Skip Bayless’ wife Ernestine is not a fan of Charles Barkley and how he talks about her husband.
Over the years, Barkley has openly discussed his dislike for the FS1 host and even told Dan Patrick that he wanted to kill Bayless on live television.
Barkley: “You know what we should do for ratings? If I get a disease and I’m gonna die, how about you get Skip Bayless in here, and I’ll kill him live on national television.”
Patrick: “I like it. Like pay-per-view.”
Barkley: “No, no, no. Just get him in here. Only when I know Imma die….Cause I just want to get Skip Bayless in a room one time and beat him like a dog.”
Patrick: “So you’d kill him.”
Barkley: “Yes. Only if I knew I was gonna die. Not if I’m gonna live, cause I don’t wanna go to prison. Cause like Mahorn say, ‘they would love you in prison.’”
During a recent episode of his podcast, Bayless revealed that his wife Ernestine fears for his life because of Barkley’s comments.
“My wife Ernestine has believed for 15 years, that Charles Barkley is nothing but a sick individual,” “To her, he is just pure evil, that he is depraved, that he is a scumbag and she fears that one day, Charles will somehow…inspire some other nut to end my life. And this haunts her, this hurts her, because she believes that in the end, Charles Barkley would have my blood on his hands.”
“If that were Charles’s goal from the start, if that was his goal, then I congratulate him,” “Because he wins on this one. He has hurt my wife deeply.”
Skip says that he’s extended an olive branch towards Barkley by inviting him on his podcast to hash things out.
“I’m pretty sure Charles Barkley wants to kill me only because of what I say and what I’ve said on television…and that doesn’t bother me one bit. I have lost zero sleep over any of this.”
“I am definitely not running from Charles, several times while I was at ESPN and now at Undisputed here at FS1 to join me on TV and please explain to me in detail his problems with me.”
“Now that I have this show… I challenge Charles again; please join me on this show, on this platform, we could have a whole hour to go back and forth.”
