After losing girlfriend, NFL player speaks about decision to play: ‘She is my why’

When Cleveland Browns defensive end Chris Smith walks onto the field Monday night, he’ll be doing it in memory of his girlfriend, Petara Cordero, who was struck and killed by a car last Wednesday.

Smith, 27, has decided to play in the “Monday Night Football” game against the New York Jets because he knows Cordero, 26, wouldn’t want him to miss the game.

“I am going to play tonight because it is something she would want me to do,” Smith said in a statement to “She would want me to keep doing what I love and stay strong. I play for her tonight. She is my why.”

Smith paid tribute to Cordero on Friday with an Instagram slideshow, writing, “God has a plan for all of us we can’t understand but she is in a better place now and she can rest easy.”

The couple were on a highway in Cleveland last Wednesday morning when a tire malfunction caused their vehicle to spin and hit a median, according to the team. After they pulled over and exited the car, Cordero was hit by an oncoming Mazda 3.

The woman who drove the vehicle that hit Cordero admitted she had been drinking, according to WKYC in Cleveland. A toxicology report has not yet been released.

The tragedy comes during what had been a joyful time for the couple. They welcomed a baby girl named Haven Harris Smith in August.

Ever the proud partner and father, Smith shared a sweet photo of Cordero cradling their newborn.

“I’m so thankful to have another beautiful gift in this world my daughter Haven Harris Smith,” he wrote at the time. “You are such a blessing to me and your mother!! Love you Petara and Baby Haven.”

Why Isn’t Sharna Burgess on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ 2019?

Fans of Dancing with the Stars were shocked to learn that pro Sharna Burgess would not be returning to the ballroom for season 28. After winning last season with partner Bobby Bones, Burgess had been a favorite again; that all changed as the announcement of her absence was made among the casting reveals. With the network, producers, and Burgess herself silent, the theories began to grow.

Burgess is finally setting the record straight on what happened. In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, the dancer remembers how she learned the show would go on without her and provides some surprising information about the series itself.

My loves! Here’s my Interview exclusive with @etnow 💗 thank you @Katie_Krause 🙏🏻 #dwts : Sharna Burgess Opens Up About Her SHOCKING Exit (Exclusive)

“There was no hint that this would be the case. There never is, and, by the way, we all go through the same thing every season, we don’t know if we are back until we get that pick up letter,” She went on to say during the interview.

Unsatisfied by production and network answers, Burgess has some thoughts of her own about the events that led up to her dismissal. “Not everybody can love you, not everybody is going to vibe with you, maybe they don’t want a redhead this season,” she said. “There’s three blondes and three brunettes. I think maybe I stick out like a sore thumb and they don’t want that. Maybe it’s that my choreographing they kind of got bored with,” The dance pro said. The network nor producers have not commented.

The win last season was not without its own controversy. Some fans complained that Bones and Burgess’ win did not award the best contestant; they argued the show became more of a popularity contest. For his part, Bones spoke of his time dancing …read more
