On Football Sunday, Our Eyes Are on the Fabulous NFL Wife Jessie James Decker


View Photo Gallery

Jessie James Decker is pint-sized and fabulous. We fell in love with the Southern belle on the E! series, Eric & Jessie: Game On, and have seen how the unapologetic country singer has come to have it all: a gorgeous NFL husband (New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker), a beautiful baby daughter, a successful music career, and burgeoning beauty and clothing lines. But it wasn’t always easy. VH1 recently sat down with the New York transplant — who still likes going to Cracker Barrel — and learned the story of a simple country gal who rose to fame.

Allow us to help you get a peak into Jessie’s world and see what she has to say about the ups and downs of being married to a professional athlete and letting the cameras into her everyday life.

VH1: Were you a big football fan before you started dating Eric?
I wasn’t the biggest fan because I grew up in so many different places; I never was really able to attach myself to a team, but as soon as I started dating Eric I immediately was asking every question that you could imagine. Even the most annoying, like: “What happens if all three quarterbacks get injured? Who goes in?! What do you do?”

What are the pros and cons of being married to an NFL player?
I think the pros are everything — it is so much fun to be a part of something so exciting. And I’m impressed by him every time he’s on the field. He’s such an athlete and God gave him talent and he works his butt off. The con: You never want to see your loved one get hurt. That would be so scary, right?

What’s your favorite New York City activity?
What is not my favorite thing to do here?! The food, the shopping, I mean we’ve already seen a show. Everything is incredible and I feel so blessed to be here.

I feel like people from New York City get a bad reputation, don’t you think?
I never heard about a bad reputation, [but New Yorkers] tell it like it is and I actually like that. I don’t want anything sugarcoated – tell it to my face, tell it to me straight.

How are you adjusting from previously living in Denver?
For me, it was actually an adjustment to go to Denver. Being from the South, I was like a fish out of water in Denver. I was familiar with New York because I was signed to Island Def Jam, so I came here all the time. I was excited to come back in a way even though I never lived here. The people are incredible. It just feels like everything is meant to be. We love everything about this city.

You and Eric have what seems like such a solid, grounded relationship. What’s your love advice for the average person?
I would never, ever settle. That is my biggest thing and I always say it. I’ve seen so many friends of mine who are on the verge of divorce now because they just got married like, “Well, he’ll do.” You will end up in divorce. You need to marry someone that is your soul mate, that you’re obsessed with, and never ignore that. People make fun of me all the time. They’re like, “Not everything’s gonna be perfect,” well it is in my world. And it should be. Because you deserve it.

Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis: Football Fans

Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis: Football Fans

Parents-to-be Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis shared a fun shot via Twitter.

“Go Bears #noexcuses #win #SUPERBOWLBOUND,” the actor, 36, captioned a photo of him and his glowing fiancée as they each hold up a No. 1 with their fingers.

The lovebirds got into the NFL spirit ahead of the Chicago Bears and Buffalo Bills game Sunday morning.

Last month, we spotted the Jupiter Ascending star – and her burgeoning baby bump – at prenatal yoga.

The actress, 31, recently opened up about having her fiancé in the delivery room.

“Two people are allowed in my delivery room. My doctor and my significant other,” she shared. “And he is staying above the action. He’ll be head to head. Not head to vag. Unless he wants to risk his life and see. But I wouldn’t if I were him. I highly doubt he wants to see that being ripped apart and shredded. Because it will be shredded. It’s just a matter of how badly.”

We can’t wait to hear their exciting news!

Harley Pasternak is a celebrity trainer and nutrition expert who has worked with stars from Halle Berry and Lady Gaga to Robert Pattinson and Robert Downey Jr. He’s also a New York Times best-selling author, with titles including The Body Reset Diet and The 5-Factor Diet. Tweet him @harleypasternak.

It’s the week many Americans have been waiting for: the NFL season officially starts on Thursday! And whether you’re on three different fantasy teams or can only name the celebrity girlfriends of certain players, you can’t escape football fever.

As a tribute, I thought I’d come up with a few gridiron-inspired moves to train your whole body, just like the pros use. Check out the easy-to-follow Vine videos below:

Burpees. Burpees are a classic move for a good reason — they really hit your whole body.

Jump Squat. This move is a must among athletes who need to develop explosive movement. For non-athletes, it’s an amazing toning move that really gets the whole lower body working.

Spiderman Plank. This variation on a traditional plank really activates the whole core — the rectus abdominals as well as the obliques. (Avoid the temptation to stick your butt in the air, especially as you really start to feel the burn.)

Quick Feet. This is a move you can do anywhere — at your desk, in front of the TV during a game — that will be sure to get your heart rate going! Get as low in that squat as you can and try to go faster and faster.

Walkout (a.k.a. Inchworm). This move my not look like much, but it strengthens your core, arms and thighs while increasing flexibility.

Wind Sprints. Recent research suggests that short-duration, high-intensity workouts may be better for us than longer, lower intensity workouts. That’s where our old friends the wind sprints come into play (remember these from gym class?). If you have bad knees, avoid hard stops and turns and do one-directional sprints instead.

Lateral Squat Shuffle. This classic drill will fire up your glutes, hamstrings, quads and can really help strengthen your hips. Stay in a squat the whole time, keep your back straight (no hunching) and look forward rather than at your feet.

Erin Andrews: Why ‘I Feel Like a Spy’ During Football Games

Erin Andrews is a sports reporter, TV personality and, now, a super sleuth?

The Fox Sports broadcaster reveals the sly skill that helps her get the scoop on the sidelines in the September issue of Health magazine, on newsstands Friday.

“I feel like a spy half the time,” she says. “In the NFL, we can’t report on injuries until the NFL has said what the injury is, but I hear so much stuff, like, in the huddles, a player saying, ‘I just ripped my knee – I’m done.’ I’ve gotten really good at lipreading, and my boyfriend hates that!”

Andrews, 36, flexed a different set of skills in her first season as co-host of Dancing with the Stars – though that gig put her under even more public scrutiny, with viewers criticizing her looks.

“It’s hard when somebody says something and you want to put them in their spot,” she says of Twitter haters. “I’ve gotten ‘You look like Brad Pitt’ or that I look like a bird, and I’m just like, ‘Really?’ “

“I recently Tweeted a photo of a David Yurman ring I was wearing, and I didn’t have any moisturizer on, and they were like, ‘Your hands look like the old lady from

Though the stunning sportscaster is confident in her naturally good looks (she feels most sexy “in a sweatshirt and a pair of boy shorts”), she admits she wouldn’t be opposed to some cosmetic tweaks down the line.

“I’ve never done it, but I’m curious about all of it. I’ve seen great work, and I think we’ve all seen bad,” she says of plastic surgery. “I’m sure there will be a time in my life when I’ll want to look into it, but it’s just not right now.”
