What can I say about Steve McNair that hasn’t already been said? I recently did a post on cheaters, so we all know how I feel about them. I’d like to withhold judgment of Steve McNair but his situation fits so neatly in the “things you shouldn’t get caught up in” box.
A rich, black, married, father of four SONS has an affair with a barely legal Iranian waitress, who was, evidently, not to be lied to or played with. She kills him, kills herself, and his legacy is forever tarnished. His wife is shamed and heartbroken. His kids are fatherless and angry.
I blame the selfish man, the selfish woman, and the wife who kept her head in the sand. Yes, his wife has some blame for her pain. An observant wife would have never gotten herself in this situation. An observant wife would have been sad that her EX-husband had been shot and killed.
I know they were married for 12 years. I know she had 4 sons to look after. I know they said vows and she should have been able to trust him. Reality check: Steve had had affairs before – and his wife should have known about them.
To all wives and girlfriends: You have to check up on your mate from time to time if for no other reason than AIDS. It’s out there, and if your man is having an ongoing relationship with another woman (or man), chances are he’s not always strapped and he’s coming home to YOU unstrapped, too. A little pro-active snooping will go a long way in avoiding STDs and embarrassment.
I trust my husband. So far, I have a good man who’s home every night and who loves the ground I walk on. BUT…who knows? A human is a human is a human. This is my body and I owe it to myself to snoop once a year to make sure he’s not doing something that I need to know about. The biggest lie ever handed to women is that if you look for something you will find it. The real truth is that if it’s not there, it absolutely cannot be found.
I can’t tell a wife or girlfriend not to accept her cheating man’s ways, but please arm yourself with the knowledge that he's cheating and then either insist he wraps it up with YOU or get out. It’s more important to save your life than to save face.
*Jumping off my soap box now*
The irony, Steve McNair filmed Suicide ad nine days before he was killed.

Eddie George says that Steve McNair was trying to fill a void after retirement.
Steve’s mistress' DUI video:
Now look at this: Lauren London, pregnant for Lil Wayne. Nivea, pregnant for Lil Wayne. And Wayne has the nerve to be the face of a condom ad.
I'm not at all feeling Nivea's pregancy frock, and doesn't she look perfectly crazy?
Poor Lauren. She looks like the dream has died... Or like $$$$$
