Tiki Barber’s homewrecking girlfriend is a piece of work

NBC correspondent and former NFL football player Tiki Barber speaks at an event to launch First Lady Michelle Obama's initiative Let's Move, a campaign to combat the childhood obesity epidemic, in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington on February 9, 2010. UPI/Alexis C. Glenn.

Back in April, The New York Post began reporting that NBC coanchor and sports dude Tiki Barber had dumped his 8-months-pregnant wife Ginny, all for a young NBC intern that he was boning. Later, the NYP got some sources who claimed that Tiki and this girl, Traci, had been boning for two years, in what must have been the neverending internship/whore apprenticeship. Tiki also lavished her with gifts and was keeping Traci in style too. Anyway, Tiki recently gave an interview where he tried to “correct the record” on what really happened to his marriage. His take? He and 8-months pregnant Ginny were separated already when he and Traci started boning. Keep in mind that no one had filed papers or anything when the story broke – and Tiki and Ginny were still living together in their apartment.

Anyway, you knew this was coming: the little girl must have her voice! Traci the Mistress spoke to Crushable (via Page Six) about her relationship with Tiki, and she sounds just as dumb as you’d expect:

Tiki Barber’s girlfriend, Traci Johnson, insists she and the ex-Giant didn’t get together until he’d split with his wife of 11 years, Ginny, who was then pregnant with twins. She writes on crushable.com: “I knew that Tiki didn’t leave Ginny when she was eight months pregnant for me. I knew that his relationship had deteriorated before my relationship with him was even a thought in his mind.”

Traci said she was shocked to find herself on The Post’s front page when we broke the story in April. She recalls “crying to Tiki . . . begging him to . . . scream it from the top of 30 Rock, to simply tell the world the truth because I thought it was destroying me, him… Tiki sat me down . . . and said, ‘Nothing that I can say will change their perception.’”

She adds they enjoy watching rented movies “or enjoying an episode of ‘Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman’ . . . you can find us at a cozy wine bar with friends or playing in a co-ed softball league.” Tiki and Ginny are still battling over their divorce settlement.

Remember when being someone’s mistress used to have a thin veil of class? It was before my time, but I always think of Maria Callas and Aristotle Onassis, who were lovers despite his first and second marriages. Maria rarely, if ever, spoke about him publicly, and their relationship seemed to have an upper-class elegance to it, even though we know now that they were both really messed-up people. This little Traci girl… ugh. What ever happened to class? If you’re going to screw a married man while his wife is pregnant, have the decency to shut your mouth.

Here are some old images of Tiki and his wife Ginny:

    His wife looks like she was way too good for him anyway.

  3. TruTru says:

    I agree, I watched an interview with the both of them and this chick has a scowl on her face and quite a bit of TUDE problem…

    whore, oops, sorry, it slipped out.

  4. NayNay says:

    What is up with all this homewrecking whores? I guess the only types of men that they can get are married men. No man with real morals would want a piece of trash like her, or LeAnn, Rachel U, etc…

  5. Whatever says:

    When did it become acceptable to gain fame from banging rich, married men? These b*tches should be ashamed, but none of them seem to have enough sense to be embarrassed by their whorish behavior.

  6. meme says:

    STFU beeyotch.

  7. Roma says:

    You know what they say about girls who have their names end with an “i” when they should be a “y”… they’re easy.

  8. WTF? says:


    i couldn’t have said it better myself

  9. canadianchick says:

    Ginny looks lovely-his loss fo’ sho’.

  10. DetRiotgirl says:

    Wow. She brought 30 Rock into this. Did anyone else catch that whiff of desperation for status? It was very “I wanted him to crawl up on a pile of diamonds and shout down to the peasants below that he could decide when he had seperated from his wife retroactively. Rich and famous people all own time machines. Not that any of you judgey, normal people would know anything about that!”

    Also, leaving a pregnant girlfriend or wife is high up on my list of unforgivable things men can do. How does this little intern get her mind around his pregnant wife? Do you really want to be with the kind of “man” who would leave a woman who is 8 months pregnant? Plus, weren’t they having this affair for two years? How does she get her mind around Ginny being pregnant in the first place if they were “separated”? Did she get pregnant via divorce papers? I mean, honestly! Either this intern is the worst kind of gold digging trash, or the stupidest woman alive.

  11. ! says:

    Right, they were so separated that they kept right on boning.

    Actually, Tiki probably told the little blonde dipshit that Ginny has been pregnant since before they were separated. Something tells me that airhead would believe it.

  12. Kevin says:

    Glad the Tampa Bay Bucs got the GOOD brother, Rhonde.

  13. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “Either this intern is the worst kind of gold digging trash, or the stupidest woman alive.”

    I vote “both”.

  14. lucy2 says:

    This idiot thinks we’re all as stupid as she is.

  15. RHONYC says:

    “I knew that his relationship had deteriorated before my relationship with him was even a thought in his mind.”


    i love how these broads wax poetic like ‘relationship experts’ when explaining their dirt.

    ridiculous. lol 🙂

  16. Rita says:

    Traci the mistress sounds a bit to much like LeAnn the mistress. Is there a school these chicks go to or a book they all study from?

  17. aenflex says:

    His name is Tiki Barber. Sooner or later something was bound to happen.

  18. LindyLou says:

    @Whatever – I second everything you said. It’s inconceivable to me that these sluts are gaining fame (and fortune in some cases) for sleeping with married men. There was a time when these women would be ashamed and hide what they were up to. Not anymore.

  19. TQB says:

    @DetRiotgirl i love your translation!!!

  20. Taya says:

    His wife was way to good for this scumbag. I hope she takes everything he has.

  21. Toe says:

    The first impression i got was the wife got pregnant to keep the man. Some of them stay, not all of them.
    As for the other girl: why should she hide (and be alil classy) if when she talks the wife wants divorce inmediately? That her ultimate goal, for you to divorce him….

  22. bellaluna says:

    I would never, EVER be with a married man. Especially one who’s wife was pregnant. These bitches have no shame.

  23. Katalina76 says:

    Let me preface this by saying that I DO NOT condone what Tiki did to his wife, but I have met both him and Ginny when he was a player for the Giants. Ginny did her level best to separate herself from the rest of the wives and families after the game, going so far as waiting in a secluded area for her husband instead of waiting with the rest of the families.

    I do feel bad for her, it’s a horrible situation to go through as a wife and mother; however, she certainly comes across a snooty jerk.

  24. Green Is Good says:

    DetRiotgirl: ROFLing at your comment “Did she get pregnant via divorce papers?”

    If a man is gonna screw around, tell the mistress-whore to STFU.

  25. Moreaces says:

    Her and Tiki are both low life scum, hopefully it wont take long for Karma to come danceing along..

  26. Moreaces says:

    How does this little intern get her mind around his pregnant wife? Do you really want to be with the kind of “man” who would leave a woman who is 8 months pregnant?
    Scum begets scum

  27. Chickadees4me says:

    Tiki & Traci hmmmmmm both end in I’s lol, these skunts deserve each other, Ginny is better off without him

  28. Sumodo1 says:

    Glad there’s another Barber brother to counteract the “evil twin.”

  29. hellen says:

    It can’t be said too often! If he cheats WITH YOU he will cheat ON YOU. The clock is now ticking and, as always….karma is a beeyotch.

  30. Kate says:

    You know, people make mistakes. People do horrible things and hurt others. It happens. And it happens to us all.

    You know what you do when you do horrible things and hurt others? You apologize. And then you keep your mouth shut about it. You try to repair the damage you have done and you work on yourself as a human being so you won’t do it again. And you don’t make a public issue out of it.

    You do not give interviews in an attempt to portray yourself as the “victim.”

    There are victims in this case, and they are not Tiki and his whore.

  31. Karen says:

    @Katalina76 – I’m not sure what you are trying to say. Ginny waited for Tiki away from the other player families after the game…I’m unsure how that at all related to why Tiki continued to have unprotected sex with her to add children to their family YET still bone this airhead of the 10th degree. She was still there to wait for him after the game…even if she wasn’t there, all you do is wait with the other WAGs and children until your man emerges from the player tunnel. My friend is married to a pro football player and not every spouse chooses to wait inside the stadium. They are home with their children or living in their hometown raising their families instead of attending every game.

    Not at all trying to put down your comment…I’m just looking for more insight about what you wrote.

  32. Bopa says:

    My guess is he sold the mistress the usual story that the wife is a fire breathing ogre and the mistress is somehow better for him all the while he’s still living with the wife and giving no signs that he wants to move on. I don’t get why women fall for these lies, if he’s really done with his wife he would have filed for divorce before she got pregnant.

  33. The Hamm is My Dream Man says:

    I cannot stand women who think it’s ok to date/get involved with/screw around with/”fall in love” with/whatever with MARRIED MEN. They are married for a reason. Married means “I’m sharing my life to someone else, leave me alone”.

    When did it become a way of becoming famous? Whoring around?

  34. Katalina76 says:

    As I said before, I do not condone any of Tiki’s behavior. And yes, not all the player’s families go to the games, but Ginny DID. And while she was there, she was too snooty to even speak to any of the other player’s wives or family. She sat in different seats, waited in roped off areas (with security)in an already private area underneath the stadium after the games. Again, I DO NOT think this justifies Tiki’s behavior. I was just sharing my experiences with his wife, and quite frankly, she was not nice. At all.

  35. K.at says:

    Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman-what a ridiculous show to a. watch, b. publicly admit to everyone that you watch it while ruining a marriage. At least pick a decent show, movie

  36. Karen says:

    @Katalina – Thanks for the providing more insight! 🙂

  37. Anti-icon says:

    This whole NBC mess is indicative of the crap that has been parading as news and entertainment at that network for decades. This is a disgrace and I hope that guy is off the air.

  38. Kitten says:

    “I cannot stand women who think it’s ok to date/get involved with/screw around with/”fall in love” with/whatever with MARRIED MEN. They are married for a reason. Married means “I’m sharing my life to someone else, leave me alone”.”
    @The Hamm-Completely agree with you in that I would not touch a married man with ten-foot pole. The problem is that while WE see married as meaning “I’m sharing my life with someone else, leave me alone” some married men, apparently, do not.
    Those two deserve each other.
    Poor Ginny. Regardless of what kind of a person she is, it’s gotta suck to have all the added stress during pregnancy.

  39. Leticia says:

    Tiki and this tramp have no shame. People like this should be publicly shunned. As in, everywhere they go, people refuse to make eye contact, acknowledge, etc.

  40. Jeri says:

    Wonder what Gloria Allred would do if a wife of a slut f-cker came to her. Would she give her press conference & blame the husband & slut. The wives have too much class to go with Gloria.

    Tiki may not have wanted Ginny socializing with the other wives, she may have found out sooner about his activities.

  41. anon33 says:


    Probably “Daddy Didn’t Pay Enough Attention To Me” University.

  42. Cakes says:

    This chick is so dumb! Really- he’s been with you for 2 years and then gets his wife whom he supposed to be “separated” from pregnant. Ive been hit on by married men and their song and dance is always the same. Their wife is awful, they never have sex, she doesnt understand him, blah blah blah. The thing is: they expect their b.s. to work because there are so many girls, like this dumb B, who fall for it.
    And Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman? GMAFB.
    Stupid whore.

  43. Alicia says:

    What is with all the name-calling, really? I mean, yes, what this mistress did was absolutely wrong, but TIKI was cheating on his wife. It seems a lot of you are blaming the mistress, but hey, it took two people to have an affair, and there would be no mistress if Tiki would just have stayed at home with his wife. IMHO, they are BOTH whores!

  44. KJ says:

    Has any homewrecker in the history of the world ever NOT used the “the relationship was already over” line?? I mean really-EVER??

  45. oduroyal says:

    I totally agree CB, and I hate these media outlets for giving these hoes a platform to speak in the first place. I was just reading Allure magazine and they profiled not one, not two, but THREE of Tiger’s mistresses. I was so pissed I wrote in to tell them that I was never going to read their magazine again which is true.

    I am SO glad the NY Giants won their superbowl right after that cheating/backstabbing snitch of a player Tiki Barber left. Serves him right…all those years in the league and NO RING. What a loser.

  46. LittleOat says:

    @Alicia, I agree that they are both whores. But this is in response to an interview she gave, so of course the comments will be directed at her.

    If/when Tiki gives an interview for “his side of the story,” I’m sure people would be calling him a whore just as much and picking apart every stupid thing he says.

  47. Luci says:

    some guys simply deserve chemical castration

  48. Henriette says:

    Yeah, I’ve heard from several sources that Ginny is NOT a nice person. Still, nothing warrants a husband screwing around and leaving you when you’re just about to give birth to his twins!

    I loved this line, “I knew that his relationship had deteriorated before my relationship with him was even a thought in his mind.” Um, Traci… where else would a thought be if not in his mind? A thought in his tree? A thought in his car? A thought in his shoes? If you’re going to go on record, at least try to not sound like a total dumbass!
