If this is because she wants to do TV and he does not want her to, then shame on him. She's stood by him all these years while he plays in different NFL cities. Let her have her own fun now.

I still think Deion should get together with Devin Deray, they would make a great couple. So what if she's an ex porn star, I believe Devin and Prime Time can make it work!

So I guess all the celebrities that are still married must be wondering why they are staying together, since apparently every one else is divorcing. I guess "for better or for worse" must translate into "until I get tired of looking at your sorry ass."

It seems a more than a few people want to start 2012 WITHOUT their mates. Join the club Deion maybe you and Kobe can cry in each other's beers over your recent events. His wife is gorgeous though.

Unfortunatly this is what is destroying this country. People seem to have forgotten what it means to be a family. When the family is not there to support each other in time of need, the government fills the void. The greater the need, the bigger the government. Almost forgot, she is hot.
