It’s no secret that pro athletes date a lot of women and treat them as disposable items. But what happens if years later, a married former NFL linebacker ends up on a reality show with his wife and two women he “put on the team” back in the day? Awkward conversations ensue on “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
Former Falcon Chuck Smith says castmates Phaedra and Kandi were groupies on HIM because he was “THAT GUY.”
Chuck went on to arrogantly tell Phaedra his version of their “relationship” — that she was just one of the many women, including her RHOA co-star Kandi Burruss, that he had used for sex as a young millionaire football player.
“I was THAT GUY in Atlanta. I was in my prime. I was from your hometown and that’s what it is. What describes what we really were? We’re the first version of the friends with the benefits, girl!” he insultingly said.
She was shocked that Chuck attacked her but concluded, “He’s hating ’cause I turned out to be something that he isn’t — very successful and he’s looking back thinking, ‘Wow, she’s definitely the one that really got away.’”
