Troy And Catherine Aikman Got Divorced, As Only Evidenced By Kissy Vacation Pics His New Girlfriend Posted
Back in the 1990s, when the Dallas Cowboys were considered deities to many, quarterback Troy Aikman was hailed as one of the most impressive of the bunch–by Sandra Bullock and people who were into football. I was always more fascinated by his facial skin, sclera, and lips, which were curiously the same hue. But he’s still pretty public-facing today as an ESPN Monday Night Football commentator, so it was a little unexpected that he and his now ex-wife, Catherine “Capa” Aikman, never announced that they divorced a while back. And now, everyone’s just finding out about it only because Troy’s new, much younger girlfriend, Haley Clark, posted pics of the two kissin’ and caressin’ on vacation.
Can you blame her? Look at that face; no wonder his nickname is The Questionable Panty-Dropper (it is not). Even though Troy Aikman has the face of a man who eats every meal at Outback Steakhouse (I don’t know what that means either, just go with it) you can’t blame Sandy Bullock for getting back with a familiar ex-piece. It’s kind of a perfect arrangement: you already know what they like sex-wise, and when it ends it – and it will end – you just sort of shrug your shoulders and go “Meh, we tried”.
In case you don’t remember these two dating, let me paint you a picture. The year was 1995. Troy was a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, Sandy was fresh off the success of Speed, and I was living the high life in my parent’s basement wearing out my VHS copy of Dumb and Dumber. But like all good things (RIP Dumb and Dumber tape) their relationship eventually came to an end. However, according to Closer (via Inquisitr) Sandy might have climbed into the Way Back machine and set it to 1995, because the two are allegedly seeing each other again:
An inside source told the British publication Closer: “Sandra and Troy have always got on well, but she doesn’t want to publicly date him until she’s 100 per cent ready for a relationship. She’s also worried about getting her heart broken, so a no-strings fling is fine, but she’s not committing to anything yet.”
On top of that, Sandra Bullock also wants to look after the best interests of her adopted son Louis. The source revealed: “Sandra hasn’t introduced Troy to Louis as anything other than mommy’s friend.”
It feels like everywhere I look people are furiously trying to make the 90s happen (Miley being public enemy no.1) so of course it’s going to extend to relationships. First it’s Sandy and Troy, next it could be Jennifer Aniston cutting her new hair into The Rachel to lure back Tate Donovan. And god help Brad Pitt if Gwyneth Paltrow catches wind that it’s trendy to get back with your ex from 1995 (“Daddy, why is there a strange blonde skeleton who smells like organic cold-pressed lemongrass juice skulking around outside the windows?”)
