This Kerry Rhodes saga continues to take bizarre turns. Following Russell “Hollywood” Simpson’s confession that he was allegedly romantically involved with the free agent safety, Rhodes people have come out stating that Hollywood isn’t telling the truth and the photos are just showing Kerry’s friendly side. He’s the type of guy that makes a lot of physical contact with people in his circle. So of course, Hollywood decides to release more photos, gave a follow-up interview and tossed in a text messages as well.
On Making Kerry Rhodes Relevant
“He can make money off this. Before now, people didn’t even talk about Kerry. If you walked into a room and said, ‘Kerry Rhodes had a nice game’, the first thing the guys would say is ‘Who is that?’ If you walked into a room and said ‘Ray Lewis had a great game’ everybody knows who Ray Lewis is. I have really put him out there to make a little bit of money. It’s not like I’m trying to hurt him. I have really helped him because before now, nobody was even thinking about his ass. He can make money off of it. I hear Nike is looking for the first gay athlete and they’re going to pay him millions.”
On Whether He Personally Outed Kerry
“It was definitely [already] out just nobody was talking about it. The football players that played for Arizona have talked about it. It’s been talked about. I’m not ‘outing’ Kerry, Kerry outed himself when he was asked a question and he responded. The people who are saying I’m outing him should be happy if you’re a girl. If you run into him, now you know he likes boys so you won’t be playing yourself. I’m helping you b**** at the end of the day, if you think about it. I’m not outing Kerry. I’m helping the little groupies standing outside the gate. Thing about it, I wasn’t the little girl standing outside the gate, I was the girl inside the gate, getting in the truck with him with my red bottoms on.”
The response from Kerry’s side appears to be to leak information that Rhodes is in fact engaged, and the wedding is scheduled to take place this summer. The alleged fianceé is from DC and works a corporate job OR, she’s a model… so that’s why she hasn’t been spotted around Arizona the last few seasons…Listen, I don’t know if Kerry is really engaged but, his team needs to get on the same page and decide a strategy moving forward.
I’m over it.
