Silvia Mena a Salma Hayek Clone?

Earlier we told you about Silvia Mena, the woman who is suing Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth for abandoning her. Mena says she’s four months pregnant with Haynesworth’s child and she’s seeking $10 million in court. Jimmy Traina at SI Hot Clicks pointed out that Haynesworth was done in by a Salma Hayek look-alike. Luckily for us, The Big Lead did some quality reporting and they got their hands on a few pictures of Silvia Mena for us to compare. Check out the Silvia Mena pics and see for yourself if she’s a Salma Hayek lookalike. I have a feeling I know what your answer will be.

Albert Haynesworth’s Baby Mama Drama

Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth is being sued for supposedly abandoning Silvia Mena, a stripper from Brooklyn whom he allegedly impregnated. Mena claims that Haynesworth dumped her and refused to talk to her after he learned that she was pregnant in February.

To say I’m surprised would be a lie. Haynesworth has already showed us his selfish, “all about me” attitude on the football field this year by skipping out on his team’s OTAs. If Haynesworth can’t manage to be there for his teammates, why would we expect him to be there for his pregnant ex-girlfriend?

Now I understand that the questions will circulate whether it’s actually his child and whether he said he’d support her as well as other things. But it’s not like Haynesworth is hurting for money — he just signed a $100 million contract in 2009. Are you really telling me that he can’t afford to take an ex-girlfriend to the doctor? Something just isn’t right about this story.

If Mena wins her lawsuit against Haynesworth, he could potentially owe her $10 million. Wouldn’t it just have been smarter to take the woman to the doctor and get a paternity test when the child is born? If it’s not his, he has no financial obligation. If it is, then maybe they could have worked out a better deal. I guess we are going to have to wait for all the details to unfold but Haynesworth looks like he might be getting screwed on this one.

Dwyane Wade’s Ex-Wife Siohvaughn Wade Is Officially Crazy

A few weeks ago we ridiculed Siohvaughn Wade’s frivolous lawsuit filed against her ex-husband, Dwyane Wade’s girlfriend, Gabrielle Union. In the lawsuit, Siohvaughn accused Dwyane and Gabrielle of engaging in “sexual foreplay” in front of the Wade’s two sons. Additionally, she went way into the deep end by complaining that Dwyane gave Gabrielle a big present and the sons got medium-sized ones for Christmas. Those two details alone should be enough to clue you into the mind of this crazy lady. If you needed more proof, we now have it.

TMZ reported on Tuesday that Siohvaughn’s 9th lawyer (9th!!!!!!) quit. Now I’ve heard of people firing their attorneys because they weren’t satisfied — that happens all the time. But I’ve never heard of someone going through NINE freaking lawyers. Best part of all, TMZ says it’s the lawyer that dumped Siohvaughn. If that isn’t enough of a statement to let Siohvaughn know that she’s nuts then I don’t know what is. Think about it: Dwyane Wade is a multi-millionaire so a divorce attorney for his ex-wife stands to make a ton of money in the case. If they’re all quitting on her and not even sticking it out for the money then it must be unanimous: Siohvaughn’s crazy!

Tiger Offered Endorsement Deal Worth $100 Million…From a Gambling Website

Here’s a new idea, Tiger.  Instead of apologizing for all the terrible things you’ve done to your family and all the lies you’ve told over the years — why not embrace your new image?  Rather than fretting about the millions of dollars you’re missing out on as sponsors drop you left and right, why not seek out new sponsors — ones who want you to essentially say, “I’m a scumbag, I’m still rich, deal with it.”  That’s exactly what Calvin Ayre, founder and owner of the popular online gambling website Bodog, would like Tiger Woods to do.  In fact, he’s willing to give him $100 million dollars to do it.  Here’s what Ayre had to say about his offer to Woods, courtesy of CTV News via Sports by Brooks:

“If Tiger would just come clean and admit he likes to do the same things I like to do, I think he’d fit our brand perfectly. As is always the case in these situations it is the fact that you are living a life that is not true that actually causes the problem. If he’d just come clean and admit ‘This is who I am’ that I think there would be a lot of opportunity for him with a different image.”

Ayre is obviously a very smart and successful businessman, so he must know as well as we do that there’s no way Tiger is going to agree to something like this — no matter how much he offers.  If nothing else, he’s creating enough of a buzz just by making the offer known publicly.  I have to admit it is interesting to think about, however.  While Nike is running ads that are meant to more or less showcase the humility Tiger supposedly feels, there’s a whole new industry out there waiting for him to embrace his “bad boy” image and become even more wealthy doing it.

Siohvaughn Wade Upset Over Size of Present Dwyane Gave Gabrielle Union

I’ve made it quite clear in the past that I cannot stand frivolous lawsuits. They serve to liven the doldrums of lawyer’s and other people’s lives, and they are merely a nuisance. It’s a shame and a weakness in our legal system that we allow such suits to serve as a substitution for lazy people who should be otherwise pursuing a real job. With that disclaimer out of the way, let’s move onto the frivolous suit of the day. Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife Siohvaughn Wade have been fighting out an ugly divorce for a few years. One of the first shots fired in the case came from Siohvaughn who accused Dwyane of giving her STDs. The latest is a lawsuit from Siohvaughn who’s suing Dwyane’s current girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union.

It alleges Union “engaged in sexual foreplay” in front of [the Wades' two sons], which “severely inflicted the Plaintiffs emotionally and mentally.” It also claims that the boys received “medium size gifts” from Dwyane Wade for Christmas last year, while Union got “the biggest gift of all.”

“Defendant has played sexually explicit roles, including roles as a seductress,” the lawsuit reads. “Defendant has apparently decided to take her role beyond the films and into the home of a married man, Dwyane Wade, in the presence of his two minor children.”

I completely understand where Siohvaughn is coming from if she feels like Dwyane is abandoning his children; professional athletes are on the road for much of the year and that makes it difficult to be an active parent. I can see where she would be concerned by Dwyane’s behavior with Gabrielle in front of the kids. I can even understand her complaint that Dwyane has caused her mental pain. The problem is all that should be addressed in their divorce and custody hearings, not a separate freaking lawsuit where she complains about present sizes. Are you kidding me? Saying that Dwyane is focusing and spending more money on his new girlfriend rather than his children is legitimate. But complaining about the size of a gift seems like the worst way to prove the point she’s trying to make. Besides, isn’t this on Dwyane, not Gabrielle? Seems like Siohvaughn is trying to grab money and become a disturbance wherever possible.

Rory McIlroy: My New Favorite Golfer

In case you didn’t hear, a 20-year-old golfer named Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland dominated the scene at the Quail Hollow Championship over the weekend, becoming the youngest PGA Tour winner since Tiger Woods accomplished the feat a few years back.  The up-and-coming star finished the event at 15-under and won himself $1.17 million in the process.

Let the gossip begin as pictures of the young star’s girlfriend — Holly Sweeney — have been rapidly surfacing all over the internet.  The two have been dating since they were only in their mid-teens, and good friend Sports By Brooks directed our attention to the heat the now 19-year-old is bringing.  Here’s what McIlroy told the Belfast Telegraph about his girlfriend a few years back:

Holly is quite shy. This is the first time she has been in the media spotlight and she has handled herself really well, but I think she doesn’t want to turn into a typical girlfriend of a sports person, so she likes to take a back seat.”

That’s probably a good idea, Holly.  Sometimes “sports girlfriends” and wives find themselves being cheated on.  Not saying McIlroy has the morals — or lack there of — that Tiger has, but I’m sure girlfriends of golfers are now a bit more worried about their boyfriends cheating on them with porn stars than they were, say, last year. Sweeney doesn’t look to be very shy anymore to me, but that’s just my opinion. In any event, here are some pictures of Rory McIlroy’s girlfriend if you care to have a look at the better half of my new favorite golfer on the Tour:

Many Fellow Golfers Believe Tiger Juiced

Tiger Woods continues to find ways to look like a model citizen.  The National Enquirer is reporting that Woods’ has admitted to having sex with 121 women while married to Elin Nordegren.  Like we expressed with the recent post about the Dale Jr. situation, the Enquirer has been pretty accurate reporting these things thus far.  We’ll see if any truth comes of it — not that it matters much at this stage in the saga.  Maybe in Tiger’s eyes you cheat once, you might as well cheat 121 times, and that’s how the number grew into such an astronomical figure.  Maybe the report isn’t even true.  It’s not like Tiger can be made to look much worse with regard to his extramarital affairs at this point.

Tiger’s admitted that he cheated on his wife.  He made his public apology (whether you feel it was sincere or not), and is trying to move on.  One thing he could conceivably screw up further, however, is the legitimacy of his accomplishments as a golfer.  Last year, Tiger was confronted with accusations that he has used performance-enhancing drugs when a NY Times article linked him to a Canadian doctor whose name was tied to providing performance-enhancing drugs for athletes.  Tiger denied the report, of course, but it seems a good portion of the golfers on the PGA tour aren’t buying what he’s selling.
