Reporter John Shumway posed questions to Roelisberger on Tuesday during a KDKA and Pittsburgh Gazette interview. Obviously caught off guard, Roethlisberger stated: "Oh geez. Listen, there's always rumors out there about professional athletes, especially about me. You guys know that I'm not going to talk about my own personal life, I don't do that. My one singular focus right now is on the playoffs, on football, and trying to get to the Super Bowl. So, that's what my focus is right now."

As for Ben's leading lady, Harlan is a 2004 grad of Laurel High School in New Castle, Pennsylvania. Harlan graduated from St. Francis University with her bachelor's in health science in 2008.
