Deion Sanders may not be the first man you’d think to go to for advice, but he delivered some sound knowledge — and hope — to us when we got a chance to talk with him at OWN’s offices in New York. Deion was there to talk about the next season of his reality show, “Deion’s Family Playbook,” and as he gushed over his new lady, Tracey Edmonds, and refused to slander his ex-wife Pilar, he also offered some wisdom to women still waiting for “the one” to come along. Trust us, you’ll want to hear these words of encouragement.

Check out the video above as Deion talks about being a single father, dating, and issues in the NFL. What do you think?

Pilar and Deion Sanders have been officially divorced for quite some time now. But apparently, the aftermath still lingers. According to TMZ, the former “Football Wives” star is still making attempts to have their prenup judgement overturned.

Her most recent stunt to have the ruling overturned reportedly included claims that United States laws should not apply to her because she’s now a Moorish National Aboriginal, Indigenous Natural Person. In short, the former model, who now goes by the name Pilar Biggers Sanders Love El-Dey, claims she’s only subject to Moroccan law now. In the court documents, she went on to state that she’s now affiliated with the Moorish Divine and National Movement of the World.

Unsurprisingly, her appeal was dismissed, even prior to this recent filing. However, for some reason, she reportedly believes the new development will breathe life back into her case.

We’re not really sure what Pilar has been up to lately, but it appears that she may be going off of the deep end. Hopefully, everything is okay with her.

Celebrities continue to prove they’re regular people just like the rest of us, unfortunately in some of the worst ways possible. When it comes to these celebs with child support drama it took a judge to get them to cough up cash for their kids. Were they to blame or were the mothers of their children asking for too much?

Nas

Nas was happy to take himself off of the market and marry singer Kelis but that marriage soon went up in flames. In December 2009, the Queensbridge rapper was ordered to pay the R&B singer $51,000 a month in alimony and child support, but the bad economy worked in Nas’ favor and 13 months later he was able to convince the judge that his payments should be lowered. Even though at one point Nas was in arrears and owed Kelis more than $300,000 in back child support, the judge agreed to lower his payments to $20,000 a month in alimony and $5,000 in child support.

Last month we told you that OWN had officially picked up Deion Sanders’ new family friendly reality show, “Deion’s Family Playbook.” As previously reported, the series will document the life of the former NFL and MLB player as he juggles his family life, professional life and his long distance relationship with girlfriend, Tracey Edmonds.

“[Deion's Family Playbook] is the hilarious and compelling real life story of Deion Sanders, the football legend, baseball great, broadcaster, Hall of Famer, international superstar, businessman, educator and father, as he strives to keep all the facets of his complicated, crazy and chaotic life in balance and under control,” the show’s press release reads

“Deion faces the challenges of raising his five children in a household that also includes his mother, her foster children and his aunt and uncle, while guiding the future of Prime Prep Academy, the charter school he created to try to make a lasting impact on the lives of children in under served areas. He plays the role of father, leader, bread-winner, coach and teacher for everyone around him. And in those rare instances when he gets a little overwhelmed, his girlfriend, producer and businesswoman Tracey Edmonds, who has two sons of her own, is there to help pick up the slack.”

OWN recently released a trailer and a couple of teasers for the show, which is slated to debut on March 1 and it looks like it has the potential to be pretty entertaining. In addition to Deion’s children, who all have pretty big personalities, viewers will get to witness the retired professional athlete interact with his girlfriend, Tracey.

“You gon’ marry me one day, baby,” he asks Tracey in the trailer.

Her response to that question, of course, is not included in the clip, but nosy folks like us are dying to know what her response is, especially since the two have both been married before in the past.

Check out the trailer for “Deion’s Family Playbook” below. Turn the page to see a couple more previews from the show.

Deion Sanders Accused Of Choking Prep School Employee

Well ladies, we have bad news and good news. The bad news is that Deion Sanders is making negative headlines yet again. The good news is that his latest scandal does not involve his ex-wife, Pilar Sanders. According to Dallas Morning News, yesterday an altercation occurred at Deion’s educational institute, Prim Prep School, between him and an employee named Kevin Jefferson.

The circumstances surround what led to the altercation are not 100% clear, but reports suggest that Deion was unhappy about the grades of some of his student athletes. Kevin accuses Deion of choking him after they got into a verbal disagreement during a faculty meeting.

“He was a little upset and a little emotional. He walked back to the back of the classroom to where I was sitting in a desk. As he got closer to me, I stood up because he was kind of standing over me and he just kind of kept talking to me and at me and then he just grabbed me by my throat and kind of threw me to the ground. Some people had to get him off of me. I’m going to pursue my options with my attorney. I just think it’s unacceptable in a professional environment particularly at a school for that kind of behavior to go on.”

Kevin says that he immediately spoke to police and went to the hospital to treat any injuries he sustained during the incident. He also claims that prior to this isolated altercation, he has never had any other confrontations with Deion. Deion has since taken to Twitter to defend himself against the allegations.

 

 

 

 

Deion also spoke to WFAA-TV’s Brett Shipp about the incident.

“Mr. Jefferson was not beat down. He was not beat up. He was not hit. He was none of that. Mr. Jefferson and I got into a confrontation about the welfare of these kids. And we’ll get into another one. Until you start taking care of these kids, I’ll going to be on a rampage. Until we start serving these kids in Dallas like the kids are served in Fort Worth, and better, I’m going to be on the same rampage, because the teachers are frustrated. We’re frustrated,” Deion said during a phone interview.

Well, if nothing else, we certainly smell a lawsuit brewing.

Pilar Can’t Be Happy About This: Deion Sanders Gets New OWN Reality Show

"Deion Sanders and Tracey Edmonds pf"

I just know Pilar is somewhere fuming. I can just hear her now You mean to tell me you’re doing a reality show with the new chick?! I was your WIFE…” Naw, I’m just kidding I don’t know that lady. And while she might not be livid, I’m sure she feels a type of way about her husband heading back to reality tv with his girlfriend Tracey E. Edmonds (Babyface’s and then Eddie Murphy’s ex wife).

Just today OWN announced the new lineup of shows for 2014 and look whose name showed up. None other than Mr. Prime Time himself, former football player, baseball player, rapper and sports analyst Deion Sanders.

Can’t really say I’m surprised, Deion can’t stay out of the limelight. You may remember he and Pilar had their own reality show in 2008 called “Deion and Pilar: Prime Time Love.”

Anyway, this is how the network describes the new show tentatively titled “It’s Prime Time” (That moniker is clearly not going anywhere any time soon.):

It’s Prime’s Time (working title) is the hilarious and compelling real life story of Deion Sanders, the football legend, baseball great, broadcaster, Hall of Famer, international superstar, businessman, educator and father, as he strives to keep all the facets of his complicated, crazy and chaotic life in balance and under control. Deion faces the challenges of raising his five children in a household that also includes his mother, her foster children and his aunt and uncle, while guiding the future of Prime Prep Academy, the charter school he created to try to make a lasting impact on the lives of children in underserved areas. He plays the role of father, leader, bread-winner, coach and teacher for everyone around him. And in those rare instances when he gets a little overwhelmed, his girlfriend, producer and businesswoman Tracey Edmonds, who has two sons of her own, is there to help pick up the slack. The series is produced by Edmonds Entertainment, Prime Time Media Ventures and Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate. Executive producers are Eli Frankel, Tracey E. Edmonds and Deion Sanders.

Initially, I was surprised to hear that Tracey Edmonds would abandon her role behind the camera and let people film her, but seeing that she’s producing the show it only makes sense. She’s another one who stays hustling. Apparently, she doesn’t seem to be worried about the reality tv relationship curse.

This seems interesting as we all know Deion is a character. Since the children are going to be in the show, wonder if their mother Pilar will make an appearance. Ha! Doubt it.

What do you think about this, is it a good idea? Will you watch?

Pilar Sanders’ Publicist Quits, Joins Team Deion And Slaps Her With A $180K Lawsuit

Almost anytime Pilar Sanders made headlines for her tumultuous relationship with her estranged husband Deion, their dramatic child custody battle or their bitter divorce, Pilar’s “friend” and publicist, Kali Bowyer, was in some way, shape or form on the scene, defending her client. The two were even working on a tell-all book together about Pilar’s alleged abusive relationship with Deion titled, Saving Sanders: The Pilar Sanders Untold Story. It appears that this is all about to change though. A couple of weeks ago, Bowyer released an official statement to Rhymes With Snitch, announcing her resignation as Pilar’s publicist. She claims she resigned because Pilar provided her with “several falsehoods” while they were collaborating for her upcoming tell-all. An excerpt from her statement reads:

“I have officially resigned as the publicist for Ms. Pilar Sanders; it became evident that Pilar was providing me with falsehoods, via a multitude of sources and documents that have been brought to my attention…

I had the pleasure of speaking directly to Mr. Deion Sanders over the weekend, a man who truly showed his character to me during that conversation. Sadly, all I can say is what a horrific situation Pilar has placed her children in and thankfully, they are safe, well provided for and protected now.

As for the coming weeks, I will continue to forward the appropriate information and documentation to Deion’s camp. In addition, a copy of the book will be provided to Mr. Sanders prior to publishing to assure the validity of some sections.”

Not only is Kali cooperating with “Team Deion,”  but according to Rumor Fix, she is also suing Pilar for $180,000 over 10 months of work and loss of commissions “because she flaked on deals.”

“After a long week of thought, I have agreed with my lawyers to file suit against Pilar, not only for the position she has placed me in publicly but also personally and professionally,” Kali said in a statement.

Ouch!

Does any of this surprise you at all?

Back in April we told you that Pilar Sanders has partnered up with her longtime friend and publicist, Kali Bowyer to pen an über detailed tell-all book about the alleged violent years Sanders spent with her estranged husband Deion. As previously reported, the book is titled, Saving Sanders: The Pilar Sanders Untold Story and will be written by BowyerMara over at 4UMF has acquired an excerpt from the book- and let’s just say, the ladies are pulling no punches.

In one shocking excerpt, Kali claims that there was a time that Pilar was unable to feed her son and that Deion simply turned his back on them.

“While Pilar was living out of the hotel those few months, scraping by day-to-day. Now don’t get me wrong, she was not staying at some dive – quite the opposite. We had been on the phone talking for quite sometime that day when I heard her son call his father and say to him, ‘Daddy, I’m hungry, and mommy has no money for food.’ After a silent pause, Deion replied to his son, ‘You can eat when I see you next week.’”

In another excerpt, Kali recounts Pilar’s emotional reaction to her children being taken away.

“I’ll never forget the night my phone rang at around 3:30 am. I had answereddead out of my sleep to hear just uncontrollable sobbing from a heartbroken Pilar, who could only mutter the words, ‘Kal, he took my babies.’ As I sat there and cried with her, she was completely devastated and blown away. I do not think this was something she ever imagined in a million years could happen to her. It had been a rough few months – doing my best to combat every attack Deion made. Watching my friend die inside, I refused to sit back at let this happen. I promised Pilar that I would fight for her.”

She also touched on Pilar and Deion’s alleged domestic violence dispute.

“The headline making argument – a joke is more like it. What did not make the headlines is how Deion attempted to kill Pilar by picking up a statue in a fit of rage and hitting her over the head. Thank God her childhood best friend Dee was present in the house to witness the entire fight. After Dee jumped in to try to help Pilar, Deion responded by punching her in the face.”

Saving Sanders is slated to hit shelves fall 2013.
