Peyton Manning’s wife Ashley Manning is a fascinating exploration into how stories can manifest on the internet. Two years ago, it was doom and gloom for the the Manning family, with rumors swirling about an out of marriage relationship coming between them, and that Peyton Manning’s divorce was imminent. Fast forward two years later, the repeat Super Bowl runner up QB appears as happy as ever in wedded bliss. Peyton Manning, wife Ashley Manning, son Marshall and daughter Mosley Manning are running strong and have nothing coming between them.
In a very meta sort of way, we can actually look at what the Internet has taught us for the good and the bad. Peyton Manning’s wife Ashley Manning is one of the first wives we ever covered on PlayerWives.com back in 2009. In the six-plus years since launching the post, we’ve seen rumors galore. An unfounded rumor about Peyton being in an extramarital relationship with local Indianapolis meteorologist Angela Buchman ran rampant for a good chunk of his time with the Colts.
Conversely, back in 2011, we learned through the Internet about the Manning’s children. The Marion County Health Department confirmed that Peyton Manning’s wife Ashley Manning gave birth to a beautiful set of twins. According to birth certificates on file, Peyton Manning’s twins, Marshall Williams Manning and Mosley Thompson Manning, were born on March 31, 2011.
Peyton Manning was introduced to his wife by Ashley’s next door neighbor during their Freshman year of college. They were married on St. Patrick’s day, 2001.
Now, we’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again now. It is not the agenda of Playerwives to start rumors. We have, however, come across some widely passed rumors in our years, and thought worth passing along this gem (which is more than more than likely to be false).
There have been a lot of theories and rumors to support the idea that there are many “open marriages” amongst the ranks of professional athletes. And as has been the case so often, we have found rumors (again, I’ll repeat rumors) that suggest that Peyton Manning is cheating on his wife Ashley Manning and is dating local Indianapolis meteorologist Angela Buchman. The theory goes on to say that the Mannings heard about this rumor online and in an effort to throw people off the scent, have invited Ms. Buchman to multiple Manning charity events and public appearances. The rumor continues that Buchman is on the Manning payroll to keep quiet.
