Michael Strahan Dishes Advice On How To Catch A Baller Like Himself
Michael Strahan admits to being unlucky in love but that doesn’t stop him from dishing out advice about landing a man like himself in his new book.
Michael Strahan wants a wife – as long as she’s not a gold digger.
“I always wanted to be married,” the “Live! with Kelly and Michael” co-host tells the Daily News. “I’ve been very unlucky in that category.”
It would take the right woman for Strahan to “Wake Up Happy” – the title of his new book out Oct. 13.
After two divorces, one explosive, and a cancelled engagement to Eddie Murphy’s ex, Nicole Murphy, the former New York Giants’ defensive end is very specific about what he wants – and doesn’t want – in a woman.
The biggest deal-breaker for him: gold diggers.
Strahan recalls a moment with one unnamed woman as they strolled past luxury shoe shop Louboutin on Madison Ave.
“She pointed at a pair in the window and said, ‘You’re going to buy me those shoes right there.’
“She didn’t get the shoes,” Strahan reveals, “And she didn’t get me.”
Strahan, 43, even presents a set of instructions on how to get a man just like him in “Wake Up Happy.”
Among the rules: “Physical Attraction Only Goes So Far.” Strahan admits that a pretty face and a hot body can lure him in, but insists “soul chemistry” is more important.
“But men do put a lot of emphasis on looks,” he tells The News.
Another Strahan tip: “Swagger is a Pheromone.” He adds that confidence can take a woman from a 6 to a 10.
“Confidence is sexy,” he says. “It makes their face prettier and their body great.”
Sounds like he’s got better advice than Steve Harvey. Do you plan on buying this book?
