Tiki Barber leaves his pregnant (with twins!) wife for a super-young NBC intern. How awesome is THAT?
Jesus wept. Here we go AGAIN. I love how these men are scaring the ever-lovin' crap out of women all over America. Here's our latest example: Former football star-current NBC Today Show correspondent, Tiki Barber has left his wife, (who is pregnant with twins, have two sons together and have been married for 11 years) for a 23 year old NBC intern.
"Ex-Giants superstar Tiki Barber has dumped his 8-months-pregnant wife, Ginny, for sexy former NBC intern Traci Lynn Johnson, sources told The Post last night.
The football star-turned-"Today" show-correspondent left his wife of 11 years, Ginny, for the 23-year-old blonde, who also worked at 30 Rock, the sources said.
Ginny, who is expecting twins, found out about the relationship late last year, after the run-around running back moved out of their Upper East Side home.
Johnson, a model-thin bombshell, was photographed sitting next to Tiki last month at a Washington, DC, screening of a documentary on Senegal that he hosted for the Travel Channel. Sources believe Johnson also accompanied Tiki to Senegal for the filming late last year, when Ginny was three months pregnant.
The affair is particularly stunning in light of Barber's long-standing disdain for his philandering father.
"I don't give a [bleep] that the relationship didn't work," he said of his parents' split in a 2004 Post interview. "Not only did he abandon her, I felt like he abandoned us for a lot of our lives. I have a hard time forgiving that."
Barber's confidants were shocked.
"He was always the nice guy with a million-dollar smile," a Barber family friend told The Post."
I realize the men I'm referring to are ego-driven celebrities, but with the bombardment of media coverage (blogger coverage--guilty as charged), it's impossible to NOT feel something in your own heart and brain about one's own relationship. It's certainly an insecurity issue on MY part, because my husband could NOT be more wonderful, supportive and loving. But we all must hear that awful, nagging little voice in our brains..."maybe you're NEXT!". I'm actually ashamed and embarrassed to admit it, but there you have it.
