Tiki, Tiki, Tiki

Tiki Bar(ber) used to have my respect, if only for being named after one of my favorite kinds of bars, but no more…!  The 35-year-old football star-turned-“Today” show-correspondent has left his EIGHT-MONTHS-PREGNANT wife of 11 years, Ginny, for a 23-year-old NBC intern.

Tiki, Tiki, Tiki.

Ginny, who is expecting twins (!!), found out about the relationship late last year, after Tiki moved out of their Upper East Side home.  Ginny is a former fashion publicist and full-time mom to the couple’s two sons, A.J., 7, and Chason, 6.

According to gossip central, The New York Post, the blonde intern was photographed sitting next to Tiki last month at a Washington, DC, screening of a documentary on Senegal that he hosted for the Travel Channel.  Sources believe she also accompanied Tiki to Senegal for the filming late last year, when Ginny was three months pregnant.

All together now:  Tiki, Tiki, Tiki.

The affair is particularly eyebrow-raising considering Tiki’s very public disdain for his philandering father.

“I don’t give a [bleep] that the relationship didn’t work,” he said of his parents’ split in a 2004 Post interview. “Not only did he abandon her, I felt like he abandoned us for a lot of our lives.  I have a hard time forgiving that.”

Interesting.

In his 2007 memoir, “Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond,” Tiki described the example he wanted to set for his kids.

“I want to be an honorable man, because that’s what I want them both to be,” he wrote, noting, “My family is everything to me.”

Unfortunately, Tiki’s penis disagrees.  His penis just released this statement:

“After 11 years of marriage, Ginny and I have decided to separate.  This decision was a painful one, but we are moving forward amicably and will continue to work together to raise our children with the love and dedication they have always known.”

Ah, well, I’m sure it will be true love forever between Tiki and the cute intern with daddy issues.  *Ahem*

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)
