Yesterday I received these pics in an email from Patrice Horton over at TuffLuv Management who represents NFL player James Hardy. But by the time I received the pics my day was already over.

I broke the story right here on Sandrarose.com that James Hardy and reality TV personality Toya Carter had split up. So Honey magazine immediately reached out to the new bachelor for a fashion spread.

We know that James Hardy is all man so why would he allow himself to look sooo gay in these pictures? There is no reason on God’s green earth why a man should have on this much makeup. I’m just being real.

Sometimes you have to tell the makeup artist to go easy on the brush. My suggestion to ball players who don’t want to look light on their feet in a photo shoot, is to ask for a mirror before the photo shoot begins. If you can’t see your skin through the makeup, ask the makeup artist to do it over with less foundation.

Don’t just take the makeup artist’s word for it. To them, more is always better. You’re a man and there is no reason for a man to look more made up than B. Scott.

By the way, the photographer is Rob Ector who studied under Derek Blanks. How Y’all Doin?!

NFL star (and beau of Antonia “Toya” Carter) James Hardy writes:

I am shocked and disappointed by people’s efforts to destroy my character. I am a God-fearing man, and I would never place my hands on the mother of my child or my son. In fact, my son has been an inspiration to me and to my accomplishments and I hold deep respect for my former girlfriend for raising my son. As in many relationships, my ex-girlfriend and I had an argument that was blown out of proportion. My ex-girlfriend called the police and I was arrested. As a student athlete, I did not have the money to defend myself in a criminal trial; therefore, I agreed to take part in a six-month diversion program.

As a result, the charges were dismissed and at the hearing on June 13, 2007, my ex-girlfriend recanted her statements and testified that she phoned 911 in an effort to “get at” me for the problems we were having in the relationship at the time. During the time of the incident, our relationship was being affected due to my hectic athletic schedule.This incident took place three years ago when I was a college student at Indiana University.

Currently, I am a professional athlete who realizes that children look up to me and that I have a duty to conduct myself appropriately. As partners in parenting, my ex-girlfriend and I maintain an amicable relationship. I have moved on and am happy with my life. Despite the negative media coverage, I am striving to achieve my maximum potential in life and focus on my career.

Sincerely,
James Hardy
