According to someone named Terez Owens, the couple just returned from Paris and they’re now house-hunting in Miami AND he plans to propose to her on Valentine’s day. I say it’s a bunch of hooey. A-Rod always goes house-hunting with his girlfriends. (Remember the apartment searches with Madonna?) Not happening. Besides, Cameron’s too busy. She’s attached to star in the movie version of my book “An Ex to Grind” and is probably sitting around by herself reading and re-reading the novel 24/7.
The larger question is why would any woman want to marry a professional baseball player? When I was in high school, I thought that being Mrs. Yankee would be the most glamorous, exciting, dreamy thing that could possibly happen. Not anymore. I traveled with the team in 2007 for the She-Fan book. I saw the skanky-looking women lining up at the hotels after night games, dying to jump into bed with the players. Infidelity on the road is a fact of life.
Are there advantages to being Mrs. Yankee? Sure.
Opportunity to start a charitable organization.
A table at the best restaurants.
A chance to meet icons like Yogi.
Free tickets to the games.
But how about the cons of marriage to an active player?
He’s gone from February to November.
You’re raising the kids by yourself.
You’re always wondering where he is when his phone is turned off.
You have to get to know each all over again when he comes home.
Doesn’t sound like much fun to me, despite the perks. On the other hand, if A-Rod and “Cam” really, truly love each other…..Okay, I can’t even type that. It’s not happening, I’m telling you.
