VH1 Unveils Their Football Wives… And Most Of These Ladies Are Actually Married!!!

Melani Ismail

Melani Ismail from the cast of Football Wives

Wife of former college and pro football star Rocket Ismail

After meeting on a blind date, Melani and Rocket married four months later and were pregnant with their first child Little Rocket later that year. Fifteen years and four children later, the Ismails are a couple who truly enjoy being one another’s best friend, still behaving like newlyweds. With the youngest of the Ismail children reaching school age, Melani is looking to revitalize her once-promising music career which she had put on hold while raising the family. Rocket retired from the Dallas team at the top of his game, but now is dealing with the effects to his body from a long career in football. Melani is often the voice of reason, and also serves as a touchstone for women looking for advice on what it is like to be married to a pro football player.

Congrats to her! This lady is an OG Football Wife.

Here’s a pic of Rocket Ismail on the cover of an old school issue of SI:

    They all look fake & washed up.. Except Deon Sanders wife..

  • if anything be noble

    Man, the NFL is a business. What pro player with any kind of sense is going to be ok with his wife acting a fool on tv when it could endanger his professional career? That’s why these folks had to go to the UFL to find this level of uh…. talent. (?????) The show found some folks who needed the money in the UFL because NFL players are NOT that that desperate. We’re talking about players who would rather risk it and get home the best way they can when they’re partying rather than take their team’s free car service because they think the league will count up how much they called the car service, then use it against them during contract negotiations, so why would they let their wives broadcast their stuff all over tv. Business.

    George Foster is a former NFL player with the Denver Broncos.

  • Bunny(formerly Angel/UrHeiness)

    Dawn Neufeld & Pilar are the hottest wives IMO. Everyone else looks way too fake & overdone.

  • TeLl iT liKe It Tis

    is it me or does george foster’s wife look like julissa from a different world

  • Sulli

    I’m sure these wives will bring the drama (just like every other VH1 show). I am glad that the women shown are actually STILL married (except for 1). No disrepesct, but each of these women are college grads and appear to be plugged into activities beyond shopping, partying, and complaint about groupies (unlike their Basketball counter parts…no disrespect).

  • I wasn't gone say nuttin, but

    Some of the ladies look like linebacker themselves, justsaying.

  • Amanda

    YAWNNN. I’m bored just looking at these broads.

    Half of those wives are shot.

    Whatever happened to Dion’s show? I enjoyed it….and yes…his wife is a total BANGER

    • huh

      everyone keeps talking about her being a ‘banger’ and a ‘natural beauty’. What was so great about Pilar except for her being mixed, with long hair and some implants?
