Mark Sanchez Dating Hayden Panettiere?

The recent news of actress Hayden Panettiere breaking up with heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko has been accompanied by some Dirty Sanchez speculation. No, I’m talking about Mark Sanchez and Hayden now dating.  In typical athlete/celebrity couple fashion, Sanchez denied the rumors in an interview with NFL.com. It’s possible the Jets quarterback is also concerned about getting his face pounded by Klitschko, but in any event we’re happy to see he’s moved on from 17-year-old millionaires to wealthy women who are actually old enough to be granted access to a night club in America.

Rumor Fix via Terez Owens was able to capture a few photos of Panettiere and Sanchez hanging out, albeit at an In-N-Out Burger in Southern California.  As far as we know there was no sign of Tim Lincecum, so the Giants hurler must have been between meals at the time.  Of course, there’s always the possibility that the two are just good friends.  Doubt it.  For all of the pictures of Mark Sanchez with Hayden Panettiere check out Rumor Fix.

Amber Rose Confirms She and Reggie Bush were Briefly Together

Reggie Bush has been laying low lately, yet he’s found his name in the news a few times this week. The first occasion came when we learned his ex-girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, gave him a heads up on her engagement to Kris Humphries. Now we can add a twist to that because Amber Rose has confirmed the two briefly dated last year.

Rose told Vibe “Me and Reggie [Bush] dated very briefly after Kanye…We were both each other’s rebound and we both knew that and were cool with that.”

As Rose says, she was coming off her relationship with rapper Kanye West while Reggie was coming out of his relationship with Kim K. This confirms the longstanding suspicion many people had since the time the two were photographed getting cozy in a club.

We have no idea what led to the breakup between Bush and the Tush — we’ve heard many different theories — and the most entertaining of all was the suggestion that Kim was with Kanye. That would make it seem like he was seeking revenge by getting with West’s ex. Amber’s moved onto Wiz Khalifa now, but we really don’t know what’s going on with Bush. He’s elected to keep his personal life more private since breaking up with Kim, and that’s probably for the best. Being with her never really seemed to suit him despite how good they looked together.

Kim Kardashian Alerted Reggie Bush About Her Engagement to Kris Humphries

Kim Kardashian announced to the world Wednesday that she and long-time boyfriend athlete of the month Kris Humphries were getting engaged. They kept the details of how he popped the question private in order to preserve the romance of their relationship.

They made sure everyone knew exactly how the whole thing went down, telling People Magazine Humphries spelled out “Will you marry me?” with rose petals in her bedroom. She said yes (but not until getting a jeweler to confirm the diamond was over 20 karats), and they celebrated with two mini-horses decorated with glitter. Got that? Unicorns and glitter. Unicorns and freaking glitter. This is your life, Kris Humphries.

Anyway, the worst part of the story — aside from the mini-horses and glitter — is that Kim K. supposedly told ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush about the news before they made the announcement. Obviously we’re supposed to believe this was done out of consideration, but there’s no way that conversation went anything other than “You F***ed up. You see what you could have had if you popped the question? Now it’s too late.”

Think about this for a second — it was only a year ago that Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush had split up, and it was only September that she split up with Miles Austin. Apparently all you needed to marry her was a gigantic engagement ring and a playing contract with a professional sports team. I’m sure that’s no problem for Kris Humphries. After all, how can one not be exciting about being part of this the rest of his life?

Picture: Rory McIlroy Pounds Jagermeister, Continues to Own Golf World

Have I mentioned that I love Rory McIlroy?  Not lately?  Alright, well here’s a refresher.  In an era where we all got to see how much of a dirtbag Tiger Woods really is, this 22-year-old Irishman has done nothing shy of tear the golf world up.  He may have had a meltdown at the Masters last month, but that will happen to a young golfer and he seemed to take it in stride.  On top of that, his girlfriend Holly Sweeney is ridiculously hot and he has even called Tiger out before.  What more could you ask for?  Check out this picture of Rory McIlroy pounding Jagermeister:

Golf people will probably be up in arms about this, but the bottom line is he’s 22 years old (old enough to drink in the U.S.) and likes to have a good time.  Last time I checked that wasn’t a crime.  I love golf, but the stuffiness kills me sometimes.  Having guys like McIlroy around — who like to party without cheating on their wife a million times while they have kids at home — makes the game more entertaining.  It’s also a bonus that he does it without being a fat obnoxious slob like a certain John Daly.  Chest bump to Sports Crackle Pop via The Big Lead for the pic.

Did Pau Gasol Confirm Off-Court Issue with Girlfriend, Kobe?

It’s been a long month for Pau Gasol, and it looks like the summer will be even longer. On Friday we passed along a report saying Pau Gasol’s girlfriend broke up with him and that Pau was blaming Kobe’s wife for it. When asked about the report, Pau expressed dismay over the “lies” and Kobe said his wife barely knew Pau’s girlfriend.

Now that the Lakers were embarrassingly swept out the playoffs and went down dishonorably, Gasol seems to have opened up about some of the issues. From Bill Plaschke’s column in the LA Times:

“I have to learn from this,” Gasol said. ”I have to learn that when something happens off the court, you have to keep it off the court.”

He was referring to the report that he stopped talking to Bryant during the postseason because Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, had contributed to the breakup of Gasol and his longtime girlfriend. Lakers fans will remember that Karl Malone once publicly accused Vanessa of interfering with his personal life in a similar fashion.

As if that wasn’t enough, Marc Spears wrote at Yahoo! that “Pau Gasol … seemed to confirm reports that he was bothered by off-the-court issues. “I’m going to look back and see everything that’s been going on,” he said. “Try to handle it better. And whatever goes on, on or off the floor, just try to keep it that way and not let it affect anything that goes on on the floor.”

Pau Gasol Disappointed with ‘Lies’ About Girlfriend Trouble

On Friday we passed along a report from Media Take Out that was cited by the OC Register saying part of Pau Gasol’s problems in the playoffs were related to personal issues with his girlfriend. Specifically, Pau was said to have broken up with his girlfriend and that part of the issue was a teammate’s wife had played a role in the breakup. The source of the report (Media Take Out) is known for throwing crap against the wall, but it seemed to gain authenticity when the OC Register endorsed it with a post on their site. Later, OC Register Lakers writer Kevin Ding asked Kobe and Pau for their thoughts on the report.

According to Ding, “Pau expressed dismay at “lies” reported about personal life upsetting people “very close to me.” “To me, it’s sad.”

In a related tweet, he wrote “Kobe dismissed theory about discord between his wife and Pau’s girlfriend: “They barely know each other.”

Kobe didn’t outright deny the story, but he dismissed it. Pau called the story a lie. Still, I wouldn’t close the book on this one. LBS sources say the relationship between the two men has changed somewhat. They used to be quite close in terms of their pregame routine, but our source says that has changed lately. Additionally, both men could be denying the story just to keep it out of the public’s eye. If you had told me a few years ago that Dirk was engaged to an ex-criminal who had conned him and that he found out about it during a playoff run, I would have told you you were crazy, but that turned out to be true. And if you had told me the teammate of the biggest superstar in the league slept with said teammate’s mother, I never would have believed you, but that by all accounts was true.

The story about Pau and his girlfriend breaking up (and Kobe’s wife being the cause) might not be true, but there are two things we know: the relationship between the men has changed recently, and the Lakers have struggled on the court. As we wrote before, that report could explain it.

Are Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant Fighting Over Girl Trouble?

The Los Angeles Lakers are down 2-0 to the Dallas Mavericks and face a pivotal Game 3 Friday night. It’s looking bleak for the Lakers and a lot of their problems seem to be related to “trust issues,” as Andrew Bynum described it.

Many people didn’t know what to think of Bynum’s postgame comments, but it’s painfully obvious the Lakers aren’t playing the brand of basketball that’s gotten them to three straight NBA Finals and netted them back-to-back championships.

A lot of the Lakers’ struggles have been pinned on their superstar power forward, Pau Gasol. Pau’s averaging just 14.0 points and 10.5 rebounds per game against Dallas in the postseason and a putrid 13.6 points and 7.8 rebounds in the 2010-11 playoffs, all below his All-Star worthy season. Now we’re hearing that Pau may be sulking because of personal problems that may also involve Kobe Bryant. The OC Register explains:
