Marrying a football star may sound like a dream, but one NFL spouse has revealed the true reality.
Alison Rochelle, 27, the wife of Cleveland Browns DE Isaac Rochelle, joined TikTok after watching an episode of “WAGs” on the E network.
Allison, who married the Browns star last year, confided why being an NFL star’s partner isn’t as glamorous as the show suggests.
The couple were forced out of their home after Rochelle, 27, was traded from the Indianapolis Colts to Cleveland this summer.
At 6-foot-4 and weighing 260 pounds, the impressive former Notre Dame star was drafted by the LA Chargers in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Rochell has amassed an impressive career earnings of $5.1 million, with $1.18 million guaranteed for his new team this season.
Despite the wealth now coming into the home, Alison took to social media to dispel the “lie” that Wag’s life is all about parties and holidays.
Allison told TikTok fans:
“E! Network’s ‘WAGs’ show just aired and it gave us a glimpse into life in the NFL.
“That glance was a lie.”
“A week later he lost his job.”
And job security is at the top of the list as to why the glamorous lifestyle is a myth.
She continued: “Changes happen throughout the football season. You can lose your job even if you have a two-year contract.
“Even if you have a three-year contract, you can still get traded.
“You could lose your job even if you have guaranteed money. This lifestyle is kind of crazy.
“But I’m the type of person who likes to make plans and stick to them until something changes their course.
“Isaac is in his sixth season in the NFL and has learned a lot in the last five years.
“A week into the first season, he lost his job.
“The next day he was fitted [the] Almost five months after attending practice matches, he was added back to the main roster. ”
Allison also revealed that Isaac had to do the 36-hour road trip to Cleveland by himself because he was “too busy playing games.”
Rochelle impressed the Browns when he made his preseason debut against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
He recorded a sack in the 24-13 victory – but Allison knows it’s silly to get too comfortable.
She continued, “We could move to Cleveland all the way through, and we’ll be moving to another city in a week.
“But there is also the possibility of moving there and staying for the next seven months or the next three football seasons.
“It may be a crazy type of lifestyle, but it’s also a fun one, and I’m on my way to it.”
The Browns continue their NFL preparations this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles in their season opener against the Panthers on Sept. 11.
