Tiki Barber’s homewrecking mistress-turned-wife Traci Lynn Johnson just doesn’t understand why the public has such a negative opinion of her.
Appearing on the magazine “Metropolis Nights,” which boasts the honor of being “New Jersey’s Nightlife and Entertainment Magazine,” Johnson says “I have a lot more haters than I do lovers.”
The 23-year-old former ‘Today Show’ intern, who reportedly hooked up with Barber in his agent’s attic while his wife and the mother of his two children was expecting twins, says she was shocked by the negative attention her relationship with Barber received.
“I was shocked by all the media attention my relationship with Tiki got,” she tells the mag in the cover story and accompanying bikini spread. “The tabloids love to write about celebrity divorces. Everyone else in the country gets divorced of breaks up with their boyfriend and nobody cares. When things bad happen, they love to exploit us.”
Barber filed for divorce from his ex-wife Ginni in April of 2010. She gave birth to their twin daughters the next month.
And Traci Lynn says she hasn’t ruled out babies with her famous husband, calling them “our ‘maybe babies’.”
For now, Johnson is focusing on the positive and is brushing off her naysayers.
“The people who keep saying all these negative things about me don’t know me at all,” she said. “They just hate their life more, so it’s easy for them to hate me instead of dealing with their own problems.”
