Tiki Barber takes the heat off Jesse James, Tiger Woods

From USA Today:

Today show contributor and NFL star Tiki Barber, 35, is pushing Jesse James and Tiger Woods out of the spotlight for a minute, in light of his announcement that he’s splitting from wife Ginny, who’s expecting twins next month, after the New York Post trumpeted that he’s left her for a “hot” 23-year-old NBC intern.

New York’s Daily News reports today that Barber’s girlfriend, Traci Johnson, convinced her family she was just babysitting for the ex-Giants star as their romance heated up and his marriage fell apart.

“That’s what [her dad] Ernest told me,” Johnson family neighbor Bob Drabik says, according to the paper. Drabik said he believed Barber wrote a letter that helped Johnson, a communications major, land an internship with NBC in 2007. A year later, Barber visited her Mount Saint Mary College campus in Newburgh, Orange County, to address students.
