Katherine Webb wants to have a pajama party with Kate Upton

Kate Upton Vanity Fair

Best pajama party ever?

Kate Upton is on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine, so Katherine Webb, girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, decided to congratulate her fellow SI swimsuit model on the accomplishment.

Katherine Webb and Katherine Upton … together in the same room … ordering room service … and having a pajama party? Oh, I dunno, possibly two of the most attractive Katherines of all time? If you’re having a bad day, just think of that visual for a moment and I promise you it will get better.

Oh, and Upton’s not the only one of the two to score a cover recently. Here’s Webb with McCarron’s mother DeeDee Bonner on the cover of Access:

Michigan’s Spike Albrecht thanks Kate Upton for coming to the championship

Kate-Upton-MichiganMonday night’s NCAA national championship game between Louisville and Michigan was one of the best NCAA Tournament finals in recent history. There were points throughout the night where it felt like neither team could miss a shot, which kept the game close until the last couple minutes of play.

One of those players who could not seem to miss was Wolverines guard Spike Albrecht, who drained the first four three-pointers he took before finally missing one. He finished 4-for-5 in the loss to the Cardinals and 9-for-10 for the tournament. The freshman was clearly carrying a ton of confidence with him throughout The Dance, which probably helps explain why he decided to make a pass at Kate Upton when it was over.

Upton, who says her family is loaded with Michigan fans, was spotted wearing Wolverine colors before the game tipped off. She insisted she was single back in February and denied that she is dating a certain MLB pitcher, so you can’t be mad at Albrecht for trying. The 20-year-old was likely feeling down after losing such a huge game, and I know just looking at Upton has cheered me up before when I’m feeling blue.

Let’s just hope Spike doesn’t get the same reaction this NHL player got when he tried to interact with the swimsuit model on Twitter.

Kate Upton cheering Michigan at national championship game

Kate Upton Michigan Final Four

While many people were focused on whether or not Chris Webber would make an appearance at the national championship game, the real question was whether Kate Upton would be in attendance to cheer on Michigan. We got our answer thanks to the supermodel’s Twitter account.

Upton tweeted a picture of herself outside the Georgia Dome about an hour prior to game time. She was with her younger brother, David, and someone who goes by Lucy Aragon on Twitter. Upton was wearing yellow while her brother had on a Michigan T-shirt.

Upton is from Michigan and her family is full of Wolverines fans. In fact, she told 97.1 The Ticket last year that the family has a reunion to support Michigan for its rivalry football game against Ohio State.

Kate Upton denies she is dating Justin Verlander: ‘I’m single right now’ (Video)

Kate-Upton-singleThere has never been actual confirmation that Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton are an item. Family members have seemed to confirm that the two are dating, but Verlander avoided the subject when he was asked about it back in October. On Thursday, Upton provided the most concrete information we have heard since the rumors began.

During an interview with FOX 2’s Jason Carr, Upton was asked about her rumored vacation in the Virgin Islands with Verlander around New Year’s. She was also asked if they planned to go public with their romance anytime soon, and that’s when things got a bit awkward.

“Actually I’m single right now,” Upton replied. “So, um, I spent my holiday in Melbourne, Fla.”

Everyone enjoyed a good laugh after that, but Upton didn’t look like she was joking. Were the rumors never true? Did Verlander and Upton split up? Is this my chance? Talk about a mind-blow.

Kate Upton: ‘My body was shutting down’ after SI cover shoot in Antarctica

Kate Upton Sports Illustrated cover

Kate Upton became the first model featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition since Tyra Banks over 15 years ago, but she had to endure a painful experience in the process.

Upton and a team of people traveled to Antarctica for the photoshoot that landed the 20-year-old beauty the magazine cover. Upton told “Today” Tuesday that shooting in the frigid conditions resulted in some health scares.

“I was very surprised by the news that that’s where my shoot was going to be located,” Upton told “Today” Tuesday. “It was freezing. I’m from Florida, so it wasn’t great for me. When I came back I was losing hearing and eyesight because my body was shutting down, it was working so hard to keep warm. I was thinking warm thoughts.”

Upton would wear nothing but a bikini in the freezing temperatures while shooting photos, which presented obvious risks.

“I could really only do it for a minute and then everyone would come running and throw blankets on top of me and they would build me like a little blanket cave,” she told “Today”. “I really went all out on this. We went there thinking we might not even get a shot, and came back with the cover.”

What’s the point of this story? Being a cover girl isn’t as easy as you think.

You can see video of her interview with “Today.”

Kate Upton bags on Notre Dame, Jets in same tweet

kate upton jets

Notre Dame was so embarrassing during the BCS National Championship Game on Monday night that even Kate Upton was making fun of them. The best part about the joke Upton cracked on Twitter was that it mocked the New York Jets and Fighting Irish in the same tweet:

Now that’s a low blow. If not for Darnell Dockett hilariously hitting on AJ McCarron’s girlfriend, Upton would probably be in the lead for tweet of the night.

And yes, she has said in the past that she is a fan of the Jets, which is probably what inspired the comparison between the two.

Justin Verlander won’t say if Kate Upton is his girlfriend

There has been intense speculation since July that Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and supermodel Kate Upton are dating, and even family members seemed to have confirmed their relationship. But the reigning AL MVP won’t say whether or not Upton is his girlfriend.

“I’m not confirming or denying anything,” Verlander told USA Today’s Bob Nightengale.

Nightengale says Verlander laughed while giving his response, and acknowledged that even his teammates are curious.

“I’ll leave that to my grandfather. God bless him,” Verlander said.

Verlander was referring to his grandfather, Richard Verlander Sr., who seemingly confirmed in an interview with Celebuzz that his grandson and Upton were dating. Verlander seemed to find it pretty disturbing that media members called his grandfather to get a story.

“I never thought I’d have to prepare my grandfather for the media,” Verlander told USA TODAY Sports. “It’s a whole different world. I can’t believe that people would call my grandparents. It’s tough when people start trying to dig into your personal life.”

Verlander’s father, Richard Jr., expressed a similar sentiment, finding it odd that someone would reach out to his 87-year-old father for the story.

Between sports fans and Kate Upton fans, there is heavy public interest in the subject matter. We understand why Verlander would attempt to keep his relationship status private, but based on all the circumstantial evidence, it’s pretty obvious that they are dating. No need for Verlander to keep matters private — he should be proud!
