Robin Lopez Dating Michelle Wie

Credit Sports by Brooks with another Mitch Johnson-like dish today. Jason over at SbB caught the news that one of Stanford’s finest Twin Trees is dating none other than the most overhyped golfer in the world, Michelle Wie. This is quite the news considering it’s the first I’ve heard anything of the sort. With reason according to SbB:

Ramona Shelburne of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED pens a piece on a day in the life of Stanford’s 7-foot-1 basketball brothers Brook & Robin Lopez.

Robin is dating Stanford’s current most famous female coed, golf phenom Michelle Wie, although both have tried to keep things as quiet as possible.

Well, looks like the cat it out of the bag. The over/under line for the amount of times we hear this story over the next few days while Stanford plays in the Sweet 16 is officially set at 50. Man, you figure if either of them would bag Wie, it’d be Brook since he’s the better player. Then again, he and Wie wouldn’t have anything in common; Brook actually makes shots in the clutch.

UPDATE: The two have been photographed together.

Eva Longoria and Mario Lopez Getting Cozy, Where’s Tony Parker?

Probably not the type of distraction T. Parker can use while his Spurs are on their rodeo, but looks like his wife Eva Longoria has been out getting cozy with Mario Lopez lately. It’s not much of a surprise that Longoria and Lopez are hanging together — their friendship is well-documented — but they’ve been known to have dated in the past. In other words, that can’t be a good sign for Tony and his relationship. Getting to it, Longoria and Lopez were spotted dining together in LA, and Mario was lavishing Eva with quite the gift:

Now I don’t know if Marcellus Wallace would consider this a foot rub, but where I come from, this isn’t exactly appropriate conduct for a married woman. It’s not much of a surprise on Mario’s end — rumors say that’s why Ali Landry divorced him — so this is just poor company for Eva, it would appear. Not exactly what Tony needs right in the heat of the playoff race if you ask me.

Ashlee Simpson Approves of Sister Jessica’s Boyfriend, Tony Romo

We already knew that Jessica’s pops approved of Tony. Heck, story goes that he’s the one who set ‘em up. Then again, this is the same dude who supposedly bragged about his daughter’s rackage, so that shouldn’t come as one bit of a shock. Well, now we know that the family support for Jessica Simpson’s boyfriend, Tony Romo, is unanimous. As Ashlee told US Magazine:

“I love him!” the singer, 23, gushed to Usmagazine.com at the FUSE TV Grammy party at Goa nightclub in Hollywood last night.

When asked if she is happy for Jessica, she replied, “Absolutely happy. He is really cool.”

Added Ashlee’s beau, Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz: “He is a cool dude.”

Well, he’s on TV just as much as you guys, he threw for a Cowboys record 36 touchdowns this year, and he’s the quarterback of the Dallas freaking Cowboys. Doesn’t get much better than that. How could he not be a cool guy sporting a resume of that sort. I’m not sure how they all got to know each other. Maybe it was at one of the sing-along parties, or who knows, could’ve been in Mexico. And let me tell you, between Carrie Underwood, Sophia Bush, and now Jessica Simpson, Romo certainly has quite the dating resume.

Michael Strahan Digs Jessica Simpson

This whole Tony Romo/Chestica Simpson thing has gotten completely out of hand. First you had T.O. dogging Romo saying Simpson was a distraction. Then you had Tom Brady supposedly give Romo advice not to have his chick show up at games. Then with the Cowboys limping into the playoffs and sitting on a bye week ready to face the Giants, there was heavy speculation as to whether or not Simpson would show up at the playoff game. Things got so out of hand that you could bet on the likelihood of Chestica showing up at the game. Well, the million dollar question finally was answered, and none other than Michael Strahan was there to defend Romo:

“Heck, if Jessica Simpson wanted to date me, I may give her a shot,” said the recently divorced Strahan.

Strahan said he couldn’t blame Romo for the trip.

“If he wanted to sit in Dallas, they would have found some fault in that because he would have been with her if they had pictures of them in Dallas,” Strahan said. “So for them to go to Cabo or wherever they went, good for them. They deserve that time off.”

“I think anybody who thinks that because he took a few days with his girlfriend that he is going to come back and not play well or he is not going to be prepared if anything it probably stokes his fire to play even better.”

I completely agree with Strahan here. Jason Witten goes to Mexico, but it’s a tree in the forest. Tony Romo goes to Mexico, and all of a sudden the world is coming to an end. Please. And who’s to say Romo wasn’t out having his fun during the regular season and still tearing up the league? Seemed like his 36TDs and over 4,000 yards passing would suggest he can perform despite partying it up. And come on, like Strahan says, if Chestica wanted to date you, wouldn’t you give her a shot? Exactly. Must I remind you of this?

Venus Williams and Hank Kuehne Now Possibly Engaged?

Venus Williams and Hank Kuehne

I told you before about Venus Williams and Hank Kuehne getting pretty close to each other and being photographed together at Wimbledon. Well, the cushy couple are now reportedly set to get married. It’s being said that boyfriend Hank has popped the question:

Venus Williams will soon be planning her wedding now that beau Hank Kuehne has popped the question.

The news of the engagement comes after a year of courtship.

A source close to the star tells MediaTakeOut.com, that the couple are trying to stay away from the spotlight especially as Williams is preparing for the Australian Open.

Venus is preparing for (the Australian Open) and she doesn’t need the (media) distraction, Contactmusic quoted the source, as saying.

Best of luck to the pair and hopefully the marriage works out. Hopefully Venus can find a way to balance her tennis career with a new love life and family, just as she was able to balance out going to college with tennis. Congrats to Venus and Hank if the rumors of the marriage are true. Now, who will be lucky enough to marry Venus’ bootylicious sister, Serena?

Anna Kournikova Might Be Engaged

Like I posted at FanHouse, the rumors are floating that Anna Kournikova might have gotten engaged to Enrique Iglesias. I for one, am not a fan of this news. Last we heard, Iglesias had no plans to marry or have kids with Kournikova (thank goodness). But now the reports say the two could be engaged:

Enrique Iglesias has sparked rumours he has proposed to long-term girlfriend ANNA KOURNIKOVA, after the tennis ace was spotted wearing a $6 million (£3 million) engagement ring.

The singer has previously refused to confirm the couple is engaged, but the sportswoman was photographed in London wearing a diamond on her left hand on Tuesday (04Dec07) in London.

Well, I have heard of waitresses wearing rings on their fingers to avoid being hit on all the time. Somehow I think this is slightly different. From Pavel Bure to Sergei Federov and now Enrique Iglesias, I’ve survived many rumors before. Don’t worry, Anna, I’ll still be here when you’re done with that chump.

Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson Again

Wow Tony, it’s getting tough to keep up with you. Last year there were rumors of you dating Jessica Simpson, but you put those to rest. Next it was Carrie Underwood. Most recently, it was hottie Sophia Bush. Then there was the whole Britney Spears incident. And now back with Chestica? At least that’s what In Touch Weekly is saying:

It was the day after Thanksgiving but Jessica Simpson’s family was more than happy to hold off their dinner so she could return home with her new boyfriend, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

The couple showed up at Jessica’s grandparents new home in Waco, Texas, on November 23 (a day late, since Tony had a game to play on Thanksgiving) and received a “heroe’s” welcome from Joe and Tina Simpson and Jessica’s grandparents, according to an onlooker. While Tony has denied reports that he and Jessica are dating, insiders say the pair are definitely involved and they’re getting more serious.

Tony, you’re quickly establishing yourself as the Derek Jeter of the NFL. But hey man, whatever works, you know? Brady’s nailing a super model and setting records, Romo’s kicking ass and working Jessica. Hmm, maybe that’s just what Eli is missing

UPDATE: Romo and Simpson are officially dating and were even photographed on vacation together in Mexico.
