These Patriot wives really handle losing gracefully. After their defeat in the Super Bowl last year Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bundchen went off on the Patriots receivers. Now Wes Welker’s wife is trashing Ray Lewis.
Another playoff loss, another Patriots player’s wife sounding off.
No, it wasn’t Tom Brady’s supermodel wife who went on a postgame rant this time, but rather Wes Welker’s wife, Anna Burns Welker, who went on the offensive against the Ravens.
“Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay! What a hall of fame player! A true role model!,” the former Miss Hooters wrote on her Facebook page following the Patriots’ 28-13 loss to Baltimore.
Welker’s wife is referencing an incident that happened in 2000 when Lewis was charged with murder after two men were found dead after a brawl in Atlanta. Lewis and two other men, Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting were later acquitted. Lewis later settled with two family members of the victims in the incident.
Welker’s wife’s outburst was first captured by TheBigLead.com, and comes less than a calendar year after Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen lashed out after the Patriots’ 21-17 loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI last February. Ironically, Welker was the subject of the Brazilian babe’s comments.
Mrs. Welker is an excellent role model, of course.
