Right before former New York Giants star Michael Strahan will be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame, he and model/VH1 star Nicole Murphy have called it quits on their five-year engagement, according to People Magazine.
“They love each other very much, but with the distance and work schedule it has been hard to maintain the relationship,” his rep says.
Sports Illustrated reports,
Pam Oliver is no longer Fox’s top NFL sideline reporter. And after this coming football season, she will no longer be a sideline reporter at all.
Oliver confirmed the news to Sports Illustrated on Sunday night that she will move to the network’s No. 2 team for her 20th NFL broadcasting season. Erin Andrews (below) has been elevated to the No. 1 sideline spot, joining the team of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. Oliver’s last season working as a reporter on the NFL will be spent with the No. 2 Fox team of Kevin Burkhardt and John Lynch.
After a painful couple of months, Oliver said the disappointment of that news has subsided and that she has accepted her new professional reality. But it was a shock last April when Fox Sports executives traveled to Atlanta, where she is based, to tell her in person that she would no longer hold the job that has been her professional life for two decades. Oliver says that while she respected Fox Sports president Eric Shanks and executive vice president of production John Entz delivering the news in person, she was stunned when they initially informed her that not only was she being removed from Fox’s No. 1 NFL team, but also that she was being taken off the NFL sidelines completely in 2014.
“To go from the lead crew to no crew was a little shocking,” Oliver said. “I said I wanted to do a 20th year [on the sidelines]. I expressed to them that I was not done and had something to offer. Again, I think it was predetermined coming in. Not at that meeting, but two years ago it was determined that no matter what I did or did not do, a change would be made for this year.”
The jury wasn’t finished. They just awarded the victim another $2.7 MILLION as added punishment for Da Brat’s violent bottle assault.
A jury has already awarded ex-NFL cheerleader Shayla Stevens $3.7 million to cover her injuries that Da Brat caused by busting her in the head with a bottle inside an ATL nightclub in 2007. She 3 years in prison and has to pay a grand total of 6.4 million.
The jury found Da Brat, real name Shawntae Harris, responsible for causing Stevens’ permanent facial scarring, neurological impairment, and severe mental pain, according to TMZ.
Terrell Owens and his new wife Rachel Snider are headed to divorce court after only two weeks of marriage…she says he only loved her good credit.
The 33-year-old former Texas postal worker and Mom of one reportedly believes Owens married her for her good credit; according to Snider, Owens married her so that he could secure a loan for a $2 million home in Sherman Oaks, Calif.
Snider also says she has already moved out of their marital home and will file for divorce, telling TMZ, “I really valued his love and friendship for five years. Out of the love in my heart, I tried to help him. We had a secret relationship for five years, and I married him for love. I felt in love and now I feel betrayed and heartbroken.”
For the 40-year-old Owens, this marriage was a first for him as a Father of four. Owens was a gridiron superstar who fell from grace and landed hard on his rear end. He reportedly blew through a reported $80 million and is seemingly unemployable as an NFL player with spending habits that have resulted in bankruptcy, failed financial investments, delinquent child support payments, and foreclosure; Owens’ once-Midas touch has turned into lead in practically every financial aspect of his life.
A Houston woman who says she is pregnant with Arian Foster’s baby is taking the Texans running back to court.
Brittany Norwood, a 20-year-old University of Houston senior, says Foster has been pressuring her to get an abortion.
Norwood claims she didn’t know Foster was married with children when she had sex with him last summer. She said they were first intimate at Hotel ZaZa where Foster was staying during training camp.
Norwood said they also spent a week together in California in November while Foster was recovering from back surgery. Norwood sold photos of them together in California to TMZ.
“I truly fell in love with this person,” Norwood said.
Foster has not commented about Norwood’s claims, but he has spoken publicly about his marriage and posted photos of his daughter on social media.
Norwood said everything changed when she told Foster she was pregnant and wanted to keep the baby.
“He’s like, ‘You can’t have this, you can’t have this kid, like, we cannot bring a child into this, like, think about my kids,’” Norwood said.
She said Foster began sending text messages urging her to end the pregnancy.
“You just can’t bring a life into this world under these circumstances. It’s not fair to anyone. It’s not just about you,” read one message, according to Norwood.
