New Orleans Saints Wives and Girlfriends (WAGS)


Sean Payton's girlfriend Skylene Montgomery

Sean Payton's girlfriend Skylene Montgomery was recently spotted with him at the ACM Awards. It's always weird to me that they called it the "Academy" of Country Music. Like, okay we went from the original Academy in ancient Greece with Aristotle and Socrates and Plato as members to having an Academy for country music. It would be pretty awesome if the members of the ACM are really distinguished intellectuals and scholars.

So what we do know about Sean Payton's girlfriend is that she was the 2008 Miss West Virginia, and she immediately parlayed her Miss WV title into dating Kenny Chesney back in 2008. She's obviously hot, but she also runs a fitness day camp for kids (or at least she used to back in 2008 when that aspect of her life was reported on). There's a bit of a pattern between Sean and Kenny as their dating Skylene goes-- both were rebounding recently off of long-term relationships. Back in 2008, Kenny was coming off a long relationship with a girl named Allison Stewart, and now Sean Payton is coming off a divorce in which his ex-wife took half. Sometimes you need to just date a West Virginian beauty queen.

The one consistent aspect of Skylene Montgomery that we can tell you about is her love of fitness. In particular, she loves to run. This keeps her looking slim and nice. Much of her social media presence is devoted to looking good and how to work out and how to eat right. It's standard fare for beautiful women who have made careers out of their looks. In Skylene's case, I like that she helped kids to stay fit. She still might maintain that business, and she certainly seems to know a lot about it-- her Pinterest account is littered with information about proper techniques and tips. She may want to write her own tips about how to score rebounding famous dudes.


Steve Gleason's Wife Michel Gleason

Steve Gleason's wife Michel Gleason has traveled to many an exotic locale with Steve. Their recent trips include sojourns to New Zealand, a trip to Sydney Australia, and a stop off in Thailand. Steve of course brought a book about the making of The Lord of The Rings movie so that he could look for spots they used in the film while they were hiking. Their trips included a nice scenic shot of the Sydney Opera house and Michel taking a photo of Steve next to a sign for Australia's Longest Straight Road (90 miles without a turn).

Steve and wife Michel are also the proud parents of Rivers, who Michel called a "6 lb. version of Steve-O." The couple had been trying to have a baby for awhile when Steve was diagnosed with ALS. They did not meet in college, however, as Steve attended Washington State and Michel is a graduate of the University of Colorado. They currently reside in New Orleans, and Steve is doing all he can to combat his ALS. This battle was featured on a short documentary episode called A Football Life, and the episode came out in 2013.

At one point back in 2012, Steve was being filmed to document his life with ALS and his looking forward to a son, but the filmmaker, Sean Pamphilon, captured some audio of the New Orleans Saints defensive coach Gregg Williams apparently encouraging Saints players to injure opposing 49ers players in an upcoming playoffs game. The scandal was called "Bountygate." Steve was apparently peeved about the release of the tape because he said he never authorized it. I wonder what Steve's wife Michel thought about the whole thing-- probably not much. Steve himself had nothing to do with it other than the fact that he was being filmed for something else entirely.

Pierre Thomas' Girlfriend Candace Damiani

Pierre Thomas' ex-girlfriend Candace Damiani has pretty poor taste. She was originally got some z-list attention on for using the n-word on Twitter. Come on Candace, are you really that starved for attention? According to the Global Phenomz youtube channel, yes she is. Allow me to explain...

Candace is in a few videos on Youtube, and they are duller than dull. One of them is some sort of informational video where she talks about modeling and acting. It's three minutes and 4 seconds, and she says nothing at all. Her mouth is moving, there are words coming out, but all meaning is lost. While she talks about nothing, we watch her blow bubbles from a bubble bath and smoke an e-cigarette. I think we're supposed to believe this is from modeling shoots. She talks about her agent pushing her to be better, and the last thing she says is "everything's temporary." Classic.

The video of Pierre's ex-girlfriend Candace was shared by something called Global Phenomz, which I guess is some kind of agency or something. So if you go on the Global Phenomz Youtube channel, there's a few other videos uploaded with her in them. One such video is Candace sitting in a room with a guy and "interviewing" a crappy rapper that nobody cares about. Candace might even be dating the guy because he says he wants to make a sex tape with her. Vague, trite, nonsensical conversation. The rapper conveys a tale where he falls on the ground, and Candace pipes in with her only comment that "If you were with me, I would have kept walking because I've got to represent the team as best I can." I think the major problem here is that Damiani thinks she is a firecracker and someone that has a large personality, and she is in fact the opposite. Pierre Thomas probably lost interest very quickly.
