Rob Konrad's wife Tammy Konrad is breathing plenty of sighs of relief now that big Rob is back from his perilous journey. As the media has been reporting on, it was a full 16 hour swim from his auto-piloted boat to the nearest land. Apparently he simply fell off the boat and had to start swimming in order to keep his body temperature up. There was no way to get back on his boat once he was off. What a bummer that must have been!
Konrad's wife Tammy made the statement that he "had two angels on his back," referring to their two daughters who are 8 and 10 years old. She accompanied him at the hospital once he finally arrived on land and paramedics were called. She was able to hear the story of what happened shortly after, and there's no doubt that she's amazed by the tale and thankful for the big fella's return. Apparently Rob was bitten by a bunch of different things during the swim, and a shark of some kind circled him for a brief period. That's got to be a terrifying feeling. Sharks do tend to swim a bit better than humans. I guess you'd have to block it out completely and say, "hey, if he gets me than fine, but I've got to keep going." Then again, I have little experience in 27-mile ocean swims.
I wonder now if the Dolphins organization will send him a fruit basket or something. Rob Konrad's wife Tammy Konrad has been busy working at different places after Rob's career in the NFL ended around 2005. He's now a financial advisor, and she's worked at places like GNC and is now the manager for Compass Square Capital Management, which is in fact Rob's company that was registered in January of 2014. I wonder if their new plan is to invest in life preserver technology?

Those of you fantasy footballers out there (there are more than a handful) looking for a possible first receiver pick might've taken a chance and chosen this guy, but his lady is off limits. Mike Wallace's girlfriend Vanessa Cole is a former model turned realtor and the mother of Wallace's three-year old daughter Malihh.
Mike's girlfriend Vanessa attended some of his games at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, but now that he's just signed a fat contract for 60 million bucks, she'll be relocating to Miami and the new house that Wallace bought after signing. She'll likely be looking for a new realtor job in Miami (she previously worked in Houston). I've heard Miami is a pretty intense real estate market despite the ocean levels rising and flooding parts of the city regularly. Vanessa also has taken a liking for the music of Sam Smith, attending one of his shows in May and posting about how excited she was to see him. I wonder what Vanessa thought of her boyfriend's ignorant comments about homosexuals: "All these beautiful women in the world and guys wanna mess with other guys SMH." Apparently Mr. Wallace has never heard of genetics?
Vanessa Cole comes from quite the family. Her first cousins is R&B singer Keyshia Cole, who was formerly married to NBA journeyman Boobie Gibson. Her uncle is designer Kenneth Cole. In her own words,
I am very fortunate to be related to these wealthy people… but what can I say… I’m blessed… haha sike… yeah… I’m a tad bit goofy!! but anyways…I have so many goals that I am trying to accomplish, but it is only a matter of time before i reach them!! I love the lord and life itself, also my parents and friends, because without them, then who would I be?
The big news recently about Wallace was that he turned down $76 million from the Vikings to sign his $60 million contract with the Dolphins. Wallace's girlfriend Vanessa may or may not have freaked out about said decision, though I always scratch my head any time someone signs to go and live and play in Minnesota. Minneapolis is a beautiful city in the summer, but the weather up there is next-level arctic unfriendly in the winter. The other news is that Mike has been nursing a hurt hamstring the past few weeks, and he didn't play against the Buccaneers but should be good to go for their next game on Saturday.

Richie Incognito is a jerk.
Richie Incognito is a racist.
Richie Incognito is a bully.
Richie Incognito is a scourge on society and is threatening the American way of life as we know it.
By now we've heard it all about Richie Incognito (ok, maybe that last one is a stretch),... but let's turn to the woman once known as Richie Incognito's girlfriend, Madison Yates, who tells a different story:
“Richie was nothing but kind to me and a great friend,”
Madison Yates uttered the somewhat surprising descriptor that to Gossip Extra before finishing with: “I have not further comment.” Yates and Incognito recently split after being together for a few years. According to Gossip Extra, the two originally began dating when Incognito was playing with the Rams, and continued into his days in Miami. The couple has recently split, and while they originally reported it was due to Richie's abrasive and disagreeable personality, Yates made it clear via email to them that this was not the case. Though the two are no longer together, rumor has it that Yates continues working in Fort Lauderdale as a nightclub waitress.
It will be interesting to see how many other girlfriends come out of the works in future days to side with or against Yates. We'll keep an eye out on this one as it develops.
