Johnny Manziel's Sister Posted A Video Of Some Family Fun, But It Probably Didn't Have The Desired Effect
Maybe it's the cynic in me, but this video just gave me a deeper look into the life of Johnny Manziel and result was far from intended. I know that this was just his sister's attempt to show the world that Johnny is a loving son and caring brother instead of the drunken nomad that he's become in recent months. What it really showed me was why he became that drunken nomad. On the surface you couldn't possibly script a happier family. A hot mom and handsome dad that still show each other affection in public after all these years. Two healthy, attractive kids that get all along well enough to sit on each other's laps. It's the perfect little family. In fact, it's almost too perfect.
While the whole neighborhood is striving to be keep up with the real life version of the Joneses, the Joneses are behind closed doors falling apart at the seams. Just from that clip I have little to no doubt that Mr. Manziel cheats on his wife almost as often as Johnny wakes up in unknown places. Mrs. Manziel probably knows but her self esteem is too low to leave him so she just drowns her sorrows in tears and percocets. Johnny's sister? Ripe for an eating disorder. She may not even feel self conscious about her body, but with the amount of crap that family is dealing with she just needs to do something to stand out and dating a tatted up biker just isn't going to cut it. Not when she's trying to compete with an All American quarterback that went from a first round pick to an unemployed hippie in less than two calendar years. You may watch that video and saw "aww, what an adorable family", and that's exactly what they want you to think. The relationships that look flawless on the outside are always the most volatile on the inside. Things aren't always as they appear, and that couldn't be more true than when the perfect sitcom family somehow produces one of the biggest burnouts in NFL history.
