View Full Version : Ted Johnson calls Vince Wilfork's wife "ugliest he's ever seen"

Needless to say, Wilfork was pissed and Johnson backed off quick.

Sorry if out there...

BOSTON (CBS) — There are certain things that should always be off limits for conversations, especially in public forums, and former Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson is learning that today.

Johnson, now a sports radio host in Houston, was participating in a segment called “None Of Your Business.” Johnson was asked by a caller to say which of his former teammates had the “ugliest spouse.” The website Houston Media Watch captured the audio and posted the segment online.

“Oh, my gosh. All right, you know what? I got it. Yeah, I got it. This is a big, big man,” Johnson said. “He won’t hear this — Vince Wilfork.”

Well, Johnson’s presumption proved true, but only temporarily, as the audio clip made its way around Twitter on Friday morning. And apparently, Wilfork caught wind of the comments, because he tweeted out a warning shot.

“Let me apologize to my fans in advance of whatever I may say today,” Wilfork tweeted, “but I do not play when it comes to my family.”

Wilfork’s previous tweet was directed at @TedJ52, Johnson’s Twitter account, according to his bio on the Sports Radio 610 site.

“[You're] barking up the wrong tree,” Wilfork wrote to Johnson. “I hear and see everything [expletive].”
Later, Wilfork posted a note he wrote on his iPhone to Twitter and directed it at Johnson. It read (edited for clarity):

“Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but it is [messed] up when an ex-teammate that I actually looked up to and enjoyed playing with takes shots at my wife for whatever reasons. I love my wife and my family. She is my everything. I don’t care when this was said — no one should cross that line. The line has been crossed so it is what it is. All I wanna say is [expletive] you! You don’t want to [expletive] with me or my family. Take shots at me all day but not them. I have a great family life and [am] blessed to have them.”

Johnson tweeted out an apology later Friday morning.

“I just made a huge error in judgement and want to apologize to Vince and his wife for comments I made earlier today on a Houston radio show,” @TedJ52 tweeted. “Vince and his family are outstanding people who I have admired since they arrived in [New England]. I learned a big lesson today and feel terrible.”

Wilfork and Johnson were teammates in 2004, when Wilfork was a rookie and Johnson was in his final season in the NFL.

Wilfork met his wife, Bianca, when he was a freshman at the University of Miami.

I was listening when he said that. I love that segment.

Re: Bianca wilfork....she's not my type, but when it comes to ex teammates and people you deal/dealt with, you can choose your words more carefully.

I should probably keep my keyboard silent, but I would like to go on a little mini rant here:

:rant:
Why do guys think it is ok to trash a women based on her looks? I read the posts from males I have met in person who are not in the least bit attractive who feel the need to insult to looks of a woman in a picture. I usually laugh and shake my head, these guys say the wouldn't hit it, when the reality is they wouldn't stand a chance in hell of "hitting it."

If women were as shallow as men who do this crap, and only graded men on looks, not many males would make it to the alter.

Why would that jerk ask the question and why would Johnson answer it?

Too many people don't know the difference between humor and cruelty. If you don't like to be called little, white boy, the N word, or fat b****, then don't think it's OK to do the rest. If you don't care about somebody else's feelings, then you are the moron who deserves no respect....AND DONT' LAUGH when some moron is entertaining you. You'll deserve it when you're the next victim.

I wouldn't expect this guy to do anymore than apologize, which he already did, but he should know that his apology does not even come close to making up for the damage. I hope most people turned off the radio when this crap was airing.

The object of the game is to ask questions that the host don't want to answer in hopes that they'll say "none of your business" and you win a prize.

They do this segment every Friday, and Teddy has participated a few times. He seems like a good guy overall that made a mistake here.

I get your point when it gets insulting, which might be somewhat of a matter of opinion. Guys are practically born addicted to the looks of "hot" women, though. It's tough not to look....and then it's easy to stick your foot in your mouth. I believe a married man should try really hard to keep even his eyes off of other women, but that is easy for me to say when I am sadly not married.

It's an observation. You have eyes, you see things.

Doesn't mean you have to do inappropriate things, but I can't help it if I see an attractive woman. :shades:

I think the statement "I have meet plenty of men with ugly wives, but i never meet a man with a wife that is ugly" applies here.

Johnson is over 25 he should know better than the get set-up with a frat boy like question of that manner. Nothing ever good comes from calling somebody you had/have a relationship wife ugly. You are going to at best wear a cussing out if not full out ass whipping. You are not bleeping her, so why do you care anyway.

If you wanna be happy
For the rest of your life,
Never make a pretty woman your wife,
So from my personal point of view,
Get an ugly girl to marry you.

A pretty woman makes her husband look small
And very often causes his downfall.
As soon as he marries her
Then she starts to do
The things that will break his heart.
But if you make an ugly woman your wife,
You'll be happy for the rest of your life,
An ugly woman cooks her meals on time,
She'll always give you peace of mind.

Don't let your friends say
You have no taste,
Go ahead and marry anyway,
Though her face is ugly,
Her eyes don't match,
Take it from me she's a better catch.

Say man.
Hey baby.
Saw your wife the other day.
Yeah?
Yeah, she's ugly.
Yeah, she's ugly but she sure can cook.
Yeah?. Okay.

People here are well within their boundaries to speak on her looks. Personally its not something I can ever remember doing as far as speaking on a player's wife being ugly. Just not my thing, but to each his own.

But Johnson lives by a different code because this is a guy he played with. There are just certain places you don't go. He can say all he wants about any of his teammates, but leave wives and kids out of it. Just lost a lot of respect for the guy. And to be that stupid to think that it wouldn't get back to Wilfork makes me question his intelligence overall. Does he not know what year it is?

The point of the game is to ask a question which results in one of the hosts saying "none of your business." That response wins a prize. If the host answers the question, they must do so honestly, and you don't win a prize. The person asking the question wanted to win a prize and probably figured a guy who was the ultimate teammate like TJ would never answer a question that would take a shot at a teammate or a teammate's family. Little did he know TJ would answer the question.

To be honest, I was stunned TJ answered it. As soon as it was asked I thought it was a gimmie winner.

This is not a situation that calls for political correctness. It is a situation that calls for human decency.

That woman (as you refer to her) is from all accounts a wonderful person and wife.

Let me ask this question to all in this thread who are publicly willing to call her ugly (or nasty). Is there a female in your life who you care about that is ugly? Maybe a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a wife of a friend, a co worker? Would you call them ugly (or nasty) to their face? Then why do you think it is acceptable anywhere?

She isn't a Roseanne or a Rosie O'Donnell who put herself in the public eye and is therefore more subject to public opinion.

I personally have a ton of respect for the way Vince stood up for his wife and for the fact that he is in such a loving relationship with her.

Physical attraction might start a relationship, but it cannot sustain it. Looks change or fade. Even the most attractive people's looks change over time.

When I met my first wife it was at work. Didn't think she was all that and a bag of chips at all. We got to know each other and became friends. Then we started hanging out - just as friends.

The more I got to know her, the more I loved her personality, the way she treated me, her goals and ideals and I slowly started looking at her with new eyes. I eventually married my best friend.

Sure, she was probably middle of the road physically speaking but I was looking for someone to live with my whole life.

And maybe that's the way it is with Vince. I'm as guilty as the next guy. I mean I don't want to see this woman in Playboy. I get that. I'm not attracted to her much either. Ugly is too harsh though. I think she deserves what we all do - to be respected as a human being and for being the way God made her. That's it. And if Vince loves her, I see no reason why anyone - even us on a message board should make fun of her solely based on her appearance when we don't know the first thing about her other than a photograph.

I like guy talk because there are plenty of times where there are not truly relevant sports issues and even when there the issue is getting beat to death. what I don't like is that much of "guy talk" has to be immature frat house or lockerroom type talk. More to life than chicks, getting drunk, and pulling silly pranks.

Yeah, I forgot for a second he lost that affiliation a while ago. I honestly couldn't even tell you who filled that time slot. I turn it on sometimes during my drive home, and it doesn't stay on there very long. I just remember Innes or however it's spelled bragging about how good he was at what he does one day, and I've been turned off to them ever since. They may catch a few minutes of my time here and there, but that's about it.

This is not a situation that calls for political correctness. It is a situation that calls for human decency.

That woman (as you refer to her) is from all accounts a wonderful person and wife.

Let me ask this question to all in this thread who are publicly willing to call her ugly (or nasty). Is there a female in your life who you care about that is ugly? Maybe a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a wife of a friend, a co worker? Would you call them ugly (or nasty) to their face? Then why do you think it is acceptable anywhere?

She isn't a Roseanne or a Rosie O'Donnell who put herself in the public eye and is therefore more subject to public opinion.

I personally have a ton of respect for the way Vince stood up for his wife and for the fact that he is in such a loving relationship with her.

Your expecting decency from certain people that think it is ok to talk like this and think low class is funny until someone starts saying how ugly and lose their moms are.

I read some here saying this stuff is all over so no reason to get upset. Hell that is the exact reason to be upset. Our society thinks it is OK demean defame and to treat folks like garbage. Just because you are not right in front of them. When these boys do not have more than 2 inches and need to belittle others to make themselves feel good and there is only one way they would say it other than on the internet or on a call in talk show.

This is the problem with "sports talk radio" devolving into some goofy type of "guy talk".

Who gives a flying flip about who's wife is ugly???! Why is this even a segment on a SPORTS talk show?

I know it's all under the umbrella of entertainment, but turning local sports radio into some sort of bastard stepchild of Howard Stern and Jim Rome is taking a turn for the worst.

I could not care less about what hair gel someone uses, what movies they like, what trip they took with their wives last weekend, blah blah blah.

I immediately change the channel when they start babbling that "guy talk" crap.

I actually like the segment . It's nice to hear some different "entertainment" every once and a while . Talking about the same topic all day everyday , especially with the offseason and little going on in sports. Only so many times you can re tread topics . Just IMHO ...

If my wife or daughter were as ugly as his wife i would have to laugh, what good does it do to get upset about it. If Wilfork has a problem they can work it out like men. It's really just good humor that's commonly shared amongst brothers like football players, soldiers, fraternity, whatever.

Steph's blog about talk radio was spot on. I think a email campaign to the Texans is in order, I really don't like them supporting this level of misogyny.

“It’s all in fun, and it’s generally a ‘ha, ha’ deal,” Lopez said. “I’m not going to speak for Ted, but the lesson for me is that sometimes people take this thing literally. I can see how (Wilfork) would feel from afar.

“Most people understand when you’re being serious on the radio and when you’re having fun, and sometimes that line gets blurred a little bit.”

He said he and Wright plan to continue the segment.

It should be noted that the audio of the conversation between Wright, Lopez and Johnson was recorded and posted by Craig Shelton’s Houston Media Watch website.

UPDATE: The website also posted audio from KILT’s afternoon talk show, including Rich Lord’s comment, referring to Bianca Wilfork, “The truth of the matter is … this is not somebody you want to wake up next to. Did I go over the line?” He added, “She’s got a ways to before she’s even Rikki Lake. I’m trying to back up our boy here. He spoke the truth.”

Sigh. Did Gavin Spittle, KILT’s former program director, take the mute button with him when he moved to Dallas?

I heard Rich Lord's response to what Johnson said later on a website after a friend told me about it and he may have been worse. It just rubbed me the wrong way so I e-mailed the program director at the station to voice my opinion. I normally don't do that kind of thing, but the sophomoric behavior is ruining their station to me. I'm all for being loose and having fun, but according to a few people I talk to they pretty regularly step over some boundaries there that they shouldn't.

She's certainly a big girl, but Vince is a really big guy himself and they both probably like to chow down. But she's actually kinda cute, and they've got really good looking kids.

I haven't listened to 610 since Josh Innis got there. That dude should be nominated for Biggest Douche in the Universe.

I agree completely.

Well said. Just another example of bad talk radio.


Same here on satellite radio. I listen to some 790 on the commutes. Rome is no longer on in Houston, but has you suggested, he has "jumped the shark".

I heard awhile back that Rome is supposed to be back on Houston airwaves.

Here's more info: Rome excited about new Showtime program, return to Houston radio in 2013 (http://blog.chron.com/sportsmedia/2012/11/rome-excited-about-new-showtime-program-return-to-houston-radio-in-2013/)


I like guy talk because there are plenty of times where there are not truly relevant sports issues and even when there the issue is getting beat to death. what I don't like is that much of "guy talk" has to be immature frat house or lockerroom type talk. More to life than chicks, getting drunk, and pulling silly pranks.

I have not heard much beyond the frat house talk, so my own perspective is that most of this "guy talk" is just goofy dude drama and fart jokes...or just plain dumb questions like the one that started this thread.

I actually like the segment . It's nice to hear some different "entertainment" every once and a while . Talking about the same topic all day everyday , especially with the offseason and little going on in sports. Only so many times you can re tread topics . Just IMHO ...

I'll be honest, I do not listen to much sports talk outside of football season. I care about one subject - NFL football - so I'm not the best expert about sports talk radio. I think there are way too many stations these days and most of them have very little relevant conversations. I understand why they are resorting to "guy talk", but then again, I'm not the demographic they are trying to capture.

Frankly the entire 610 lineup is just really bad. Obviously everyone hates Josh Ennis, and he and Seth Payne would rather make unfunny toilet jokes and giggle all show, but I think Rich Lord and John Lopez are awful. Have you ever noticed that Lopez litterally laughs after every comment he makes? I wont even get into "the odd couple" or Mike Meltser. The only thing 610 has is the Texans.

I find myself listening to 790 most of the time to catch Lance Z. And 1560 never comes in clear for me.

And yes, Ted crossed the line. Calling a woman ugly on the air? And someone he knows? What the hell is wrong with you? Imagine if that was someone you cared about. You would be furious. But that is what you get when you hang around 610 and how they do things. Top 3? Celebrity birthdays? More personal talk and bull**** than actual sports discussion.

I should probably keep my keyboard silent, but I would like to go on a little mini rant here:

:rant:
Why do guys think it is ok to trash a women based on her looks? I read the posts from males I have met in person who are not in the least bit attractive who feel the need to insult to looks of a woman in a picture. I usually laugh and shake my head, these guys say the wouldn't hit it, when the reality is they wouldn't stand a chance in hell of "hitting it."

If women were as shallow as men who do this crap, and only graded men on looks, not many males would make it to the alter.

Why would that jerk ask the question and why would Johnson answer it?

She reminds me a bit of Mindy Cohn from Facts of Life. I don't think she's ugly but would say she's NOT my type physically. Okay If you guys will excuse me I have to get up on my soapbox.

:soapbox: (ahem) Okay while I am KNOWN in here for being a bit of a pig I should go on record with a few things. While I am attracted to a certain TYPE of woman that's more a preference than anything else.

I appreciate the inherent beauty in all things feminine. The way women walk, the way they sit the way they eat a sandwich. Women (ALL WOMEN) carry themselves in a way which I find beautiful. They come in various shapes and sizes and I have to admit that I've met women whom I found physically repugnant whose presence and attitude made them "sexy"; conversely I've met women who were the physical epitome of all things beautiful who had the personalities of rabid wolverines with hemorhoidal flare ups and ced personalities MADE them HIDEOUS in my eyes.
Mrs. Wilfork might be a wonderful person and he may love her because she's such a wonderful human being and that says a great deal about him as a person. Says he's NOT that shallow a-hole who has to marry a model or a stripper simply because he has lots of money.

I think however the BIGGER issue here is how little class a man has to have in order to PUBLICLY say disparaging things about another man's WIFE. Disrespect another man all you want, but attacking his wife shows an utter lack of respect and class. Okay I've said my piece. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to see if I can find some pics of Japanese women half my age with disproportionately meaty breasts. :tiphat: Good day.

My GF is 5'4 pale as a sheet of paper and has a square jaw.

Over here in Japan, there's saying. You can get used to looks of not attractive woman. You can get tired of pretty ones. What it means is that it is more important inside than pretty appearance.

Having said that, I do have young and beautiful girlfriend. I just like total beauty inside and outside.

Tedy wasn't lying... that woman is nasty, especially for an NFL wife. All the political correctness in the world can't change that fact...

Everyone calling the woman ugly should post their wives/girlfriends pics. I'm sure she has gained some weight after having her kids but it really is whats on the inside that counts. She doesn't look ugly to me. She may be thicker than I like them but Vince Wilfork is a bg big man. I think Tom Bradys wife looks like a man in the face. I don't see any facial beauty in her but she looks good to Tom.
