It was announced last week that Michael Strahan and his fiancé Nicole Murphy have ended their seven-year relationship. Personally, I seen it coming.
The news of their split was made public on the same day Strahan received his gold jacket during the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinees’ Dinner in Canton, Ohio. To make matters worse, sources have stated that Strahan had no idea Murphy would announce their breakup at that time. The question everyone is asking is “why did the seemingly happy couple split up?”
There are numerous reports that Murphy believed Strahan was being unfaithful and she has proof. An inside source stated “Nicole first got wind Michael might be dating another woman in early July and started investigating, and when she was finally convinced the allegation was true, Nicole immediately decided to go public with the split”.
Close friends of Strahan believed that either Murphy or someone close to her was trying to sabotage one of the biggest moments in his life. A spokesperson for Strahan told People magazine “They love each other very much, but with the distance and work schedule it has been hard to maintain the relationship”.
It’s no secret that majority of “reality stars” do not have successful relationships. I believe Murphy was definitely a example of that. She is part of the cast on the reality show Hollywood Exes. Although she does not “act out” like most of the other cast members tend to do, she is guilty by association. I believe Murphy is a beautiful and intelligent woman but her career in reality TV definitely put a strain on the relationship. Strahan has a certain “image” and I do not believe their lifestyles and career paths were compatible. I hope the two can move on from this.
