Sami Khedira’s girlfriend Lena Gercke told by team to not dress sexy for Germany’s semifinal match

The German Football Association has reportedly told Lena Gercke, attractive lady and the girlfriend of national team midfielder Sami Khedira, to tone down the way she dresses for the German team’s semifinal match against Italy in Euro 2012 on Thursday.

According to the Daily Mail, Gercke has gotten all the attention among the other German WAGs (wives and girlfriends) at the tournament, leading to WAG in-fighting and thus posing a threat to team morale.

Depending on how closely you follow German soccer, you may know Gercke from her racy German GQ cover with Khedira. Earlier in the tournament she was seen wearing a pair of “skimpy shorts” to one match.

Now the former winner of Germany’s Next Top Model has been instructed to “not to hog the spotlight” before Thursday’s big match, which sounds awfully similar to another ridiculous WAG-related soccer controversy earlier this year. The German FA wants to make sure all the focus will be on the game. And yet by making a big deal out of this, it almost certainly guaranteed that all the focus won’t be on the game.

This might be the most ridiculous thing ever.

Chad Ochocinco proposed to Evelyn Lozada while playing a video game

So Chad Johnson Ochocinco is getting married to model Evelyn Lozada next week and some details were spilled by the fiancee about how the proposal went down. Said the bride to be on V-103 with Egypt:

“I wish I had a really romantic story to tell you, but it’s not so romantic. A jeweler came to the house, had a few rings, he had my ring in a separate box. I, of course, chose that one. [Chad] had a headset on and he was like, ‘You like it?’ and I was like, ‘Yep’ and I put it on and he goes, ‘Okay cool,’ and he started playing Call of Duty.”

Cassanova Cinco! Not sure what’s worse than being rejected after one of the most important moments in your life for a video game. Maybe being ignored for another woman? No, because that would at least make Ochocinco look human. Ignoring her for a video game makes him seem more soulless than a Dracula that eats puppies for fun.

Models Bar Refaeli and Irina Shayk fight over Cristiano Ronaldo’s hair gel

If there’s one thing you don’t want to get in the middle of, it’s a Twitter argument between two models over hair gel.

The hair style and heavily-gelled look of soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo sparked some touchiness between models Bar Refaeli and Irina Shayk, the latter of whom has been dating Ronaldo for over two years.

It all started with a tweet Refaeli sent while she was watching Ronadlo’s Portugal team defeat the Czech Republic at Euro 2012 on Thursday:

The tweet was seen by Shayk, who called Refaeli a hater:

Landry Fields is now dating buxom, blonde model Elaine Alden (Photos)

When he’s not doing nerdy secret handshakes with his BFF Jeremy Lin, Landry Fields evidently can spit some game. We say so because Fields is now dating dime piece and model Elaine Alden, whom you can get to know better here. The two were seen a few weeks ago partying in Vegas, including at the Electric Daisy Carnival. This is what happens when you’re a professional athlete. Your move, Lin.

Jerome Boateng spends night with Playboy model before leaving for Euro 2012

Euro 2012 kicks off this Friday. And, as is customary, national soccer teams have been descending upon host countries Poland and Ukraine a few days early to get settled. The German team left Frankfurt for Gdansk on Monday afternoon, but it appears German defender Jerome Boateng wanted to get in some last-minute action with a buxom nudie model in a cheap hotel much earlier in the morning.

According to Dirty Tackle, the Bayern Munich star was spotted early Monday morning in the Mercure Hotel, a €79-a-night (roughly $98) joint near the Berlin airport, with ex-Playboy model Gina-Lisa Lohfink (SFW picture here). Boateng, 23, was reportedly seen at 3 a.m. leaving the former “Germany’s Next Topmodel” contestant’s room. And yet, supposedly nothing happened.

“Jerome wanted to get to know me,” Lohfink said, according to The Sun (link NSFW). “We met in the bar at my hotel around 2 a.m. We went up to my room but we just chatted.”

So, to recap: A German soccer star may or may not have had a late-night romp with a blonde bombshell roughly 340 miles away from where his team was set to leave for the most important international soccer tournament Europe has to offer less than 12 hours later. Yeah, the German coaching staff’s not going to be high-fiving Boateng over this one.

But it’s a good thing Boateng is playing in a tournament where this sort of thing is in some way encouraged.

Amare Stoudemire got engaged to girlfriend Alexis Welch in Paris (Picture)

It’s turning out to be a big summer for Amare Stoudemire. Eager to change the conversation from his whole fire extinguisher mistake, the Knicks forward announced a few attention-grabbing items in the last month.

Three weeks ago he announced he was going to college, and over the weekend he revealed he’s engaged after proposing in Paris to the mother of his three children.

“I have been planning my proposal for a while, and [Paris] … seemed like a perfect place,” Stoudemire told the New York Post’s Page Six. “I am so happy she said yes, and now we can continue to build our life together as husband and wife.”

I can’t think of anything more genuine and romantic than having a photographer standing by to take a picture of your engagement and sending it around to all the gossip mags. The engagement clearly is a PR thing; you really think athletes willingly get into Page Six unless it’s planned?

Jimmer Fredette got married, and DeMarcus Cousins wished him an extra special night

The Jimmer Fredette moment we all were waiting for finally came over the weekend: He got married to Whitney Wonnacott. The happy couple got engaged last August, and finally tied the knot on Saturday.

Given that Jimmer’s Mormon faith frowns upon premarital sex, the virgin jokes were in full form, including this one from his Sacramento Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousins:

I’m guessing their honeymoon in Hawaii was, shall we say, eventful. At least he’ll be able to avoid the same jokes Tim Tebow receives in the Jets locker room.
