The Washington Redskins may have lost to Detroit yesterday, but cornerback Fred Smoot has reason to feel like a winner: he got married on the QT the week before last. Incidentally, he also recently placed his 8,429 sq. ft. home in Great Falls, Virginia, on the market for $1.695 million.
For those of you who don't recall, Smoot was the alleged ringleader in the 2005 Minnesota Vikings "Love Boat" cruise scandal. While he was still playing for the Vikings, Smoot along with several teammates rented a boat and hired a bunch of prostitutes for an all-out sex party. YUCK!!!
Smoot later pled guilty to disorderly conduct and public nuisance charges, and the NFL subsequently fined him for about $82,000.
In 2007, he launched his own energy bar called SMACK. We certainly hope that's not in reference to his cruise antics!
Anyway, we dug up the video tour of his house (below). Watch it and you'll see that this is the typically hideous generic oversized home with oversized furniture and ugly decorative elements. Oh, and let's not forget the requisite fancy kitchen with granite countertops.
From here on out, we're going to just start referring to houses like this as "baller chic" to keep from repeating ourselves so much.
Unfortunately, there's simply not much to recommend the house or its interior design. Though we do think the virtual tour provided in the realtor's listing shows the house in a much better light.
So who's the new wifey? Summer Joy Hughes (above), a Georgia lawyer, who probably wants a classier looking crib. Smoot apparently likes to keep his hookers close and his lawyers closer! (Just kidding.)
Congrats to the lovely couple! We'll assume they didn't take a cruise for their honeymoon.
