Eric Dickerson Rooting for Saquon Barkley to Break My Records? … Hell No!!


Here’s some real talk from Eric Dickerson

With Saquon Barkley getting super close to breaking some of his cherished NFL rookie rushing records, we asked E.D. if he’s rooting for the NY Giants stud to take his #1 spot. 

The answer was about as honest as it gets … 

“HELL NO!!!”

Don’t get it twisted, Dickerson tells TMZ Sports he loves Barkley and thinks he’s a great player — but “You wanna keep them records!” 

Saquon has already racked up 1,753 total yards from scrimmage — creeping on E.D.’s rookie record, 2,212. 

Barkley also has 12 games with 100 yards from scrimmage — 1 game shy of tying Eric’s rookie record (13). 

But, what about the old saying, “Records are made to be broken?”

“People who don’t have records say that,” Dickerson replied. 

“When you have records, you don’t want ‘em broken. When you get to my age, you want to hold on to them as long as you can!” 

One record Barkley probably won’t touch is his rookie rushing record — 1,808. Saquon only has 1,124 at the moment with only 3 games left in the regular season. 

He’d need to average 228 yards per game over the next 3 … so, Eric can rest easy on that.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Break Our Hearts, Delay Visit to America

Happy news for fans of the Royal Family and of Suits alike: Meghan Markle is pregnant, for real.

But there is less happy news for the Duchess’ fans who live in the United States, because she and Prince Harry are delaying their visit.

The delay is because of her pregnancy. It will be worth the wait, however.

TMZ reports that Meghan’s royal pregnancy is putting the couple’s plans to visit their fans across the pond on hold.

As you may remember, the two of them were originally planning to visit America in the spring of 2019.

Spring starts about five months from now.

Well, Meghan Markle’s due date has been vaguely announced as being some time in the spring of 2019.

She’ll want to avoid flying immediately before, during, and after giving birth — for medical reasons but also for social reasons.

She may be the first American “princess,” but actually giving birth stateside might be a little much for the British public.

Meghan and Harry’s visit to the U.S. isn’t being canceled, however — merely postponed.

TMZ reports that the new plan has them hopping across tha Atlantic in the autumn of 2019.

It’s not really a surprise that they’re reconsidering plans.

Though Meghan and Harry went on their 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga, and Fiji, they toned things down a little.

Of particular concern was Zika virus, which can be transferred via mosquito bites and cause devastating birth defects.

There is exciting news, however, because now, on their royal visit, they’ll be expected to have their baby in tow.

Next fall, this royal baby will not only be born, but they could be as old as six months old.

What’s more is that Meghan Markle is expected to still be an American citizen at that time.

She is still going through the process of becoming a British citizen.

Though there have been other Americans who have married into British nobility before, the process remains slow even for a Prince’s wife.

Meghan’s due date, though officially scheduled for the “spring,” is said to be some time in the viscinity of May 2.

As a general rule, you don’t want to fly within your first month after giving birth. These two are waiting longer than that for their journey.

But as eager as people are to see this very special royal baby, we hope that Meghan and Harry’s stateside fans will be willing to wait.

A royal baby is exciting, but newborns are generally kind of boring.

If we’re talking about a six-month old, though, fans could get to see a royal baby who is old enough to look around and understand a lot of what’s being said.

Of course, we imagine that a lot of their visit will be spent in Canada.

Canada still has official ties to the British Royal Family because Canada is part of the “Commonwealth of Nations.”

Visiting isn’t just a social call, it’s about affirming ties in part of one of the world’s oldest political associations between states.

(The United States would be in a similar position had it not been for the Revolutionary War)

This was also the reason for the couple’s visit to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga.

Meghan and Harry’s visit to North America will be a big deal because of Meghan’s heritage.

Some, including TMZ, have pointed out that Meghan’s child could, in a very unlikely set of circumstances, become both British monarch and U.S. President.

Technically, this child will be in line to the throne.

Also technically, any American citizen — as this child is expected to be at birth — can become President.

But as entertaining as that idea may be, it would involve something unspeakably tragic happening to Prince William and all three of his children.

No one wants that.


Khloe Kardashian: If I Break Up With Tristan, He’ll ABANDON Our Baby!

Khloe Kardashian was swelling with both maternal and auntly pride when she shared a photo of five Kardashian babies in one spot.

But, according to a new report, it turns out that her private life is being dictated by her fears about True’s future.

Is Khloe clinging to Tristan because she worries that, if she leaves him, he’ll abandon True, too?

RadarOnline reports that Khloe is clingy with her cheating baby daddy for one reason and one reason only.

“Khloe’s worst nightmare is that Tristan will be an absent father to True,” the insider reveals.

The report is quick to make it clear that Khloe is still dating him for her own reasons.

“She loves him,” the source clarifies.

“But,” the insider continues. “The reason she’s clingy is because she doesn’t want him to be a part-time dad to True.”

Khloe’s fear is apparently that Tristan will be an absentee father to True “like he is to his son.”

Tristan’s son, of course, is one-year-old Prince.

Jordan Craig, pictured above wearing red, is Tristan’s ex.

This report claims that Tristan doesn’t make time for his ex’s kid in the way that he does for his current woman’s child.

The source says that Tristan only sees Prince “every now and then.”

Apparently, photos like this one of Tristan with both of his children, symbolize what is most important to Khloe.

“Every time Tristan brought gifts home for True,” the insider says. “Khloe reminded him to send some to Prince.”

It is heartbreaking to hear even an unverified report that a father had to be reminded about one of his children.

“She wanted him to spoil his son the same way he spoiled True,” the source explains.

Good for Khloe. You should always love your children, not just whichever one happens to be in front of you at the time.

Apparently Khloe’s concerns have a lot to do with her own issues.

We hate to call them “daddy issues” because it’s sounds dismissive, but … they’re daddy issues.

“Khloe was devastated when her dad died,” the source explains.

“And,” the insider continues, Khloe “wants True and Tristan to have a strong bond.”

Khloe wants Tristan and True to have a relationship “like she did with her dad, no matter what.”

Robert Kardashian’s death was heartbreaking for his entire family. He was a good man who adored his children.

Since the first — at the time, unfathomable — reports came out back in April that Khloe had not dumped Tristan’s cheating ass, people have wondered why.

Even then, people suspected that Khloe’s own issues related to her late father made her reluctant to break up with Tristan.

Some children are happy that their parents divorced, others simply adjust or cope. But others will spend their lives believing that it should never have happened.

Did Khloe refuse to break up in the first place because her own experience with divorce made her believe that True needs both parents?

We suspect that, on some level, even Khloe couldn’t answer that with absolute certainty.

Is this report true? We … kind of hope not.

Don’t get us wrong, it would totally explain why Khloe has remained with the man who humiliated her in front of the world at such a critical moment in their relationship.

But the report almost suggests that Khloe is using her affections to secure a father figure for True.

A real father — which we would like to believe that Tristan is — wouldn’t need Khloe’s smothering attention to remind him of either of his children.

If he really can’t be a good dad on his own, then tricking him into doing it isn’t doing True any favors.
