Beard says it was Edwards’ self-centered attitude that led to their inevitable breakup in 2006.
Former “Sopranos” star Jamie-Lynn Sigler has traded in a turtle for a cutter. The New York Post reports actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler is dating Cutter Dykstra, the son of disgraced ex-MLB All-Star Lenny Dykstra.
The Post says the two have been dating for a few months and that things are going really well. They say the couple met through mutual friends Yankees OF Nick Swisher and his wife, actress Joanna Garcia.
One look at either person’s Twitter feed shows they certainly interact frequently. They tweet with each other regularly and appear to discuss social plans often. It also looks like Sigler’s father has a baseball background.
Cutter is a former 2008 2nd-round pick by the Brewers. He struggled batting just .212 at high-A Potomac in the Nationals’ organization last season. He’s a career .258 minor league hitter.
Soccer player Ezequiel Schelotto broke up with his girlfriend, reportedly because his parents thought the model gave their son a bad image. Schelotto is a 22-year-old Argentine winger who plays for Atalanta in Italy’s Serie A. He began seeing model Mariana Diarco in December, but recently broke off their relationship, she confirmed.
Maybe I’m speaking out of turn, but I would think having a sexy girlfriend is exactly what parents would want for their son. Or maybe that’s just what the son would want, whereas the parents would want a nice girl.
In any case, Diarco has modeled in Maxim and even posed nude in Playboy. I guess it’s understandable why parents would be uncomfortable with their son dating someone whose nude pics are posted across the internet, but hey, the kid’s 22, let him have some fun.
There’s a saying to describe guys who overachieved to land their girlfriends, and it’s called “outkicking your coverage.” It’s not too common in the regular world, but it’s a pretty normal thing in the athlete world where hot women are sometimes willing to sacrifice looks for guys who have money and status.
With that concept in mind, we’re not saying Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea is an unattractive man, but he certainly outkicked his coverage to land former Miss Universe Zuleyka Rivera. Barea confirmed last year the two are dating, and they even have a child together.
The entire scenario was all too shocking for Clippers announcer Ralph Lawler, who was nothing short of stunned to learn of the development, even letting out a classic line “I’ll bet he enjoyed the All-Star break.”
We completely understand where you’re coming from, Ralph. On the court, Barea looks like a little squirt coming off the bench. But the guy is a good basketball player, and he’s treated like a celebrity in Puerto Rico, where both he and Rivera are from.
On behalf of Ralph, we’ll say this: Well done, J.J., well done.
Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders has filed for a divorce from wife Lauren Campbell, The Oakland Press reports.
The couple has been together over 10 years and Sanders reportedly filed for the divorce on Friday.
According to The Oakland Press, Sanders said there was a breakdown in the marital relationship and no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.
He’s seeking joint custody of their children, one of whom — Barry Sanders Jr. — committed to play football at Stanford.
Let’s just hope their divorce doesn’t get as ugly as fellow Hall of Famer Deion Sanders‘.

The Tampa Bay Rays are cleaning up this offseason. We don’t mean that the team’s roster has improved significantly. Tampa rarely makes any big splashes during the offseason but always remains in contention, so that isn’t a concern. As far as the players’ social lives are concerned, however, the Rays are dominating the league. Reid Brignac’s girlfriend, former Playboy Playmate Lauren Anderson, is reportedly pregnant.
As The Big Lead pointed out, the couple has a baby registry online here if you’re interested in surprising them with a gift. The discovery that Brignac and Anderson are pregnant comes just days after third baseman Evan Longoria confirmed that he is dating former Playmate Jaime Edmondson. Unfortunately for Derek Jeter, A-Rod has lousy taste in women. That leaves Brignac and Longoria as the kings of the left side of the infield in the dating world.
The photo you see above — which was shared by Jaime Edmondson herself — and a series of tweets have recently sparked speculation that a certain Rays third baseman and a certain Playboy model may be dating. Evan Longoria has ended any speculation by confirming that he is one lucky dude.
“Yes, we are dating,” Longoria said according to the Tampa Bay Times. “It’s been a secret for long enough; it’s not really been a secret, but nobody has asked about it. We are dating.”
“I don’t even think of her like that,” he said when someone reminded him that he’s now dating Playboy’s Miss January 2010 and a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader. “She’s actually more informed on sports. She did a fantasy football blog the whole year, and she does a show on Sirius satellite radio. So it’s pretty cool to be able to talk to somebody on that level outside of the whole modeling thing.”
Jaime does seem to know sports. Or, I should say, she is constantly connected with sports by doing things like recreating the Super Bowl’s best moments in a fun-to-look-at photo shoot and frequently being featured in Jimmy Traina’s Hot Clicks.
From the sound of it, Longoria found himself a nice catch. We had a hunch he was looking for love when he lobbed a couple of compliments toward Alex Morgan on Twitter back in November, so we’re happy for him. And a little jealous.
