Chad Johnson works out on “Hard Knocks,” Tattoo’s Evelyn Lozada’s face on his leg [photo]

At a certain point, you have to handle matters in house. I think we’ve reached that point with Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada. In a span of five days we’ve gone from Lozada tearfully appearing on Nightline, expressing love for ex-Ocho to him going BACK on Hard Knocks and debuting a new tattoo featuring Evelyn’s face on his Twitter avi.

 On Hard Knocks, Chad basically wanted a forum to show he was working out hard and that he wants another shot in the NFL. He had this to say about the incident:

“I f–ked everything up,” Johnson said. “I’m sure some opinions, some views of me, might have changed because of events that have happened. But all I can do is say sorry. I’m human. I’ve just got to come back and live strong. . . . Somewhere along the way I lost focus. I lost something I love — I lost two things I love — because of my immature actions. I’m going to get both of those things back, one step at a time.”

THEN, he took to Twitter this evening, having a conversation with his mother- mama Ocho is ride-or-die, warming up the car- and a fan. Chad indicated that divorce wasn’t an option, that he was fighting for his wife.

Ummmm Chad… hire a publicist Sir. This is NOT the best way to handle things. I’m not opposed to a married couple working things out. “For better or worse,” those are the vows you swore to honor. But it’s time to handle this in private.
