Kobe, Vanessa Bryant attend Kings playoff game with their daughters

Is a reconciliation between Kobe and Vanessa Bryant coming? It sure seems that may be the case.

For the second time in two months, Kobe and his wife, who filed for divorce in December, were photographed together. In February, Vanessa attended the Lakers-Hawks game on Valentine’s Day and the two were pictured kissing in a tunnel.

On Sunday, Kobe stuck around Staples Center after the Lakers beat the Mavericks earlier in the day to watch Game 3 of the Kings-Canucks playoff series. He and his family watched the game from seats a few rows above the glass. He and Vanessa sat apart from each other with their daughters in between.

I don’t know what’s going on between them, but they’re clearly getting along much better than most couples who are supposed to be in the middle of a divorce.

Amanda Beard slams former boyfriend Carl Edwards, NASCAR WAGs in book

Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard and NASCAR driver Carl Edwards dated for a about a year from 2005-2006. Judging by her new book, “In the Water They Can’t See You Cry,” it sounds like the relationship was far from a healthy one. According to Beard, Edwards was controlling and selfish. From the sound of it, she also did not enjoy the NASCAR culture — particularly the interactions between drivers and their significant others.

Beard says it was Edwards’ self-centered attitude that led to their inevitable breakup in 2006.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler reportedly dating Cutter Dykstra, Lenny’s son

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 breaks up with ‘too sexy’ girlfriend at parents’ urging

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.

Various foreign reports say Schelotto ended the relationship because his family did not approve of Diarco. Some Italian reports even say the family thought Diarco was “too sexy.”

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.

Clippers announcer stunned to hear J.J. Barea is dating Miss Universe (Video)

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.

Barry Sanders files for divorce from wife Lauren Campbell

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‘.

Reid Brignac’s girlfriend Playmate Lauren Anderson is reportedly pregnant

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.
