Erin Barry - Tony Parker Scandal: Further Proof Nothing Is Shocking Any Longer


water cooler logo

By now, everybody and their mother has chimed in about Erin Barry, the soon-to-be former wife of Brent Barry and also known as Tony Parker's alleged mistress. A few days ago, nobody really knew who Erin Barry was.

Now, she's the latest 15-minute celebrity and allegedly responsible for the breakup of not one, but two marriages. She and former San Antonio Spur Brent Barry are divorcing and Tony Parker and Eva Longoria are going to put an end to their 7-year relationship (including a 3-year marriage).

Just how did Brent Barry and Erin Barry (not Erin Berry) meet? The two were high school sweethearts having met when they were 16-years-old. They married in 1998.

Normally when we hear of affairs we brush them off, but this is not your normal affair. It is involving former teammates on an NBA team and resulting in the end of two marriages including one of the highest profile marriages in America.

In this day and age nothing shocks Americans any longer.
