(Newser) – Former New York Giant Tiki Barber not only dumped his wife for a 23-year-old—he dumped his 8-months-pregnant-with-twins wife for a 23-year-old. “After 11 years of marriage, Ginny and I have decided to separate,” Barber said yesterday, after sources told the New York Post about the affair. The Today show correspondent met Traci Lynn Johnson when he was hired by NBC in 2007; she was an intern there at the time.

Ginny, who has two sons with Barber, learned of the affair late last year when he moved out. Johnson was photographed with Barber at his documentary screening last month; sources believe she was with him during filming of it in Senegal, while his wife was three months pregnant, and she may have also been with him at the Winter Olympics.

The ho's come out of the wood work to "steal" a man with money by using sex, plain and simple and a strategy that's as old as the hills. For rich black men, blonde white women are the perfect trophy wife and, guess what? The gold digger ho's everywhere know that too and make the required adjustments. They're mostly chemical blondes and always on the look out for a willing, RICH, target of opportunity.

I am a white woman, blonde, good looking, have black men and men of all races hitting on me constantly and NO I don't date any of them. Not because I am a racist, but because I am married to a wonderful man who happens to be white. We don't lack in morals and are strong as a couple.We look at our relationship as a team effort and our marriage is nothing we take for granted. It seems loyal men and women are hard to find. I never dated a married man. Karma is a bitch! To characterize blonde women as lacking morals is just ignorant. I know many men and women of ALL races who lack morals. They are not a part of our circle of friends. Tiki is the immoral creep. Tiger is not any better. The other women are opportunists no doubt. The race card is all worn out BTW and I am proud of who I am, proud to be white and very happy I am blond(natural). I know of several men and women who cheat with people of different races. The media exploits this trend of black men and blond women but let me assure you that it's not just black on blond sex. There is plenty of black on Asian sex, white on black sex, Asian on white sex, sex, sex, sex everywhere! It seems that our society has lost its moral compass. "If it feels good, do it," seems to be the standard for so many people. What an empty existence. In the end you have to face yourself in the mirror. Do I really care what these so-called famous people do? Not really but I do care about the way white, blond women are treated in our society. I have read the blogs. They are full of hate for us. I don't feel entitled nor am I spoiled. I work hard and am loyal.I treat my husband with love and respect. I can throw out some negative comments AND positive comments as well about all races and both genders. There is no way we can generalize about any specific race or gender across the board. Hair color is just that. Hair color. I have been treated both good and bad by blacks. Do I become a selective racist? I have also met some pretty crappy whites and Asians as well. Am I full of self white hate? NO! I have to judge each person based on their behavior and how they treat me. Their actions are what we as human beings need to look at when meeting people. So some men prefer blondes, brunettes, black women, white women, Asian women etc...I have my preferences when it comes to men too. I like tall, dark haired white men. Am I a racist? Not at all. I have just always preferred that look. I also have morals. Those are taught in the home. Maybe some people need to get real and stop watching all of the reality TV and other BS they shove down our throats. Intimacy between two people in love is much better than jumping from bed to bed constantly trying to find the next best thing. It will never happen. How lonely really.
