Dale Jr. Is A Homewrecker


I don't know if I have ever had any good NASCAR gossip. Well that is changing now thanks to Dale Earnhardt Jr. The National Enquirer is reporting that Dale Jr. broke up the marriage of the woman he is now dating and her then husband, who is a coach for the University of Kentucky football team.

"Dale Earnhardt stole my wife!" Yep, that is all he really had to say about it. His father did chime in and agreed with what The Enquirer is reporting. And what does Dale Jr. have to say about the whole thing? Nothing actually. Well, I am sure that will change.

hillbilly drama! i love this.

timebob said...

I always wondered if Jr. was gay. He was never really attached to anyone.

Hilary said...

Finally- something I can report to my boyfriend that will interest him!

Mr Pink said...

You can steal a car, or a garden gnome...you can't steal a spouse. It takes two. And she was the one in the relationship. She takes most of the blame in my book.

Icecat said...

It's funny, I don't care one way or the other about NASCAR or Dale Jr.. But I heard a radio interview with him and he seemed so nice and down to earth.. Who'd a thunk?

And agree'd with Mr. Pink - It takes two to tango!!

Vikingwench said...

I TOTALLY agree with Mr Pink.

I just saw him in a state farm commercial with his, wife. Guess he's a double homewrecker.

Alison said...

I'd be pissed if someone stole my gnome.

Ashlea - that isn't his wife - that's his sister (and no that isn't a hillbilly joke!)

I never would have imagined this of Junior. He seems like a nice guy who is put out there as the poster boy for NASCAR because of who his dad was. As a driver he's merely ok, but there's a lot of pressure on him. He usually does all the right things, so this is really a surprise.

I can tell you that you won't hear a peep out of him regarding this story. The boy doesn't speak about this stuff. He barely talks to the NASCAR press about a race, he is not going to talk about this new tomato and her ex-husband! The good-ole-boys never play the gossip game! Reasons why I love NASCAR!

I've met Dale Jr. and he is a very nice guy.

He's been seeing this woman for two years. It's not a secret. She's been separated from her husband that long.

Apparently, she wasn't married too long when she caught Dale's eye. Not a great situation, but she's the one who was married.

Dale never talks about his personal life. He's had a few girlfriends, but he doesn't flaunt them in the press. I think that's a good thing!

He's very close with his mom and sister and treats women with respect. Makes you wonder what kinda man the chick's husband is, hm?

Syd said...

I don't think I've ever seen him with a GF at all. This surprises me.

Kristen S. said...

He said he'd like to have kids but not be married. I love that honesty, especially given his fanbase.

Anyways, NASCAR has had plenty of good gossip - Scott Wimmer & Shane Hmiel come to mind. Jeff Gordon's divorce was a big scandal.

And when Michael Waltrip comes out (or is outed), that will be big news!

nunaurbiz said...

Kristen is right. NASCAR is rampant with juicy rumors! There is a handful of gfs who have shared a driver or two ... or three ...

Tony Stewart is involved in a bit of a scandal know with a young gal who is a driver. Is he her mentor? Or is he something more, hmmmm, Smoke?

Sometimes the WAGS even bare their claws at each other!

You guys don't know what you're missing by not following NASCAR ;-)

As for not seeing women with Dale, it doesn't mean he's gay. It means he knows any woman who shows up on his arm is subject to great scrutiny by Junior Nation, which has been the case here, even though he doesn't parade her around on pit road or at awards ceremonies.

MizCaramel said...

I thought yay I have something to share with the husband... he doesn't care...

I think he's only 33% responsible, I've learned you never know what goes on between 2 people. Her hubby could have been a "Dick" for all we know.

Rhonda said...

OMG - a gossip topic where I actually know stuff...the girl and the graduate assistant coach were high school sweethearts. She followed him to Kentucky while he was a football player and they got married while they were in college. He was a decent receiver but got hurt. Most people could tell she was pissed she wasn't going to be an NFL wife. Then nobody heard from them for a while after he graduated. He wasn't coaching and wasn't interested in coaching despite being offered the UK GA spot every year since he left, but accepted it this year because his wife had left him. Dale Jr. paid his now ex-wife's legal fees and they are divorced. Dale Jr. did break up their marriage but the wife was no angel in the process either. The ex-husband is a nice guy.

Here's a link to a NASCAR gossip site, which has a photo of Amy and Dale:

As the insiders say: But it is still interesting to hear the husband come forward ... Junior and Amy have done a fairly decent job of keeping their relationship from the public eye for about year and a half ... until now?

Cheryl said...

There's lots of NASCAR gossip often started by other drivers rabid fans. There used to be a website devoted to gay gossip about Jeff Gordon's Rainbow Warriors. I think the same sort of thing happened to Jr. at some point.

MCH said...

Ooh juicy! I'll have to tell my DH, who, much to my dismay does follow this sport. Oh and I want the gossip on Jeff Gordon please!

ChasingHeaven said...

I hope they have wimpy babies together and name them Dr. Quinn and Medicine Woman.

cgroncki said...

this explains why Dale jr is not focusing on his racing because he is with a bimbow who is only with him because of his money and popularity. He really needs to dump her and get back to his winning ways on the track and find someone that has no baggage.
