Odell Beckham's Girlfriend Sophie Campise


Odell Beckham's girlfriend Sophie Campise is a sweet, young globetrotting beauty with a love for her mangy but snuggable dog Roo. Sophie really does have a striking face, and I'd be shocked if she hasn't done some professional modeling, but she was a serious athletic competitor in the good old sport of soccer.

Sophie attended Ursuline Academy in Dallas, Texas and was named an All-American Academic (whatever that is). Sophie was a freshman at the University of Texas in 2009, which at first I thought meant she must have met Odell after graduating around 2012 or 2013 (sometimes if you work your ass off in college you can do a three-year graduation. This is not the case, however, since Odell Beckham's girlfriend Sophie Campise has been with him since at least July of 2012-- when the first known photograph of him shows up in her Instagram account. She was still in college when they were dating, so I'm very curious how they met. Maybe she was just a friend of a friend of a friend or something. Also, it should be noted that Sophie transferred to the University of Alabama midway through her college career.

Sophie was a solid midfield starter from 2012 to 2013 at Alabama, and she graduated in 2013. That means she's been independent from school for less than two years. Since her hometown is Dallas, she frequently goes to all kinds of Texas-type activities like the Austin City Limits music festival. But by far the most impressive stuff she's posted on the net is her travel photos. This has included wrestling a baby tiger, visiting hyper-exotic places like Bali, hot springs in Singaraja, and some beautiful place called Seminyak. We've got to keep in mind that our girl is still only about 23 years old here. She's having one hell of a life so far. Of course, she's also making plenty of trips to New York City to see Odell play for the Giants. That's certainly a priority.

Lawrence Taylor's Wife Lynette Taylor


Lawrence Taylor's wife Lynette Taylor had candid comments regarding LT's crime of seeing an underage prostitute. She said he is "a horny guy who did some dumb stuff." Man, NFL players get off so light for crazy stuff! Like, if that had been the CEO of some company, the wife would be long gone and the guy would be a societal pariah. Lynette Taylor isn't going anywhere, it seems. There was an article written for a publication called Capital that described the reaction of Lawrence Taylor and Lynette to of the documentary "LT: The Life & Times." He apparently cried during the screening of the film, and Lynette was sitting next to him.

In the documentary, Lawrence Taylor's wife was filmed at the wedding ceremony of one of LT's daughters, and she said "I was sitting there saying, 'What's eating at him? What regret is he having?'" This was in reference to his crying (again) while watching his daughter getting married. Apparently LT had a mix of pride and remorse. Lawrence had a few wives before Lynette, and he is honest about how bad of a husband he was. One of them in the documentary essentially said that his ego and his wild ways made it impossible to live with him.

In regards to the underage girl, Lynette was on Larry King back in 2010 and claimed that the story got a little mixed up. The girl had been brought to the town where LT was staying for an autograph signing by a pimp, and she had climbed into the window of his room, and LT gave her 300 dollars to try to help her out because she was going through some tough times. Who really knows what went down in there at all. I'm not really that interested in knowing either, since it's possibly none too wholesome.

Shaun O'Hara's Wife Amy O'Hara


Shaun O'Hara's wife Amy O'Hara was married to him on the tiny island of Anguilla, east of Puerto Rico. These types of weddings are generally pretty cool since the hot weather instills a more laid back vibe than you'd get in a stuffy, churchy affair. In general, outdoor weddings are pretty snazzy. I've seen the wedding photos from 2009 and it looks like it was a really lovely ceremony. Amy looks like she was having a great time. Of course, all the Giants were there, sweating in their thin white shirts.

A year before the wedding, Amy surprised Shaun with a surprise birthday party at a place called Retreat in New York City. According to Yelp, the place closed down a few years back, but I'm sure it was yet another good time. There's a picture of Shaun kind of cradling Amy at the party, and it makes you think that as far as protection goes for girlfriends, you can't do much better than an NFL center. Mr. O'Hara is a large fellow-- around 6'3" and over 300 pounds. In attendance at Shaun's birthday party was teammate and buddy Eli Manning with his wife Abby. Abby looks strikingly similar to Amy. In fact, I think a lot of people would have trouble telling them apart if they just met them. The two ladies were present while Shaun got to blow out his candles on a cake with a picture of some football player wearing number 43 (not Shaun's number). It was probably an inside joke of some sort. Anyway, Amy looks like she was having a ball.

Amy was a nurse when she met Shaun in 2004. He had some kind of leg infection and was sent to the hospital to have surgery, and Amy was one of the ladies who was taking care of him. I'm pretty sure she's not a nurse any more, and I don't really blame her as it's a tough job.
