Everyone gets to celebrate the morning after the wedding, but not in case of Shawn and his gorgeous wife. They had to take a flight to Oakland as Raiders signed the East at that time. She recalls the day and says:
“We lived out of a Hampton Inn for four months and we cooked from our hotel room and found our way around Oakland while he was training for the Raiders. A few months later, I flew to Rio to cover the Olympics as a commentator.”
