Chad Johnson a.k.a. the NFL Star Formerly Known As Chad Ochocinco, was arrested Saturday night after he allegedly head-butted his new wife. Chad just married "Basketball Wives" star Evelyn Lozada on the 4th of July. But on Saturday night, they got into an argument in their driveway after Evelyn found a receipt for condoms in Chad's car. Evelyn says Chad head-butted her, but Chad claims they just both bent over at the same time and knocked heads, "Three Stooges"-style. Lozada was treated for what a police spokesman called a "pretty good-sized" laceration. According to the police report, after Chad head-butted Evelyn, he screamed, "I don't give a f***! I don't give a f*** about my career!" Evelyn then fled to a neighbor's house and called the cops. When Chad spoke to police, he first told them that she head-butted him. The Miami Dolphins aren't waiting around for the legal system to figure out whose idea the head-butt was. They cut Chad last night, before he even had a chance to play a regular season game with them. Chad was picked up by the Miami Dolphins during the off-season, after the New England Patriots got rid of him. He had the worst season of his career last year with New England. Chad and Evelyn are currently filming a reality show for VH1 called "Ev and Ocho". They both have also already appeared on the new season of HBO's"Hard Knocks", which focuses not on head-butting, but on the Dolphins training camp. Chad was released yesterday morning after posting $2,500 bail. He did not speak to reporters on his way out.
Oprah Winfrey's interview with Rihanna airs next Sunday night, but here's a preview. Rihanna broke down and cried while discussing her assault at the hands of Chris Brown. She said, "It was embarrassing. It was humiliating. I lost my best friend." Talking post-split, she added, "I was resentful. I held a grudge. I was dark." There's no word if she goes into detail about what their relationship is like now. So what was Oprah's take-away from the Interview? She expected Rihanna to be harder. Oprah says, "I thought she would have been kind of a bad-ass kind of a rocker hard-edge woman, nothing could have been farther from the truth. She was thoughtful. She was very emotional. She was vulnerable. She pushes the edge a lot, and there's a reason for that." They have since reconciled, both personally and professionally; a source told Us Weekly they hooked up "on-and-off" for nearly a year in 2011, and the two collaborated on two remixes in early 2012. Oprah's "Next Chapter" airs Sunday, August 19 at 9pm on OWN.

Michael said, "I have traveled the world through swimming, but really haven’t had an opportunity to experience the world through my travels. As I enter this next chapter of my life, I think I will be able to shift my competitiveness to anything I put my mind to and golf is one of the things I want to focus on."
