Antonio Cromartie won’t do reality show about his 10 kids by 8 women

Antonio Cromartie and his wife just had their second child, but you won’t be seeing as much of them as as one TV production company was hoping.

In addition to the two children he has with his wife, Cromartie has eight other children by seven other women. And the New York Post reports that Cromartie nixed a plan for a reality show chronicling his life, as well as the lives of his children and their mothers, who are spread across the country in six different states.

Cromartie has been burned before when reality TV focused on his family life: HBO’s Hard Knocks showed Cromartie appearing to have trouble remembering his children’s names, although Cromartie said afterward that the show’s producers asked him to list his children slowly, and that the whole thing was done to make him look bad.

But while Cromartie doesn’t want anything to do with the reality show, the mothers of his children are eager to do it. Ryan Ross, the mother of Cromartie’s fifth child, told the Post that she thinks doing the show would allow Cromartie’s children to gain a better understanding of their half-siblings.

“I love it,” Ross said. “Our kids need to know who their siblings are. It’s bigger than our past with Antonio. It’s about our children.”

In addition to the two kids with his wife, Cromartie has custody of one of his other children. Child support payments to the other six mothers total more than a quarter of a million dollars a year.

  1. MAN THIS TURD IS MY IDOL !!!! IVE BEEN WITH THE SAME GAL FOR 18 YEARS. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG ????

  2. Good for him. This is actually a good decision. The moms are just gold diggers. They should be satisfied with the child support

    My intelligence is officially insulted. Ms. Ross, you don’t need a reality show for your children to get to know each other. We all know you’re smelling dollar signs.

  4. Correction: seeing dollar signs. Obviously, I don’t have much intelligence to be insulted.

  5. Yeah, it’s all about the children. That’s like a banker saying he loans money for the love of the community.

  6. Sad to say that he is in the wrong profession, with the amount of money he has to pay in child support. Yea obviously the more you make the more you get stroked, but i’d rather be working at a 9-5 paying child support and taking care of my kids on reasonable payments. The majority of this money is for the women to shop and spend on themselves is the sad part. If he isnt broke already he will be the day he retires. Talk about absolutley needing to work, did he finish college i cant remeber? If not he better find a damn good job after football. If they reduce his pay after his playing days or over it will be good for him if not I hope he has a good plan.

    When did the word “children” become synonymous with money?

  8. Obviously he never learned about the concept of “pulling out”. I pulled out hundreds, if not thousands, of times and still no bastard child!

  9. “250k a year in child support? This guy is screwed once he gets out of the NFL.”

    Pun pardoned, but it’s most likely his children which will be most affected. Hopefully he is smart with the money he has made so far, to ensure his kids are taken care of until they’re 18.

    When he retires, he should start a plumbing company…

  10. He’s MARRIED on top of all that?! How do you break the news that you are single-handedly raising the nation’s birth rate to her? How is she good with that? Wow…

  11. Cromartie has three years maximum ( and I’m being kind) collecting an NFL paycheck.
    If anyone has watched any interview with Cromartie knows he has worked his last job in the NFL(what an idiot) and his off spring /mamas will be collecting welfare for many years to come.

    If he is nice to Tom Brady, maybe TB will let him pitch a tent on the property of his new mansion in LA and also cut his grass ??

  12. Scumbag…..he will be out of the NFL in 3-4 years an in jail shortly after that, I think we all know that

  13. Mz. Ross sais its about their children? If you were a responsible parent you would have given the child a stable family and home life, not a dad who can’t remember their names. Lets hope she closes the baby factory. You’ll be out of business when he retires anyway, as will he.

  14. To each his own. If he wants to live like that I couldn’t be happier for him. What will anger me will be when I am reading an article 10 years from now on pft about how broke tbis guy is and that he is millions behind in child support. He will be blaming his financial woes on a bad financial advisor or a real estate deal gone wrong. Hey antonio you will have nobody to blame for the misery that is waiting for you other than yourself. The bad news for you is that all of the concussion lawsuits will be settled by then. Maybe you should join the suit now seeing that is how all these former players are trying to solve their financial hardships at the nfls expense

  15. If I ever invent a time machine, one of the first orders of business is going back about 10 years….and gorilla gluing a rubber to his dangler.

  16. 250,000 a year for 7 kids, and he makes millions per year. Sounds like he is getting off really easy. 3K per child per month is really cheap. I pay 2K a month on a 65k salary.

  17. “Back then we didn’t have these fancy birth control methods. Like pullin’ out!”- Pops (Jack Warden character) Dirty Work (1998)

  18. “the New York Post reports that Cromartie nixed a plan for a reality show chronicling his life”. Thank God!!!

  19. He can do a reality show with the one running back that has 7 kids by 7 different women and Shawn Kemp can referee.

    You know what they call a guy who practices the “pull out” method as a form of birth control ?
    DAD!!!

  21. If you don’t know who’s your daddy, answering “Antonio Cromartie” is as good an answer as any. Kinda like answering “C” on the SATs.

    All jokes aside, this guy’s broke in 10 years.

  22. That any of these mothers would want to do a television series exploiting her child with Cromartie is a good indication that his partners’ characters weren’t any better than his. It takes two, and the women who gave birth to all these children with Antonio Appleseed are just as irresponsible as he is. Now that he’s married, raising three of his children, and paying child support for the rest, it’s good to know he’s at least developed the horse sense to turn down this project.

  23. “Antonio, meet Mr. Sapp.” “Mr. Sapp, meet Antonio.” It’s as if there is an underground training camp for some pros to LEARN how to bankrupt themselves. To the person who was wondering if A.C. graduated, I remember an article years ago that delved into Fl. St. football players , uncovering how many REALLY poor students were on the roster. One of the things they found out was that Antonio basically could not READ. The blueprint to failure continues. N.C.A.A. …another word for JOKE.

  24. that 250k is going to be problem when he retires. WTF, too bad for him and too bad for the kids, the women better get in gear fast – wonder if they work ?

  25. No wonder he won’t tackle anybody! He needs to be around for another 18 years till all his chillins are grown up.. Wait.. Maybe he should start practicing his field goals! What a D-Bag…

  26. One more kid and he’ll have enough for an entire starting offense that will probably be better then what the Jets currently have.

    Pulling out of your hand doesn’t count – even if you did it “thousands” of time…

  28. This looks to be one of the rare times this guy has made a good decision in life. Nothing positive could come from doing a TV show like that. He would basically be putting himself out there to be ridiculed. Theyre looking to play off the fact that this guy cant even keep track of the kids names.

    Its sad in a way. This guy has a few years left in the NFL and then what? He has a ton of child support to pay and even though he has no one but himself to blame, its the kids that are going to suffer when he retires and has no way to provide for all of them. Who gives some of these guys advice? You would think after the first couple someone would sit him down and tell him to use protection. Unreal

  29. Wow there is a african american idol for all the kids to look up to . I wonder what his wonderlick score was ? Someone should be clipping his nutz before he turns into jonny appleseed . Typical for a athlete to have no common sense .He will be another one who fails to pay for his kids sooner rather then later . Some people just should NOT breed !!!

  30. Give credit where credit is due. He’s got 10 kids by 8 women. At least he’s working his butt off to pay his child support.

  31. How would you like a reality show about your 7 ex’s and your bastard children?! I suppose they would talk about how much they all loooove him. Only reason they even got offered the show was because of Cromartie. You think the show would want to talk about anything else.

  32. Basketball Wives and Sister Wives all in one show. Put them under one roof and you got The Real World on steroids.

  33. Hey, Cro, there is something called a vasectomy. Do the world a favor, get it and stop contributing to the over population of the earth.

  34. Chances are this idiot Cromartie and these women were and are quite perfect for each other. I have to smile when I see a total douche with a total biatch (or 8). I feel bad for the kids but honestly he must give off some kind of pheromone that attracts gold diggers.
    I used to know this guy (salesmen and world class slime ball) who married this awful woman. They are divorced with two kids. A couple weeks ago she saw his car at a bar and waited for him to leave. She then followed him, called the cops, and proceeded to let the kids watch their daddy get arrested. See what I mean it is things like this that make me believe in KARMA.

  35. I hope to God that he has a financial guy setting up some trusts for his kids b/c as soon as those football check stop coming in he is going to be brooooke w/ 250k/yr in child support payments….someone should go ahead and file a preemptive bankruptcy form for him.

  36. baron30…. don’t kid yourself, middle class americans are paying for these kids, it’s been going on forever. I’ll bet most of these mothers tell welfare they don’t know who the daddy is.

  37. like they weren’t gold digging in the first place when they slept with cromartie now they’re trying to use the kids as a way to get a show and make more money? that’s disgusting at least have the guts to say it’s about the money instead of saying it’s for the children’s benefit

  38. It’s a joke that this guy gets offered a TV deal. Yea let’s reward the guy for being a piece of trash and give him a TV show? People have no standards anymore…
