 13-3 in the regular season and came very close to the Super Bowl, the 49ers had one glaring need coming into the offseason. They had to upgrade their receiver corps to bridge that small gap between them and the big dance.
On Monday, the 49ers made a move that may prove to be a stop in the right direction, agreeing to terms with Randy Moss on a one-year deal after a tryout. According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, Moss arrived in the Bay Area on Sunday night and spent Monday running the route tree with head coach Jim Harbaugh throwing him passes for about 15 minutes at the team’s practice facility. Before that workout, Moss passed a physical at Stanford University.
Moss had recently gone through a tryout with the New Orleans Saints, reportedly blowing people away with 4.4 speed. But Moss didn’t play at all in 2011 after a dismal 2010 season in which he played for three different teams (the New England Patriots, Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans) and caught just 28 passes for 393 yards and five touchdowns.
