Donald Driver Makes His Pitch
With Maria Menounos
getting eliminated from Dancing with the Stars
, Packers wide receiver Donald Driver
finds himself in the final three and asks for the support of Hot Clicks Nation. Here's a brief Q&A I did with Driver about this situation.
: Hot Clicks has supported Maria Menounos all season, but, unfortunately, she is gone. Why should Hot Clicks Nation support Donald Driver?
: I've got three reasons: 1) Hot Clicks can introduce two future LLODs to your readers, my wife Betina, and my dance parter, Peta; 2) Because of this video
; 3) Because my charitable foundation
needs any exposure I can get from being in the finals.
: You're a Super Bowl champion. Why is winning Dancing with the Stars
so important to you?
: I have always watched this show with my wife and family. The exposure has been tremendous for my charitable foundation.
And now that I'm here, I may as well bring the mirror ball trophy to Titletown.
: Your partner on the show, Peta Murgatroyd
, is extremely-good looking, and sometimes the dances get risque.
Has this caused any problems on the homefront with the wife?
: First of all, I want to say that my wife is very hot, too. She's very cool about it. I would never want to embarrass or
disrespect my wife. So I've always asked Betina what she thinks about what I'm doing. She feels comfortable being at rehearsal and watching what I'm
going to do. She critiques me from the beginning of the rehearsal to the end of the rehearsal, and even when we get back home: "Baby, that?s not sexy
enough. It has to be this way. I think you should do it that way." Or, "Baby, that's not emotional. You?ve got to show your face more." She's always
my biggest critic, and that helps me, because I know if my wife is OK with it.
: How have your teammates reacted to your DWTS run? Have they been supportive? Have they ribbed you at all about it? Any good
comments you can share?
: My teammates have shown a lot of support
, and I really appreciated Aaron Rodgers
, Clay Matthews
and even Coach McCarthy
and Rob Davis
coming out to see me. James Jones
, Ryan Pickett
a number of other teammates have visited the show as well. My single teammates want to be introduced to Peta for a future date so they have to be
nice to me!
: There's a lot of speculation about your future on the field. If the Packers were to part ways with you, would you play for
: If "if" was a fifth, we'd all be drunk. I really don't deal in hypotheticals, and I'm just looking forward to getting back to
football as a Packer later this week!
