The latest trend for tabloid heart-throbs and Mensa failures is the short marriage for reality TV athletes of football and basketball.
Today in court is Kris Humphries, the man formerly of the divorced New Jersey Nets that have taken up with Brooklyn. His reality star wife of a few months, Kim Kardashian, can hardly wait to split the royalty check for the last time.
Now the wife of the former Chad Ochocinco, Evelyn Lozada has filed for divorce from his "irretrievably" dissolved nuptial-kick-to-the-head marriage. Their reality show Ev and Ocho, never seen, is now an orphan of the storm.
Miss Lozada, soon to be an ex-football wife, is star of Basketball Wives, though she never married one, but simply took up Antoine Walker's credit cards for a few months.
Mrs. Ochocinco/Johnson actually endured two names over the course of her 40 day marriage from her split personality husband who changed his name half-way through their month-long honeymoon.
Whether athletes like Ochocinco and Humphries ever have successful careers on the stage of professional sports is doubtful, but they have made a name for themselves as rent-a-hubby, boy-toys.
In the works may likely come the new reality show, The Newest Odd Couple, when two second-rate, freshly divorced young athletes becomes roommates-and find themselves head-butting each other every night and fighting over whose clear nail polish is missing.
We think gay friendly Logo Network may pick up Ocho and the Hump as their crossover hit of the season as Johnson and Humphries toss their respective balls around a shared apartment.
