Greg McElroy’s Girlfriend Is Meredith Gray, His Sister is Blair McElroy

On the left you see Blair McElroy, who is Greg McElroy’s younger sister. On the right is Meredith Gray, who is Greg’s girlfriend. On draft day, Greg’s sister Blair was getting all sorts of attention because TV cameras were showing her right next to her brother on the family’s couch. It’s no surprise because Blair seems to enjoy the spotlight. That’s in stark contrast to Meredith Gray who seems to avoid it.

In an interview a year ago, Gray said about being with Greg “It’s been quite an adventure, that’s for sure. I just think it’s funny that people are so amazed. He’s a human being. He has relationships.” She was also pleased to have “never been on TV as Greg McElroy’s girlfriend,” in contrast to girlfriends like Rachel Glandorf.

Sorry Meredith, thanks to a classic mixup, you’re now receiving some attention as Greg McElroy’s girlfriend. After seeing Blair on the couch with Greg, several people went to twitter and started talking about Blair as McElroy’s girlfriend, prompting her to tweet “Good god I am not Greg’s girlfriend … lol”

Here are some pictures of Blair McElroy to help you distinguish between the two, courtesy of Blair’s twitter

Bianca Tai La Russa Is an Oakland Raiders Cheerleader (and Tony’s Daughter)

St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa shouldn’t have to worry about Adam Wainwright’s injury, because the true ace of his staff is in his family. Tony’s daughter, Bianca La Russa, is a dancer who just made the Oakland Raiders cheerleading team.

Bianca, who goes by “Bianca Tai” on twitter, announced the news last week. “A goal and a dream come true- I’m a 2011 Raiderette! I’m so excited to rep an organization that does so much good.”

Clearly she hasn’t been keeping up with the NFL as much as she has the Cardinals if she says the Raiders do so much good, but that’s besides the point. The point is that Tony La Russa has a daughter who is a Raiderette, as we first learned from Lob Shots and The Big Lead.

Here are some more pictures of Bianca La Russa who seems to have been a hardcore Raiders fan for quite some time.

Chris Bosh and Adrienne Williams Got Married? Bosh Denies it

Did Chris Bosh sneak one past everybody and get married to girlfriend Adrienne Williams earlier this month? It appears that way. TMZ obtained a marriage license from Dade County, Florida that shows Bosh and Williams got married on April 9th. Here’s the license:

When asked about the TMZ report earlier Saturday, Bosh said he and Williams had not yet been married. I’m sure he just wanted to keep everything quiet, but sorry Chris, court documents don’t lie.

Fist pound to Jocks and Stiletto Jill for the story.


Video Shows Rockfeller Sorel Initiated Contact with Gloria James

One thing we stress here at LBS is that there are two sides to every story, regardless of how juicy one side may be. While we try to get all information to you as quickly as possible, we try to reserve judgment until all facts emerge. With that in mind, last week we told you that LeBron James’ mother, Gloria James, was arrested for allegedly assaulting a valet worker at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami. The police report made Gloria James look bad because it described her as someone extremely drunk and somewhat unwilling to cooperate with authorities. TMZ showed video of the accuser, Rockfeller Sorel in an interview, and he appeared to be taking the innocent victim stance. Well now TMZ, aka the worldwide eye in the sky, has obtained security footage of the incident that shows Sorel initiated contact with Gloria James and was equally as physical with her.

While Gloria James may be obnoxious, rude, and giving her son a bad reputation based on her poor and questionable behavior, it does not appear as if she’s as bad as she was made out to be. This was a scuffle with a valet worker, and physical contact was exchanged in both directions. To me, it would be best for everyone if the whole thing just went away. Of course that won’t be satisfactory for Sorel nor his lawyer, but they don’t seem to have a case here and it’s obvious they’re just looking for a money grab.

Cheri Olvera, Chuck Knoblauch get Married

For those of you who are new to the case, Cheri Olvera is the ex-girlfriend of former All-Star Brian Giles. The two are in court settling a lawsuit raised by Olvera against Giles alleging breach of an oral and/or implied agreement they had while they were together, and domestic violence. The defense team at the law offices of James D. Scott have counter-sued, alleging abuse by Olvera (which is supported by this profanity-laced voice mail played in court). They’ve also argued that Olvera targets wealthy athletes to help support her desired lifestyle, which her engagement to former All-Star Chuck Knoblauch indicates.

To update you on matters, Olvera posted on her facebook page (displayed below) this week that the two are now married. She changed her last name to Knoblauch and changed her marital status from engaged to married. Their sudden marriage further supports her athlete-chasing ways, as did Mr. Knoblauch’s deposition that was played in court during the week.

During his deposition, Chuck listed some of the gifts he’s bought for Cheri during their time together. The list comes out to just shy of $50,000 based on Chuck’s estimates:

Aaron Rodgers and Destiny Newton Hit the Beach in Hawaii

It’s getting hard to keep up with Aaron Rodgers and all the women to whom he’s been linked. There have been rumors of him hooking up with Erin Andrews, then we heard he was dating actress Jessica Szohr, and then he was hanging with Stacy Keibler and Mila Kunis at a party. Well it looks like we can add another girl to the list — Destiny Newton.

On Friday, TMZ ran a picture of Green Bay Packers Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers at beach in Hawaii with an unnamed blonde. Splash News Online added many more pictures and a video but they were unable to identify her. But on Tuesday, both Black Sports Online and Terez Owens said the girl in question is Destiny Newton, who we’ve come to find out is from Chico — Rodgers’ hometown in California.

As of last year, Newton was bartending in Pacific Beach in San Diego claiming she had moved there about three years earlier. In her interview with Pacific San Diego Magazine, she said she was going to school for communications in addition to bartending. Destiny also has a sister named Shawntel who competed on Season 15 of The Bachelor. So whatta you think?
