Dallas Cowboys Wives and Girlfriends (WAGS)
GD Star Rating
- It would seem that Roy Williams' girlfriend Brooke Daniels, a former Miss Texas 2009, is no longer his girlfriend. We also question how serious they ever were. Why is this? A few things here.
First, back in February of 2011, Roy Williams actually proposed to Brooke Daniels... via mail. Yup, he actually mailed her not only a video of himself proposing but also an engagement ring worth $76,000 (along with a baseball to buy off her younger brother). You know how they always tell you not to mail cash? I guess Roy Williams never learned that lesson, as I would think mailing a diamond ring is just about as good as cash. We can only hope he at least send it FedEx.
Second, according to the lawsuit, when Brooke Daniel's turned down the opportunity to a lifetime of
wondering whether her husband would have a job after yet another disappointing season luxury as Roy William's wife, she didn't return the ring. Even after he asked for it back. Brooke claimed that she lost the ring. Convenient huh? It seems that Roy was also suspicious about it and filed an insurance claim. The insurance company actually found that the ring had never been lost.
Brooke Daniels' father Michael, who is listed as a defendant in the suit, seems to be handling the press for his daughter. Michael has claimed that not only did Brooke never tell Roy that she lost the ring, but Roy actually told her he didn't want it back. Regardless of all that, Michael actually has the ring and appears willing to return it to Roy to avoid legal issues entirely. Which is good, since engagement rings fall under the conditional gift rule - and Roy Williams has an actual legal case for wanting the ring back.

04/11/2012: Looks like Tony wasn't lying to that classroom full of kids. Candice Crawford delivered the couple's first child on Monday, April 9th. The son, named Hawkins Crawford Romo weighed in at 8 pounds, 8 ounces (or as the guys on NFL Live pointed out, the Cowboys record last year).
Congratulations to Tony, Candice and Hawkins.
10/25/2011: Between traditional media outlets, and new/social media , there are more ways to break news than ever before. However, on October 25, 2011, Tony Romo found a new way to release news: announcing it to a group of school children. When a child asked if he had kids, Romo replied: “Um, no, I don’t have any kids, I’ve actually got one on the way. My wife’s pregnant.”
So there it is direct from the source. There's one way to dodge the tabloids...
05/31/2011: It's official; Tony and Candice were married Saturday at Arlington Hall in Dallas. The ceremony was attended by Cowboys family members such as Miles Austi, Troy Aikman Jason Witten, and owner Jerry Jones. With the current labor situation, we seriously doubt that work came up very much. Best of luck to the newlyweds.
05/04/2011: Tony and Candice have sent out the invites, and the two will be married on May 28, 2011, the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. The happy couple will be married at a ritzy estate that's apparently a popular Dallas wedding destination. Good luck to Tony and Candice.
12/19/2010: While most of the 2010 season has been lost for Romo and the 'Boys on the field, off the field appears to have been a success for Tony. According to various news reports, the couple got engaged Thursday, December 17th while out celebrating Candice's birthday. No wedding date has been announced.
04/29/2010: Long standing, yet unsubstantiated rumors of Romo and Crawford being together are beginning to appear more accurate. The two were spotted together in Las Vegas over the weekend. According to eye-witness reports, the two spent hours together in an exclusive high limit room.
- Tony Romo and Candice Crawford began dating shortly after Tony's romances with Jessica Simpson and Carrie Underwood fizzled out. The most accurate reports indicate that the two began dating in September, 2009. Candice has a lengthy career in beauty pageants, which culminated when she was crowned the 2008 Miss Missouri and competed in the Miss USA pageant, in which she placed in the top 10. Since then, she has been working as a reporter covering high school sports for Dallas 33TV, and hosting a weekly Cowboys show called "Special Edition." She is also the younger sister of Gossip Girl "star" Chace Crawford.
OK, finally,... is it just us, or does Tony Romo have a very specific taste in women? Take a look at the last three women he's dated: Jessica Simpson, Carrie Underwood, and Candice Crawford.

- Troy and Rhonda Aikman began dating in 1998 (more on that in a minute), and were married on April 8, 2000. Rhonda has a daughter from a previous relationship, and together Troy and Rhonda have two more daughters, born in 2001 and 2002. The couple announced their separation on January 24, 2011.
Before we say anything, I'm giving credit to The Big Lead for finding this and passing it along.
Rhonda Aikman was working as a publicist for the Cowboys when they met in 98. Apparently, she was dating someone else. We'll let Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post continue the story from there in a series of three tweets:
"Little story: I covered the #Cowboys in '98 when a certain QB's soon-to-be-ex-wife was a team PR secretary engaged to a team accountant ..."
" ... certain QB lured team PR secretary away, she gave ring back to team accountant, who then challenged QB to a fight in the parking lot ..."
"... high-ranking team official heard of planned fisticuffs and team accountant was fired. Secretary soon "retired" with a huge new ring ..."
When later asked about the validity of this story, Hubbard responded:
"Every word of it true. Saw some of it with my own eyes. The accountant literally wanted to kill the QB in question."
