Romo’s wife chats with Khloe Kardashian

Baby names, the
Dallas media and watching her husband quarterback the Cowboys were a few topics
that Candice Crawford-Romo discussed recently on Khloe Kardashian-Odom’s radio
While the two women were talking about being married to professional Dallas
athletes the topic of trades came up. Kardashian-Odom’s husband, Mavericks
forward Lamar Odom, was traded to the Mavericks prior to the start of this season,
forcing the couple to leave their Los Angeles home.

Crawford-Romo said she has had conversations with her husband, Cowboys
quarterback Tony Romo , about what they would do if he was moved to another NFL
team. Like Kardashian-Odom, the 25-year-old said she would move with her
husband if that situation ever occurred.

“Yeah, we talk about it,” Crawford-Romo said. “We talk about if
it was ever to happen because it’s such a reality, especially in the
pro-athlete world.”

Romo, who is under contract with the Cowboys through the 2013 season, receives
as much media attention as any athlete in the area, and his wife, who has
worked as a television sports reporter in Dallas, understands the business.

“I guess LA’s such a big media hub too, but the criticism that comes with
being an athlete here in Dallas, the Cowboys get it quite a bit,” she
explained to Kardashian-Odom.

Most of the media criticism depends on how well the Cowboys are performing. Those
outcomes have a way of playing a role in the lives of the players’ wives.
Basically, if the Cowboys win, life is good in the Romo household.

However, the two women went on to briefly describe what it’s like after a loss.
Kardashian-Odom says it ruins the whole day. For Crawford-Romo, it affects the
whole week.

“The losses truly affect you,” Crawford-Romo said. “It’s harder
sometimes I think on the spouses and the family members to watch because you see
them work so hard and be so passionate about stuff.”

Here are a few other highlights of Crawford-Romo’s comments on “The Mix Up
With Khloe” on Mix 102.9 in Dallas [KDMX-FM].

On watching her husband play on Sundays:

“When Tony’s playing I feel like it’s almost like a different person. I
always describe it as going to work with daddy. You know that your dad’s a
doctor, teacher, whatever, but you don’t really know what he’s like in his work
environment and then you go to work with him and you’re like, ‘That’s not my
dad. I don’t get this guy.’ With Tony, I see him playing on the field and I’m
like, ‘That’s not Tony. I don’t understand who this person is.’ It’s such a
different human.” 

On baby names [Crawford-Romo is seven months pregnant]:

“It’s a boy so we’re looking at boy names, but we haven’t come to a
conclusion yet. It’s funny because during football season I don’t think I even
acknowledged my pregnancy until it was done because it takes over your

On why she was hoping their first child would be a boy:

“Lord willing, Tony gets to play for another three years, if he doesn’t
get hurt or whatever. If we had a 3-year-old, they can go to the games and have
those memories. … [Jason Witten’s sons] are 3 and 5 and they go to all the
games and they wear their little daddy jerseys, and so they have those
memories. Not that a girl couldn’t because I’m sure she would have those too.
It’s just different to have your little son there.”
