Tiki Barber appeared with girlfriend Traci Johnson on Entertainment Tonight this week in an apparent attempt to explain their actions in the aftermath of Barber leaving his current wife of 11 years.
(ATTN Homewreckette: Pipe down and stay in your lane.)
During the appearance, Barber maintained that he was completely innocent of an extramarital affair: “We were only friends when I was still married. I was separated, out of my house so it wasn’t until then that we took things to the next level.”
Barber might want to let his current wife Ginny in on that privileged information since the state of New York still has the couple as legally married.
Johnson: “Tiki and I were romantically involved when he was separated, and plenty of people who are separated have boyfriends and girlfriends.”
Plenty of men are romantically involved while their current wife is eight months pregnant with twins?
(Happens all the time!)
Barber: “My goal is to not have the kids suffer because of the failings of mine and my soon to be ex-wife. Marriages dissolve. It happens! I’m just a normal guy who had a job that people cared about, and maybe there is a standard to live up to that but it’s a hard one, for anyone.”
Since he doesn’t want the kids to “suffer“, Barber made sure he did an interview on national television with his girlfriend - while still married - in order to note the “failings of my soon to be ex-wife.”
Barber evidently can’t wait to then play that interview tape back for his kids as soon as they’re old enough to know what’s going on in order to mitigate their emotional trauma.
