The fallout from Chad Johnson's domestic abuse arrest continues. Brian Stelter at the New York Times reports that VH1 has shelved a reality show the channel had filmed over the past several months titled Ev & Ocho. The show chronicled the marriage of Johnson to his wife Evelyn, and was set to air its first episode on September 3rd.

According to a statement from the network, there are no longer any plans to air the show.

Evelyn Johnson herself was already something of a reality TV star after her role on Basketball Wives, where she starred thanks to having been married to NBA forward Antoine Walker. Chad Johnson was formerly a contestant on Dancing with the Stars.
