Olivia Munn thanks Packers fans for supporting Aaron Rodgers


Kaiser speculated yesterday that it seems like Pats fans have come around to Gisele. It appears to me like Olivia Munn might be making her way into the hearts of the Cheeseheads, and the feeling appears to be mutual. After the Green Bay Packers crushing loss to the Atlanta Falcons for the NFC Championship, Olivia, who is the longtime girlfriend of GB’s quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, posted a handwritten note to her Instagram:

The team did have a rocky start to their season and many didn’t think they would make the playoffs. But they rallied and ended their regular season 10-6, winning their division. But I think we all suspect the true “adversity” was the drama surrounding Aaron and his estrangement with his family. It has been swirling around them every since his brother Jordan made it public while on The Bachelorette. Although the estrangement has been going on for two years, it wasn’t played out in public until now, and boy was it brought to the forefront.

I find this so interesting because perhaps you remember that fans and sports analysts placed blame on Olivia when Aaron’s season tanked in 2015 in what read like good ol’ fashioned misogyny. At that point, Olivia was kind of done with the media and the fans. Something changed. Maybe, as this Bleacher Report suggests, people realized that Mr. Chill the Quarterback was not as easy-going as he appeared. That what motivated him came from within and not some witchy woman’s spell. Since I know how seriously GB fans take their football, I’d take their approval of Olivia over his family’s. Who knows what brought about this change of hearts on both sides but I’m glad to see it. One thing seems obvious – Olivia’s ‘message’ was not just for intended for the fans. And I assume the Rodgers Family heard it loud and clear.

    She also spent time liking memes dissing his family…me thinks his family is probably onto something.

    • JulP says:

      Yeah, she should have taken the high road and just let her note speak for itself. On another note, her face is jacked in that header photo. It’s really sad because she was so beautiful before.

    • Missmarirose says:

      If I saw first hand how my boyfriend’s family was hurting him by running to the press to air their dirty laundry nationwide, I’d be liking memes dissing them too.

      And people don’t cut off their families all of a sudden just because of a new girlfriend or boyfriend, it comes from years of tolerating shit from them and then finally finding someone who gives them the courage to stand up for themselves. I’m sure this was a long time coming for Aaron.

  2. Shambles says:

    But the real question is…
    How does he deal with the fact that her face changes every time she eats a magic potato?

  3. Char says:

    I’m still baffled by her new face. She was beautiful before, & yes, she lost some weight, but she looks like Megan Fox’s current face.

    As far as his family goes, they seem like assholes. I have a cousin whose family didn’t approve of his girlfriend, then they became engaged & his parents wouldn’t even come to the wedding. One of his brother’s did show up, & some of the rest of us went to support him because there was nothing wrong with his now wife. & somehow his parents thought that, if my cousin went through with the wedding, then they would accept his wife. Doesn’t work that way, when you’ve already burned the bridges. If Aaron’s family problems really center around Olivia, they would be better backing off, because, as was the case with my cousin, you attack someone they love & they are more defensive then if you had attacked them personally.

      Megan Fox/Emily Blunt mix.

      ^ I’ve seen this happen toon with families. Bridges burnt don’t get rebuilt in a day.

      Even if the family is trying to honestly help and they see major red flags, too much division/fighting causes the couple to go into “us against the world” mode. A super romantic fight for our love narrative. They tend to be closer than they ever were before and more blinded to those flags. You got to let people make their own choices.

      Her eye surgery is obvious-hope she liked the end result and doesnt regret it! I saw her on that proactive commercial on hulu and girl cannot act it was hilarious! She seems deeply insecure and that sucks.

  4. OSTONE says:

    I feel like this whole situation is off. I feel like it wasn’t appropriate to allude to the family situation if Aaron didn’t want to talk about it publicly.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Yes, you cannot choose who your kids love. You just have to be there for them if it doesn’t work out. Any other response is selfish of the parents ( I am a parent ).

      • Snappyfish says:

        Family is hard. I watched my sister treat the family with amazing disrespect when she got her new boyfriend. His family is evangelical & v v bigoted.

        She acts as if we no longer exist because “we won’t take Christ as our savior & be born again” We are catholic! Her new family (his) don’t believe Catholics are Christian & that is the rub.

        I have no idea what is going on with Munn & the Rodgers family but I do think I prefer her former face.

  5. Christine says:

    Perhaps the PR game is that it’s better for his family not to talk to him because of his hot sexy girlfriend, rather than not talk to him because of his sexual orientation. If they are ashamed of him for being gay, they won’t put him because to do so would bring- in their eyes- shame to the family.

  6. Crumpet says:

    Aaron Rogers is an incredible quarterback – I had never really watched a Packers game until Sunday. As to the comment above regarding his sexual orientation? Really?

  7. Whatever Gurl says:

    Family has said they don’t trust her and they question her motives and she’s not a good match for him.

    And Olivia needs to take the high road?

    This is a man is his 30s!

    His family needs to shut up, keep their opinions to themselves, and understand that his pulling away is because they are overstepping boundaries.

  8. Hollie says:

    Can I just say it’s not like Jordan has gotten detailed and written some sort of tell all about it? Geez. And originally, Olivia was asked about how she felt about Jordan going on the show when he was first announced and SHE said they weren’t very close. Which is really all Jordan ever said on the show too. I’m not saying which side is right or wrong, but this idea that Jordan Rogers is the one who made this a massive issue to try to hurt Aaron’s career is kind of bs. Olivia also went around liking comments on Instagram saying negative things about his family which doesn’t help the current situation. I’m sure it’s complicated, so let’s not glorify Aaron just because he’s probably one of the greatest players of all time.

    I could swear this estrangement mess started because baby of the family Jordan was dating one of Olivia’s best friends and was cheating on her. And Olivia wouldn’t cover for him and gave a heads up to her best friend. And best friend and Jordan broke up. And Aaron’s family thought it was a betrayal and wanted Aaron to take sides and dump Olivia for spilling the beans and hurting Jordan. And Aaron wouldn’t dump Olivia over it. And they’ve been estranged ever since. Maybe the estrangement wouldn’t still be going on and Jordan wouldn’t be such an entitled douche canoe today if his family held him accountable for his hurtful actions instead of giving him the special snowflake treatment and blaming what he did on someone who was looking out for her friend?

    • Hollie says:

      He did cheat on Brittany. But Brittany was his childhood friend from northern Cali and became friends with Olivia through Jordan and Aaron. I suspect that all that drama contributed to already tense relationships however I can’t lie and say I’d be pleased if my brother and his gf were all of a sudden buddy buddy with my ex, regardless of circumstances.

    It was a nice note to Green Bay Packers fans.
