The show even went so far as to dramatize a family dinner in which two empty chairs were set aside for Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn.
"Fame can change things", Ed Rodgers told the newspaper.
When asked about his family ties Thursday at the Packers' practice facility, the quarterback told reporters, "I just don't think it's appropriate talking about family stuff publicly". "He's going through great precautions not to make things worse", the insider told People.
The circumstances in which the family's private business became a national story were "weird", Ed Rodgers acknowledged.

The public first became aware of a rift in the Rodgers family when Aaron's younger brother, Jordan, appeared as a contestant on ABC's reality show The Bachelorette last summer.
As for whether or not the family can move forward together, Ed said, "It's complicated".
Sources previously claimed that Aaron's famous girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn, may be at the center of the drama. Jordan spoke about Aaron's lack of communication and closeness on the show and the media picked up on it. "I probably should've. I just wasn't familiar with the show, but my goal was to be honest with her every step of the way".
Jordan, a former college quarterback at Vanderbilt who never found pro success like his brother, will always live in Aaron's shadow. "You don't get any time off camera", Jordan added. Jordan has even spoken out about wanting his bro at his wedding with JoJo.
There's also a good chance that you'll be reading a lot about Rodgers' family, and that's because the Packers quarterback is now estranged from his mom, dad and two brothers.
