Tony Gonzalez's wife October Gonzalez is engaged in a battle for one of the most coveted chairs in all the gossip land. I'm talking about an open seat in the daily congress of diverse women-- The View! Apparently "the latino seat" is open for casting, and October is actually battling against Tony Gonzalez's ex-girlfriend Lauren Sanchez (and the mother of one of Tony's children). Doesn't that strike you as weird? Like, is Tony Gonzalez some kind of Latin women's oracle for television? He only attracts the most broadly-appealing Latina's for daytime television, apparently.
Well, it's going to be a rough ride for Tony's wife October because Lauren has already co-hosted an episode and has been in the running for the spot for quite awhile. At least that's what TMZ Sports was told when they reported on the story a few days ago. It doesn't seem like something you can really nail down with numbers. It must be that the studio does tests with various combinations of cast members and then asks people what they think. Like, "Hey folks, do you like the way October banters with Whoopi more than the way Lauren takes pot-shots at Barbara?" Being a television producer must be really interesting in this respect.
October Gonzalez is not afraid of the media spotlight. When we last took a look at Tony Gonzalez's wife, she was in the middle of a wildly successful PETA campaign that certainly had people around the Shield talking.
Tony Gonzalez's ex girlfriend Lauren Sanchez is a media veteran herself. The host of Fox 11 LA, and Good Day LA also has experience on a national stage as the weekend Co-Host for Extra. In 2013, Sanchez summited Kilimanjaro which is an amazing feat, only matched by the fact that she's a licensed pilot. I mean, come on - Latina or not, she's already 10 times more interesting than anyone else on The View.
A quick shout about Tony Gonzalez, who might be the best tight end the NFL has ever had. He has the record for most touchdowns by a tight end, most yards by a tight end, and was a 14-time Pro Bowler. So yeah, he had a good career, and now he's just another former pro in a suit, blabbing about football for NFL Today. His wife October has the chance to eclipse him-- come on October! You can do it! So rarely does this kind of opportunity come along where an athlete's wife genuinely has a chance to become more popular and well-known than her husband.
And so it should come as no surprise that the woman formerly identified as Roddy White's girlfriend Stacey Hott would expect Roddy to cough up some change to take care of their child. While their relationship didn't really work out, the two did have a child together, and a child support negotiation took place. White filed papers in December, 2011 acknowledging paternity to the child, but was not prepared to pay the full amount Hott demanded in her court request.
in December, 2011, Hott filed legal documents against White to request child support stating that White "is a professional athlete capable of providing generous support for the minor child commensurate with his earnings.' In February, 2012, the support suit was settled for $3,200 a month, as well as White paying for Hott's legal fees and taking out a significant life insurance policy naming their son as the beneficiary.
Stacey Hott has been working for a national bank chain in Atlanta since 2006 and originally hails from San Leandro, California. While she's probably doing pretty well for herself, White is also making roughly $695,000 a month (back of the napkin math based on his 6 year $50M deal - and yes I know all about guaranteed, incentives, and bonuses), so $3,200 seems like a very conservative support figure. I guess you can hand it to Hott for not chasing every cent, and simply ensuring her son is provided for.
When doing "research" on Asante Samuel's wife Jeniva Barrett I stumbled onto (ok, maybe I stalked) her facebook page and came across an interesting tidbit. Mrs. Samuel, Jeniva is friends with someone name Suge Knight. After immediately clicking on his page to see if it was the Suge Knight I was saddened to learn it was not the one and only Suge Knight, but another one and only Suge Knight who had nothing to do with TuPac's murder (allegedly). Seriously though can you image having that name. What type of street cred do you think comes with having the name Suge Knight? I want to friend the guy just to have him on my list of friends.
What were we talking about? Oh yeah, Asante - almost picked off the game clincher from Eli in 42 - Samuel and his wife Jeniva. Asante and Jeniva were married in 2012, most likely during the spring/summer when Asante wasn't playing. The now corner for the Atlanta Falcons has four kids although we are not positive they are all with Jeniva (but we believe that to be the case). The earliest picture we have of the couple goes back to 2009 but we think they have been together a lot longer than that.
For those that did not know Asante has a record company called Deepside Entertainment. If you don't think this label is going somewhere then my friend you have not seen this video.
