Even Prayer Couldn't Make the JoJo Starbuck-Terry Bradshaw Union a Marriage Made in Heaven
Apparently no amount of faith or good works could save the union. Two weeks ago JoJo packed up, left their Pittsburgh penthouse and filed for divorce on grounds that the marriage was "irretrievably broken." JoJo's urban lifestyle apparently had little in common with the down-home tastes of country music fan Bradshaw. "She likes the ballet, I like square dancing," Terry, 31, lamented. "She likes the bright lights, I like the soft moonlight of the ranch." JoJo, a 29-year-old Southern Californian, never tried to hide the discomfort she felt on the couple's 440-acre Louisiana ranch. "She thinks of it as being stuck out in the sticks," said Bradshaw, whose previous marriage, to Melissa Babish, a former Miss Teenage America, ended in 1974. "There's a whole lot of difference between Broadway and Holly, La."
JoJo reportedly has returned to California. How much trouble his second marital turnover will cause Terry and the Steelers may become clear when the football season opens Sept. 7. Meantime, Terry has another crisis to worry about. A brand of peanut butter he endorses—and partly owns—is faltering at Pittsburgh supermarkets. If Terry's Peanut Butter bombs, it will be Bradshaw's second extracurricular failure. His first was a 1976 C&W album called, ironically, I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry.
