There are many reasons that this is one of the most-watched events of the year. And of course, there are the celebrity sightings. There are so many
thirsty celebrities who just want to be part of the scene. And then there are some who genuinely are. There are plenty of celebrities and reality TV stars who have dated (and married) NFL players.
Of course, we are not going to post anything about the actual game on this website. Who’s playing, again? Oh, right the New England Patriots (again) and the Los Angeles Rams. Good for them.
Instead, we are going to take a stroll down memory lane and look at the pivotal moments when reality television and football have intersected throughout the years.
Right now, Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Porsha Williams is all about her relationship with Dennis McKinley. In all honesty, it’s pretty much the only storyline this season aside from ridiculous fights about clothing and accessories.
Nevertheless, when Porsha first became a Housewife, she wasn’t even Porsha Williams. She was Porsha Stewart, the wife of former football player Kordell Stewart. Oh, how things have changed! Now she has implants, a racier wardrobe, and a whole new (significantly more fun) attitude!
And of course, Bravo viewers are very familiar with Kim Zolciak’s relationship with ex-NFL player Kroy Biermann. Before he became a part of the reality TV lifestyle, he played for the Atlanta Falcons. Unfortunately, he got injured and got bounced around by a couple teams after that, but thankfully he has Don’t Be Tardy paycheck as a backup plan.
Check out photos of those couples and the other reality TV stars who have dated NFL players. There are even two very famous reality TV alums who both dated former Dallas Cowboys football player Tony Romo in our list. Click through the photo gallery below to relive some of the most notorious reality TV and NFL crossovers.

We "met" Kendra Wilkinson when she was one of Hugh Hefner's three girlfriend on The Girls Next Door. Who would have through that being one of three girlfriends would actually be a more simple time in her life? She went on to marry football player Hank Baskett. He cheated on her and they discussed it on every reality TV show that they could.

Jessica Simpson is expecting her third child with retired football player Eric Johnson. However, he wasn't her first football playing love interest. She used to date Tony Romo when he played for the Dallas Cowboys. Unfortunately for her, it wasn't the best-received relationship with the Dallas fans blaming her for losses and labeling her as a bad luck charm.

Before she became Kim Kardashian West, Kim dated New Orleans Saints player Reggie Bush for years. I guess "Kimye" is a lot catchier than "Bush and the Tush"
