Famous people don't just get divorced. They have scandals. Like Tiki Barber who is leaving his wife—who is eight months pregnant (with twins)—for a blonde intern half her age. Now that's a breakup.
The former Giant running back turned TV talking guy, just announced that he was separating "amicably" from his wife, Ginny, who he met in college and has been married to for 11 years. But the New York Post helpfully pointed out to everyone that Ginny is about to give birth to the couple's third and fourth child, while Tiki has already been spotted stepping out with a "model-thin" 23-year-old who used to be an intern at NBC. You may now register your contempt.
The paper was also kind enough to dig up some of Barber's old, out-of-context quotes where he talks about being an honorable man—unlike his own father who abandoned his wife and children.
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."
In his 2007 memoir, "Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond," Barber described the example he wanted to set for his kids.
"I want to be an honorable man, because that's what I want them both to be," he wrote, noting, "My family is everything to me."
So, yeah, I guess in retrospect that sorta looks bad. But, hey, everyone in the Tom-Bridget-Gisele fiasco is still incredibly good looking and probably not addicted to drugs, so this doesn't have to necessarily be a tragedy. Follow your heart, kids.
