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

- By Bossip Staff

Melani Ismail

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.

  • http://u bklynlady

    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?


  • BB

    that photo of mcbriar looks so photoshopped like his head got pasted right on sum1 else

  • TheREALdeal

    Although most of this lot are actually wives lol

  • Bdot

    Shouldn’t this be called THE DALLAS COWBOYS WIVES??? This is the best they could come up with? And I KNEW Pillar would have her attention-addicted *ss up in there. No thanks.

  • Master Bates

    Most of these wives may have more substance than the basketball wives. Pilar Sanders is a banger. Chinita looks like she will knock u out. That is a big, rawbone female!!

    You have some hatred towards black men, i see. Amanda Davis is not ugly she is actually prettier than about 30% of the black females running around and she is married to a big black male. Not denzel washington, Should of known you had an agenda. Its Ridiculous and that black woman is far from lovely. When a black man is with a light skinned woman you always have something to say but with a white male he is into black women. GTFOH she is a light skinned woman come on now if that had been a black man he would have self hatred.

  • Jordan

    Some of these women I thought were white are very light light skinned women. Damn the NFL into that brand of female. Deon sanders wife is the business and she looks good. But you could have fooled me with the other women they look white in that picture but are black. Light skinned women getting them cakes.

  • daniel

    @ hurricane venus the bm who’s married to the ww is fat himself. and the wm who’s married to the bw is no looker by any means. i know people say all the time. how and the hell did he get her.

  • Hurricane Venus

    I don’t have an agenda.

    I don’t even advocate the IR thing, it is overrated and most of the time those unions aren’t even genuine.

    I just found it VERY hilarious that even when a black man is rich he still manages to pick up trashy ugly white women that no one else wants.

    It is interesting though that white men get quality black women when they date them, while black men get busted white women 9 out of 10 times.

    Again just like my post of color obsession of black men you know I’m right, black men get busted beckys, don’t even front…lol

  • Marc

    Hurricane beauty is subjective and marriage is not based on beauty. Maybe this white woman went beyond the bounds of a woman to get her man. Maybe she is a great wife, she cooks, cleans and keeps him happy. Most people who always talk about beauty are usually the ugliest people in the world. Look, he loves his wife who cares what she looks like. The man is far from rich, he has a couple of millions in the bank. This ego trip of beauty is a problem, I dont care what type of women white or other ethnic groups get, its unimportant. Everything is a competition or something except education. Marriage is based on a wife being a good wife not looks. You dont know how they got married so why make a comment that seems ignorant. Maybe she knew him from way back who knows, maybe she stayed an extra hour at practice to bring him his food and walk him home, who knows. Cut it out, Venus your sounding like an ugly woman.
