It was two years ago today when an email popped into the Busted Coverage inbox with a very interesting subject: “Rex Ryan’s wife in foot fetish videos on youtube?” In those days I was still strapped with a full-time job away from Busted. The same email was sent to Deadspin and that crew broke the story in the afternoon of December 21, 2010. The emailer, Tom B., admitted that he was a foot fetish guy. He thought there was a story in that first email and the rest is Internet history. The New York media eventually pounced, Rex blew off the “scandal” and didn’t seem to have a problem being the butt of jokes. You know the story. What you might not know is that Rex’s alleged Alt.com account where he allegedly found men to appreciate his wife’s feet still exists. That is the account where VERY NSFW photos of a woman looking like Rex’s wife were posted. We’re not sure if the photos are still attached to the account because Alt.com makes you pay to see profile pictures. We’ll never forget. Long live Michelle & Rex’s wild sexual fantasies. By December 23,  Rex was answering questions from the New York media. Via the NY Post: “Obviously, I knew these questions were coming,” a somber Ryan told reporters after struggling for a few seconds to get the words out. “But this is a personal matter and I’m not going to discuss it.” Ryan repeated the words “personal matter” five more times before mercifully moving on to questions about player injuries and playoff possibilities. In those uncomfortable moments, Ryan clenched his teeth and hung his head — though he did perk up when asked directly about his wife, Michelle, his college sweetheart. “My wife’s beautiful,” Ryan said. “We’ve been married for 23 years. She’s awesome.” Filed under: Football
