Lamar Odom/Khloe Kardashian Getting Paid for Marriage?

33799PCN_Khloe

This whole Lamar Odom/Khloe Kardashian wedding news never sounded right from the day it came out. To say they met one day and were planning to get married the next day isn’t even a stretch. Plus, add in the fact that after dating Rashad McCants Khloe said she was swearing off ballers (I guess it’s a hard habit to kick). Then you mix in Odom’s previous long-term relationship and his kids and you figure it would take a little more than a month of knowing each other before they would decide to tie the knot. Well now it seems as if all those reasonable questions are being answered.

TMZ is saying that Odom now wants a prenuptial agreement but they won’t have enough time to draw one up prior to Sunday’s wedding. That means the marriage supposedly will be non-binding and essentially a sham, as Sports by Brooks wrote. To make matters more disgusting, TMZ also says that a reality show is paying for the million-dollar wedding — can you say Wag the Dog? So what does this all mean? It means the whole wedding is a paid-for sham and nothing more than a publicity grab. At least we’ll have to give them this much — it worked! But how shallow can you be to sell your love on TV? I guess Shawne Merriman would know something about that.

Roger Clemens and Alex Rodriguez Formed the Yankees’ Man Boobs Tandem

So we had the story that Alex Rodriguez has been using roids since high school. A-Rod was also suspected of steroid use while he was a member of the Yankees (no surprise to me). Corroborating that story was Alex’s reputation for having “bitch tits” or “man boobs” caused by the anabolic steroids. Well apparently A-Rod wasn’t the only Yankee with a moob problem:

According to “American Icon,” a book by the Daily News sports investigative team that will be released on May 12, Roger Clemens also sprouted breasts as a result of anabolic steroid use.

“The medical term was gynecomastia, but around the clubhouse they called them “b—- t—” or “man boobs” – and heaven help the player who sprouted them in the middle of his career and then took his shirt off in the locker room,” the Daily News reporters wrote in “American Icon.”

I think my whole excuse for this post is to show the A-Rod on David Letterman video which is where Jose Canseco says you really see them. OK, so here it is:

Yup, I definitely saw it there. Now we know where the nickname comes from.

Rihanna’s Looking for a Baller … Is it Andrew Bynum or Baron Davis?

Given all the off-court issues Andrew Bynum’s had lately, I’m not so sure that dating a celeb is something he should be doing right now. Much less a celeb who’s involved in a shaky breakup from Chris Brown amidst a potential physical assault incident. Regardless, multiple reports say the Lakers’ center was seen getting cozy with singer Rihanna last week. Bynum’s playing it the right way, not divulging any information to the paparazzi. But if Bynum really is getting it on with Rihanna, looks like he might have some competition.

Here’s lesson one in how to twist a story: Rihanna celebrating Baron’s birthday now means the two might have a relationship. According to the NY Daily News, “Rihanna is back in action! The sexy songbird was decked out in ’80s club gear at L.A. hot spot myhouse, where she helped L.A. Clippers star Baron Davis’ celebrate his 30th birthday — and danced, sipped Grey Goose and flirted with Davis and his teammates all night.” So that does say the two were flirting, right? I wonder what Teri Hatcher has to say about that. To use Ben Maller’s line, the good part about Baron for Rihanna is that the Clippers don’t beat anyone. Zing!

Jennifer Aniston Is After David Wright

Not that I keep up on this sort of thing, but apparently Jennifer Aniston’s relationship with John Mayer ended recently. Side note, if there’s anyone whose piece I’d like to switch with, it would be Mayer’s — his flawless dating record includes stints with Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, and Aniston. So back to it, now that Aniston’s on the market, she apparently has a few target audiences for her next conquest. As Sports by Brooks shared via Now Magazine:

A current favourite is US baseball player David Wright, 26, who’s in hot demand thanks to his bachelor status, £30 million contract and all-American good looks.

A friend of Jen’s tells Now: ‘She’s never dated a sports professional before and she says it’s an experience she’s definitely curious about, especially after hearing about Madonna’s passionate relationship with baseball star Alex Rodriguez. She says David’s her exact physical type, right down to his boyish smile.’

That weird “L” looking symbol would be for the English Pound, signifying where this rumor came from. One word of advice for Aniston: if you’re trying to model anything in your life after A-Rod, it’s probably a bad idea. I guess she’s just looking for some more P.R. to stay relevant. As for Wright, I might take this chance. The guy can bag pretty much anyone he wants, but Aniston has looks and status pretty well locked down. Too bad Wright might already be taken.

A-Rod Breaks Out the A-Game for Hooker

Hmm, where have I seen this before? Seriously, who isn’t Alex Rodriguez dating these days? With all the stories about the time he puts into sealing the deal with chicks off the field, it really makes you wonder how Alex Rodriguez even has time to practice and train for his profession. The latest from the New York Daily News says A-Rod used the same hooker service that Eliot Spitzer used. A-Fraud apparently used the service at least a half-dozen times before he pursued a relationship with the madam who ran the whole thing, Kristin Davis. A source said:

“He kept trying to reach Kristin. Kristin wouldn’t talk to most of the clients, but she said she’d call him back. She told me, ‘Don’t worry about sending him another girl. I’m going to go over there and have drinks with him, hold his hand. He spends a lot of money.’ ”

Though Davis’ agencies typically charged clients more than $1,000 an hour, Davis told a friend: “Alex didn’t pay me . . . I went out with him just because he was so flattering. I couldn’t not give in.”

A-Fraud supposedly sent the madam flowers and bought her jewelry and gifts. He apparently also told her that he used steroids, so you can add one more potential “source” for Selena Roberts who broke the A-Roid story for Sports Illustrated. If this is what we’re getting from the NY Daily News, you can only imagine what Roberts’ book on A-Rod will bring. I wonder what it’s like for Cynthia to read all this. Maybe she’s having a second divorce of the heart. Honestly, how does he even have time for baseball with all these distractions?

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen Are Officially Married

Much like Tiger who knocked up his wife while he was out with a knee injury, Tom Brady has been busy putting his personal time to use while he recovers from knee surgery. The Patriots’ QB wed his supermodel girlfriend, Gisele Bundchen on Thursday in Santa Monica, confirming the reports I posted back in August that they were planning to get hitched. The details from US Magazine:

The ceremony — which began at dusk — was “very small and intimate,” a source tells Us, adding that guests mostly consisted of immediate family. Brady’s son with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, John Edward Thomas Moynahan, was also present.

A pal close to the couple told Us Bundchen and Brady are perfect together.

“She’s definitely ‘The One,’” the source said. “She really makes him comfortable and just happy.”

Perfect together, huh? The only perfect completion for Brady that I know of involves him and #81 or #83, as long as they’re on my fantasy team. Two thoughts here: amazing how Brady is able to date a famous supermodel and wed her without much distractions, while Tony Romo can’t get through a month without a new Jessica Simpson issue. Secondly, how could something so big as the ultimate marriage go on in my town without me knowing it? I must be slipping in my old age. Meanwhile, I’m guessing Tom just did it for the money.

Alright, So Who Isn’t A-Rod Dating?

I’m really starting to wonder a few things here. For one, how the heck is A-Rod going to play this season with all the freaking off-field distractions he has. Two, how is A-Rod liking New York now that he has the paparazzi all over him. And lastly, since breaking up with his wife and moving onto Madonna, who hasn’t A-Rod been rumored to date? The man bangs a bunch of call girls you’ve never heard of and he’s also being spotted next to every celebrity. First Madonna, then Donna Karan on New Years, and now … Kate Hudson:

NOW that Madonna isn’t as interested in him anymore, Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez is playing the famous-faces field. He got hit on in Parrot Cay over New Year’s by Donna Karan, and last week he took Kate Hudson (above) out on a date. Our spy says they had a three-hour meal at the Lure Fishbar with friends and were very cozy. Later, A-Rod went with Hudson to the Rose Bar, where they met up with her friend Ron Burkle. Hudson, currently starring in “Bride Wars,” has been single since Lance Armstrong dumped her. Said her rep: “Kate was at Lure with a group of 10 people.”

That he and Madonna are no longer an item is news to me. And Kate Hudson? I’ve said it a thousand times before, Rodriguez can do so much better. All I know is that if I were in a fantasy league this season, I wouldn’t have A-Rod on my draft list. How do you expect a guy to hit when he’s got all kinds of people following his every move, privately or publicly? And didn’t he get a new P.R. team? Aren’t they supposed to be helping matters and keeping him out of the papers?
